just played my first full season with my driver after having the cor increased and it worked I gained 5 - 8 mph of ball speed. I was starting to lose some distance with age and my buddy who I used to be even with was getting past me too often and my ego couldn't handle that so I did the hot drivers thing and I'm back with him and past him most of the time.

    Who did it, and how far are you hitting it?

    driver is an M2 and I went with their recommended COR based on swing speed I don't remember what that was but I didn't want to push it to far because I don't want the face to crack.

    This explains a lot. Never knew what driver shaving was. Thought it related to a reconditioning kind of thing.

    Driver: Nobody cares

    Fairway woods: Whatever brand gets me "brownie points."

    Irons: Why not?

    Wedges: The bouncy ones or was that the grindy kind; can't quite remember.

    Putter: When needed

    Golf ball: Duh,...can't play without one, lol. 🙄

    NOW LET'S GO PLAY SOME GOLF!

    Did it straighten the ball out as well? Meaning less backspin.
