  1. Haha - no - not all. I just went the opposite direction with a new TSi3 / Tensei 1k 60TX combo and have put 100% of my focus there. The initial results were good - just lost focus for me. I should probably put the shafts up on BST - but still hope to get around to it again.
  2. I'm debating between these and the 1008s currently. Just bought some MMT 125TX and considering rebuilding a set. Also considering having BOS golf refinish them in copper...
  3. I completely disagree. As someone who was having trouble gaining weight with standard body building routines back in the day - I found that there were plans that worked significantly better than others (like Starting Strength), and successfully got much bigger and stronger for competitive basketball. Weight, rest, and reps were all absolutely key (3x5 was much more effective than 3x12, etc.). Having an app that helps to keep you on schedule and track progress will undoubtedly lead to better results, and from what I've seen from Shasho - he's done his research - he's
  4. Love it. The thing I'm going back and forth on is how each head will interact with the MMTs in terms of feel. I did another hour of testing 6 iron vs 6 iron today and the 1008s are a much firmer impact, while the 302s are much softer (though the 1008s have Oban CT-115s while the 302s have Modus 120s in them). I'm also debating getting BOS copper treatment on them since - why not. How has the MMT feel in your 57s? How was that different in your friends 302s?
  5. TXG Review is up. Their findings are similar to what's been posted in this thread. Somewhere between a Ventus Black and Blue. Best of both worlds for me - stable low / low with better feel. Kinda reminds me of the TZ5.
  6. Any reason why? Seems like you have some solid experience with the 120TX, and would love to get your thoughts. I've read through J13's thread, and would love to get your take. I prefer the shape of the 1008s as the 302s are a bit rounded. However the 1008s seem to be a bit higher and spin a touch more. Currently playing PX 6.0, but speed has increased quite a bit since being fitted (Driver is ~115 +/-3 mph). What's your experience been like?
  7. "Forever" may be relative They're on order already. I just can't quite decide which heads to put them in (or which BB&F ferrules to use) Part of me wants to get one of the sets done in 2-tone copper, but that gets a bit ridiculous and I've heard mixed things about the Golf Garage guy.
  8. I've been having some shoulder and wrist issues, and am now using that as an excuse to rebuild a set with the 125TX shafts I've wanted to try forever. The question is, which set should I rebuild? The options are: Miura 1008 Black Ox Epon AF-302 Miura 1957 Baby Blades Before everyone chimes in with "Baby Blades LDO" - I'd like to actually play this set for a while, and have been on a mission to lower the cap. While the BBs are a ton of fun, they're probably not the smartest option. I'm leaning towards the 302s, as I like the buttery softness, but
  9. Sorry - didn't notice that you'd actually converted. If you use the Flightscope optimizer: 115mph * 1.48 smash = ~170 mph ball speed > 14 deg launch / 2400 spin / 100 ft above sea level = 285 yard carry. Winter conditions may fly less. Where I play - you get ZERO roll. Take into account that Arccos averages are pure averages - meaning they include all drives - even the ones that hit a tree and go 200 (which is one of my biggest gripes with the system). Seems just fine to me.
  10. I was gonna say - that's extremely cheap for SF.
  11. Did you miss Knudson's post or do you have additional questions about how the Ventus Black stacks up against the 1k? I've played both and think Knudson was 100% spot on. The 1k 60TX feels smoother / softer / better and seems to launch a little higher than the VB 6X for me. That said, it's also playing .75" or so longer at the moment, and my experience is with the 1k in a TSi3 versus the VB in a Mavrik TD. Not apples to apples, but the 1k has reduced any desire I had to go back to the Ventus Black. That said, it's been cold and windy, and I've been considering getting
  12. So it's been a hectic couple weeks with work, but finally got out to give it a couple swings. Truth be told, I only swung it 5 or 10 times as I didn't have much time, and had a brand new TSi3 w/ Tensei White 1k TX I wanted to get some swings in with before playing this weekend. I'll give it a more proper go when I have a bit more time, but the C. Kua did not feel nearly as good as the AF. It definitely isn't as flexible on the waggle test, and felt a bit firmer all around. The results were tough to decipher. It was a high, straight flight as you'd expect, but in the
  13. As I said before, I'm a bit jealous. Mine is built to 46.5 and I definitely would have gone with 50 if I realized it was a thing. Very interested to hear how it comes out!
  14. Hit my 60TX in my new TSi3 head today (A1 / T2). Very stable combo. Seems to take the BIG left miss out for me as I didn't have a single snap hook through about 100 shots. The shots I did miss left were pulled, but did not hook which was fantastic. Looking forward to taking it out on the course this weekend and seeing how it performs.
