  1. Needs to be in good condition with no marks on crown.
  2. I see posts in here about people talking about certain heads being more likely to work with this shaft. I'm not an experienced club builder nor understand club design well. What I can tell you from my own experience of trying several heads with the shaft and finally settling on my PXG Proto head is its all about the visuals and the weighting of the driver for YOU. I kept finding low strikes on the heads with the other drivers and the PXG started that way until I brought up my SW back to D3 and magically I starting finding middle or slightly higher toe (which we all don't mind that
  3. He isn’t outside but @bryangolfis your guy. He is on his own and has the tools. He is building himself too.
  4. I bought the 505xx because my driver is normally around 117-122 at standard length. I have a few driver heads and I played with a few and started at the lighter swing weight. I struggled with face contact until I plugged my proto PXG head in and returned it to D3 by removing the single heavy weight and putting on a 5g lead stripe on it. I did not cut it and it plays at 46.5”. If I swing normal, I’ll get to the mid 120s in club head and will carry 315. If I close up the stance a bit and give it more I’ve seen 184 ball speed and over 331 carry. I’m playing Tue
  5. To be honest, I learned nothing from the video.
  6. I noticed that Matt from TXG was hitting the xx. My swing speeds fall in his range with a 45" driver (115 is out ot the gate, and after you give me more swings it will move up to 122 or so). I see their website says to get the x, but I know the XX exists. I'm planning to use this to play around with a longer driver. That means that likely club head speed would be higher. My swing is shorter and would be closer to Finau or Rahm. I typically hit 2-3 up on it.
  7. Bringing this thread up and back to life. I like tinkering and decided to follow the formula after building a 6 iron I really like. Just curious as I have found various calculations and not having any physics background. Is this calculation valid to some form? It makes sense at a basic level when you are comparing all the components in the way it does. I'm planning to build my set using it at 3/8 increments and solve for headweight and see what that requires from tip weights and lead tape.
  8. Not to hijack but I just started doing this and found it very easy and fun to tinker with. on a side note, I’m most fearful of starting with shaft blanks and not really knowing how much I should rely on puring or some form of correct orientation of the shaft? Does following a trim chart solve for at least consistent flex profile?
  9. So I am still at this playing with different configurations and building my own irons. I'm playing right now with a 6 iron and a 9 iron and after slowly adding lead tape to the 6 iron I started really liking the feel and dispersion. To my surprise it came in at D9 on my swing scale! I am also using a mid-size grip that weighs 63 grams, so it is also changing the formula around. I'm going to go back down the weight scale and see what results I get to confirm, but seems like having a 9i that is in the E's is ridiculous? How do you advise I continue? EDIT: I did go and reread the posts above, and
  10. @Valtiel I'm located in [email protected] Jones I trust the data from this user on another forum around the difference between Trackman and Quad: [FINAL RESULT] Trackman 4 VS GC2+HMT/GCQuad - Golf Simulator Forum He says that the club path will always show more open by about 1-3 degrees because the Quad has no way to measure the start point, but Trackman measures from the start of the swing. Face angle trackman calculates while the Quad directly measures it which he says means that Trackman shows about 1-3 degree more closed than Quad. I don't know for certain, but Quad is measuri
  11. Hi all - I've been a member for awhile and was fortunate lately to come into the possession of a QCQUAD. I'm about a scratch golfer, but never played in high school or college, other than 2 times a year when I was younger. I can be analytical when it comes to club data and love tinkering with clubs. I've been watching eBay for a good loft/lie machine to get into it more and soon here want to play with club making. Anyways, the concept of MOI matching is really interesting to me as I would like to make the effort feel equal in all of my swings no matter the length of iron. I read a few posts

Sounds a bit drastic, even the strongest tour pros aren't playing SW that high. I realized the club I really liked was actually D7 due to the midsize grip. It’s all an estimate and know they started life as D3. So 12G more in head
