  1. 8th round with the Raw Orange in the driver and 3rd with the Raw Blue in the 3 wood today. Shot my low 9 holes of the year with a 31 on my last 9 holes today and a -4 for the 18 and a lot of it has to do with the driver. I was -4 on the par 5s with a birdie on all of them and was on in 2 on three of the four. I can't say enough great things about the Raw Orange for a driver shaft; it's pinpoint accurate, smooth, predictable and easy to feel through the entire swing. I hit some great shots with the Raw Blue in the 3 wood, but still need some more time with it to convince me that it is bette
  2. I first visited (now have been 3 times) right around the time The Hive first opened and learned a lot about my putting stroke and why I like a certain style of putter. I went for a custom putter just to get exactly what I wanted. Not saying it's only the putter fitting but my handicap is down 7 points from when I first visited. The times I've been there, The Hive has about 30 putters available right then and there with a bunch of different rare, tour and Hive only headcovers. They also have all of the normal line there and can custom fit you for any of them. As for the divot tools and ball
  3. Got the Raw Blue 75TX for the 3 wood to match the Raw Orange in the driver. Too early to give a full review on the Raw Blue in the 3 wood but I will say my first shot on the course with it was off the deck from 260 that reached the green. The same straightness I saw in the Raw Orange seems to be in the Raw Blue as well.
  4. I would say they are in the same ballpark, with the Raw Orange being slightly stiffer. The biggest difference of feel between the two shafts is that the IZ has more of a linear load.
  5. 4th round today with the Tensei Raw Orange 65TX and I still am loving it. Played a much longer course (7159) this week and was able to hit driver 9 times with fantastic results. Had 4 GPS measured 300+ yard drives with the longest being 332 yards setting up an iron into a 550 yard par 5. Fairways hit was 8/9 with the only miss being slightly left from a pull. The best attribute of this shaft is the straightness I get out of it. I thought it would be a tough challenge getting the IZ 6X out of my driver but it's no doubt the Tensei Raw Orange is the better shaft for my swing. The Tensei Raw
  6. The CK Pro and the AV Raw feel completely different. The AV Raw is SO MUCH smoother than the CK pro.
  7. Had my 3rd round with the Raw Orange 65TX and it feels about time to say this shaft is IN THE BAG. Signature is updated to reflect this and I've been so impressed I ordered a Raw Blue 75TX to try in the 3 wood from Will Peoples. The IZ was knocked out after a good 3 year run in having it in the 2017 M3 and the Epic Flash SZ TD. My round today was unfortunately on a course where I only hit 4 drivers the entire day (Fossil Creek in Fort Worth) but each one was fantastic. The lack of curvature/straightness from the shaft still seems to be the the biggest upside for the Tensei Raw Orange, but t
  8. Got in 2 more range session and another round today. Driver swing wasn't quite as good as it was last time, but I've got the shaft figured out for when I try and step on it. Moved the weight about 1/2" towards the middle from the extreme toe and it makes the hard swings become a 5 yard fade instead of the push I was seeing early on. My strike on the driver was a little suspect today but shaft is still super straight and still hit all but 2 fairways (not out of the normal for me) with a few 300+ yards bomb. I asked my normal group what they thought of my driving game with the new shaft and
  9. I swapped out the 6 gram front weight of the Epic Flash Subzero TD to a 14 gram to get the feel I was looking for. The change got it to D4 from the D3 it was with the IZ and the 6 gram weight.
  10. I'd say to me they load fairly similar at least to me. IZ is a butt stiff shaft so I can see why you couldn't feel the load like you could the white. I played the CK pro orange before and I think that would fit you better than the AV raw orange.
  11. My initial session and round comments have been added to my first post! I'm happy to answer any questions.
  12. First I'd like to thank Mitsubishi and GolfWRX for providing me the opportunity of testing such a great product! A little about me and my golf game: I just turned 38 and currently sitting at a +2.7 handicap with the strengths of my game being chipping, putting, strike efficiency and accuracy off the tee. I've been playing for 20 years and recently changed my swing which has nose dived my handicap to finally being able to maintain a plus index the full season. Driver swing speed was last measured at 109 with a ballspeed of 161. My current gamer driver and shaft: Callaway Epic Flash Subzero T
  13. City, State? Fort Worth, TXHandicap? +2.7Current driver and shaft? Callaway Epic Flash SubZero Triple Diamond with GD IZ 6XWhat would you improve with your current setup??More consistent right and left dispersion What Tensei AV RAW shaft do you want to test? Raw Orange 65TXDo you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and quality photos? For sure
  14. My work used to play golf league out there till 5 cars over a matter of weeks got broken into. The front 9 is pretty boring and the back 9 is much more interesting. I won't say not to play it, but it's not on my radar to play again anytime in the near future.
  15. It's limit release for sure, not a standard release. It looks almost identical to this one posted on BST here last year, minus the neck bend and condition: https://forums.golfwrx.com/discussion/1772908/beautiful-bettinardi-3-step-jam-putter-trades-welcomed
