Re: Highest MOI Driver

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

Re: Highest MOI Driver

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.

Re: Highest MOI Driver

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.
