    So I want to buy one of these. I like the look of the head, from what I have read and hit indoors it's plenty forgiving. I wanna try out all the adjustibility etc.

    The issue is the SIM I was in said I was launching about 17-18 degrees with the 9.5 head and the Motore shaft. I've mentionned before that I hit everything really high, so this is not surprising to me, since what I hear about this head is it launches high.

    So my question, would I be best served to get an 8.5 head? Never has one before (keep in mind I played an 9.5 degree i15 last season - maybe a bit too low launch with Axivcore)

    Also, I like active tip shafts (I know right?) Doesn't make any sense for a guy with a steep attack that hits it high... Anyhow this is why I'm ok with the NV and blueboard - they keep it down somewhat, but still offer some good feel.

    I was thinking I'd like to try the Fubuki (63 or 73) in an 8.5 head? It's next to impossible to get fit here in VT, so I will prob go blind here. Part of the fun I guess LOL

    Thoughts?

    C,

    Consider a 910. Both the D2 and D3 heads are very, very nice. And the adjustability might lend in developing your lower ball flight.

    Consider a RIP or a PX Tour shaft. Both are solid.

    I'm typing this from the floor in the basement. You don't have to tell me.

    The difference over the new designs from priors is the head shape. It's no longer pear shaped and more traditional now. Very solid look from address and the ball just jumps off the face.

    What about the only stuckup a-holes play titleist bit that you were so hung up on?

    I would never expect that from Rock.

    If you have a "steep angle" of attack and hit it high then you spin the sh*t out of it, yes? Or do you mean "steep" as in high launch angle? There's a difference between the 2.

    I think I just launch it real high. I play the ball pretty far forward and catch it on the upswing is part of it

    It's still the norm around here. Thursday night in the sim, there were two kids that couldn't have been more than 15. Each had a full set of new 910's and forged blades. From their swings and scores, they were in over their heads with that equipment. Mommy came to pick them up when they were done driving a new Range Rover.

    That said, my regular playing partner is going all 910/Titleist for 2011. I find it ironically funny that he joined a semi private after years of being in a public course membership. He plays Mizuno/TM now and plays well with them. So his driving push to change? "It's all about looks, my friend."

    A-holes. Hence why I recommended it to you. :cool:

    That aside, I would play the 910 driver IF it wasn't adjustable. But that's it. No FWs, no irons.

    Titty irons don't do it for me either tbh

    Drivers and wedges are awesome tho.

    And I play what works - I don't give a rats ass what people think. Same reason I didn't buy the TotalOnes this year and went with the One70. At 160 lbs I just can't get what I needed out of that skate.

    Just arrived. A 9.5 degree Supertri head. Need shaft to match now. Will drop into golf shop, pick up a armfull of demo shafts and start work in the lab. Still probably a bit (post-op) premature to get a good idea. Will wait until I am 100% before making a final decision. Heard much about the RIP shaft, what is it similar to?

    I tried the RIP in an adams head - felt a little firm. I'm thinking about the Fubuki

    The RIP plays almost exactly like the VS Proto, in my opinion. Same feel, same launch, same spin. If I was a betting man, I'd say same shaft, different paint, more hype.

    I found this to be true also. Exact reason I sold the RIP and put a TP adapter on one of the 4 or 5 VS Protos I had laying around.

    That said, if you want a shaft that, IMHO, feels like no other....get yourself a Harrison SAGA. I played one for the 1st time last Thursday in my B'stone J33 and this shaft along with this head = a league of it's own. So much so that I have 2 more on the way.

    What's your SS and tempo like?

    I swing 95-100 and hate tip stiff boardy feeling shafts.

    Love - Blueboard, YS-6, NV, Pershing
    Hate - Creation, Motore F1, PX

    I vehemently disagree. Upon winning the lottery, I would purchase a Cayenne Turbo to drive while deciding which other vehicles I would need. And I would not have "I'd rather be driving a Titleist" on the bumper.
