  1. Awesome giveaway. I'd love to rip my longest drive ever this year using an S flex 60 weight
  2. Hit a few at a demo day, now I understand the term sweet spot - feels so nice when you connect
  3. [quote name='russc' timestamp='1357868750' post='6207033'] [quote name='preny' timestamp='1357850376' post='6205285'] Getting back into golf after a very long time off. Went to the range to wake up the golf muscles (sore already from not a very large bucket...) Anyway, I was also playing with my GoPro video camera on high speed. I plan to go record some 9-3 drills in a few days when my back isn't so sore, but any suggestions on what to work on based on this video?

  4. [quote name='naj959' timestamp='1357852023' post='6205419'] Preny, There is some arm run-off, an over the top move and a flip at the bottom. I think your head moves out ahead of the ball in transition and your spine starts leaning towards the target at the top of your swing. By the time your hands reach hip high in the downswing your starting to throw away your lag. Hips look a little too level. This is what I see with my very untrained eye so take it for what its worth lol. I have quite a few of the same issues so I feel your pain lol. I to suffer from lower back pain at the ripe old age o

  6. Is it just me or is Tiger launching knucklefades today?
  7. Aldila shows a launch and spin graph on their website: http://www.aldila.com/custom-fitting/guide/
  8. IMO that would, especially for you, be the deep turn over the hip. (I think those are Slicefixer's emphases). This rotation (vs sway) is, in my opinion, unnatural for many golfers not because it is more natural to rock than to rotate (great athletes in baseball, tennis etc don't use lateral motion as a crutch any more than golfers) but because of this all-too-common hip immobility - a classic symptom of "desk jockey syndrome". Sitting perched at a keyboard 4-10 hours a day is not the type of stress our bodies have evolved to excel at. The result is an imbalance due to a weak posterior musc
  9. [quote name='QMany' timestamp='1335215407' post='4775782'] This swing is known to be difficult because of the requisite athleticism and flexibility required. I am very athletic but one of the most inflexible persons I know. What certain parts of the body are this swing most demanding from a flexibility standpoint? [/quote] You shouldn't really narrow it down too much, but if you're going to focus on anything, maximize the mobility around the ball-joints (shoulders and hips). These are where big muscle action turns into useable motion. Tightness in the shoulders and upper back will make
  10. I game the 20.5* and the 23* Mashie hybrids (2011 Tour version - smaller head, 83g shaft) and the gaps are no issue for me. I did shorten the 23* shaft 1/4" and it plays quite nicely between the 20.5* and my JPX-800 Pro 5i. Hope that helps. If you're having gap problems but love the clubs, you could try using a Tour model as a 4h and the normal 3h. I just love the small head and the lower launch of the 83g shaft on the Tour Mashie version personally. I actually considered putting a steel shaft in the 4h, but on the course my gaps were never a problem and the 83g Miyazaki is too cool.
  11. The ZL's face is really great for those of us who can't the bullseye every time. One note: The stock Cobra "Voodoo" in that club is not the same as the aftermarket Aldila Voodoo. It is actually much higher launch and somewhat higher spin than the aftermarket. It does bomb the ball a mile when you catch it right (I got a mid-high draw 285 total when I caught it right), but I played it in S-flex for half a season and it felt super whippy, even when I didn't step on it - I didn't achieve very good dispersion and started rope hooking whenever I went for distance. I ended up reshafting to a PX
  12. I broke the shaft on my 17* CLEVELAND LAUNCHER FL FAIRWAY and I'm trying to decide on what shaft to try in the head next. I liked playing it before, but wouldn't mind a little more control and I sometimes got the hooks with the lightweight Miyazaki. Been thinking something affordable like VS Proto or UST Avixcore or V2 would be useful. Anyone have any tips or experiences shafting this fairway head? Control and not missing left are my main goals. Thanks.
