Solid bag right there! How do you like the fairway and hybrid? Were you ever thinking about trying the bio cell + fairway? If so how did they compare?

I personally love the fairway and hybrids. I was skeptical at first but after hitting them, they do whatever you want. I didn't really like last years but they nailed it this year, sound is perfect and ball flight is stellar. I thought about the BioCell+ fairway but the normal version get into the air a little quicker off the deck, which is what I have been looking for in a 3 wood. I play golf only in ohio and carry is way more important than roll here, so I want the ball to get up quick and carry a long ways. If I were playing in the southern states I would opt for the lower launching counterpart.

Whole bag looks great, but love the look of that putter in particular!

Thanks! I'll tell you that putter looks a million times better in person.

Really cool experience working with Ken Flanigan. He lives like 5 miles away from the club I work at. He comes out a couple times a year to do some fittings and he seriously knows everything there is to know about putting. He brought out the Sam putting lab and in less than 30 minutes he had built me a putter in the parking lot!

That putter looks great! I just talked to Ken on the phone today about setting up a fitting (sounds like he has some new models that aren't on his website). Is it safe to assume you would recommend a custom fitting with Ken? I had be debating if it would be better to get fit on a SAM somewhere I could try tons of different putters (such as Miles of Golf in MI) - but I feel like Ken would be more knowledgeable than your average big box fitter (no disrespect to hypothetical big box fitter... you still know 1000X more than me).

Any feedback on the experience is welcomed!

Looks like you have a pretty high swingspeed judging by your shafts. Why did you go with the Bio Cell Driver over the Bio Cell +? I am thinking about doing the same thing, but putting an ahina 70x in the regular biocell head. I think that it would fly forever and still be pretty forgiving. Just want to know your thought process? Did you get fitted?

Thanks

I would highly recommend a fitting with ken. The putters feel much better than anything I've ever putted with. Using his portable Sam lab, he has a ton of data plus he knows what all the numbers mean. Can't go wrong.

I don't have the highest swing speed but I load the shaft very hard on the downswing. Swing speed is around 108 on average. I tried both the BioCell and BioCell+ back in October and I could not stand the sound of the plus version, it sounded very thuddy like the zl encore did. Also I wanted a 460cc head in a driver, plus the paint job looks much better in the regular. I chose the rip alpha because a super low spinning shaft with a high launch head sounds like a good idea to me. I fit myself for the club since it's kinda my job lol. I have hit it on the range a couple times with a launch monitor and was getting some pretty good distance, averaging about 295 total.

Bought the biocell black and put in a Ahina 70x. The head and shaft combination are super low spin. Had to adjust up to the 9.5d setting to get some height and probably should go higher. The ball was just dropping out of the air. How did you get your swingweight up to D7? I think that mine is probably around D2 judging by the feel and would like it to get to about D4.

I ordered it directly from cobra and they made it to d7. I find that I do have trouble getting the clubhead back around when it's too light. I was skeptical about swing weight but after going d7 throughout the bag, I can tell you it does make a difference.
