I have not had the opportunity to hit the 712U but I am interested in ordering one. It would replace my current 2 iron which is a 710 CB. I am curious if the 712U would have a noticeable increase in distance. Does anyone have any experience with this?
I don't have any experience with the ole butter knife, but I would assume it would go farther. My take was it would give a little more distance while keeping the feel of an iron vs a fairway wood.
I purchased my 712u (#2) in June and it quickly became my go-to club on par 4 & 5's off the tee--EASILY! I rarely hit my hybrid anymore ... The 712u is not like your typical 2 iron butter knife that many may fear it to be. It is considerably more forgiving due to the cavity back "insert" and yet there is no loss to distance. I have regularly been hitting on average 230 yards and have had it reach as long as 260 with rollout on a nice dry day. I can't speak highly enough about this club. One tip to remember--like any other club--if you maintain a solid base and steady head--swinging 80%, the ball will FLY! I hope this helped ...
Thank you for your input. I also play the DG x100 shafts. I have a very high ball flight and have a tendency to get a little too high and spinny so a lower trajectory is appealing to me.
Jon--I am using the sensicore s300's and really love them!!! It all a matter of preference to feel and preferred shot trajectory.
Where/how did you purchase it? i cant find a place to buy it.
Dalton, I know you can order the 712U with customization online at TGW.com, and Golfsmith.com. Hope this helps! I have a 704CB 2 iron, and I love it. On shorter par 4's, it is a go to for distance control and reliability, and I have great accuracy with it from about 235 out or so on par 5's. I am a huge fan of the 2 iron, however it seems most people are going to the hybrid and driving iron type of set up. I just prefer the workability that I get with a true "butter knife" 2 iron. Let me know how the 712U works out, It looks like a great playable option.
