JFrank WITB Jan 2023
jfrank posted a topic in What's In The Bag Photo EditionThis is the jfrank bag as it ends 2022 and goes into January 2023. 2022 has been a good year of golf with some nice rounds at TPC Sawgrass, TPC San Antonio, Canyon Springs, World Woods, Atlantic Dunes, Heron Point, LPGA, and Old Corkscrew. FSGA 4-Ball win at Vanderbilt. Two eagles this year. Hit #17 green at Sawgrass three times. The bag has evolved with some drivers and wood changes, along with a putter commitment. WITB January 2023: Bag = Ogio Octane Carry with Bombs Driver = Ping G410 Plus - 10.5 degree with Tensei CK Orange, 60g Stiff, Neutral weight 3 Wood = Adams XTD 13.5Ti - 13.5 set at 15 degrees, with Matrix Red Tie 7Q3 70g Stiff Absolutely love the huge velocity slots on top and bottom, plus the weighting - have hit a couple 260, but can also top it. Hybrid/Rescue = TaylorMade Rescue 2011 - 3h, 18 degrees, Aldila RIP TM-TP-HB 85 grams Stiff Irons = TaylorMade SIM Max - 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, P, A (21.5deg-49deg) KBS MAX 85g Regular Steel Shafts Little too much offset for me now, but I hit some good shots with these over the past couple of years. SW D0-D1. Sand Wedge = Cleveland CBX2 - 54 degree, 12 degrees bounce, Dynamic Gold 115 Wedge Lob Wedge = Cleveland CBX2 - 58 degree, 10 degrees bounce, Dynamic Gold 115 Wedge Putter = Ping Scottsdale TR - Custom CF insert, Golf Pride Pro-Only Cord 83g Grip, Black, Pb Love the feel of this one. My backup is a TM Rossa Daytona. My handicap is down to sub-15 and my ball striking is improving enough to where I believe I need to make a move to Players Distance irons in 2023. Looking to see if I can make the leap to a Ping i230, Titleist T200, Srixon ZX5, etc. - let me know what you think. Also considering a change to a traditional 58 degree LW for a more narrow profile when opening the blade. I'm staying committed to this driver and putter! I will make some other posts about my 6 drivers and 12 putters throughout the year. jfrank
Pretty much all of the fairway wood shafts I've played in the past have had recommended tip trim instructions of the usual 0.5" trim for 3 wood, 1" for 5 wood (sometimes 7-wood these days) etc. which seems to have worked nicely in general, comparing how the shaft performs from driver to 3 wood etc.. Recently I've picked up a few Fujikura and older Aldila models that recommend 0 tip trim for 3 woods and I'm abit nervous/curious about why they do this. It's not as if the tips of the shaft are so stiff in comparison to other manufactures that they perform differently (or is it?!). Is it just a presumption that you want a fairway wood to launch higher than a driver? I'm not sure that's always the case from a shaft perspective, loft does the job for the most part. I've noticed Aldila have gone to the standard 0.5"-3 wood, 1" 5 wood or similar since being brought out by MRC. Anyway, so the question is what are peoples experiences or knowledge of why they do this? And how has if effected the performance of the shaft? Has not trimming the 3 wood shaft worked or have you had better results ignoring Fujikura etc. advice and going with the usual 0.5" trim etc? Anybody follow the no tip trim advice on shafts from other manufacturers that usual recommend trimming and had success? Any particular experience of the Fujikura Atmos line would be appreciated! Cheers
