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.

    • I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I usually play Wednesdays and Fridays also the odd Monday  . If I don’t play Monday I will often go and have some practice, either that or a Tuesday. I often take the Driver , 3 wood 4,5 & 6 irons out of the bag and go with the rest. Learn to hit shots with the clubs I have ,stop around the green have a few chips ,pitches putts etc.  Also I read Dave Pelz’s short game book a while back. I’ve adapted my bike and can fit a wedge on it. At night I go down to the corner of a mown area by sports fields. I take turns of which wedge, and do pitch & 2 different ‘finesse’ swings. Over summer I’ve gotten a pretty fair idea of how far I hit the various swings & it’s definitely paid dividends . I regularly get up & down from under 100 yards, especially under 40/50.  Before I just sort of guessed which club, and the other benefit is swinging slower I find I’m much more accurate with my direction. 
    • One of the things I have noticed about really good Youtube channels - let alone excellent films, is exactly this. There might be a time lapse that would take hours to video, but it is on screen for perhaps less than two seconds. But it gives the presentation quality. Look at films with incredible special effects and costumes/props - Lord of the Rings, for example. Years and years go into making things like a belt that a camera may never even focus on, or be a hundred metres a way, but the film wouldn't work without them.The total is greater than the sum of its parts. The flip side of this, of course, is that a prop that takes 5 minutes to make and looks like crap it is noticeably crap even if it is on screen for half a second, like a poorly photoshopped "family portrait" or newspaper "front page" with a stuck on headline on paper not even close to the colour of the newspaper. The devil is in the detail and tiny things connect to make the big picture. A bit like golf, perhaps.
    • I’d rather have it shut than open. I can find a swing where it’s more shut than that. Open doesn’t work for me, the extended lead wrist gets me steep and I shallow late, leave the face too open (or shank) going to A7. The last 3 instructors I’ve worked with have told me to bow the lead wrist at 4 more and I’ll get away from that and get steep.  When I try and do that my arms come off my chest and path goes too out to in. When I feel like I drop the club behind me at A4 my arms will go out towards the ball pretty good I think, like in the second swing, at A5 my hands bisect the torso. 
    • My 2 cents is that if you have to add more than 1.5" or so, you are really in need of new shafts. As far as "orange dot length" is concerned, I always thought that the dot color only denoted lie angle, not length. For example, if I were to order Pings, I would want blue dot (1" upright) at standard length (I fall on the short end of standard range). I just came across an old post on here that give a good Ping chart. Don't comment in there unless it is really pertinent though, as it is quite an old thread.
