    Going back and checking my stats...

    With the Rogue SZ I was hitting 40% FW and had an average drive of 279.

    With the Epic Flash SZ I'm at 50% FW (and trending up) with an average of 286.

    I think the main difference for me is the adjustable perimeter weight allowing me to dial things in a bit more. I've got the right side of the course basically eliminated now. The confidence I have now that I've found the right shaft makes driving the ball really, really fun.

    Yes, I am playing that combo, not because I got fit into it but because that's the shaft that came on it when I bought it used. (I've never been fitted and have no idea what my swing speed or ball speeds are but I average about 280-290 yards off the tee if that means anything.) I have heavier Hzrds yellow shafts in my 3 (83g) and 5 wood (76g) that I like a lot. However I think that shaft (Tensei Blue) fits well for me with the driver. It doesn't feel like swinging lumbar but it also doesn't feel like swinging a spaghetti noodle, it's a good middle ground. I found with the heavier shaft in my 3 wood, I get tired earlier if I'm swinging alot at the driving range. But with the lighter shaft, I'm not tired at all after 50-75 swings on the driving range and I feel confident when pulling driver especially on later holes in the round.

    Forgive the ignorance and skimming, but I recently put a new shaft in my EF that has me playing at 44.5". I'm finding the center way more often, I also found out the PF V2 HL shaft I was using was uncut so it was closer to 46".

    Anyways it feels a little light now. Was thinking about picking up a couple APW to mess with. What size is that standard weight? I searched this thread and think I found its 16.5? Also I found some from GolfWorks and some on Ebay, any real big difference? I'm at work right now so I cant check but I'm assuming you just unscrew the old weight and pop in the new weight?

    Thanks guys!

    Without going through 2960 posts, what do you know about the Epic Flash SZ drivers? Has anyone hit one alongside a std SZ to compare?

    New longest drive today. 328, down hill, down wind, all carry. The Flash/Smoke combo really responds well to swinging hard and really getting after the ball.

    Very nice dude! It's cool to see this is a beast for others.

    I've been struggling with consistency and hitting fairways lately but that's totally on my swing and trying to swing harder. I had another 300 yard drive today which was nice but I need to start hitting more fairways. I have a round tomorrow that isn't as forgiving off the tee so we'll see how it goes.

    I'm truly impressed with my EFSZ 3wd (that replaced my Rogue). Leaning toward the EFSZ Triple Diamond. Does anyone have any first hand feedback on it?

    Boy did I test the forgiveness on this one today. I hit two or three decent drives and the rest were mediocre but still found the fairway. On off center hits I was till seeing some respectable distances that helped me save the round.

    Hit this one again yesterday vs the F9 and M5, I wish they were 9.0 heads like this one for a better head to head, but ball speed winner was this one of the three.

    How tight are you guys wrenching down the movable weight? I loosened it to move it and after a dozen or so hits it loosens up and rattles. I feel like I'm about to break it.
