Intro

Thanks to both Terra Forza and MGS for giving me this opportunity! I’ve been golfing in some way pretty much my whole life – starting with plastic clubs and mini golf early, then par 3 courses, evening rounds with dad, and then went “competitive” (not, like, competitive-competitive, but High School, D3, and various local tournaments). I’m currently right around my best handicap ever – the 8-of-20 calculation helps that a bit, because my rounds are wildly inconsistent.

I’m excited for this test, because it’s focused on one my favorite things: driver fittings (and outcomes). The driver is my favorite club to tweak over time (putter is close second, but I’m regularly changing something with the driver) -- there’s always this feeling that it could be at least a little bit better. I generally switch out the driver every ~2 years, but will often use the same shaft with multiple driver heads (assuming it performs well on first trial).

I’m intrigued by the concept – it’s using data that I have not seen used in fittings before (at least not in my own). My past fittings have varied from just looking at lines on the launch monitor, to using some wearable sensors while swinging a special driver to track body/club motion, but nothing with the feet.

So, one of the main things I want to get out of this test is how confident the fitting makes me in the outcome. I can compare/contrast to somewhat recent driver fittings at: Golf Galaxy, GOLFTEC (prior to their execs saying they’ll step up the fitting game), Club Champion, and a TaylorMade Player Development Center (using Gears). Then, in terms of the actual shaft test, I’m planning to put it up against multiple shafts from those fittings (an Accra from CC, a Mitsubishi from TM PDC, and a Graphite Design that I got with my most recent driver just to try, because I was fit into something somewhat similar for my “hybrid”-build long irons). To be up front with it, my main skepticism is that it seems the goal is to fit into the best Terra Forza shaft, of which there are only 5 (and I have a guess at which one I should pick) -- I'm actually curious if the concept could extend beyond the Terra Forza line of shafts. 

First Impression

OK, so I kinda previewed this in some other posts, but wanted to collect all of the parts of what I'm considering a 3-part 1st impression -- the fitting, the shaft itself, and an initial session. 

Fitting: Super cool. I was skeptical (still am a little), but given what I saw about each shaft on their site and what I know from past fittings, it landed me pretty close to what I would've expected (you know, had I known more about things like the + options). I was basing it all off of things like weight and torque, would've picked either Yellow or Red if buying blind, and their foot pressure algorithm put me in the Yellow+ (seems between the Yellow and Red in some ways, but no idea how the foot pressure differentiates). Either way, they were using some kind of data to decide the shaft, not just guess and check like many of my other fittings. First few swings with the Yellow+ at the fitting didn't go well, but then I had a mini session of bombs -- and they were on target. Definitely starting to feel like they're onto something. Sample pic from the fitting, specifically one that landed on Yellow+:

image.png.aba8b9cbb89282acd86c9b025d2c3ac9.png 

Shaft: Not overly flashy, but still very nice. Mostly black, has the look of carbon fiber by the handle, yellow looks pretty slick (honestly, I think the best color combination in the bunch, with white coming in close second). They also go against the grain by not specifying things like flex -- it's just "the Yellow", with different weight/torque/other specs posted on their website. The Yellow+ is the Yellow that's tip-trimmed (common practice, even with other brands), I'm told an inch, but can't confirm. They offered a few customizations: for the grip, it wasn't specifically offered, but I asked -- I basically said "if it's one of these typical stock grips, I'm just going to swap it right away anyway, so pick one of these three if possible, or just send with no grip" (shaft arrived with the first grip in that preferred list, which is awesome). Then, length -- umm...no past fitting has ever addressed that, which I found annoying, so I really wasn't sure. I picked 45.5" as the rough current stock length (even though TM is 45.75"), but since I question everything, I'm now thinking I should've picked 45" (that was the stock length in my college days, back when I hit driver like 15-20yds further). Came with the TM adapter as well, set at neutral (same setting we used at the fitting). 

image.png.b0661009d5ebfdac04695931a0a389b3.png

First session performance: went to a new (incredibly nice) golf sim bar/restaurant for lunch today to give it a go. In the spirit of first impressions, decided to just go for it with this shaft, and save the comparisons to past fittings for the next sim/launch monitor session. Really wanted to come into this first impression post saying that it hits nukes -- but instead, the first set was...odd? Not nukes, not bombs...more like...Bullets? Piss missiles? Definitely not my usual ball flight -- very low spin (we're talking like 1400-1700rpm), very low flight, short carry with 50yds or more of roll, lots of right-to-left curve (well that last one is normal)...but also, consistent. Surprisingly consistent. Unfortunately I'm not savvy enough with the Trackman so I didn't grab all the fancy stats, but here's what I saw with the first few swings (it doesn't show apex, but trust me, it's low. Also don't mind the 2w stat at the bottom - that was my buddy swapping in with some kind of iron, and we just wanted to differentiate his swings from mine): 

image.png.74bc2913990e77197d8b84d160a70a30.png

All had similar stats across the board - similar carry, similar total, similar flight, all just left of target in the end, but also, that's a very small circle, so it's workable. Later in the session with some minor adjustments, I did get some more "typical" results on some (higher spin and flight, 270-275 carry, just right of target), but still had these low spin bullets come back surprisingly often. 

So, first impression is pretty good. The initial sim results are interesting, but we'll see what happens as we get closer to mid-season form (gotta keep in mind it's still very early -- only played 36 holes so far, and the two rounds were about a month apart).

INTRO:

I have been golfing for the past 19yrs, started after leaving the military and moving to San Francisco, I never expected to play golf. Everyone in my office played golf and they took me to a par 3 course in San Francisco and I remembering making par on the 4 hole (easy game, LOL) have been hook since.
Once I moved back to NYC, I began to play more and become more competitive and really get hooked on the game. Now living in Texas, my game as become more consistent as I get the play year-round vs 6 months a year when I was in NYC.
Started playing in some of the US AM Tour and Amature Players Tour tournaments again, and this has help my confidence and concentration since every shot counts and cannot just waste a shot if I was just playing around with friends.

My game – Currently at 8.8 HC, up and down, struggle with concentration in the middle of the round causing silly mistakes, which escalates those numbers quickly. Hence my scores fluctuating from 77 to 87. Chipping and putting has help keep my rounds under control, getting up and down from around the greens. Which I considered that my strength of my game. I struggle at times with my mid irons, but I compensate with my wedge game and putting.

My driving has been consistent by hitting lot of Fairways, average 66%, but not much for distance, average carry currently is between 215-220 yds. So, I am looking forward to evaluating this new shaft and hoping that those numbers improve without losing control of the fairway. It is no fun hitting it far, but if its miles left or right and have to punch out or re-tee. Then distance is negated.

First Impressions:

The fitting process is the first thing that its unusual from other fittings I have done before. Terra Forza is using their own Patten pressure plates to gather their data “Ground Reaction Forces” which determines which shaft best fits your swing. This considers your body weight, body turn, shift between your feet, plus other Patten data to calculate the shaft for you.

Once you gather the data on the pressure plates, there is no reason to go back, according to Terra Forza "Ground Reaction Forces" data is like your DNA for your swing, is not going to change once you have been fitted with the shaft.

Base on data gather, it was between the Orange and the White shaft. After further testing it was determine that I was more fitted for the White (Black) Shaft.
During the initial Fitting there was a definite increase in ball speed, carry and total yards from my current shaft to the TF White.

Fujikura Speeder NX TCS 50 Original Shaft: Carry/Total yds Avg: 230.1/248.9 -  Ball Speed Avg:142.0 mph - Swing Speed Avg: 95.8
Terra Forza White Shaft:  Carry/Total yds Avg: 239.5/258.1 -  Ball Speed Avg: 144.4 mph - Swing Speed Avg: 97.1

TerraForzaDataCapture.jpg.a6ab894d77ce1cfaabf246e477f4d914.jpg

The shaft itself is very clean, with some Carbon Fiber trimming and minimal branding besides the Terra Forza logo in White (Black) which determines the type of shaft. There are no numbers, or labels that will describe the shaft as Regular, Stiff, X-Stiff or weight. This is by designed from the company to allow the data to determine the shaft that works for your swing.

Testing the difference between by gamer shaft on my TM Qi10 and the new Terra Forza White Shaft.
Capture the Data using the SC300i unit.

Started with my current game shaft Fujikura NX TCS 50.
Carry/Total/Swing Speed/Ball Speed were solid for my swing. And they were was pretty consistent.
Screenshot2024-04-2510_45_39AM.png.206e66cb6cd8a2fea5ee7c407aea3106.png

Swapped out the shaft to the Terra Forza White.
Carry/Total/Swing Speed/Ball Speed there was a solid improvement on all of the numbers, which is consistent with my initial session after the fitting.
Screenshot2024-04-2510_34_16AM.png.9beabee24edf9b76dd9f8d911f63c7ac.png
One thing I have notice and I just need to adjust my setup is that because the swing weight is so different from my gamer (D8) to the Terra Forza (D5) There is more of a left straight pull / draw to the ball flight vs my straight / baby cut that am accustomed of playing.

The shaft feels like I can still give it a harder swing and it doesn't feel like am going to lose the drive. 

Another range session and the numbers continue to improve from my original starting stats and I still feel I could give it more.

And on the course can't asked for better stats than 100% Fairway hits.
image.png.7967620d226546e70a4ad27d548b9ed2.png

Looks (8 out of 10 points):

Describing the following:

  • Coloring / Graphics: Simple clean designed with Terra Forza in white letters and carbon fiber trimmings.
  • Overall color should work with any driver, it’s not flashy.

Feel (10 out of 10 points):

Describe how the club sounds and feels:

  • The weight 65.5 for the Terra Forza White but it didn’t feel as heavier but lighter than my Fujikura NX TCS 50. Reason was the swing weight was at D5 compared to my regular shaft at D8
  • The shaft appears to keep the load longer, which shows in the increase balls speeds.
  • I was expecting it be stiffer because of the weight, but it was very sturdy feel, comfortable to swing and you feel like you can be very aggressive.
  • It’s a different feel and it will take time to get adjusted but once you do, the numbers will show.

 

Basic Characteristics (19 out of 20 points):

 Compared to my current gamer:

  • Trajectory – Just a little lower than before, but I have notice that apex increasing as am getting more comfortable with the shaft.
  • Accuracy – This is the one area that has dramatically improve and was not expecting it. Went from 66% Fairways hit to 78%
  • Distance – Went from average of carry/total yds 230.1/248.9 to average of carry/total yds 244.5/263.5 total yds. That is almost 15yds gain.
  • Used a SC300i unit to compare and get base numbers on the following statics:
    Club Speed, Ball Speed, Carry Yds, Total Yds and Smash Factor.

As I shown above on the testing between by current setup and the new one with the Terra Forza can notice the difference right away.
with Fujikura NX TCS 50
image.png.f195c52403f2c8f9823e2b42e3393edc.png
with Terra Forza White
image.png.c0f2565aeb7d8951c2dd51c8098a68ff.png

  • Pressure – This shaft has giving me confidence to go for the tight fairways, carry bunkers and feel like am going to hit my spots consistently. Again, we are just amateurs, and we are going to miss our targets more times but it will be a lot less.

Terra Forza Driver Shaft Review - BOS edition

image.png

We’re back for another BOS edition review!  This time I am fortunate to be able to put the Terra Forza White+ Driver Shaft through its paces to see just how different the Terra Forza fitting process is, and if the results back up their claims.  Terra Forza believes that swings are "built from the ground up" and find that to be the most important aspect of fitting.  How you use the ground will impact which Terra Forza shaft you fit into.  The shafts have no traditional flex or weight rating marked on them, and you're not supposed to think about these shafts that way.  But more on that later!

IMG_8675.jpeg

For those of you who don’t know me; Hi!  I’m Bryan, or as I’m better known around these parts, GolfSpy BOS.  That's me in the photo above and I’m a 36 year old single digit handicap with hopes and dreams of getting to scratch and about 1/18th the time required to put in the practice to do so.

When I’m not golfing or dreaming of golfing I can most likely be found on some youth sports field or carting one of my three wonderful children around to some activity.  Thankfully, my oldest has already taken to the sport and my other two have shown interest as well!  So, It seems I will have some built in golf-buddies for life.

In regards to the current state of my driving game; it's just OK.  I wouldn't say it was good or bad, but I know there room for serious improvement in consistency if nothing else.  Here's a current view of my Arccos stats:

IMG_9829.jpeg IMG_9830.jpeg

Distance is fine, a little down from my best numbers, but I know that will return with a great focus on fitness.  The bigger issue is that I am currently fighting some wayward shots and miss equally in all directions.  I'd like to see the fairway hit % rise, and just generally see if I get in more of a groove with the Terra Forza shaft versus my gamer the Fujikura Motore X F3 6x.  

First Impressions:

So now comes the time where I'll share some of my first impressions of this shaft after taking delivery and getting some range time. I suppose technically my true first impressions was on receiving the full fitting kit with all the shafts, but we'll look at this from the perspective of someone who didn't fit themselves as that is how the vast majority of customers would fit into a Terra Forza shaft.

The Terra Forza is minimalistic and clean in its branding.  The glossy black finish will pair well with most drivers, including my epic max LS with my black lamkin sonar+ grip.  Black on black seems like it will never go out of style.

IMG_0112.jpeg

The logo and wording are slightly raised and are crisp and cleanly applied.  The shaft has no other marking and has a visible carbon fiber weave which smoothly transitions to all glossy black as you move towards the tip.

IMG_0113.jpeg IMG_0378.jpeg

So we know it looks great? But, how does it perform?  I've had the Terra Forza out to the range twice and have started to see some trends developing as I knock the rust off my swing.  

The Terra Forza White will be going up against the Fujikura Motore X F3 which I have been using for almost 2 seasons and honestly, I'm very comfortable swinging with.  This won't be an easy fight.

IMG_9983.jpeg

In the hand the handle of the Terra Forza feels a little firmer, with both shafts feeling stable down at the tip.  Whether on purpose or not, the Terra Forza White shaft feels to me like a traditional "white" profile with a touch firmer handle.  I have no way of checking but it feels a touch lighter swing weight in my hands.  Overall weight is very close with the Terra Forza weighing in at 126g with tip and grip and the Fujikura coming in at 128g.  So no big difference for me to adjust to there.  

I warmed up well and went through a bunch of balls before officially starting as I've been fighting a low hook to start the year.  Once I got going I hit balls with the Terra Forza and then with the Fuji, and went back to the Terra Forza.  I noticed 2 main things at the end:

  • When I first switched to my gamer I was immediately more comfortable and hit more consistently.  I'm not entirely sure what was the cause, but it did feel like I was in sync more.
  • The Terra Forza feels plenty stable down in the tip, which is historically where I need it.  Flight with both shafts was strong considering the questionable condition of the range balls, and Feel was really pleasant.  I'm excited to try this on the course with a tour caliber ball.

Then I switched back and had a bit of an "ah-ha" moment with the Terra Forza.  Despite playing 1/2 inch shorter I was seeing the same performance out of it.  Below is a selection of the top 10 with each shaft that I felt were "good" swings.  I extracted the MLM data and put it in this table:

image.png

As you can see, not much between the two of them.  All good numbers I'd love on the course.  And now it's time for my little bonus note:

  • The Terra Forza shaft had 2 swings which produced the highest swing speeds I've seen in a while at 106.2 and 106.8.  I also got a 158.8 ball speed which I have not had on the Rapsodo MLM2PRO before, so I think there is some meat left on this one for me to try and potentially gain some distance.

Next up, 5 rounds of golf this weekend down in Virginia... time for the pressure test!

Thanks to MGS and Terra Forza for this opportunity!

The timing could hardly be better since driver tune-up was on my to-do list this spring.  I can't help but wonder if my current set-up isn't under performing.  Really looking forward to the fitting and testing!

A little background on me:  I first started to play golf at 40 and was, by all accounts, a fairly high ball hitter with some power and a generally reliable fade off the tee.  Now, 30+ years later, 40+ pounds lighter, and several failed tries at finding a draw, things are different -- tee shots are shorter, lower, and wilder.  I have not done any testing outdoors with a launch monitor but recent indoor testing with a Uneekor launch monitor produced these results: Club Speed: 89; Ball speed: 125; Apex: 53'; Launch angle: 11.25°; Carry: 185 yds.; and Total Distance: 204 yds.  I was using my Ping G425 10.5° driver with loft and back weight in standard position.  The shaft is a stock Ping Alta CB 55 R-flex.  (One caveat here -- the simulator bay I used is physically large enough for me to swing freely but is psychologically inhibiting so I don't know how accurate the numbers are.)  

I'm hoping that this fitting process can help me find more accuracy over everything else.  Although, I won't turn down a few more yards as well.

First Impressions

My Orange spec Terra Forza shaft arrived late yesterday so these really are shoot-from-the-hip first impressions. 

The shaft is simple and blends from a carbon fiber look to plain black about 7" below the grip.

FC3B720B-7861-4222-BB78-A74AC4010E98_1_102_a.jpeg.3e0d6941ac7a5ef0256982687fa46a24.jpeg

The graphics on the shaft are not "fussy" or distracting.  The view in standard 10.5° or in the 12° setting is this:

9BC07552-5D3B-4294-B3D2-E12BB0BA1794_1_102_a.jpeg.ae4d6040b197c8aecbd7bd434939595f.jpeg

In the 9° setting, however, the larger "Terra Forza" logo begins to become just barely visible.  I don't know if it is enough to become a distraction since I am unlikely to play the driver in that setting.

285150BA-B73E-461B-BF5B-7A12C396626D_1_102_a.jpeg.433e99f1928cbf71f13a76586cbef417.jpeg

Uninstalled I sense no real difference in weight between the Ping and TF shafts; with the TF shaft installed, however, the club feels head-heavy -- not excessively so but it can be felt.  I am attributing this to the counter-balance of the Ping shaft but I am also going to try to get a swing weight with each shaft installed.

In my introduction (and in other MGS threads) I have mentioned my psychological struggles with hitting driver in the simulator at my home course (Uneekor system).  I did a short test there today but I'm still waiting for the data to arrive by e-mail.  I will say that I do not think it will be an accurate/fair first test.  There is a new Trackman facility that has just opened in town that I hope to try as well.

Rain continues for the next day or two so I'm not sure when I'll get some on course data.  Last week I started using a Shot Scope V5 to track shots.  I'm hoping that I'll get some good info using it.
 

Mid-Test Update

We're getting close to the midpoint in our Terra Forze shaft test.  I have posted weekly comments along the way but thought I would give a very brief comparison of the shafts so fr.  As you may know, I have struggled with the TF Orange shaft that was originally sent.  Some good, but not consistent numbers, with the TF Orange but I felt like I had to really work to get the shaft to produce results.  I added lead tape (approx. 3 grams) to the butt end of the grip to mimic my Alta CB shaft, I added loft, and I decreased loft with no noticeable performance results compared to the stock TF Orange.  I switched back to the Alta CB shaft for a few rounds to get some comparative data.  And, the fantastic folks at Terra Forza must have seen my struggles so they sent me a second shaft, a TF Green to try (my original fitting suggested Green + although the Orange gave me slightly better dispersion.

Over the past month I have used a combination of the Alta CB, TF Orange, and TF Green for approximately 100 tee shots (heavier on the TF Orange than the other two).  Total yards and FIR (if that is the correct acronym) as of today (29 May):

Alta CB:  195.3 yds.; 35%.    TF Orange:  196.8 yds.; 57%.    TF Green:  204.8 yds.; 42%

The FIR percentage for the TF Green is a bit misleading since, for the sake of the test, I have started to use driver on a short par-4 with water along the entire left side of the fairway so I deliberately aim for the right rough (two pine trees that form a great field goal target with the added bonus of a cart path that runs between them -- have made the field goal but not hit the path yet).

The adventure continues.

Can the proper golf shaft for your driver be determined solely by how you use the ground in your swing? As part of this "testers wanted" opportunity with Terra Forza Golf Shafts, we will find out!

About Terra Forza

Terra Forza has taken a new approach to shaft fittings and flexes. In this case, it is best to hear about their claims directly from them.

“Our theory revolved around the idea that how a golfer loads and unloads a shaft is directly correlated to how they use the ground. After many years of studying ground reaction forces (GRF) and pressure traces, Terra Forza Golf was born, validating that theory. After some trial and error, we were able to create a line of golf shafts that matched a golfer's pressure trace and pressure data. Our patented algorithm allows us to recognize those traces, along with all of the pressure data coming from the TF Pressure Plates, and objectively determine the proper shaft for any golfer. We welcome you to the new ERA of fitting shafts, from the ground up.”

Congrats testers! Going to be an interesting follow for sure as I think Terra Forza might be on to something with their study of ground force effects on the swing. But we will see how true (or not) it is!

I'm looking forward to checking out this fitting method and seeing what Terra Forza is all about.  

 

For those nearby that want to try them out send me PM.  I have the full fitting kit and pressure plates from Terra Forza.

I'll have to set up some time at a local range and we can all hit some balls and go through the fitting app!
