    Report back after your trip, please. I expect to be in a similar situation in that area in August, so I'm interested in your experience.

    Will do, won’t be headed there til this coming weekend May 7-9

    I posted earlier but added that pic just now, that's the top of "morgan Hill" it really is a unique course and worth playing. You really can't go wrong with any of the courses listed. I think Architects is the clear top dog in that area but others are still above average. For making the decision depends on what you're looking for, walking or riding?  Difficult or traditional, flat(ish) or mountain golf. Let us know what you decide and hopefully the weather cooperates. 


    I’ll be going solo so something enjoyable but not an extremely difficult course

    Not sure if you are working with and instructor or not. Here’s a video that might help if you aren’t.


    I have been, golftec. He yells at me for overswing every day. He says it’s purely a miracle that I get my hands through (which says is hard part)

    The chart is showing how much more the mid and butt sections of the green 6.5tx is stiffer than black as you go from the tip to the butt.

    PX stated when the 6.5tx game out it was designed to reduce spin for the strongest of swingers. Usually not a profile that fits swing speeds under 110 and/or those with smooth transition/tempo

    Gotcha, I am right around that 110 but my transition is very quick so we’ll see how I score with it, I can always go back

    Not surprised you feel it to be heavier your smoke black 6.0 if it’s the 60g version weight 59g uncut and has a torque of 3.5, if it’s the 70g version then it’s same torque and 68g uncut.

    the green 6.5tx 60g version is 3.0 torque which doesn’t seem like a lot but for some can dramatically change the feel and weighs 65g uncut. If it’s the 70g version then it’s 2.8 and 74g.

    The harder to get around also not surprising especially if you have an over the top swing which based on your comment about spin is probably the case. 

    Without seeing video of your swing with the black and again with the green it doesn’t sound like the green is helping you not make this ott move as you say the ball is still going high and that you have lost more yardage. 

    here’s a pic comparing shaft profiles. The original hzrdus black and smoke black really didn’t change in overall profile. pX just softened the shaft a bit with the smoke version. You can see how much stiffer the tx is and how different is it from the non green rx version.



    I will try to get rapsodo tomorrow when I play see if I can get the video. I am losing distance but it’s ending up straighter than before. 

    also I don’t understand that chart at all

  6. @RickyBobby_PR So after a solid range session the driver is set at B1 and the 6.5Tx shaft is definitely heavier and harder to get around but it is going much straighter with only about 10 yards loss.

    For some reason the rapsodo wasn’t picking my swings as much, I think the phone was in low power mode. Still hitting the ball high.

    Depends on if you have the swing speed to launch a ball with a shaft that stiff; I swing +115 and couldn’t really get the flight I wanted with it. Might depend on how you load it and how aggressively you transition...

    Very aggressive transition

    Shafts don’t significantly reduce spin by themselves. If someone hits down on the driver going to a lower spinning shaft is still going to cause high sling because of how the club is being delivered. 

    Black 6.0 to smoke green 6.5tx is a big jump in stiffness and profile. Will be curious to see what you think of that shaft and how it affect your swing and ball flight 


    going to the range tomorrow to find out. Swinging it just in back yard I like how it feels heavier and more stout

    Ooof. That’s tough. Were you fitted for the shaft as well? A steep angle of attack would certainly contribute to higher spin numbers.  

    I have the TS2, and it’s currently at the D2 ... but that’s mainly to assist me with a more upright lie. My standard iron specs are 2° upright with +1 inch on the shafts. 

    They put me in the smoke black 6.0, I recently ordered the Smoke Green 6.5tx which is supposedly a spin killer! 

    again lessons and fixing my swing is the longer term goal, just frustrating when I shoot a 97 and the majority comes from trying to recover from the tee shot being way right

    It definitely does; spin loft number is one to pay attention to. You hitting down on the ball with a driver is creating more spin, which isn’t helping your slice.

    The gentleman fitting me said I was getting 7 iron spin numbers with driver 


  10. Agree with everyone on lessons.  I’ve gone to Golftec for lessons and planning on going again. Just still not good.

    Unless you have a very flat swing plane, the A3 setting that you had your adapter set at SHOULD have resulted in more of a right-to-left (or center-to-left) shot pattern than the B4 setting.  This is due to the significantly more-upright lie angle that the A3 setting will give you.  Your results with it set to B4 are more than a bit baffling to me (I am a Professional Clubfitter, with more than 32 years experience)

    This is why I lm here because I was confused.


    also I have steep attack angle if that matters

    For some reason OEMs don’t like to advertise how lowering and raising loft changes face angle. 

    General rule of thumb to remember is going down in loft opens the face and going up in loft closes the face. 

    Did he say why he put you in the flat setting?

    He did not mention the flatter part. I just thought I knew the chart and why I question it here because I know this group knows a lot more 

  12. 3 minutes ago, jlukes said:

    The chart is pretty straightforward. It tells you what the most draw setting is with A3. Lofting up as in B4 closes the face a little which helps with a slice but the flatter lie angle could potentially move your start line further right. So more loft closing the face and a flatter lie angle could potentially mitigate a pull-slice

    Did you ask the fitter why he chose B3? You really need to communicate and ask questions to the salesperson or fitter helping you so you can understand why they’re making certain adjustments. 

    I did and he said because it closes the face 2 degrees, which made sense but I didn’t see the degrees closing on the site 

  13. Just picked one up and absolutely love it. While the ball tracer outside wasn’t the most accurate (I’m guessing due to the sun being directly at us at the rang) 

    The distance data was within 5 yards or so.


    I think the biggest advantage is the shot replay, I can see where my flaw in the swing was with the last shot while I’m trying to change up my swing
