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!

@  gtjr1975 : (18 February 2015 - 03:56 PM) Hey anyone know what shaft has a creme and gray color weave at tip I have pics posted in forums.
@  Shambles : (17 February 2015 - 05:47 PM) I have a set shafted to those 200's. Way soft and kind of fun.
@  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.

Hello Everyone,
As I get older and my swing slows, I'm thinking that a softer tip driver and possibly three wood shaft would benefit my swing speed (or lack there of). Any ideas on high quality shafts that might work for a 100 mph swinging old guy? Thanks in advance.

Xcon5 for the driver. It isn't super high end, but Aldila NVS in a 65 or 75g for the 3W might work.

100 mph isn't swinging it so slowly that you should need something softer in the tip based just on clubhead speed unless you are just low spin, low launch by nature of your swing mechanics. Regardless of age, a softer tip shaft will not necessarily increase distance unless you really need that.

That said, the Graphite Design QuattroTech series are good options for anyone who needs more spin. Diamana Blue Boards may even work as well unless you need something really soft as would the Matrix Code line. It just depends on how extreme you need to go.

A friend of mine switched to a redboard in his driver and immediately gained yardage - in fact, he qualified for the US Senior Open and Am last year after not even qualifying for the state am the previous 5 or so years. He thinks that switch had a lot to do with it - of course, the belly putter had something to do with it, too!

The redboard is pretty extreme, though - especially if you're still tripping trip digits in SS (of course, my friend is as well). But it would NOT be my recommendation to START with a redboard. The best thing you can do is find yourself a good fitter with the appropriate tools - as Hoss says, you may just be very low spin. My SS is around 110 and I need a shaft/head combo that will give me a little more spin as well - I don't understand the reasons why, but that's how I've been fit...I know it's a tired refrain around here, but spend the $100 - $150 to get fitted properly - you won't regret it.

From what I've read (haven't hit it....yet)the new 'ilima might be a good alternative. Softer tip, more geared for smoother swingers, low spin.........not to mention way cool graphics.

In fairway woods you might consider Fuji SAPPHIRE, TRTI-46, PRO-Ti 857, or Pro95.

A newer Altus might also work for you.

I fully concur with the X-Con 5 suggestion for the driver. I still swing in the 110-113mph rage and haven't found anything better.

Try an Oban Revenge!! The N°6 with a 4 flex would fit perfectly for what you want.

Easy to move right to left and long with lil effort. very smooth shaft.

Thanks for all the input. I was hoping someone might suggest an xcon 6 in a 3 wood head. I have a mint tour issued Big Bertha 3+ with a Fuji 757 tour spec stiff that plays way too stiff for me. I was thinking of trying the xcon 6 in that head, I just don't want to ruin the shaft by cutting it down and not being able to re-use it. I'm going to post a question in another forum to see if anyone has used the xcon 6 in a 3 wood head. If anyone reads this and has tried that combo, please chime in with your thoughts. Thanks again.

The X-Con 6 is a very different shaft than the X-Con 5. Torque is way lower. Where did your "soft tip" proclivities go?

Those of us who pay attention to ACCRA have noted the evolution of their line. This year they added an "RT" model (responsive tip). Reports from their Tour Rep have always been that most Tour Pros don't bother to "match" their driver and fairway metal shafts. Not only that, they found the Tour Pros seemed to end up with surprisingly soft tip model shafts in their fairways. That was said as the reason that ACCRA is now going with a "next weight up, same flex value, no tip trim" model.

If you insist on that "high end" position, one shaft that has not been mentioned is the ACCRA RT in your choice of weights and flexes. If you just want to take a flyer on a soft tipped shaft that you would "never" put into a fairway metal - I went with a GD YS 6 in a Sonartec that tingled my scalp.

Have we been "wrong" all along by just taking the next weight up in a given shaft model and tipping it 1". That's been the standard operating procedure for years. This could signal a shift in the "conventional wisdom".
