Makes sense. If he can control his driver which is his only weakness at times he can become elite. 

 

 

I'm not disputing his driver could be better but he's 6 in the world, he's already elite.

Relax. It's a Ventus TR, he has NOT reached the Autoflex stage. Yet. Unlike another fellow country man...

I was gonna give you a confused emoji, but that’s weak. So I’ll say why I would have given it to you. He did say it’s his only weakness “at times” 😉 


What’s confusing? Is one of the 6 best players in the world not elite?

Who said he wasn’t elite?

Cam is 6 with a driver that can sometimes get a little lose. Tighten that up and 🆙 he can go. @nikeblades00 post makes a lot of sense in that regard.

‘He can become elite’ but enough threadjacking.

 

I wish I could have tried the TR when I got fit recently.

Oh okay. I see, “become” elite. Yes you are right. My bad on that. He is most definitely already elite. I think we all agree he is elite, but can elevate his ranking if he dials in his one slight weakness. A driver that can sometimes get a little leaky. Hence cutting the driver down a bit, heavier head and trying the TR.

Go Cam! One of my favs out there.

Sweet set-up. I couldn't get the TR to work in driver. I love the ventus blue in every other club but driver.

I need a bit more if you will?  I'm in Ventus blue in driver and love it...however, not what I expected.  I kept reading everyone talking big kick with the blue...and it simply does not.  It may be my move, yes, but coming from blue board profile ventus blue is very different.  Anyone care to tell me that has tried blue and tr what they feel different..in driver?

Coming from KKXD which ive played for years the ventus blue  just felt too whippy. I like it in my driving iron, perhaps because the shaft is shorter and the whip sensation is more contained if you get what i'm saying. I'd imagine i'd like it in 3w and 5w too

I also played KK 60TX Dual Core for several seasons and to me it had more of a pronounced kick than blue does...for me anyway.  I can't imaging the black ventus has much feel at all?!  Thanks for input!

 

The Black has little feel unless you are at WRX Levels of Speed.   The Blue does has some feel in the tradition WhiteBoard style which I love.
