  1. Really well. The Tour X 85s are in my Hybrid and long irons. The driver shafts I have been swapping in a few different ones and cant decide which one will stay. I've had three in the new KE4 TC driver head. When I get home again I'll have a shaft shootout between the Pro TSL, Pro T6☆ and the Superlite55. Three completely different builds and feels. It will come down to dispersion. I hit all three well so it's a good problem to have. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  2. The gift that can transform your game and keep giving is the Launch Monitor home studio. Everything else has a unique draw to it but the best money spent will be the LM. Knowing exactly how far your balls are going is invaluable. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  3. As a true club ho for the first time I've got that damn near perfect bag. The recent KE4 TC driver not withstanding I'm finding not a single need. With the KE4 filling the top spot in a spectacular way everything else seems just right. I may just swap grips out to the CP2 Pro midsize and call it good for the year Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  4. I'm surprised the TP5X did not meet your needs. Since you had already gamed the TP5 the X is just a bit firmer. I found off the driver and full iron shots it flies high and straight with not a ton of spin. Yet when really clipped with a wedge it can stop on a dime. I'll repeat what a few have already said. The AVX is a premium ball that has less spin everywhere. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  5. So now we are entering big boy territory. A friend of mine is a Taylor Made pro and he can hit near 120 in his swing speed. I put together a brand new KE4 head with the Tensi Blue S tipped and inch. 45" long set to standard loft. Now he owns the simulator and had seen his fair share of numbers from the flight scope. These numbers eclipse what he has seen before. Six swings, and all in ridiculously long territory. All were very playable. He said if he did not have a contract that he would game this club right away. 338 yards and he wasnt even warmed up. It was shocking to see what he could do with this driver. After this bomb show I took that club out on my local course. Temps were 40-45 and the sun was out so I played 18. What I saw was straight as an arrow flight that just kept on going. Ball after ball was just a wow type of flight. One of my playing partners has been bombing past me the past few years and now we were dead even but I was in the middle of the fairway and he was in the weeds. I hit a couple of drives that would qualify for course long drives for me. On 17 I hit a drive and damn near drove into the group in front of us. The guys at the next tee remarked they have never seen a ball hit there. THIS IS A LEGIT DRIVER HEAD. This has me more excited that the TS iron launch. I implore you guys to check out this head.

  6. Again today I had some gaps in simulator appointments so I did a very long head to head with the KE4 and the ISO-T. Other than a slight fade bias to the ISO-T the performance is negligible. Though the KE4 is setup as an ultralight ball speed and launch are extremely close. I'm really not sure I can make a clear choice between the two. Here are two back to back shots. First picture is of the ISO-T. Next of course is the KE4 and a picture of the range session spread. You will see how consistent the distances were. Yes there is some dispersion but this was just letting the two of them rip. Just about everyone would be in play. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  7. Spent some time with both the KE4 and the ISO-T. I like that the KE4 seems to keep my fade miss from showing up when I'm out on the toe side. Ball speed may be just a touch higher with the KE4. About 10 balls a piece and the KE4 average was just a bit higher but the ISO-T trumped it on a session long. But the push right miss shows up with the ISO-T more. ISO-T has a better feel to it, no mistaking that. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  8. Had a young up and coming jr golfer today who swung at 100mph. His gamer was a custom fit M5. He gained 4 mph in ball speed with the KE 4 TC with the Xcaliber TSL shaft. This driver continues to really impress me and others who hit it. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  9. Spent some time in the sim and did more working on the swing than anything but also was swapping in and out of some shafts. Swing had a lot of funk in it early and the be fair the ISO-T didnt get enough time and was quickly put aside. In the graph the top spot was the KE4 with an Xcaliber PRO TSL in TS which is a sub 50 g shaft but built like a diamana white board. The other two were two different sessions of the same Superlite55. The TSL was a super low spin setup. My carry distances seemed to be way off and when I switched simulators they were right where I expected to see them along with overall distances. On this graph the overall distances seemed right. The drop in spin was drastic. Along with a much lower launch. I'm waiting on other adapters to really have a shaft shootout. But a quick look has the TSL as a great setup. On the other simulator the carry distances were just shy of 280 with 293-5 overall. With matching spin numbers and low 160 ball speed. When I went to the second sim my swing was also much better. Hope to have the shootout Saturday if the adapters show up. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  10. I will say the SIM feels better that the M5. I would never call the M5 a good feeling driver. The SIM is better by a lot. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  11. I'm picking up a Tensi Blue, I have three other. Xcaliber shafts and a Paderson. I need a few more adapters though. The adapters are exclusive to Maltby. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  12. I've compared it to the ISO-T and it certainly more forgiving. It seems to launch higher as well yet keeps spin down. I also did an informal against a Titlist TS2 loves the feel of the titleist but I got better numbers on the KE4. I'm kind of scratching my head on what to compare it to. It's kind of unique. Fins are sort of Ping. The wrap around crown is like a TM. Feel might be like a Callaway. Nothing about it makes it jump out at you in comparison. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  13. Later this week I'll be throwing a few different shafts in the KE4 TC and see what it does for spin and launch. With ball speeds of 165 its just begging for a 13-14 degree launch. Trust me I'm not complaining about a 280 carry but I'm just scratching the surface of what this head has in it. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  14. A rapid taper iron shaft that has been testing through the roof. I'll have it in my hands tomorrow. It's been a freak shaft in that so many people who hit it could play it. It seems to fit a wide spectrum. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  15. I think I am. I hope to do a long session between the two but the consistent flight of the KE4 is just awesome. The ISO-T outdoors last year was silly long. But it wasnt the easiest to control. If I can carry 280 and be down the middle I'll give up any 300+ yard driver. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
