PostSubject: Going back to old faithful Driver   Tue Jan 19, 2010 9:52 am

Just wondering if I am the odd one here. Anyone has the same symptoms as me or is this just a mirage?

Was using the Sumo Driver for the past 12+ months...which I purchased to replace my Clevage lancher 400cc......

Sumo was pretty ok ...better distance but need to embrace the fade nature of it.......But last week, hands itchy, went back to old faithful.....walau..pretty amazed that drives are more predictable and less fade....and distance gap is minimal....

maybe becos its my swing whish is more stable or some good karma....but I am sticking back to my old faithful...

DS, I'm thinking of moving back to my Cleveland Launcher 09 driver too.

Yeah, MC is a bad example. You don't go back to your old drivers, you progress forward with your new drivers.

i did try... *looking at jc's avatar* .. the G15 and i15.... *looking at jc's avatar* .. i like the G15... *looking at jc's avatar* .. more.. it launches easier.... *looking at jc's avatar* ..

i15 is also not that shabby..... *looking at jc's avatar* .. low ball flight... and ball.. i mean... ... *looking at jc's avatar* .. rolls more... due to ... *looking at jc's avatar* .. flight trajectory.


but... ... *looking at jc's avatar* .. i not interested to get either... ... *looking at jc's avatar* .. becuz of the price... ... *looking at jc's avatar* .. it is too ... *looking at jc's avatar* .. BIG.. i mean high... too high. the price is to high... *looking at jc's avatar* ..

Sidetrack a bit.....fabulous avatar!

Me think alike too. Old is gold for me when it comes to driver.
Find it hard to adjust to new head so sticking with my
R7 superquad, with a shaft change though.

Yeah. I agree, Cyp. But that's not always the case for me. In fact, that's hardly the case for me.

After mucking about with a Titty 905R w/ Diamana WB 73S, an R7 Limited TP with TM Diamana 65S, a Ping G10 w/ Fujikura Rombax 6Z08 S, a King Cobra L4V w/ Diamana WB63, and a tour-issued TM 10.7* Tour Burner w/ Diamana Ali'Islei S, I still keep coming back to the TM Tour Burner 9* LCG w/ TM Diamana 63X shaft for distance and accuracy.... don't know why, but this combo, even with X flex shaft really bombs it. Almost as far as the new FT-iz, but I'm not too keen on how that driver feels...

I started with a TM Burner Draw, then a Cobra Speed LD, then a Titleist 905R, and finally back to TM Burner non-draw version. All these within the last 1.5 years.

Still like the TM, but doesn't like the ball flight as i find it a little high. May be new driver next. Smile
