Ordered these foam balls the other day (got them yesterday) for doing drills in the front yard and not having to worry about smashing anything.

How do these compare to the Almost Golf Balls?  Been thinking about something other than regular balls for pitching in the backyard.

I have no idea mate, I've never hit the Almost golf balls but they're half the price for 6 more. They fly pretty well, but I'm just using an almost one handed chipping stroke that my instructor gave me as a drill.

I messed around with this combo on the range a few weeks back after I placed the order. Based on the short time on the range I don’t see it being an issue on the course.

None. The Sim2 was more than likely going to get picked up this year and having been fit into the hzrdus yellow in the original m2 as well a some other heads over the years I wanted to give this shaft a try to see how it felt and performed as an upgrade to the yellow.

Always enjoyed the HZRDUS yellow shaft.  How do you find the RDX blue compares?  I wasnt that big of a fan when I tried it in the Cobra Radspeed.  Much preferred the Motore

It has a better feel. For me the yellow wasn’t anywhere near as boardy or bad feeling as the black. The yellow to me just lacked any feel and surprisingly held up well to my aggressive transition. During the visit to PX DB mentioned when they designed the hzrdus line they didn’t account for feel at all and the designs were all based on performance. The evenflow was different where they kept focus on performance but accounted for the feel aspect.
 

In the 15 or so swings I took with the demo setup the rdx blue has definitely improved on the feel of the yellow. I never hit the smoke yellow but based on talking to a buddy who has similar swing characteristics as I do and who played the original yellow in a couple heads and played the smoke yellow in the sim the smoke wasn’t that big of a change from the og yellow I see the rdx blue as a good transition from the original design. I could see where some who liked the yellow wouldn’t prefer the feel of the rdx blue

To expand a little more. I’ve been fit quite often over the last 20+ years and know where my optimal numbers are and what that looks like in ball flight, as well as some experience in club fitting (nowhere near an expert).There’s several shafts I know work for me in different manufacturers so for me it’s getting the right loft then determine which of the shafts I want. I also like to tinker so I’ll usually buy an aftermarket shaft to mess with either as an experiment like new graphite design shafts since I like the ad DI and iz or maybe something from UST which I’ve been fit into some of their stuff, or if there’s buzz over a new shaft. 
 

The range I usually go to helps me to judge performance based on what’s normally in the bag

I played a round with the new shaft yesterday. Really, really happy with the results. My first shot was a fade into the middle of the fairway. I really liked the feel and ball flight was lower than what I was seeing with stock shaft. When I put a good swing on it, I was in a better position to n the course. Very happy. To maintain swing weight the shaft is a half inch shorter than the stock shaft. I’m not sure if that half inch makes a difference but I’ve read that it could improve control. I’d defer to those who are better and more knowledgeable on these matters. But initial results are promising.

Oh, I figured that out quick...gearhead...super cool.  

One thing I have always appreciated is how certain shafts just wont perform in certain heads.  I was looking to see what else you'd classify along with the RDX Smoke line.

Can you elaborate on what you mean by classify? 

In general the shafts I’ve been fit too have been the older Diamana blue and whiteboard in ping i20, g20 and g25 and the blueboard in titleist 910.

Aldila rouge silver in several heads and improved numbers with the Aldila rogue Max in ping and titleist. Rogue also in the 2014 gbb. 
 

As mentioned before hzrdus yellow in Tm, ping and titleist.

UST Mamiya helium also the gold worked for me as did the Attas 6star and punch.I have the helium in my pxg and first had it in the 2016 M2 driver and 3hl. Have the Lin-q purple in the Sim2 3hl and would easily be an option for driver.

A reoccurring theme is some counterbalanced shafts work well with my swing in various heads.

The Tensei orange shaft has not. The blue has been so so. 

Both the ad di tested in M2 and m3/4 and m5/6. Worked well in both. The iz was a good option with the m6 but in all those scenarios the cost at the time wasn’t worth it for me over my current setup.

Im sure I’m missing another shaft or two that numbers worked but the feel and how it made me change my swing the more I hit them

edit: as soon as I hit send a few more popped into my head. Evenflow blue was good in 917 d3 but sometimes I felt like I had to go after it, also didn’t like the feel of the butt end in transition. The even flow white had a better feels and with ts2 was dead straight but a little low in peak height for me and without being on a monitor my guess is spin was in the 1800-2000 range which for me isn’t playable on the course but looks good on a monitor.

Ventus blue I tried after winning it. It was in 6x and g400. Some days felt like I had to go extra hard with it and didn’t like that but the performance was really good. The blue 6s or red 6s are ponders. Not sure if the blue 6s would improve some of the lower flight I saw or if the red profile would be overall better so this is why when I decided to go with Sim2 I went the rdx blue route based on experience with the hzrdus yellow and the chance of success being higher

By classify what you'd assume...categories of shafts that fit into similar profiles.  

A lot of the new inventory is overwhelming for some (me) to follow along so when guys like you chime in who are more adept to this, I like to pick your brain.

I think you explained it well...thanks
