  1. Hahah I have no idea what it is. The only thing I can guess is my natural iron ball flight is a draw with my miss being a hook, but the hook/draw seems to be less severe with the mizzy. Maybe it’s the lower offset?
  2. I have a few sets of irons. This year I rotated between two, Srixon 785 and mizuno mp4, same shafts, length, lie, sw, etc. I played 38 rounds on my home course, about equal rounds with each set. In all rounds on my home course with the mizzy my average index is 4.9. With 785, it’s 7.5. I also hit two more greens per round with the mizzy. I thought maybe it was due to coincidentally driving better in the rounds with the mizzy, but I actually hit 5 fairways per round with both. Yes, driving accuracy needs work. Putts per round were also about the same. Clearly the mizzy are better statistically for whatever reason. However, I keep going back to the 785 because I tell myself I have no business playing blades if there are all these tour pros that don’t. I go to the 785, shoot 80 or worse, get pissed, go back to the mizzy, shoot 75/76, tell myself that’s better but blades are for tiger, rory and adam, go back to the 785, rinse and repeat.
  3. Yes this distance is great which is why I would love to be able to find the setup to make it playable. I like that I hit it right to left since I hit driver left to right so I have options for different shape tee shots, but in it's current form, it's not simply a draw but more a 40 yard hook which isn't playable.
  4. Hello friends...I've been testing a SIM2 Rocket 13.5 as almost a mini driver/2-wood off the tee play. However, I've found it to be very hook biased, very hook. For reference, I have a 915f 15* set to A1 with a Diamana 80x untipped that I hit pretty straight. It's been in the bag for 6 years and I love it but looking for something just a little longer so have been experimenting with SIM2 Rocket. I started with Diamana DF 80TX and hooked the crap out of it. I even lowered the loft ie open the face all the way to lower, still the same. I've often read the Motore Speeder VC tour spec line is great shaft to mitigate the hook. I have had good success with the 8.8x VC tour specs shafts eliminating the hook in my hybrids, so I picked up a Motore Speeder 8.2x VC tour spec here. It's also tipped 0.75", so a pretty stout shaft. For reference, I'm no long-drive champ...driver ball speed typically mid-160mph, so if anything, this shaft should be too stout for me. Nevertheless, testing it the last couple of days, hitting very strong hooks with this setup, even lofting it down fully which should open the face 4*. I don't hit hooks like this with any other club. My driver ball flight is a fade with miss being right. Hybrid iron flight is slight draw with a miss left, but nothing close to what I've seen with this. My question is....have others found this SIM2 Rocket head to be hooked bias. What have others found?
  5. Hello friends...has anyone tried using an M2 driver weight in a Sim2 driver (front weight) or Sim2 fairway weight? I took the weight out of the sim2 fairway, it looked like the size thread of the m2 driver weight which I have some extras, so I screwed in the m2 weight and it seemed to fit. If it fits, any reason it wouldn't work or would cause damage when hit?
  6. Looking for an untipped 7x but would also consider untipped 6x or 6tx. Need it to play at least 45” and have a TaylorMade adapter.
  7. Yes course/slope rating is a key component, but even if one plays a course in which a 4 over indexes out to 4, the way the formula works is heavily skewed towards better rounds. Your average score over your last 20 rounds should be in the ballpark of the 50th percentile of those scores. The handicap system only accounts for the average index for the top 8 of those 20. The 8th best score of those top 8 scores will be better, or at least not worse, than your overall average. Again the cap is the average of those best 8, so essentially in a normal distribution of 20 scores, your cap would fall somewhat around your 4th or 5th best score overall...so 20th-25th percentile. Plus, the variability of the scores matters too. For example for arguments sake, a person who shoots 80 in all 20 rounds on the same course, and that 80 indexes out to 8, they would have an an average score of 80 and an 8 handicap. A person who shoots 75 half their 20 rounds which index to 3 and 85 the other half which index to 13, they too would have an average score of 80 but a handicap of 3. Most people think x cap means average score is x over par. Not even close. It’s usually a few strokes and more so if you play on high difficulty courses and there is high variability in your scores.
  8. Looking for a SIM2 8* or SIM2 max tour issue 8* head if you know the specs. Looking for very good condition.
  9. First up is a Titleist TSi3 8* driver head in great shape! Headcover included and was unused. Traded! Next is a Fujikura Ventus Blue 6x velocore driver shaft with Titleist adapter. Shaft is untipped and in amazing shape. It measures 44” uninstalled. $250 shipped. Could be interested in a trade for a Ventus Blue Velocore 7x driver shaft with a TM adapter. Next is a brand new in wrapper Vokey SM8 60* s grind. $old Next is are brand new 2021 TaylorMade TP5x. There are 6 full sleeves (18 balls). Full disclosure one of the balls in one of the sleeves I marked with a black dot but never hit. The other 17 have no markings and were also never hit. No logos or anything either. $old!
