    It is not the clubs. It is me. Probably the biggest issue is that I'm hitting every club about 20 yards shorter than I did 6 months ago. I'm hoping that a good part of that is due to poor swing/contact and not just loss of strength. Took the JPX 900 Forged irons out recently and same story.

    Expecting the CBX irons anytime as I was told the backordered UST iron shafts were back in stock.

    This driver is definitely a keeper! 9 of 11 fairways today playing in winds that were hitting 25 - 30 mph the majority of the round. One of the missed fairways was an intentional miss on a long par 4 playing into the teeth of the wind. Aimed at the cart path just right of the fairway and hit it to give me an extra 20 or 25 yards. The other missed fairway was where a huge crosswind got the better of the ball. Today's round featured 2 drives that were 20 - 30 yards longer than I had ever hit drives on those 2 holes. They were wind aided but still felt damn good to reach places I never have before.

    As Jman has stated more than once, don't sleep on this driver!

    I tried the driver yesterday. It outdrove my rogue 10-20 yards. Need to adjust it and my swing style for the slices and draw that I'm used to on my rogue. That sound is amazing.

    I agree about the sound. Don't think I have ever hit a driver that felt so hot off the club face.

    Will be giving the EXS line a try once it thaws out here. Glad to see my local fitting center carrying TEE gear again. So far they have the EXS and HL3 lines.

    Just waiting on irons and wedges. May have been good to get them at different times to get adapted to some clubs before introducing more new ones.

    I've hit a demo cbx iron a few times now. Makes my knees weak. They are butter. Will be interested in your thoughts.

    Had a go at it at the driving range that morning. Interesting fact, when I used my usual swing set up where ball is smack center in position, it would slice. But when I put the ball slightly forward to the front to right side, straightest balls and beautiful fades I ever seen. 170 yards when the rogue gave me 150 yards. Maybe I need to thinker with the shaft adjustment options

    You’re talking in the center position wise but still off the front foot, right?

    Tour Edge Exotics EXS Driver Review

    I think so. Just to give you a better idea.

    With the driver, we would line up ball in center (line in black). But my impact would be towards the left of the center.

    When I line the ball up slightly offset (the blue line) , smack on center impact .



    From another perspective it would be below



    Does it make sense ?

    I get that, but are you still setting up the the ball off the inside of your front foot?

    As for the results when aligning differently on the face, honestly, that sounds like a swing path thing to me.

    So usually I follow the rule where I set up the ball inside or middle my left foot. Do you think changing shaft settings will help ?

    I will continue to hit a few more and tinker along the way
