  1. I play mine with the titanium sole plate and the weights set in the fade position. I get low spin with high launch. It also the most anti-hook driver I've tried which keeps it in the bag. I tried several drivers last year, with the longest being the EPIC SZ, but I hit the Triton so much straighter and consistent. Golf is much easier when you can keep your drives in play. I like the heavier swingweight of the titanium plate which is why I went that option. The Triton plays at D8 with my configuration but I love it, especially for the $75 I spent on it.

  2. I picked up a brand new Wilson Triton on Monday for $75 at Dick's Sporting Goods. I put it in play Wednesday and hit it better than any driver I've used this year. It wasn't the longest I've hit but it was the straightest and most consistent. Hitting approach shots from the fairway or light rough is a lot easier than the trees for some reason.
  3. I had no interest in the Wilson Triton but I was in Dick's Sporting Goods a few days ago and they had them brand new on the clearance rack for $75. For that price, I couldn't resist. After hitting it on the range exceptionally well yesterday, I took a sick day from work today to try it on the course with a buddy. I had one of my best driving days of the year. I didn't hit it longer than anything else I've had in the bag, but it was the most consistent driving I might have ever had. It seems to be anti-hook for me which I love and I found so many fairways. I may have found my new gamer for $75! Great driver!!

    Ping G400

    So, just to update everyone on the problem I had above, my fitter sent the head back in for repair and it came back a couple of weeks later with a new tungsten tab installed. So far I've hit a ton of balls with it and I've had no issues. I ordered it with the Tour 65 shaft but didn't like the dispersion I was seeing. My fitter let me try it with a Speeder VC 7.2 TS he had in the fitting room and it was night and day. With the Speeder shaft I'm hiting long straight bombs that carry forever. He traded me the shaft for free to help with my troubles. If anyone lives in the Charleston, SC area I highly recommend you go to David Ayres Lowcountry Custom Golf to get fitted for any clubs or get any club work done. They are the most knowledgeable people in the area and really care about helping you out.
  5. I've played with plenty of those types. A friend of mine invited a guy on a golf trip recently that claimed to a 5 handicap. There were 4 of us on the trip. As someone who drifts between and 8 and 9 handicap I figured he'd be pretty good. He did hit some really good shots but also hit some shots off the planet. He had no idea how to take a proper drop when he lost his ball and would usually end up just giving himself a drop in the fairway. His short game was all over the place. If his putt was within 10 feet, he normally just gave himself a gimme We played four rounds. In the first 2 rounds he shot around a 90 and I shot my typical 80 even with his misunderstanding of the rules. After that, we switched to a 2 man captains choice format for the final two rounds so we didn't have to listen to him complain about the courses not being fair and hearing him losing his temper. On one particular par 4 he hooked his 3 wood left and proceeded to slam his club into the ground on tee box until he'd made a hole about 5 inches deep. He was really pleasant (not at all) to play with for 3 days if you can imagine.
  6. While I kind of understand your logic, I also like to think about how far a club goes if I hit it a little harder or softer and how the ball reacts when I do that. For instance, I hit my gap wedge 110 and my PW 125, but I will often play my PW at 110 if I want to finesse the ball in to the hole and not produce as much spin. On the other end of the spectrum, I can swing a little harder at my wedge and get 130 out of it with more spin when I need to. To me, it would be better to write these type of things down in a book you carry, so you can consider all the distances and spin/flight possibilities of each club. I don't like to lock myself into saying "I hit this club this distance."

    Ping G400

    So, I picked up my Ping G400 LS driver on Saturday about a month after I ordered it. I had heard the LS heads were backordered for some reason and that some were being recalled. I hit it on the range Monday and Tuesday with no issues. Today, I took it back to the range, and after a few swings the glued in tungsten tab fell out and was nowhere to be found. I'm starting to understand why there was a recall and it took so long for the heads to ship. Ping has an issue here.
  8. The Srixon Z-Star XV is a great ball for a cheaper price that would probably give you what you need. I prefer the Taylormade TP5 myself. I've been using that ball for a few rounds now and I'm seeing great numbers off the driver with excellent spin around the greens. I tried the TP5x as well but that one seem to spin a little too low for me. I'm also testing the Vice Pro Plus right now and it's a great ball but I think it will play very similarly to the ProV1X in that you'll get great numbers in distance from the longer clubs but it doesn't spin as much around the greens.
  9. This will be a fun challenge to follow and I expect to see some great results from this driver. I switched to the F7+ not too long ago and through 4 rounds I've hit 69% of my fairways. This thing is one of the more accurate bombers I've seen.
  10. I think they look great! I'd love to give them a try. I'm hitting my Titleist AP2s awesome right now but sometimes I do miss the feeling of playing blades. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  11. Welcome! I grew up in a small town about 30 miles north of Grand Rapids, MI and now live in South Carolina. I love playing the courses in Michigan whenever I make it back to visit family. Great golf area! Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  12. Sounds like a good competitor to what's out there right now. There price point is solid as well.
  13. I played another 18 after work today with the F7+ and hit some serious bombs. The more I use this driver, the better I'm hitting it. I think part of it is how much I'm enjoying the HZRDUS Yellow shaft. Another thing I find interesting is that I ordered the driver .25 inches short assuming that would make it 45 inches since the specs on their website list it at 45.25". I put it up against my buddies 45 inch EPIC driver and my F7+ is a quarter inch shorter than his. I compared it against a couple of other drivers in my garage when I got home and it is indeed 44.75" now. Maybe that's why I'm hitting it so well. I'm seriously contemplating cancelling my Ping G400 LST pre-order at this point. This driver is just fun to use.
  14. Fireinthehole, Just curious, what shaft did you order with the EPIC and what are you going to replace it with?
