    If it feels dead then there might be a crack somewhere or damage.
    faces get hotter over time so a dead feeling is like some kind of breakage kr maybe the contact point has changed from to be farther from center.
    Spray the face with foot powder spray and see where contact is being made

    My best recommendation is to get fit by a good professional fitter then find the clubs that work best for you whether DTC or quality used.  There are really a lot of options out there.

    Save yourself the money and go to Lowe’s or Home Depot and buy the cheap orange driveway lining sticks. You can buy 5-6 for the price of “real” alignment sticks and they do the same thing. Just my $0.02.

    It would be helpful if you could show us the Trackman report. Details on how to do this here.
    Trackman is extremely accurate, but as @cnosil said, there are a lot of settings and requirements. Where are you hitting on a Trackman? Depending on that, a worker/coach should be able to confirm its set up properly.
    If you're a really high speed player, like 115+ mph swing, I have heard instances where Trackman might randomly double the spin, especially on driver, which causes the distance to go way down. But that seems like an edge case which doesn't happen very often.
    I can confirm my distances are dead-on in real life and on the Trackman.

    Brian A reacted to BMart519 in AVX vs Left Dash   
    I have done a lot of experimenting with balls, used to predominantly play Bridgestone but also got along well with Srixon Z star as a low spin option. After the MGS ball testing I ordered some Left Dash balls for maximum potential distance (and needing higher flight) along with the Taylormade Tour Response as lowest spin urethane ball (and later the AVX). Fade/slice is also my miss with driver. The Left Dash/AVX are my main balls for 2024 with the Pro V1 as backup for very firms greens if I need extra stopping power, or the Tour Response if the greens are very slow or I am playing bad and don't want to lose expensive balls.  Here's what I have found:
    - the low spin balls like AVX (Tour Response, especially) tend to go a bit straighter off the tee, the lower flight and/or spin also helps on tee shots into wind which can make them play a similar distance to the left dash (driver SS tops out at 107 for me, likely more around 103-105)
    - had my best round last year with the Tour Response - very straight, stayed out of trouble, the extreme low spin adds 5-10 yards distance to irons (which can offset driver loss in some situations), only downside is they won't work well on firm greens. Began testing the AVX last year as a small step up in terms of low spin urethane ball and saw positive results. Especially like these 2 in windy conditions where getting the ball on the ground quicker can be a benefit. 
    - when it is hot, (over 70) you can see more separation in distance and this is where the left dash really starts to shine. They do perform well into a head wind with the low-mid spin. I have hit multiple 250 yard tee shots with 19 degree hybrids using left dash, it is definitely one of the longest balls made.

    Brian A reacted to GregGarner in AVX vs Left Dash   
    I've had the same question before, especially because I tend to hit it pretty dang high (about 105-110 swing speed). The AVX generally works well for me, but I can't get used to how squishy it feels. The Left Dash works great for me with the exception that I wish it flew a little lower. In terms of distance off the tee, I don't really see a significant difference between the two. The AVX is lower spinning than Left Dash, so it can compensate for any speed loss from the lower compression, or at least that's how I've thought about it.
    And FWIW, when I last did Ballnamic, it recommended both the AVX and the Left Dash for me (in addition to the Tour BX), so basically it seems like it's more of a "pick the ball you want" scenario.

    I got the same results but when I asked about left dash/dot he said they don’t fit for those.  I liked the low spin/trajectory of AVX,

    I have a friend that is 10-15 mph faster than you that plays the avx and has no issues with it.

    Curious to know how the spin affects trackman distances. I have a steep AoA which creates a lot of backspin and am using the RCT balls. I struggle to hit the driver 210 or more on the TM but on course (using Arccos) I am usually a 250ish yard drive. Is there some setting I am missing with the trackman or does it over penalize for the high spin rates? This is also consistent across all clubs, usually have to hit a club or 2 clubs stronger for TM distances vs what I would real life.
