  1. These look great, which I'm not surprised as Mizuno very rarely disappoints. One thing I would like to see is a JPX driving iron or even 3 iron around 18 degrees. I'm sure they probably figure there isn't enough demand for it though.
  2. I realize you can't say much about this shaft (proto), but is there some new material or technology being used?
  3. That would stink if it takes even that long to try one.
  4. Another one who agrees. There is a real lack of 80+ gram shafts for fairway woods, especially among the major OEMs. If you are playing 115 to 130 gram iron shafts and then have to move down to 60 gram in your fairway wood, it is a huge tempo change.
  5. If a heat transfer decal that would be great. I'm not saying a sticker will keep me from trying them though, was just curious. It will be interesting to see how they feel compared to the regular project x, and also how they play. From what I've read and heard, each shaft is specifically designed for each individual iron.
  6. Thanks, I was just curious. Every shaft I've had where it is a sticker it starts rubbing against the bag when the club is taken out or put back in, and then the sticker eventually peels off.
  7. Those look great, I think they did an excellent job with them. Is the project X LS a sticker or is it like Nippon and painted on?
  8. Good video. Would have liked to see a higher spin player test it, as they mentioned.
  9. Great, thanks for the update. It seems like either fairway is a really good choice.
  10. Found this, fairly interesting.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKeZqWO3RZ8
  11. I have to think someone is going to have hit these sometime soon, and hopefully get some feedback.
  12. I assume your talking about the 125 wedge shaft, which don't come in any flex. I play the 125 wedge shaft in my 54 and 58, and probably the best specific wedge shaft I've played. I know many like the S400's, but I think these are better.
  13. Great, thanks. Pretty consistent, but would expect to see a little more spin from the Sim with the blue.
  14. Thanks, good to hear. What shafts are in each fairway wood?
  15. Agree. C tapers were fine when going after it, but were awful when trying to choke down or hit something softer. I don't mind the feel of X100 but don't like the ball flight. They seem to take off low but then spin up. Project X have been my most consistent shaft, although I'm currently playing Nippon 125. The Nippon are great feeling shafts, but I'm not sure I'm getting the same performance out of them as I did the project x.
  16. Gotcha. That does make sense. There was always the old opinion of people play shafts too stiff for them, but there are still many that need a very stiff shaft. To me this is the better c taper option, and also not having to deal with the tip issues; at least that is how it sounds.
  17. For some it might help with some swing issues, for me it will help because I have an aggressive transition (yes, maybe argue swing issue also). Even when I'm swinging well, I have always spun the ball a little more than I want and really have to fight to keep the ball down. If these help, why not. And even better if someone usually plays 125 and can play these in 120 that isn't bad either. More options help, and it isn't a c taper where the tips bend.
  18. That is a comparison I would like to hear about, as I am considering both of those fairway woods.
  19. I agree, if these are less harsh than the project x with less spin and launch, complete winner. Some don't like the feel of project x, but I don't mind them. You get something a little softer feeling almost like Nippon shafts and sounds great.
  20. Hopefully they will be at club fitters fairly soon to try and then available to purchase soon.
  21. The strange part is the "big" word might throw many off. It is actually about the same size and even smaller than many of the normal fairway woods that are available. It is just bigger than their "tour" model.
  22. I'm really curious about it also. The few online reviews were saying it was very hot and launched easily. I've read the big tour is supposed to be similar to the LTD fairway from 5 or 6 years ago.
  23. I'll be curious to hear how that turns out, as I've thought about the same thing. Just get the 3-iron, maybe put a 100-110 gram graphite shaft in it.
  24. I would add its fine to get fit there, just stick to your guns if something doesn't feel or look correct. If you think your getting just as good performance with a lower priced shaft and like it, speak out. I felt a little bit they were too concerned with lower spin and distance cause that is what most want. I just wanted more consistency and making sure they shafts I was playing were the right ones for me.
