  1. The only thing stranger was this:
  2. Helium Black Wood Shafts | UST Mamiya
  3. The current price of a new 0211 driver is $249. With that price comes with a Evelflow Riptide shaft. Never had/tried a PXG driver so I'm jumping in. Read some reviews on youtube...seems to be a sold deal.
  4. As usual, my typical luck or should I say no-luck. Oh well, maybe next year!
  5. With COVID and everything being closed as far as testing goes, I am relegated to just doing on course testing for now. It's kind of hard to get a sense of spin when you really don't have grass on the greens and flight is hard to gauge when the fairway is dormant and almost bare. Even with the temperatures in the mid 40's, and with the conditions I'm playing with, I am still very, very pleased with the shafts. Light and flexible enough for a kick, but still have some tip firmness to them to help with dispersion. They will be tested further in Florida in a few months and I will still repor
  6. For those who haven seen the informercial:
  7. I played another 18 today(weather was 58* but a little windy..got to play when you can). I won't belabor with a blow by blow just that everything I have said before about these shafts still hold true, especially the high launch. The fairways were almost worthless to hit off of(bare dormant ground) so hitting them from the rough is a plus and that's where I got the high launch from. These launch every bit and then some as compared to my MMT shafts. At 68.5 grams, to launch this high and be stable is an accomplishment. Even for slow swingers like myself, these shafts deliver the flex and k
  8. I'm going to turn this around a bit and not make it about stronger lofts, but is it HARDER to hit stronger lofted irons than the standard loft? I'm thinking that it is. If my loft for a 7i is 31* it's almost a club drop for a game improvement stronger lofted iron, and no matter how much I like the irons if my weakness is long irons then certainly a lot of the newer game improvements irons would not be a benefit. I do though understand the benefit and tech of game improvement irons but is the tech enough to overcome my long iron weakness?
  9. I wound up playing 27 holes within the past 2 days. One was a scramble and the other was just 9 holes. During the scramble, the majority of shots were 7i on down. I hit maybe one 6i and and 2 5i shots. I'm still amazed on how stable the long irons are. Ever though I play to an R flex, I was really swinging hard just to see if they would flex too much and caused me to slice, they didn't! With the short irons, it was just high and straight. Now I'm not a big worker of the ball so I don't know how they will be if your trying to fade or draw the ball. If you prize your shots to be straight an
  10. Played 9 again today...very crowded and had commitments so no 18 today but will get 18 in tomorrow. This is kind of like a rinse and repeat from my first testing. These shafts play solid almost to the point of me asking myself why did I go with steelfibers if these are so easy to hit? Just getting a nice high flight, no distance lost maybe even a slight gain, along with a good feel. It was very windy today so I didn't have my best swing or accuracy with them. I let my buddie hit a couple. He plays to a 20 hdcp. I thought that he would have issues hitting my irons(CF16) which were sm
  11. I can't speak for ZMendle10, but as for me it was a one to one replacement. My steelfiber shafts that were taken out of my CF16's were SW at D1. The Zelos 6 irons were installed by Nippon without grips, I had a buddy install grips (GP MCC+4) he had no way of checking the SW so they are as they are.
  12. For me, I could tell during the transition that the shaft had some flex compared to my steelfibers, but in all honesty, swinging through the ball I really couldn't tell that much difference between the Zelos 6 and my steelfibers.
