I have the R7 CGB max 9.5 in the stiff shaft 45gram.While playing lately i noticed i get absolutely no run on the fairway after a drive,even on hard fairways.On a wet fairway i noticed plug marks 3 feet in front of my ball.I carry the ball a long way though.So anyway i went to golfmart today and asked for a new shaft,they put me on the launch monitor and after 4 swings
he was able to tell me i get no run on the fairway,unbelievable,he said shaft was to light for me e.t.c so he is fitting it with a heavier shaft,i think its a pro-force V2.He said it will make a big difference.First time i ever got fitted for a driver,i was always a bit skeptical about it.I forgot to ask what my hitting stats were though.I'm getting it spined also,don't know if it will make a difference.Just thought i would post this if you were thinking about getting fitted.I also said make it a half inch shorter.Can't wait to hit it.

I found the CGB max shaft super light as well. I've been taking it to the range and played one round one it. I get a lot of backspin on the ball. Too bad I can't reshaft it since it ain't mine.

I don't know whether it was me or the new shaft but the difference is
unbelievable,i was at the range and working hard on turning my shoulders and coiling and unleashing with my hips,the trajectory was exactly what i was always looking for,i am definitely carrying the ball a lot further,i mean a lot further.Getting fitted for a driver is the only way to go.
Playing in a tournament tomorrow and i will definitely have a chance at the
longest drive,can't wait to get out on the course.Sorry about raving a bit folks but I'm slightly elated

Very exciting. My 30$ used driver has an extremely light shaft also, I'm wondering if that's why I get the drives that start out straight, but seem to climb upward about 100 yards out. Is that a sign of backspin?

Do you still have the weights set up as 1 - 16 - 1?

I just put in 10 - 16 - 10, hopefully that might help with keeping the backspin down.

I have mine set to neutral,You got heavier weights?

My R7 425 had 2-10-10-2 weights in it so I just put them in the CGB to try it out since the stock shaft is so light.

I have a CGB Max driver High Trajectory, reg flex shaft. I was really happy when I got it, but now I see that the trajectory is a little to high for me as I get better. Can I compensate for that with more weighting to bring flatten out the shape and add some roll?

Let me know how that works out,sounds like a good idea.

Does anyone know where to get weights on the cheap for these? I mean, I just priced it new, and it is cheaper to get a second driver from TM preowned than it is to get the weights.

While we're at it, I'd also like to know if replacing the 1g with a 10g weight is still conforming with the rules.

Man, I ask a lot of questions.

The weights did not fix my backspin but its very easy to hit a draw. I have not sliced a drive with it so basically all my misses are hooks from closing the face at impact. I'm thinking of testing out 2-16-10 so it can be more toe weighted.

I saw a bunch of weights on eBay go for anywhere from $10-20 recently. I think that is your best bet.

I don't think its illegal to add weights on an adjustable driver as long as it is not during the round.

Bruce, what's your SS with the driver? I tried the Proforce V2 on a Nike SQ 5900 but hit it like crap, not sure if it was the shaft or the head though. Just afraid if I change the shaft I may be worse off. Right now I'm carrying only about 220 and 30-40 yards of roll.

    • Juli,    Our dominant hands perform millions of everyday task for us that are in our subconscious mind. We never give them a thought. However, the golf swing is NOT in our subconscious mind . It is a learned conscious task that is totally foreign and opposite to human genetics. If it was NATURAL NBA and NFL and other great PRO athletes would be leading the PGA tour .    Our shoulders ( upper arms ) are the most flexible joints in our body . This enables our dominant HANDS to bring food to our mouths so we could survive as humans and they will ALWAYS roll over, turn down unless we force them / teach them to perform otherwise . The DS only takes 2/10 seconds . Whatever key you choose to use must be  preprogrammed / prepared before you ever pull the shaft back . The human brain can only sort out and perform ONE ( 1 ) task in that short amount of time . So - what is that one thought to be ? Well - their is a direct connection between the brain and it’s dominant hand . The right in your case . It is responsible for dropping the entire lever system down back around behind our torso and to stay right palm upward during the entire DS . If we don’t we definitely know what is going to happen and you can see it on any range in the world . It is the turning of the torso ( inner circle ) that squares the face, not the hands ! Yes - I know this sounds radical and some will say so , but check out * Cortical Homunculus * and see where I am coming from.  thanks for your reply . Good luck
    • I get where you are going with this.  The only thing I can think of that would really constitute a "Mental Mistake" is there have been times where I'm forced to used a cart and it's cart path only. I assume I have the correct club and then by time I walk across to my ball (Not sure why I never hit it near the cart-path.) I realize I don't have the "right" club. So, 9 times out of 10 I use the club I have rather then hike back for another one.  Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't I always think "Damned, I'm an idiot."  Pretty much the rest of the time my mistakes come from this list. Hit it off the hosel. Hit it off the toe. Hit it off the heel. Hit it off the bottom. Hit it off the top of the club, or roof of the driver. Shanked it. Thinned it. Or some other unexpected weirdo swing fault that happens.  I would bet "mental" mistakes, on average, probably make up about 1 shot a round for me... maybe less. I played yesterday. Shot an 84.... 12 over par. I don't think any of those 12 were due to "mental" mistakes. I would say that all 12 shots came from "didn't hit it good enough" mistakes.
    • Overhand or underhand? I do think the connection most on this site have is we like talking golf. Most want to improve as well, but may not currently have the time available to put in to improve.
    • Distance is great and all that, but you have to keep it playable. If the driver is costing you 4 penalty strokes a round take some lessons... real lessons with it, not some quick fix crap.
    • What I have to do is focus on one shot at a time. Plan the hole from the flag back. That's the plan, but that's based upon hitting a good tee shot. If I don't put the tee shot where I need to, then it's a new hole. The tee shot is behind me. I have a different shot. I may have to hit a banana ball around a tree which I'll try if I'm hitting the ball well. If I'm not hitting the ball so well, I'll punch out. Best to let the game come to you to avoid putting up big numbers. This year will be interesting. I've dropped my LW, gone with a OL 56 wedge and added a 7W.
