Rob,

I;ve played all 3.

The original D1 Spec was indeed too low spin for me. I then moved to the regular model in 10.5 paired with a Crazy TJ46 Noir.  For me then, it was a game changer coming from the Epon AF101 which I gamed for a long while.  The D1 TJ46 combo was a very predictable, reliable, confidence giver fairway finder.  Long in its day.  Not long now.

The next Maxima was indeed high launching even in 9.5.  Cant remember which shaft of the plethora of shafts I tried in this head but yes, high launching.

The current Maxima I find lower launching loft for loft and better feeling. Traditional shape wise as far as Ryoma goes but at the end of the day.. meh.

I'm hoping Ryoma will release another game changer like what the original D1 was to the Epon AF101 for me..

Is it a thick topline?

Far from  it.  Not knife thin like the Mr23 us blade as well.

I wish I had your dilemmas. If I take the wife somewhere, there is one thing you can be sure of. Golf will not ever be a part of it.  :-\

Thanks for all the info.  I found the First D1 really low launching but when equipped with a mid spin shaft and 1 deg higher loft, it was pretty good.....As good as anything else during its time.  The Maxima was high launching and I couldn't get it to stay down but the surprisingly good Beyond Power shaft changed all that...I have a 10.5 deg and I can keep the ball from ballooning.  In the Rogue SubZero, I used a 9 deg and in the Ping G400LST I used a 8.5.....I think a 9.5 Maxima would be perfect and I have one coming in shortly.....I am curious about the latest maxima but that seems to be a rather average head from what I have heard.

Wait, let me get this straight... you felt guilty about playing too much golf lately... so you took your wife to a golf resort??

Those are some kinda coconuts for pulling that off!

My good buddy had some kinda championship come up for one of his sons and rather than sub I decided to do something I feel ashamed of...skip the member guest and take my wife to Jekyll Island for the weekend.  Her parents are taking our boys for the weekend and ive been playing 3 rounds a week for the past month which is a lot for a man with a full time job, 2 young kids and a wife and dog and am tired of the angry side of mrs free...

Really great golf destination if you're interested.  Pace of play was great, the courses (63 total holes) are true links some of them anyway...right on the ocean.  Food is fantastic and not too pricey...not the member guest but am enjoying myself...

Have the D-1 Premia. Couldn’t hit it straight. Gave up on it.

I had the original non v spec.  It was a really good driver for me at the time.  Mid launch plenty long just wanted to go straight.

Tried the v Spec and like nob-san I found it way too low launching.

Gave up when the maxima came out.  Going to test the Ping G400 LST, has similar back weighting system.
