@  BingHogan : (31 August 2014 - 04:16 PM) New Miuras CB57 -- Anyone know if there out yet?
@  ROBOPTI : (31 August 2014 - 01:42 PM) 0xh

@  J13 : (31 August 2014 - 06:34 AM) Hope everyone is having a perrrrrrrrfect holiday weekend Posted Image
@  J13 : (31 August 2014 - 06:22 AM) Site looks great Robo keep up the good work brotha!!! Love the GREENIES
@  TWshoot67 : (30 August 2014 - 09:27 PM) Congrats Robo on the site and the shafts. Are you having Veylix design for your shaft co.?
@  ROBOPTI : (30 August 2014 - 10:36 AM) XPHLEXXX.COM IS LIVE !!! ... BSG HYPERLINKS ON PAGE :)
@  BingHogan : (28 August 2014 - 10:20 PM) A zinger is probably right. He's the only one on the GC that knows what he's talking about.
@  TJR : (28 August 2014 - 04:14 PM) Azinger said he could fix Tiger in 10 minutes...
@  youngwaldo : (28 August 2014 - 09:40 AM) Butch is slowing down so taking Tiger will not happen.
@  HossOnMoss : (28 August 2014 - 09:16 AM) I've heard the Grant Waite rumors as well, but that would be so similar to how Foley teaches. That's not to say that Grant couldn't teach him better even with a similar model or style.
@  HossOnMoss : (28 August 2014 - 09:15 AM) Butch already said no and Tiger isn't going to take the left overs. I could see Claude III as an outside possibility otherwise, but I doubt it because of that.
@  BingHogan : (28 August 2014 - 08:57 AM) Gotta be one of the Harmon's. Or all of them. It's not the coach...
@  J13 : (28 August 2014 - 06:04 AM) I'm taking myself out of consideration to be tigers next coach lol
@  ballen : (28 August 2014 - 04:56 AM) I hear Grant Waite will be Tigers next.......
@  BingHogan : (27 August 2014 - 09:38 PM) RIP Tours - unbelievably good!
@  BingHogan : (27 August 2014 - 09:37 PM) Tiger maybe running out of options. Maybe Leadbetter :rolleyes:
@  HossOnMoss : (27 August 2014 - 09:28 AM) Tiger holds interviews for the position. Breed walks up and says, "Come on, Tiger! LET'S DO THIS!!!!" Tiger and I are thinking the same thing....BRUTAL. Haha
@  TWshoot67 : (26 August 2014 - 07:54 PM) Heck Tiger doesn't need to be with Michael Breed he's already a weekly discussion about the golf swing even when he's not playing on the Golf Channel....
@  Golferrob22 : (26 August 2014 - 06:36 PM) I'd put some money on Bob May! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
@  TJR : (26 August 2014 - 06:26 PM) How about Michael Breed? Tiger could be featured on a weekly segment of "The Golf Fix"
@  HossOnMoss : (26 August 2014 - 12:04 PM) I figured it was coming. Who's up next for the position? My money is on Chuck Cook.
@  BingHogan : (25 August 2014 - 02:21 PM) Still would like Tiger to get to at LEAST 18 Majors! That will tick off Chamblee.
@  TWshoot67 : (25 August 2014 - 01:55 PM) Tiger and Foley are done. The split has been announced by both sides1
@  lamont6266 : (23 August 2014 - 07:33 PM) Loved the pix and links to the new Bridgestone J15 line up that were posted!
@  dlab123 : (23 August 2014 - 03:48 AM) Aldila rogue
@  J13 : (22 August 2014 - 08:21 PM) Hoss that sounds like a winner wow. MPete welcome aboard!

@  HossOnMoss : (21 August 2014 - 06:59 PM) As good a combination of smoothness and stability that I have ever felt. Disperion is just crazy good.
@  J13 : (21 August 2014 - 06:54 PM) Aldila Rogue that good??
@  690MBCOMMANDO : (21 August 2014 - 04:20 PM) Saw the GOAT (Jerry Rice) out on the course yesterday. Plunkett a few ago for those Raiders fans
@  HossOnMoss : (21 August 2014 - 03:23 PM) Raise your hand if you've hit the Aldila Rogue and LOVE it!!! :wave:

@  J13 : (10 August 2014 - 02:52 PM) Oh this is shaping up to be an EPIC sunday at the PGA Champ. !!!!!
@  MWP : (08 August 2014 - 09:42 PM) @TW Since Fowler put work into his swing with Butch and cut his hair my opinion on him has completely changed, I'd like to see him squeak this one out.
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 08:08 PM) Although Steve Striker winning would be pretty cool too...
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 08:07 PM) Is anyone else pulling for Rickie Fowler this weekend?
@  KyCutter : (08 August 2014 - 05:13 PM) He should be smarter than that TW. That's my point. If he's hurt. Quit
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 04:11 PM) he's probably going to gut it out hurt himself some more just so he don't have to listen to media and naysayers who say he's faking his injuries
@  TWshoot67 : (08 August 2014 - 04:10 PM) he's already posted an 81 @ The Open few years back.
@  KyCutter : (08 August 2014 - 02:38 PM) Pushed putt. Pulled back. Time to WD. No way will he post 80
@  rfdegen : (08 August 2014 - 10:17 AM) Not contrary, from someone with a bad back, just amazed he's playing this week. Un-freakin-believable.
@  TWshoot67 : (07 August 2014 - 01:08 PM) It's all what have you done lately in todays world. Sorry I just don't give up on Tiger so easy. I'm a fanboy! lol
@  TWshoot67 : (07 August 2014 - 01:07 PM) I love how people are so contrary, less then 10 months ago Tiger had 5 wins and was #1 WGR. Now it's like he should just toss it in an quit his career is over, LOL
@  Qwagmire : (07 August 2014 - 10:47 AM) any guesses when the spasms happen? I got front nine Friday
@  KyCutter : (07 August 2014 - 08:27 AM) I suspect the "spasms" are creeping back into the picture.
@  HossOnMoss : (06 August 2014 - 07:39 PM) He did say it was spasms...real or not. Anyone that didn't think he would tee it up this week is nuts. There's no way he was missing the PGA once he made his statement sunday.
@  KyCutter : (06 August 2014 - 04:06 PM) Tired indeed ROBO…miraculous recovery tho'
@  ROBOPTI : (06 August 2014 - 02:43 PM) Really ??? ... Just a tired show
@  rfdegen : (06 August 2014 - 11:50 AM) Tiger on the range at Valhalla! Unbelievable!
@  HossOnMoss : (05 August 2014 - 09:31 PM) Bing, got tied up all day but I'll catch up with you tomorrow!
@  BingHogan : (05 August 2014 - 08:46 PM) Hoss did,you forget something? Ha ha !
@  HossOnMoss : (05 August 2014 - 04:23 PM) That sounds like an awesome time KYCutter! Have fun!!!
@  KyCutter : (05 August 2014 - 01:44 PM) Pumped to go watch my friend JB Thursday!!
@  BingHogan : (04 August 2014 - 09:45 PM) SOFTLIGHT!, sound like THE perfect shaft for the Alpina guys who want a bit less spin.
@  ROBOPTI : (04 August 2014 - 10:05 AM) VEYLIX SOFTLIGHT now available here at BSG !!!!
@  TWshoot67 : (03 August 2014 - 11:40 AM) Well no one has to worry about Ryder Cup, Tiger re-injured his back anf just WD

@  TWshoot67 : (01 August 2014 - 12:27 PM) Well don't know about Hummingbirds speaking English, but all I was trying to infer was that everytime the media and others toss Tiger aside he does something no one else does in golf. It's amazing how everyone already forgot the guy won 5 times last year. He's been injured all year. I could care less if he plays the Ryder Cup
@  BingHogan : (01 August 2014 - 12:05 PM) Read where some MIT grad had the idea of a 3ft cup. Yeah, that should really work. :lol2:
@  BingHogan : (01 August 2014 - 12:01 PM) So, when Tiger wins the 15th, that should bring golf back from the doldrums!
@  ROBOPTI : (01 August 2014 - 10:05 AM) ... and if humingbirds start speaking English .... yada yada yada ... That is EXACTLY what I saying. It's time to treat Tiger like everyone else .. He has earned that. That "aura" .. that "mystique" INSIDE the ropes - not outside - IS OVER. I think that's why this topic gets so heated. WE - the peeps are still drinking the Koolaide - and that's cool ... TRUST ME!!!! .. Inside the ropes ... They quit drinking that a longtime ago. Do we want to win - or have another episode of "X Factor" - cuz he doesn't concern Europe - AT ALL
@  TWshoot67 : (01 August 2014 - 09:44 AM) So for arguements sake Tiger finds his game wins 2 of last 3 events you still say he don't deserve to play on RC, don't count Tiger out yet!
@  ROBOPTI : (01 August 2014 - 07:43 AM) Too bad he probably will ... even though he doesn't deserve it ... glass half full though - be fun to watch
@  BingHogan : (31 July 2014 - 11:36 PM) T. Watson, best be pickin Tiger for the Ryder or nobody's watching...
@  BingHogan : (31 July 2014 - 11:34 PM) Bettinardi Wedges!? What's next, Bettinardi irons!? Let's hope so!!!
@  TWshoot67 : (31 July 2014 - 05:46 PM) ROBO I like this idea below, only problem for ho's is they will use them all...lol

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.

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!!

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.


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.
