  1. The Nike slingshot comes to mind. Not in a good way. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  2. I played so much outdoors that I didnt get near the monitor. I'll say this. The Alpha was and is a great club. The KE4 was just better in sound feel and flight. Subtle but definite differences. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  3. I thought the BX and the BXs played very similar with only the feel being different BX seemed just a bit longer off the driver. At times if I sosnt k how which ball I was getting I couldnt tell a difference. Both balls near the green are stellar. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

  7. It's simply amazing the way people are complaining about this show. It has been amazing since the very first episode a decade ago. Why cant people just be entertained for an hour on a Sunday night with out dissecting every little branch of an extremely winding story line. It has to end one day and the original writer I believe isnt even involved at this point. It has always been agonizing at how long it's been between seasons. Just sit back and enjoy what's left. I dont get everything needing to be perfectly explained and played out. It would take another 20 episodes to tie in every thread together. Just let it end. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Ball change

    The only time I feel a wet course is very penalizing with a high spin ball is when you are pitching a ball and you hit the upslope of the green collar. That little area always holds water and will kill any ball, high spin or not. Beside that you just have to figure the ball is all carry with no roll out everywhere on the course which is no revelation. Just play the ball the feels best to you Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  9. I am using what I have left of the Xcaliber Tour X 85g iron shafts. I believe I'm switching to a Paderson or at least see how I like them. I have the Padersons in quite a few of my clubs now. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  10. I have the old 3 in the bag and a 2 some where in my cave. Look forward to picking up one of the new ones. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  11. Well... initial thoughts are what a club!! Built the 4 with a Paderson Kinetixx Launch FW shaft. The stock weight is in place and its 43" long with a CP2 midsize grip. Swing weight came to a C8. I put it up against my gamer Callaway Big Bertha Alpha. Weight fwd with a Kuro Cage FW shaft. Swingweight is D0. After a good warm up I started with the Callaway. A club I know and trust. It's been my go to,, to hold a tight fairway for quite a few years. Took note of the flight and where it was landing,, (no hard data yet). The sound is a bit tinny but nothing objective. Hitting my stock baby fade. Great club,, can get a bit squirrelly but always stayed in play. Next up was the KE4. Now I have not bagged a Maltby FW in a long time, since the Callaway actually. So I was very interested to see how this would fair. First off was the sound. A more muted sound than the tinny Callaway. When I say tinny it's more of like a high pitched click. The Ke4 has a much more pleasing sound. When i looked up to see the flight it was dead straight but where the Callaway reached an apex Maryland started to fall,, the KE4 would keep going. But it wasnt a low early Apex. It was the same height as the Callaway but it kept going. It was clearly sailing past the Callaway. Next was how straight it flew. Ball took off and held its line. Feel wise was just simply solid. Wasnt a feel like it was a hot face or the ball lept off the head.. just a solid feeling. Much later in the session when I was worn out I started to hit the ball all over the face. A few heel and a bad toe shot. They obviously lost distance and the heel shots had a big fade in them. But each one would have found the fairway. Very impressed with the forgiveness. Also the toe hit didnt turn into a snap hook, just the hint of a draw. I also threw a dozen balls in the deep cabbage,, and I mean deep... to see how it did. With a fairly heavy feel to the club it simply muscled the balls out. I was very surprised to see them get up and fly half way decent. This club does everything well but it might come out of the cabbage better than it should. Looking down at the club it has a nice, old school shape to it. More of the pear type of shape to it. Though it's a fairly shallow head the scallop on top makes it see bigger than it is but not in a bad way. Matby's new releases continue to be flat out amazing. I have been building their product for 20 years and what they have out now I would put up against any OEM. Without a doubt this is going straight onto the bag. I'm on the edge of my seat for the next big release, the ISO-T and I will have a full Maltby bag. If you are even remotely in the market for a FW do your self a favor and get one.

  12. In for some testing is the new Maltby KE4 TC FW. If you have been paying attention Maltby has been killing it lately in their product launches and this FW is just gorgeous. If it plays anything like it looks it will be awesome. I have it glueing up with a Paderson Ballistic FW shaft so I might give it some work later on today. This one is a 4-16°. As a side not the bottom adjustable weigh is the same size as a Callaway or Taylormade wrench. Cant wait for this one. I will try to get some data comparison between this and a Callaway 4 wood of equal loft. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  13. Since I had been gaming the Bridgestone Tour XS this test made me really want to try out the Tour X. In a driver I am a high spin player so even 300-400 rpm drop in spin will really help me out. I did some extensive head to heads over a two day period. Just as in the test the Tour X was longer off the driver by 3 or so yards. Nothing drastic but it was longer. That is just about where the difference between the two was. Playing two balls through every hole at times I had no idea which ball I was playing so it was basically a blind test. They both performed extremely well. Always around the flag, no flyers or any duds. Just reliable repeatable play. This is a ball that is so perfectly suited to my game and gives me the feel I like. From 175 and in the ball plays like it has eyes. Really gives me a straight flight. Isnt overly spinny on full approach shots yet bites on short pitches. Also it feels great off the putter. Not mushy soft but just soft enough that it still gives me good feedback through the hands. I could game either one truthfully and be happy as a clam. When I'm done with either dozen I'm not sure which will stay in the bag. It's that close. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  14. Yesterday I had epoxy failures on both my driver and 4 wood. This all occurred by the third hole. I used the HDI 3 for the rest of the round. At one point I got it to -4. But in the back the really long holes took a toll and finished at -1 on a 6400 yard course. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  15. That will be an awesome combo Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
