    ^ Sorry ... posted a little too quickly. Looks like they're out of stock. Too bad - it's a good looking hat.

    I found the n+, n, ++ opens it up more. The rest with more upright lie closed it for me. Depending on your swing style.

    Smart Man! Equipment all Day Long!

    I have used my EXS Drive my last 2 Rounds in the Cold (40-45) and Rain and I'm hitting farther than my old Driver last Summer! Can't wait until it warms up!

    I moved the heavy weight to the back last week and it came alive for me a little bit. When you catch it right it does want to go. Still haven't gotten outside with it yet due to rain and other commitments.

    Like other TEE clubs I own, the stock Lamkin grip doesn't work for me. Just feels super thin like I'm not holding anything and the club will fly out of my hand. That will be changed soon.

    I've gotten a few rounds in with the EXS now and have a few observations:

    1. Love the looks, feel and sound.
    2. The EXS is longer than anything I've hit in the last 5 years or so on good and bad hits.
    3. The driver wants to go straight or to the right for me. My miss with my G400 was left, so, I naturally gravitated to lining up down the right side off the tee. When I took that set up with the EXS, I hit the drive down the right hand side exactly where I lined up. I know it should be simple to just change my set up, but, habits are hard to break and I still miss to the right a lot with this driver.
    4. I cannot hit a draw with the EXS no matter how hard I try. This is very confusing since all the described tech at neutral settings would imply it should be draw biased. @Sox_Fan has commented on this several times.
    5. My miss with the EXS has been predominately right, and sometimes with a fade even further right. I HATE this and need to fix it. I rarely hit a fade, and never a slice. A lot of holes on my primary course have fairway bunkers on the right side. I've been wearing those traps out with the EXS. The good news is, I couldn't reach those traps before. ;)
    6. I'm a little confused on how to tweak this thing. I have a 9.5* and was hitting the drives very high (not unusual, my G400 is 9.0* dialed down to 8.0*). Today I dialed the EXS down to 8.5* and was really concerned that I'd fade the ball even more since I believe that opens the face a bit. Instead, I hit the rest of the drives straight. My logical brain is having difficulty processing this.

    Some questions for the group:

    Am I correct that the driver comes preset to the FTS1 Setting--9 grams in the heel, 3 grams in the rear? This should yield a slight draw bias, and they describe that set up as low spin, medium launch, slice reducing flight. I almost swapped those when I first got the driver, since I don't normally fade the ball. But, I'm glad I didn't since I have hit some fades and push fades with the current set up.

    Is there any way to tweak the settings to get a little more draw bias? I know I could probably do it with the weight kit, and maybe with different shafts, but, I'd rather exhaust all options with the current set up before that.

    I'd appreciate any thoughts from y'all on this. I think the EXS has a lot of potential for my game, but, am a little frustrated with the level of control I have with it so far.

    Great write-up Ken. Glad someone else concurs with my puzzling assessments. It wasn't until I lofted up to 10.5 and had the heavier weight in the heel that I was able to realize some draw with a really good swing. You are correct that the 9 in heel and 3 in back is the stock setting. If you do decide to get a weight kit to go heavier in the heel to try to get more draw bias, you are going to be adding swing weight. The kit comes with 6, 11 and 14 gram weights. I'm not sure what length you are playing it at, but I have 2 shafts (one at 45" and one at 45.25") and can only draw it with the slightly shorter one in. I have the 9 gram in heel and 6 gram in back to get the swing weight I wanted. Tried 11 and 3 and just didn't work for me.

    Honestly, I love that you two are seeing what you are. I talked about that when I was working on the review, despite everything telling you it should be draw biased, that head simply is not. Nope nope nope.

    I'm playing it with the stock Tensei Blue and would assume that is 45.25". They don't show the length in their specs. If I moved up to the N+ setting 10.5* the lie would go up .5*. I thought lofting up closed the face some and lofting down opens it. I'm not sure how the lie angle plays into this. The U+ get it to 10.5* with the lie going up 2.5*. My concern with going up is that I hit all drivers very high and really like a mid flight. I may try going up to N+ tomorrow just to see what happens.
