Hi Tom,

I opened my account on Diamond Golf and almost ready to start my shop. I will start by myself and build a new set. I am a left handed, low handicaper and always played forged irons. Had injuries to a knee and ankle and my swing changed. Do you recommend the 771? I want more forgivness and i still have good clubhead speed. I would put KBS C taper on. Thanks!

Tom, recently started looking for new irons. Handicap dropped from 18+ to low teens. Heck, broke 80 for 1st it,e in life… anyway, my swin coach was a Wilson sponsored player for years and he turned me into the new D7,s… found a 5 iron to try… had a project x roofless steel 6.5 shaft… I play to s300s currently (at 52). Working with jerry kibler in GA on shafts and he let me hit a 771 for the shaft…l now I am confused on heads…. dr for ged or 771… trying to understand the difference… help!,,,,,

Thanks Tom. I am currently playing Hireko’s warp speed. Probably play 8 iron 150 to 155,

I hope that I don’t cause you to take down the “Make a comment” section! What is your thoughts on my using my old 550C irons, at least in the higher lofts—say PW thru 7-iron? Or, would I just be better off going with all 771s?
I’m sure this will be one of my last questions!
Thanks.

Hi Tom, I’m in the process of being fitted with Alex Robertson in Scotland. Already had 1st session and schedule for the 2nd one. Im 18 hdcp currently playing Mizuno MX 26 thus wonder whether at glance I will benefit more from 771 or the 565 irons which whatever shaft combination (weight , flex & lenght) will provide better smash factor. I was able to hit some shots with a spare sterling 7i and felt very soft even by being cast, so u8nderstand that this 771 will be similar feel? On the other hand would be greta to learn more… Read more »

Hi Tom,
Many thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.
As said, I found High COR face very soft feeling so Im sure 771 is the way to go.
With regards to the 10 clubs configuration my bad, I missunderstood. For better or worse I dont fall into those slow swing speeds cstegory thus Im afraid I will still have to carry 13 or 14 clubs ;-p
Hope you can have the time and chance to come and try finnest golf courses up here. Cheers!

Hi Tom, Thanks for taking the tim to answer. According to your comments the 771 are then the way to go, as said I found them surprisingly smooth compared to another cast from major OEM. regarding the 10 clubs configuration, my bad, I missunderstood for the better or worse I dont fall on those slow swing categories thus will have to carry a proper set up in my bag.
Hope you may be alow to travel shortly and enjoy the fine courses we have up here

Cheers!

Hi, Tom—Art Smith here again. I promise not to become your worst nightmare, but just a couple of more questions before I have Dick Leach (Aiken, SC) build my set of 771s. I would like your opinion on my idea. I was thinking the following: Three of you specialty wedges—60*, 56*, and 52*. Then, weak PW (48*), 9-iron (42*), weak 7-iron (36*), 6-iron (30*), weak 4-iron (maybe a degree—24*?), then your 3-hybrid (normal loft). Add my two fairway woods, the Wishon 919 THI driver, my putter, and my set is complete with 13 clubs. I have no qualms about a… Read more »

Thank you for all of your help. I’m ready to go. I think I will test the 90 gram light steel first. The difference between the shaft I have now to test the six iron is 120 grams; the graphite is about what–70 to 80 thereabouts? It’s worth trying just to see if I might like the light steel better. I’ll have that set in a month or less, and then the wedges are next, since I have had pretty good luck with the fairway woods I have now. Your help has been much appreciated. And, by the way, the… Read more »

Hi, Tom–I hope that you don’t get this as a duplicate, as I posted much the same in your “Contact Us” section. I had the pleasure of meeting you at the PGA Merchandise Show a couple of years ago. I have been a big fan for a number of years. Interestingly enough, a friend of mine from college–and now on the Tom Fazio architect staff for the last 50 years or thereabouts–Andy Banfield recommended a club fitting place over 15 years ago. I got fitted with Wishon 550C irons, and I loved them (I still have them, although I can’t… Read more »

Hi, Tom–Thanks for your swift, thoughtful and helpful reply. May I ask how long it might be before your new iron design with the (I guess slightly) stronger lofts comes out? In truth, I am not especially hung up with distance per se. The number on the bottom of the club is just that–a number. I’m pretty good with “partial shots” (thank you Dave Pelz and the guys I taught with), so what do you think of starting with a PW and going through the 771s through the 4-iron? (Could I hit the 4-iron of the 771s if I have… Read more »

Hi Tom–Thanks again for your informative and very helpful reply. I don’t want to wait that long to get the new irons, so I am going to go with the 771s. My club maker friend made me a 6-iron with a 771 head for me to try. I practiced with it yesterday and was really impressed. I got great trajectory, pretty good distance, and good control, and it’s a good looking club–no clunky look like my current irons have. I had him put in a 120 gm steel shaft, as I told him my current set didn’t allow me to… Read more »

Hi, Tom. Sorry, one more question. If you were in my shoes (74 in a month; OK player, but not great–I’m happy to hit ten to twelve greens nowadays, driver speed of 90 mph) would you go with the 771s or the 979 SS irons. I just looked at those, and they have a slightly more forgiving sole (at least it looks like it does). I noticed that those are cast and the 771s are forged, but (after reading your books) I am under the impression that from a performance standpoint, that shouldn’t be a drawback. Sorry to draw you… Read more »

Thanks. My bad. I don’t know where I got the idea that they were forged. Maybe I was thinking of my old set made 15+ years ago. It’s not an important feature for me. Maybe the clubmaker can take an extra satisfaction of crafting a beautiful head from a block of material, but I have never been able to notice a difference.

Thanks again.

Tom, I am 63 year old, 10 handicap, 98 mph driver SS, who due to hand and finger arthritis wanted or needed to try graphite shafts. So I picked up a set of 755pc with Wishon speed rated regular flex shafts. Easy to hit but the shafts and helpful combating the arthritis but to light for my tempo. I have since then acquired 771 cs. 5-PW that I had Steelfiber i95 regular flex installed by Mike Brown of Hamden , CT. The compression, feel, distance and forgiveness is all there for me. He did have place to some lead tape… Read more »

Tom,
771’s with Steelfiber fiber shafts have been wonderful.Can’t say enough about them. I did ask about your thoughts about the 755 pc in direct comparison with them in an earlier post. I keep the 754 pc 4 iron with the wishon speed rated 85 gram shaft in my bag. Would it be even better to find and replace it with a 771 csi 4 iron? Thanks in advance.

Tom I have your 771CSI irons, which were custom fitted for me by Rene Cleaver, Cheltenham, UK, some five years ago. Subsequently she has retired. So miss her guidance. Im 54 years old and have a club speed range which goes from 88 to 60 mph, driver to wedges, and understand that as I get older my club speed will slow down. At what club head speeds, will I need to think about swapping my current clubs, a mixture of your designs and Maltby, all fitted by Rene, for the Wishon 730CL set or will the 771CS irons and other… Read more »

Thanks as always for your prompt and full answering of my question.

I look forward to many years to come of playing your designed clubs, irrespective of my swing speed.

Instead of spending my golfing money on equipment, I now can channel it into tuition and where I play, to enhance my golfing experience.

Thanks

Hi Tom After being dragged back on the golf course the last couple of years, I decided it was time to get properly fitted set of clubs that I could enjoy now and in 3 years for my retirement, I had been out of the game for 20 years and still using persimmon Citation woods and what was left of my Powerbilt scotch blades. So rather than drive out of town to a box golf store I went To Golf Club Technology here in Woodstock,ON. I met Rick and told him of my plan of return to golf. This was… Read more »

Tom,
I’ve been playing the discontinued 870ti irons with Xcaliber regular iron shafts for a few years. I’m considering upgrading to the replacement 771csi irons. I’ve had one clubfitter tell me that I would notice a big difference if I make the switch. In your opinion, would it make sense, and should I notice the difference? Thanks.

Hi Tom
Looking at getting fit with the 771’s. Being a lefty, I know I am limited to options. Was a 6.3 two seasons ago but have slipped back to a 10 having not played much since. Are there other lefty options with your models or is that pretty much it ? Also want a new driver. Suggestions ? By the way im 55 and swing speed prob not in equation as far as 100+ mph.

Thnx so much in advance

I have a full set of Wishon custom fitted golf clubs, putter to driver. However, what advice would you give me to match my clubs to the correct ball? What characterics should I be interested in? For example what number of pieces should I go for, the material of the outer layer and what compression rating?

Hi Tom
 
I have a set of your 771s and really enjoy playing them. I’m wondering if you have any thoughts on club grip selection? I have oversized grips on them now because I liked the “feel” when I first was fitted with the clubs. However, I’m considering going to “medium-sized” grips because frankly I have a better understanding of what I am doing with clubs in my hands now. Is it truly a matter of personal preference or is there something more to understand about how grips translate to performance? Thanks in advance.

Tom, My questions are more specific to clubfitting as opposed to product or clubmaking. In researching custom fitting and clubmaking, it appears that there are two predominant groups, and a much more select third group. The first group performs detailed comprehensive fittings that utilize technology, actual hitting balls with various combinations of heads & shafts, as well as body measurements, but then builds or orders clubs principally from brand-name OEM components. The second group builds high quality custom clubs to exact specifications (true artisans), but their fitting process is limited to body measurements, questions about how the player perceives his… Read more »

Hi Tom, I’ve seriously been considering getting a set of Wishon 771CSI irons custom fit by Paul Larson at High Plains Golf in Pincher Creek, Alberta Canada. I’ve never really calculated my exact handicap but I typically shoot anywhere from a 45 to 55 (depending on the day) on our local 9-hole, Par 37 course. So like a 90 to 110 on 18 holes roughly. I currently play PING G5 17-4 cast irons, 4-PW, steel, stiff flex with a blue dot (which I arrived at via their web fitting color code process about 10 years ago). They had standard grips… Read more »

Hi Tom, considering purchasing a set of these fine irons or perhaps another similar set. I know personally Kevin Redfern from Pinner GC who is a renowned golf club fitter and is only a mile or so from my home. I currently play with Ping G’s. My question is, being a small guy playing off 6 handicap I don’t like heavy headed irons. What are the lightest irons in the Wishon range?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Tom, I was fitted for 771CSI irons and 775HS hybrids 6 years ago and I’ve been extremely happy with them. After lots of use, they’re starting to show lots of wear and tear. I want to renew and get fit again either this season or the next. I’ve lost a bit of speed and consistency with age. I’m fine with getting 771CSI/775HS again but I’m curious if there are any successors planned? The hollow design of the EQ-1 irons sounds good but the single length setup doesn’t suit me. A few of the big brands have titanium alloy irons/taylormade,… Read more »

Hello Tom, 3 years ago I was fitted for a set 771 CSI irons and have enjoyed them very much. Recently, I got the impulse to buy another set of irons because they were “the best” according to all the reviews and hype. They were “fitted” to me online and I got a great price on them. When they arrived I was stoked to get to the range and do some comparisons against the 771’s. I fully expected to be blown away by the incredible distance and soft feel. Well, in total honesty and without a doubt, the fit, the… Read more »

Hello Tom,
I plan to work with Arnaud Maurin (Bordeaux – France) today I have Ping Anser 2011 with PX5.0 and I want to find more powerful and tolerant irons … I am 1.90 cm (sorry for my English I am French) and am left-handed.

What do you think of Mr Maurin?
and do the 771 csi match my needs with carbon shafts? (my speed is 86).

Thank you in advance for your return.
Cordially.

Hi Tom. I was fitted by Tim Mosel about two years ago for a full set but did not get new irons as Tim said my current ones were ok. I did get new woods and hybrids and one 771CSI 8 iron to replace my broken 8 iron. My irons are now 10 years old and want to replace them. Do you think I need to get refitted after two years or just have Tim make them based upon my fitting two years ago?

Thanks for the input.

Hi Tom, I just wanted you leave a comment concerning my recent fitting and purchase of the 771 CSI irons from Jeff Hatton in Marlow, England I made an appointment with Jeff following recommendation from two friends who had already experienced his quality service. I had previously bought a set of ‘fitted’ OEM irons from PGA Pro working in a retail outlet. After a few months playing with them my game and confidence were rock bottom. They just didn’t feel right. I never felt like a Jeff was ‘pushing’ me towards buying a new set. We merely discussed all options.… Read more »
