How's the Nike Dymo's MOI compared to Nike SQ Sumo 5000 MOI? The same? Higher?

Drivers are USGA limited to 5900, so they are all pretty much the same. The square models will be higher than the round ones on the whole though. The Nike and Cleveland are the highest. But, to be honest, more driver MOI is a crutch at best. Practice with an old persimmon driver, and learn to make solid, center contact, and you'll feel the modern driver is almost too easy to hit.

Beau Rials is right. It's the Hammer X with the X-shaft. I believe the MOI is 116,200. I added 127 yards to my drives with it. In fact, I stopped hunting with a scoped rifle and exclusively use the Hammer X. NASA contacted me to request that I stop hitting golf balls in the state of Alabama! Kra-kow!

I'm sorry...I saw the infomercial this morning. To me, it is the Citizen Kane of commercials. Jack Hamm is on Facebook, too. Check it out...

Diamond Tour Golf Flying V- I can only hit it striaght! If you like boring golf from middle of fairway,this club is the one. Your fellow golfers will snicker and giggle when they see it, but after they hit it, they will want one!

I have 12degree with Pro Launch Platium shaft (45")

Even though they say it is banned,it doesn't come up on USGA list of non-conforming drivers(as of 5-24-10)

The USGA can't list

every non-conforming driver ever made, so of course it may not be there. Just because it's not on thier banned list doesn't mean it's not illegal. In fact, to play a driver in a tournament, it's quite the opposite, it must be approved for play. This thing doesn't conform, that's for sure.

There is nothing in the design of the Flying V that would make it illegal. BTW, I bought the head before they had the banned banner on it

Yes there is, appendix II, rule 4a:

The clubhead must be generally plain in shape. All parts must be rigid, structural in nature and functional. The clubhead or its parts must not be designed to resemble any other object. Sub-section: Severe or Multiple Cavities in the Outline of the Back of the Head: A severe cavity is one in which the entrance of the cavity is narrower than its width at any other point. Multiple cavities are not permitted (see Figures 32c and d). Cavities in the crown of the head are permitted, even if they are primarily designed for sighting, aiming or head alignment, or to accommodate markings for such aids (see Figure 32e). However, cavities in the crown of a driver head are filled for the purposes of evaluating the head’s volume (see Design of Clubs, Section 4b(i)). See fig 32. c:

Hammer drivers don't conform. They're just a marketing stunt.

and hippo hybrids aren't that extreme.

The Flying V cavity is larger at entrance,so it conforms.

fair enough about that.

But the site doesn't state it's the heads fault. it's the COR that's the problem!
The current USGA rule limiting the coefficient of restitution of a clubhead states that the COR cannot be higher than a measurement of 0.830. This means that when the clubhead impacts the ball, there cannot be more than an 83-percent transfer of the energy of the head to the ball.

so the "flying V" has a cor of more than 0.83.......

after i posted that, i realized that the hippo hybrids like the hex head in your post look like pic (b) which is legal according to the rule. Im sure Ive seen some hybrids or woods somewhere on ebay that look like (d) but I guess it wasnt the hippo ones. Though i really dont see why they would be nonconforming, they do look odd at address and I dont think they would be easier to hit.

    • Longer or More Accurate?
      That doesn't make it a trick question. People aren't so lousy with accuracy that they're off 200 yards, but their tee shots travel 200 yards toward the target fairly often. The 10% thing helps to adjust them to the proper scale. I hit my driver 270, but I don't miss by 1/4 of that distance (67.5 yards). The wildest 100-shooting golfers are about +/- 10°. Their average is about 7°. 80-golfers are around 6°. 70 golfers probably about 5°. PGA Tour pros are around 3.5°. So 10% of those numbers are 0.7, 0.6, and 0.5°, with 0.35° for PGA Tour players. And yet, give each of them a full 1° (or  14% more accuracy for 100-golfers, 17% more accuracy for 80-golfers, 20% more accuracy for 70-golfers, and nearly 30% more accuracy for PGA Tour players… and they still come up short (or, at the PGA Tour level, only begin to break even). This means that the poll is biased, indeed, but in the opposite direction you think, @Marty2019. The poll could have said "would you choose 25% more accuracy or 10% more distance" and everyone (generalized to groups, not individuals) would STILL be better off choosing the distance. The only "trick" is that people value accuracy way, way too much, to the point where many are happy to take only a 10% improvement in accuracy while even a 25% improvement still can't account for the added value of driving the ball an extra 10% farther.
    • Pace Problem
      Do I think our GM and Pro would adopt what I am suggesting as a course policy? No.  
    • New shoes
      I am looking for a new pair pair of golf shoes.  Since I am a cheapskate trying to stay under $100. Any ideas I like to walk and need them to be waterproof. 
    • Pace Problem
      You (or your mangers) still don't seem to understand that catching another group and playing through them is slower for both groups (and for any groups following them) than if they are all simply required by policy to keep the pace.  The rules are just swell, but playing through should only be something that happens in cases with extenuating circumstances, not a regular habit.  The Rules of Golf were never intended to be used as an excuse for a chronic inability to keep pace with the course. When the course allows certain groups make a habit of playing so slowly that other groups overtake them and have to play through, then you have failed in establishing and maintaining an effective pace of play policy.  That policy is mired in a time warp from the era when courses were never full.  Those days no longer exist and different steps must be taken if a course is really serious about their pace of play.  It's apparent that your course is more concerned about the minority than they are about the majority.  I hope that doesn't eventually bite them in the behind.
    • Pace Problem
      Again, that's been our tactic for seven years, and has not generally worked.  There is not a suggestion made in this thread that we don't do or haven't tried to speed slow groups up.  Some do, but mostly slow groups stay slow. As a rule of thumb, marshaling 18 holes takes about an hour.  If you attempt to "teach" the first time around, and then discover that you're a bad teacher or the slow group is a bad student when you come back around, by the time you "enforce", you have lost half a round of golf and you have forced faster groups to play the slower group's pace. When I see a group going to 9 at 2 1/2 hours, I tend to say, 'Oh, shit." to myself, because I know we've lost the Pace and it's next to impossible to get it back until that group has left the course.  Sadly, because of staffing cutbacks, that's often the case.  When I say something to the GM or Pro like, "If you want a good pace, you have to be out there from the beginning," it is not received well. If, OTOH, our policy is Pace has Priority on the Course, let faster groups play through, and that is what they hear when they pay, and from the Starter, and that's what the sign in the carts' signholder says, they have no leg to stand on the first time the marshal comes by and sees groups piled up behind a slow group. Yeah, I know, it's different than what everyone's used to. But if you always do what you've always done, you always get what you've always got.
