  1. The stock Diamana S+ is a really nice mid/high launching fairway shaft (Or the D+ if you need lower launch/spin). I wouldn't bother upgrading unless you just hate the feel of the Diamana for some reason. It should be somewhat comparable to the Ping shaft.
  2. I love mine. Very nice feeling and just hits dead straight bombs. Easy to hit off turf too. The Red Tie shaft has fit me really well. Overall it's the best fairway wood I've owned.
  3. I've been playing with a swing like that forever. I've gotten down to a 3.4 handicap before, but I would never recommend anyone try to swing that way. I just never had lessons and have a terrible wrist set. I'm working on it now because I think it causes enough inconsistency that I don't think I can actually improve much more with it. Being on plane or even outside like Jim Furyk is going to give a person a much easier path to drop the club inside.
  4. I would give the stock Kuro Silver a fair shot. I never play stock shafts, but have stuck with the Kuro after trying a few other combos. Nice mid-high bombs for me. It seems to deemphasize the fade bias more than other shafts. I hit it very straight.
  5. One of the best things I've ever done has been to get a center shafted putter. It made a world of difference for my putting alignment. I would at least recommend a non-offset shaft if you don't like the center shaft. I also agree that if anything it is a benefit in a full swing because your head is in a better position. I wouldn't be surprised if a majority of left eye dominant golfers hit draws also.
  6. Donate it to a museum. I mean who do I think I am having a driver that is more than a year old.
  7. Don't buy a shaft to fix a swing flaw. You just have to find one that fits your launch and spin characteristics and go from there. Maybe try a regular flex because too stiff of a shaft can cause a bit more of a chance of a fade, but nothing will fix a slice.
  8. Use the search function.

  9. I think Ping drivers tend to be a degree or 2 higher than what the head is marked for. Titleist is closer to the stated loft.
  10. You could get a used 910D2/D3 that would work great for what you want to do.
  11. Of course you will have a bit less traction without spikes. It's impossible to say how much worse spikeless shoes would be for you, but if you struggle with slipping I would go with the spiked version. Spikeless may be more comfortable, but I wouldn't wear them if I had footwork issues.
  12. CS Spider Blade looks great. Can't wait to try that one out.

  14. [quote name='alwaysatrueswinger' timestamp='1363998939' post='6668309'] [quote name='jrodgers0622' timestamp='1360899662' post='6432039'] I just got my xhp irons in the mail on monday but i was at a college tournament in sea island till yesterday, so i just now got to take them to the range today. I have to say the feel is pretty good for a cast club but not as good as my razr x forged irons. The distance is ok i gained about 5 yards per club due to the stronger lofts. My biggest concern is the offset on these irons, i play a draw and these can be hook machines if you get quick with your hands. The px 95 flighted shaft is a good shaft with a mid ball flight in the mid and short irons and a high flight with the long irons. The weight of the shafts are lower in the long irons (98g in 6.0) and decend downward (105g in mid irons) and (110 in short irons). The weight is gonna take some getting used too coming from the kbs tour shaft. Overall a good iron and i will put them to the test on the course this weekend and make my final decision on wether i will keep them or sell them and pick up a set of x forged with pxi's. [/quote] You should have stayed with kbs tours.. [/quote] I'm loving the KBS tours in these. I hit the ball low, but I've been hitting nice high and flat bombs with these irons.
  15. I got a T10 lob wedge to try out something with low bounce. It has been money so far. Very versatile. I've always likes Vokeys, but Mizuno has a good thing going recently with their wedges.
  16. [quote name='erock9174' timestamp='1363708672' post='6643633'] To the original poster. Did you consider Golfsense? I know one of the knocks on it like many if the units is it doesn't provide swing tips. Which from what I understand has now been added with their latest software app. For $129 it sounds very similar to swing tip and also attaches to the glove so ease of club swapping is achieved. Also you can put your phone in your pocket and it measures hip turn which I think is the only unit to offer that. I just posted all this because I like you am interested in buying one and right now the Golfsense unit is the front runner for me. Just would like a little more feedback before pulling the trigger. [/quote] I've tried the Golfsense and didn't like the data it relayed back. You can see your swing path which is great, but you only have one other person to compare to. The numbers that it does give you are basically pointless unless you are doing something very wrong. If you want something to capture swing path it isn't terrible, but I want to try one with more data.
  17. I wouldn't worry about the number on the club. I've seen 4 hybrids that would be labeled 5 hybrids by other companies. Looks like a 5 hybrid would work great for you.
  18. I had also heard a couple people say they got PXi for free, but I was told there was an upcharge. I went for KBS instead.
