Hi, I’m 3 weeks into Module 1 and starting to look for an old set of blades, which is not easy over here where I live in Italy, although I’m probably not looking in the right places - ebay does come up with much yet.
Anyway I have two questions:
I’m a high handicapper compared to everyone else here (17). What stiffness blades should I be using? Some blades I’ve seen have stiff shafts. Will that be too much for me or should I be looking to be improving with stiff shafts rather than regular?
What about more modern-day blades? Are they as good for this course as the older ones?
As an aside, I have been given some ladies’ MacGregor Tourney blades - no idea whether they are any good but they are ladies so probably not appropriate. I’ve had a little go with them at the range though, including the persimmon MacGregor driver. Have to say I really like putting a small club-head to the ball - there is only really one place to align the club-head to the ball as a result and I like that. With bigger club-heads you kind of wander around at address wondering where to put it. Had fun with the persimmon too. Believe it or not, I hit it better than my own driver which I hate, an 8 degree Calloway Hawk-Eye which has no feel in my hands. I had more feeling with the persimmon.
Thanks for any feedback about what shafts and whether modern blades are OK too.
