You'll be good to go by Monday. A couple of bags of frozen peas and a weekend on the couch and you'll be fine.

Very nice. How do you like the grip? I’ve gotten accustomed to a larger grip and am not sure about the Pistolero Plus. When I as trying putters at my local Golf Galaxy they hadn’t received any Phantom putters yet.

So ironically enough, they had 4 of these putters at my Golf Galaxy and every single one of them had a grip that was super crooked.  Some were off by a few degrees and one was just so bad it wasn't even close.  It look like someone had twisted it in two different directions while it was still drying.

I ended up removing the grip with a grip saver tool so that I could put it on straight after I bought it.  I love the feel of it but use a claw grip so it's a little skinny for me.  I put 6 layers of tape under it when I re-installed it so that it would be fatter and so far I'm liking it.

That’s awesome. I thought the feel was a lot more solid than the 5.5 and teamed with the low bend, it was the correct amount of toe hang for me. I hope it works well for you!!

It's definitely more solid feeling and sounds better because it's 303 steel instead of aluminum like the 5.5 was.  I liked the 5.5 look but the sound/feel didn't do it for me.  Had a weird ting/tock sound, especially on long putts.

Since I spent most of the winter months remodeling our basement, we are currently in the process of decorating. Found this clock on the web and had to have it for a golf section of the basement.

First thing I learned (again) was that the Rad line doesn’t work for me at all, and the G425 isn’t any better than my G400 Max. The biggest thing though was I was correct about the Smoke 5.5... too stiff for me. I was amazed at the difference with the Cypher 5.0 in the Epic. My ball flight was higher and straighter immediately. A small adjustment, and I was hitting a nice draw. I know this sounds ridiculous, but the lighter shaft added 20+ yards also.

The 5.0 is considered a senior flex(?), so that was a little humbling... but I’m going to turn 67 at the end of June, and the numbers today don’t lie. It is what it is. At the end of the day I’m fine with playing what works best, and I’m also super excited that my back seems to be holding up fine after hitting quite a few drives today.

 

... Some crazy irony as I teamed up in a match between twosomes with a guy that just turned 70 and he was playing an older Cobra and a stock 60gm R flex shaft. On the back 9 I had been driving the ball well most of the day with my Sim, he told me he also had a Sim and showed it to me with the stickers still on it. I asked why wasn't he hitting it and he said he just bought it this morning and wanted to try it at the range first. He was a little worried it had a 50gm senior shaft in it and didn't know how it would react. I said "Well, LOL you aren't driving it very well with what your using so what do we have to lose?" And he did just that and after some fades that lost yards using his first driver he hit a nice high draw a good 20+ yards longer. He shot a 49 on the front and a 44 on the back due to much better driving, so it doesn't sound ridiculous at all!!!

Not sure if this can be considered new, but....

Ive had my Epic Max for well over a month now, but have only hit it a few times on the ranges 4 weeks ago. In the back of my head I felt that the Hazardous Smoke 5.5 was a little too stiff for me. Like I said, I’ve had limited time with it, and although I was getting a bit more with it than my G400 Max, I was hitting low bullets that we’re pushed slightly. I really had to work hard to hit it straight or with a draw. I wasn’t sure if it was the shaft, or my restricted swing however.

Well today my back felt pretty good, and I brought it to my local PGASS to see about hitting a few more drivers before my 90 day playability ran out. First thing I learned (again) was that the Rad line doesn’t work for me at all, and the G425 isn’t any better than my G400 Max. The biggest thing though was I was correct about the Smoke 5.5... too stiff for me. I was amazed at the difference with the Cypher 5.0 in the Epic. My ball flight was higher and straighter immediately. A small adjustment, and I was hitting a nice draw. I know this sounds ridiculous, but the lighter shaft added 20+ yards also.

At the end of the day I’m fine with playing what works best, and I’m also super excited that my back seems to be holding up fine after hitting quite a few drives today.

The smoke lineup of shafts are slightly softer than the original hzrdus like but they still play stiffer to flex.

I and others have said it in various threads about how flex is just a rating within a companies shaft line and it’s not even standard a lot of times within the same company. The even flow lineup from PX flexes don’t play the same as their hzrdus lineup in the same flex.

Finding a weight and a shaft profile that fits ones swing is more important than the flex listed on a shaft.

You’re correct Matt. I think it’s great you posted this, I was about to do the same later today... it’s such an important distinction, and one that has never been clarified, both by TT and the OEMs and many fitters who work in retail stores.

I was killing some time last night and googled True Temper shafts, the Cypher and the Smoke in particular. The TT site, a and bunch of club fitting stores came up. They all had the following chart....

4.0 Ladies

4.5 Senior

5.0 Regular

5.5 Strong Regular(or plus)

6.0 Stiff

6.5 X Stiff

I’d never seen this before, and it confirmed what I’ve always felt about TT (project x in particular) shafts. As someone pretty firmly in the regular flex category, the 5.5 never really worked well for me. I could get away with it, but I never liked it.

Im surprised they don’t make their branding more clear, to be honest. A strong regular shaft is a great option for a lot of average golfers, and they would probably sell a lot more of them if they were labeled more clearly.

 I’m sure they’ve lost a lot of “regular” flex players who aren’t aware of the difference between the 5.0 and 5.5. The OEM’s apparently feel the 5.5 fits more players than the 5.0, because it’s the stock R option for almost every one of them, but this only adds to the confusion IMO.

The worst part is some fitters/salesman tell you the 5.0 is a senior flex and don’t even know it’s actually the regular. I’m not going to lie, for a few hours last night I was wondering if I should be playing senior flex in the rest of my clubs. Thankfully I saw the chart, which saved me some money, lol.
