      • Went epic flash 9* and should get some time on a monitor later this week if my back heals up and actually lets me move with a solid motion.

          0 worries. Didn’t think your comment was out of line in any way; thought your post was well thought out and written. I just wanted to add that the GD guys have provided some honest criticism too amongst the feedback. That was really all I was trying to say.

          Happy PGA show week dude

            • I still need to go and hit this, but based on the feedback and comments from some people in here, I definitely have an idea of what could work for me

              After the swing changes over the last couple of years, I have gone from hitting down on the ball to now hitting up at anywhere from 4-6 degrees depending on how I am swinging (at one point I was hitting up by 8 degrees), but my current driver setup just doesn't work with that swing and I am spinning the ball way too much

              Based on this thread and talking with my instructor, the 9* Sub Zero head is pretty much the one I would expect to be fit in to, and most likely the Smoke shaft

              Then the only thing left to configure would be whether to leave the head at 9* or if it needs turning down to 8*

              My next lesson is not for another 4 weeks, but I may well try and find some time to head over one evening to spend an hour on the sim and give this (along with the F9 and TS2/3) a try

                Nah dude everyone on the team appreciates the back n forth and we knew going into this that some would question if the feedback is genuine or just being caught up in the moment. Thats why everyone has made it a point to stick to facts and leave posts with emotion out of it. I think if there is one thing from the new release that has gotten balanced feedback its the driver. Myself, tequila4kapp, ArmyGolf and others have mentioned periods of struggle or even just adjusting to what is different about this release.

                Personally the sound stuck out as something that is "different" than in years past but thats exactly the thing, the face is completely different. During my time with the SZ I have struggled going back to trusting a fade but then again a lot of that can be crap swing aided.

                Do I agree with some of the dislikes with this release? Sure? Many of those who are dead set against this driver for the sound have historically been ones to speak out about sound so I dont think thats something specific to the Flash. The color thing is tricky for me because its basically the same epic color scheme that so many loved with a touch of masters to it which just as many love. But I get it.

                I guess thats the beauty in this all is not everyone has to agree. But for as much as someone who is not a fan of this driver is just "having an opinion", so is someone who enjoys this release

                  Was fit on a Trackman. This is taking into account all swings with the setup I went with--the good, the bad, and the ugly. Ball speed average was 167.5. Carry was 285.4. Spin was 2855. Launch angle 12.5. Average height was 123. Smash factor was 1.48.

                    Sounds like those numbers are pretty solid for you. Good grief you carry it far with a lower’ish launch angle

                          • Well, it sure can produce som fast ballspeed... Played around with some of the new ones after my second indoor range session of the season. Below is the best strike I put on the Flash SZ with the Smoke 6.0.

                            Might've been a misread on CHS, but still. Distance in meters.
