Still swinging my Titleist 915, time for an upgrade.

I am waiting for the taylormade to come out of February and I have a fitting scheduled just after to compar the new M5, TS, and Flash.

Excited, hope to gain 10 yards since my driver is out of date, but we shall see.

I’m excited for when the new drivers are discounted. Then I’ll get fit

I agree. It looks pretty awesome. 

It's the first driver in a long time I've been really excited about pre-release.

Yeah, that's what I was waiting for when Callaway introduced the Epic. Except there weren't any year old drivers to be discounted! Every golf shop in the area sold out of them. That left the "used" market, and there weren't a whole lot of them there either!

Why does the Ping G410 say "plus" on the bottom?  It's just the standard head I believe.

Since I've been trying the latest drivers over the last couple weeks indoors, Cobra, Titleist and Taylormade.   Still throwing the G400 max into the mix.  The Cobra has been on top by a large margin.

The Callaway Flash pair hasn't showed up as of last week.   As soon as I see it I'll put it up against the Cobra.  I want to go into the spring with 2 or 3 drivers to demo at our big 3 day outdoor demo and see who comes out on top.

Cobra King F9?

I'm looking forward to seeing this one in person.  The others (Callaway, Taylormade, Ping), I feel like i have seen previous iterations and hit them, but haven't taken a look at Cobra in a long time. But it seems like there are a whole lot of good options and competition for drivers.

The Cobra F9, mainly because I've always liked their drivers/woods. I don't think any of the new drivers are going to be ground breaking enough compared to my M2 to spend that kind of money.

Cobra is less money, great shaft selection and Arrcos...which is a cool feature to play around with.

im hearing people say the Epic Flash sub zero is really no better than the original Epic sub zero.  Interesting but I want to hit the Flash Subzero myself and see.

I've heard the opposite.

I bought a Rogue sub zero late last year based off fitting results. BY FAR my favorite driver I have ever owned.

Hope to hit it tomorrow afternoon.  I like the sliding weight on the flash subzero...we'll see how it fares vs. The Cobra and I'll probably grab a rogue sz and if they have one an epic sz.

With the Epic Flash, I've heard there has been some small improvement on ball speed. I am curious on the off-center strikes.

Golf Galaxy in Reading had it, not sure about Burlington.

    • My golf was an evolution the past 3 years but today I feel like I made a revolution. I finally managed to change my transition from shallow to steep to steep to shallow.  What lead the change was the backswing that I was working on last winter with my friend (the future pro 🙂 ) and the takeaway that we changed last month - I used to go to a cupped immediately and now I keep a bowed wrist throughout the backswing (or I at least try to).    And for the past week I was thinking about how to lead the downswing more with my hips to get them being open on impact, making room and thereby preventing the early extension. While I still didn’t change that part of the swing the thought helped me get to a change where I go to the top of the swing with my hands and then they start “backward” while I start the downswing with my lower body.    The result is that my ball flight immediately changed from a fade/slice pattern to a constant draw/hook. I feel like this will really help with my scoring as well as I will be able to better game plan      @iacas
    • That may be true, but the average amateur is unlikely to be better than 45% from a 140 yards.  And the pro can probably hit the same club or at worst one iron longer from the 200 yards in.  Most amateurs are hitting like an 8 iron or so from 140 and the pro can probably manage with a 7 iron from 200.  The pro is definitely better with a 7 iron than an amateur with an 8 iron. The reason the pro is better from 140 than 200 is probably because they are hitting a PW rather than say a 7 iron
    • You see this in other sports.   Anybody can coach great talent but it takes a good coach to get the best out of each and every player.
    • I may be a bit unfair to these coaches so I’ll admit that up front. But what I tend to believe is that many of these coaches that ‘got their name in the lights’ really lucked into it for the most part. They’ve taught hundreds of people before and nobody knew who they were. Now that definitely doesn’t define their level of quality. Not at all. But when a coach happens to score a player who is super talented and has the ‘it’ factor I can’t help believe that player was going to make waves regardless of his coach. Hank Haney got the majority of his notoriety from coaching Tiger. So did Sean Foley as did McCormick from Spieth. From the years of being on this thread I firmly believe Erik is every bit as good and better (Hank Haney) than these guys. I will agree that McCormick is a good coach as I’ve been told this by respectable people who are in the know. I just don’t think he’s anything so special that Spieth needs to remain with him.  At least not now. He needs renovation, not tweaking. I’d never heard of him before Spieth came to the stage and now he’s on commercials and pumps out dvd’s as an all time best instructor.  I think the talent of these golfers played a much bigger role in their success than the coaching they received from these guys. Just my opinion.
