730CL SET

 

 730CL Driver & Fairway Woods

  • Designed with a thinner face expressly for golfers with a swing speed of 80mph or lower to increase ball velocity.  Golfers with a swing speed of 90mph or higher are NOT to use this driver.
  • The 730CL driver is designed with a High Launch loft of 16° to match correctly with swing speeds lower than 80mph to generate the proper launch angle for maximizing distance.
  • The 730CL Long and High Fairway woods are 20° and 26° loft respectively, and are perfect lofts for a golfer with a sub-80mph swing speed to use to get the ball up easily off the fairway and generate proper distance in between the two woods.

730CL Hybrid Irons

  • 730CL hybrids are designed with 6° loft increments because golfers with a sub-80mph wood swing speed do not achieve a useable distance difference between clubs made with less of a loft difference.
  • Sub-80mph golfers who sweep the ball off the ground or who have difficulty hitting the ball high enough with conventional irons should opt for the all hybrid irons in the 730CL set

730CL PW & DW Wedges

  • A perfect match and complement to the 730CL set for the <80mph swing speed player are the PW (48°) and DW (54°).
  • DW is a Dual Wedge, designed with the right balance of bounce sole angle for use in the sand or in tall grass around the greens.
  • 730CL wedges are designed with a taller heel profile and more level topline slope angle, to better “frame” the ball on all shots.  From the sand, the higher heel profile of the DW does help push more sand out behind the ball to assist the slower swinger in getting the ball out of the sand more consistently.
  • Both PW and DW are designed with a 0.370″ bore to accept the matching 730CL wedge shafts.

could a similar set like this be set up for a mid 90’s swing speed guy? I do not get to play as often as I would like, but would be more consistent if it was set up like this

Fred Huff

This sounds like a set I could use, since my measured driver swing speed is at or slightly less than 80 mph. Do I under stand correctly that there are 8 club heads in the complete set?

Michael P. Ohaneson

Hello, Tom. Just wanted to add my thoughts about this amazing design. There are lots of senior golfers in my area, and in the past I have built sets for them as well as for ladies using components from another company. Those sets turned out well, but these are extraordinary. It’s the difference between a good set and an exceptional set. My golfers are thrilled with them. Ball flight and distance up! Thank you for all the hard work you have done to develop this superior line! Best to you! Michael

Tom Wishon

MICHAEL Thank you Michael, I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by and share your comments and experience with custom building the 730s for the golfers in your area. I’m really pleased that your golfers have found with your good work on the fitting and building, that the 730s can really help them enjoy this great game a little more. It really was simple, as it just involved using the specs and concepts that over the years I know will make golf clubs just a little easier to hit with decent consistency and results. Much appreciated and may… Read more »

Charlie Head

Hello Tom:

I have been playing the 730 set for about a year now, love them! But; I have a question: I need a little better distance off the turf, with my 20 deg fairway. Would going to a 20 deg 929 give more distance, with the same length and Ruby shaft? Does it have a lower, more rearward CG?

Tom Wishon

Charlie Thanks very much for taking the time to stop in and offer your comment with a question. I’m pleased to hear you like the 730 set! In all honesty the change to a 20* loft 929 fairway wood would not likely increase distance by more than a single number of yards. The high COR face of the 929 does offer a little more ball speed but at a clubhead speed of less than 90mph the increase might be in the area of 2, 3, 4 yards over the 730, providing both clubs would be the same length of course.… Read more »

Joseph Mack

As I advance in my seasoned citizen years, shorter length clubs are much easier for me go hit then longer clubs. I’d like to shorten the 5h and both fairway woods to the same length as the 6/7h. The clubs all have A flex ruby light shafts. How much will this effect the swing weight of the clubs?

Tom Wishon

Joseph The rule of thumb you can use is that a golf club loses 3 swingweight points for each half inch that is removed when the club is made shorter. You did not say what the length of your clubs is so you’ll have to determine that and then use this guideline to do the math to know. In general when you shorten existing clubs by an inch or more, you do not usually need to try to add weight back to the head to achieve the exact previous swingweight. But you do need to add weight back to the… Read more »

HI Tom, is the ferrule for the 730CL hybrid iron “any .335 WD STD ferrule (12.3mm)” p24 or “ferrule 121- HY-IR (13.8mm) p78. Thanks

Tom Wishon

GARTH
The 730CL hybrids use any ferrule that is made for use with any of our fairway woods such as the 121-WD-STD. That would be a ferrule with a bottom OD of 12.3mm and an ID for a 0.335″ shaft.
TOM

Garth

HI Tom, does the second weight bore just use a hosel bore weight? does the medallion snap on and off or should I buy the replacement medallions?
Thanks

Tom Wishon

GARTH There is no weight bore chamber under the TW medallion on the toe end of the sole of our driver models. This includes the 730CL as well as the 919THI. It is there for cosmetic purposes only. At one time years ago I did try to put a weight bore there on my driver models but testing proved that the presence of the weight bore cylinder extending down inside the head changed the sound of impact badly – it made impact sound too loud so I dropped the idea of ever having a sole located weight bore on any… Read more »

Garth

HI Tom, re the ferrule for a 730CL iron hybrid. The 2018 TW Catalog on p24 says to use any .335 WD STD ferrule (12.3mm) yet on p78 it mentions ferrule 121- HY-IR (13.8mm).
Please clarify which is the correct ferrule . Thanks

Tom Wishon

GARTH
Sorry for the confusion in the catalog. All of my drivers are made with a 13.0mm diameter for the top of the hosel. So every one of my drivers is to use the Ti ferrules which are 13.0mm for the diameter of the bottom of the ferrule – 121-Ti for the plain black ferrule for 0.335″ tip shafts for all my titanium driver heads.
TOM

Garth Manz

HI Tom, if the 730CL 5Iron is fit to 38″ and using 1/2″ increments, would the 6/7 hybrid be cut to the 6iron length (ie 1/2″ shorter) or the 7iron length (ie 1″ shorter)?
Please explain how to choose.
Thanks in advance

Tom Wishon

GARTH
Whether for men’s or women’s length or any other in between or shorter length, the difference between each 730CL hybrid iron is to be 1 inch. so if the #5 is 38, then the 6/7 would be an inch shorter and the 8/9 would be 2″ shorter than the #5.

Marinó Pétur Hafstein

I live in Iceland. Started golf a few years ago for my retirement which has started. Progress is slow. The more I read and watch DVD about golf the more I get confused. Went for a golf fitting done by, Mr. Björnsson Birgir with a flightScope technic. He recommended your product for me, Wishon 730CL . Driver not longer than 44”. Now using a 45,25” long with a 12 loft. 730CL fairwoods, 1 long with with 20 loft and a high 26 loft. 730CL Hybrids, 5,6/7 and 8/9. And 730CL wedges PW and DW. My question is where can I… Read more »

Tom Wishon

Mr. Hafstein Thank you very much for taking your time to come out website and post your question. You absolutely did the right thing to go see Biggi and to work with him for your fitting needs. I have known him for many years now through our technical correspondence. Biggi would write to me with his technical questions and I would answer to help him increase his knowledge. At this point I can tell from the depth of our discussions that he really is one of the 10 or 20 best clubfitters that I know in the world. I would… Read more »

I would like to know if the 730cl driver is bendable? Would like my club fitter to lower the loft to 14 or 14.5 degrees. I hit this club well, however I hit it so high that I believe I could get a bit more distance with a bit lower loft and get more roll.

Pattie Johnson

I have always only played with irons vs hybrids. Your 730CL ruby light AA flex hybrids were sold to me as I was told to update my clubs. I have never had trouble hitting my irons. Will it take me awhile to get used to them as I was a bit discouraged my first time at the driving range. Should I have stayed with irons or will I get used to these hybrids? Thus, hitting the ball further?
Thank you for your response.

Tom Wishon

PATTIE Give it 2 to 3 ball striking or playing sessions/days with the new clubs and if things are not up to your satisfaction, then get back in contact with the clubfitter/clubmaker who fit you and built the clubs and tell him or her what’s going on, what specifically you are doing and not doing with the clubs vs the way you hit your former clubs. Things like this are always a matter of the fitting – the combination of specifications the clubs were made to have to try to fit you and your swing. ALL of the clubmakers are… Read more »

Thanks Tom for the technical answer. In my mind I have always thought that hybrids in a similar loft (say 19 or 20 degrees) would be more accurate than a fairway wood in the same loft. At least that has been my experience. So I am one of those guys that jump from the driver to a 19 degree 3 hybrid. I received my 730cl 5, 6/7 and 8/9 hybrids from Ray Richards today. Looking forward to hitting more greens in the future with those clubs. I do however like the idea of your two 730cl woods as if those… Read more »

Tom: It sure is helpful to be able to change the lie on your clubs. I have had the 730 cl hybrids now for a week that Ray put together for me. I checked the lie on those clubs in my yard using a net and impact tape and a marking pen. Found that all the lines were going toward the toe, so the lies were a bit too upright for me. I have long arms relative to my height. Any way Ray bent them -2 degrees and after checking the lies again I found that all the marking pen… Read more »

Tom: I am curious to know why you went with a 20 and 26 degree fairway woods with this set and not hybrids with similar lofts? Just wonder what your thinking was and or what your data showed.
Thanks,
Jerry

Tom Wishon

JERRY Sure thing. A few reasons for that decision, some which are technical in nature and the others which are more “esoteric” or let’s say, dictated by the usual buying trends of the market of golfers. Technically, fairway woods almost always have a lower and a more rear located center of gravity than will hybrids. This is because the typical head shape of a fwy wood is less tall and definitely more broad from front to back than a hybrid. With the lower lofts associated with fwy woods, that lower and more rear located CG can help get the ball… Read more »

Tom: I have a question about the 730cl hybrids. Is the steel in the face of these hybrids a different kind of steel that has more spring to it? The reason I ask is that a club fitter in the Melbourne, FL area (Ray Richards) made me a test club of the 730cl 6/7 with the Ruby lite A shaft. I have never hit a 36 degree lofted club as far as I do this club. I have played several rounds with this club and have really hit the ball straight, high and with great accuracy. I really like the… Read more »

Tom Wishon

JERRY No, the 730CL heads are a standard investment cast 2 piece construction made from 431 stainless steel. It is not a spring face, higher COR design. It is the same steel used in the 730 fairway woods as well as our 335HL hybrid heads. I’m guessing a reason you note a little better performance is chiefly because of how well Ray was able to choose the fitting specs of the clubs to better match your swing characteristics. That coupled with the design of the heads to put the center of gravity a little lower in relation to the ball… Read more »

Joe Mack

Tom: What’s the standard length you recommend for the 730CL driver?

Tom Wishon

JOE: We are strictly a custom fitting company in everything we do so there is no such thing as a standard length for anything we design. However, because we do have to design a spec head weight for every model, that does mean we have to choose a basic length that allows the club to come out within a normal range of swing weight within a reasonable range of shaft weight and grip weight. Based on that premise, the 205g spec head weight of the 730CL driver head when built with a 60-65g shaft and a 46g avg grip weight… Read more »

Gregg Giblin

Tom, I have been a self taught club maker for many years, and while I will put my knowledge level up against many, I will quickly admit that many know more, and that in all situations, I would be more than happy to listen to what you have to say. I pretty much agree with you that custom club fitting is the way to go, although, like anyone, occasionally I will come across a club that has nothing in common with specs that should be right for me and I find myself striping it every time. The problem then becomes… Read more »

Tom Wishon

Sure thing. it was back in the summer of 2002 when I was finalizing all the head designs for our first year in business in 2003. In the testing for our first hybrid model 321Li, I had anticipated designing the head with a 0.370 bore so that one could use any iron shaft in the assembly. After all, I saw hybrids as iron replacements so I was designing mine to be built to iron lengths and with the same iron shafts the player would use in his conventional irons. But in testing, it just seemed that the ball flight from… Read more »

Doug Patterson

Hello
I am an improving 54 year old 28 handicapper with a relatively slow swing speed. I am off average height (6 foot)and I live in the north of England. Would my best option from your range be the 730cl ?
I want to go with your designs but the marketing done by the major brands sways me towards them. I have however read your book on searching for the perfect golf club.
Thanks
Doug

Tom Wishon

DOUG Thanks very much for taking the time to visit our site and pose your question. We’re always happy to help. The key to having your next equipment purchase result in the best performance possible is going to be first and foremost, to get fit by a clubmaker who really knows the knowledge and has the experience to analyze you and know without question what your best complement of fitting specifications and clubhead and shaft models need to be to best match your swing characteristics. There are a number of very good clubfitters in the UK, so if you would… Read more »

Ned Cole

My wife is 5′ 1/2′ tall and would not likely travel for a club fitting. I think the 730 CL clubs would enhance her enjoyment of the game. What measurements would we need to get her into a full let of 730CL clubs?

Tom Wishon

NED The best way we can help to identify all of the proper fitting specifications for your wife is if you can answer the questions in the YOUR FIT Fitting Information Form, as accurately as you can, and then click at the bottom to send the information to us. We’ll analyze everything and respond with a list of the full specs for the 730CL set. we offer this service for golfers who either do not live conveniently to a good clubfitter or who wish us to perform the analysis based on accurate answers to the questions on the form. Here… Read more »

Michael Sutherland

Do you now, or will you make the 730cl clubs in a left hand model? I have a small woman that plays a good bit but other than her driver can’t get balls up well, and these clubs seems ideal for her…but she is a lefty.
Thanks,
Mike S.

Tom Wishon

Michael I am sorry that we do not offer the 730CL in left hand. The demand for left hand in any model has never been greater than 8% of what the right hand version sells and when you consider women’s models in left hand, the average demand from my experience in the industry has been less than 4% of the total demand in right hand for the model. So I am very sorry to say that the demand has just not been there to tool up the 730CL for production in left hand. In left hand to help the lady,… Read more »

Tammy

My husband had a set of series 7 Tom Wishon clubs made for me , several years ago and I really like them! I need new covers for my 5. 7 and 9 fairway woods where can I get them?

Mario Ramirez

Tom,
The 730CL concept is simply brilliant!
I built a set for young man who was trying to make his high school golf team. Being small in stature, this set was a the perfect technology.
He had been playing with his father’s set with which he struggled greatly and was not improving. With the new set, improvement was almost instantaneous .not only is this young man enjoying this great game of golf, he is excelling … Last week he shot even par for nine holes!
Regards,
Mario Ramirez

Tom Wishon

MARIO
Wow, that’s really great to hear! We can only imagine how good the young man felt when he instantly started to hit the ball better. And a really big pat on the back goes to YOU for identifying that the young man needed help with his equipment. Good for you and thanks so much for being there to help the young man!!
Best to you in this great game!
TOM

Joëlle Joguenne

Dear Mr. Wishon,
I would like to know if the 730CL series is also a available for left hand players ?
If not, which other iron series from your catalog would you recommend for a left hander woman (49 years – handicap 32) ?
A last question: Any clubfitter to recommend in Belgium ?
Thanks a lot for your reply.
Best regards,
Joëlle Joguenne

Tom Wishon

Ms. Joguenne: Thank you so much for your interest in our company and our designs and technology. We do appreciate that very much! I am sorry but we have not developed the model 730CL clubheads in a left hand version yet. In its place, for the irons I would recommend our model 979SS in the left hand. it is designed with slightly less tall head sizes in the lower loft irons in the set, and all of the 979SS iron heads are designed with a little wider sole to bring the center of gravity a little lower in the head… Read more »

Jason

Tom,
What shaft do you suggest for the golfer who wants a 730CL conventional iron (8/9), but wasn’t recommended a Ruby Lite shaft by the Shaft Fitting System? The Shaft Fitting System suggested a S2S Green Iron A (tipped .5″) and an S2S White Hybrid AA (not tipped).

Tom Wishon

JASON The S2S Ruby Lite iron shaft is a 0.370″ tip diameter so it will not fit into the 0.335 bore of the 730CL iron or 730CL hybrid. The shaft fitting program cannot know what clubhead model a golfer would want to use. And in this case it is a bit unusual because we did design the 730CL irons and hybrids with a 0.335 bore. Fortunately the weight and the bend profile of the Ruby Lite is very close to the S2S Green, so for the 730CL iron, you can use the Ruby Lite A tipped 1/2″ and you will… Read more »

Yes this set is a winner for all slower swingers. Covers all the bases and easy for the golfer to quickly learn what club to use from what distance. Very uncomplicated and makes for a lightweight bag too.
