windy as sin. wet fairways ,almost no roll , cross wind, head wind back wind u name it it was blowing like marilyn chambers on her first audition. could hardly stand up on a few.
yamaha 9*---GD BB 6x.
longest driver of the weekend ,VERY surprised by this VERY.
dispersion was the worst , i guess due to 9* face but centered shots with this were fantastic. slices and hooks were more pronounced than with the "others" but the good ones were unquestionably the best.
yamaha 10* ---Gd BB 7x
got good length, good dispersion, with good feel , nice and lively, not as theatrical as the 6X
did its job with aplomb, not awsome nor terrible just mr dependable of the range.
good shots were nicely rewarded, bad ones were punished.
flight was a little on the higher side . but i could get this to go left a bit .
very very good shaft have NO probe recomending this shaft to anyone i nthe 107-115 SS range, id think.
def NOW my fav of all the GD shafts ive hit to this point ( thats lot fyg).
yamaha 10*---crazy cb 50 8.2
my gamer, made this end of last yr , nothing i can think of has been close to benching it. nothing even close.
high soaring flight, tight as a knats chuff at impact. u aim somwhere the ball is going dead straight in that direction. a long way. easily he most taught feeling in my hands, no dispersion of energy all the energy feelsl ike tis going into the ball not thru the shaft and into yr nads. its truely the best lively feeling shaft along with the roddio shingo spec 2010 that ive ever hit. but this is tighter and stiffer..
yamaha 10* diamana X 60x
was massively biased to hitting this more than the other shafts , simply bec ive played the others a cpl of times, this is the new toy.
it DOES NOT GO LEFT its the derek zoolander of shafts. no not incredibly inceribly good looking.. its the non ambi turner.
dead set i went a clobbering this bec iwasnt scoring and when you are . settign up on the right side of the box hitting into a left right cyclone aiming dead smack at ob trees on the elft..., it takes some getting ur head into.
matterd NOT 1 iota the ball went dead straight or with a tiny fade back to the right every single shot.
so much so i gamed it exclusively yesterday for nine.
the 60 weight is PERFECT as is the X flex. even at 10* loft the ball flight was still low. very low on occasions.
and i was concernd that all the 10* heads i have would be ballooning all over the shop. not at all delighted with 10* heads.
easily the lowest of the flights and easily the most piercing . seemed to just penetrate the wind regardless of how much i turned the right hand thru the ball.
def diamana feel but with a nice "ping to it" wont say its my best feeling nor is it at the top of that tree actually.
but yes performace wise its super. and yesterday in the wost wind ive ever seen i hit 5 of 5 o nthe shorties. cannot ask for more than that. and i was getting it out there a fair distance as well.
16th par 5 580ayrds dead flat 200 yard ravine carry onto 40 yrds width of pathway. its chkchk kabooooooom , and with a typhoon at my back it was heaven!
4 drives with each driver
4- BB 7x
movement in air.
diaman lowest by a margin
then i really couldnt spilt the rest to be honest . they all seemed pretty nude.
winner winner chicken dinner...............................,
accuracy the stinger
distance prob the BB6x
feel the cb50 easily
if ihad to play just one of these to for the rest of the yr.........................
the overall everythingness of this is just perfcet for me.
pls ask questions .
oh heres a cpl of ponderings i gotta make each week.
