Is Newer Better?
Does 5 years of technology make a difference?
I wondered the same thing
So I built the modern version of my current set of irons and decided to test them out
1️⃣First I tested my current 7 iron (2015) to get a baseline
2️⃣Then I hit the 2021 model with the same shaft from my 2015 set
3️⃣Then I tested 16 additional shafts on the new head
The results were in 🙌
Lets look at the top 5
Out of the 17 combinations, my top 5 was filled with my current head/shaft combo and 4 new head/shaft combos
WHAT MAKES THEM GOOD
The success of the top 5 comes down to 3 key components
It’s all about getting the ball to fly in the optimal window for the shot you’re trying to hit
It was good to know that my old set still holds up with the new stuff
Which is a good reminder that sometimes an older set can be just as good as a newer
But It’s also comforting to know I can gain an extra few yards with different shafts
The next step is going to see what moving into a game improvement or super game improvement category can do for my game
Move Better - Play Better
