On my off days these mallets help me align better.  Used the Odyssey 7 shape for a long time.   I wish they’d make a more premium solid milled in that shape.   For now this maybe the closest short of having to do a full custom shape thru Benock!!

Check out the Toulon Portland

I’ve been tempted to try a Toulon, supposed to really have a uniquely good feel and sound to them. Just can’t decide which to try. Some of the older releases are on Callaway preowned in like new condition for pretty good prices but I’m kinda partial to the Atlanta and Portland which are new

Thanks Matt. 

They look pretty good.   The Odyssey EXO series coming out in May is another that I really want to try.

Ok I just hit the bullet on the course about 10-15 times.  This thing is legit.  More testing to come but I think this ones going to stick around for a while. Just going to get rid of the yellow paintfill.

Full review when you can pls.

Oh yes, please tell us more. Very intrigued.

I will be sure to give an in depth review when the weather gets better in the NE.. This is how it should have come from the factory...

Looks much better. I personally would have also turned the red lettering into white to match the Jbeam logo.

My “don’t buy any more drivers” plan was short lived. Got 5 additional shaft adapters too.

I've been hitting a lot of fairways with my G20/TP6 combo but distance is so so.... likely due to higher spin. 
I can visually see at the tail end,  the ball falls rather vertically.  Not a drop from too low of a spin but a softer landing similar to a hybrid.
While I wait on the new Grandista to come out,   I wanted to try something low spinning but forgiving.
Thought about trying a G400 LST but settled for a King LTD Black really to see how much more on course distance I can get from my 50yr old swing of mine. :)   I hope it works out.   Another head that I was considering was the A Grind Type D 460 ... supposedly a fairly low spin head based on CG dimensions.

Seriously, get a GBB from 2015/16 and put a 12g weight in it. Cut it down to whatever feels comfortable and off you go... The weight it so close to the face it's a cheap sub zero....

I have an LTD Pro you could’ve had for cheap! Also have an XR16 SZ if you’re interested in doing a head to head compo. My SS is too low for either head...

G400 LST would have been a very good head. On the others I cannot comment as I did not hit either. Only thing I have heard is that the XR16 SZ is supposed to be super unforgiving.
