Great looking club Ian. I sold my ZY-11 without even trying it a long time ago and regret it after hearing the subsequent feedback from many FMs. Do enjoy the club!

So, a very quick range session today, and I took my FTi-Z and X-Drive 905 (both 9.5). A couple of things were made apparent from the first swing; this thing launches LOOOOOW, and it needs to be middled as it's not very forgiving (night and day compared to the FTi-Z). After I'd realised that the rubber tee's were too low, I tee'd it up using my own longer wooden tees and BOOOOOM. This combo seems to be very straight with a very flat and penetrating trajectory. The Cally was defo more forgiving and the TS was a just a touch softer in feel. If anyone needs more control and/or lower launch and possibly spin then you can't go wrong with either if these components.
Can't wait to try it on a clear day.  By the way, it looks absolutely awesome. ;D


I never had issues launching it. Never thought this head was low launch at all. Might be that I always tee'd it up high anyway. Didn't think it was very demanding as well. Found it to be rather forgiving as well. But it really could be that people who struggled launching this head, just didn't tee it high enough. The face is so freaking deep on this thing that tee height definitely needs some attention.

Played 9 holes this afternoon. Hit 4 out of 5 fairways with this beast. The sound and feel are like hitting a nail with a hammer, a nice muted thwack.
Tried teeing it high and low and both worked. More testing needed. I saw a vlog posted on YouTube by meandmygolf, at the TM launch with DJ. Saw him set up for a fade so I tried it on a 402yd par 4. Not a bad result
