@  BingHogan : (26 January 2015 - 09:54 AM) Ditto that Joe! I like em because you can have the correct loft and sole grind.
@  houstonjoe : (24 January 2015 - 03:46 PM) never been more excited about a release..Hogan Ft. Worth irons..Hoss, ready to order my set!!
@  rfdegen : (23 January 2015 - 08:38 AM) We'll have a good time in Waco. Playing with a retired friend and his brother, who played for the Packers in the 70's.
@  rfdegen : (22 January 2015 - 09:30 AM) Heading to Texas on a sales trip. Twin Rivers Golf Club, Waco. Second course to be determined in Fort Worth.
@  BingHogan : (21 January 2015 - 06:38 PM) Hey rfdegen, where you playing in February?
@  BingHogan : (21 January 2015 - 06:35 PM) Thanks Hoss! Sounds like they made the irons to my exact specs and added the Hogan name. Good things happen to those who wait!
@  rfdegen : (21 January 2015 - 02:02 PM) 6 days of scuba diving St. Thomas coming up next week! No golf this time. That happens in mid-February.
@  HossOnMoss : (21 January 2015 - 09:51 AM) Bing: You got it my friend. These are right up your alley!
@  BingHogan : (21 January 2015 - 09:28 AM) HOSS: Please let me know when the HOGAN irons are available. i will order a 8 and 6 iron with KBS V Tour S.
@  ROBOPTI : (20 January 2015 - 02:15 PM) KyCutter - High server activity / LOW post content .. We just have a TON of watchers.
@  KyCutter : (19 January 2015 - 07:25 PM) I haven't been around for a while…..but it looks like I'm not the only one…whats up with BSG??
@  petter7 : (14 January 2015 - 01:40 AM) This one feels better than my freshman year when the Buckeyes slaughtered Michigan and then kicked OJ's butt in the Rose Bowl…and I was at both those games.
@  HossOnMoss : (13 January 2015 - 11:12 AM) @pingbear: I am not 100% sure on this so don't hold me to it, but I believe that they are made by Aldila. I could very well be wrong, but that's what I have been told.
@  HossOnMoss : (13 January 2015 - 11:10 AM) @petter7: Hard to imagine that Ohio State didn't even belong in the playoffs according to many, huh? Nothing against any other teams since I had not dog in this fight, but I wasn't disappointed to see OSU win it.
@  petter7 : (13 January 2015 - 12:27 AM) Buckeyes rule! Undisputed National Champions!
@  pingbear : (12 January 2015 - 11:41 PM) does anyone know who makes ping's tour 65&80 shafts
@  SOU812 : (12 January 2015 - 01:30 PM) I need a 3 wood that I can hit off the deck. Help!!!
@  J13 : (31 December 2014 - 09:59 PM) Rfdegen- thats horrible man lo
@  J13 : (31 December 2014 - 09:59 PM) Hoss- yes, career best 2 months ago with 67 (-5) and then monday another best 65 (-7). Playing the best golf of my life these last 3 months.
@  rfdegen : (31 December 2014 - 08:28 AM) J13 - We've got a minus score here this morning, too: minus 10* - below zero F!
@  HossOnMoss : (30 December 2014 - 06:13 PM) J, that makes it your career low AND lower this year right? 67 and now 65! Shaving the strokes off fast my man!
@  J13 : (30 December 2014 - 05:10 PM) Thanks Rfdegen, and ain't that the truth!!
@  rfdegen : (30 December 2014 - 10:42 AM) Congrats J13! That's going out of 2014 with a bang.
@  J13 : (29 December 2014 - 05:59 PM) Shot a career best -7 (65) today. Today is a GREAT day!!! Hoss built irons were money!
@  Brizam : (24 December 2014 - 12:09 PM) MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! Hope everyone gets all the gear they are hoping for.
@  rfdegen : (19 December 2014 - 09:45 AM) 15* here this morning. But our indoor range is open and we're able to swing a club again.
@  J13 : (18 December 2014 - 09:58 AM) I play a variety of shafts but the Rome 988 is the best hybrid shaft on the planet
@  Quantum : (16 December 2014 - 11:02 AM) Can you compare 904hb vs DI 95 vs veylix 988?

@  ROBOPTI : (25 November 2014 - 08:41 AM) Modus is the best steel shaft out there .. PERIOD :thumbsup:
@  biu997 : (24 November 2014 - 10:25 PM) nippon modus
@  HossOnMoss : (24 November 2014 - 01:37 PM) @TWshoot67: Hard to say what the outcome and results will be, but hiring Como is a good move. He is one of these guys that is really on the cutting edge of the science of the golf swing which will blend well with what Tiger was doing under Foley. Como without a doubt though will have to make some changes, but at least it's not a total "start over" process and he knows what he's doing. Looks like Tiger is going to take more control over what he does with his game rather than following a teacher's instruction to the letter.
@  HossOnMoss : (24 November 2014 - 01:35 PM) @BingHogan: That would be a good test. Without a real formal apples to apples test, my impressions are that KBS Tour V actually shares a mix of characteristics from Modus 120 and 130.
@  TWshoot67 : (23 November 2014 - 01:11 PM) So what's everyones take on Tiger's new swing coach, Chris Como. Thoughts?
@  BingHogan : (21 November 2014 - 01:47 PM) Hey Hoss, any thoughts on doing a comparison of the Nippon 120's vs the KBS Tour V Tour?
@  HossOnMoss : (20 November 2014 - 10:48 AM) What do you guys think about Golf Digest's / Dan Jenkins' recent "interview" with Tiger? http://bombsquadgolf...iew-with-tiger/

@  HossOnMoss : (11 November 2014 - 07:43 PM) And by the way guys, the new Big Bertha Alpha 815 and DBD heads exceeded my expectations today in my initial testing. Really good stuff from Rutherford Road in these new heads! :smilie_cally:

@  HossOnMoss : (20 October 2014 - 01:46 PM) @Quantum: Rome 988 is actually a little smoother feeling and higher launch than DI-95 hybrid without feeling "loose" or being spinny. Rome 888 is going to launch lower and spin less than Speeder 757.

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.
