Free needs a new cannon....
« on: August 04, 2019, 02:55:25 PM »
Just what it says...I need more distance....more carry...course has been soft lately and Iím paying the price for my low ball flight...

No idea other than what I want to get..,probably not right for my swing (roddio compact mid...11.5 with lunar 5plus...

Currently playing the 155 with a Xanadu stiff at 45...gr8 combo when the ground is hard...shaft maybe a bit lighter than Iím used to but still resilient for me...

Iím usually 97-102 range but have a slightly negative angle of attack..my average drive is 245-250 middle of the fairway...straight or a small block...

My course is 6850 from the blue tees.  When itís firm through the winter it plays short but weíve been getting tons of rain...I ripped a drive today and bot up to it 225...in its pitch mark...wtf...

Appreciate any suggestions...am already pursuing the obvious...(working on my driver swing)...want a bomber I can sorta keep up with...

😂...Iím thinking of going to a usdm fitting...itís been so long...I know I could be getting more out of the swing I have...

M6 is on the list...so is the call away and all the other crap...if I find something thatís significantly longer I may take it...be another unoriginal, fat, and unstylish member of our great idiocracy

Maybe Ryoma Maxima would fit the bill if it needs to be JDM?
M6 would be a good option I think. Maybe Ping G410? Callaway is good but sounds like crap.

I second the Ryoma. My combo is a very light version with a total weight of 275grams @ 45Ē playing length. Shaft is a Quadra Fire Express Max Plus 5, grip a Winn dri-tec lite. I gained a good amount of distance carry wise and total distance. My swing speed is around 100mph (more of a swinger than a hitter). I didnít gain swing speed from the lighter weight but the acceleration is better and easier.

My swing is changing...Iím more of a drawer now...used to be a fader and kinda miss it but the few extra errant drives are boosting my handicap and Iím better able to keep up w the big boys with a draw...the Xanadu is a good shaft at this point because I take it back real slow...may go up in mass though...Iím thinking roddio compact now...I like being 250 off the tee...every single time...rather than 270 sometimes with a coup,e penalty strokes...,,

I've got a Ryoma Premia sitting here...  Have always and still do think this is one of the best heads Ryoma has made.  It will launch with the right shaft. Has always outperformed every Epon head I've played.

Hang on.... puts on flame suit..........

For what you're specifically asking for.  TRPX - RAYTIS TOUALE which can be had in SX or X. When our conditions are like yours have been this is my go to shaft. Doesn't matter what head you put it in. HIGH launch, all carry.  Look for a used  one....  if the Premia is of interest to you shoot me a PM with your addy and I'll send it to you.

Finally got off my ass and got this built up ...not by me of course...free is way to lazy for that bit by a guy who knows what heís doing..,

One range session and a goof around 9 bit I really like it so far...hit a couple good ones..,surprised that it goes a little low...I have been playing an 11^ 155 but itís 10.5 and the premia model...quite a few 210 carry 250 total distance shots that ide guess had 9-10 degrees of launch at most...to early to tell much other than this is a real good combo...nice looking driver, I thought the gold would look hokey or pimp but itís just real good quality...really nice looking club in hand...I may swap shafts with the 155 so loop cl photo goes in the 155 and Xanadu goes in the ryoma...

...and yes they call me artís biggest little brother in the world when I visit Reno...
