  1. I haven't found an easy to hit 1H yet. Not saying one doesn't exist, I just haven't found it. I think Cleveland makes a 1H. I hit some older ones and the results weren't great...same with a Nickent. If my wood is misbehaving I take my medicine and take a shorter shot with my 17. I am with you though. If I ever find a reliable 1H I will be all over it.

    lol a 1 hybrid will never be easy to hit....

    No offence the resualts were not great because you were not hitting it that good, is what I would say. If you hit it well the resualts will always be atleast average. I hybrid is ALWAYS going to be shorter then a 3 wood, so just remember that. No idea of a hybrid stonger then 14.5* to answer your origional question.
  2. Hi,
    I oreded my MP68's with the KBS Tour shaft in them. I like the feel of them ALOT but the ball flight is a little higher then expected. I have some PS X100 shafts in my old irons, I think im going to get put in them to try out. But all very good shaft, KBS tour feels a little nicer then they X100, but the X100 has a lower ball flight.

    When I went for a fitting I hit them with a PX 7.0 in them, felt great, but numbers were a little better with the X100's and the KBS tour. I was not swinging it that great on the day of the fitting though witch might have had somthing to do with it.
  3. A serious question to the low handicappers here with regards to this topic.

    In all honestly, I don't think the driver tec can really go anywere... I had the 07 burner and it was a GREAT driver! It did not fit me proply but thats because I brought it stright of the racks. But I got fited for one of the new taylormade drivers and I would rather go back to my old burner that hit that!

    Only thing that tec seems to be doing great job on is golf balls, The new taylormade penta TP and the new callaway balls all seem to out proform the ProV's by along was because of all the new tec in them. But really I don;t think drivers, Irons, wedges and putters can really get that much better. 10 years time might be a different story but now, undating gear is just because, somthing "feels" better or "sounds better" or a new shaft has come out and it fit's me better ect.
  4. Every golf net I brought I put a hole right through it. I would make one yourself, they end up being much cheeper and much better quility.

    First net I brought, I put a hole in within 5min of using, took it back that replaced it, same thing happend, took it back they replaced it again, same thing happend and then they decided they would give me my money back. This has happend twice. Then I brought a really good net over the internet and put a hole in that one within a week.
    Now I made my own net and ive had it for 6 months and it;s still good!
  5. It's not the arrow, it's the indian. Tour pros replace theirs every 20 rounds or so if I'm not mistaken, but I'd be hard pressed to find a regular golfer that would need to replace them more than every few years.

    You really need to get your facts right before posting stuff like that.

    Most "touring" pros will replace wedges every 5-10 rounds and before every major. This may not have been the case back with the old grouve rules, but this is how it usually happens now. "It's not the arrow, it's the indian" this does not apply here. Wedges lose spin the more you use them. I have some old Cg12's I use for pactise that I regouve every now and then and when I play tornys I have my Vokeys. Just so I don't wear out my Vokeys really quickly since I play alot of golf. Now on topic.... The new taylormade wedges are really good! Really nice feel and nice clib head shape, this new face tec is really good stuff, the new faces arent really that expensive either. these wedges may just make it into my bag in the near future.
  6. So the recommend the Cleveland Hi bore over all the clubs you mentioned? Why is that? It seems to be the cheapest out of the bunch, but I guess thats not always a bad thing... Which one would you suggest, the XL, XLS, monster XL, or monster XLS?

    Sorry should have made that a little bit simpler :P

    Any of the Hibore range is really good for biginners, all very forgiving drivers and there is alot of room for people to "grow" into them. Ive only hit the Origional Hibore and the XLS Monstar (I think that is there newest one) Not much difference, you will just be paying a little bit more for the updated tecnolagy (how the heak do you spell that?? :P) The XLS had a much better sound and little bit better look, and acording to Cleveland it's there most forgiving driver out of the whole Hibore line. One bad thing about the Hibore drivers is there LOUD inpact sounds, but if you were going to buy a cobra driver, you would be getting the same thing :P Another driver as I said in my last post is the Nike Sumo 5900 witch is also really good for beginners, the new model of that is the Nike Dymo. But again very much like the Hibore, very very forgiving and because of the odd shape of these clubs heads these are also very loud. Im just saying what I think is best, if you can go to any demo day that brands hold at golf clubs and try what you like out and see how they fly on the range is going to give you your best idea of what you ect. Honestly what ever you buy now, you will most likly want to change it in a few years time because you will have a better more consistant swing and then you can get fitted in a golf shop for somthing that really will suit your golf swing. Anymore questions, let me know :) (If my spelling is really bad, im sorry it;s; 1:30am and im tired haha)
  7. I would say don't buy a driver with offset, that is just masking a bad swing fault that should be fixed over time and when you fix it, you will have trouble with hooking the ball.

    If your looking for a forgiving driver I would say the Nike sumo 5900 it's a square head driver very forgiving!
    I honestly never really liked cobra gear, but everyone had a different opinon.

    If you have a low ball flight a 13* driver would be goof for you, but if you have a mid to high ball flight, I would just buy a 10.5. If you get a 13* I would say your going to ballon alot of shots. But only if you already have a high ball flight.

    Any of the modern drivers today will be quite forgiving. As already said square head drivers will usually have a higher MOI, so they are more forgiving.
    Another few good foriving drivers and the taylormade 07 Burner and the 09 Burner, Ping rapture, Ping G5, G10, G15, Nike Dymo square head, Cleveland Highbore (I highly recomend it)

    All thoese drivers there are extremly forgiving! As I said, if you already have a mid or high ball flight, get a 10.5 driver. Because you are going to want room to grow with it and your swing is going to get better. If you go out and buy a 13* Offset driver you will outgrow it in 6 months time when your swing gets alot better.

    Good luck! New drivers are always fun :)
  8. eh, sorry but im gonna disagree here with CrazyXGolfer. I would never expect a swing like that to be hitting blades. but if it works for you, then hats off to you.

    My swing does look anything like that, but I still have alot to fix in my swing. If your a consistant ball striker and you like the way somthing looks the is no reason not to pkay blades.

    I can post a vid of my golf swing if you would, just might have to give me a few hours, I have no vids of this computer.
  9. just out of curiosity, does anybody know how different the shafts are - such as WB from "designed for" shafts to the actual Diamana WB shafts?

    Usually different specs in the shaft, they are still good quility shafts, just not as good as the real thing 99% of the time. But if the stock shafts fits you why change it?

    In my Old 07 Burner TP I played the stock shaft and in my Sumo 5000 I played the stock shaft because they both worked for me.
  10. OMG Im going to love this thread :)

    I don't think the golf ball should be rolled back, tecnolagy is always going to get better in all sports and they need to deal with this, but letting us have some of the tec and then limeting how much we can actully use. If they roll back golf balls, it's going to make course's like my home golf club almost unplayable. It's a 6900 meter (7600 yeards I think) I mean this is going to be the other side of the story, people have spent big money trying to make these golf courses somthing awesome, and now it would have to be re designed.
    The advancement in balls and equipment has paid off more for the better players as they can maximize on the improvements at a much higher percentage than can the average player. For instance if a modern ball gives a pro a 25 yard distance advantage then it may only translate to 10 for a mid-cap. I think since the genie is out of the bottle, the USGA should hold the line. Old courses are only obsolete for tour caliber players, for the average player they hold up just fine. How many amateurs really want to experience 7400 yards? I would also like to see the pro tournaments grow some rough every now and then and put more of a premium on hitting the fairways. The modern pound it game could be modified with course set-up that could bring shot-making back into the mix.

    25yards? Not sure were you got that info but I read a artical were Geoff Ogilvy went and played 18 holes with the old gear and balls. Like 70's gear ect. He said he hit the same clubs every time, he said the ball did not carry as far but had alot more roll.
