  1. Interesting, these clearly have a TPE insert of some type for the 7i and up at least. But the T100 does not.
  2. Dump the 62, keep the longer club. Or go 50/55/60 if you really want to. No one needs >60. Even Phil, king of Phlop, master of short game, dropped his 64PM grind in the last bunch of tournaments.
  3. What are the lofts of the 4 wedges. what length courses/tees do you play? what type of par 3s do you face?
  4. 3 wood (15*), 2H (17*), 4H (22*).
  5. For everyone who asked about weights, the Ping head alone is 3g heavier (200g vs 197, exclusive of adapter), but its the same shaft and length. The Ping is 318-319g and the TM is 314-315 - I don't know what this means really.. For comparison my 3W is like 342, 5W. is 352, and 4H is 377. Hmm interesting...
  6. FWIW, to close this out, I had my old driver and new driver SW measured. Old D5. New D2. And there it is.. I really like heavier feeling clubs so I don't cast my hands and search for the head.
  7. Totally fair. BUT.. in my defense.. I wasn't hitting my driver that well BEFORE putting in a purchase order. Not even close to that. Then something clicked and it was magic. But the new driver was in the mail by then... If I'd KNOWN that I was going to smoke my old driver, I never would have even considered a new one haha *also I live in Denver, so 350 with roll here is like 320 at sea level, so not as impressive, but for me is still just awesome!*
  8. Yea, my swing has been a bit off the last few weeks as I'm working through some things I was working on during some lessons (have lesson mind going on.. most dangerous time in golf..). but I should have found some feel by now, at least some consistency, and its still not there. ill go back to try out my Ping and see if good feels come back.
  9. How long do you give a new club before going back to what it replaced? I bought a SIM2 with my shaft a few weeks ago and had it delivered and have played about 4-5 rounds with it, and just have not struck it nearly as well as the Ping G400LST that it was replacing. I was hitting my driver as well as I have ever hit it, a few days hitting multiple 340-350 yard drives and getting like 70-80% FIR, which is unheard of for me. Since trying the new driver, I'm just not hitting anything on the course nearly as well. It may be a swing weight thing or a look at address or confidence thing, but how many rounds do you give a new club before ditching it?
  10. Have the VA Slay in 75 stiff in my fairway woods and 85 stiff in hybrid. LOVE the shafts. Considering just getting the Slay for my driver too, but a swing speed chart I saw (and emails to the founder of the company) lead me toward X flex in the driver. The swing speed chart I saw and posted below said 75S is perfect for SS of 100mph or so, which is what my 3W is. But the recommended SS for 65S is 90-105, whereas the 65X may be better for 100-115. Since my driver is about 108 or so, I figure I'd just go the X? Or what effect does tipping have on the flex of the shaft? I don't really have an option to get fit anywhere for this speed/flex shaft, since a lot of people don't try it in X flex at the places I've tried it.. For both this shaft, but really in general, do you 1) have the same shaft in your driver and FW, 2) just drop the 10g but keep the flex the same or 3) increase flex in the driver?
  11. they all have twist face. its called roll and bulge. taylormade just named it, but every driver has that, FYI.
  12. So you've been fit for iron shafts. Then a few years go by. You swing around the same speed, but start to look around the landscape. Your shafts are still available, no reason really to change, but new things can be "interesting." Do you consider changing iron shafts? Or is it more once you've found one, you stick with it?
  13. Bernhard is playing clubs from 10 years ago. Hideki has like 4 different versions of the same shaft to test each week. Huge variation - but they're all looking for a bit more distance or bit more control. They're looking for any advantage equipment can give.
  14. Been gaming the Slay in my Fairway woods and hybrids for the past few years - I LOVE the shaft. I haven't been re-fit in a while but for me they are super easy to elevate and find center every time. I have the Drago in my driver for a bit less spin. Their shafts just feel better than the standard Project X or Aldila or whatever else you find with your usual pairings of shafts, for me. They keep that smoothness with stability that is just great.
