  1. nice link - I checked it out and it is X stiff. was asking for a supplier of Long 48" Regular - I checked all of Ebay and they have all been cut down. So Like I say -- Shafts longer than 46" , probably not going to find much available,
  2. We had a 2 day 36 hole tourney this weekend. 65 players and I took 4th gross with a Quad Bogie on hole 17. Oh Well. But the Side Games we had made up for my potential loss with logging 2 KPs, 5 Deuces, 3 Gross Skins, for a total $565 cash. not bad for few hours of fun in the sun.
  3. I just looked at a few suppliers of the House of Forged Shafts and only one was 48" and it was X , XX ,XXX stiff - all others were 46" -- can you tell me where I can get a Regular 48" House of Forged??.. also seems they are pretty high priced.. I think I would go for a $250 Graphite Design shaft before House of Forged. that is if I were wanting to spend that much on a shaft. My 5 long shafted drivers all have shafts costing under $100 - and they perform beautifully Specially those from Grafalloy and Mitsubishi. Or better yet -- tell me a supplier who sells long Shafts
  4. Maybe Bryson does not need a 48" driver -- winning by 6 strokes. Wow!
  5. I did email the Top management of the golf association as I mentioned above.. so far no info. But I looked at the guys latest GHIN index - he is up 2 more strokes to a 9 handicap, he was a 7 when he fleeced all of us by 26 strokes.
  6. Probably not going to find much in the 48" range from most manufacturers it is 46" which nets out to about a 47" long driver . But you can easily extend one if you have an older graphite shaft you use as a donor shaft. use a piece of it about 3-4" long that fits snug in the butt end about 3" inside the good shaft. , rough it up with a knife or rough file removing most of the paint down to the graphite. Epoxy does not bond well to the glossy paint. then use another larger piece of the donor shaft to make a sleeve over that matching the OD of the good shaft. once all installed in the Hea
  7. the Prior I am speaking to is Chris Prior in Whistler BC -- has the factory there .. try their web site -- good stuff. go to Prior Snowboards.
  8. Since some of Y'all like jokes. A man who'd just died is delivered to a local mortuary wearing golf shorts and a new fancy collared shirt. The female blonde mortician asks the deceased's wife how she would like the body dressed. She points out that the man does look good in the shorts he is already wearing. The widow, however, says that she always thought her husband looked his best in blue, and that she wants him in a blue suit. She gives the Blonde mortician a blank check and says, 'I don't care what it costs, but please have my husband in a blue suit for the viewing.' The
  9. RE: to long to fit in trunk or in golf travel bag. to fit in the travel bag I take it out of the golf bag and pack it nicely along the side of the bag with the shaft inside a cardboard shipping tube. same for a small car - take it out of the bag.
  10. over the past three years things have changed in my swing and I am playing better so I dont really know how a 45" does . I have tested a few TM M6 drivers and Callaway Epic Flash. Same loft and close on shaft specs - and I hit the 48" driver of mine better , longer and very little dispersion, in fact my golf buds always comment -- another down the middle - dont you ever get bored with that?. Like mentioned above when I started long shafted drivers it was 3 years ago and I was a 12 handicap - now I am a 5.6. I think being long armed and tall at 6'3" helps with a 48 " shaft. if you look a
  11. I have not found that the case here having to use a softer shaft. What I have found is Torque values make a big difference. Shafts with high torque numbers have not done well in my experience with 48" shafted drivers. Ping driver heads are best suited for this big arc.
  12. Cool! the one I ride the most is 3rd from left - it is a custom made Prior 179 ... wonderful ride.
  13. Phunny thing is I have more snowboards than Drivers.
  14. don't know the flex at 48" compared to the same same at 45" - wish I had that nice piece of equipment - someday tho. Re: distance: I can only say mathematically if all other factors are equal it should increase my swing speed by about 5-6%. which should equate to about 12-14 yards per the swing speed chart. It took me about 1 year of experimenting with different shafts to find 3 that really work well for me. I used a friends LM a couple of times but most of the time it was on the course testing/ trying. .BTW 3 yr ago I was a 12 handicap - now I am a 5.6 - not too Shabby for a 73 yr old c
  15. In the 2nd video , HOW come it looks like his driver is a lot longer that usual short one he hits..??
