I actually got this driver and shafted it up with a 7 dreamers.  The driver does not feel or sound like the Type-S or Compact drivers, it feels harder and has a higher pitched sound.  Overall the driver is good but it's not extra long like their fairway woods.  I have about 20 drivers in my house and I still game the PRGR RS-F 2016 Prototype when I play tournaments.  If I wanted pure distance two drivers that I would say to check out are the Taylormade Gloire M or the Astro Tour, both are super long and forgiving.

The astro tour is a really under rated head.  Which model are you referring to?

I have the Astro Tour VIII in 9 degree shafted with a 2016 Basileus AAA 60X.  Itís a little harder when struck but you canít deny the distance you get with the head.  It also launches really high for the loft.

I had that too.  Great feeling head.  SP700 as well IIRC.
