wmclarenf1, ever tried anything from Baldo? in particular competizione 568.

Only the 911 D.  Very good feel and sound.  Deepish face iirc.

Everything I've tried from baldo has been good.  It's not always the perfect fit but has always been good.  The Proceed is a really good head, surprised at how long it is.  I put your boo in it art even though I knew the shaft was gonna bet to soft and it's been a fun club.  Taking very easy light swings with real loose wrists and the ball is out there where it is when I let her rip and catch it square...making center contact makes the proceed sing...

Hi H,   the dat 55 on the proceed can be really hot.   I imagine the launch profile of the head to also be rather suited to your swing type from what I gather.   Try a right flex shaft on this head which allows you to go after it if you want.

So I have the Mavc in my modart DS now and safe to say, there's  no need for any change to the combo.  The Mavc is rightly suited to me flex wise, it's as long as anything go have now and dispersion is, well... Mavc excellent.

The DS is a lower launching and spinning head to the D and perhaps, that's why the Mavc is well suited to it.

 No one else has match made combos?

Would love to try the MAVC one day...  they don't come up as used too much.
I've tried the MA01DS but I did not find it forgiving enough for me.   Did love the feel and sound of it better than the original D
I think they changed material on the face. 

Though it took a few tries, I think my current Grandista LS/7D combo is as stable and forgiving as I can ask for a driver.

I thought the JBeam ZY-11 with the Fuji Speeder EvoII was as good as it gets FOR ME. This is maybe the one I regret breaking up and selling.

If we're talking about past regrets..

I'd say it would be the AF-153 / AAA '15 Combo  I was so confident hitting this combo...
but I sold the pair when I decided to do the 7D thing.  Stupid me!

I regret selling these:
Yamaha v201 Tour with Diamana X60 - probably the best feeling driver combo ever for me.
jBEAM 535 with Bangvoo 787 - nearly as good feeling as the Yamaha but with more stability.

Is the Proceed in the penalty box?

PROCEED is in florida with H.

Love that head, looks so good over the ball and as long as any...prob need to change the shaft out as I put the bootoobee se in it and it's a bit whippy but for some reason I don't hit over the top pulls w it...

153 with any shaft I put n it was about the best combo I've had...I should get another one...

I was about too give up on the Itobori because its not the most forgiving. only thing that held me back was knowing that sweet spot (small in the case of Ito) strikes are very well rewarded.  I had the Crazy 9 Dia in it and perhaps that was not the best combo for a lowish launching and spinning head.

I've since put a Xanadu (which also works so well in the Abroad DF570) into the Ito and now I'm sure I won;t move it on now.  Had a great round with it a few weeks back and I was just hitting huge (my standards) drive after huge drive.  Clearly the higher launching low mid kick Xanadu is a better fit for the Itobori.

Just a very belated update given my laziness to post any reviews these days...

In the meantime, I'm toying around now with another Crazy 9 Dia but this time a regular flex (which apparently plays to 252 CPM at 45.5..confirms my view that the 90T Crazy 9 plays stiff to flex) and in a GTD455... needs some tweaking but BOOM!  The balance of my 2 cents once the tweaking is done.
