  • Didn’t drive the ball very well today, but managed to keep it in play. Made a bit of a grip change mid round and started seeing the nice flight I’m looking for and started finding fairways again.

    Still love the F9 with my Smoke, but looking forward to getting the LAGP shafts in hand to give them a whirl.

                  • Been struggling a lot with my F9/Helium combo. Seems that if I try and swing hard I'm all over the place, but if I just take a real relaxed and slow swing I'm consistently finding the fairway. I know you don't always want to swing out of your shoes - but sometimes you're looking for that extra oomph to cut the corner.

                    I sometimes wonder if the Helium shaft is too light for me to consistently control - but I love the head so much that I dont' want to give up on it. Might have to try the ACCRA TZ6 and see what happens.

                      I replaced my Helium shaft, reg flex. The tip felt very whippy to me, and I am a moderate swing speed guy, 90 or so.

                        Yeah...I have the ACCRA in my Mizuno ST190 and it just feels more stable. I love the lightweight feel of the Helium shaft, but I just can't seem to get it in a place that feels right.

                          With the combo I have, I picked up 20+ yards on average over my XR16. Very happy with this driver and shaft combo.

                          I didn't notice the whippiness of the Helium until I gamed the driver, then once I did, I could not not notice it. Seems like the last 6" or so where just too soft. The funny thing is, the overall flex on the Helium and my Fujikura are exactly the same, as per my fitter, but the whippiness is gone.

                          • This is interesting for me as I really enjoyed the tour length setup with the helium shaft at the beginning of the season. I've been worrking with a coach on my driving and noticed my ball flight was getting too high with the helium and when I went at it aggressively I want timing it perfectly. Adding had weight, decreasing the loft, and going to a heavier shaft has gotten it under control. I feel like I can go at the ball hard and still get good results.

                              I don't play on the weekends at my course. Let the working men & women have the course on Saturday & Sunday, and us retired folks have it during the week.
                              Well, that experiment didn't work at all. With the Bassara Lite shaft in it I wore the right side of the course out. The shaft didn't feel Lite at all during the swing. I put the stock UST Mamiya Helium F3 59gm regular shaft back in it and will play it tomorrow. Also changed the setting to 9.5D as opposed to the std D setting I was using on the 10.5* head.
