  1. I've played a 44.5 inch driver for the past 15 years. I love that Cobra has a tour length driver at 44.5 inches, with changed out weights. The 2 gram weight was changed out to a 18 gram weight, so 16 grams added to a 44.5 inch driver. I am lefty, so I don't get to try out other peoples drivers, so I have no idea what it is like to play a longer driver. I have a TSi3 coming this week that was ordered at 44.5 inches and a swingweight of D2.
  2. I recently tested the TSi3 and the Sim 2 Max. I know this isn't an apples to apples low spin head comparison, but those were the 2 drivers I was interested in. The Titleist consistently spun around 2500 rpms for me on my bad swings. The center strikes were in the 2200 rpms range. My bad swings with the SIM 2 max were around 3200 rpms. This test was done with the same shafts. The Titleist felt better, sounded better, and was much more consistent for me. Strikes high and low on the face still had a decent ball flight with reasonable spin numbers. I think the pendulum on "low
  3. This will be the first stock shaft I’ve played in a driver in the past 10 years. I am very interested to see how the season goes. My club arrives on Friday, then I will get with my club fitter and get the final adjustments tuned in with the Titleist cog and head adjustments.
  4. Just thought I would share my experience today. I was looking for a new driver and tested the TSi3, Mizuno STz, Sim 2 Max. The TSi3 had the lowest spin of the 3 for me (averaged around 2500rpms) and felt and sound the best of the three. We then went through about 5-6 shafts (Ventus Black, Ventus Blue, Evo VI, GD, AV Raw Blue). I was surprised that the AV Raw Blue gave me the most consistent spin and dispersion. I have always been a shaft snob, and have made my way through most of the premium shafts, both Japanese and U.S. over the years. When I found out it was the stock option, I was su
  5. So I just got on one of my friends indoor simulators for about an hour. Everything I saw on the simulator confirmed what I felt early last month when I got out and played in 45° weather a few times. These feel fantastic at impact. Numbers look really good. The distances are comparable to my P790s which surprised me. I can’t wait to get these out on the course next month when I go on a golf trip.
  6. I don't think this problem is unique to Srixon. For anyone who actually checks their specs on new clubs when they come in, I think most of the companies are not that exact with their builds, and some are just sloppy.
  7. Ha ha. If it was a Hollywood project, then they could get special exemption from California COVID regulations.
  8. I have played a lot of different graphite shafts over the past 10 years. There are a lot of great options out there. I started with the Recoil Prototypes and liked them a lot. They had a very lively feel to them, but my dispersion wasn't great. I then went to the Accra i Tour iron shafts and was very impressed. Very solid tight feel with excellent dispersion. They felt like they took alittle extra effort to load these shafts. I then went to the Steelfibers. These are a unique shaft, in that there feel is very different to me, compared to most other graphite shafts. People either like
  9. I haven't had a lot of time with them, but I have the SF 95 stiff in my irons and the SF 110 stiff in my 54 and 60 degree wedge. I have enjoyed playing them but with limited practice and play time so far. I will look out for this issue with the 110's, but I am hoping it isn't an issue. My 60 degree is used around the greens and out of the bunkers, rarely out of the fairway. The 54 is used from 100 yards and in. I haven't noticed any issues so far. I am a big fan of the Steelfibers and like the idea of having my shafts be the same in my wedges as my irons. Sidenote, Aerotech S
  10. I have had to have elbow surgery for tendinitis. I really like the Aerotech steel fibers. Also like the Fuji pro tour spec iron shaft. Lots of great options these days in graphite. The steel fiber I’m using is the I-95 so a little lighter than what you’re looking for. Very sturdy shaft for the weight.
  11. I have the Glide 2.0's in 50 and 54 degrees and love them.
  12. Does Endo have a forging facility in Thailand?
  13. I don't think you will be disappointed.
  14. I go into my office just to pull out my zx7's and swing them. Snow on the ground here; not sure I can wait to hit these again. I have a golf trip coming up in 6 weeks, that will be the first time I get to hit them again. These irons are just beautiful and the feel at impact, from 2 rounds of play, is as good as any iron I have hit including Miura (maybe only second to the Epon AF-302).
