Time to see if it's got anything for the champ... Wished I could just find another LCG head but no way I'm breaking apart the Elements and LCG I'm playing right now... Here's the combo I'm trying

You'll have to store that in a fire safe cabinet, and make sure you wear a mask and gloves when handling.

I can't comment on the models that are stock in a few drivers because they're a different, non handmade shaft. This one is a handmade version (the aftermarket) that I got back in September before they were released as one of their test team members. The shaft is a phenomenal spin killing shaft. It's mid-low launch and feels like a firecracker at impact. That's why I went to a higher loft with this head. I'm trying to find another Superfast 2.0 LCG around 10-10.5 to mate with that shaft as my gamer is 9.2 degrees and this shaft in that head launches too low. I will say this head will be pulled. I just can't seem to get it where I can feel the head. The hotmelt port in the sole is full and it's still only at D1. I really don't want to drill through the hosel to add more. Love the shaft though. It's an explosive shaft. There's a reason it leads the shaft count this week in Phoenix

Stopped at a local shop today while my wife was doing some shopping and picked up a Ping Anser F for $30. Have always wanted one of these since they came out and could not beat the price. All original and not a ding I the head.

Just got an updated iPhone, let me know what you guys think of the watch.  Hadn't really considered one until now - just another way to spend money that I don't want to tell the wife about!

Yeah, I don't hit as far as I use too but, I used to use my TM mid rescue #5 to hit about 150 yards,

But, the new 588's I can hit the 6 iron that far, in the cold. I'm hoping for a little more when it warms up.  It was only about 42 degree's Sat when I played.  I couldn't hit my Cleveland CG4 6 iron near as far and it always faded right.

Back on Jan 25 I mentioned I was going to consider buying a new Driver. Either the 2015 Cobra Fly-z or Fly-Z+. Today the clubs/shafts came in and I got on the LM at my local dealer fitter guy. I hit a number of shot with both clubs. The FZ+ was set at 11* loft with the flip weight forward and fitted with a Adila Tour ADX-65g 4.5t-R shaft. The Fly-Z was set at 10.5* loft with standard weight that comes with it set in the rear. The FZ only sits in the rear on this model. I don't know what the removable weights weigh for either club. The shaft I tested for the FZ is a Aldila Tour ADX-65g 3.6t-S shaft. I'm comparing these clubs and their performance to my SLDR which generally speaking I hit very well most days. So why change everyone asks? Because I want to and because I liked the review and data MGS did last year in the Most Wanted Driver. My comments are not technical at all. Here is what I experienced today...

 

First off I liked the looks of the FZ+ slightly better than the FZ. The FZ+ has a slightly deeper face where the FZ has a more elongated head with less "pear" shape to it. I could like either club but today I'd choose the FZ+ on looks alone.With the FZ+ I gained about on average 12-15 yards. Some of my better shots with a gain of 20-22 yds. I'll take that anyday. With the FZ I was slightly less with around 10 yards average gain. Shot dispersion with both clubs was rather tight. In the middle mostly in about an 8-10 yard circle. Hard to beat I think and very pleased. The FZ+ is 1/2 shorter than the FZ. The FZ being 45" and the FZ+ 44.5". The FZ+ felt better hitting shots and quite frankly I could tell it was shorter than the FZ before we measured them. I know you're curious how far the LM was saying I hit these shots. My longest drive with the FZ+ was 244yds and about the same with the FZ. I don't really believe those numbers/distances too much. So do I believe my shot dispersions? Sort of maybe... because I generally play in the fairway but more to the left side due to my easy draw.

 

Tomorrow I'm taking both clubs and will play both during my warm-up and during my round. I'll measure my distances. I average 248-250 with my SLDR during the green grass season. Here in the winter with dormant Bermuda I get much more roll averaging more like 265yds. I'll take the tool with me tomorrow and might switch shafts around and play with the forward vs rear weight position on the FZ+.

 

Today I'm leaning to the Fly-Z+. I have two rounds to play over next few days so I should be able to get a good feel for both clubs. I might take them over to another club this next week and do some more testing at their performance center. They have Trackman with out door hitting. I like using a LM much more when you can hit outdoors.

I played both models of the Fly-Z today with mixed results. However... I'm giving the edge to the Fly-Z over the Fly-Z+. On the front I used the FZ+. Didn't hit one fairway. My drives were too low and I was hitting a cut. Hit one OB right. The club felt solid and had a muted thud/whack sound to it. I didn't like the ball flight at all. Early on the front 9 I moved the weight to the rear position but didn't see any difference in ball height. The loft was set at the highest position of 11.5d. 

On the back nice I played the Fly-Z set at 12* loft with the Aldila Tour Blue S shaft. My first tee shot went OB right. After re-teeing I hit this one long and straight down the right rough. No draw as I was expecting. The next hole I hit driver on I ripped on long and straight down the middle 265 yds. I was gaining a little more height but still not as high and with a draw like my SLDR.

On 18 I hit a good shot with a mid-height slight draw to 270 yds. Best drive of the day with either of the FZ's.

 

Tomorrow I'm going out to the practice tee and work with changing shafts in the FZ. I'll also try the FZ+ again. Alongside my SLDR.

 

Today's conclusion: I like the feel, sound and results of the FZ best. But still not as well as my SLDR. Also, I think the initial LM work I did yesterday was all BS. I have said and thought before that all the launch monitors in the world can't tell me what I see with my own eyes on a golf course. I trust my eyes. It's going to be hard for me to give up my SLDR. For now anyway.

Callaway XR16 pro is in the near future, along with a new putter, and new wedges, may have to put one of these on the back burner for a bit. I think the wedges will have to wait.

No casey. Should my testing of the two the Fly-Z models prove to be non-starters then I'll keep playing my SLDR as is. There is no need to make any changes in that club. I'll go out later today and work with both of them a bit. Then tomorrow I'm going to select either the FZ+ or FZ and play 18 with it. We'll see.
