  1. I am interested as well. Looking to move on from my ping s55's and these are the two irons I will be testing. Thank you for any guidance
  2. Currently playing the Rogue SZ coming from the Epic. Before the Epic I gamed the LTD. To this day I wish I had held on to that driver. For me, the LTD was more forgiving, just as long and better sounding. I will say the Rogue is an awesome driver, by moving the weight forward it brought the spin rate down around 200-300 rpm for me averaging around 2500. The LTD was even lower, in the low 2000's. Same loft, LTD was lower launch. Probably not the fairest of comparisons since I played a Hazardous black in the LTD and have a Rogue white in the SZ. Either way, both are really good drivers and with the proper fit you can't go wrong with whichever you choose. Good luck!
  3. Golf is the best game in the world and golfwrx is the best golf site. It's great to see so many golfers from all over the world recognize where to go to get anything the great game has to offer.
  4. Those look great, did you strip the orange first ?
  5. Thanks so much cwolffe888. I appreciate your help!
  6. I called Cobra customer service and got 3 different answers so I was hoping someone with experience with these would know! Thanks
  7. Hi Guys, Need some help from someone that knows something about the new LTD pro driver adapters. Dilemma: I have a right handed driver and have a shaft that I want to put in it. My club fitter ordered a new adapter and they sent him a left handed adapter. He put the shaft in it because I need it tomorrow. Can someone please tell me what I need to set the left handed adapter to in order to achieve a right handed 9.5 straight flight? I'm going to switch it next week but for now I need your expertise. Thanks Fellas

Is it difficult to swap a titleist adapter to a ping adapter?[/quote] Nope but the prep area is higher for the Titleist adapter so you will see some of the prep area when you put a ping adapter on. However, someone said Billy Bob's adapters are a little higher. [/quote]cool, thank you[/quote] Anytime man. Just update us with what you decide. Good Luck!! [/quote]i will thanks again

My swing speed is around 108 with my driver. I had a terrible time with the stock 75 gram stiff shaft and tried several other options. All of which were better than the stock one. I am normally an Oban Kiyoshi guy but ended up with a new shaft company called black ops. They make several different ones but I am using the pearl 72x version. I don't quite have the typical swing speed for an X flex but for some reason x flex works best for my wacky swing. At any rate, please give the black ops company a look as they make top of the line shafts and I have never had a better combo than this current setup. Good luck [/quote]Skillet, I had a chance to check out the black ops website, looks intriguing. Did you get a chance to test the Oban purple 65 versus the pearl? If so how did they differ? The oban was one shaft I was considering.[/quote] I have a Speeder 661 tipped an inch and love it. However, if you are interested in an oban purple 05 65grams with ping adapter then I have one in my closet. I purchase it before my fitting and well afterwards it doesn't fit me....club ho problems [/quote]I may be interested, I would like to try it first. Hopefully, I can try a few options in the next week or so. Out of curiosity, how does the 661 differ for you versus the oban?[/quote] Well, it's an X and the Speeder is S+ so the Oban takes some more girth to get it to react. I used to have the 70x Ahina w/Anser so I thought I was an X when I purchase it. However, they are similar and very smooth but having to swing harder ain't always good as I'm starting to learn. I didn't get it a chance to see the roll out because it was wet when I was using it. Unfortunately, I don't want to temp myself after being fitted and spending the money for the upgraded shaft. [/quote]I hear ya, if it ain't broke don't fix it. I appreciate the feedback. I may just try my whiteboard in the Ping if it's an easy fix and go from there.

  14. [quote name='Hstead' timestamp='1398875822' post='9204089'] I have an i25 9.5 and JW talked me into trying the stock PWR 65 Tour X. My ss is 119 and I haven't played a stock driver shaft since about 1996. I have a few shafts from my G25 that I tested against the stock shaft and lo and behold the stock shaft was better for me. I would have ordered and upgrade shaft or used one of my higher end shafts from my G25 had JW not made the recommendation. Glad I listened. There are a couple of Ping Tour players using the PWR too. [/quote]Thank you for the info. I really like the I25 and there is no doubt it spins less than the 913 D3 for me. I will have to take the time to try and find a fitter with some more options. I was hoping that someone that has done some fittings or tried several shafts could give me some ideas. When I had the fitting with my Titleist the white board gave me the best #'s. The project X was a close second, however this was a year and a half ago so i figured there may be some newer, better shaft offerings. Thanks again!
  15. [quote name='etotheo' timestamp='1398871318' post='9203441'] I moved the 'ahina 70 x-stiff from my old Anser into my 9.5* (set to 9*) i25 driver and love the pairing. I've never hit the ball so straight in my life (though I've overhauled my swing over the winter with my instructor). My numbers are similar to yours (107ss, 154bs, LA @ 16* and ~2400rpm). [/quote]That's great to hear, any thoughts on how the whiteboard would peform with this head?
