Finally got all the boys together!!!  

So the first pieces to my Cobra RADSPEED One Length and unofficial CC5 participant showed up today.     

... Now that we are in the off season and the prices are dropping at premium Phoenix courses, I figured it was a good time to add a 3 wood. Sim2 Max with a Tensei Raw Blue shaft was the best performin

I may have purchased a custom lob wedge as well😗...and I’m scheduled for a fairway / hybrid fitting Friday.

It will be an expensive week but I’ve spent the past few months saving and laying low, this is my hobby and it’s ok to splurge every once and a while. 😊

I have to disagree... winter months is when I end up spending or planning to spend the most on golf because I get bored and want to golf. [emoji1787]

Which is like every 1.9 days. So this statement carries significant weight. 

 

aside from that, I wandered to the other 120+ SS forum and found an Accra TZ6 M4 for $175. So I have that coming to try in my new SIM2 Max. Hoping it feels similar to a Ventus, but with a little higher launch than the blue. I didn't have the patience for @edingc to try then sell his new AutoFlex to @dlow206 and then for him to try and sell it to me at huge discounts. So this will have to hold me over till then.

I've used the ventus blue for 2 years now, love everything about the feel of it, but... I just can't get it up anymore and I needed help 😃

Looking for something a little higher launching, a little higher spinning. I have the 5th Gen Kuro Kage Silver that came with my SIM2 Max right now, and it fits me better than the Ventus Blue these days. But the bylaws of my provisional CHA membership requires that I don't play a standard stock shaft offering, so had to find something to spend money on and I couldn't find a decent deal on a Ventus Red, or I would have gotten that. If I find one of those, I'll probably order it too.

Goes to show that what some deem the holy grail isn’t necessarily the case for everyone and it really is user dependent 

I remember when ping was one of the first compare that brought the KK shaft as an option. During a fitting for this fitting it came down to that and the whiteboard. The KK was just money. It was one I got along with in the z745 driver too

I have one sitting in the bag with no 3 wood head - what did you think of it?

I'm considering putting it into a hybrid and cutting it down, but I don't want to mess swing weight up too much and have to add hot melt or different weights.

its a good shaft, but its not really a true high launch shaft. Fujikura mentioned that its only very slightly higher launching than the blue.

that 3 wood shaft is a 0.335". Most hybrids take a 0.370", some maybe a 0.355". Its possible that there are hybrids out there that take a 0.335", but it would definitely be more rare.

Two things shafts don’t do. Launch and spin. That comes from the golfer. The designs paired with a head may help promote a swing that improves launch and/or spin. It’s why a majority of fitters start with the head and find the one that gives good launch characteristics then use the shaft to fine tune the setup to get the ball flight characteristics optimized.

Yeah, get what you are saying. What I was saying was if one person hits the Ventus Red vs. Ventus Blue, typically (not always) the end result will be slightly higher launch with the Ventus Red vs. the Ventus Blue. I'm not saying the shaft caused it vs. the person's reaction to the shaft, merely the end result. And for some golfers, they may have some completely different end result.
