I’ve now played 36 holes and I haven’t pulled the M5 out once. Absolutely loving this thing. Every group I play with asks about it and wants to look at it.

Threw the HZRDUS smoke green 70 6.0 in this and love it even more.  Can go after it now without fear of a big hook as the stock shaft was pretty whippy. Played 18 yesterday and the driver swing wasn’t working so I put it away for the rest of the round and played this.

Found fairways the rest of the round and doesn’t really seem to be giving up distance to my driver because the launch conditions are so nice. I bet my average drive with this is longer than my average with driver, but I’m sure good shots with driver are a bit longer. I had chances to hit all the par 5s in 2.

Kinda makes me wonder if I even need to keep a regular driver around.

Matt.
Did you tip the aftermarket shaft in the mini Driver?
I’m trying to find one in the UK but there’s no Stiff flex left... no biggie as I’d possibly install the TZ5

I did NOT have it tipped because I wanted at least a chance of hitting it off the deck.

FWIW I like the Smoke Green way better than the TZ5. I also tried TZ6 which I liked better than the TZ5. I was just sure the Accra’s were going to work for me and I really wanted them to because 1) I spent the money on them and 2) They’re wonderful looking shafts but the Smoke Green was just more consistent for me and my short compact swing. I thought the TZ5 felt a little numb and boardy. The TZ6 had a little more feel and launch.

I have overcome my disdain and skepticism of the Px line of graphite shafts. They just consistently work for me across all my woods. There’s a reason they’ve become so popular. They use premium fibers and have a huge range of bend profiles to suit all golfers. I now have the Smoke Green in Driver and OO and Evenflow White T1100 in my 5 wood. They all take the left side out for me, are consistent, and feel great at impact.

Lol I just sold the stock stiff shaft from the OO on eBay today Dale. I bought the one I have used off eBay and Will People’s did the shaft for me. It is 45.75” stock but I wanted it 43.5 so Will used OO heads he had on hand to do the SW to my spec. Cannot recommend him highly enough although I get that the shipping is a bitch.

The feel of a good strike with the OO just makes you want to grab your tee and walk off the tee box like a pimp daddy. And it’s shockingly forgiving for its size. Toed shots seem to draw back just left of center rather than in the rough or hazard and go just as far as centered strikes.

I honestly believe the twist face does work. I tend to miss on the toe and get a big push draw/hook that can get me in big trouble. My worst shot with it Saturday was a hard hit block that still left me a shot to the green. M This head keeps me in the fairway. I’m sure the extra loft on this club helps as well with that versus a normal driver.

I had to fiddle with the tee height a bit to find the right height but seem to have dialed that in now at about an inch or so high.

I was teeing it low almost like a 3W and found myself topping it sometimes so I kinda went halfway between 3W and driver and seems to be the sweet spot for me
