Stealth driver. Probably won't be seeing it for a good while yet by the sounds of it.

Cool. 
I'm curious. Were you able to hit it first? If so, where? Did you get fitted?

Id planned on getting a fitting.

However when I looked through the shafts/specs there was only one that suited me from previous history. I think this setup will give me a lot of confidence.

I felt that even if i did get a fitting with all the other shafts, I wasn't prepared to pay extra for an upgraded shaft anyway. Given how expensive this driver is already.

There was also a couple of other little reasons I ordered without a fitting. Everything weighed up and it was a no brainer really. That was a month ago, and I don't have buyers regret yet, so that's a positive thing 😅

Cool, again.

BTW - Can I ask which shaft you chose? 

Every year all the new drivers come out and they are all slick like elephant snot. If I was infinitely wealthy I'd buy two or three every year.

The Ventus Red mate.

Yeah very expensive these days. Luckily I am very picky, otherwise I'd be broke.

    • I recall after my session (last one of the day) you asking to hit a few drivers and the guy gave some lame (to me) excuse for not letting you do that.  Oh well.  And I've always found you to be completely truthful and forthcoming in fittings and in giving tips.
    • @Double Mocha Man didn’t say it but I was there helping the fitters. Not in the actual fitting of people but as the pro and “to make the sale.” I was helping a couple people. Some ladies were swinging way too hard and couldn’t make contact to give good readings on trackman. I saw @Double Mocha Manman hit the driver and sure he hit them well but definitely not 40yds better. The fitter also said several things on flight data that was clear he was milking it a bit. I didn’t know they said it was 40yds. I would’ve believed 5-10yds at most. Also we only use flight limited balls at this range so a couple data points were not accurate.  I’m always as honest as I can be. I’ll “make the sale” if I think it’s a good idea or if the person really wants it. I won’t lie about ball flight data or what a club can do. So that environment was hard for me.  It was also weird. I used their driver a couple times towards the end because I hadn’t hit it before. The moment I asked to test it on their trackman, both their monitors both died… maybe they wanted to just pack up and go but it still took them over an hour to leave. Makes me wonder what truly was going on. 
    • Day 209, May 28, 2022 Hit balls for 10 or 12 minutes waiting for a lesson to arrive. Shorter, wider, still just as far.
    • Good one.  Thanks.  But the problem is the guy kept pushing his drivers when (if he looked) he could see I was hitting my own driver just as far or farther.  When I went into the session I told him I was looking for more distance and at least the same accuracy.
    • It's entirely plausible that the fitter is unscrupulous, but it seems more likely to me that there was a misread on one of your baseline shots. The good news is, it sounds like you have a setup that works well for you. Maybe try yelling "boom!" When you hit your current driver to make up some of the yardage.
