Thank you for a brilliant design

“Thank you for a brilliant design.

I started playing golf in May this year, I’m 40 yrs old, and playing at 14 handicap at the moment.

The Sterling Irons® are so easy to swing, go straight, and look really classy. The 8 iron goes like a rocket off the face to 150 yds. Also, for the first time, I played shot after shot with the SW and GW without thinning (My main error) and even popped a few flop-like shots up high with the LW with the blade open.

I normally have no pitching game, but the SW was pitching nicely out to 50-75 yds. It was as if I had always been able to. So another weakness in my game instantly improved.

I have niggling back issues, upper and lower, and the longer length in the wedges feels so much more natural for me being a bit more upright.

I’m not exaggerating to say that the GW/SW/LW outperform and outclass my two Titleist Vokeys SM6s. They aren’t even in the same league. Both are destined for resale now…!

What a difference…

Sorry if this sounded a tad gushing, but I’m really pleased.

Thanks very much.”

There are two primary decision making factors for choosing between graphite and steel

Wishon’s Wisdom:

“There are two primary decision making factors for choosing between graphite and steel.

First is the major effect that shaft weight has on the total weight of the clubs. While there are steel shafts that weigh as little as 75-85 grams, the vast majority of steel shafts weigh in the area of 110 to 125 grams. And while there are some graphite shaft models as heavy as 125 grams, the whole reason graphite was developed as a shaft material was to reduce the weight of the shaft. o the vast majority of graphite shafts for irons weigh in the range from 85 grams down to 50 grams, with most being in the area of 75 grams.

Shaft weight is the #1 controller for the total weight of the clubs. Total weight is what you feel when you just lift the clubs and feel the combined weight of the head + shaft + grip. When you waggle and swing the clubs, then you start to feel more of the presence of the head weight, or rather the swingweight of the clubs. Both together are important in fitting to match to the golfer’s combination of physical strength + his swing tempo.

Typically the stronger the golfer and the more aggressive the tempo, the heavier you want the total weight and the swingweight. Strong golfer + average to smoother tempo means heavier total weight but not such a high swingweight. Average to weaker golfer physically + average tempo means not so heavy of a total weight and not so high of a swingweight. Weight fitting follows a logical path as you can see.

The other reason people opt for graphite shafts is if they have joint discomfort in the hands or wrists or shoulders. If the golfer finds that he is in more pain after playing with steel shafts, then going with graphite can help this just a little because graphite is a far better material for dissipating the vibrations from hitting shots and making divots.”

The Shaft – The Engine of the Golf Club or Not?

The Shaft – The Engine of the Golf Club or Not.

By Tom Wishon

After this many years in the golf equipment industry, I must say if I had a dollar for every time I have heard a golfer, or even a clubmaker, say the shaft is the engine of the golf club, it would probably pay for a pretty nice dinner with a good bottle of wine!

To say that the shaft is the engine of the golf club is to infer that the shaft is the most important component of a golf club. And no doubt, those who would vote in the affirmative have most likely changed shafts in a club and found they hit the club better than before with the new shaft.

The truth if you wish to stay with the automobile analogy is that the shaft is more like…

I‘m over 50 and in my third golf season

“I‘m over 50 and in my third golf season. I switched from a standard iron set to Sterling Irons® single length early this year and my iron play has improved a lot. A few weeks ago I even dropped my 60 and 56 Wedge and replaced them with the Sterling Blade Wedges and from the first moment they both were incredible easy to play. So now my favorite clubs in the bag are all Sterlings”
