  2. I have read through all of the comments and I agree with most of them, but I have one question that hasn't been asked. When you tried the different driver heads were the shafts different as well. If you are producing 155 -160 mph ball speed then I would guess that your swing speed is 100+. You also say you have to swing at 50% to keep it in play, which is also a sign that the shaft might not be strong enough for you. My club head speed is around 117 and until I went to a X Flex I could just let it go, I had to baby the swing in order for it not to go left. What shaft was in your old driver? I may have some that disagree with me, but the head of the driver is all about what the player likes to look at, the shaft is the engine. So if you like looking down at the Mizuno head...then try a different shaft. I hope this helps.
  3. Thank you to all that have replied. I have only played 4 - 5 rounds with the new sticks and 3 range sessions with them as well, so they are very new to me. I will take a look at the alignment as many of you have recommended. After hearing these thoughts it may just be that I have always lined up right to allow for the hook miss. It may take me time to re-learn what dead aim looks like over the ball. Again thanks for your opinions and advice it has really made me feel a little better about this. Just need to put some work in.
  4. Thanks THEZIPR23 for you reply Yes, it was a 15g increase in weight. I just wonder should I work through it knowing that I have eliminate what I feared the most when under pressure or try another shaft? Thanks THEZIPR23 for you reply
  5. I just recently got fitted for irons and the main reason was to eliminate the left side miss. I was playing standard clubs (Ping iblades) and my miss was a 10-15 yard hook. The fitter said the first reason for the hook was the shaft I was playing (Project X 5.5), my 7 iron swing speed is in the upper 90's. He also suggest that I go +0.5" due to me being 6'1" and adjust the lie to 2° flat to help with the miss left. So, with that information out there, I was fitted into the Wilson Staff Staff Model irons with Dynamic Gold X100's. What's the problem you ask? Now I miss right....and I mean right! I can still draw the ball, but it takes a lot more effort than it should. I would be happy with a little fall to the right, but starting right and going right (10 yds) is not what I want. So fellow Spies...Is it me or the fitting?
  6. New to the Forum and glad to be here... How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I have been playing since I was 4 years old, my father introduced me to the game. I play to a 3 HDCP. What do you love about golf? Other than sharing it with my Father, I enjoy the comradery of others on the course. It doesn't matter if your scratch or shoot in the 100's, we all enjoy the same game equally. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I enjoy learning about the game of golf from equipment, to course management and social diversity that it brings. I do not know any other Spies at this time, looking forward to meeting many of them. Where are you from? What is your home course? I am from New Bern NC which is about 45 minutes from the Southern Outer Banks and just under 3 hours to Myrtle Beach SC. My home course is The Emerald Golf and Country Club here in New Bern. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best: Year round golf!!! Worst: The humidity here in late Summer is about 110%. What do you do for a living? I am a Quality Engineer for Bosch Home Appliances.  How’d you pick your user name? It is my first initial and last name combined with my favorite number, which is also the day my first daughter was born.
