    I had the same change! Ball flight is lower and with a draw vs my normal fade. I haven’t been able to get out for a month due to my shoulder but should get back into after the new year

    I was hitting it lower, but a change in tee height has improved launch. I’m really happy with the trajectory, just need to remember to change my aim on the tee.

    Hope your shoulder comes back well, make sure you do your rehab religiously (talking from experience here👍)

  2. Still getting used to the 849 Pro. Definitely enjoying it. My ball flight has changed to a reasonably consistent high gentle draw.  I got into trouble a few times during my last round by taking the wrong line. Starting left edge of the fairway to allow for the fade doesn't work with the draw!  20 mph wind from the right didn't help either. Getting good distance, and continue to be impressed with how it performs into strong wind. Spin must be low, as I'm yet to see any hint of ballooning.

  3. I'm really enjoying putting the 849 Pro through it's paces. Settled on the weight and loft combination that seems to fit me best. Starting to form some conclusions, just need a few more rounds to solidify things.

  4. Got another 9 holes in. On a golfing journey the weekend to replace an annual trip that has been cancelled due to COVID. Playing 4 or 5 country courses. Should have a good idea how the 849 Pro performs after that, as long as my body holds up.

  5. My intro is up. Played 9 holes with the 849 Pro on Monday. Good swings give good results, of course it didn't make up for a couple of horrible swings.  Was getting good distance and accuracy. I think once we get to know each other we could have a lot of fun😉

  6. Taking the 849 Pro out on course for the first time over the next 2 days. Wasn’t making great contact in the net, but after gripping down a bit was making consistent centre face contact. It’s the same length as my current driver,but it’s shaft is counter balanced. Going to do the odds vs evens with each driver, such a good idea, wish I’d thought of it

  7. It’s on the way! Not sure how long it will take to get here, but got notified this morning that it’s coming. 

    I’ve gone with a 10.5 Head with a Project X Evenflow Riptide 6.0 60gm. I’ve had Evenflow Blue shafts in my fairways for a while now and really like how they match my swing. From what I’ve read the Riptide should suit me well too.

    Looking forward to putting in some range time to find my best loft/face angle/weight combinations to optimise my settings. My clubs range has Toptracer, so comparisons between settings should be easy to see.


    Very much looking forward to testing this driver.

  8. Not sure if this will show up, but I.m in. Despite not being sure if I’m a “better” player” this sounds like a very interesting driver. Pretty sure that Jason from Sub70 will be involved in the fitting process, which will make the test even more interesting for both testers and readers.

  9. I’m in, not sure if I fit the better player profile though🤔. The shaft options look great, and all I’ve heard about Sub 70 is that Jason really knows his stuff. Pretty sure he will be directly involved through the process which will be very cool.

    That process started hours after sign up opened. Don't you worry we are on it and have been working on that consistently throughout the days as signups have come in! 

    As the previous 76er's teams would say "Trust the process".

    Hope your process is better than the '76ers 😅

    Unfortunately only a few do.

    I hope the mods have a way of filtering out all the applicants who aren't even signed up to the forum or aren't active. If it's a manual process the next models might be released before they wade through all of these applications.

    Problems with new Test Opportunities setup.

    Anyone else having difficulties with the "comments" tab opening. It takes twice going through finding and clicking on "comments" tab for it to actually open that tab instead of switching back to "Reviews". And then when I click on a page number at any time (like choosing to go to the last comment), it switches back to the "Reviews" tab and I must go through the process again.

    I'm not convinced that anyone else on the forum (outside of us PuttOUT reviewers, our moderator and one other, @Superjoemofo) are receiving notifications or seeing  any of our posts. Do they even know about the new review posting setup? I don't receive a notification when you guys post on this review/comments and I've checked my settings. But I still receive notifications on other forum streams that I follow.

    I just had the same problem, perhaps message @GolfSpy_APH or post something in the suggestion box

    Really interested in how these putters and the fitting woks. I won't be applying as no fitters in Australia and I think it's best for the review to include the whole process. Good luck to the applicants, should be a very worthwhile review for MGS readers

    Every time I see another notification for this post the chorus from "All out of love" by Air Supply starts going off in my head.


    ...I wish I was kidding...

    One of Australia’s most disappointing exports.  Due to his hat, @MattFhas got them covered

    My local range just send out an email that they are hosting a Cobra fitting day next Monday.  I called an reserved my spot -- just in case 😎

    I’m booking a lesson later this week, with e really experienced fitter. If the timing is right I would happily change from lesson to fitting if need be. 😁 I miss the Cobra demo day he is hosting by a day as I’m flying home on Saturday when it’s on. Regardless of the Cobra Connect 5 outcome I would have loved to have tried the Cobra gear out in one sitting (perhaps that should be one swinging)
