  1. Rod Rockville, IN Cobra F9 Index: 8 100 mph TSi2
  2. Avon Chamois aren't a bad choice either. And they're a little bit old school...
  3. I'm looking at putting some new shafts in an old reliable set of heads. My current gamers have FST Pro 125s. A little extra trajectory wouldn't hurt me any, and I could easily add some tip weights to get the swingweight up near normal. But how much trajectory difference would I see between the Pro 125s and the Pro 115s?
  4. I've used Slighter for a refinish and a custom build. Tom is a great guy and does great work. On the custom build he actually called me to ask a couple questions to make sure he made exactly what I wanted.
  5. Practice is never a bad thing. Wish I could hit more balls myself. My suggestion would be to just avoid using a 3 wood from a downhill lie. You don't even see the pros do it very often. It's a low percentage shot and difficult to pull off. Even a 4 iron from a downhill lie is difficult. Either use a shorter iron or a fairway wood with more left. On a downhill lie, more loft is very much your friend.
  6. Rod P from Rockville, Indiana Gaming an old Golfsmith Zebra Would love to try a lefty Ketsch
  7. Not to mention that the Recoils are a pretty recent design with a nice following. If it works and it's available, no reason not to go for it.
  8. You should also check out Robin Arthur's Xcaliber shafts. I have a set of the ProX 105s in my sticks and I love them. They no longer make the 105, so you'd have to go to the 95 or 85. But that man designs some great shafts, Xcalibers are the real deal.
  9. Thanks for the insight. My friend casts the club from the top of the backswing, and it's visible watching him hit balls. He's had a lesson focused on that, but he can't seem to change anything. I've tried to help, giving him a few drills to help, but he just can't get out of the habit. So it's a constant battle against the banana.
  10. I recently acquired an F9, have played 18 holes, and hit several balls in my net in the backyard. Absolutely no damage to any balls. For all of the testing OEMs do, I can't imagine any of them would release a new club that caused that kind of damage. They do too much testing and do too much research to release a new product that caused this kind of damage. It would destroy their image and reputation. And especially in the economy and times we're in, that would be a terrible, foolish, and financially catastrophic error.
  11. Rod in Rockville Indiana. Currently playing some old Infiniti wedges. Would test a lefty 56
  12. Yes it does seem strange. I just think a higher launching shaft would be good for me, and I like the Evenflow idea / design concept, and they're available on eBay.
  13. Curious...I have a good friend playing a G15 who fights a banana. He casts the club from the top and getting him out of that move seems difficult at best. How much yardage gain and how much fade reduction do you think he would gain? Is the new driver that much longer?
  14. No, they make a red version that's high launch. It might be a made-for version that TaylorMades uses, not sure exactly. But I'm probably going to try a high launching shaft in my recently acquired F9.
