  1. Guys- I'm a long-time puller of arms and OTT swinger. Don't have the Planemate yet--but will when they come out in 2020. When i do attempt to rotate correctly, I feel like there is no swing speed. I feel like the butt of the club is attached to my belly. Even turning as fast as I am able, my core only moves so fast. I know this could be a thread of its own, but would value from guys using Planemate. Where does the speed come from? Do the arms "let it rip" at some point? When I do get disconnected, I hit weak swipes or pulls. I know this is the key to a proper swing (and I h
  2. They had a good run. They are both in their 70s---time to move on. Not surprising.

  6. Shaft question guys: (Or TM folks if reading this thread:) I currently play Nippon NS Pro 950s; They are an option for the regular P790s. Nippon is updating the shaft with a new version, called, appropriately enough, the NEO. NEO is stock in the P790 Ti. Do we think TM will allow me to order the P790 with the NEO (I'll pay an up charge). It would be silly to me to buy new irons with shafts that are essentially being replaced,
  7. I remember when the adage was (for amateurs/handicappers) "if you want to score well, leave your driver in the trunk". Today my driver is my most forgiving, and my most reliable club. Technology works. The issue for the Tours is -- kind of like the current ball and HR explosion in baseball -- is it good tv and for ratings? That is a big factor that has to be balanced against competitive issues.

Noted that the 19 P790s steel shafts are .25 longer than the 17 version. Did acknowledge TM's thinner face and more tungsten composition. I note that the offset difference is really small: --1-2 mm and only in the 4-6i. From 7 on offset is the same between the 17 and 19 version. (I don't know if I would be able to discern this, particularly as I go down to the 5i only.) > >
  9. Rick Shiels comparison to 17 P790: Bottom line: He loves them, but found no difference in performance between models. Noted that the 19 P790s steel shafts are .25 longer than the 17 version.

From 7 on offset is the same between the 17 and 19 version. (I don't know if I would be able to discern this, particularly as I go down to the 5i only.) Shiels view: they kept a good thing good. A 24% price increase is material.
  10. He does offer a player's perspective, I'll give him that. But I find his references often dated, occasionally bizarre, and in general perceive him as weird. I don't think he does his homework either (in this regard I refer to his work on Fox calling women's golf). For a player's perspective, I like Brad Faxon much more.
  11. Yes as to the lofts. I remember a designer saying the goal was a 7i that launched as high as a 7, carried like a 6, and was as easy to hit as an 8. The tech balances the lofts to achieve the desired launch, height, spin, and distance. Shaft of course factors in as well.
