Hello all, I would like to hear your opinions on how technologies surrounding golf clubs - specifically drivers (all other feedback is welcome) - has advanced in the past decade or so. Personally, I feel like adjustable hosels have been the only industry changing revolution. Launch monitors almost fall into this category. I accept that the new materials and manufacturing processes are improvements, but have they really made that much difference? Happy to be persuaded otherwise. Thanks!

Hello all, Out of curiosity, I wanted to find out if the longest drivers of the ball grip the club any tighter/more loosely than whats normally prescribed (just tight enough to insure the club doesn't come out of the hands during the swing). I googled it, and was surprised that nothing came up. It's such a tiny fundamental, but I feel like the tighter you grip it - you won't be able to rip it. The tighter someone holds onto the club, the less wrist hinge they will be able to produce which is one of the main power sources in a swing. I feel like I have way more control on the club when I grip it tightly. But I would like to try to loosen up and figure out how to time hinging and releasing it square.
Krank is probably the most well known LD driver ever . This Rage isn't mint , some cosmetic scratches and a skymark, but still has TONS of pop left! Perfect for someone wanting to try long drive and\or wants to put it in the bag for a scarmble, and\or showing off lol. I think my back has had enough so time to sell or trade this, built with House Of Forged XX Flex shaft ($300+ when new), and I believe when I bought it I was told 48". There is a gap in the ferrule but that's cosmetic. Grip is nearly new . Surprisingly not to hard to keep straight compared to other LD drivers , I've hit many of them! Headcover included had perfect feedback here and on ebay, OPEN TO TRADES. Nothing specific just shoot what you have , prefer cash now tho $130 *pics are collaged for easy posting , can send more pics if you message me
