    based on what I am reading on the Oban website it seems a Kiyoshi black 65x might be the ticket in the 3w due to similar profiles



    any Oban graphite experts out there?




    What info are you looking for? I’ve had all of Kiyoshi’s except for the Limited.




    What shafts in 65x (3w) and 75x (5w) would partner well with the purple 55x in driver. A few years back I loved the 65x purple in a 7w but made a trade I regret



    The gold and whites I have are both 65 .. 04 flex .. I thought the white was 75 ! Curses




    If you like the Purple 55x in the driver, the best bet is to stay with the Purple in a 65x in the 3 wood. The White doesn’t kick as much as the Purple and the White feels a little more stout.



    I think you mentioned the Black earlier. For me the Black felt a little dead compared to the White. But, for me the Black tended to be more “straight” or accurate in the fairway. I just preferred the feel of the White and Purple more.

    Will be picking up a Cally UT 30*. ((Thanks to some member here who's WITB caught my attention w UT's and a Miura 7-W set up.)) I AM SO WEAK !!!!!!!!!!!!



    Anyways, grabbed an Apex Pro CF16 7i with a steelfiber 110s last night (2 flat). Deal was so good I couldn't ignore it on CPO



    These two clubs will be very nice with my 8, 9 and PW x-proto blades in a back up set ... could be all Callaway from 3w right thru to GW! Just need a 56* and 62* and a driver.

    I think the steelfibers will be keepers. The 110 felt great in my 8 and 9 and the 125 was awesome in my PW and SW. LW undecided.



    I need to decide where the 110 and 125 break will be exactly after more playing time and I still don't have the 95s in my 6 iron yet

    The Oban purple 55x is so good for me in the LST head. I marvel at how good this is vs how not good the max was.



    Also loved the Oban White in the 5w, and decided to order the g400 five wood for it to go in ... fwy heads must match the driver you know, OCD to some degree I guess



    Birthday eve today ... just grabbed an Oban Isawa 65x for the g400 3 wood off the bay. The gold in stiff is out ! All g400 and all Oban for 2019 !!!

    Yeh I really like the idea of doing the split weights by yourself and giving you the flighted type set.



    Hope it all works out for next season.

    Wow I am just discovering this thread and I spent a breathless last 25 minutes trying to keep up! Lots of ins, lots of outs, lots of shafts in the old duders hands... (Lebowski reference)



    You are my hero. One day my finances and free time will line up to properly support my burgeoning obsession.



    Question on all the testing, are you building components in the garage or taking them to a shop? Seems like so much regripping, bending, and tip adapter swaps.

    Yup, the 3,4 and 5 are awesome. 2 is too low loft for me



    The 3 in the bag now displaced my two favourite 7 woods ... and I love seven woods

    Red tee birthday challenge at Windswept completed again today



    81 from 7800. Not much roll, sea level, cool when I was first off at 730am ... 10*C



    The par 4's killed me. Wore out the 3 wood. Couldnt reach far too many of them. 51 is not the new 30....



    Missed 6 twelve foot par putts, Bermuda greens do NOT break. One double, no birdies



    Local guy told me this area usually has 20 inches of rain per year ... 2018 is at 100" !!!



    I can say the Glides are amazing greenside down here and the 125 SF are awesome in them from all yardages and partial shots

    Defcon level 5 problem in the Panhandle. The fitter down here tossed Ping adapters on the Revenge and Isawa shafts for me. Told him to keep the Revenge in driver length as he has no Iomic grips.



    Herein lies the rub .... Me thinks the Revenge 65x may be better than the Purple 55x in a driver. Stripe show today - was hitting high baby draws 275 down the pipe all day, which is very solid for me at sea level with non firm fairways.



    What to do? 55x in 3w or hunt down my beloved purple 65x again? I know the answer, I am a weak man.



    Side note: The rapture irons are easy breezy but a whisker pully. Lots of left side fringes today. Should resolve when flattened 3* when I get home. Love the 5 thru 7.



    PS. I'm dropping three scratch rounds (two 72's and a 74) in the next 5 rounds from my cap, I'm gonna be a force in net games come April. How anyone can go low on Bermuda greens escapes me.

    Mitch,



    I think I hit 14 greens ystdy -if you include fringes - and shot 76. One birdie, a 3 footer on 17. Lowlite was knockdown wedge hitting 3" from the cup on 18 and then 3 jacking in front of a patio gallery of 30 from 12 feet above the hole. Hit It four feet too hard and a foot too far right. 36 on the back should've been 32. This of course is after the TN boys in front of me yapping to all their buds about the big hitter behind them (I hit over their heads on a par 5 dog leg by accident). Boy oh boy did they razz me on the three jack. Well deserved. Good fun.



    How putts cannot follow slopes is a new trick for an old dog and of course the speed changes for into and down green putts are a riddle wrapped in an enigma and dark webbed by cypher

    Back on the Aldila train. I would hit one crazy block every 12 holes or so for some reason with Obans ... and a block NEVER happens for me



    If you like a stiff driver that kicks like a mule. Try the NL in my sig ... amazing shaft in the 10* LST head ( for my swing speed anyways ... ymmv )

    Yes, you need to find the right head for spin. Best feel of any shaft, a big kick



    Close 2nd is RIP Beta ... which I dropped into a 3w

    Ahhh, I see. I don't tend to do well with shafts that kick a lot. I like to feel like I'm swinging a 2x4

    Driver shaft shootout at PING Canada today while I waited for some clubs to be flattened



    Driver speed: 102-3 ish Carry: mid 250's Launch: 12* Run out mid 280's



    The winner was the Oban Revenge 65x (electronically anyways)



    Runner Ups: Oban Purple 55x, Blueboard 53x, Aldila NL 60x



    I need to work back to 108-109 where I was 18 months ago (carrying it low 270's). Instructor and I targeting 111 once this elbow comes fully around.



    I can still swing my 3w at 100 ... so some driver mechanics work to do. 8 iron carry has dropped from 168 to 160. Age and injuries !!! CURSES !

    I'm also going to toss some 95g shafts in my Rapture J-spec five and six irons and see how those perform



    I think the J-spec 3 and 4 irons are permanently benched. The Apex 4h and 20* heavenwood are just too easy to hit

    I had Ping bend the J spec five and six irons to orange dots ... will be a good blend into the s55 short irons (Fujikura mci100s) and

    create a graphite shaft shootout vs the US spec Raptures

    Is the J spec the one on the right with more offset?

    No the J spec is on the left. The J spec's have stronger lofts and less offset. They are great long irons to partner with modern USA Ping short irons. Hot Ti face and big tungsten plug in toe + plus the old Ping finish that never wears out



    I have some Jspec Rapture V1 three and four iron heads to offload and also a Rapture J v2 head to offload FWIW

    Interesting, I always thought the Japanese preferred more offset, though I can understand the stronger lofts.
