Having resurfaced after a long hiatus, as I was walking the course today memories of the early days of JCH sprang to mind and one of my favorite posts to have written way back then.  Came here to look for it and it would seem to have been archived away.  Any chance those might still exist somewhere?  The topic was a review of the Pitch mark tool that was given away with the Diamana X shaft.  If memory serves there was some interesting discussion about proper balance and weight for repairing pitch marks as a result...

What is your favorite post/review of old?

Managed a few more holes with this club today and am slowly getting a feel for it.  Nutted a couple and had a solid arcing trajectory.  Need to measure the club length as I might tip the shaft some and the trim to length from there.  I lose where the head is in the swing sometimes and over compensate.

Feel on nutted shot is forged iron like as is the sound.  Toe side is louder and a little more hollow sounding with feel to match.  Not bad toe side, but not as good as nutted either.

Shots can be shaped draw or fade. I couldn't control either today, but the ball turned in the direction I was intending just not how much.

Looking forward to dialing this baby in.

So what did I learn today...

Sun hurts eyes when looked directly at even with sunglasses...

Also, the Modus shaft and I are not a match made in heaven...  I would say I am not a fan.  Having said that I did manage to figure out how to play with it installed on the iron heads enough to get a feel for what the 247Ds could be. Many shots were thin l, but found the sweet spot on some to get that nice dense thud with good ball flight.

I predict these heads will be keepers once I turn those Modus shafts into vine growers and put something else in their place. Am contemplating the Attas 10s now as a quick test before the OTIs arrive.

Shac, just get taper shafts especially if steel.  if the irons turn out to be parallel, simple shimming will do.

You sure the anti glare finish isn't just the plastic wrap?

But seriously...

You commented insertion depth is deeper with Itobori irons than other heads?  Shouldn't that serve to stiffen the shaft some, almost like tipping it?

So based on hand feel and insertion depth, possibly a flex looser than standard insertion Roddio?

Lol... I'm sure about the anti glare.

Yeah, depth seems like 0.25 inch deeper so it shouldn't stiffen the shaft that much. I just hand flexed my roddio i8 GS7I and the MXH roddio i8 7I and they feel about the same.

Did the same with the GS6I roddio i8 and the MXH DS8 and the DS8 flexes more.  I'd hazard half flex or slightly less. We'' see how the range session goes, I may need to hardstep 1X.

That said, if the DS8 is like the driver and FW shafts, they feel softER in the waggle but do not play soft?
