@  BingHogan : (25 July 2014 - 10:48 AM) Mizuno, where are those new MP 65's or ???. Hitting an MP 4 w/ KBS V Tour.
@  BingHogan : (25 July 2014 - 10:46 AM) Rusty!? 99% of them would be happy to be that rusty!
@  TJR : (24 July 2014 - 03:52 PM) It would be hard to argue that he isn't the greatest player of all time. It's only a matter of time before he breaks Snead's win record.
@  petter7 : (23 July 2014 - 09:28 PM) Based on 2013 accomplishments I don't think the "he's washed up" argument is valid. He's washed up because his game is rusty recovering from back surgery?? Maybe it's those gnarly jowls he's growing. :lol4: Posted Image
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 08:42 PM) That would still only be about 1/2 the wins of what Tiger will have when he hangs up the spikes.... But yet the haters will hate and that's life. Tiger still has 10 more years to win on PGA Tour .
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 08:39 PM) Well Dave we must be in the minority or too old to realize who's still one of the best golfers in the history of the game. When/ IF Rory and Speith have 50 wins in their careers then maybe I'll hold them in esteem with TIGER!
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 08:34 PM) Sorry MrParr1Noid, it was my auto spell check, I didn't even notice until you said that, No slip showing here.
@  petter7 : (23 July 2014 - 08:28 PM) Hmmm. Let's see…Tiger wins 5 times, leading money winner, player-of-the-year, #1 in the world, LAST YEAR!! And that was with a bad back!! Back is fixed with no more pain and he's still fit as any other tour player and he's washed up? LMAO
@  J13 : (23 July 2014 - 08:16 PM) Time will tell with Tiger but I hope Rory just doesn't disappear again for 2 years.
@  MrParr1Noid : (23 July 2014 - 08:15 PM) Then I suggest you re-read your response to me about 4 posts down. Your slip is showing .. :) .. Don't have time for your silly games either .. I"m out ..
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 07:56 PM) I don't know where you got shit 67 from shoot67 but it shows your mentality
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 07:53 PM) Tiger is far from done , he's got plenty of years to win b4 Champions Tour
@  MrParr1Noid : (23 July 2014 - 07:52 PM) I just have to laugh at that one TWshiit67, not about trashing Tiger but about Tiger's growning jowls like an old man.. :)
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 07:52 PM) Every time tiger doesn't win his career is over say so called experts then he rattles off 5 wins in one year, neither Rory or Speith have done that in any one season. And tiger diid it last year. Once Tiger plays a few more rounds he will win again.
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 07:49 PM) I just have to laugh at that one Mr Parr1Noid, not about protecting Tiger just laughing at GC proclaiming or anointing the next greatest every other week. Edit: Fixed Spelling,
@  MrParr1Noid : (23 July 2014 - 07:18 PM) Guys are so overly protective of Tiger. Tiger won't ever be the same (young) as he once was.. :) Guys like Rory and Speith are (younger) just coming into their game.. :) Tiger should be getting ready for the seniors tour cause he ain't never going to compete with these young guys again.
@  J13 : (23 July 2014 - 06:08 PM) haha agree TW. Speith is the new Rory?
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 04:24 PM) J- all it would take is for Speith to win his next outing or dare I say win the PGA and then he'd be the next great one! I mean he is 5 years younger then Rory!!
@  J13 : (23 July 2014 - 06:23 AM) I can't keep up with all of the "new" Tiger's in the game. I guess Speith is not in vogue anymore
@  ROBOPTI : (22 July 2014 - 11:20 AM) CALLAWAY V SERIES DRIVER PHOTO ON USGA LIST ;)
@  TWshoot67 : (21 July 2014 - 09:29 PM) Funny two weeks ago Adam Scott was the next coming of Tiger, now it's Rory again. neither can sniff what TIGER has done!
@  TWshoot67 : (21 July 2014 - 09:28 PM) J13 glad you said something, I have to laugh every time I watch or read anything from GC.
@  MrParr1Noid : (21 July 2014 - 08:14 PM) HossOnMoss, thanks for the welcome .. And? J13, when will Tiger be back .. LMAO .. :9:
@  J13 : (21 July 2014 - 07:50 PM) So all within a matter of days Rory is unstoppable, Tiger is finished, Fowler is now a rival of Rory?
@  drumdog : (21 July 2014 - 04:13 PM) Glad I could finally get on here. Not sure what my problem was, but now I'm here!
@  HossOnMoss : (21 July 2014 - 12:41 PM) Welcome to BSG MrParr1Noid...glad to have you here!
@  Dscvrr_St Louis : (21 July 2014 - 10:57 AM) Kudos to Fowler and Garcia for making a push and forcing Rory to play well to maintain his lead!!
@  ROBOPTI : (21 July 2014 - 10:25 AM) WHAT UP CREW ... BIG Congrats to Rory !!! Wouldn't you love to see him & Adam Scott show up at the same place with the MacDaddy A game going ... WOW
@  TWshoot67 : (20 July 2014 - 11:32 AM) Congrats to Rory on the win, also congrats to my man RF with a great showing in another major, should have one soon! Great playing boys!

@  petter7 : (14 July 2014 - 01:14 PM) I believe Mizuno measurements are without the grip on the club vs. Titleist with the grip installed.
@  HossOnMoss : (14 July 2014 - 10:42 AM) Correct. They measure differently and are actually the same length.
@  TJR : (14 July 2014 - 05:45 AM) Melonhead - 38" (Titleist) 37.75" (Mizuno) - difference is probably the way the clubs are measured.
@  MN NICE : (14 July 2014 - 05:27 AM) MONDAYS ARE FOR SUCKERS!

This is a new ongoing feature that we will be doing on BSG for members to give their feedback to others on particular shafts or heads. Rather than your typical full reviews, we figured that it would be a nice idea to start threads on various products that are out there which BSG members can either ask questions about or share their own experiences with. Since guys regularly have questions about how a particular shaft or head that they are interested in compares to something else, this will give everyone an opportunity to give feedback on a specific product while at the same creating an archive of player feedback and general product info. much like a FAQ if you will. So, please post away if you have a question or want to give your thoughts on the featured product.

I will randomly select different things to discuss based on what's new or what I hear and see guys asking about frequently. The first product that we would like to start with is:

Matrix Ozik TPHD Shafts

The TP series Oziks are designed to be the most consistent and best feeling shafts on the market. The combination of materials which include boron, zylon, and GMAT layers along with HD technology create a shaft that feels incredibly stable and smooth at the same time. My experience with the Matrix Ozik TP series shafts through playing and testing has shown that these shafts deliver the unparalleled dispersion and feel that you expect from a shaft in this price range. The low spin profile also creates a penentrating ball flight that many players need in order to maximize distance.

The TPHD is definitely my favorite shaft I swing pretty hard and fast and have ho'd around all the newest shafts but stil always go back to my TPHD. The feel of the shaft through impact is so solid and responsive it just gives me added confidence with the driver.

I got lucky enough to get a TP7HD for my R9 Tour 3-wood. I know the Matrix spec sheet lists it at low launch but I certainly do not find it to be low launch at all. Just high, strong, flat, penetrating ballflight. My 3-wood is CLEARLY the best 3-wood I have ever had and the shaft is a huge reason for it. Feels ultra smooth and stable without a hint of feeling boardy. Just really a great shaft, makes me wonder what a matching TP6HD would be like in my SuperTri...

I have a similar experience with a TP6HD in a driver shaft. I love the feel and dispersion pattern. i don't find it to be particularly low launch at all, and I tend to be a low launch player. I am always tinkering with different shafts, but I come back to this in the end. I wish I had the funds to try on in my fairway wood.

In regards to TP5HD, it was certainly geared towards a completely different type of player than TP6HD or TP7HD. I suppose that in general, the average consumer who spends this kind of money on a shaft and plays that weight range is probably more likely to fit into the TP5HD profile than the 6 or 7....totally different animals. A little odd to make that jump within a family of shafts, but it also makes sense in a way. Luckily, you still have XCon-5 and HD5 as options.

Nice collection my friend. Posted Image That mustard color on the gold TPHD reminds me of some good old Hot Dog Heaven, although it's a little more Grey Poupon like than what I would use. Still need to head up there and check out the delicacies in your neck of the woods. Posted Image

What would you say the performance differences are between the XCON 5 and HD5??

Mainly just a little lower launch and firmer, tighter feel that the HD shafts are known for.

I think you already told me this. Memory slippage. :D I think the only other
shaft that will fit me as well as the 5 probably will be the Griffin.

That's ok, I've been told that I like to repeat myself at times anyways. It's a win, win for the both of us. Posted Image

This thread may put me over the edge for a TP6HD for the driver. I won't be able to hold out much longer...

The TP6HD stopped me from :pimp: shafts for at least a whole year! That alone should say enough about this shaft. There are two things that stick out to me when I played this shaft... dispersion and lag (or lack of).

Yes, the feel is great but it's nice to be on a tee box knowing that if you put a decent swing on the ball, it's not going to deviate too much off it's intended line.

I mention lag because I used to be a low launcher with the driver. It seemed that shafts with lower kick points, that should launch higher, actually launched lower for me. Shafts like the TP6HD which says it's low launch, with a tip stiff, I actually launch higher. To me, it seems like this is the case because the tip of the shaft keeps up with my hands and doesn't lag.

Also, be careful with the flex on this shaft. An X in this is more stout that other X's.

J.C.- if you're listening... TPHD technology with a mid bend point please!!

There's at least one TP4HD in existence (I've hit it, too) maybe you can talk the owner out of that...

Amazing. amazing stick, and although over the long run I'd be much better off with something much heavier it was certainly fun to swing.

Is the TP7HD at 45.5" going to feel significantly more heavy that an TP6HD at the same length? I might have a chance to get ahold of a brand new TP7HD for an incredible price from a friend in another forum but I was really looking for a TP6HD. I'm thinking about jsut going for it since it's only a 6 gram or so different, it hasn't been tipped or anything (absolutely brand new), and I'm a pretty fast swinger myself. Any help on this? Thanks!

I don't know that I would say that it will feel significantly heavier, but it all depends on the strength of the player. If you are a stronger player with good clubhead speed, then the weight shouldn't be an issue.

This is a new ongoing feature that we will be doing on BSG for members to give their feedback to others on particular shafts or heads. Rather than your typical full reviews, we figured that it would be a nice idea to start threads on various products that are out there which BSG members can either ask questions about or share their own experiences with. Since guys regularly have questions about how a particular shaft or head that they are interested in compares to something else, this will give everyone an opportunity to give feedback on a specific product while at the same creating an archive of player feedback and general product info. much like a FAQ if you will. So, please post away if you have a question or want to give your thoughts on the featured product.

I will randomly select different things to discuss based on what's new or what I hear and see guys asking about frequently. The first product that we would like to start with is:

Matrix Ozik TPHD Shafts

The TP series Oziks are designed to be the most consistent and best feeling shafts on the market. The combination of materials which include boron, zylon, and GMAT layers along with HD technology create a shaft that feels incredibly stable and smooth at the same time. My experience with the Matrix Ozik TP series shafts through playing and testing has shown that these shafts deliver the unparalleled dispersion and feel that you expect from a shaft in this price range. The low spin profile also creates a penentrating ball flight that many players need in order to maximize distance.

How does this shaft compare to the F7M2 LTD in terms of feel and performance? I really like the feel of the LTD, much smoother than other low spinning shafts.

Feel wise it is very smooth like F7M2 LTD, but at the same time TP7HD has firmer overall bend profile which makes it feel stiffer. With the material make up though, it does not have harsh or boardy feel that you would normally find with a lower launch shaft. Ball flight wise, I find that the spin is pretty similar although TP7HD launches lower than F7M2 LTD.
