 For what it's worth: I'm kind of a golf ball aficionado, and I like to try different balls (particularly inside 100 yards).  Historically, I have found that the wedge spin rates, relatively speaking, have not always matched up to Golf Digest's charts.  For example, the 2011 Z Star was located high up in the chart in terms of half wedge spin, but I found that it didn't spin all that much (everything else about it was great).  I think it had to do with the fact that the Z...

So I had my Proforce V2 tipped with the Amp Cell adapter.  It was very helpful because I was able to keep changing shafts for a good comparison.  With the V2, I was more inconsistent, but I was hitting pulls and some low hooks with it.  I did not do that at all with the other 2 shafts.  I also had a Graphite Design Orange AD-6 S-flex which I was hitting similar to the stock shaft (mostly fades with the occasional straight ball). But, given that the V2 was over-correcting...
We're scheduled to go down next month, and I just realized that 4 of the 5 courses will be overseeding about a week before we get there.  Who has played down there under these conditions, and what were your thoughts??   Even if the sand is no longer on the greens, do they play like shag carpets?
I actually have a Proforce V2 76g Stiff in my old driver.  I did like it, but it's attached to a Callaway Hyper X and fells like I'm swinging a rock now.
That's kind of the problem.  I've had difficulty trying out shafts since my driver is last years model, and places don't have shafts with the correct tip. I have adjusted the setting to draw, and it does help to an extent (not perfect), but I would prefer to get a better shaft and play the neutral setting if possible.
I'll check these out.  Thanks!
Thanks for the reply.  My avg driver spin rate is around 2100 with a 14* launch.
First of all, thanks for reading and any replies.   Second, just assume that my swing is not the reason I'm not getting the ball flight I want.  It's the shaft.   I'm a 7hcp, ~100mph ss with a relatively quick transition, and I've been taking lessons all season from a respected pro in my area.  I generally do not have issues with slicing, but 8 out of 10 of my drives have a 10-15 yard fade.  I play a Cobra AMP Cell 9.5* and I have ideal launch/spin stats: nice high...
 I appreciate your thoughts/insights.  I decided on Caledonia.  When I played the Pine Barrons course a couple years ago I was with 2 of the other 3 players I'll be with in MB, so they have seen that type of layout before, and my Dad is really into gardening/horticulture so I think he'd enjoy Caledonia more (assuming the flowers are still in bloom). Also, if/when I go for my next trip I'll likely plan to play northern courses so, assuming I don't go back to the Murrell's...
