Swing Science has announced the FC-One Pro forged iron will be added to the Swing Science line up in May 2017. This is good news as the S800 forged iron had been out of the line up for some time.
The FC-One Pro forged head is made using 1025, or SC-25, carbon steel, even softer feeling, and more malleable, than the original S800 series forged released in 2008, which was made using 1035. They will come with a .355 tapered hosel rather than .370 parallel hosel. This allows use of the FC-One Pro iron shaft for players that have a a bit higher mid-iron swing speed with later release for a lower piercing ball flight or the use of Nippon .355 tapered iron shafts for various player swing types. The FC-One Pro forged head will come in a satin finish pictured above or black. I have yet to see the black or know how the finish will wear over time.
The will be a great forged head interesting to mid to low hdcp level players.
Golfers see this often in every foursome at least one or more members of the group are playing the incorrect tee box for their driver distance. The USGA and PGA came out with the “Tee It Forward” program in 2011.
There is a good chart on the link from USGA/PGA on what tee and distance of course you should use for your driver distance. Tee It Forward Guidelines
I am 85 mph driver club head speed and average 200 yards max. I should play 5400 yards not 6000. Not all courses have correct tee boxes for your driver distance. But these are proven good guidelines. They make the game faster and more enjoyable. To be able to drive the ball relatively accurately you need minimum 90 mph driver club head speed to play 3000 yard 9 hole 6000 yards 18 hole. Also one would need more center face impact to have good 1.3 – 1.4 smash factor which also means the majority of recreational players are playing to long of a driver playing length to make good center face impact. This all goes back to correct fitting of a driver. Golf is first a game of accuracy and then distance.
