  1. No, it's still up in the middle of the shaft but the insert itself is very short. It won't really fit in the tip section since it's a drinking straw wrapped in open cell foam. Here is a picture of the full insert that used to be Sensicore. Now it's the same insert but only about 4-5" long instead of 8-10" long.
  2. Funny enough, True Temper has even shortened the Sensicore insert they used to use in their shafts. Originally the sensicore insert was close to as long as these inserts. Now that they've re-branded it and started calling it VSS, they have cut the length in half and now the insert is only about 4 inches long.
  3. I've used these on a few sets of irons. They seem to work as advertised although I've found that if you cut them in half they are easier to install, provide the same amount of benefit, and give you twice as many to use. The straw tends to bend and mash up as you get them fully pushed down.
  4. It's my understanding the Graphite Design Tour AD XC is an update of the Tour AD BB design. Very similar bend profiles overall.
  5. I got one too! I'm not the biggest fan of the 2 style compared to the 1 but since it's more rare I snatched one up.
  6. Yep, probably couldn't get the gap wedge shaft from KBS so they made a "spinner" shaft buy putting in an 8 iron shaft. I'm sure they expected that no one would know the difference. That's 100% why I build all my own stuff, can't trust anyone else to do it right.
  7. My Taylormade putter finally showed up last week! For some reason they didn't match up my name with the same color paint . It's an easy fix though.
  8. Those Nakashima heads had some heat to them.
  9. At the rate Ping is going, it'll be 3 years before you'll ever get a set.
  10. F1 drivers blame their cars all the time whether it's really a mechanical issue or not. It pushes engineers to make the car better and better and that eventually trickles down into the regular cars we purchase. It's the same here and we will all benefit from what Cobra is learning from Bryson's constant envelope pushing. Don't get me wrong, I don't really align with Bryson's personality but he's the face of Cobra now and they have to roll with it. I'm sure there will be some great internal meetings at Cobra to discuss further and I'm sure Bryson will post some sort of apology and life will move on.
  11. For me it was one of the easiest drivers to hit straight that I've ever played. It has near Ping G400Max levels of MOI and the spin wasn't too high. I did have to play it down a degree in loft compared to what I would normally play but you can swing as hard as you want and it will try and go straight.
  12. Hasn't arrived yet but will be my gamer when it shows up
  13. I was hoping to have tested the Taylormade SIM driver with this shaft this past weekend before posting my review on the main page but unfortunately we were rained out by a tropical storm. I'm hoping to have the SIM head tested this week though and you can read my initial main review here.
  14. I have an Odyssey V line if this style interests you? Shoot me a PM.
  15. You're talking about one person vs. thousands of orders. It's not exactly the same thing. In that same logic, club companies wouldnt need to stock the tour vans and not give the pros their clubs right away either. Imagine telling Bryson, Lexi and Rickie their new driver will arrive in 4-5 weeks. It's the same with Golf Pride. They're advertising like crazy on social media and showing boxes of grips on Tour vans and yet they can't keep a Golf Galaxy stocked. It's annoying to see but unfortunately is how it is right now.
  16. I'd also recommend the AVX. I found the flight too low for me but can vouch for it doing what it advertises. I do wish it was firmer though.
  17. I may have to try out the Nippon with the Tour Edge Pro head myself this weekend.
  18. I bought these about a month ago and they're awesome. Was able to get a wide size as well. You'll definitely enjoy them.
  19. I'm finally getting out to play again tomorrow and will be trying the shaft out in a Honma TW747 455 driver head. Can't wait to see how that combo works out.
  20. Added some headcovers to the collection. Taylormade killed it with the PGA Championship covers and the Arby's is just hilarious
