Sorry for no visuals at the time!--- After a few years of bag and game go down the drain and talking with @2BFAST (Brian) about my current set-up I decided it was time for a new driver. I was hitting (Taylormade RBZ Black 9*, on standard settings) and just buying what ever I could on sell that "looked" to be decent, not truly realizing the impact it had on my game.
With that said, I knew my wife would castrate me for spending the money on the newest and best. After a couple rounds with poor service at some of the bigger box retailers, I settled in at Edwin Watts golf store. I explained to the guy helping me what my price range was...
We settle in on 4 drivers to test.
Taylormade M4, 9* w/ amtos 70g
Cobra F8+, 9* w/ Aldila NV Green 65g
Ping G400, 8.5* w/ Pings x-stiff tour 65g
Wilson C300, 9* w/ unsure of the shaft but was x-stiff
All produced better #'s than what I was hitting,
Spin Rate Ball Speed Club Speed Total Launch Ang Attach Ang M4 2864 165.6 114 291 9.9 1.9 F8+ 3020 169.2 115 294 10.2 1.7 G400 3315 163.2 113 284 10.6 1.9 C300 3364 158.6 114 266 11.1 2
Needless to say I wore myself out after about 15 balls per club, but the end result was I walked out of the store with the Taylormade M4 for right at $250.00 with a lousy trade in of $52.
Have a round planned tomorrow so looking forward to seeing the results. I will keep everyone posted.
