  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 appre
  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 th
  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
  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?
  13. I've been able to play one round with it, and while I was far from my sharpest the ball did show its quality when I was able to get out of its way. Not gonna oversell it here, but will say it's well worth giving an opportunity to be your ball of choice for this coming season. I saw enough from it to say it's quite likely that I'll be switching to it, but of course others may experience it differently. Mr. Finley is right that most of the Callaway staff play the X ball that can be found in your pro shop in the black box. They are, however, playing on greens with firmness and speed that th
  14. OK, that helps. Do you struggle with shafts that feel more active or "kicky"?
  15. Two VERY different shaft profiles. Pro Orange is quite soft in the handle but very stiff in the mid and tip while the RDX blue is stiffer in the handle while being quite soft in the mid but goes back to stiff in the tip. There are of course exceptions to every trend, but I would guess that in a fairway wood the RDX Blue might be more what you're looking for. What shafts have you got on well with in driver and fairway wood in the past?
  16. The Trip Diamond heads have been so popular because they give the players using them the neutral/fade bias they need without the knuckleball that they don't. There's also differences in their shaping that tend to make them appealing, but that's not really what we're talking about here. "Silly low" spin isn't wanted by high level players (and SHOULDN'T be wanted by players of any level that want a driver that's going to allow them to score their best) for a multitude of reasons. 1. Top level players' strike patterns are tight enough and they swing fast enough that they don't need
  17. Yes, but the differences in directional bias hold true.
  18. Instead of thinking about differences in spin from one OEM's driver model to the next (which are subtle to the point of being inconsequential for most players anyway), the better way to think of them from a fitting perspective is differences in their directional bias. For example, in last year's Callaway line the Max was the most draw biased, the standard Mavrik had a more subtle draw bias, while the SZ was the most neutral/fade biased. That paradigm holds true for every major OEM's line to one degree or another.
  19. That's quite possible. I've inquired everywhere I can think of for an EI curve on both the Mid and Low and have gotten nowhere.
  20. It's not close to the Tensei White because it's not designed to be that. Two very different profiles designed to be optimal for different swing types. Did you test drive the MMT before buying?
  21. The low launch version of this shaft will likely be what you describe (think HZRDUS T1100 and Hulk PVD but with different raw materials), but agree that the Mid version found in the Epic woods likely is more of a "soft mid" design not unlike Smoke Yellow just executed with different raw materials.
