Nice review andrew...
If my swingspeed was high enough to use the ilima, I'd be very happy; let alone the stinger. Rolling Eyes

I'm using an R flex ilima, which is made for us mere mortals with less than spectacular swingspeed. You can perhaps check that out Smile

Justin.....its the 2010 line from Diamana. low/mid kick and a smoother shaft than the Kaili. Prayad Markseang was using this at the Barclay's Open.

this is like a 2nd generation red board with 68% graphite content. the first generation is about 50% graphite and 50% resin.

yo Andrew...

The boys were treated to lots of birdies and nothing but pin point accuracy and great short game during your very normal 4 over game yesterday. it just show that its not how far you drive but the style of arriving that counts.

and68low, thanks for the game! Great fun and I learnt a lot from you.
I apologize to my flight mates for my bad display of temper on that par 3. Sad (very bad form and unacceptable behaviour)

Anyways, I've never tried the stinger and so I don't know what it takes to handle the stinger shaft.

But I've seen your shots, and I think you can tip your ilima slightly stiffer; you look like you are holding back on your drives, maybe a tad worried that the ball might leak out right if you cranked up your swing? Hahahaha.. it's just my untrained observation lah.. I'd gladly have your drives/swing any day!

Shotal,
Its indeed a great honour to be accepted as a member but conferring me as an honourary member its just show your unreserved generousity and kindness as members and as friends. I unreservely accept your invitation!!! Thank You !
Its another excuse for another outing and dinner("who, where and how" I leave it to you )shotah, please help me to arrange.

ssquirrel,
I will take your trained and talented skill in golfing matters with respect and had told the Master of what is needed on my new shaft. But I can only cranked up another 5% at most ( lau liao) engine might have a blow out. ha ha... Thanks, please dont hessitate to give more advise and criticism, gladly will heed it with respect.

yours,

andrew

And68low, we never need any excuse to have dinner, golf, or outing, we only need to "manage", (the words of our senior advisor of the SCBs.) I put your advice into use today, was hitting my irons well today, the only was, ALIGNMENT and DIRECTION, hahahha. Seriously, need to find a saat saat pre-shot routine liao. As i recall, in my 18 hole today, there was no similar pre-shot routine in all my shots. But i could see the difference. Only consolation for my bad score was a 18 foot double break bride on the 14th.

Lets try to max out as much as we can (if the pocket permits) within this two months before i commence on my new journey and works towards the "4 circles". And let me know whenever you want to play warren.Smile

As for the driver, i think you are already very solid liao, maybe some attention should be given to your 3wd instead.... Smile

From now on.... we leave no SCBs out of any outing... we must at least ask... any SCB who miss outing on 3 continuous occasion without any valid reason (OT is not a valid reason), will have his membership temporary suspended by the brotherhood. heheheh

Shotal, Great to know it works(was it the trigger finger we spoke about?or the back swing?) , always happy to know fellow golfers can improve their game. Sure thing my friend we will help u max out your golf mileage before your new journey.
Like i said before golf is a hobby for me and therefore we should share whatever knowledge and info we have that can be beneficial to all.
You are spot on about my 3w, weakest club in my bag. any advice from any u guys, please comment. seriousely when i hold my 3w, i feel uncomfortable like a 24 hcp.

It was the back swing..... I use to take 2 secs to complete my entire swing, now, my back swing slow down to 2 secs, not sure if it is enough. But like you said, i think i could feel my club better and knowing i will not reverse pivot (like what SS mention to me and the sauna pool) if i on a pressure shot and need to whack harder.

As for the 3wd, although its my strongest club in the bag but i will screw up every now and then, you witness it yesterday but today was solid. I just take away longer. and when i come down, i make sure my path of the club stay square much earlier and longer.. (hahaha, i think i talking cock here). Dunno if its the head though but i feel that when i got a smaller and deeper head, i will focus and commit more (the words of DGman) into the shot. If you want, i can let have a go at my Vsteel.... its my standby. Smile
