Driver acquisition time...!


Recommended Posts

I think the Ventus was in the C721. I think the TSI3 I hit had a KuroKage in it. I'd like to go back next week and hit a TSI2 and see if there is any difference for me. I don't play as much as I used to, so the extra forgiveness in the TSI2 might be needed. Unless the TSI3 is that much longer. I'd still like to hit a G425 as well. We'll see.

Launcher XL has the same tech as the XXIO driver.  Counterbalanced shaft.  Very light weight.  NASA grade titanium. For a player who needs spin to help keep the ball in the air, the Launcher XL driver is tough to beat.  And at $349 for the bonded model and $399 for the adjustable, you should definitely check it out.

Whatever works buy it, don’t try to choose a different head to “save money” because the numbers aren’t going to be exactly the same between a TSI2 and a TSI3, otherwise they’d both have the same name. Make sure you know what you’re willing to trade performance-wise to choose amongst all the options it comes down to. Opportunity cost….

I've hit many drivers over my years. I am a 14 handicap and I have sold the house to game the Krank Driver !! Great design and performance.

Have played a number of brands over the years and realized that the problem was me and finally went to see a Titleist fitter and they set me up with the correct big dog in 2010.  Have been playing them ever since, always going in whenever the new clubs came out to see if I needed an upgrade and we did not always move up to the new equipment if we did not see an improvement of at least ten yards.  Have learned that it just not the head but getting the right shaft to complete the driver.  Was recently set up with the new TSI3 10.75 with a Fujikura Speeder 661 Tour Rated S shaft and the ripe young age of 75 can still hit it 260. The proof is in the fitting by a qualified titleist fitter.  Trackman numbers do not lie.  All my woods/metals have Fujikura speeder shafts and Titleist heads with GolfPride MCC Plus 4 Grips.  At my age I need every advantage I can get.  Just another two cents worth.  Whatever you do, go see a qualified fitter, mine has over thirty years experience, one I can truly rely on.
