  1. Does it say what type of kbs shaft on it? Based on what you just said my assumption is that your new iron has a heavier shaft than your current set. Very common to leave the ball right and not feel like you can get the club face square if the shaft is to heavy.
  2. You probably just need more heat or longer time. What are you using to heat it?
  3. Where are you reading that? Everything says it's the soft low launch and spin model. Nothing about that has changed.
  4. This is why I started buying nicer head covers. I wanted something shiny in the bag and while a $75 headcover seems ridiculous, it's much cheaper than a $400 driver and still gives me the same shiny new feeling.
  5. No. Green is part of the adapter. That part is epoxied to the part that is marked with the numbers. There is an inner sleeve and outer sleeve.
  6. You're probably not strong enough to swing a driver. Something that isn't really talked about is that a longer club resists being sped up more than a shorter one. If you give an average person a 45 and 48 inch driver, you would be surprised to see the increase in speed isn't really that much, and may actually be slower because of the resistive force. This is why lighter shafts allow longer club lengths because it allows the average person to over come those forces. In your case if you are already playing an ultra light driver shaft you probably don't have the strength to hit it. If you don't have an ultra light shaft you should go to one.
  7. Pro V1 left dot. You'll get a little less spin in the short clubs, but you get the extra distance with the driver. Good luck finding it.
  8. Increase closes the face, decrease opens on wide sole clubs only (woods, hybrids). The reason the open close happens is because of how the club sits on the ground. With irons the sole is too narrow to force it to sit differently so it becomes just a loft adjustment with the bounce playing a little different.
  9. Disagree. TM did something similar for some of their staffers just because. Tiger, Rory, and DJ all had custom designed irons with their name on them at some point last year. Most of these companies have the ability to mill prototype sets.
  10. Range balls suck, never use them to gauge distance. I would say you normal distances are at 25C. For every 10C down loose a clubs worth of distance (10 yards).
  11. And this is why you remove wood heads when you travel.
  12. Carbon fiber is definitely an impact material. It's been used in baseball bats and hockey sticks for years.
  13. If you want a cheaper version all the new cobra putters have the face technology.
  14. On the bst Facebook group they are selling for about the same as retail. Should be able to pick one up at cost or cheaper if you really want it.
  15. Liked the french fry and Queen Ann covers. Unfortunately neither comes in a mallet cover. So I compromised got a cookie.
  16. This is less a milled vs forged and just a metal difference. Muria is 1020 steel while pxg is 8620. 1020 is a bit softer than than 8620. That's is what you are feeling.

    Vokey 55 SM8

    Have you ever owned raw wedges before? You get raw spots like that after like 2-3 rounds. That is how they are supposed to wear.

    Vokey 55 SM8

    The issue is the 55 degree. 55 degree wedges aren't on the Vokey website and I don't think I've ever seen one before. It's more than that. The top of the 5 has a different shape than the top of the 6 so it's definitely a 5. You can compare in the listing. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Titleist-Vokey-SM8-60-55-50-46-Wedge-Set-Dynamic-Golf-S400-Raw-Finish-/115157658069?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 OP I would ask the seller where he got them from. Nothing shows fake but this is very odd.
  19. Titleist looks at it completely different than Bridgestone. The pro v1 is lower spinning than the x by quite a bit right now. It looks more like this. Pro v1- low driver, mid iron spin Pro v1x- lower driver, high iron Left dash- lowest driver, mid iron Left dot- low driver, low iron AVX- lowest driver, lowest iron I have a feeling we aren't going to get left dot/dash that we have now. The dash and AVX are due for an upgrade to the latest dimple design so we'll probably get an upgrade version of the dot as well.
  20. So I'm going to disagree with your MIT friend. This is coming from direct experience with optical and RF tracking systems. Optical systems are much more accurate for tracking specific information at short distances with clear lines of site. RF systems are much better are tracking objects over distance because the are not affected by most outside environmental factors, but the information will not be as precise. Basically cameras will always be best for getting actual spin and launch, while RF will be better for tracking overall flight.

    F1 fans?

    Tire durability won't really be effected. The big difference with be in suspension setups. F1 cars have been runing super stiff because the tire aborbs a lot of those bumps and track irregularities. With the smaller side wall the tire becomes much stiffer so the suspension has to be able to absorb more of the forces. Having a better mechanical setup is going to be much more important than it has been in the past.
  22. Yes, but what is your swing speed? If you were hitting a hybrid 5 iron you probably won't be able to get a 3 or 2 driving iron off the ground.
  23. There is already a thread going in the bags forum (see link at top of this section) https://forums.golfwrx.com/topic/1828464-titleist-2022-gearbag-catalog/
