  1. Are you willing to split the head and shaft? If yes please PM me the price for the head only shipped to 45243
  2. Was the TM R510TP until Cobra Bio Cell + blew it away. The head + the Ozik 6Q3 shaft are a beautiful match for my swing.
  3. My daughter's driver ss is approx 85 mph and she does well with the Tensei Orange in R flex in a Ping G400 max head. It ballooned too much for me...however every shot was straight. My driver numbers are - 102 mph SS / 14* launch / 2504 spin. I game a G410 9* head and tried these shafts- 1. Tour 65 S - Mid launch, good distance and stability. However everything was average and the feel was a bit harsh. Generally straight to slight cut. 2. Matrix Red Tie 7Q3 S - Mid launch, great distance, super stable and very smooth, small cut 3. Aldila VS Proto 70g S - Mid Launch, good distance but was missing it both ways 4. Fuji Fuel 60g S - Low to mid launch, great distance, extremely stable w a kick and consistent direction (straight to very slight cuts). What really surprised me was how smooth it felt. #4 is my gamer shaft and #2 will be backup for days when I need a bit more swing weight to control my rhythm.
  4. I recently switched from MP-32's to the MP-67's. The transition was smooth and the 67's are amazing, the feel is close to or even slightly better vs the 32's. By the way, I use the Projex X 6.0 flighted shafts in both. Another set worth considering are the Bridgestone cavity backs, I have the j33's as my backup set and they too are terrific. They have a bit 'click' feel as compared to the Mizuno's
  5. A few months ago I did an extensive LM test at local fitter with an outdoor driving range (so that we could see the actual ball flight). We used range balls so please take the conclusions based on that variable. I saw at best + 2~ 5 yards of distance gain on average relative to my gamer. I was all set to spend money to a new driver but the fitter dissuaded me (I am sure he was chided by his boss). My gamer driver swing numbers (averages): ball speed: 156.3 mph, launch angle: 14 deg, spin rate: 2500 rpm, carry: 263.3 yd Gamer: Cobra Bio Cell + with stock Matrix s flex shaft Drivers Tested: Mavrik reg, G410 Plus, G410 LST with some of the stock shaft options. Only driver that offered enough statistical differentiation to my gamer was the G410 LST...approx 250~325 rpm less in backspin. No difference in carry distance but likely more roll out. However roll out is also dependent on the softness of the fairways, any slope on the landing region etc..
  6. This year has been a disappointment for my game. Limited practice (due to baby) lead to some of my highest scores. So bad that I have decided to get rid of all my sticks and take a sabbatical over the winter. Come spring if the desire is still there, I may buy a new set. Anyway, here is the first of my sales...All PRICES ARE PER THE PGA USED CLUB GUIDE. Best offers are encouraged. Prices incl. shipping CONUS. US only Taylormade R510 TP (10.5*), Fuji Speeder 757 R Flex, 45in, Std grip, non TP HC. Hard to find in this loft / R flex, great combo for smooth swingers.

They are filled in with a sharpie. - $69...drop to $60 Taylormade Burner 3W (15*), 43in, Aldila NV75 R flex, Mid grip, HC. In great shape except there are a couple of 1in long scratches on the crown near to the shaft which are in the clearcoat only. Not visible at address but can see them close up.

    Mizuno Wedges

    [quote name='sbguard9' timestamp='1290655041' post='2807714'] In the wedge discussion, it seems like mizuno is almost never mentioned. Why? The new Mp T-11's look pretty sweet! So what's the deal? It's either these or the Tour-s for me... [/quote] Great wedges with un-paralled feel. I have played them right from the start, their C grind works great with my swing. Almost automatic from the bunkers, whats not to love?
  8. MG 1977, Can you comment on the launch with the Mizuno. I was thinking of getting one but cannot locate a retailer in the area who has one to try out. My current gamer is the Bridgestone J33R 9.5* which gives me a nice mid boring trajectory. In your experience is the Mizuno head higher launch?
  9. I used to bag the MP600, 10.5* last year but sold it due to just one reason - the sound when nutted was pretty 'clanky' for the lack of a better word. Everything else about the club was great. I replaced it with a 9015D & J33R. My distance between the 3 drivers has been the same (remember the average # is important for comparisons...not one freak long or short drive). I find it funny that folks always talk about how much hotter one club head is over the other. Once you are at max COR (which is the case for all drivers these days)...there is really should be no difference in distance between the drivers when hit on their sweet spot. There is certainly differences between the clubs in terms of forgiveness (contact location on the face etc..) so perhaps that explains why someone could magically gain 30 yds simply by switching the club head (keeping the shaft the same - another critical factor)
  10. wow, thanks for all the great advice on the shafts. I agree with the comment about the lower loft...I think I made a mistake going for the 10.5* head, maybe a 9.5* would have been a better choice.
  11. I wanted to get a shaft for my R9 that provides low to mid low launch. The club head is 10.5* and with the current Speeder 757 S flex shaft it gives me a very high ball flight with very little roll. I tend to hit up on the ball & my SS is 108mph... Any suggestions for a low launch shaft that does not feel boardy?
  12. I am a picker as well and the two models that have worked for me are the Mizuno TZoid Pros and the Bridgestone J33R CBs...both are quite forgiving to off center strikes & offer great feedback. Another one that is also good is the Mizuno MP 33 blades which in my opinion are the easiest blades to hit.
  13. I just purchased a R9 420cc which will be reshafted to my favorite driver shaft (speeder 757). has anyone compared this club head to the R510TP? I always had very good results with the R510+speeder 757 combo in terms of accuracy, trajectory control and shot shapes.
  14. I used to play the 18* and 21* MP-FliHis as a replacement for my 2&3 irons last year. The 18* was good off the tee but terrible off the fairway. The 21* was better off both the tee and fairway. However, my great shot percentage was ~70% with them so I decided to replace them. I came across a 2 & 3 Callaway X18 irons in the used bin at my local pro shop, my great shot percentage is almost 95% with these. Plus the 2i is a killer as a driving iron. I used to hate the 'wood' like hybrids and the two Cally irons have revitalized my long iron game.
  15. I will try setting up towards the toe during my round this week-end. Sounds like a relatively simple fix to the problem. Thanks
  16. Wow, thank you all for the wealth of information. I am going to try & demo the ZL & G15. I like the suggestion of shortening my current driver as well (at the moment it has a 85g Comp NT shaft at 45in)
  17. Been a while since I posted here. My typical miss with the driver is low towards the heel of club face. Is there a driver out there that is better for this sort of miss hit? I am working on improving my swing but wanted to get opinions on the equipment side. FWIW, my current driver is the Adams 9015d. thanks
  18. I will take the Aerolite Bag, please PM your pp address.
  19. Another tip - visualize that you are digging your following elbow (right one for righties) into the side of your body on the downswing. Works for me
  20. Thanks for the responses. I would have predicted that in the present economy, companies / vendors need to focus even more on customer service. Its amazing to me how so few really get that concept.
