I think the machine was goofed somehow. I don't know how you'd get the carry yardages you were getting with 105/5000.
you know what? I asked one of the pros about that too last week. He said trust all the data but spin, something was off (or terribly worn) and he didn't trust spin on the machine. Said they were getting more stickers, the balls didn't have the little 'silver dots' I'm used to seeing - are those for spin measurements (I'm not a regular TM user I like it when i can)..... I read that comment as the spin was a little off, not a LOT off. I must have inferred the wrong thing.
AoA is about +5 typically (club is a 10.5 degree face - don't know the launch angle)
head is a Nike VRpro ii Limited (not adjustable) - shaft is a stiff Mitsubishi Diamana - I really like these a LOT over the ProjX shafts normally found on that gen of Nikes
contact....I'm only looking at the stats when contact is clean. fairly centered on the face or just above center based on marks anyway (my normal miss is the top of face - haven't done that for quite awhile lately though)
the Trackman shapes and distances are matching what I'm seeing on the course - both woods, hybrids and irons....Really have work hard to keep the path inside out.....
thanks guys - I thought that I was showing too much carry for the spin I was reading
so is 2000-3000 a good number? Once the machines (or balls) are reset, I'll be able to get a true assessment of spin I guess.
I plan to get at least an hour of TM a month over the season - it's part of my membership and I like it a lot
