I'll kick this off. I recently had a couple of sessions on the LM to try to figure out my driving woes. What I found out was the set up I was up was HORRIBLE for my swing. I had a Ping G10 9* w/ UST ProForce V2 65S; I knew the shaft wasn't a great fit, but I got it for so cheap, I couldn't pass it up. Based on the height and length I was hitting my drives, I knew I had way too much spin, but the numbers were shocking. With that set up and an average swing speed of 120.5 mph, I was averaging a meager 260yd, with a .....wait for it..... average 6500 rpm spin rate...yikes. On one swing were I really went after it, I hit 125.6 mph with a spin rate of 9300 and a carry of 257yds, LOL. It was only my friend and I in the store, so the fitter was back there hanging out with us. Without me having to pay for a full fitting, the fitter was giving me suggestions of what to try (as well as putting some stuff together off the fitting rack). Even with the stuff of the cart, we couldn't come up with a good fit. I pulled a Cally Diablo Octane Tour off the demo rack, it was 10.5*, with a "made for" Project X Black 6.0, which gave me an average spin rate of 2800 and average distance of 291, but still had a 17-18* launch angle. I came home and rebuilt me Cobra S9-1 ProS 9.5* with a USPG Black Ops XS. I went back to the LM and got some good spin (2300 rpm) and ss (120.1 mph) numbers, with an average distance of 293yds, but I still had a 16-18* launch angle. I am going to get a new driver for next season and I was thinking about looking into a Rage or Element 6* or 7.5*. Do you have any suggestions based on the numbers below? Also, if you're looking for a MGS forum reviewer/tester, I'd be more than willing. :D

 

SS - 120.5 mph average (115 when I NEED to hit a FW and 125 when I really go after one)

Hoping to achieve a 13-15* launch angle with around 2300-2800 rpm spin (hard to achieve without a full fitting, but included it anyway)

 

Thanks for the help

Jbones!! Thanks for the info brotha, and YIKES big spin on first setup. I hope guys can see that just cause BUBBA is distance leader on PGA Tour, doesnt meant everyone can get that distance...its why no one uses those in a sport where only Distance matters....BUT...were in the Golf scene now, so here goes what I would want you to hit in a Golf setup:

 

NO reason to go lower loft, with out heads they will mainly play a big role in Spin and not launch angles. Why our guys can hit 3 degree heads and still I have 70 and up hitters in 6 degrees with 125 swing speed. Heck Rick Barry hits a 6 degree and has a 125-130 and cant get the thing airborne! But hand it to Fred Hooter who is 68 with same swing speed and he can get 12 degree launch all day long.

 

Biggest thing for you will be shaft kick point, that being said, get into our Tour shaft model. That has a HIGH KICK big time for guys who need to hit lower. That will be the biggest game changer for ball flight. NOW, im not saying just get that shaft and your good, With the ELEMENT head, your going to get what all golfers want, CONTROL CONTROL CONTROL.....This is our Golf driver, so your going to have easier swings and still get tons of distance with lots of control. Plus with our adjustable heel and toe weights in the heads, you can mess around with static weight of driver head and ball flight pattern.

 

So...i want you in a ELEMENT 9 degree, Tour shaft at Stiff flex...its a stout shaft at 45 inches, if you wanna go 46 inches, go X in flex. We can pure all our shafts and you will get the full weight kit from 1gram standard weights then 2-4-6-8-10-12 gram weighted plugs. Thanks again for posting, PLEASE SEND ME MORE.... thanks guys....Vince

Thanks for the response. The reason I was thinking 6 or 7.5*, is because I have the RHCP in 7.5 and its one of the longest with my preferred trajectory that I've ever hit. Do you have an official launch date for the Element?

I'm interested in seeing spin numbers of the Element versus the Rage. I've hit the Rage before (and hope that the guy that did a touney with some Krank guys here locally does another this year and I get to go to it) and I found it to work well for a scramble driver setup at 48" and in XX flex, and the feel was great. Just curious what the differences will be in the Rage vs the Element. Hopefully I win the slogan contest and can put it to the test, lol. And if you need another "official" tester, I'd be glad to throw my name in the hat too. LOL

Are the numbers going to be pulled using the same shaft/player or will you guys use a robot? Just curious is why I ask.

Honestly, I didn't know much about Krank golf before seeing the Rage and new Element pictures here. But I'm already becoming a big fan after visiting the website. Those are a couple of really nice drivers.

I got a Rage from them and no problem getting a hold of them. I wasn't asking on the forum though. I discussed the Element with them. I like the weighting options it has. I like the look of the Rage better though. It looks smaller even though it's still 460 cc. I believe they told me the Element would be rolling out in March if I remember right. I'm still curious how it compares to the Rage. I'm hoping the up coming driver testing will have them both included.

Sorry guys....family emergency and having a baby girl put me away for some time from office and work. Back now!! Element will be in shop late Jan and throughout Feb...I believe high lofts coming in first than low lofts following suit. Testing was put on hold to get numbers for guys...but will get this back on as soon as we can. The hitters will be our guys with playing swings, scratch handicap and play on Gateway and other tours. PGA professionals and fitters. Will put vid of swings on as well to show.
