Dead face on a driver??

8 posts in this topic

I bought a 9.5 razr fit from ebay and it just doesn't perform. I had a 10.5 that I was fitted for and bought new but I  cracked it with one too many crown hits, so I replaced it with a used 11.5. The 10.5 is hands down the longer club for my swing but the 11.5 is close, similar feel and with in 10 yards or so of my 10.5 razr. So, clubs being relatively cheap on ebay I thought I'd try a 9.5. The thing seams dead, I lose 20 yards. I can hit beautiful high trajectory shots that just go nowhere. 9.5 or adjusted to 10.5, makes no difference. dead club, feels dead too, you can just tell that the ball is slow off the face.

Beware ebay clubs. Lesson learned.

It could be the difference in the shaft.

Without that info, it's hard to say.

Yeah, could be the wrong shaft for you or possibly a counterfeit club.

In 2009 I started playing the Callaway HyperX Tour driver with an R-flex shaft. Soon afterward, I got a chance to hit the Diablo Octane driver, which was supposed to be the Next Big Thing.

I tried hitting Octanes two different times, but it always felt like hitting a plastic wiffle ball bat. Yet, other people loved it. Maybe Razr just doesn't Fit you.

You didn't mention what shaft it has. If it has low torque, it might not feel too lively for you. Or, , it might be a fake?

I have a  Fuji EXS 6.1 that I can interchange between the heads and I've tried every combination. Maybe a counter fit. but a good one, I can't find any difference.

I know what you mean, Everybody likes the Xhot driver. I can't hit that thing at all. Like my razr, seams to be a good club for me. I demo stuff all the time and I like what I have, just wish I had not cracked my 10.5.

Have you tried contacting the seller of the club on eBay or even check with callaway and the serial number?

    • Yikes!  The way things are starting for the DNC, it doesn't appear they'll get a bump from it.  I guess Nate Silver has factored that into his analysis.  
    • I am specifically speaking to the direct answers he was shown given in that interview at the RNC. I have no comments on any other comments he made.  Just to show you the misconception on crime rates versus perception over the past 13 years. It's kinda odd that the perceived level of crime was pretty much on par with how much crime there was. Then in 2001 it spiked up and has grown and leveled off at 65% What changed in 2001? In 2000, the 24 hour new cycle really hit it's full speed with the 2000 election. Then you add in social media in the coming years. People assume there are more violent crimes than before because they are getting more news time. Then they are repeated over and over again.  Is this the article you are talking about? The one Trump quoted the 17% influx in the 50 biggest cities?  https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/2015-homicides/ Did you read the articles conclusion at all?  1. Your idea that cops have become passive is incorrect
      2. You fail to consider the Heroin epidemic that is hitting this country. A large issue that has not been covered by the media. Hey, guns are sexy, drugs are not. 
      3. There hasn't been a way to quantify how impact Ferguson was on the increase in homicides.
      4. Even experts do not realize what caused the massive downturn from the 1991 peak and It's been 25 years. 

      Heck the Director of the FBI claims they need to find out what is going on. You are going to believe Trump and Newt are correct in blaming this president on it? Come on man. The complexity of this issue is stumping even those who spend their careers studying it. People who spend years looking at the data, trying to find a causation, have still yet to find one.  Here is Trumps rating on that statement of the 17% increase,  Yea, Trump and the GOP are taking one data point and assuming it's Armageddon. Of course Newt doesn't care about causation, he cares about what people feel. 
    • I'd have to see the the actual 20 yard approach, but a putter is a likely option.   Failing that, it's a bunker type explosion...
    • http://www.gamegolf.com/player/cleverpiggy/round/1060067 My first game golf round that worked.  Sort of.  I tagged about 80% of my shots and did some editing.  It was difficult to remember if I ever found myself in trouble and trying to figure out how to play it.  I was amazed that it accurately captured the direction and yardage on some of the shots I forgot to tag.  It actually got some of the clubs wrong when it did that, so I wonder what kind method it uses.  It was a very slow day and we chipped around the tee boxes while we were waiting and it didn't count any of those shots.  Very interesting. Just a small muni near where I stay in L.A.  Not a bad round.  Several thin and toey shots that didn't hurt me much.  It was just a fun round with my girlfriend but I have to remember how bad it is to flare a left driver on 18.  You need a super high shot over the bunker to hold the green and it will bounce OB if you go just a bit to far.  I screwed that shot up twice then took two to get out of the footprint filled bunker.  Surrender, I'm finally convinced to play an iron way right.
