  1. The average player may not be able to notice a difference between the VeloCore and non-VeloCore models when swinging them, but they should notice a difference in their results.
  2. I have now had the chance to hit the VeloCore and non-VeloCore Ventus 5-S and 6-R shafts and there is no comparison to me. The VeloCore tightens up the dispersion much more than the no-VeloCore version. I am 60 years old and am sticking with the 6-R.
  3. My drives (and scores) have improved considerably after moving to a Ventus shaft in my driver... and now to a Sim Max2 head. As others stated, knowing it's going straight allows me to swing more freely.
  4. I am playing the new Cleveland ZipCore wedges in 56 and 60 and have been very pleased with them. I used Cleveland RTX-3 prior to these and couldn't find anything I was happy with in between the two Cleveland models after trying many of them.
  5. I have been playing these shafts for 5-6 years now. I self-fitted into them and then went for a fitting (at Club Champion) and they confirmed I had selected the best shaft for my swing, swing speed, and desired flight pattern. I love them as when I really go at it, they remain true to form and the ball just goes and goes. My distances are very consistent under normal swing conditions and I have great stopping power on the green. I have them installed in 2017 TaylorMade M1 heads at D3 swingweight through the set. Driver swing speed is 90-92 and I play the 950s in stiff flex.
  6. I remind my group that we don't like slow play, so we better pick it up as we are falling behind. It generally works for the group - less so when an individual player is the lone offender.
  7. My driver is D3 swingwieght and my swing speed tops out around 91-92... at least it did last weekend when I went to Edwin Watts golf shop after playing 18 in the morning.
  8. Me too. Their fee structure is really tilted in their favor for what little they provide.
  9. The only thing I can see is the white lettering may be slightly out of alignment. The cog looks fine otherwise. It's a mechanical fit that adjusts the head in relationship to the shaft, so I would only be worried if the cog didn't fit together versus what can be seen in these pictures.
  10. 1. Atlanta, GA 2. 17.3 3. ZX5 3. Yes, I play twice a week 4. 2017 TaylorMade M1 5-AW, Nippon 950GH stiff, all at D3 swing weight 5. Great looking, but also forgiving for those of us who need it 6. I agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos.
  11. Agreed. That's an example of bad math on my part... It should have been: 7 - 190 8 - 175 9 - 160 P - 145 A - 130
  12. Project X steel shafts are marketed as stout, low spin, low trajectory shafts whereas the KBS C-Taper Lite shafts have a firm tip and soft butt designed for mid-high trajectory with controlled spin. So you are basically comparing an apple and an orange. For whatever reason, PX shafts don't feel good to me (or produce better results in fittings). Several other shaft brands and models were better fitted for my swing.
  13. There are so many newer irons that have a blade-like look, but with technology baked in that will help most people's game. Examples include Mizuno HMB and TaylorMade P-770 and P-790 irons. If you can, you really should go for a fitting and try a number of different club and shaft combinations.
