  1. I kind of figured that might have been the purpose of them (and that they weren't working correctly afterwards) but I just thought I'd ask. Thanks Did you try the MTBx if you're going for distance, although it does have a higher descent angle which would make it run out less.
  2. Yeah it looks like the BX has a good carry distance with a lower descent angle which should give it more run out than the other balls. I'm not sure what the purpose of the point graphs are though. Clicking on the dots doesn't tell what ball is which. What did you mean for it to show? Or am I missing the whole point.
  3. Okay the new one works fine. I downloaded it and saved it as an excel file then opened it and it works great, thanks for sharing your hard work on this.
  4. Yes I found the same thing-view only.
  5. I use the Maltby TE forged irons with Nippon 950 shafts(great combo and love the irons) but I find it hard to believe these FDI's would out perform my Tour Edge EX10 hybrids with Recoil 670 shafts and E8 Beta 3wood with the Aerotech Claymore shaft and my new CBX #2 iron-wood with the hzrdus shaft, but I've been proven wrong before, lol. Like with the irons, I had Mizuno MP57's before, I'll be hard pressed to get the TE's out of my bag now. I've never tried the Recoil 660 shafts, how do they compare to the 670?
  6. Damn, that's more than pretty good, 60 drives and that's the average. Those Chrome Soft balls are ones I never liked, never played them long enough to really check drive distance averages, just never like the way they flew or their distances period.
  7. When you say shorter shaft/lighter clubhead are you referring to woods? If you are then it's the other way around, shorter shaft heavier clubhead, a 3wd head is heavier than a driver head and a hybrid head is heavier than a 3wd head.
  8. Aerotech Claymore MX48, best shafts I've played in my driver and 3wd(after trying Rogue silver, various Matrix, Pro Launch etc.), and they are dirt cheap.
  9. So you're going back to the 950GH? I play the 950GH R and just love the shaft. I came from a D300S.
  10. Wow, a 23 yard increase just by going from a chrome soft to a ProV1X with a 92mph ss, really. Was that just one drive or was that consistent over a few rounds? If that's over numerous rounds that's bloody amazing, because the ball test doesn't even show that kind of difference between those 2 balls at any SS. Were you checking that with a shot function on your gps?
  11. LOL, well that is quite a gain in distance, I'll say that much.
  12. So no more "Callaway chrome soft" as in soft balls don't go very far, but 50 yrds less, that's amazing. I just looked in my bag and there were a couple of the CS, into the garbage they go.
  13. That wasn't the Z Star XV but the softer Z Star?
  14. It was MGS who said they would be linear but they got that info from one of the manufacturers.
  15. Yes they were all 2019 editions
  16. So that was the Z Star not Z Star XV? And you thought it was a little too firm. If it was the XV I could understand that but if it's the Z Star then it should feel softer than the XS and spin less according to the data. What, Tiger is allowing them to change his ball. I'm guessing he must have a lot of input into the changes.
  17. And what ball was that?
  18. I see MGS is looking for testers for the Z Star and Z Star XV, each tester is given 1dz of each to test. Only for USA I'm in Canada so I don't qualify, damn. I talked with a Srixon rep in their USA head office and he assured me the retail balls (Z Star and Z Star XV) are the exact same as the Tour Pros use. So no Callaway tricks here with Srixon.
  19. Yes the Z Star 7i does show it's very consistent, just offline. And true about the Z StarXV, but it doesn't seem to add up when you look at all 3 speeds, fast is -12.5, mid is -5.2 and slow is +2.
  20. Yeah you can't beat that price. I suppose one way to tell the performance quality of a ball is to see how many Pro Tour players around the globe are playing it. Of course with the exception of Callaway who lies about the tour players playing the same balls as we can buy. Obviously Titleist is #1, but from what I've read and from my own experience the ProV1/x scuff up easily, who's #2-not Callaway, Srixon has a lot Pro Tour players around the globe playing both the Zstar and the zstar XV, Bridgestone only has a handful of players that's it, TM from what I see is only a handful or two, of c
  21. Sounds like most are more or less happy with the MTBX. Like you say if you never lose a ball maybe you should play the ProV1x, although I've read comments before about them getting scuffed very easily. How much is a dz MTBX in the USA. To me distance is great but not at the expense of dispersion(offline data/shot area), fairways not so much, shots into the green very much so. To that end I think the ZStar XV is one of the better ones. They sure have a lot of tour players around the globe playing both the ZStar and the ZStar XV.
  22. That's great that you support your club, providing they're not adding a huge mark-up on their balls. All clubs up here add a huge mark-up on balls. Good to hear that you don't see any irregularities on the MTBX. I have a question on the ZStar data, MGS rated it excellent, but how is that possible with it having the "worst 7i" (for all speeds) offline data of any ball, yet the ZStar XV only a has wayward fast driver offline data and it got rated VG?
