Got the tickets for the Open next month at Chambers. This should be interesting test. Let the WHINING and COMPLAINING BEGIN! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Posted Image OMG I LOVE !!!! Posted Image looking at this .. Someone tackle me - LOVE !!

@  slick : (16 May 2015 - 10:30 PM)

installed 80X in the driver, playing @44.5". LOVE IT!!!!

@  slick : (12 May 2015 - 05:28 PM) Speirsy, gonna need in person proof lol
@  Speirsy11 : (11 May 2015 - 09:25 PM) it is Slick. I'm hitting iron shots I haven't hit in 10 years and pain free!
@  slick : (11 May 2015 - 05:00 PM) Speirsy, that will be a great combo.
@  rfdegen : (11 May 2015 - 08:06 AM) Great win by Rickie at the Players. Now if he could only ditch the ugly rapper hats.
@  Speirsy11 : (10 May 2015 - 08:20 AM) Best part of turning 40? Graphite in my irons.... Rocketbladez N heads/Aerotech 110cw x = saving my elbow!
@  ROBOPTI : (01 May 2015 - 07:26 AM) FRAKE !!!! ... Bro - Those are 2 RADICALLY !!!! different shafts ... I'd be curious to hear what you think between the 2.
@  Quantum : (01 May 2015 - 05:10 AM) I am playing matrix ozik 130 6.0 stiff and wanted to switch to aldila tour 115 stiff. I am hoping it plays similar except lighter in weight?
@  FRAKETRAIN448 : (30 April 2015 - 08:50 AM) Great day of testing at the Ely Callaway Center - dialed in the new XR LD Heads with XPHLEXXX & FUJI Prototype shafts. Great numbers for first time out this year.
@  J13 : (29 April 2015 - 12:19 PM) All i know is whoever that guy is on the left talking to Mike is a stud. that's all i'm saying. :)

@  HossOnMoss : (28 April 2015 - 07:30 PM) :7: I'll probably just stick to my day job (which doesn't suck either), but it's always fun to "get inside the ropes" on tour when I have the chance.
@  J13 : (28 April 2015 - 05:06 PM) Really happy for Mike. Seemed like a good guy and he now knows your the lucky charm. You might have a new job :)
@  HossOnMoss : (27 April 2015 - 04:25 PM) He kept the nerves in check pretty well all week, but we just had a couple of mental mistakes on the starting nine (back side) on sunday. Regardless of the scores (which I still can't comprehend), that course wasn't playing that easy last week. I fully expected a -2 cut line and never even considered -5 as possibility for the cut. (Insert cliche here) These guys are good!
@  Qwagmire : (26 April 2015 - 11:51 PM) :thumbsup: :4: so glad he could right the ship after a shaky start on round 4. Nerves? I would have been shaking like a dog shitting peach seeds
@  HossOnMoss : (26 April 2015 - 07:48 PM) Thanks guys! We had an awesome week. It's not often that a monday qualifier actually makes the cut on the PGA Tour. So, a T-36 finish is pretty good all things considered. Hopefully just the start of more great things to come for a really nice and talented guy.
@  Qwagmire : (25 April 2015 - 09:41 PM) Keep it going Hoss!
@  J13 : (24 April 2015 - 08:56 PM) Hoss keep reading those greens at the Zurich!!!!! Mike is playing great man!!!!
@  TWshoot67 : (16 April 2015 - 11:01 AM) J thats cool wish I could get to one of those PGA shows soon, must be ho heaven....
@  J13 : (15 April 2015 - 07:22 PM) I didnt bother the counter balance line Converge caught my eye at the PGA Merch Show
@  TWshoot67 : (15 April 2015 - 02:14 PM) Did anyone try and purchase the Nike 006? No luck here, I think I needed to be a robot
@  J13 : (14 April 2015 - 10:49 AM) Speith is a stud and seems like an overall great ambassador for the game. I'm a fan
@  HossOnMoss : (13 April 2015 - 09:26 AM) It was a great week to watch. Speith was as impressive as ever and it was in my opinion equally impressive to see how much Tiger was able to turn his game around in time for Augusta. Pretty remarkable feats by both players. Should be a great summer of golf ahead of us!
@  HossOnMoss : (12 April 2015 - 08:53 PM) That was an awesome display of golf this week by Speith. I don't know how anyone could not like watching that guy play golf.
@  BingHogan : (11 April 2015 - 11:34 PM) I think he'll continue to mow em' down at Augusta. Seems like his destiny. Anyone who goes to a Jesuit High School is OK in my book!
@  TheMechanic : (11 April 2015 - 12:19 PM) who's gonna make a move today @ Augusta
@  BingHogan : (11 April 2015 - 08:08 AM) Tiger WHO!?
@  TheMechanic : (10 April 2015 - 12:13 PM) Spieth tearing it up today again....
@  TheMechanic : (09 April 2015 - 03:08 PM) Tiger needs to stop dipping into the ball
@  TheMechanic : (09 April 2015 - 03:07 PM) jordan spieth on FIRE!!!!
@  TWshoot67 : (04 April 2015 - 11:17 AM) Well I guess everyones heard Tiger announced yesterday his in......

@  TWshoot67 : (02 April 2015 - 05:12 PM) J13 I hope he played extremely well...lol
@  rfdegen : (02 April 2015 - 09:38 AM) Played the first nine of the season last eve. Chasing the geese off the course. Wife not happy stepping in their $h!t. Great to get out on a 60* spring Wisconsin day.
@  J13 : (01 April 2015 - 01:20 PM) Well he was spotted there yesterday so I have to think that was a round to see if the game is ready. Hope he played well.
@  TWshoot67 : (01 April 2015 - 10:26 AM) I agree I can't see him missing the Masters.....
@  HossOnMoss : (01 April 2015 - 10:26 AM) I'll be absolutely shocked if he doesn't play the Masters. I never had a doubt that he would return for Augusta. So, I'll be REALLY surprised if he doesn't play.
@  BingHogan : (01 April 2015 - 08:08 AM) He's gotta play next week. Can't believe he would pass on Augusta...
@  J13 : (31 March 2015 - 07:58 AM) Rumor has it Tiger is making a big announcement in the next 24 hours
@  rfdegen : (30 March 2015 - 01:09 PM) Golf Course opens tomorrow! Also looking forward to UW vs Kentucky on Saturday! Go Badgers!

@  BingHogan : (15 February 2015 - 07:01 PM) Thanks Hoss! I put them away until I got a little older... Probably waited too long! :rolleyes:
@  HossOnMoss : (15 February 2015 - 05:10 PM) Bing, those are Dynamic Gold S200 .355 taper iron shafts.
@  BingHogan : (15 February 2015 - 04:07 PM) Anyone have an idea what shafts these are: DGISL200? Just found these in the garage and remember buying them about 10+ years ago. Thanks!
@  Laars : (04 February 2015 - 10:09 AM) Carroll was tricked into doing what he did. Pats don't call a time out, putting it all on Hawks either scoring or losing. Now you have no time, only 30 seconds. If Carroll does a running play first, and doesn't get in, he then MUST throw twice in order to win because he has no time left. Giving the advantage to NE. Go with the pass play first, then run twice. He picked the smarter plays, but in reality, he should give Lynch a shot, and if he doesn't get in, you lose. He looked at having 3 chances better then one. Belichick counted on Carroll doing that, going with 3 chances instead of one chance with Lynch, which on paper, 3 chances looks like the smart play. Carroll got out coached.
@  TWshoot67 : (03 February 2015 - 05:55 PM) J13 I feel pretty much the same. even two days later and I can't figure out why passing even entered anyones mind after the result of the previous play running the ball???????? :spank: :WTF: :nono: :crazy: :crazy:
@  J13 : (02 February 2015 - 07:57 PM) Carrolls call at the end makes me want to stick a nail gun against my temple and unload a clip. What a moron
@  Qwagmire : (02 February 2015 - 04:01 PM) Pats-Hawks, Texas-USC, more NCAA violations than any coach in history? Carroll has reaped what he sowed
@  HossOnMoss : (02 February 2015 - 09:51 AM) That was pretty hard to watch. Not a fan for either team, but it's painful to think that Carroll will be living with that choice for the rest of his life.
@  TWshoot67 : (01 February 2015 - 09:44 PM) now the biggest cheating nfl coach will go down in history as the best post seaon coach ever,,, blahh

Does anyone have any info on the aldila atx shafts? Supposedly they are super hot on tour but long story short I hit the atx 65 blue x shaft and I was bombing it.

I'm currently playing fubuki k which is supposed to be high launch but I was launching the atx blue way higher with little spin

They say its a mid launch and the green is low launch from what I was told and the shaft felt really really smooth

I've never like aldila shafts. I've tried many and hit them all equally shitty for some reason but this thing seeems legit for me.....

There is very little info that I could find on it but I launched it noticeably higher than my k with same weight and flex???,

Anyone else try them??

mjl, I did find this review from a guy that has hit these shafts. I'm not sure what his skill level is though. Might be helpful to you...


These shafts have very active middle sections. They spun a bit more than I would prefer and launched a tad higher. I'm keeping the Tour AD BB7x in the bag for now. If I had to describe an ATX, it's like a combo of a RIP Beta and a Phenom. Or perhaps a Phenom with an even softer mid section. So stiff butt, soft mid, stiff tip. I definetly preferred the Tour Green over the Tour Blue. The few I did hit well were higher launching with mid spin. Distance was ok but not much roll for me. My hard late release I kept getting stuck or losing feeling of where the driver head was. I let my buddy hit a few with my driver, we thought he absolutely killed one and it ended up next to his gamer 3W (which he absolutely crushes every time.) Both were dead center of the FWY, 285y out, but spin made the ATX rise and distance suffered. It may not be for me but for guys with a smoother transition I bet it feels nice with perfect kick and the spin you want. Obviously it works for Carbrera who used to play the ProtoPype. Each swing is different, so don't judge the shaft by my critique. Maybe some more who have hit it can chime in how it performed for them. Its obviously popular on tour, maybe tipping and length are critical? I tipped both mine 3/4" and played them around 45.5", choked up to 45".

I came across the blue version 75 X in a G25 9.5 that had been owned by a champions tour member. I currently game a 8.5 Razr Fit with AD DI 6x tipped an inch. ATX blue had no tipping to my knowledge. Hit 25 or so balls on the launch monitor. Felt very smooth. Launch and spin were a bit high compared to my current set up. With the proper tipping or in the Green version, it might be a better fit for me. Could definitely see this being a solid shaft based off my limited experience with it.

So Lee Westwood is hitting a 10.5?
I had to go to an 8 degree to keep spin off and really struggle to hit the driver on off days....
I would be more than willing to bet he has a negative attack angle........
How the hell is he hitting a 10.5 or 11.5 with a 65 gram shaft? Do they tip it 8 inches???
I am thinking he must have a 10.5 that is cast really open???

Id love to have the forgiveness of higher lofted head but into the wind I hit parachuters.....
Anyone got any input on this?????

My experience is you can only affect spin so much with shafts until you have to decrease loft.....

I had a titleist head 9.5 and tried 20 different shat an tipping schemes and always poofed it into the wind

Finally I got an 8 from hoss and its a penetrating ball flight but much harder to hit and turn over.... The titleist was a retail head

Do these guys go higher loft and really open to get penetrating trajectory?

Seems its the same thing Michelson has always fought ...... going to real low lofts to keep spin down

even my super deep 9.5 into the wind hits poofers

any thoughts???

I see these guys like Westwood and Dustin Johnson hitting these high lofted drivers and it makes me wanna cry

Two words mjl...

SPIN LOFT

That's the angle created between the club direction (AoA) and the club oreientation (Dynamic Loft). The greater that angle is, the
more spin there will be imparted to the ball. I would bet Westwood has a flat AoA (zero degrees) and he keeps the delivered loft
from being increased with his release.

If you want to lower spin and avoid that parachute ball flight, control the angle between your AoA and dynamic loft at impact. You
can effect the spin loft with a lower lofted driver, but, if your swing has a tendency to produce a higher degree of spin loft, you'll
get too much spin anyways. A really stiff shaft and low lofted club can be effective in reducing spin, but, for a lot of amateurs who
have good swing speed and a high spin loft, it's really just a band aid solution.

Flatten out that AoA and control that delivered dynamic loft at impact and hit the ball on the right place of the club face and you'll
never balloon another tee shot again. That's assuming you have a quality shaft/club/ball setup.

Plenty of information to be had on the internet...just google "Spin Loft" and click on images and you'll see plenty on the subject.

Two words mjl...

SPIN LOFT

That's the angle created between the club direction (AoA) and the club oreientation (Dynamic Loft). The greater that angle is, the
more spin there will be imparted to the ball. I would bet Westwood has a flat AoA (zero degrees) and he keeps the delivered loft
from being increased with his release.

If you want to lower spin and avoid that parachute ball flight, control the angle between your AoA and dynamic loft at impact. You
can effect the spin loft with a lower lofted driver, but, if your swing has a tendency to produce a higher degree of spin loft, you'll
get too much spin anyways. A really stiff shaft and low lofted club can be effective in reducing spin, but, for a lot of amateurs who
have good swing speed and a high spin loft, it's really just a band aid solution.

Flatten out that AoA and control that delivered dynamic loft at impact and hit the ball on the right place of the club face and you'll
never balloon another tee shot again. That's assuming you have a quality shaft/club/ball setup.

Plenty of information to be had on the internet...just google "Spin Loft" and click on images and you'll see plenty on the subject.

You think Westwood is flat Aoa?

I would think he's hitting down but maybe not

I heard tour average is -1, I'm about -2

I saw somehwere Justin rose was playing 9.3 and 6 degrees open maybe ??!

I'm thinking they gotta all be opening the shot out of their drivers

I'm pretty sure that Rose's specs for the face angle are including the sole dial being set open on his R1 which does not affect loft. So, his head isn't delofted as you would think.

Do you think that may be accurate as to the trend on tour? Higher loft but more open faces to flatten out trajectory or no?

I cant believe Lee Westwood could hit an 11.5.

I heard nick watney hits a 12 and he can move it

I saw a spec sheet that someone posted a long time ago, claiming that Tiger is actually hitting close to 11* loft driver despite it's stamped 8.5* on the head.

I do agree that it is all the result of your swing and tendencies. Getting the right shaft-head combo worked, but it can only help you so much.

IMO the easiest way if to fix your -ve AoA and check your impact point on the face of your driver. I do not think -2 AoA alone will create a a parachute. Just my 2-cents

Ill tell you what else I think is crazy is that with all the movements in a golf swing that a 1 degree difference in driver loft can consistently make such a dramatic difference in flight and performance.

I mean think about all the factors and movements coming into impact and 1 degree makes a difference.....

That's frickin nuts to me....

And no Im not stoned right now....

Now that RIP iron shafts are taking over this boards buzz, does anyone have feedback on the new Aldila ATX shafts specifically the blue?

D, I'm playing the ATX blue 85 tx flex in my stage 2 hl 3wood. was playing the di8x. feel is the same to me, but on my trackman, little higher launch and little less spin. after about 40 balls each going back and forth, 9 carry yards on average with the blue, but the dispersion was significantly better with blue. im one of the lucky few with a rouge (#29 of 50) thats in my sldr 10.5. now that combo is completely ridiculous
