I have just picked up (in the last 3 weeks or so) 2 new additions to my already overloaded kit....

R7 Ltd driver with the stiff matrix stock shaft and a Mizzy MX Fli-Hi 20 degree 3i replacement thingy.

R7 Ltd is a top quality driver. I've had 5 rounds with it now and am finding more fairways which is my main priority. It's long enough and the shaft is really smooth. It looks good too, which isn't the B all but nice all the same.
It's forgiving and I like the 440cc head size, seems a little more controllable and sets up really sweetly behind the ball. Have to say that watching some Brian Manzella clips has also helped my driving but I am glad I grabbed one of these and at the moment they are good value 2nd hand.

Got the hybrid despite being able to hit a 3i decently off the tee I am prone to block it off the deck so thought this would be a better bet all round. I am not convinced it suits me so well yet. It is very forgiving and hits a nice high flighted ball when I get it right but like many I am prone to pull it more often than not. Need some practice with it but if you use hybrids I would suggest trying this as its a very sweet feeling stick when its flushed and not at all bad when you give it a slight mis-hit.

Am now seeking some ridiculous tartan trousers to ensure there is no doubt that I really am a total pratt and I'm fixed.....for now.

Just a quick update on the R7 Ltd.

No doubt this is the best driver I've had. Today on a mildly wind assisted 485 yard par I had an 8 iron in after having a half gap wedge to the previous par 4. It's a bomber and so forgiving.

If you don't really need the FCT for the R9 and drive ok this is a killer combo with the matrix shaft.

I even sold my back up - tempting fate city here I come but just can't see past this club.

Amended that for you.

:biglol:

Bastardo!!!

Too well you know me Ho-bi Wan

Seriously though I hit one drive 300+ today - honest - 160 left from 485 - bounced higher than your monthly paypal bill admittedly but man, it went miles.

How's the carry/launch on that driver with that shaft? Was looking at one in a 10.5* with the Matrix last night online. I need to get the ball up off the tee. I'm changing courses next year, and the new place is much softer, whereas I hit the FT-i relatively low (though it's supposed to be high launch) and it rolls like crazy where I play now. That won't happen at the new place, where there are also more dog legs where I need more carry to cut corners.
