    Epic?

    Well, I ran out of time to make it to DSG to test the gamer vs the Epic... but, I am leaving for Pensacola in two weeks. It just so happens that there is an Edwin Watts or whatever they are called there. Planning on trying everything they have in stock, and I hope they have the TSi4...

    Epic?

    Well... it does seem plausible.

    We’ll see what the PXG does. I do know it is the shortest in distance our of any driver I’ve had.

    I wasn’t overly concerned with the SS because it was matching about what I was getting last season during the speed stick training, topped out at 120 with the driver and it went for a country mile... but I don’t trust LM data that the guy selling me the stuff tried to tell me that he plays blades...
  5. Shankster

    Epic?

    Yeah. It’s definitely preset at 1.4 smash

    Epic?

    The 317 ball was a SS of 119, smash of 1.40, the lowest SS was 107, but mostly in the 111-116 range.
  7. I was starting an acoustic guitar collection. I can’t ply very well, but I could jam out and make some noise. Sold them all (3) but I was about to pull the trigger on some seriously cool Martin’s, 0-15, and a little 4 string guitar.

    Epic?

    Yeah. My thoughts too, I asked the dude if they had it cranked up for sales, he promised me he didn’t... but you never know who’s telling the truth. I’m bringing my gamer on Wednesday. It was not fit to me, nor have I been anywhere near 300 carry with it since I bought it... but, those are similar numbers to what I used to get with my R1, that thing was a monster.

    Epic?

    Is it possible to gain 30 yards of carry with just a driver change? Is that real life?

    Epic?

    My average drives with the PXG are 265... longest of 305, down wind.

    Epic?

    Launch was in that magic 11.5-13.5 range for me too.
  12. Shankster

    Epic?

    162-167 ball speed. I hit the SIM 2, but didn’t take pictures. Not a one of them carried anywhere near the 300 mark. ghe real bad ones were out of play the 3000-5000spin...

    Hey Joe, I haven’t swung a driver since January, not the swing speed sticks until yesterday. Did a mini workout with the super speed sticks for 3-5 minutes and that was it. Yeah, they were high... everything was way right, but the way they had the shot scope set up I couldn’t swing “DTL” without taking out part of their fitting rack.

    Foz, I am an undergrad Bible student right now, 9 credits away from graduation. My masters will be a Masters of Divinity, focusing in Biblical studies. Eventually, I would like to take some archeological classes and go that route. But in the mean time I will be focusing on getting ordained, and hopefully become a Chaplain where I was called. If that ends up not being the way things shake out, I will be a pastor at a local church when I retire in 6 years from active duty. I really enjoy the academic study of the Bible, so that might lead to some sort of teaching abou
  15. It’s me, have a little down time, retirement wasn’t as cool as I thought.
  16. Got to watch the activities yesterday. I was pulling for Westy. But he will be my pick for the Masters, hopefully he can pull it off. And hopefully he earns a spot in the HOF regardless if he wins a major or not.

    Epic?

    Thanks. Can’t leave you guys, but I will be less active on here from time to time depending on the course load, I am up against an age limit, and I have absolutely zero room for a hiccup. I wanted to try the low spin version but I was short on time, I may try that one on Wednesday night.

    Been doing a little virtual of that... getting some practice with the M4 on COD mobile in my spare moments... but I doubt there is any hearing pro involved. Haha

    I might follow my dude Rahmbo. In all honesty, the only reason I have a bias against Callaway is because I broke a demo GBB back in 2001... had to spend my entire paycheck to replace the shaft... Who knows what lies ahead. I won’t be able to golf as much as I’d like this year, dual enrolled with 6 classes at once, plus a long work week... it isn’t going to get the attention that I normally would give. I have a 5 day break right now, and it is a huge relief to have a few days of “nothing”
  20. Shankster

    Epic?

    The guy handed it to me, I said no thanks... not really a Callaway guy... he said trust me... 16 in a row, a few big misses, but this thing hits my fade like I’ve never seen before. Trying to convince the wife that I need to “un-retire” from golf... shouldn’t take much maybe just a new Lexus or something.
  21. Shankster

    Epic?

    9° head with a Hazardous Smoke shaft in Stiff. This thing was nasty... 25 yards on the SIM 2.
  22. Let’s lock this one up. I had the other meme picked out from this scene, but I didn’t feel like getting banned when I changed my mind.
  23. Shankster

    Epic?

    Yeah... short lived retirement. But I must say.... I am over the moon impressed with the Callaway Epic Speed driver. I went to DSG tonight to “test the water”... the results... are enough to bring anyone out of retirement.
  24. Well, ladies and gentlemen... Today I went to the range full of excitement to hit a gold ball, but it was such a mess that I didn’t even make it thought the bucket of balls. My love for playing the game has been fading over the past few years... So, I think it is time for the sticks to collect dust in the shed for a while. Not sure what I am going to do, but I don’t see myself getting any enjoyment out of hacking my way around a course... I have enjoyed all of my time here, and would gladly dust them off to play a round with anyone on here, but I will be limiting my cameos
