  1. Maybe try to look at new level golf. They have a few options that would be considered in between the 699 pros and the 639 cb irons. 902 forged model. The more forgiving 1126. Both can be found in black if you have be patience. They have 2 new irons available. One made to be similar to the older 902 with the same name as one slightly larger than the previous years 902 named the 902-os for oversized. Both should fall in between the 699 pros and the 639 cb irons on how difficult they are to hit consistently. Worth a look at a good price and they may offer black finishes soon.
  2. Thanks for all the good feedback guys. The shaft optimizer can be a little confusing. But in the long run out produced a result I feel gave me the best shaft for my swing.
  3. So I have the voice caddy brand swing caddy. Which is great for knowing your distances but doesn't help me if I don't have a gps on the cart though. No rangefinder but maybe I get lucky. Thanks for what you guys do.
  4. Oh another reason to question all this is that the first suggestion I was given by the optimizer was for the Project X IO. Which did not translate to better shafts for me. They actually performed terribly.
  5. Yeah I understand what I'm getting when asking opinions on shafts. Just curious how people that have used them felt about them. I'm actually using the Project X LZs myself currently. The C-taper lite are also not super common stock offering so I assumed you would have people like myself making the choice to get shafts aftermarket to get the most out of their irons. Just asking around before I pull the trigger on this. It's a little difficult right now to find a full set of c-taper lite shafts in the matte black finish. I'm also not sure if I want them in my wedges and well or not. Thanks for the reply.
  6. Hello MGS members. This year I've had the opportunity to play a Titleist TSI2 driver. I've had chances to play Titleist fairway woods and drivers in the past few years and I felt this driver deserved a bit more attention than previous offerings. Titleist seems to have a stigma attached to their woods offerings from the past several years. My feeling was some of their drivers and fairways lacked forgiveness and weren't exactly blowing away the competition or perhaps even keeping up with some of the other big brands. I've played the TSI2 for the last 3 months or so and I can say, that for me, this is the best driver I've ever had the blessing of getting to play! I got this after playing a Callaway Epic Flash 9° driver. I didn't have consistent success with the Epic and my distances were really not what I felt they should be. I will say my longer drives with the Epic Flash were going out at about 245 yards. My arccos basically shows me averaging 221 yards with the Callaway. First thing I noticed with the TSI2 was the confidence it gave me at setup. It really looks good behind the ball. Contact is almost always between the two lines that identify the center area of the face. Distance is night and day. I have corrected a few issues I've had with my driver swing, but I felt this was more of the driver helping me feel a good smooth driver swing. Weight seems perfect to me as far as balance and swing weight so that the head isn't too heavy or light for the shaft length and flex. I already have a high launch so I am using the Mitsubishi Tensei AV raw white that came as a stock offering in stiff flex. It gives me a good launch window and my average driver distances went way up. With a smoother swing I'm now hitting my longer drives out to 270 some as much as 280 plus. My average is now closer to my previous longer drives. The TSI2 is one of the more forgiving drivers offered this year. If hit a bad drive it was usually a slice. Which on the Callaway regularly kept me barely above 200 yards on poorly struck drives that went from left to right. The Titleist corrects even errant swings to more of a fade. If I'm aimed to the middle of the fairway at worst I may be 15 yards right of my target instead of 40! They have really captured something special with this model. I know some of these numbers seem exaggerated but I promise they are not. I don't believe the Epic set up really aided in helping my driver's go farther and straighter. Maybe it's just the lucky combination of the low launch Tensei White and the characteristics of the TSI2. Either way seeing your average distance increase so dramatically really can do wonders for your game. I really think everyone should give this one a try. I have also hit the Radspeed this year and have the chance now to play the TM SIM 2. The Radspeed didn't work as well for me but it did have a nice feel. But as it stands right now the TSI2 has a chance to beat out the other brands handily and become my next driver for years to come. Please do yourself a favor. If you are looking at drivers don't pass up Titleist's TSI2. I would like to know if anyone else has tried the TSI2 and how it's worked for them. Props to Titleist for killing it this year on the driver market! I mean killing it!
  7. Hey guys wanted to hear some opinions on the KBS C-taper lite. I recently had a iron fitting with a local golf fitter. He is very respected in small circles that know he takes his work seriously. Used the Mizuno shaft optimizer with a few interesting results but out of the results the c-taper lite stood out with the few shots I got to hit with it. It never seems like a fitting is long enough to get all the answers. I know KBS puts out a good product. So I was really curious to see how others that have used these shafts felt about performance for themselves. Any insight or things learned with hindsight would help. I appreciate everyone helping me make an informed decision. I've been a Modus user in the past so if anyone has opinions on the feel in comparison to that might be helpful. Thanks for your help.
  8. I can't speak for the Mac Daddy wedges but I went ahead and went for Cleveland's CBX 2 in a 52° which is the wedge I play most. You need run on a lot of the greens I play most. They have definitely surprised me. I'm usually a Titleist guy but opted for a more forgiving wedge. Really seen improvement on smaller chips just off the green. Ultimately this helps my putting by keeping me closer to the hole after my chips. I would recommend.
