... Sweet! I played with a guy playing a 975D and the EI70 shaft. Says he bought it about 10 yrs ago and hasn't found anything better. Too much shaft for his swing as well as needing a more forgiving head but he was happy with his driver and that counts for something. I told him how this was THE set up back in the day until Graphite Design YS7/6 move up a flex and installed 1.5" only took over as the Hot Setup. Nobody was offering after market shafts in their drivers Titleist started stocking the 975D with the EI70 and elite player could buy the EI70 Tour played by DLIII. I miss those days.

The EI70 felt so good it was as if they were made for each other. 

Now that you mention DL3, I want to say he was a 976R guy…

... DLIII was one of the last to play persimmon drivers so you could be correct but they all started with the 975D before Titleist started making different heads. I remember Billy Andrade playing one of the smaller heads too.

Purchased 4 dozen Maxfli Tour Yellow balls(previous year) for $90(2 doz/$45).

I really like the previous version so don’t mind stocking up.

The best ball on the market that doesn’t say Titleist!

I completely forgot about Andrade. 
 

The change is still fascinating to me. While 1997 doesn’t feel too long ago there were plenty of persimmon holdouts. I was watching a video of Justin Leonard teeing off in the ‘97 PGA.  They were commenting on how switching to a metal driver changed his game. 
 

It was most likely a TM burner or Callaway Warbird but he was topping out at 260. Not too shabby.

I grabbed these too. At that price, and the fear of supply chain issues, I couldn't pass up giving them a try. Fall golf up here in Ohio, so they may wait till next season to try out.

... Not a chance. Yellow ball is a loner ... a rebel. If he (or whatever gender neutral term he goes by) was a person he would be:

So i didn't buy this, but just something i found when cleaning out the closet. 

Didn't think i would ever describe a putter looking like a butter knife, but this does. I hit some putts with this and this putter sucks. It feels absolutely terrible. Feels like i'm putting with rocks instead of golf balls.

the LAGP putter shaft is stable but smooth if that makes any sense.

Good to know. I’ve only had the original stability and then the KBS CT Tour so I’m looking forward to putting this in my putter not only for performance but in reality it looks awesome. 
 

look good, feel good, feel good, putt good. I’m hoping this is how it plays out.

To me, the OG Stability is like putting with rebar and a putter head. 

What I notice most about the LAGP is that it distinguishes center contact vs. non-center contact well, but remains stable regardless.. I don't mean that mishits feel bad, but i think you will notice what i am talking about when you try it out.

I had a CT Tour then went for a One Step. Looks fantastic in matt black and feels really nice too - good feedback from the head.

Don’t think it will make putts for you but from a feel perspective it’s better than steel shafts. I like it in my miura
