  1. Found a mint used Rogue 4w on Black Friday and swapped in a Tensei CK 60 shaft and so far been very happy with results. Launches perhaps a little lower than I'd prefer but feels good and gained 10+ yards when needed on my Epic Flash 5w lofted down to 17* (which I wasn't complaining about).
  2. Rogue 4w and Epic Flash 5w cranked down to 17* have both worked out well for me.
  3. I removed the 3 wood from my bag last fall mostly because i was hitting my Steelhead XR 5w nearly as far and more consistently...but instead of just being happy with that at Xmas I picked up a Rogue 4w (17*) and used Epic Flash 5w (at 17*) and am now alternating between them to figure out which i like best (both are good...little more distance out of the Rogue 4w but slightly lower launch). At any rate the trusty Steelhead XR 5w sits in the backup bag. Oh and then next club is the Epic Flash 4 hybrid at 20* which i'm very happy with. So now deciding whether to leave bag at that with 13 clubs
  4. Was after same kind of ball and AVX and Bridgestone RX are the best i found. AVX a little longer and RX spins a little better around the greens but both deliver the goods.
  5. Sorry, should have said....two 1 1/2 inch strips = 3 inches all together.
  6. Cut my Rogue down to 44.5" and added two strips of lead tape to middle bottom of clubhead...perhaps it 'should' be a little heavier but feels good. It's money now - 10 more yards distance and much better dispersion.
  7. 20-30 yards gained would be unrealistic but have similar driver SS (95mph) and primarily used the softer lower compression Bridgestone RXS and Srixon Q Star Tour last year with success (good distance/decent spin) but end of season tried the Titlest AVX and found i gained about 10 yds off the tee and a half a club with irons. That ball gave me biggest distance increase of all balls i've tried out. HOWEVER l do still like the distance/flight/feel/spin of the Bridgestone offerings so am going to try the RX to start off this year (along with the AVX) and choose one. Any of these four b

    4 wood

    Haven't hit the Mavrik offering but have recently been alternating between a Rogue 4w and an Epic Flash 5w lofted down to 17*...both work well for me, as well as Ping 5w lofted down to 16.5 - not as long as the Callaway's but still a solid consistent club. AND I hit a Cobra f8 5-6 a couple years ago and didn't mind it though tended to hook more than not for me. I'd say you couldn't go way wrong with any of them...mostly would come down to gapping and the distance you want from it.
  9. Following this thread with interest. Last spring found a used Rogue with stock Adila Synergy shaft and hit it really solid and consistently all last season with really no serious complaints other than a lower ball flight but I kept loft at 9 degrees so I couldn't have been that upset haha - but have a credit to use and have been feeling like I should 'upgrade' to the Epic Flash or the Mavrik or Mavrik Max. Mavrik Max from what I have read sounds the most similar to the Rogue in terms of shape and performance...but would it really be a noticeable upgrade or just more of the same? Only differenc
  10. I know I was thinking it haha...and have to agree with iNeedMoreGolf. Could suggest some fairway woods/hybrids that are straighter or more forgiving...or suggest shortening your shafts a little for more control...or getting into some heavier stiffer shafts - but figuring out what causes your wild misses and trying to fix that would seem get you further ahead in the long run. Especially because it sounds like your regular course is a tough, demanding, challenging track that yes, needs some course management, but also is long enough to warrant hitting a driver more often than not. T
  11. Bending a 54* to 55* one solution...or just go with a 54* you like and use a 3/4 swing for shorter shots into greens. Always easier to take a little off a swing then having to jump all over a 56* to get it where you want.
  12. Welcome back. Got back into playing in 2020 after a 7 year layoff so went through a lot of what you likely are going through in terms of 'catching up' (in my case it was balls and clubs as my set was over 20 years old lol). Regarding balls not sure who's saying softer = less distance since so many factors to consider but my experience trying out several different balls this past year was that softer felt better and flew further (driver swing speed similar to yours pre surgery - 93-95 mph). Early in year tried Callaway Chrome Soft X, Srixon Z Star XV, and TM TP5X - solid

    GAPR mid

    From a long time ago so not sure you'd remember but any recollection what the Gapr Mid 4 sole weight was before you changed it to a 12g weight - 6 grams? Tinkering with one now and cut shaft down 3/4" like you...now wondering if changing weight would help. Thanks.
  14. I purchased a 4 hybrid in both the Epic Flash and Ping g410 both in vg used condition back in end of November and can't say anything bad about either. Not vertically challenged but trimmed 3/4 of an inch off the butt of both...mostly just because i prefer a slightly shorter shaft in all my woods/hybrids, and both swing/feel great still. Epic Flash has a lighter head and hotter face/little more roll...so set loft at 20* in neutral setting and have been hitting it around 220 yds. Ping has slightly heavier head and flies higher/lands softer....kept loft at 22* in flat setting and been averaging a
