  1. [quote name='ode1' timestamp='1302658123' post='3148276'] [quote name='TitleistFreek' timestamp='1302649138' post='3147751'] I want to know what all this talk about how the Penta is so durable??? I bought a dozen to try out in less than two weeks they ALL were shag balls. He are some photos of a ball played one round of 18 holes. I hit about 8 full wedge shots in this round today. [/quote] YIKES, what kind of wedges are you playing??? The jury is still out for me on the Penta. In NE Wisc. it's been fairly nice out, 50's+, but it's soggy, so it's hard to get a true sense on run out off

  3. The "launch" of a ball will be related to the "stickiness" of the cover. Most tour balls have soft sticky covers for a lot of spin. This is why the pros hit 7.5 - 8.5 degree loft drivers. You are going to get spin with a driver which is inevitable. If you are hitting it high check your ball position at setup, your loft, and when you release the club through the ball: these have more to do with why you would be hitting it high. Sounds like you need a hard cover ball like some of the mid-range callaway balls.
  4. I just want to know when is it going to stop, I used TM as an example because they are one of two brands which have the lowest lofts on their clubs, the other being Callaway. Also the reason I used them as an example is that this is all that they advertise, distance, distance, distance. For instance the Dustin Johnson commercial where he hits a TM 3 iron 270+ yards. Lets give a 6'4 guy with a swing speed of 120+ and a 15 degree iron! Give me a break!
  5. I have thought of that! I think I just might do that, it just might raise questions at the ol CC, ya know.
  6. my brand new Titleist 910D3 is 45" my 909 was 45" as well, my 704s are a degree hot but they are 6 years old. I just get annoyed with the smack talking rednecks with horrid swings I play with when they say i can hit my PW 150 yards! When in fact they can only hit it 120 on a good day with wind behind them with a 45 degree PW.
  7. I miss the magnetic headcovers of the last models. I am disappointed in the return to the sock style head covers. The 910 headcovers use a harder acrylic thread in the sock portion that is prone to scratch the head of the driver. I have written Titleist with my feedback. Anyone else agree, or have any alternatives to the stock headcovers?
  8. Am I the only one that can't stand Taylormade's approach to "longer distance". Lengthening shafts to a mile long and reducing loft throughout the bag. When will they run out of degrees? Will the next pitching wedge have 40 degrees of loft? This seems to be a cheap way to sell clubs to me. I used to love the brand, but cheesey marketing turned the brand into a cheap wh*re in my eyes. The current burner 2.0 PW is 44 degrees! That is the loft of my 9 iron..lol. Don't they know that this will cause confusion and less stable results for the guys that end up using these clubs? Get over yourselves
  9. Well I am in a very similar boat with you. I have swing speed of about 112-115, 165 ball speed average. I was fitted at my GolfHeadquarters in Chattanooga. They started me out with an Aldila RIP X, it turned out to be too stiff for me. Every swing with it ended up with a low exaggerated draw. Then we moved to a stiff project X, it was the same thing just less exaggerated. Then we moved to the Diamana 'Ahina Stiff. On my good strikes I was carrying the ball 270+ yards straight down the middle. I could have probably adjusted to the other shafts. But this one shaft fit my subconscious swing. I
