  1. Assuming that the landing angle is very similar, then Brand Y is my choice; more ball speed, spin and carry.
  2. I have been playing the 50 gram version of this shaft going on three years. Love it. Backstory is I was fitted into a Mavrik 10.5 with the regular Riptide 50 (not counter balanced). My gamer at the fitting was an Epic with the Fujikura Pro 63. I went back and forth between the 60 and 50 gram non counter balanced versions of the Riptide several times. The 50 gram was the clear winner even though I thought it was too light for me. The Pro 63 contrary to its name is 67 grams. When I purchased from Callaway Preowned, I saved enough to get the Riptide CB 50. I compared it to the 60 gram non counter balanced Riptide that came in the driver. Again the 50 gram won out over the 60 gram. This time it was the 50 CB vs non-counter balanced 60. Always wondered how the 60 gram CB would be.
  3. My Titleist T200 irons have a 43 PW and 48 GW, so 5 degrees there. I also play a 54 and 60 SM8. I do not notice any issues, but approach shots are not my strength. The 54 was the result of only being able to find that wedge grind and bounce in the 54. I think we are all faced with partial approach shots, some more than others. Learning your wedge set distances may be more important than the specific degree gaps.
  4. Steve Indiana 9 Ping i210/DG 120 S 300 i500 Recently fitted into the i210s and have played about 6 rounds with them, but Ping's nFlight Web suggested the i500s. I am getting older, so the distance may be the better choice. Would love to put my i210s against i500s for an extended and detailed comparison to see which would become the gamers. Thanks for all you do to make us more informed and knowledgeable golfers!
  5. Steve/Indiana 63/8.8 Ping S56/4 - PW I just ordered i210s 5 - GW to replace the S56s. This opportunity is custom made for me. I just retired a few weeks ago and have the time to dedicate. My first set of irons was the Ben Hogan Apex II. I still regret trading them in, I remember them as the best feeling irons I have ever played. I have tried many since that first set.

  7. I would love this chance to compare this driver to my Callaway Epic. I suspect based on tests by MyGolfSpy that I was fitted into the regular Epic when I should have been fitted into the Sub-Zero version.

  8. Steve Indiana,USA Do not use performance tracking. Do not use a GPS watch. But, would love to try it and focus my practice.
  9. Steve from Indiana Driver: Callaway Epic 10.5 degree 3 Metal: Callaway Big Bertha 15 degree Hybrid: Nickent 3DX Ironwood DC 20 degree Irons: Callaway XR Pros Wedges: Callaway Mack Daddy Forged 56 and 60 Putter: Odyssey White Hot Pro 7 Index: 8 Since I am retiring the end of May, I will have time to play, practice, second guess equipment and reduce my handicap to at least a 3, which is one stroke lower than my previous low of 4. I have not had time to practice the last several seasons, but that all changes for 2018. I will also have plenty of time to keep everyone informed of my progress even if that means another social media account. I definitely appreciate data, I am a retiring IT professional. Keep up the great work done at MyGolfSpy!
