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.

Hi Tom, why are the lie of the 8/9 hybrid lower than it would usually be for same length irons, and can we tweak them ?

Thanks Tom, to those who want to learn everything about custom clubfitting, I highly recommend buying Tom’s textbook “Common Sense Clubfitting” . Its very well written and easy to understand and provides an honest assessment of how golf clubs work – a rare find indeed. Not sure, but you may be able to buy at Diamond Golf UK. https://wishongolf.com/common-sense-clubfitting/ On page 382, you mention how a wedge sole design should be reasonably well fit to the golfer’s swing and the design/condition of the golf course. My dilemma is how to fit a golfer with a steep Angle of Attack swing… Read more »

Hi Tom,

I have to tell you I’m so relieved to see you were able to keep the 730CL in your current product line. For some reason I was under the impression they were scheduled to be discontinued.

I have built a few 730 CL sets for clients and they fill a unique need for custom fitting requirements that can’t be found anywhere else in the golf industry.

Hope everything is going well for you and family.

Best regards,

Thanks Tom. I’ve got a partial set headed my way. I’ll probably dry fit to a D0 swingweight (my preference) and then assemble. Your answer above gives me a good start!

Hi Tom As I age 80 seems as though I could use a new driver I have THI 917 fitted 2015 s2s white in D2.5 swing speed hiver @80. after reading about the 730 it sounds as though would be well suited for it. If you have a reccomendation for which of you drivers would be best I would be welcome it. Recently got titleist T400 irons and love them.Don

Tom Hope all is well with you. I have a customer with a special needs child and he wants me to build a se for him. The boy hits the ball pretty well with good tempo but can only generate about 65 mph SS with his current driver. I want to fit him in the 730CL set. He hit the demo driver well as well as the long fairway demo I have. I have some questions regarding building his set. I noticed the only 6/7 and 8/9 clubs are hybrids where before there were comparable iron heads. He hits his… Read more »

Hi Tom,
my wife has a 730CL 5 Hybrid Iron that she really loves. However today I realised that at the sole the „W“ badge is missing (there is some borehole below).
is this anything of concern or is a repair needed?

Hi,
I recently purchased a set of 730CL hybrid irons and woods but the 6/7 club was missing. What shaft would be comparable to the standard 730CL lightweight shaft? (Oh, I even have a set of 730CL irons!)
Thanks!

tom, my 81 year old father currently plays the entire set of 730cl clubs i put together for him; driver to dw wedge. he had a swing speed of 70mph last time we measured a few years ago before putting together the set. he has asked my to put together a set of sterling one length clubs for him. his swing is not smooth with his wrists set up breaking soon into his down swing. can you see any advantage to putting together a set of one length clubs for him? would he gain anything from that many more clubheads… Read more »

Hi Tom, I have had my swing speed measured at 85. I got fitted for a high-loft (13 degree I believe) 919 driver and 3 and 5 hybrids in your 335 design. I can get 175 yards with 3 hybrid on a good day and made occasional friends with the driver. I currently play GI irons of 5-24, 6-27, 7-31, 8-35, 9-39 with 44 Pitch and 49 Gap I am happy with getting 7-P irons up and away but I don’t feel like there is much difference between 7 and 8 or 8 and 9 irons but 7-9 is too… Read more »

Thanks for the reply Tom. I find I am more comfortable with fairway woods than hybrids for lower lofts. I have been keen to try hybrids in higher lofts as the 5 hybrid was very reliable. I willl see if I can get a test of the 730 hybrids.

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?

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

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 »

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

Reply to  Charlie Head

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 »

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

Reply to  Joseph Mack

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

Reply to  Garth

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.

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?

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 »

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

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.

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

Reply to  Garth Manz

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.

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.

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 »
