Ok I just did a thing haha. I apparently won an auction for an extreme last night. Didn’t think my high bid of 280 was going to hold ??‍♂. 12* with a regular helium but I’ll just swap it out with a stiff I have in the garage. Damn taxes on eBay kill the deal though.

The sale of the shaft if you don't have any need for it should soften the Tax Burden :drinks:

I am kind of leaning towards tour length this year.

Sounds awesome.

I'm curious as to why. I struggle finding the center of my driver so it made since and has helped me but you seen to hit the driver well. What are you looking for? Is it to gain more accuracy?

From what I've seen he doesn't need any help there either :rolleyes:

That's a bit of it, yeah. Love the extra head weight.

As much as I was a driver guy a year or two ago, I'm falling out of love with it lately. Long shafts, light heads. I almost feel like it gets me too loose out there. I want something with big control, and something I can stay in my swing with.

Could be a fun story to tell, and an easy transition back to regular length if it doesn't go well.

Not a ton of divots to land in down the center of the fairway, amirite?!

Interesting statement there. I've always gravitated to heavier head weights on drivers than is "normal" just for this reason. What's your current driver swing weight at? How would you see it changing going with tour length?

Jos, said that the shorter shaft, means even more center face/bullseye shots - more accurate and more distance

Smoke shaft didn't do that for me, but I like the concept and feel like it is similar to the Thriver setup that I adore.

Let's try this a different way. If the heavier head makes you feel like more in control and within your swing, what's swing weight where you feel it best and gives you that feeling of control, regardless if it's a driver or a big 3w or whatever you want to call it.

I really haven't spent a ton of time with this, honestly. I used to love the heavier 430cc heads with a 65g shaft. Seems like the lighter they get, the longer I get in my swing.

I would love to see a significant comparison from a good ball striker regarding average distance and fairways hit with tour length v standard length. Does Jos use tour length? While it’s obvious that center strikes will result in the highest smash factor, I wonder how much the extra inch reduces center strikes for a decent ball striker.

If I go standard SZ I'll go tour length b/c I cut down my shafts anyways.... If I go Xtreme, which is what im leaning towards, id play it at 45". I'm curious if the Xtreme in tour length with the heavier weight in back would raise launch and spin even more. The Xtreme I hit last week was very good numbers and I wouldn't want to launch higher or spin more.

I can kind of see that for you, because you have a long swing anyway. I have a much more compact swing and think I might miss a shorter club just as easily as the longer shafted club.

I'm sure it's validated on an Iron Byron - I know Rickie played Tour Length for 17/18 (it was a marketing talking point) not sure about last year.

I love my tour length driver that I game right now. I don't see any reason to not do it again. Gained accuracy and tightened the cluster up with it.

I was fitted for tour length and it helped with the dispersion.
