PostSubject: Which driver ?   Sun Nov 20, 2011 4:32 pm

Hi All,

Am given myself an excuse to change my driver because Christmas is around the corner.

I know it an silly question for me to ask but I still need to ask .... I did not have much chance to test any other driver over here where I am ...

Which new driver shall I buy ? Am still using TM R9 now. Thx

Thanks. I have a new shaft from BF but the driver club is washing off .. especially when I hit it all over the place drunken

I heard the old R9 TM superTri is as good as the R11, if not better. Anyone using this superTri ?

shi xiong,

I want to take this opportunity to thanks you for the tip on using one more club and do a p3-p3 swing .. It worked and it gave me a better accuracy. Sometime, I do a p3-p3.5 swing too. Thx

went back to see coach last month to re-enforce that I am doing my chipping/pitching swing correctly .. Have been playing well, since I return and the new ZIM putter gave me a better confidence too.

Did you say whether I can or cannot loan your supertri driver ? just kidding Laughing

Hitting it all over the place? The last we played your driver shots were very stable.

Sure or not? Or just looking for excuse to buy new driver for Christmas is it? Very Happy

Buy the latest. For sure there's always new technology.

Hahaha .. hitting 60 to 70% on fairway, no complain, man ... Stable ? it is all because I drive too short ROFL

Yes, just returned from the range after a game, how did you guess?

As usual, I would suggest adding to your list the latest Adams driver to be released soon.

http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/topic/539789-adams-speedline-fast-12-ls/

The only thing that can knock the Adams out of my bag is probably going to be another Adams. Or.... the Yonex ezone 380 (small head, not the most forgiving, but darn penetrating and long when hit correctly.)

So many toys, so little time... Enjoy your shopping.

Lee,

Wow the new Adams speedline fast12 driver look nice. However, I do not know about sliver color. White will be better.

I hope it is not anti-slice (club face slight closed) or it can be set too ? .. Wonder when it is available in Asia ?

As far as I know, Adams drivers are either square or slightly open. In fact, notorious for being open, designed for players fighting the lefts. Seems better players tend to have more left issues than right issues.

Also, slightly open allows one to close the club face aggressively, hitting more of a draw, which promotes distance.

I agree, silver seems a bit kitschy to me. Luckily it's not GOLD!

Not sure whether club face can be set or not. Waiting to see the detailed spec. Timing, at the moment, sometime in Jan. They bring it to asia pretty fast after launch.
