    I loved the sound as well. What a lot of people are going to find crazy is that the Low Spin Model is more forgiving than the Regular Model.

    So let me get this straight.



    Qmany, you've been playing for only 6 years and you went out on Torrey South first time and shot 70 with clubs you've never played with outside of the fitting? ****.




    I had expertly fit clubs, a great caddie, adrenaline, and a lot of aiming fluid. It was the perfect recipe.



    The scary thing is, it could have been really low! Birdie putts missed:
    • 15 feet on 1
    • 15 feet on 2
    • 10 feet on 5
    • 3-putt par on 6
    • 15 feet on 7
    • 15 feet on 10
    • 25 feet on 11
    • 6 feet for Par on 12
    • 10 feet on 13
    • 25 feet on 14
    • 3-putt par on 18

    And you're certain that was the best fit putter?! lol

    I bet those were all near misses! That's crazy good!

    After we decided on the right shaft I was getting 4-8 yards more carry and the same gain in total distance. This doesn't sound like much as there were others who had much more impressive gains. But as Gerritt said, my gamer was already a really good fit for me, and to get an extra 4-8 yards of carry was impressive.


    Which shaft did you end up with?




    Diamana Blueboard 60X, but here's the kicker.......



    That night at dinner I was talking with Nate about our fitting and the subsequent builds by the tour department. He informed me that they didn't want to put a plain-old BB in my new driver because they found a Diamana B-Series Japan Only 60X in their shaft collection and installed it instead of the standard BB.



    What a treat! Its an awesome looking shaft!

    Great job on the write up, everyone so far. Q, 70 is a **** of a round at a course you've never played with clubs you've never touched. Hopefully '17 has some good things in store for you! I'm honestly kinda pissed at you though knowing you only picked up golf 6 years ago. You were that kid growing up who was just naturally good at everything, weren't you? WEREN'T YOU?



    Doc420 wrote:


    great read. So you have only been playing 6 years? That's very impressive to get to the level of player you appear to be. Did you play when you were young and pick it back 6 years ago or start from scratch? Did you come from a different sport that made it easier to get good quicker.




    I think it is just a little more than six years now, judging by when I joined this site. While I was in law school (2009-12), one of my good friends was an undergraduate on the golf team. He missed the team bus for an out-of-town event and his coached "punished" him by requiring him to play 36 holes while they were gone. He called me up, said he had a 30-pack of beer, and invited me to play. I have been hooked ever since! I joined here to research what irons I should buy after that. My parents might take me to the driving range or putt-putt when I was a kid, but I didn't play in high school or even have my own set of clubs.



    I played soccer/basketball in HS and then basketball in college. I was never the most athletic, so I got by on work ethic. I was a "gym rat." And that has translated well into golf; I've been a range rat ever since I started. I love practicing. During the summer, I'll practice or play 9-holes 6 days per week. If it is over freezing and not too windy, I'll hit balls during the Kansas winters.



    As I got a little better, I started getting the itch to play competitively. I practiced hard, took a leap of faith, signed up for the 2013 Missouri Amateur, and made it through qualifying! I've played in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 Kansas Amateur, and other state amateur events, since then.
    Now this story I can relate to. I played baseball in college and didn't really pick up golf until the end of my senior year. I'm in Louisiana so winters aren't so harsh; I'm always practicing now.



    This thread has been fantastic. Thanks to all of you for sharing. mackepa, I'm also a Disney nut... We own vacation club points at a couple of the resorts. Played The Palm for the first time last month. I won't be taking a Disney trip without my clubs again.




    Lake Buena Vista is my favorite Disney course. My wife and I are annual pass holders




    We are going to Disney for New Years, I hope to play Magnolia in between, if not, don't matter, but I am a Disney nut as well....

    Even more muted than the M's? I found those to be very "dull" and "thud" like off the face relative to my very "ping" like crack of my Fly Z.

    I think this shows that 8 people can still give glowing reviews on a worldwide forum, of a trip away and the resultant Clubs, and not actually be paid for the privilege! Doubters on some other threads and on Youtube be aware.

    Great write ups guys! I've been refreshing this thread this whole week.



    How would you say the size of the 2017 fws compares to the Alpha 816 and XR16 models? What was the main difference people saw in the 2017s vs any other models tested?

    Those of us that tested/gamed the XR16 Sub Zero will probably not be surprised. I was SHOCKED at how forgiving that club was. Definitely more so with the weight in the back, but not bad at all with the weight in the front.

    First and foremost I have to send out a huge thanks to Callaway and GolfWRX for providing this opportunity. I had the trip of a lifetime and I feel like I cannot say "thank you" enough. When I was first contacted by HipCheck and asked if I would like to attend I was completely stunned. I wrote back "**** yes!", which I still don't think really conveyed how excited I was. Over the next few weeks the 8 of us were connecting through a group PM (along with HipCheck and Zak) so we could converse and get to know each other. Our chat is still going and I think is over 60 pages long.



    I took a lot more photos than I have shared here, but in an effort to not re-post those photos other participants have shared or that I have already shared within the thread, I left them out.



    Without further ado, here it is.......



    The night before I left for the trip I was contacted by Johnny Rodriguez, a Callaway representative. He informed me and everyone else that he was to be our group leader and would take care of whatever we needed. The entire group was participating in a group text that had my phone dinging constantly. So much for sleep! Sunday morning I awoke before the sun so I could be at the airport by 5:15 to catch my flight out of Richmond to Dallas, where I had a short layover before heading to San Diego. I met up with Paul (Mackepa)in the airport and we chatted until we had to board the plane. Unfortunately we sat a mile apart on the airbus.



    We landed around noon in San Diego we were met at the front door by a driver holding a Callaway sign. We followed him to the car (a nice BMW limo) and off we went, heading to the hotel which was about 30-40 minutes away. Once we arrived, Johnny was waiting for us. All I can say about Johnny is: what an awesome guy! He gave us our room keys and told us to get settle and come back down for a meet and greet. When I arrived at my room I couldn’t believe my eyes; the swag was in full effect already!

    After freshening up a bit, I headed down to the bar and met everyone. HipCheck, QMany, Gregh729,Waterboy, Sean2, Mackepa, Zakkozuchowski, MtlJeff, and Brizam were all there hanging out with Johnny, enjoying some tasty beverages and snacks. We chatted and laughed and I knew immediately that we were going to have a good time together. The whole crew are great guys who LOVE golf and LOVE discussing anything about golf.





    Around 5:00 we jumped on the shuttle and headed to the Ely Callaway Performance Center (ECPC) for a meet and greet with the folks from Callaway. I think everyone was in awe when we arrived. We were greeted at the gate by Chip Brewer and several other high-ups who were smiling ear to ear and shaking our hands, telling us they were happy to meet us and glad to have us there. We walked through the gate and all I could think was “this place is amazing!”. There was food, drinks, and even a guy who only spoke Spanish hand rolling cigars for us. We spent the first hour eating, drinking, rubbing elbows with the Callaway folks and chatting about golf.







    After a couple of beverages and some awesome food, we were given a tour of the facility. We got to see the build room, the simulator room, the putter fitting room, the robot room, etc., but we were not allowed to take any photos inside the building, which is why you won’t see any in the reviews from participants. After the tour we were split up into two groups; one group stayed inside and did the putter fitting and got to hit in the simulator while the other group went outside to play the 7 hole putting course set up on the outdoor putting green with some of the Callaway folks. Let me tell you, they were having as much fun as we were during the putting contest.



    When I went in for my putter fitting I met Nick Arther. Nick and I chatted for a little while about my putting before he watched from all sides as I rolled several putts. He then asked about my misses, my like, dislikes, and current putter(s). After some conversation and trying different putters, Nick suggested I go with a #1 Wide in the new putter line and I agreed.



    We all cycled in and out of the putter room, simulator room, and outdoor putting green. The Callaway staff was very engaging and sincerely curious about who we were and where we were from. They asked more questions about us than we did about them. They were genuinely interested in getting to know us and it showed.



    Around 8:30 we headed back to the hotel to partake in a few drinks and discuss our day. We were all like a bunch of kids who just spent three hours in a candy store without our parents. We talked, laughed, and Greg fell asleep….haha. Around 10:00 Johnny started talking about In-N-Out. Even though we had just eaten a few hours ago, everyone wanted to go. Johnny talked to the front desk clerk at the hotel and then grabbed the valet guy who pulled the hotel van around to the front. We hopped in and headed out. We placed our orders and waited calmly for our food. Once it was done we jumped back in the van and raced back to the hotel. We were hoping Greg was still there, asleep by the fire pit so we could wake him with the lingering scent of In-N-Out burgers. No such luck, he was gone!



























    My signature now contains all clubs I was fitted for at the ECPC.

    After we decided on the right shaft I was getting 4-8 yards more carry and the same gain in total distance. This doesn't sound like much as there were others who had much more impressive gains.

    Which shaft did you end up with?




    Diamana Blueboard 60X, but here's the kicker.......



    That night at dinner I was talking with Nate about our fitting and the subsequent builds by the tour department. He informed me that they didn't want to put a plain-old BB in my new driver because they found a Diamana B-Series Japan Only 60X in their shaft collection and installed it instead of the standard BB.



    What a treat! Its an awesome looking shaft!




    Had a similar experience with Callaway customer service quite a while ago (late in 2005 if memory serves correctly). Had found a FT-3 Tour (pretty sure that was the model) new in the pro shop at Barksdale AFB for a steal of a price. After playing a couple rounds it was obvious that the shaft was a little too light and soft, so called the company to see if I could send it in for a re-shaft. I explain the situation to the rep and it went something like this:



    Rep: So something stiffer and heavier...how about a Speeder 757X?

    Me: Sure, how much to make that happen?

    Rep: You cover the shipping back to us, and we'll make it happen.

    Me: Wow...uh...OK, you sure?

    Rep: Absolutely.



    After some time in the wilderness before Brewer took over, the Callaway product is finally an equal to what has always been outstanding customer support.

    wrong is not enough to make you right.

    Anyone who has dealt with Callaway Customer Service can absolutely attest to that. They are the best in the business - and best in a whole lot of other businesses too.

    It started to pay off towards the end with great rolls on 15-16-17. 18 was just adrenaline. I had a hard time reading the greens, they were a little grainy and kept going towards something they called "Big Blue."

    I think the thing I was most surprised about was the sound of the New 2017 Driver. It reminds me of the last Callaway club I had in the bag, the Razr Hawk Tour. It is muted but solid. I think you can hear it in the videos posted; it is an addicting sound off the face.




    very good to hear!

    I loved the sound as well. What a lot of people are going to find crazy is that the Low Spin Model is more forgiving than the Regular Model.




    Really? With the heavier weight in the back, I'm guessing?
