The carry numbers I have in my head for each club during a given round are:

 

Driver: 285

3W: 260 

3hy: 240

4i: 225

5i:210

6i:195

7i:180

8i:165

9i:150

pw:135

52:120

56:105

From my club fitting about two weeks ago, just in case :)

Impressive scores for your handicap.  Congrats and keep at it. :)

What is the course rating on your track? I only ask because these are typically my scores. A few more on the 86 side of things.

At first I was like: "285 with 92mph clubhead speed???"....then I saw the club. ;)

 

What did you end up with?

I was fitted for the KBS Tour X Soft Stepped once (whatever that means).  It was a toss up between that and the C-Taper KBS X.

Didn't pull the trigger yet, was like 550 bucks to do all the shafts, would rather get a new set.  So just had loft and lie tweaked for now.

 

My driver shaft is a Kai'li 63X, but 3w and 3hy are both stiffs... current iron is Dynamic gold S300, but thats a different problem for a different thread haha.

Thought you'd all find this link interesting, I don't seem to follow it though as I'm a 22hcp and my drives carry between 240-260yds depending on the day... Just not always in the direction I intended 😊.

Didn't you also say that report was from a Trackman or Flightscope, right?

post #1448 of 1883
My local driving range has this system 'Protracer' which shows the flight of the ball and the carry distance. I've been taking down numbers for a while to get yardage averages, check it out...

Driver -262
3w -239
4h -221
5h -215
5 -207
6 -198
7 -187
8 -178
9 - 166
Pw F -155
Pw 9 -130
Pw 7.30 - 96
Sw F - 129
Sw 9 - 110
Sw 7.30 - 80
Lw F - 110
Lw 9 - 94
Lw 7.30 - 66

For wedges I take distances for full swing as well as 9 o'clock and 7.30 swings per pelzes suggestion.

I've def gained some distance recently (by holding the club more in my fingers) but surely I am not hitting my 9 iron 166 yards?? The odd thing is that at the driver end of the scale, the distances look correct, just the middle and short irons. I've not been out on the course too much recently. Thoughts appreciated.

Do your LW to 9i roll out a lot or just land and sit?

sorry for the delayed reply! yes, it was a flightscope, the sensors/lights what have you in the floor under the mat, 6 before the ball 6 after.

That's not a Flightscope. Flightscope and Trackman are doppler radar based systems. They measure a fair amount of things - largely the ball (launch angle, direction, spin, speed, spin axis tilt, etc.).

Sensors in the floor are not going to produce terribly accurate measurements for those types of things.

Ah, well maybe that was for a different set up? there was a white box that looked like the trackman behind me, guess i assumed the measurements were coming from the floor because thats where i was hitting from.. the printed report i got with each iron shaft i tried was 100% a flightscope report though

This...

 

post #1454 of 1883

Yes, those are FlightScope numbers.

 

FWIW, your spin numbers are less than half what they should be (could be because you were using crappy balls or something), and your height should be about 90 feet or so (about 30 yards), not 70.

post #1455 of 1883

Yea the club fitter mentioned that too.  He said the spin is usually lower than expected on that system for whatever reason.  But the height was strange to me, the whole reason I went for the fitting was because I felt I was hitting the ball too high.  I had played in Florida the week before and was hitting it really, really high, so I don't have an answer for why it was so low here.  Needless to say I saved the money and kept my own shafts, just tweaked the loft and lie.  First time I've ever been fitted, hoping it won't be hard to get used to the changes.

The range is astro-turf so all shots roll out, in reality those shots for me tend to stick or roll back about 1 foot.

 

I played a round yesterday and i measured some shots, results below. These are the distances I'm more used to, I think the ProTracer thing at my range is totally F'd.

 

5i - 185

8i - 142

Sw F - 103

 

So annoying, why can't they get these things right, whats the point in having a system with multiple pro endorsements and have it be wildly inaccurate.

Most people wouldn't admit that their real world numbers are lower. :)

I try to use systems like that only for comparison purposes. People who are not realistic about their distances only hurt their score by using the wrong club.

Those are good distances, and the numbers make more sense.

I don't trust these machines, and I'm trying to build one that's accurate without a need for calibrations. Not so easy.
