 Ooops, not that I am currently supposed to do other things... Caught a break, watched a vid, did not think it out... Touche :D Your remark puzzles me - would that be a 48° loft club head delivered at 38-40° giving it a positive attack angle of 10° to 8°? If so, what sense does putting the ball back so far in the stance make - wouldn't it move the low point further back and make hitting up harder?
Zack Johnson's set-up for a flighted high spinning wedge shot explained.     45 degrees of spin loft maximes the spin - hitting down -3 deg. with a 48 deg. pitching wedge would be optimal. And off to the range we go...
 Yes, right, will do! Isn't 15 degrees launch angle sort of enough for my current speed? At 15/16/17, 1700rpms and 125mph the total distance would remain 228y, the carry would only increase from 182 to 189y.  Hey, interesting - so there is hope for me being a decade younger! Do you know your launch angle? Are you satisfied with the regular shaft?  With the TrackMan Range and the heavy, limited distance balls I am not sure if everything is fully correct. I found a few...
Yes, Erik, hit it too high on the face and may have lost 2mph+ doing so. Plus I hit heavy, flight reduced range balls, too. They would not be as fast as regular golf balls (lower COR).   My ball speed on the TrackMan Range is usually 120 average in the range of 118 to 123 max. Smash on the TrackMan Pro unit with the same balls (and settings to normalize performance) was 1.43 and up.   Again, I promise to do better to the get the SLDR hot face upping ball speed. At...
 Wow, nope. Neither convinced, nor looking for the truth in the equipment. Will try to hit it better and then see, what the "hottest face" of 2014 has to offer. Since I have permanent access to a TrackMan Range unit when practising, verifying numbers and working on my swing accordingly is possible.Thanks for the recommendations, will try to hit them in the coming weeks.  Time to fess up: guilty of a click-baiting subject sporting a little ignorance... But I did not know,...
Hi all,   thanks for the interesting discussion.   My official handicap is 28 (Europe...), I usually play around 15 over, best rounds last year were 6 and 8 over. My performance off the tee - LSW... - is too short to go flag hunting... Impact during testing was a little erratic, especially hitting the SLDR for the first time and switch back and forth to my old driver.   Been pondering the alternatives fiddling with the FlightScope Trajectory Optimizer. With a swing...
Hi all,   bought a used SLDR driver for cheap last week. Yes, I am late to the party, but finally succumbed to Taylor Made's driver marketing scheme of the last years.   Been still playing a TM R7 425 and thought hoped that newer technology might help a little distance-wise.   Here are the results testing my 2007 R7 425 driver against the SLDR 460. The test was done with a TrackMan Range unit using heavy, flight reduced range balls. I deleted the obviously bad shots...
 1,050 $ for a set of seven clubs (P to 4 or 9 to 3). Very competitive! Bet we see a good deal of new Hogan irons out there soonish. Am not sure that I like the brushed look thou.
Selling clubs by loft is nothing new for Mr. Koehler (SCOR wedges). I am curious if it works for an iron set, too. "Hoganfit" says it all. Getting fitted by picking the right club might be a new way to explore.   And I bet it is going to be an up-price exclusive product line. Miura comes to mind. We will see how attractive the Hogan brand still is.   Oh please Mike, loads of photos and try to hit a few balls with them. Am not so sure that I will get to see the clubs...
Oh, got mine a few weeks ago. Now I know how closely I followed the TST threads over the years. Familiarity strikes, but in a little more condensed forum than TST.   So, LSW is like your favorite sirup then...
