Callaway Epic Flash SZ Triple Diamond 10.5 set to 9.5 with Aldila Rogue White 60x


Cobra LTD Pro set to 9.5 with Aldila Copperhead 60tx


Sometimes I mix in my tour issue Callaway Rogue SZ-V head (such a cool/rare head)...


I’m not sure the LTD Pro combo can be beat when centered. However, off center hits, especially high center and high toe suffer from too low of a spin rate. The Triple Diamond maintains playable low spin on high toe/high center hits.

Only taken the Mavrik and SZ on the course so far. For me personally Mavrik seems to be lower spin and a little bit faster. Dispersion has been a touch better on the SZ but I would equate that more to me having more time playing it. Since I am going to be working from home for the foreseeable future I am going to carve time out to truly test all of them against one another. I will report back with the results for anyone who cares haha

Last year played 8.5 degree 917D3 with Oban Kiyoshi Purple 65g 04 (stiff) but felt like I wanted/needed something with a little more weight and stiffness so picked up a HZRDUS Black 75g X. Worked well but still not as consistent and I would like to be. Decided to pick up a 8.5 degree TS2 head since I have an extra shaft laying around. Not sure the TS2 was the right pick-up for me, wish I would have picked up a TS3 head. Needless to say I am still tinkering around and hate it! My 15 degree 917 F2 has been my most consistent club over the last 6 months and very happy with how it performs. Have to get this driver thing figured out. Use to be the strongest/most consistent part of my game.

I am a 5.4 currently, ss is 112-118 and I play the Cobra SZ 9 deg (standard settings) and I just put in a small batch smoke yellow in it and gained 3+ mph in ball speed. It was just dumb luck as I wasn't fitted for the Cobra but I found a great deal online. Last year I played a fitted m5 with an aldila atx green fitted here by greengrass and loved it but the cobra is just way more forgiving

I'm keeping with my trusted driver :)

Callaway XR Speed (9º, NS setting) with the Oban white 63 gram 4-flex. Will probably regrip once my new irons arrive. (MCC4+ Align midsize now, want to go Dry-Tac Midsize)

110-112 swingspeed, 0-2º up, -2 to 0º in-out path. Getting me the lowest spin I could find when I got fit for them. Though I did change my swing quite a bit (I was -1º and out to in and 1-2º down). The flight is great, it is far, it does what I want.. Don't see any reason to change here.

under 5 right now, but he’s not sure ANYONE would want JP’s current rig...TM SLDR 430 Set to low, 9*? with an original white speeder 661.

There’s a lot of kick in that shaft but it can bomb them on sweet spot strikes. It’s been a great, a tremendous combo for JP for a long time now....but...

Jack Pearsall really wantS a callaway mavrik 9* With a 6.0 or 6.5 px riptide in 60 or 65g. Not sure which is optimal. Thinking 6.0 60g, but either way, that combo felt like your first breast squeeze as a teenager. Whoa ?
