I know there are so many discussions about this club but it's hard to filter through all of them.
My question is;
I am a lower ball hitter, living in Dallas you almost have to be, but it's hard to hold greens with the long irons so I carry a 2 Hybrid in the bag but have a gap to my 4 iron that I would love to put in the 712U 3 iron. I bought the cally X Utility, as the 712U wasn't out yet, but I couldn't get it in the air to save my life. I would hit it about 230 yards but about 20 feet off the ground, not really what I was looking for as I could sting my hybrid about the same. I need to fill gap between 210-225 yards as that's the gap between my 4 iron and a soft hybrid shot.
I don't like hitting a hard 4 iron because the dispersion gets too great and I can tend to float it off the tee (kind of opposite of my problem I know) so I want to know, is the 712U meant to get a piercing ball flight or does it get up in the air pretty easily? Is it pretty workable? I can hit a 4 iron high off the tee but not off the ground and I can't really work a hybrid all that well without really guessing as to how far it will go.
I know there's a lot of variance between players as well as what shaft options they went with so I am kind of looking for an answer from someone who has a lower ball flight to see if this club worked for them. Without it being in any retail store and not belonging to a country club, I don't get a chance to hit it or go to a demo day very often so any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I love the look but if it doesn't work for my swing then all it will do is look pretty in my bag.
Thanks and sorry for the long post.
