  1. Welcome back, i had the same story, stopped playing in 08 and came back in 2018. The replies so far are pretty accurate in my experience. You will want to start with the driver and 3 wood. One thing thats changed i feel like is you have 7-8 solid choices, because all the brands make really really good stuff now. (Titleist, TM, Callaway, Ping, Mizuno, Cobra, PXG, even Tour Edge) Dont be afraid to grab a year or two old used driver, thats where you can get amazing value. Id then go with new wedges with fresh grooves. Id do irons and putter last, that really hasnt changed much. There is a trend
  2. They have a very very good product. They have some quality control issues they need to work out though. Fragile face, shoddy paintfill, crooked grips. Even so, i still would buy mine again, its been that good and pleasing to putt with.
  3. Id say ventus 10tx and mmt 125 tx should be in consideration, or just an $ taper to match your irons
  4. Well sure if we are comparing mishits to one another, the water is muddy now. My specific experience was comparing flush hits with one another, similar swing speeds, path, aoa, but several mph less ball speed. Maybe i got a dud head or something, who knows.
  5. Couple of goodies for sale: 1: Fujikura Ventus velocore black 6x untipped. Taylormade adapter, golf pride TV +4 grip. Bought brand new and played 5 rounds with it. Plays about 45.75” in my SIM. $old 2: Titleist T100 4 iron with Modus 130 stiff shaft, standard length (38.5”), new GP NDMC. Excellent condition. There is a small cosmetic ding on the badging from me being an idiot and pressing on lead tape with a flathead screwdriver. Tried to capture in pics, purely cosmetic. $retracted 3: Superstroke Traxion tour 3.0 putter grip. Bought new, blown on and playe
  6. despite the face contact, the speed, and path shouldn't change much. If you are saying something is better or faster because you flush it vs mishitting another, that isn't really an apples to apples comparison...and i would think one would take that into consideration.
  7. You need to throw in a 620 cb and mb in there too. And vokeys
  8. Just curious how something can be faster for one person but not the next...?
  9. Not sure what to make if this... alot of hubbub over removing badging on the back. They look closer to the ap2s now imo. Actually, with these pics, the t200 had me more intrigued.
  10. Well we wont get started on mgs, they have lost their way too. So no arguments from me there. I do have my own experience with the st200 head that i shared, and yea i was hitting out of the middle. And someone else in the thread called it better/faster.
  11. Alright. Go look at the am level. How many top college or ams are in a mizuno driver? If it was truly BETTER, You would see it in bags. Its as good, just lets pump the brakes on better...As far as the edits, who truly knows, anything that needs that much editing should be taken with a grain of salt.
  12. Theres a ton of evidence that says otherwise as well (like almost no tour usage) I hate their bracket thing, its matt hitting as hard as he can often 20-25 drives to find the best 5 and then claiming a winner on those 5 and ignoring the other 15-20 edited out shots. Not really how golf works. Its a great driver though, all of these oems have great drivers now, so its just a matter if pick your poison IMO. Occasionally someone needs a little bit of a niche head but even then most oems have that in the lineup too.
  13. Toss up between the tsi3 and mizuno for me, but thats quite a price jump between the two. If money wasnt an issue, tsi3, if on a budget, mizuno.
  14. Your findings are correct. There is a very long thread on here that discusses this in detail if you can find it. OG SIM is about as fade bias as they come, even with slider weight in neutral, the cog is still out toeside. The max is pretty much 100% neutral in terms of cog, but for most people spins about 200-400 rpms higher.
  15. Thats interesting. Seems people either love or hate the feel. Of those you mentioned, except evnroll, all of those have urethane type inserts, which i dont really like, too mushy for my taste. If found the feel to be on par with the mizunos, as far as softness/firmness goes. It does have a little bit of a “hollow” feel to it when you flush it, ill give you that. I know the feel is right for me when my speed control is on point. And so far the speed control has been insanely good.
  16. Cant really speak to the 2021 model (st-z and st-x). I was referring to the st200. I had an st180, and an st190. When the st200g came out i tested it head to head with the SIM and it was consistently 3-4 mph slower on ball speed. I did finally hit two balls with the 2021 model, and it felt great, looks great. Its a good driver with plenty of evidence to support it. I still believe the st200 was a step back though.
  17. I just got done testing all the models, and there are several really good options. Ultimately went with srixon zx as it just seemed to have all or most of everything i would want in a 2 iron. Looks and feels the best imo, forgiving, workable. Feels like a cheat code, point and shoot. I could easily have gamed the u500 or p790, or even hmb. All pretty good. I almost want to replace my 4 iron with a second utilty .
  18. Well i just got my nova in the mail today and Im a little bummed out. Removed plastic to see this: Had to be this way before shipping (no way it was damaged in shipping with plastic and headcover on). Hopefully cobra takes care of it but it gives me doubt on how this face will hold up over time.
  19. You sure its not just a shadowing effect from the bulge in the crown? Kinda what it looks like to me anyways
  20. No. This is completely wrong. Op, to diagnose spin issues you need to: 1st: Isolate strike pattern. If you are hitting low on the face your spin numbers will be very high regardless of any head or shaft. The easiest way to lower spin is to strike it higher. 2nd: you may need to loft down. Loft is the second culprit of high spin. Whether you artifically add it or not, or no matter your angle of attack, the loft you dynamically deliver is the second, and arguably first culprit of spin. 3rd: head design. No heads are equal, the g400 max is a well do
