Adams A4 9015D for the best value for money.

very good feedback at the WRX forum (thread is on 49 pages liao). 'Only' US$90-100 brand new on Ebay

Thinking of buying another 9.5 or 10.5 head (now $79.95 on Ebay). 8.5 too much for me

JupJup,

I went down on Tues evening about 5pm but it was so crowded. I don't even know who is the owner. Someone seems to be pulling out clubs to try, haha...must be a very friendly boss, i guess.

Yes, I will make arrangement to go down again, anyway it is very close to my house!

Thanks

Straight and Long drives, I will vote for Cobra ZL with BFG white shaft.. Seems to be a good combination to me, very stable and good ball flight..

Thanks to Ivan from OCC.. Hehehe.. I've learnt not to give up on the 1st few bad shots, use for bout 3 weeks and I see the full potential of the beast!!

Anyway I never stop to try new product, will be switching to Taylormade Type E soon.. Hehehe..

Check this out bro,

Taylormade Japan introduces the all new R9 Max Type E driver! The new USGA Conforming Type E features several design improvements over the best selling R9 Max released earlier this year. Customers gave TM Japan feedback that for the average golfer, the CG was too much towards the heel and the overall weight of the club was too high which prevented average swingers from gaining distance.

The Type E moves the CG more in line with the center of the face and deeper and lower. The overall club is stretched back and the face shallower with a larger sweet area. TM has removed the MWT weight in the back for a fixed weight that provides optimal CG. The new Type E with its CG placment and shallower face is designed to spin less than the previous R9 Max.

By reducing weight in all three parts of the club, the head, the shaft, and the grip. The 45.75" Type E is around 20g lighter than the R9 Max! (depending on flex of the shaft the difference in weight is even more). What this equals is increased swing speed and distance over the previous R9 Max.

The new R9 Max Type E like the previous R9 Max features Flight Control Technology (FCT) which lets the player adjust, face angle, loft and lie. A larger, more triangular high MOI shaped head for easy launch and maximum performance. The R9 Max Type E also features TM's Inverted Cone Technology milled directly to the inner side of the face which creates an expanded COR zone. The R9 Max Type also uses Ultra Thin Wall technology allowing for thinner club head walls for weight savings.



Anyway the only thing I can feel from the driver head is that the face is very thin, which makes me feel good somehow.. Hahaha... I switch completely from Taylormade to Titleist/Cobra, now I'm changing my driver back again to Taylormade, let's see how long I can last before I change to 909..

No doubt that he has potential. I've seen him swing. I was about to alert the MBGC range management that their back fence may be torn from his shots.

But to see a 100m improvement is amazing!! I definitely have to see this driver.

i think D_iceman also switch from a newly bought R9 to a Nakashima. So it must be quite a good driver, that said i might be buying the Monster, any review from u?

In one way, you can say that Nakashima is a good driver, in another way, it may result that you are not a good golfer cos you can only hit with one type of driver... j/k
