  1. currently playing a mizuno st190 and although do like it well just thinking of changing or upgrading, but keeping price reasonable. thoughts are the STZ or pxg perhaps the xf model, even though i haven't hit either yet. any comments on either or those who have hit both, any opinions? guessing from what i currently have, are there any plusses or minuses with each of these? thanks for any opinions.
  2. Yes, you are correct. It must eventually curve and go left. Guess I really should have asked was if a way inside to right downswing loses distance. Getting a correct path has always been my downfall. Luckily I can time my stall/flip well enough to play decent...just wonder how much I'm losing out on? Thanks
  3. I find I have part 1 of the drill but not part 2 where you swing to target. Will get to range and practice this
  4. Thanks, I've got that video. I'll rewatch it.
  5. Basically I need to change swing path. Always to the right, so likely I'm not getting to max speed.
  6. Somehow I'll try to post it. But in simple terms, is it faster swinging circular than straightish from the top?
  7. I tend to swing from top of backswing straight to the ball(way to the right) without really going in an arc around. how much of a speed loss am I getting by going in a straightish line without really swinging so much in a natural arc?
  8. I have a Mizuno st190 with stock Fuji Atmos 5s in it currently. Don't have any issue hitting it. I also have my shaft from an older Cobra F8, which is the aldila nv 2kxv blue 60 in stiff. what are the real differences between these two, if any really? Just wonder what I may gain if I tried the aldila in the Mizuno? Has one rec'd better reviews or are both a similar mid spin, mid flight shaft to accomodate majority of golfers. Thanks so much. I like the Mizuno st 190 but have not hit the new SZ. think i'm really missing out on anything? 10 extra yards would be nice!!
  9. 1. City, State? Florissant, Missouri 2. Handicap? not registered, but prob be 6-8 3. Current driver? Mizuno ST190 4. Why do you want to test the C721 driver? Great comments I hear plus the new tech, materials, and a better fit. 5. Are you able to test equipment on a golf course with one week of its receipt? definately 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? yes, for sure
  10. I think everyone has figured it out for me. i shorten the radius prob by doing two things. i do release right arm a bit early and it bottoms out early. to fix it, i do have to stand up and/or raise up my hands or arms but this causes the thin shots. do find it odd that i do stay down when hitting my sister's clubs and strike them real pure. i do see in my setup that i have weight on my right hip a bit and my chest is not totally centered. i will work on these things at the range this weekend. thanks for the tips, and anything else please let me know. so irritation because i hit a straight ball, but that low contact has got to cost me what, maybe 7-10 yards perhaps?
  11. I do same thing, even low contact on irons. Jus cant figure it out. I have most of Montes videos Any part of one of them addresses this?
  12. I hit many irons, even driver, low on face. Longish arms. Seems I can hit ladies lengh almost better. I believe I shorten my radius in order to not hit behind ball. Other option is stand further away and flatten lie of clubs. Which may seem more logical?
  13. currently playing mizuno st 190 driver. somewhat thinking of changing. i do like it, but not sure if i'm missing out on anything else. for perhaps roughly the same amount of money, i am kind of thinking either last year's Sim Max or the new mizuno stz. Any opinions from anyone? Haven't really seen too many comments about the new mizuno yet. I did hit someone's tm M6 a year ago and liked it a bit. thanks
  14. How awesome would this be? 1. City and State? St. Louis, Mo 2. Handicap? 5-9, nothing official 3. What ZX iron set do you want to test? combo preferable, but leaning toward zx5 3. Are you able to test equipment on a golf course with one week of its receipt? I'll find a way for sure. weather won't stop me 4. Current Iron setup? Bridgestone J40 pcb with nippon 105. would like 115 gram 5. What is the most exciting thing about the ZX irons? a buddy has last year's model. I've hit them and love them! This year's look so awesome, and from what I hear feel even better! 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Yes
  15. still surprised haven't seen any comments if the Mizuno stx or stz have been hit and reviewed yet. The only one i have seen was the one of the mizuno sponsored gal. when will anyone be able to hit these?
  16. i like the crossfield video as well as mike malaska's. seems to be saying to do a sim thing. don't have the furniture movers, so it's still hard for me to envision that. other than that, i've been just trying to tell myself to just get out of my own way on the downswing. haven't hit a ball in awhile, but just that thought gets me to turn better. if not, i tend to hump a bit.
  17. yes, i am still confused. on backswing, i thought weight goes to left foot forefront and left knee bends in at bit, and right foot weight goes toward heels? what am i not getting? thanks
  18. wouldn't it be the opposite? may have been a mark crossfield video where he says movement is like you're on skis. on backswing feeling is like right foot goes back like weight is going to heels, and lead feels like going reverse of that. on downswing, it is just reversed.
  19. hoping that mizuno's new driver will equal that of the new titleist and cobra. mizuno pricing will prob be closer and more affordable than the titleist.
  20. 1. City, State? Florissant, Missouri 2. Handicap? 7-9 3. Current driver setup? Mizuno st190/Fuji Atmos 5s 4. What KBS TD wood shaft do you want to win? Cat 3 50 or 60 gram depending on fit 5. Why do you want to win a KBS TD shaft? Would like high end, fit shaft. my spin is high, so this would hopefully help lower it. Have enjoyed my kbs iron shafts. 6. Would you be open and honest about your swing with an expert from KBS? yes, very much so.
  21. i normally did have hands away in backswing and when coming into the the ball they went out toward the ball, which is causing my flip i believe and coming up on the ball too early. i know it's prob lowpoint control. watched something on one pro say to get hands to come more in and not to chase down the line as that would give you shanks and heel shots. even little pitch shots in my living room i'm just hitting a portion of the ball and skulling it.
  22. I always hit thin shorts....iron and woods. Barely get a groove sometime Prob raising my arms up coming into and through ball with extension or something. Would a thought possibly be as simple as saying to myself as "hit with top or topline" of the club, or any other suggestions?
  23. I would assume the Blue, but would love to go through the actual fitting for something more accurate. Great opportunity.
  24. 1. City and State? St. Louis, Mo 2. Handicap? 7 3. Are you able to test equipment on a golf course with one week of its receipt? Yes 4. Current Iron setup? Bridgestone J40 dpc 5. What is the top thing you look for when buying new irons? looks, soft feel 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? yes
  25. I am having an issue hitting full shots. I get the typical hump/early release and thus standing up/out of shots and hitting generally thin shots, even with driver. I really don't have any issue hitting a stinger type, hard punch shot, but just can't get into same position with full swing. i am so ball focused, i sometimes really don't feel much follow through, maybe because i don't even try to thinking i would be more off balanced. any suggestions? thanks
