  1. Really good points, I currently bag and own the 0211 but here in the UK the Gen4 works out to around US$485..........around 70% more than the 0211. I might sell some shafts and my SIM and try to snag a Gen4 later on. I must say, I am very impressed with the 0211 though, price aside. It is the closest thing I've hit to the TM M2 2016.
  2. I currently game the PXG 0211, 9 deg with Tensei Pro White. Also own a SIM 9 deg and have tested a friends SIM MAX. For me, the PXG was the better club, just through consistency, accuracy and the face height at address. The sim is much more shallow and miss is slightly high on the face, plus the PXG seems more neutral over the SIM which likes to go right. For what its worth, I'm a 1 hcp and find the 0211 more forgiving than both the SIM and SIM Max. Plus it looks great at address and sounds perfect, to me anyway. Like the OP, what I'd like to know, is the Gen4 worth upgrading to over the 0211? Is it worth the extra money? The 0211 is maxed on ball speed, sounds and looks great, does the Gen4 just provide increased fitting options?
  3. Still playing an old faithful Adams Pro Black 9031, with the original Project X Graphite Hybrid shaft- HC1. I believe this is the same as 6.5 flex? Currently playing Project X steel 6.5 in my irons, looking for a modern day version which will play the same as the HC1. Reason for the change is, as much as I like the 9031, mishits are very punishing and you really need a decent lie to make it work. Looking at a PXG 0317X or Titleist TS3. I could get the Project X Smoke black 80g, or Riptide 85g. Any thoughts?
  4. I play this shaft currently in my Mavrik driver and previously Epic SZ. During which time I’ve hit some of the longest drives I’ve ever hit. Typical Diamana feel, very smooth but also stable. In the TX it is not as high launch and spin as people would have you believe. Unlike previous Diamana ‘red’ shafts this for me is more mid-mid. Whether this shaft suits you or not is hard to say, best to try if you can which I guess in most places is pretty difficult.
  5. There may be others who could give better advice on this one. I was fitted for Project X in my irons, so for me the graphite PX are fine. But for others PX can feel boardy, tip stiff and hard work.
  6. Got out on the course last night for 10 holes to test. Overall I am very impressed, I noticed others have said they didn't like the feel but for me I really enjoyed it, it does have a muted thwack sound, very much like my old Adams idea pro black. I compared to my Callaway X Forged UT and the sound difference is quite pronounced, the Callaway has a metallic, hollow tink which I really don't like. I also find the UDI more forgiving, easier to elevate from the deck and does not dig easily. I've attached some images against my Callaway UT, you can see blade length is actually quite similar, but the UDI has a thicker topline which hides the back of the club quite well. Distance wise it was around the normal 2 iron / hybrid spot, for me around 225-230 yard carry. On one par four I dropped a couple of balls down in the fairway 225 out and found them very easy to elevate from the deck and they ended up pin high. One thing I'm not sure on yet, it does seem to draw more easily than I'm used to, but I still need to change the grip to my usual midsize, so will hold off saying the club has a draw bias until I use my normal larger grip size. As much as I like it and it will stay in my bag, I'd be surprised if I does well on tour. If you want low, use the P790 UDI, if you want height and versatility from the rough, use the SIM MAX hybrid or a 5 wood. For me though, I play in the wind and need a lower ball flight. But even with a 3 handicap I found the P790 UDI too inconsistent, this bridges the gap and gives a lower flight, with added forgiveness.
  7. Ordered from Jamgolf.com Came the next day before the official release date. If you play off 18 I would be cautious of the SIM UDI as the forgiveness is limited. The SIM DHY as you suggested may be better, cheaper option which is still fantastic is the Adams DHY, can be had for 30-50 quid on ebay.
  8. Had my first hit with my 2 UDI & Thump 100 X. This slot has previously been filled with either a Callaway X Forged UT, 18 deg with PX steel 6.5 or my trusty Adams Idea Pro Black. First off, the sound and feel is excellent. Compared to the Callaway UT it is much more solid and muted, actually similar to the Adams pro black. Heel to toe it is longer than the Callaway UT and I would say the forgiveness is also better than the UT. Shots hit slightly skinny still felt good and got up with little distance loss. For me, it was very easy to elevate, launched up quickly but then flattened out producing a trajectory I really like. Likewise, when trying to hit low it was easy to keep down and hit a controlled punch. The thump shaft also feels very stable and having just over 100g in a utility is a big plus for me. I have tried other utility irons in the past, but 70-80g stock shafts are hard to control. Weather permitting I’m going to try on the course later today and compare yardage to my other clubs. Will also shoot some comparison pics against my Callaway.
  9. I'm in the UK and my UDI turned up this morning with the Thump 100 X. Looks very sleek and much better finish then the GAPR. Hoping to try at the range today and then on the course tomorrow. Currently have a Callaway X forged UT 18 deg that I'm looking to replace as it sounds very hollow and tinny.
  10. Thanks, tried it at the range against the stock Tour 65 in X. Felt much smoother and produced a flatter flight for me, actually felt very similar to the standard Fuji Pro 73 I have in my fairway so going to give it a go this weekend.
  11. Picked this shaft up off eBay for my G400LST to match the Fuji Pro 73 in my fairway, but the markings differ and it says KURO 75. Anyone have an idea what this shaft is and what I can expect?
  12. Not my intention, commonly it is sterotyped people with an above average IQ struggle to perform simple manual tasks, not the other way round. More to do with finding it strange it looks like he could round the head of the screw off in the process. You'd think given the frequency of using adjustable clubs he'd be pretty proficient - or ask TM to check / torque appropriately?
  13. https://www.youtube....h?v=dq_NOYW_kBg @ 22 seconds DJ starts to adjust his M1 Driver. Firstly surprising he's adjusting this on the fly just before the Masters Secondly, looks like he's struggling to use that wrench properly!
  14. Been working in East Asia for a few years now, there is a very wide choice of grips - Iomic, NO1, Elite etc. I've never seen this colour-way of Iomic, I currently have some Blue 2.3 Sticky, black end cap, white lettering. My gut feeling, if I saw this colour-way I'd think it's a fake. Any one seen this colour-way before?
  15. Channel shut down as well. Damn, I get up to watch my morning 'Golf Fix', boom - shut down. I wouldn't mind so much if the PGAtour didn't produce such horrible highlights and pointless Youtube content. Anyway, if anyone spots a replacement, please post.
