Not sure about the Space port but it's sure easy to add Hot Melt.... LOL

@  TWshoot67 : (22 August 2015 - 12:32 PM)

Yes I really hope Vobra King performs as good as it looks, really like the NEW irons as well the CB's and MB's look fantastic!

@  J13 : (18 August 2015 - 12:43 PM)

NEW COBRA DRIVER - THE KING!!! WOW

@  rfdegen : (17 August 2015 - 08:12 AM)

Spent the day Saturday at Whistling Straights attending the PGA. A great day along Lake Michigan watching some awesome golf!

@  TWshoot67 : (27 July 2015 - 04:58 PM)

yes the new Mizzy line has peaked my interest! Still haven't even tried the 4's and the 5's are out.... sucks being out of golf the last two seasons... but I'm back now!

@  HossOnMoss : (22 July 2015 - 09:07 PM)

I believe that Mizuno is suppposed to be expanding their shaft options soon from what I heard. If not, we can always build them KBS Tour V or whatever shaft you would like here at BSG.

@  HossOnMoss : (21 July 2015 - 01:37 PM)

I'm going to get with my rep and see if I can get some in hand pics shortly! I'm looking forward to trying them out myself. The new MP-25 has me really excited!!!

@  HossOnMoss : (14 July 2015 - 09:43 AM)

Thanks guys!

@  KyCutter : (12 July 2015 - 06:46 PM)

Marcus that is awesome news…glad I decided to ck on BSG tonight!

@  Skip512 : (10 July 2015 - 10:16 PM)

@  ResearchX : (05 July 2015 - 03:31 PM)

After Robert Streb's back nine at the Old White, who at Titleist makes a better putter these days, Scotty Cameron or Bob Vokey???

Congratulations Marcus & wife!!!

@  TWshoot67 : (05 June 2015 - 05:11 PM)

Sorry I missed all the excitement, Congrats Marcus! God Bless you all.

@  J13 : (03 June 2015 - 06:02 PM)

Marcus we just had our 3rd in October which finally was a girl. We are out manned in our house but it's a helluva good time. Congrats again man

@  rfdegen : (03 June 2015 - 09:25 AM)

I called my grandfather with the news of the birth of our second daughter and he said "That's OK. Girls make good fishing partners, too". In addition, I taught them to golf, so we get out once or twice a year when they're home visiting. All good.

@  HossOnMoss : (02 June 2015 - 01:25 PM)

I agree. I've loved every minute of it with my first daughter and another one is fine by me. :D

@  rfdegen : (02 June 2015 - 08:26 AM)

Congratulations, Marcus! We raised two girls. Being constantly surrounded by females and raising girls isn't as bad as some make it out to be.

@  HossOnMoss : (01 June 2015 - 08:43 PM)

Thanks! This one makes 2 girls for us now. So, I'm well out numbered by the women in our household now.

@  Bigskydog : (01 June 2015 - 06:05 PM)

@  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. :)

@  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 : (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!

@  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...

@  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

I see Graphite Design has added a new shaft in the Tour AD line, the AD BB. I spoke to my sales rep and he said it is designed to have a flatter trajectory than the DI and DJ models. Wondering if anyone out there has had a chance to hit one yet, and, if so, curious to see what your take was on it. They will have them at the PGA Show demo day and I'll get the chance to try them then.

I just ordered a Tour AD BB 6x today. I am going to put it in my tour issue Superfast V2 LCG 8.5 TP head. I am currently playing a Tour AD DI 6x. I will do a write up and compare both shafts after I get some reps in with new shaft! Heard a lot of good things about it.

Recently purchased the GD Tour AD BB 6s. I've heard everything from this shaft feels the same as the DI with lower spin and trajectory, to this shaft feels boardy. Taking it out for the first time tomorrow. My previous driver shaft was the Diamana Kai'li 70s.

I have hit it and just got some in stock. It has a similar feel in terms of the smoothness like DI, but it's a firmer feeling bend profile. So, it has less kick and feels tighter I would say, but not boardy IMO. I would say that the difference in feel between DI and BB is like the difference between DI and DJ, but going the other way. Where DJ has just a little more tip action than DI, BB has that much less if that makes sense. Not many shafts that feel this good for a lower launch profile.

Where you able to hit it on a launch monitor? From everything I have heard and ready, it is suppose to spin about 300-400 rpm less than the DI. I got mine today and I going to get it put in a Superfast TP V2 tour issue head tomorrow. Looking foward to it!

Where you able to hit it on a launch monitor? From everything I have heard and ready, it is suppose to spin about 300-400 rpm less than the DI. I got mine today and I going to get it put in a Superfast TP V2 tour issue head tomorrow. Looking foward to it!


I haven't hit it on Trackman yet, but will do so shortly as I just got stock of these. So, I'll be doing some in depth testing. I have heard from guys on tour that it spins anywhere from the same as DI to a few hundred rpm less with lower launch than DI. So, we'll see. It definitely had a nice penetrating flight in the RBZ Tour when I hit it on the range.

I thought that this shaft was a High Kickpoint shaft. It is actually a mid kickpoint shaft, check the graphite design web site. With that being said, I am wondering how it is a low-mid flight shaft? Can someone please explain this to me.

What you see on a simple spec sheet is highly overrated and really doesn't mean a whole lot in reality. Tip stiffness and the overall bend profile cannot really be deteremined from that kind of stuff. Also, one companies idea of a mid kickpoint and another manufacturer's might be pretty different. Also, balance points will have a big effect on trajectory as well. The only thing that most shaft spec sheets are really any good for is weight and even that can feel different due to balance points differences between various shafts. Torque and kick point are almost useless without anything to compare it to.
