  1. [quote name='chillr710' timestamp='1399649700' post='9263509'] Hi all I'm a shocker! Lucky I'm not married!!!!! I'm from Melbourne Aust, recently bought a set of new tour pref irons from the states 3i CB 4i MC 5-PW MB all KBS Tour Stiff. Been about 3 weeks now I'm getting impatient. Went to a PING demo the other night. Hit the S55 with the KBS tour. Shaft felt great. Numbers matched nicely. It was a perfectly still night though. Anyway after watching a heap of YouTube clips and reading reviews. Had a quick look on eBay and there was a set on S55 irons black dot. All stock with DGS300 shafts which I like a lot too. Bought em!!!!! I'll have them early next week! Big annual 4bbb tourney next weekend. Both irons will land the same time I bet! Haha what the hell how will I choose! I really think the Pings will be nice for me! I think I'll leave the TMs wrapped up and sell new. Ohh dear. S55. Who loves??.... Should be that little bit of added forgiveness and stability through the mid irons in the S55 but very blade like performance. Excited. But I'm still a silly boy [/quote] You sir, are my idol.
  2. Buffalo Golf Course in PA, about 30 miles north of downtown Pittsburgh. Always in good shape and flat. Youngstown/Warren Ohio has some great golf courses too.
  3. I had a SLDR driver, of course HAD to have it, 10.5 stiff, didn't really like it. I got the Biocell + and love it. My clubhead speed is about 100, I don't have any launch monitor numbers but on the course the Biocell + is more forgiving and longer. The only strange thing is I feel like I need to choke up about 1 1/2 inches on the Biocell+ to feel comfortable. My handicap is 3, I'm only 5'6" but I have never felt the the need to choke up on any other drivers. Played a Titleist D3 most of last year. I have the Biocell driver also.
  4. All I know is that this post makes me feel a lot better cause I spend all winter doing the same thing.
  5. I may just order one. I already have the Bio Cell and Bio Cell +, might as well go for the trifecta.
  6. Anyone hit this club yet? I've read all about the spin rate, fade settings, 440 cc head but has anyone actually hit it yet, either inside or outside? And if so, opinions, comparisons?
  7. I've put my Cobra ZL Encore, 9.5 stiff stock shaft, against the following drivers: TaylorMade SLDR 10.5 stiff Ping G25 9.5 stiff Ahina 60 Titleist 913 D3 9.5 stiff AD-DI6 Titleist 913 D2 9.5 stiff RIP Alpha 60 Cobra Bio Cell + stiff, set at 10.5 TaylorMade RBZ 9.5 stiff Ahina 60 And it STILL is the longest and the STRAIGHTEST. My clubhead speed is right around 100, very slight descending angle of attack, fairly quick tempo, handicap 3. With all the new technology, I'm very surprised at this. A very close second was the Titleist 913 D2. I'm still going to test the Cobra Bio Cell. Anyone else still loving the ZL Encore?
  8. Thanks to all for the great replies! Nobody has mentioned the Apex, I looked at them in Golf Galaxy and they looked like fairly low offset. I know these aren't the most forgiving, but what about the Cobra Amp Cell Pro? Too blade-like?
  9. I'm assuming he played the same tees as Rory, right?
  10. [quote name='Forged4ever1' timestamp='1397356453' post='9077391'] In '10-11, he was Titleist metals and Ping irons. He's obviously gone all Titleist. Fairway & Greens My Friends, Richard [/quote] Thanks also! I have a friend who is a +1 and he can play anything, but I'm always curious as to what he's playing.
  11. [quote name='tbrolltide14' timestamp='1397355637' post='9077315'] At the range this morning it looked like he had a 913d? driver 910f 3 wood 2 913hs I don't know the loft 4-pw ap2 irons Wedges ? Putter scotty Cameron Newport fastback This could be wrong but this is just what I saw [/quote] Thanks!
  12. Have you heard about this guy? Holds the course record of 61 from the member tees at Augusta National, beat Rory by 1 stroke today. I know, I know, its the Indian not the arrows, but still wondering what a guy like this has in the bag. Anybody know?
  13. I figured someone would say J40 dual pocket cavity, great midsize irons with low offset, I've looked at them. Are the Pings just as forgiving? I haven't hit them.
  14. Title says it all. I'm tired of missing greens! Any ideas? I'm playing Srixon ZTX 2 irons now. 3.4 index
  15. I play pxi 6.0 in my irons and really like them. I would call them a mid trajectory ball flight, definitely feel softer than project x 6.0. I havd also played the Dynalite Gold XP shaft and it is very similar ball flight with a little different feel, if that makes sense. I found the dispersion to be pretty good with the pxi. I also really like the Nippon Pro Modus 120 stiff shaft. I have 2 sets of Srixon ZTX 2 irons, one with pxi and one with the Nippons. Both play pretty similar.
  16. I was looking for a new shaft for my G25, and the Ahina fit the bill. Also, I really don't understand the "attack" posts when someone asks a question. I've seen it before on here and I don't get it.
  17. [quote name='misplacedtexan83' timestamp='1394496140' post='8843235'] We'll I hit down on the ball -2 to -4 degrees so the extra loft will even it out. My anser was a 10.5 and the i25 will be too just set at plus. My spin was around 2200 but my launch was actually opt. compare to me hitting low balls. So, I will have to adjust the eye test of the flight but where I was landing the balls were longer then I usually was on the range but just look high to me. This is why I'm glad I got fitted outside so I could see the ball flight but have the numbers as we'll. [/quote] That makes a lot of sense, being fitted outside I mean. No matter how accurate launch monitors are, nothing compares to hitting balls outside.
  18. [quote name='misplacedtexan83' timestamp='1394494305' post='8843005'] [quote name='swaldron' timestamp='1394493327' post='8842885'] I've thought about taking the Titleist adapter off the DI-6 but I really like that combo, might go back to it, might sell it, who knows. I think I'm leaning towards the Ahina or the Miyazaki Kusala Black. I'm also wondering if I should try a 70 gram Ahina stiff. I've only tried one X flex driver shaft, NV 55 and I liked it, but it was in an RBZ head. I know the Anser is much lower spinning, but when I tried it, it was ok, didn't really compare to the G25 which is so easy to hit its like cheating. I wish I had an i25 but that will probably happen later this summer. [/quote] The Ahina 70x was a good shaft in my old Anser and I loved the combo. However, I am moving onto the i25 for forgivness and low spin. [/quote] No concerns about 11* being too much loft?
  19. Yes, I have the G25 set in the (-) setting. Also, the weather where I live is just starting to warm up so I haven't had much time on the range.

  21. Sorry, yes the RIP is the Alpha. My concern is that by reducing the spin, I don't want to reduce the trajectory too much.
  22. Ok, here's the deal. I picked up a G25 driver, 9.5 with stock tour-stiff shaft. I like it, but it goes a little high with a little too much spin, in the low 3000's. I have the following shafts that I could put in, all are stiff flex, untipped: Diamana Kai'Li 60 Diamana Ahina 60 Aldila RIP 60 Miyazaki Black 61 Miyazaki JDL 6 I realize this is subjective, but I'm asking for your individual opinion. I'm not going to put an adapter on each shaft. -A little about me, I'm 47, have a quick tempo, Hcp index 3.7, driver clubhead speed 105. Thanks in advance for any info. Obviously, from all these shafts I've collected I have a problem! My current favorite driver is a Titleist 913 D3, 9.5 with stiff AD-DI6.
  23. Anyone hit these 2 fairway woods side by side for comparison? Height, distance, feel, weight?
  24. I have not liked irons in the past with too much offset, but after hitting the Apex irons yesterday, along with the Apex Pro's, I'm looking at 2 sets for 2014, the Apex (non Pro) and the MP54's. I personally liked the Apex alot. For what its worth, my handicap is 2.
