  1. I spoke with Austin today as well. Very nice guy. Made me feel jealous about the west coast weather when it’s going feel like 6 here tomorrow morning! I told him my last 3 shafts were the Aldila Rogue Silver 70X, Evenflow Black 75X and the Atmos Black 7X all tipped 1” and he immediately went to the F1 7X. He said that we should tip this one as well. I did make sure to ask him about the potential of what the F3 might do and besides a slight spin and launch increase, he said that I would see more right to left movement and that quickly shut down the rest of that discussion! :) Because my Cortex swing weights pretty high, I’m curious how a non counter balanced shaft is going to make the head feel. Final specs on the shaft coming are as follows: Motore X F1 7X Tipped 1” Playing length at 45.25” MCC standard grip with 3 wraps total Now we play the waiting game!

  2. Great. I guess I will wait for the call again tomorrow! I wonder why they wouldn't leave a message
  3. Just out of curiosity, do you know where the call was from? I had two missed calls from Georgia today while I was my daughter at the dentist. I think that Fuji would leave a voicemail, but I know those guys are busy! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. I think that I will be an F1 but after watching the video with the golficity guys, my mind is open! I’m curious to how the phone fitting will go. I heard nothing but great things about the Evnroll phone fittings last year! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. This is my first testing opportunity so I'm pretty excited and a little nervous! The bar has been set very high by other testers and I hope to live up to that!
  6. Finally got a chance to test these out on Saturday. They definitely aren't the softest forgings in the world. You won't confuse these with Miura's any time soon. However, the feel and sound meshes very well with the Staff Model blades. It has a solid "crack" at impact. Spin was excellent. 10+ with the 50 degree and with the the High Toe 56 I was getting around 7500 on half and 3/4 shots. The High Toe seems to have a smaller footprint that either the PM grind or the TM version, which I like. I wish there were more grind options, but the 56 High toe's leading edge sat close enough to the ground for me that I don't worry about it. It will be replacing my RTX 4 two dot (which I never really got along with because it skimmed too easily through the sand leading to bladed shots) with the High Toe. The standard 50 and 60 will be in the bag as well. I might have to grind down the 60 a little bit, but the first shot hit the flag from 50 yards so maybe not lol
  7. If you’re heeling the ball often, did you try a shorter shaft? That could help with the heel miss. Don’t forget if you see the ball falling out of the sky early, try adding some loft. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. Ryan/Michigan Rogue Silver 70X tipped 1” 115-118 I like the spin and launch of my current shaft, but I would like to improve my dispersion. Yes I have access to foresight GC2 and trackman. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. Yeah your spin/launch combination is way too high. If it’s landing at 45 with that much spin, you’re probably losing a yard or two from it backing up on impact. Just an FYI ad 45 degree landing angle is great for a 7 iron. I would start with loft, but you might have a shaft issue as well. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Wear everything that you normally do to play golf (gloves, shoes, etc.). Also, bring your current club that you’re testing against. Plus, be ready to hit 50-100 balls without getting too fatigued. You don’t want to be 25 shots in and getting tired and end up with a bad fit. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I read that the sole is fairly narrow in the 60, but with 10 degrees of bounce. Does the leading edge sit fairly close to the ground or is it more similar to the current PMP standard grind option? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. When is embargo day? Also, is that a good mmmm or a bad mmmm? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. I’m hoping there is a new full line up coming with some better grind options! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. How were the KBS 610 on the shorter, touch shots? I liked the overall weight and balance of it, but I hit a lot of half wedge shots and I was wondering if the shaft responds well in those situations. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. When I hear major brand, does that include Hogan and Sub 70? Sorry if that was covered. I don’t really do the podcast thing either. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. I’m curious to see how this goes for you. I remember when Rose switched, he said this was the biggest surprise. I think that he had every intention of keeping the Taylormade in the bag, until he hit this. Also, I’m curious how the Vizard shaft performs. If I remember correctly Honma and Vizard are in the same boat as Srixon where they directly control the Miyazaki options. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  17. So I’m a new high school coach and I was thinking about purchasing the whole program. They are offering a 20 or 25% off coupon recently. I’m a former college baseball player so I know my way around the weight room. The question is, is it worth buying the program or just putting together my own work out regimen? Are there enough resources out there on the web? Any and all recommendations would be appreciated! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  18. I definitely want to see these in the black finish from last year Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  19. They are definitely on a two year cycle with the forged tec Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. Sorry no luck on the lefty version of the hot metal pro. The hot metal line is in that game improvement area. Even the pro in that model still provides a lot of forgiveness. The Apex Pro fits more into the MP line from Mizuno. Good luck with the search! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. How about the hot metal pro? The shape is a little closer to the Apex and might give you the best of both worlds. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. It’s possible, but I would never clamp anywhere near that high when doing a regrip. Cracking a shaft was always my biggest worry when doing grips. Luckily in 6 years no issues. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  23. Never heard of anyone having complaints, besides vision, going from one color to another. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  24. Sweet sticks! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
