been so chilly this side of the pond,   hardly even looked at my stash , had a few range sessions over Chrissy with PLENTY of new amo , but  more to just make sure the bod works, as ive no interest in playing  anytime soon.
 had one game a cpl of weeks back   waste of time and coin was so cold had ot wear gloves most of the round and balls were going about 40 yards shorter,

waiting till  april/may for a potential  mainland jaunt.
depends upon the fam as totally hamstrung by their holidays but   BANDON is  high on my bucket list.
been eyeing that off for yonks.
  intense dialogue with wifeoooo a fallout of golfing  habit.

southern Utah another destination  on  consideration list.

Board has been dead...reviving a good thread.  Golf goes on in Florida...it's cold here.  Bundling up for tomorrow...

Golf trip is set for me this year.  Mid-March.  Itinerary looks really good:
Thursday night arrive Bay hill Friday 2 loops drive to Orange County national.  Stay at the asylum Saturday 2 rounds at ocn, drive 2 stream song Sunday play blue course, dinner massage, get up play red course and then home on Monday...

Anyone have a good golf trip planned this year?

Nobsy, u want me to just ship you the kuros with the bold 50/56 in the pic there?  Just ship them back when I get something of yours or buy them cheap if u want...lmk, otherwise I'll send them to chip for pulling...

Iíve had the GTD for about 2 months now but only 2 rounds with it.

I played it first with a Crazy 9 Dia R flex at 46 and D2.5 or D3 swing weight.  While it was long, dispersion was not too good.  A fellow member saw a post where a Regular flex dia CPMs to 252 at 45.5.  We donít know if its grip on and what head weight and depth of clamp but itís a good approximation.  It tended tor be a tad wild.  Wasnít sure if it was too soft or too long (I play 455 at most) or both.

I waited for my 43gram Cadero grip to come in and head the combo refitted.  I tipped it half in, playing to 45 and D1.5 SW with a head weight of 198 grams.  I put in a lead tip as well to help stiffen up the tip and play it at neutral ie 10* loft.

Took it out for a round and did not miss a single for the 12 holes I used it as its as long as anything I have.   What else can you ask for.. long and in the fairway!

Looks wise, it hides the size very well.  Itís a mid deep face I would say with the face height being about 56mm iirc .

Feel wise itís not a hard face like the Kamuis but not mushy soft as well.  The part I would improve is the sound.  For me, itís a high pitch ting and JPS loud.  Just me of course as Steven as the same head and with the same shaft but in SR flex and he likes the sound.  Maybe a Freudian insight into the kind of women Steven and I prefer but weíd take any truth be told.. we digress.. itís the polar opposite of the foamed Abroad DF-570 if youíve hit that.

Launch for me, this is a mid launch head.  That said, the Dia is a mid launching shaft. Spin wise, I would say mid low.  I get more run than my carry head the GPOM but not as much as my Itobori.

So.. great combo.  I can see what all the hype on distance is with this head on the Japanese blogs.  I think I have the right shaft tuned correctly for this head to me so its for sure a keeper.

As I mentioned earlier, Steve has this head as well so hopefully he will chime in.  If you run a search, I think he did a short review with another shaft.

On the Crime of Angel Burning Angel shaftÖ I have not hit that model but play 3 other models (the original, California Angel and FW90) and I love these shafts.  They work for me and are obscure so that no one Iíve played yet has one.  The Burning Angel is designed to launch higher so Iím not sure if you need that.  The VI flex is for a 45m/s swing speed if I can recall.  I play V flex for 42 m/s swing speed and the COA shafts are to me very accurate from that point of view.  The 3 that I play are very long and very tight.  Not silky smooth like the Bangvoo MAVC 80 but not rubbery or plasticky as well.  Iím not sure how much the combo is but I would say anything from 75k to 80K yen is a very fair deal.  If the Burning Agel was a V flex, Iíd offer you a sure buy offer if it did not work for you but itís a VI flex.  It also comes with the Cadero grip which is my fav grip for driver and UTs now.

Hope this helps some.   I would advocate buying it.


Art, your review is way better than mine, cant agree more, the only thing is I dont find it too loud, I m sure we treat women differently :P ...... I always go easy .......... wahahahahah ............ I first had the roddio amorphous smooth 57, it launched higher for sure then crazy dia SR both played to 46. I would say the crazy had more control, straighter and much more roll, had the GTD for almost 6 month I think, definanly a keeper, if anyone can compare to the GTD code K will be great, thanks

Took the 241 Co framewalker out today.  Good thing the sky didn't open up.

I'm not sure it's the bets walking bag as the strap ia not the most comfortable. That said, it's cool enough.  The bag handler was sufficiently impressed and he's seen a heck of a lot bags.

The stitch leather covers are also really cool.  Will likely get some more to match my other bags.
