  1. Thanks for the input guys. Y’all crazy swinging D-9 and E-0 drivers I might keep going and get it up to D-7 or 8, now I’m curious! The thing for me is that the overall static weight can’t get too high. I have a Fuji Pro 2.0 7x , I believe it’s 79g un-cut, and that thing feels like a tree branch getting it around….but it goes pretty straight Im wondering how a 50 tx and 200g head would be @ 46”
  2. Had a bit of an ah-ha moment in the simulator yesterday while tinkering with driver swingweight. So I play MOI matched irons that are all +1.00” - 1.5” in length. 1/4” increments from Gw all the way up to 4i. Short iron heads are lightened and long iron have added weight. Wedges are E-1 and scales down to D-7 in the longer irons. They are all long and heavy but the MoI matching and building at 1/4” increments has been one of the best things I’ve ever done , équipement wise. Never hit my irons this straight and hit as many greens. I hit 17/18 greens once this year and that was my best by far My driver SS is 120-122 , and been doing some shaft tinkering since the weather has gotten cold. I like the feel of my driver at D-3, but have been struggling with a high toe miss that I just can’t shake on occassion. I’ve added weight to drivers while in my garage and measuring swingweight. And anything at D-4 and heavier feels like a battle axe So in the sim yesterday, same thing with driver - good ball, high toe, high toe, good ball.. This is a Sim2 8* with Diamana TB 60 tx, at just under 46” long. Driver in upright/square setting on adapter I started moving and swapping weights, and was not influenced by my swingweight scale. Started pounding it after I added almost 7g to the head, which is quite a bit. Carrying 315-320 pretty consistently Get home and of course had to put it on the scale. It’s like D-6.2 , an absolute Never thought I’d hit it so well with such a head heavy setup, but it is what it is! Maybe it helps load the shaft that tiny bit more where my timing just matched up? Or the SW just matches my irons now so I can just swing it with the same tempo Was just curious if anyone else was swinging or had success with driver @ D-6+ ?
  3. Honestly, no modern graphite shaft is going to be in the same ballpark as any steel shaft in a driver. The weight difference is just too much. I dont know what the lightest steel shaft available is for a driver length, but its gotta be 100g or very close. It will more than likely feel like swinging a battle axe
  4. Thanks for sharing this comp - it is literally the exact scenario I was looking for. Tipped the crap out of a MMT 70x while I waiting for my other shaft to arrive, and absolutely bombed it - just a TOUCH loose. But the profile felt great in my hands, I was shocked how well it held up. I swing 122-124 but the Ventus black feels like s*** to me and is a touch low The MMT 60tx can be had on eBay for like $115 at this point, seems like a great value for a TX flex shaft. I'm going to order one up. 2300rpm and a mid/flat trajectory is exactly where I want to be
  5. On the Rocketballz 3h, do you know what the actual CPM is on the Veylix shaft? I've been wanting to try one of these for a while, but would want to verify its an actual x-flex. They are made/sold with a sticker on the butt end of the shaft that shows actual CPM it tested at
  6. I assumed so, because the only way to build a driver or FW with the Ventus black in 6 or 7x was with a $250 upgrade. And the shafts have the Velocore label. Hopefully OP can confirm
  7. Are you available January 16th-18th for this event? ABSOFREAKINLUTELYCurrent driver setup? Taylormade M5 - 9* tuned down 1.5*, Ventus Black 6xWhat excites you about the new TaylorMade SIM woods? I'd love to see the comparison between SIM and M5, reading about increased stability and spin rates. I love all the best features of past drivers combined into one!Are you willing to document your experience in the GolfWRX forum as well as on social media? I would love to
  8. Curious if anyone has happened to have removed any of the weights in the heads? I have read they are tungsten, and most places say they are steel. Would love to see one removed from the head or know what they weigh
  9. Can you please send me a message ? Also not able to contact you directly
