I was hitting the TaylorMade Burner Superfast 2.0 (9.5 Stiff) at Golf Town last week and their out of date simulator was telling me a ball speed of 170 or so which their conversion chart told me that is a swing speed around 110.
The launch angle was averaging around 10 or 11 degrees on these shots, then it was suggesting a few 300 to 305 yd shots!
I wonder about the accuracy of that number because the higher it is, the more excited you get about a product haha... I have a Bridgestone J33R 8.5 X-Stiff that I do not hit 300 yards, usually around 260.
I have never been fitted for a driver so maybe I can in fact hit it 300 with a more suitable club, but I'm going to hit it again at another GT location that has a range as well to see the real deal.
Long story short, I'm watching the TaylorMade promo video on their website that has their pros hitting the new Burner and talking about it. The TM guy is reading off launch angles of 20 degrees or so and 2100 rpm spin if I remember correctly.
If that simulator is telling me 10 degrees launch gives me 300 yards, why is TM saying 20 degrees is a good thing in this commercial, I do hear the high launch low spin thing about drivers, so I'm guessing the simulator is just way off haha...
Any feedback would be great, thanks for reading the stretched out version here :)
