Another quick driver comparo on a GC2
« on: February 04, 2018, 08:44:17 PM »
Today's subjects:

Rogue / Evenflow
M4 / Fujikura Atmos Red
F8 / Aldila 2KXV Blue
917 D2 / Fujikura Pro

Modart MA01d+R / Seven Dreamers
Zodia Z921CC / Basi AAA 2015
Ping G20 / Tour AD TP-6

*****

I really wanted to try the G400 Max but they still don't have a demo.  It's less than a week away from release day!!  WTF?

It was good to find out that all three of my drivers can go head to head against any of the new drivers in terms of average distance.  except for the Rogue.
Rogue goes 5+yards more carry than any other combo listed here.
 
 - Modart / 7D kicks butt when it comes to dispersion.    It has the tightest dispersion by quite a bit compared to any driver I hit today.  Distance is decent.
 - Dispersion on Zodia / AAA combo not quite as tight as the Modart but makes it up with slightly more carry.   Just a tad shorter compared to Rogue.
 - Ping G20 / TP-6 is a good combo:  7 year old head can still hold its own especially combo'd with this great shaft!

Now for the new drivers.

- 917 D2 ->  felt good but that was it.  Didn't like the shape ... did not perform well either.
- F8 ->  was hoping for better things.... I liked the shallow shape,  felt really nice off the face.  Distance was.. so so ...  Dispersion was so so.
- M4 ->  I was all over the place with this one.   sweetspot just felt small with this one.   Perhaps the shaft was not a good match for me.  No Go.
- Rogue->  Pretty impressed with how long it is and how friendly it is.  The Project X Evenflow shaft is really good despite the funny name.  Recommend trying it.

Still want to try the G400 Max to see if I can get Rogue like distances with even more forgiveness. 
Then I might consider getting one.

Does not surprise me that the Rogue is longest. Jailbreak really works in my opinion.

Nob-san, do you have any actual numbers to share from the GC2 session? Besides distance of course any numbers that stood out that you remembered?

I think the main difference I saw was the ball speed.  Rogue was fastest by about 2-3 mph on average.  thus, the carry was about 5 yards more. 
Spin numbers and other launch conditions were pretty similar.
