The only recent time I've had it measured was during my indoor Trackman fitting when I got fit for our test. It was 103-105, but I don't know how accurate that is indoors with Trackman. I've read some conflicting things online, but I assume it's accurate enough.

My playing distances on the course line up with the Senior Tour numbers in the chart below, almost exactly +/- a few yards:

Very cool. Thanks, man. Good to compare. I'm not far off from you, always trying to improve. I'd love to sniff 350 like @THEZIPR23, but that's probably not in the cards for me.

F THAT GUY! Jokes aside, yeah it would be rad to have that in the tank, but those drives you've been hitting 260-270 aren't anything to be disappointed about.

These distances are solid. 
Using trackman indoors and out the couple of times I have I haven’t seen a difference in SS. Our speeds are not that different. Last time I was on one was in May and I was 107. One thing I have found is that I am on the lower end on SS (when compared to guys of my length) but luckily I am one of the most efficient at applying that speed to the ball.

Anything is possible. Although there are definite times I would trade all my distance to hit my irons great. 
Your improvement has been spectacular. You have blown me away with your improvement in a short time.

Status update: The flash is still incredible. Distance is still there and confidence continues to grow. I’m not sure if they can make a club that would fit me better. My only gripe would be that I am still missing too many fairways. But it’s really aim point and nothing to do with driver. Missing the fairways has not affected my game. Since I put the flash in my bag I have dropped my handicap almost 3 strokes. Stats below of my last 10 rounds. 935002FE-48B8-48C3-9299-6891C0270FB1.jpeg.fafc864221ac5a2aa567d4e715b00e6b.jpeg68DC0176-2D44-4AF1-BC2E-53D4A0B037C0.jpeg.57815334c15012d1cd9ccceb0b16d8fe.jpeg

No desire to try and tinker it to miss only one way? Maybe a different shaft? My favorite part about the driver is that I rarely miss left now, where I used to fight the left side so much with my previous driver:

I don't mind the right miss because I can usually sort it out mid round, or I'll just play the cut and aim a little left. When I miss left now, it's because I put a really crappy swing on the ball. I do wish I had a tighter deviation between low and high like you do. 20y is NICE, 50y not so much haha.

I’ve tried 3 other shafts 😂. Only one that was an improvement on dispersion was the Ventus but it is 10-15 yards shorter. Even with only hitting 50% I’m not ready to sacrifice that much yardage. My average dispersion is 18 yards, haven’t eliminated the left rough but I have eliminated the ball that hooks off the planet. So while yes I would love to have a one way miss like yours I am at least comfortable enough that if there is trouble left I can navigate it.

I think we can all agree that@THEZIPR23 is playing a driver that is illegal like Schauffele was with his distances.

You lightweights! 5'7" here but have about 60-70 lbs on both of ya. With that said I have 2 full rounds in with the EFSZ and it is definitely long. I don't think the shaft is a perfect match for me but even with an 84 yard shank Game Golf has me at a 268 average. I'm not sure I would gain my ch distance with a different shaft but I may reduce my dispersion. It has bested all the drivers I have put in play this year so far. That list includes Ping G410+, Mizuno ST190, ST190G, Srixon Z785, and TM Tour Issue M3.

You guys could be my three point guards. Although in HS at 6'5" I played power forward and some center.   Now at a shrinking 6'4" I probably PG size these days.

While 20 years ago I may have been the point guard on my high school team, if I'm playing basketball these days it better be half court and a game of horse!!

As I mentioned in the "How'd you play" thread, I tied my PB for 9 holes today and shot 1-under very much due to how well I was hitting driver.

Out of the gate, warmup consisting of swinging my 56 and 60 bunched up in my hands, I had the wind to my back and let it FLY:

You can really tell which holes were down wind and which were back into -- underlines down wind, boxes straight back into the face:

image.png.841a9be8832634cb3264d571292fd67c.png

#9 was a slight miss, but on #7 I felt like I really cranked it. Gusts didn't feel too strong, but I'm not sure what could explain a 197y drive other than a really strong wind, even with a slight miss.
