And you will LOVE it!

You and Nob are not good influences...


While it is somewhat of a draw happy driver especially for natural draw hitters, once you learn how to tame it ( which is really not hard to do ) ,  it will give you a very strong piercing trajectory.

I was getting bored and the Modart MA01D+R was really shooting high so I decided to pull the AAA '15 out of the Grandista and try.
The Grandista got the Diamond Speeder from the Crazy 435 Limited to help with a bit more launch.

Something interesting happened with this shaft swap.  The Grandista that was draw happy and a bit low flying with the AAA is now straight to baby fade with the Diamond Speeder with slightly added launch.    The Modart with the AAA is a now shooting a bit lower compared to when it had the 7D shaft as anticipated so that was good ....  Perfect!!   Perhaps this new combo was how I was supposed to do it in the first place!

Hmm, based on your info from this shaft switch,  I'm thinking if I should try the Xanadu in the RS-d before the COA California as the COA is a lower launching shaft.  It would look better with the RS-d though  :)

Well I went with a 9 deg head this time based on my experience with the LS-001 and RS-001 in which I had 9.5 deg both times.
I felt they were a tiny bit high for my liking so I went down 0.5 deg.   Well it turns out this all Ti head does not launch as high as the previous models.   I guess that is expected since the previous models probably had lower CG by using carbon crown.    I think Xanadu will be awesome with the RS-D.

I went with 10, same as my RS-001. Really looking forward to getting it. I'd be using the rsd as default for my Grind Studio bag.

Have you tried changing the weights on the RS-d? Same gauge as jbeam or more like proceed weight shape or totally different?

I think the Xanadu will be a great shaft for the Grandista; I say that because my Xanadu is on a TRPX head which is not that great tho I think the shaft is excellent. If I wasn't loving the grandista on the crazy shaft; that would the combo I would go with!

No the Grandista weights are specific to Grandista.    Though I have not tried,  I believe the RS-001 , RS-F use the same screws as RS-D
but on the RS-D they colored them blue instead of the brass color they used to use.

My head came with an 8g and a 2g with the 8g on the heel side and 2g on the rear end.   I did switch it around in an effort to get a bit more launch.
But now with the Diamond Speeder ad launch is not a concern,  I might move them back to the default to see if I can lower the spin a bit.

Ok.  I've requested for a 198 gram head so I should be good.

Very nice!!   Have you hit it yet?   

Over the weekend I used RS-D one day and MA01D+R  the next day.   
I have both of these drivers tuned for my liking now,  I can play either one with the same level of confidence.
With the firm fairway conditions we have on our course now,   I had to back off to using 3W on some dog leg holes. 
The roll distance I get with the RS-D is just ridiculous!!

Played this for 10 driving holes today.  Courtesy of K. Not a bad ball at all given the price.

Playing another round sat with the RS-d.  Will post my thoughts then.  Need to move the light weight screw to the back.
