I tried one of these last week. A golfing buddy has one..   Hated it. The sound made my ears ring. Even on flushed shots, it felt terrible. It felt heavy at impact. No thanks...
Sorry, but how do you come to this conclusion?? The model of the club has nothing to do with the alignment of the spine. Shaft manufacturers paint and label the shafts and the club  builders simply attach it to the head or adjustable hosel fitting so the label is usually on the underside at address. That shaft you have in your driver off the shelf is a substandard piece of equipment. A sleeve of golf balls is likely to be worth more. Aligning the spine on a shaft like...
Mizuno are not immune to falling into the category I am talking about. In fact, I just hate their JPX825 line, both forged and cast. I also have MX200s, and I removed the decals from the cavity because they bugged me. The 23's and the 25's had a much better look. The 59's border on too fussy for me, but they worked for my game type, so I got those, not knowing the 64's were just around the corner. Doh!!!!
Is it just me, or do other people think that manufacturers are going way over the top with club design when it comes to paint schemes, fancy cavity plates and other lame additions all to catch our attention?? I was in my proshop the other day, and I was looking at some stuff in there and honestly, some of the things wanted to make me puke. What happened to the good old days where clubs had clean lines, shiny chrome and black in fills. Some clubs are just hideous..but...
All my distances will be in meters, so add 10% for yards. These are the clubs I would use in these distance ranges to the hole, not how far I try hit them. I got some gaps, but I find a way I guess depending on the shot.   Driver: 250-265 average (and the odd one that will go another 5-10) 3W 220-230 carry + roll 3H 200 carry, what ever the roll does if I need it off the tee or par 5 approach. 4i 175-180(c) -190 roll 5i 165-175 6i 160-165 7i 145-160 8i...
I have a friend who plays of 18. He plays Callaway RaxrX  Forged. A players iron. Now, how hits his irons great. Gone from a 26 to 18 handicap, but he cant chip for sh!t. This is where he loses most of his shots..I hate the fact that people put an iron in a handicap category. Its total BS..if you can hit an iron regardless of its nature or your handicap, use it...if you like it, use it. If putting, chipping or driving is costing you shots, fix it. But if you like an iron...
Imagine cracking the sh!ts and slamming it into the ground, then spending your Saturday afternoon cleaning the dirt out of it. Its one big wank. Its uglier than an unplayable lie. I will never go down this road. The right shaft with the right loft is all you need. Good luck fixing your outside in swing with that club..TM, you're a joke and you're banking on all the hackers out there who think that this will fix their game from the tee..pathetic..
Newer drivers will definitely add distance. They dont spend all that money on R&D to hit the ball the same as there last driver. A mate of mine who plays off +2 upgraded his old Titleist 905 driver to a D3 and he added at least 20m on the carry. He has not problem hitting it 300m, and Im not kidding. So technology will help. I have added about 10-15m overall from my MP600 driver to the Octane Tour I have now. I actually hit it longer on some miss hits than if I flush it...
  What?? 2 degrees?? Look, I agree that the lofts might not be identical, but I cant see them being give or take 2 degrees. Inconsistent factors?? What, the shaft might not be part of that inconsistency?? Its likely to be most of it. If the spin rates were very different, its likely that the shaft is causing this, not a minor change in loft. I had a mate have his driver replaced by Callaway after it cracked. Same head, same shaft, 2 totally different clubs. Stock shafts...
For sure. Its been edited to the max. Does not look like her at all. Not my type anyway. Now if they decided to body paint Recari, that might spike my interest.
