  1. Trust me, this has been a LONG time in coming. Seen many luminary members of this community slip away and always decided to press on, but the cameI's back has taken its last straw. I know all about the Ignore User function, thing is when you use it often enough you start to wonder why you're bothering in the first place. I appreciate your kind words and wish you the best, though. So how about it, @pga43, can a member who's maintained good standing and contributed heavily to the forum for a decade have that courtesy granted? No hard feelings, it's just long past time to be done. Really appreciated your hustle to bring the Tour pictures to us year after year. If I'm asking too much, so be it. Cheers!
  2. I know, but I’d request that content posted be wiped as well.
  3. I’d like my account deleted to the Max extent possible. Don’t need the annoyance of trying to impart good sense to forum hacks and keyboard flexers. How can we make this happen in an expeditious manner?
  4. I know Deschambeau has been pushing them to think outside the box in designing a ball suited to him, but from what I understand his requests were pretty outlandish.
  5. Best not to draw conclusions from separate tests conducted with a bunch of time in between. They’ve said they plan to test them back to back same day which should provide a better picture of what’s on offer.
  6. I tested it only briefly because that's all the time needed to see the "Hidden Technology" for what it is. This is pretty much what I expected. I'm not the one who paid $800 dollars for a shaft with about as much stability as the pasta my kids ate for dinner and yet I am the one who's nuts? OK... The only thing worse than coming to the realization that you've been sold a bill of goods is never actually coming to that realization when it happens because that pretty much guarantees that it will happen again. 15 years ago I got sucked into the whole BSG racket and the snake oil that "BigHitter" Todd was selling. I even ardently defended BSG when others would rightly point out what a fraudulent charlatan he was and how badly his business was robbing people. I had classic Stockholm Syndrome, but did eventually see the light and there's plenty of parallels between that and this whole AutoFlex thing. Market new/mysterious/niche product, make it available in bright colors, make a bunch of dubious claims about the technology and performance, charge a premium for it all etc. etc. It's the same business model, same shaky ethics, same neon colored fairy dust, and same true believers financing it. It's your game and your money so as the Stranger in The Big Lebowski says, "OK Dude, have it your way."
  7. I tested it...briefly, and my impressions of it are pretty much identical to what Russ found. This thing is a complete scam. If you buy one of these, you're paying through the nose for what amounts to Po the Panda's Secret Ingredient Soup. Remember what the secret ingredient was? NOTHING! When people ask me about AutoFlex, my response is pretty much this: "Never has a shaft that costs so much felt so cheap. Why would you pay someone $800 for a shaft and then have them tell you to change your perfectly functional golf swing to make that $800 shaft remotely usable? You pay the shaft company to engineer a product that gets out of the way and lets you play your best golf with the swing you have, not the other way around. If you want to experiment with that concept, here's a RCH 45 A flex shaft from our Bertha 21 driver and if you love it you can pick one up for at least $700 dollars less than that pink Korean Snake Oil garbage."
  8. Based on what I saw today, the XLS may be Callaway’s best ball to date. You might say that's a pretty low bar, but the current CSX in the black box was a massive step in the right direction. If you’ve been playing TP5X or Left Dash V1X, you need to give this ball a chance. XLS has all the performance attributes of those with perhaps a bit less click to its feel.
  9. I finally heard back from Project X on Instagram about the iM10. They said it has much in common from an EI curve standpoint with the T800 that was in the original Epic woods. Other comparison they gave was a slightly more active tipped HZRDUS Red.
  10. Expect availability around Masters time, along with the TCB iron and Trip Diamond driver.
  11. Two other courses of action that I'd be much more comfortable recommending: 1. Stick with Pro Orange in your FW but go to more of a 3HL or 4 wood type of loft and then loft it down to get the face angle you like seeing in the FW you already have. 2. If you'd rather go the shaft change route, try something like Tensei Pro White which is may give you what you want while maintaining a fee more similar to Pro Orange.
  12. Not saying conclusively that RDX Blue wouldn't give you what you're looking for in 3 wood, but it's so different from Pro Orange that I'd be very reluctant to say "yeah you need to run out right now and try it." What loft on your 3 wood?
