Video on Instagram this AM, so took a screen shot. Cameron Champ. 304 carry, but almost twice as high as 30’!!!! The 30’ part is definitely the issue.

Yeah at 30’ you would need Kyle Berkshire speed to even hope to get it 280 in the air

I played with the flight scope trajectory optimizer you see if I could obtain drives that were being described. Is it doable, yes, but you are looking as 3* launch angles with 190ish ball speed and sub 1000 spin rates and firm fairways. Because of the softwares minimums I couldn’t duplicate exactly but it does appear possible.

They were watching some of my tee shots from driver most wanted testing. I think my lowest was in the 600 range. No, that wasn’t intentional.

Yeah, 190+ ball speed by an Am.... That’s the kicker.

The Accra TZ6 is an excellent shaft for achieving a higher launch and holding spin down.  Have been gaming one in my driver for about a year and am seriously considering putting one from a higher weight class in my 3 wood.
