@  BingHogan : (12 September 2014 - 11:22 AM) First ball out of the box-- Back of the net! Second, straight little draw. As Kenny Perry once said: " I Kain't miss it!" Really haven't hit a driver like that in years!
@  J13 : (12 September 2014 - 09:45 AM) Bio Cell is a hidden gem. Heard Cobra is bringing the HEAT next year.

@  rfdegen : (10 September 2014 - 07:31 AM) We're still playing golf here - in between thunderstorms. Record rains in WI. Sucks!
@  TJR : (09 September 2014 - 09:30 PM) I need to play. Been going to the range, but my swing sucks right now. Playing crooked stick in 2 weeks if the weather is decent.
@  MN NICE : (09 September 2014 - 07:27 PM) NFL is BACK!
@  BingHogan : (09 September 2014 - 03:29 PM) Anybody still playing golf out there!? Man, it's dead.
@  youngwaldo : (09 September 2014 - 10:52 AM) Got mine yesterday. Going to test them tomorrow.
@  rfdegen : (09 September 2014 - 08:58 AM) Got my sleeve of test balls and will be testing them tonight, if it doesn't rain again! Crap! We're flooding around here these days. Enough already!
@  burniemac : (09 September 2014 - 07:42 AM) Just got a sleeve of the Titleist test balls in the mail yesterday
@  BingHogan : (08 September 2014 - 06:16 PM) Sleeves that have been handed out. Looks like more spin probably due to lower spinning drivers coming out.
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:56 PM) Are we talking the New Titleist sleeves that have been sent out?
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:55 PM) @BingHogan is this ball from a New Company or just a new Proto for next years possible selections?
@  BingHogan : (07 September 2014 - 10:10 PM) Testing a new ball prototype tomorrow. Sworn to not to loose it. Just hit it and see...
@  BingHogan : (07 September 2014 - 09:58 PM) Maura Passing Point with KBS V -- Sweet! Hit 200 and couldn't put em down. Great turf interaction and feel.
@  TJR : (06 September 2014 - 09:27 PM) I was talking to someone today and mentioned that this is probably the first time I've been completely satisfied with the clubs in my bag
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 07:43 PM) Decided to go through ALL my bags and start over from driver to wedges.
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 07:42 PM) PP - large cavity. Doesn't have the new CB yet. Also the new blade. Really expensive, though. Might have to break out the new MP 69's.
@  TJR : (06 September 2014 - 02:30 PM) Should feel buttery soft. Blade or CB?
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 09:53 AM) Hitting a Miura with KBS V later today to add to the confusion :rolleyes:

@  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

@  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

I just wanted to share my experience in my search for the absolute best driver for me. This has been a process for me for 8 months now. I have tried so many models that it is difficult to remember them all. I have also hit many of Japans best driver heads and shafts as well. It has been an expensive journey even though I have purchased used equipment most of the time. Here is the List:
Japan drivers - Crazy 460, Kamui 456, Yonex Ezone, Yonex 430 and the famous Ryoma V-spec. Japan shafts were Quadra Fire express, crazy CB46, Bangvoo Premium. This line of gear is stupid expensive so this was the costly part of my journey. I also took most of these to a launch monitor to check all info. the best of this list was the Crazy 460 with a Miyazaki Indigo shaft. Backspin was 3200 with a 12* launch angle. best drives were 285 and average about 269. For anyone who may doubt Japan equipment, it is the best feeling gear that I have tried. I was set to go back to the Crazy 460 until I tried the Taylormade RBZ tour.

USA Drivers - Any new model out I have hit on the launch monitor and out doors. I liked the Adams Fast LS and the Razr Fit. The G20 was also very solid but just did not give me the big bombs on pure hits. The R11 is a solid club for me but again it does not give me the distance I need. most shaft offerings were stock so I realize there may be a few jems in there with a quality shaft. I did not care for the RBZ with the stock shaft at all. I ourchased a Tour Spec Motore speeder on a whim and thought I would give it a go in the RBZ. Wow from the moment I hit it on the range I knew I was on to something. After gaming it for a couple of weeks I went to a launch monitor to check the numbers for the first time. I must say that I hit the Razr fit,Adams LS, I20 the same day to have a comparison of numbers. The Adams had the best numbers for me but the spin was still too high with a good Fubuki shaft in it. 3200 backspin but 11.8 launch. Distance was 261 total. When i hit my combo on the monitor it was unreal. Spin was 2450 with a 12* launch with 280 distance. The store rep looked at me and said "I can't help you, you have the club you need. The Mizuno rep was there and followed me to the front to see what shaft was in my driver. No one there knew what this shaft was. I explained that I purchased it on line and that Phil mickelson and hunter Mayhan had gamed this shaft recently. I am glad this journey is over. This club is not the best feeling by a long shot but it gives me the exact performance that I need. I agree with others that it is too loud but I can live with all of this for performance. I truly believe that I may get similar numbers with this shaft in another head but I believe that you have to stop and be happy at some point. I am there.

I am 102 to 108 max. 104 seems to be my average according to launch results. a good drive for me is 275 to 285. Like most I will hit a 290 to 300 sometimes but not very often. My misses are 250 to 260.

What flex and weight is your Fuji? I'm looking at the exact same combo and have pretty similar numbers. My swing speed is between 108 and 112.

No Titleist or Fubuki tests?

Texsport

Hey texsport. I finally got a Fubuki K in to test. However it is not apples to apples. I wanted to try a lighter shaft so I went with the 56 gram in stiff. First off the Fubuki is smoother, just feels better than the motore. However the lighter weight does not work for me. The launch is too high and as a result the motore is longer in both carry and roll. It was worth a try but I hope to sale this one and try a 67 gram version to see if it can hang with the motore with better feel. Shame as it is a nice looking shaft in this head.

Fuji VC 6.2 and 7.2 are supposed to be really really low spin. Didn't Phil play the 7.2 at Pebble Beach earlier this year? It was one of the best rounds that Phil played with driver funny he no longer plays this shaft though.

Yes he did. I think he gamed the Motore TS for 2 tourneys then went back to Fubuki and or Diamana. I now have this shaft in an Adams Tour issue head and it is pretty solid. I still want to try a ad BB or a heavier Fubuki K
