  1. There’s nothing magical per se about my 009 flow neck other than I really, really wanted one for a long, long time, I saved a little here and there over time, got one, and it makes me quite happy. that’s pretty much it.
  2. @Poolparty- Yeah, I’m happy with the W60 for sure. It’s just that they are increasingly harder to come by and I’m not sure what the current profile of the W would be. I was just about sure it was DF.... are you saying it’s closer to ZF?
  3. ^ that seems to be the popular view. I got a few messages that the W played more like today’s DF, whereas the D+ / D Limited series is more akin to the traditional whiteboard / ahina profile. I appreciate these points of view ya’ll. Thank you for taking the time to contribute.
  4. Hey guys W’s are a little harder to come by these days and I’m trying to find something comparable. I enjoy the DF in my fairway, but am hoping for something a little closer to the W in the driver. D limited seems the closest.... any thoughts? Anything else I should be looking at? thanks

  6. I’m a big, big fan of these shafts. At one point, around my 40th, X100 became a little too much for me. I had a cup of coffee with the 120X and I found them to throw the ball a little too high and spin a little too much. They felt very comparable to S300s to me. I had a fitting that included, amongst other things, a run on the Mizuno optimizer. This was listed and wouldn’t have been something I would have tried otherwise. The 105X is a different animal. The profile plays a little stiffer than the 120, and feels more comparable to the x100 in terms of playability profi
  7. This is the season I am starting to play like the 42y/o I am, rather than the much better 24y/o player I was. One would be the SM8 58* S grind. Not foxy like the M or the D, but it just gets in done for me from a variety of spots and conditions. Second is parking the Ventus Black 6X for the more friendly Diamana W 60X. The Ventus is too much for me. Gimme some Advil and LFG!
  8. Three authentic Ventus Black 6X (Velocore) shafts. Each has a Z star cord grip and measure as follows: Titleist: Measures 44.5'' from grip end to adapter tip. Played 3 rounds and a handful of range sessions. $200+ shipping Taylormade: Measures 44.5'' from grip end to adapter tip. Never been swung. $200+ shipping Ping: Measures 44 1/8" from grip end to adapter tip. Played 6 rounds and a handful of range sessions. $200+ shipping. Would sell all three for $500+ shipping. Paypal only. Thanks
  9. This didn’t age particularly well. My cup of coffee with the TSI3 ends. Within guarantee period exchange for the Tsi4. A little more demanding but by no means unforgiving, in exchange incremental gains in ball speed and spin reduction. Don’t sleep on the Tsi4!
  10. I make more birdies with wedge than I do fairway woods. I am decent enough that I CAN go for it in two...but I seldom try. I need a second, safe driver. 250 or so but highly dependable fairway finder. For me that’s SIM2. I go 2 (19*) hybrid then 4 iron. Yeah there are some gaps I guess, but i know what the driver does, what the fairway wood does and what they hybrid does. 99/100 that’s plenty of options from the tee. Those tweener distances more often than not result in bogey rather than birdie when I go for it. YRMV
  11. Is Bryson Dechambeau a brand? Asking for a friend....
  12. Those are pretty great too! I ended up finding these for $25 i don’t know if it’s nostalgia or simply ease of use, but I suspect it’s the later. This fit, they are well made, they aren’t too snug, and they are comparatively non-descript. I was quite happy to find these!
  13. Those Pings are nice. Harder to find, but nice. I found these Japan only Titleist as well that are also nice. Expensive tho. All things being equal I’d very much enjoy either of these but would prefer without the intense branding .... I’m suppose I’m more surprised than anything. Given how many niche custom shops there are, this just isn’t a thing I guess.
  14. I walk almost exclusively. I have a plain, unmarked members links master. It’s a great bag. Double strapped it’s no heavier then the stay dry stand bag from a few years ago that it replaced. It had a slightly smaller profile tho. I think it comes down to whether you want the thin materials used in run of the mill stand bags - and the related weight savings that provides - or, higher quality and durability - and the required weight. Those stainless strap buckles vs the plastic clips.... that sort of thing. I looked at SL2 hard.....but came upon just enou
