Colour Coded Heads - JPX 900 HM

Fri Sep 15, 2017 1:06 pm

Posted by Rhyswt


Hello all,

Was just wondering if you could clear something up for me.

I just went for a custom fitting at a local club for a set of JPX900 Hot Metal irons.

End result was a +1" shaft and I believe 1 degree flat.  My question however is that throughout the fitting I was using the Hot Metal head with yellow coloured lettering, which I'm led to believe is meant to be 2 degrees upright?

Just want to make sure my fitter isn't confused and I end up ordering clubs with incorrect lie angle!

Any help is much appreciated.

Welcome to the forum.

You're correct in thinking the fitting heads with yellow numbering are +2 deg.

How did the fitter determine you needed 1 deg flat? Was it by strike position, strike board or some other way?

Thanks for the warm welcome :)

The fitter used impact tape on the sole and made me hit on top of a lie board.  The marking was towards the toe, which I would've thought meant I needed a more upright set?  (please correct me if I'm wrong)

Lie boards are a good start but there's more to it than just that.

My preferred way is using a vertical line drawn on the ball with a sharpie pen then hitting it, the direction of the line then indicates which way to go, it doesn't tell you exactly the adjustment needed but with practice you soon get an idea. Could be worth trying it with your current set up to try out.

The best tell though is where does the ball go?

Pulls usually flatter clubs, pushes usually need more upright.

All of it is of course irrelevant unless you've got a repeatable swing :)

Wouldn't you think he would have gone to a standard lie head first?

Doesn't matter what lie head it is, point I'm making is lie boards are a good start but there are better ways of working out correct lie angles. A decent fitter would look at more than lie boards IMHO.
