  1. @LUXOR54 you will be happy to hear that they have 3 wood then and possibly a strong 3
  2. Callaway is has the triple diamond sz 5 wood (check out john rahm's 2021 WITB)
  3. Comparing Epic Max LS to Epic Speed: Max LS is overall has a higher clubhead MOI Max LS, even when the weight is in the draw position, is more fade biased than Epic Speed (LS is more adjustable).
  4. The short answer is both. However there is more that goes into that. The driver you hit most center will be the most forgiving option in the end
  5. @tgoodspe1991 I have hit both. I210 will spin more at the same loft. Definitely softer in feel. Great to pair with a firmer golf ball. Offset in millimeters (mm) Ping I210 vs Cobra MiM: In the 4i: Ping i 210 has more offset (4.57mm) vs Cobra MiM (3.4mm) In the 7i: Ping i210 has less offset (2.28mm) vs Cobra MiM (2.5mm) In the PW: Ping i210 has less offset (0.76mm) vs Cobra MiM (1.9mm) In my opinion, Cobra MiM is better compared to the Titleist T100 in terms of offset. Note: The Ping i210 and the T100 are similar in headweight. The Cobra MiM will feel slightly heavier. I found that the i210 is a unicorn
  6. You will find that sound and feel are closely connected. Of course you could just use hotmelt to deaden the sound.
  7. Hey guys, Been trying to find information about the overall stiffness (area under the EI curve) of these two shafts. The databases I have access do not have information about these two. I know that both are roughly the same weight and flight profile (Alta CB has higher balance). Let me know your thoughts, any information is appreciated -JJ
  8. 4 wood 7 wood is so good for so many players as well as 5 wood and 4 hybrid.
  9. @ode I've been trying to find one in a 5 wood for ages.
  10. My shortlist would be Titleist Ts2 / Tsi2 and Taylormade SIM / SIM2
  11. @PEI_Golfer They are a great value even at their retail $125/club price tag, half off even better. You got a steal.
  12. I210s have been great to fit with, however they are 8-10 weeks backorder atm.
  13. @AcesAndHoles Your experience with Mavrik lines up with what I experienced fitting with it. There's a reason why so many Callaway Staffers chose to play the tour only models. Epic Max LS has been a great driver to fit with, even the stock MCA MMT shaft fits a good amount of people. If you normally hit a fade, check your strike. With a driver since the face is curved from heel to toe, you can hit draws if you strike it on the toe.
  14. It is confusing for sure. However, I have exact measurements of the heads. So I am not guessing the performance of them. In my opinion, Max LS was Callaway's way of competiting with the DNA of the Ping G425 Max. If you like Ping G425 Max, you most likely will like MAX LS. If you like TSi3 and Radspeed, more often than not, you will like Epic Speed more.
  15. If you like Tsi3 and Radspeed, I would test out Callaway Epic Speed its the most similar.
  16. 4 wood 7 wood are killer combo 5 wood 4 hybrid is another
  17. 1. Thinner sole with same bounce: Titleist T Grind, Edel T Grind, Homna W4 Wedge....etc. Sole width is what I would look at first, then dial in the bounce for that sole width.
  18. @freddancer12 Would you consider a combo set? For example, P770 GW-7i and P790 6i-4i?
  19. @sdsarmaduk Titleist 620CB, Taylormade P7MC, Wilson Staff CB (2021).
  20. @JermWRX I'm gonna assume your ballspeed is around 125mph on average and that you have and angle of attack between 3-5 degrees. Optimal launch and spin for a 7 iron would be 15-17 degrees of launch angle and 6500-7250rpms (depending on your shaft lean, angle of attack, and strike location). This is would allow the ball that is coming into a green about a 47 degree to 51 decent angle to minimize roll out. If your ball speed is around 115mph on average and have an angle of attack between 3-5 degrees. Optimal launch and spin for a 7iron would be 17-19 degrees of launch with 6250-7000 spin (depending on your shaft lean, angle of attack, and strike location). This is would allow the ball that is coming into a green about a 44 degree to 49 decent angle to minimize roll out. In other words if you have higher launcher and spin, don't be afraid of reducing the lofts down by a degree or two. Also, the golf ball you play can be just as influential on your ball flight and decent angle. Example, Prov1 vs Prov1x you would see a higher launch and spin generally from Prov1x and therefore an increase in decent angle (more steep). Keep in mind these are just generalizations. Everyone swings differently and therefore may need different launch conditions and equipment. If you liked the p790 also give the wilson d7 forged a try! Hope this helps, JJ
  21. Srixon Zx7, Mizuno JPX Tour 921, and Callaway X-Forged 21'. Keep in mind you can always take a club with more loft and reduce the loft (Example: Taking a 34* Iron and bending it to 32*) to increase offset. Just keep in mind that depending on your angle of attack, divot depth, shaft lean will determine the correct sole width and bounce you will need, and therefore the correct club head. Out of the three, I would say test the JPX Tour and the Srixon first. They seem to fit more people than the X-forged. JJ
  22. Depends if you comparing parallel (.370) or taper tip (.355) shafts. In general, X100 has a stiffer tip and a lower balance point. KBS $ Taper has a stiffer butt section and softer tip. Both have a similar overall stiffness.
  23. @tipperi are you a right-handed golfer? If yes, G425 Max or SIMMAX2 will be great options. My first pick would be G425 for the moveable weight and adjustable lie angle to flatter. For SIMMAX2, this year the weight is more towards the toe slightly and is now fade biased. Also if you struggle with low spin and excessive curvature a driver with the weight more back in the driver is the way to go! JJ
  24. Zx5/7 combos are gonna be popular this year. I'd say that my only concern with the apex pro/ apex combo is that the apex pro takes taper tip and the apex are parallel. which has always puzzled me why they would do that. The bend profiles are different.
  25. Oh man, now I see. Answer is still similar. KBS Tour is about 5g heavier, has a higher balance point. The KBS Tour S is significantly stiffer than the Elevate Tour. You will definitely feel less "kick" in the down swing to stiffer midsection. I would expect the KBS Tour to have a lower trajectory due to a higher tip stiffness. My source is a golfshaft database from a major oem and software subscription. However, you still want to test and swing the shafts. How a golfer swings (speed, tempo, setup, and swing mechanics) as well as their miss tendencies will determine what shaft is a better fit.
