    At least you have the cherished memory and experience.




    Absolutely agree and on top of that the day I was throwing the football around with Phil Mickelson was my birthday haha. Doesn't get better then that does it?







    On another note, new toy i'm playing with. Taylormade DLL 2.0 Counter Balance at 35" long. Color scheme is much better then the original and I love how stable it is. Problem i ran into with the 1.0 was the insert felt like cheap plastic. I'm wondering if I can get past that with this version because i really do like the look of it. Plus the black chrome shaft looks SWEET

    MNNikeguy- The 80TX feels really good and I like feeling the heavier weight of the club. Plus keep in mind i'm playing it at 44.25" which is not short but in todays world it' considered so. Look at the gapping in clubs in terms of length. 5 wood 42, then 3wood 43-43.5 (which needs to stop), then Driver up to 46" !!!! It's insane. Most people would do well by getting a 70g range shat and going to 44.5" or shorter.


    I agree 100% on the shafts being to long these days. I ordered my driver at 44", I hope it works out.

    I don't know about 70g worth of shat, but a 70g shaft sounds about right for that length.

    Very nice, i have heard lots of good things about the Veylix shafts, how did it work out for you? Must be nice to have access to that Flightscope. The closest place is 2 hours away for me and its just a Launch monitor, nothing like a flightscope. Hope the new bag werks good for you.

    THe Veylix lineup is really good and I love the Arcane and Rome series. Arcane is a little smoother with a higher flight but same low spin as the Rome. My arcane is still very much in the battle especially as it's 86g. I do have a Rome 888 but it's cut to short for me to try in the driver as it's a 3 wood shaft. The 888 in my 3 wood go to shaft. Also if you haven't tried it the Rome 988 hybrid shaft is without a doubt the best hybrid shaft on the planet. Nothing touches it for me. I have to grab another for my other hybrid over the off season.

    Yeah the contrast is really nice with it. So far on lag putts I really like it but for some odd reason anything inside 4ft is not working. Odd.

    80TX is in my driver @ 44.25 tipped 1" and is PHENOMINAL. It's a little firmer feeling then the 70TX and I find it takes left out of play a little more so that's a win for me. Arcane is the most anti left shaft in the testing. You can go as hard as you want and that ball is not curving left. All depends on what you want.

    Dont have a 3 wood right now. On the hunt waiting for the new 2015 stuff to hit. I might head down to the PGA show not sure yet but if I do I'll have a pretty good idea of what ill be trying. I already hit all the new Callaway stuff and was extremely impressed especially with the 815 alpha fwy wood.

    Awesome, Actually i just might do that with the hybrid and maybe a 3 wood as well. I just got 2 tour issue Adams Super Pro hybrids that are going to need shafts. Also I am going to be building and testing my new 3woods this spring to try and find my keeper.

    Got 3 Tour Issue nike heads, SQII Long Hosel, Dymo Shallow face (might Sell, might be little to hard to hit) and a VR Pro LE still in the plastic with the specs sticker. I have been stuck on the ATTAS shafts for a few seasons now, I love the unique feel they have and they are one of the only higher launching shafts that still dont balloon for me. I hit it fairly low with the fairways. I have AttasT2's in my Driver and backup driver as well. I got a great price on a brand new Attas3 that I was going to try in one of those Nike's. But Im thinking it may have to be put up against one of those Veylix if I could find one at a decent price. I find it to be a brutal painstaking process to find a proper 3wood.

    You as well as others have piqued my interest in the Veylix shafts. How does the Rome 988 Launch and Spin in the hybrids? Sorry if im thread jacking but you seem to know ur stuff with those shafts m8.

    Congrats on the career round!



    Bummer the 757 EvoTS didn't work out. I've been a little squirelly myself in the last couple months, but it seems to be pretty similar to my old Elements Chrome that I used most of the year. I switched drivers so it's hard to tell.



    You're in the Bmore area, right? With all the old, oak tree-ridden courses in this area I totally understand favoring accuracy. If your club is anything like Sparrows Point, you need to be able to hit the driver within a 5-10 yard window all the time.

    I agree I think it's really hard to find a great versatile 3 wood. I've been in limbo for the last few years and have tried everything from Callaway 3 deep, X2hot pro, taylormade SLDR, Mini Driver, ect.. and the list goes on and on and on. It sounds like you have some great heads there so you need to get testing yourself!

    yes in Bmore area and our course is very much like that but also lots of Pine Tree's. Traditional northeast golf course with bent grass everywhere and tree's tree's and more tree's. It's made me a better player that's for sure. As for the 757 Evo TS I really liked that shaft and I may regret selling it if I do but not decided yet. I have to say I have NOT given up on it just yet. I love the graphics in fact it's probably my favorite out of what I have. Although the Arcane changing colors in the sun is pretty sweet.

    gaming the 915d3 with the rogue 70tx right now at 45 but after hitting the DBD I am absolutely kicking myself because I am dying to order a 9 degree head with a 80TX



    my 70tx has the laser etching and it looks really good must admit



    44.25 80tx I guess I am going to get started

    I really like the 915D3 head, really an improvement over last year. As for the DBD get out there and pick one up it's such a good stick and with the 80TX it's a low spin machine.

    Threw my DBD / Rogue 80TX on the scale today. Honestly its a a sledge hammer of a club. I just hope I can do it justice and keep up with it. The ONLY thing i'm concerned about is what happens on an off day because I can tell you if I don't bring the heat this driver might beat me up and take my lunch money.

    Hey man! I live in Charles Town WV, so maybe we can get some guys to link up somewhere around Baltimore to play one time this summer. Would be a blast!
    Everything in my bag has imploded.

    New contender in the ring. After everything I've hear about this shaft I just had to grab one. Going to toy around with it and see what happens but right now it's 45" in the DBD. Weight on the XX is 70g's give or take 1-2g's. I'll play with length ect... when I get time but for now I'll just slap it in and get a first impression.

    FWIW, we've got a ton of folks around the DMV on here. We get together for planned and impromptu rounds all the time.

    I was fitted for a Fubuki J 50 stiff last spring, and have nothing but good things to say. It's fantastic. Hopefully you'll find that it stands up to the heavyweights.

    Quick update:



    So got on the LM real quick and got some numbrs with the Rogue 80TX and Fubuk J and spin is very close, i'm talking within 200rpms of one another. I was averaging around 1900 rpm with the Rogue/DBD setup and 2000 with Fubuki J XX / DBD. Launch with the Fubuki is slightly higher by 1-2* and the carry and totat distance averaged 12 yds FURTHER then the Rogue. Honestly it was surprising to say the least. Now the 80TX is not built for pure distance (obviously otherwise I wouldn't be using an 80g shaft) but it's still surprsing to see that large of a gap. But honestly LM"s oly mean so much especially indoors.



    So I snuck in a few holes the other day,, and by a few I mean 3 holes as the weather was 40* with some wind. So anywy I went to the 3rd hole and hit 5 balls a piece with both shafts then went out to inspect the results. Sure enough the best shots with the Fubuki were 12-15yds longer and in a tight grouping. Again I was impressed. Obviously need a lot more time to compare these two but so far I am curiously optimistic that the J is going to give the infamous Rogue 125 a run for it's money.



    To be continued after the PGA show where I will test some more goodies image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />
