    I think both shape and size. I tend to like a slightly larger profile in my fairway wood plus it looked like it had a lot of face bulge to me. Either way if I don't like what i look down at it's a no go regardless of how it performs. I have to feel confident when I put it behind the ball.

    agree completely...LOVE the Alpha 815's...like the XR standard and I am sure the XR Pro will look better to me. But the profile on the 815's is TOTALLY my kind of fairway...each has their merits....

    I was on the same never-ending journey, until I was talked into picking up the SLDR Mini. I'm smitten. Have you tested one before?


    I have tried it and liked it off the tee but the deck just didnt work for me. Not enough spin. But I do know of something coming out soon that could work for me.


    Right on, different strokes for different folks. I was just pleasantly surprised by its performance, so I thought I would throw it out there. What is on your radar? You have me intrigued...

    What issue are u having with Cobra's custom department?




    Things like, we don't know if we can build a 3wood at d4 and 42.75"...really? Cuz that is so far from normal? I don't think they even break the plastic off the head to change the sole weight. Lazy incompetence....

    How is it going with the Fubuki J? I've ordered myself one, but the 50g version - couldn't resist for this price...

    @ Dscvr - I agree and the 815 Alpha performs really well for me but I tend to like the size of the standard XR. I'm sure i'm in the minority especially among other players that are scratch level or better.



    Qmany - Something is coming and there's a reason why i'm trying 3 woods at 15-16.5* of loft. Leaves a little room between my driver and 3/4 wood image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    @Duece - That stinks and does not speak very highly of a "custom" department. I do most of my own builds so I don't work with many custom departments at OEM's. This is probably why lol



    @peakpostiion - Love the 60XX as I found the 70X to be a little soft for me. I think this shaft plays soft to flex because there is no way I should be playing an XX shaft but it fits well. The Rogue I have is TX but that's different from a true XX.

    Sounds great! I'm a bit scared because of the weight...never played such a weight shaft before - but as I said, I couldn't resist.

    Thanks for stating that it plays softer to flex. The shaft is long enough so I have room for tipping it an inch, to play it at my desired 44.5.

    I will let you know how it works when I have it build - when you are intrested image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

    I am considering to buy such a "uni-fit" sytem to use it in the SLDR and in the G30LS but not sure about that. As I'm a big fan of the G30LS I guess I will try it with it.



    The Fubuki will have some good competitors, Chrome, Talamonti LS70, Rogue, Speeder, Matrix Proto (White Tie) and the Kyioshi Tour Limited. You can see, a busy spring time image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

    At it again except this time it's for the 3 wood spot. I haven't had a 3 wood in 4-5 months so it's time to fill the slot. Two have really caught my eye and they are the Titleist 915F 15* and Cobra Fly Z+ 3/4 wood. Titleist has the advatage as it was custom built for me while the Fly Z+ was a random grab from a shop and is all stock (for now lol).



    Club specs as of now:



    Titleist 915 F 15* (B1) Rogue 80X (95msi) D 3.5 playing @ 42.75"

    Cobra Fly Z+ 14.5* Stock VLCT 75g Stiff D3 @ 43"



    So I practiced today then played 9. On every hole I hit 2 balls with each driver off each tee (so 4 from each tee) and also from the fairway. I'm looking for my grail because honestly i'm tired of trying 3 woods. It's been 4-5 years of searching and i'm tired. So anyway Titleist won hands down today. It was about 10yds longer but again remember the Cobra had a stiff flex and it was spinning more which i could easly see in the flight. Dispersion was also much better with the 915 an again the stiff was all over the place. So im going to drop a shaft in the Cobra and do a real apples to apples comparison but was anxious to get them out today before i had time to swap shafts. Both feel diferent but really good. Have to say the Titleist fairways feel a MILLION times better then the drivers.



    So as for now

    Distance : 915 was about 10yds longer off the tee

    Feel: Both are great it's a tie

    Dispersion : 915 easily

    Elevation off the deck: Cobra was another 2-3* higher

    Turf Interaction- Tie



    So i'm hoping to reshat and play saturday. Stay tuned

    Not using the Fly Z+ driver right now actually sold it to a member on here. I tried a few shafts and couldn't get it to cooperate but have no doubt if I played with it enough I could figure out a great combination. I also tried the G30LS my buddy got and REALLY liked it. I think it might be the big contender for the DBD. Time will tell and I have one on the way image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

    Why did you pick the F over FD? You were into the FD when you first hit them right? To me the FD is better looking and sounds better but the F is just too easy to hit and is low enough spin.

    After some more testing with shafts I was able to get spin down a bit while sill keeping the launch angle where I wanted so the F was an easy choice being a more forgiving club. I like the shape and look of both but i'm really trying to make my bag as easy and forgiving as possible while still maintaining optimal launch conditions.

    Quick update but the winner for my 3 wood spot was the Fly Z+. It's so easy to hit off the deck for me yet off the tee it's low enough in spin to fly on a nice mid/high flat flight. The Titleist was a little longer overall but for me that's not the end all be all for my 3 wood. I want length but not at the expense of playability off the deck.



    I want to try the XR Pro now that its out as i love the headshape and matte black finish.



    Also trying the Kuro Kage XT 70 right now. Have a few rounds in with it and so far i'm really impressed. Hitting it in the G30LS first but probably going to toss it in my DBD. Low spin , mid flight is what i'm seeing and super stable.

    Hit the 14* and 16* XR Pro today at PGA SS and was really impressed. Stock shaft in 6.5 wasn't bad but too light for me. 16* was easier to launch and almost as long, but more consistent and low spin.



    Interested to hear how it fairs for you against the Fly Z+.

    It's hard to nail down it feels pretty unique. I know your playing the Rogue so i'll try to explain it like this. With the Rogue i feel like the bottom 1/3 of the shaft kicks through impact while the rest of the shaft is pretty stable/firm. The KK XT is an overall more unified smoother feel. You can go at the ball as hard as you want and you aren't going to overpower it or have the ball make a hard left turn. So far it's getting a LOT of playing time and hitting a lot of fairways.

    What shaft did you go with in the Fly Z? Looks really good. How's the forgiveness in the smaller head?

    There are different versions of the KK with the latest being the XT which is the retail offering of last years tour only XTS . That's the shaft that guys like Rory, Scott, and Day are playing. Although not sure if Scott is playing it now or not but Rory and Day are. (Rory is playing it but it looks like contractually he has to play a painted version to look like Nike's stock option)

    Veylix Rome 888 tipped 1" and I'm finding the level of forgiveness to be perfectly fine. I don't know how much the channel around the face helps but so far I've had no issues with misses.

    Does the Fly-Z fairway have that typical Cobra muted sound, kind of like a thud? FWIW, I don't think that's a bad thing at all, I prefer it, but some equate that to feeling more dead.

    It's has a small ping to it not super muted. The Titleist was a more muted sound compaed to the FZ+

    Gotcha. I just thought the xt on mrc website looked all silver? Yours looks like the black xts all guys were hitting. Was just wondering if the old 2 model deal carried over or if there is only one now. Sounds like only one from you. Thanks J13 sweet shaft. I almost scored an xts proto a couple weeks back for a steal but got outbid last second!!

    Update:



    The Kuro Kage XT is really winning me over but in my DBD not Cobra. Something about that combo is working really really well. The KK after some more practice and another round feels really good and dispersion is exceptional. The butt section is firm then is gradually feels like the shaft gets softer as it goes to the tip of the shaft. Rogue feels very much like it's firm then like 10" from the tip it quickly gets soft. Not saying one is better then another but that's the "feel" to me. I'll grab a pic when i get home but so far the KK XT is giving my Rogue a real run for its money. I'm also hearing some noise about 1 more shaft that I just might have to try lol We'll see I want some more info first.
