  1. Shaft would be the last place to when trying to reduce spin. First check impact pattern for low strikes, then use a LM to determine dynamic&spin loft. If both impact and delivery are OK and spin is still too high, try the LST. What flex are you playing the Tour 65? If an X you might give the stock Rogue white a try and see what it does for you, but a shaft change will affect other parameters more than spin. Delivery & impact first, head second and shaft third.
  2. incorreclty-named Tiger stepping and Spinner trick You could go X7 8 iron if you really need to, but the heavier S400 might be a fit. Hard to say on paper. Both are a bit heavier in the wedge but can impact ball flight differently. X7 could lower launch and up spin. S400 is more suited for partials.
  3. Yup, yet another 'us vs them' gripe by someone who sees the new WHS as imperfect and therefore 'bad'. PG Woodhouse' oldest member seems appropriate? The faux to-the-decimal-point-accurate charade is similar to the old system(s), it just moves an index a little one way or another. A player might get one or a few more/less strokes than before, but within 8-20 rounds that will be corrected to reflect/fit his or her playing ability again. Once the dust settles everyone will have just as an (in)accurate cap as before. Provides he/she plays regularly and keeps accurate scores, which of course is the
  4. > @Mych said: > I liked the SS Pistol 2.0, but my current favorite is the SS Traxion Claw 2.0. It has a pistol top hand and rectangular lower hand. I started out using it with a claw grip, but now I primarily use a standard (slight overlap) grip and it has been great for keeping my SBST stroke on path. Also has the SS counterweight system if you like more weight in the hands. Did you by any chance try the Claw 2.0 and Pistol GT 2.0 side by side? If so, what is the shape difference? I like the flat/square lower portion of the Claw, but would go for the slightly larger diameter of the
  5. The CT-100 are very good and high quality shafts but unfortunately expensive. $75 is a more realistic price (check their site) and IMHO puring is not necessary for them. Modus 105 is 'close' in profile (should not balloon) but has a noticeably different feel that you either like or not. Dispersion/flight should be close, so be sure to try. Since it is a no up-charge option you could always start there and have the upgrade to CT as a future option.
  6. It doesn't :tongue: To quote Fuji:"The PRO 2.0 is softer handle section than ATMOS, so they're definitely different profiles for golfers seeking a certain type of feel in their hands and also performance wise. Our goal with 2.0 is to get the ball in the air a bit more quickly while keeping spin down (more so than ATMOS). The torque is much lower in the mid and tip on 2.0 than original PRO, so we're seeing lower spin numbers. Tour Spec PRO 2.0 is definitely a stout product with low spin though." Skipping the marketing BS about shafts themselves being high or low launch/spin, the EI profile
  7. There are none....;) Basically it's always a matter making launch, and i a lesser regard spin, match ball speed. High COR iron faces result in higher ball speeds > at the same launch the ball will apex higher. Depending on the spin the player generates, that might offset/tweak the flight. The most sensiible approach is to hit the new iron, check apex and flight, then tweak loft if necessary to achieve the preferred flight while not forgetting turf interaction (bounce/sole design). Those CBs should not generate significantly higher ball speeds (basically a traditional design face) and 'sho
  8. In addition to the above: what matters most is ball speed/launch/spin on the device (second) and actual distance/result on the course (first). Remember that all LM's use proprietary algorithms to CALCULATE what is not actually measured, so differences will occur. If used well all of the mentioned LM's will help a fitter/coach to get swing & club synced for optimal results. Improperly used results can be horrendous (or laughable). On-line or integrated 'optimizers' are ball park, not exact science.
  9. Grab a caliper to be sure :) shaft should be .355 but hosel itself could be closer to .362.
  10. Not 100% sure since I don't have it in hand, but it looks like the meat of the adapter is the same, just changed markings and a different shape ferule.
  11. If you're having trouble finding the middle of the face, most likely you'll be better off with a shorter playing length. Too long a playing length is usually the #1 (equipment) factor that contributes to poor impact. #2 is typically swing weight and/or shaft weight being a poor fit. http://www.golfwrx.c...up-diy-fitting/ +1 Also, CG shift between the most extreme heel/toe biased is less than half an inch. Total head weight and shaft/tip flexibility will have a far greater effect on impact point through droop/deflection. Impact point 'rules' all launch aspects, so without consistent/ce
  12. YES, depending on the player of course :) In my experience some are very sensitive to a change in in balance, but as a rule every player has their own 'sweet spot' where they swing the club not only faster, but smoother and more in control. Fore those not so sensitive to overall balance this is more related to total weight but even then balance can often be used to offset an undesired total weight. It just depends on what works for a certain player. Nicklaus and Garcia are well known for using butt counter weighing.
  13. All the TX flex models of the X-Torsion line were designed for Tour. This applies to all weights as long as it is a TX flex. AFAIK the only Copper TX is 70g (vs. 70g/80g TX Greens), so thats the one for sure. Any way to tell it apart from the 70g X (non-tour) other than the T/TX designation? Maybe difference in cpm of any noticeable construction/material difference? There is a 60tx Copperhead as well as Black and Green. Tour only of course but available through us. Visually the only distinguishing aspect is the TX flex designation. Thanks, I completely forgot the 60TX. It's not on the Aldila

  15. There is not much info mostly because ACCRA doesn't cater to OEMs, strictly after market, and they don't have a huge marketing budget to give away shafts for testing. Your best source of info is ACCRA themselves and any club fitter with an account. Since you were fitted for it, your fitter is a good place to start....
