That looks really really promising to me. Thanks for the feedback. What kind of swing speed are we talking here? How was the launch/spin on the RDX?
It's really been a game-changer (or for the month of January - an indoor range-changer). The old shaft was a Hzrdus Green 6.5 playing 44.5" and the new one is the 6.5 TX playing 45.5", so I'm guessing an extra inch of length on the driver may also play into the distance change.

But to answer your question - SS is 112-15 on normal swings, can get close to 120 when I'm going after it. Launch on the Green was around 10-11*, Black was around 13-14*. Spin rate on Green was 1800-2100, Black was around 2300 or so. Perhaps most surprisingly, the black actually feels a little softer than the green, even though the black is a tx and the green is just the 6.5. It may be worth noting that I threw a heavier weight in the back of the Sim, which will also promote a higher launch and heavier swingweight (which will likely make the shaft a little whippier).

I popped into the PGA Superstore while my daughter was at practice. I bought an RTX4 Black 54* S400 bent to 55* and 1.5* flat. They know me so they were kind enough to bend it to my specs on the spot at no charge. I actually like the RTX4 shape and looks a bit better than the Zipcore I own so I may pick up a couple more now that they are on sale for $99 and they still had a nice selection in the satin and black.

Nothing better than getting an outstanding model wedge for significant savings only because they've released a newer version; that's a win-win no matter how you slice it!

Caddydaddy Pro Glove. I loved the regular caddydaddy that I had to compare the pro.

The Minnetonka PGATSS? They have a lot of very good people there.

Golf Canada membership! I'll have an official handicap next year instead of those just from Arccos.

Just bought a set of TaylorMade M CGB irons from eBay. I'd recently bought the 7 iron and enjoyed playing with it and the sound. It's a bit risky as I haven't had a chance to try it out for real on a course but I need something to take the edge off this lockdown which supposedly ends mid-February (I'm not so sure it will though) so I thought it would be fun to try them all out. Even playing with the 7i on my putting matt was fun so it should be interesting and more fun with these.

Also, the TaylorMade Stratus Tech Golf Gloves arrived a couple of days ago and they are really nice. I was happy I went for the right size too as they fit really well.
So, with the putter, irons, bag and glove I'm all dressed up but with nowhere to go...:(
