Hum... Somehow I feels that hybrid did not have the distance control and 'feel' I get from my woods. Perhaps because the head of the hybrid is heavier and thus less feedback as compared to FW.

Alvin, can share more abt the MP Ti FW? (read my status)

Hi Willy,

I was WINDOW shopping at Golf House last week and I was actually looking out for TM R9 FW. The feel of TM is good but I was hesitating because of the triangular shape cone... which I did not feel very comfortable about. Then I look around at the other brands...

To be frank, amist all the brands that GH carries... I was quite surprise that Mizuno FW caught my eye. I am a sucker for outlook more than feel when it comes to club selection (which explains why I bought my Callayway X-Forged without even trying)

The top view of the club head feels very smooth... the shape is a very typical custom FW (rounded and even) which I like. The profile of the clubface is very streamline... unlike the 'fat' looking clubface like the Titleist 909. No offense to Titleist but I for one dislike bulky looking clubheads when it comes to FW and Irons.

I never had the courage to ask for testing of the clubs if I am not buying but that day, I did. The shop assistant wrapped up the face and partially top before I start hitting some balls. Took a 5 Wood, S-Flex and the weight distribution is great; unlike many factory fitted shafts, it felt good.

Despite the masking tapped club face, the impact still feels excellent. Balls hit on the sweet spot actually felt like you didn't hit anything! It sounds pretty much like my previous Callayway Big Bertha FW but the difference is, the streamline clubhead actually makes it feels like the swing is smoother (Callayway Big Bertha head is actually quite big). Though hitting in a indoor range... but I am pretty sure it will do a good 200m carry at least.

5 balls is all it took to convince myself that if I don't find anything better... I will be coming back for this club! The only thing that stopped me from flashing out my Credit Card that day was the hefty price tag of $400 (after discount!) White Flag

Is there a discount till 400? i checked the price tag and it says 499!!!

Ebay is selling at USD189. GPP selling at USD249....convert it to SGD, it is about the same as 400...thought 499 is ex...but now woo hoo!!!!!

But i forgot to check if the shaft is fubuki 73g, do you remember what ah?

Heh... my 3i is about 15m... based on the progression of the club's length and loft of 2i... it will probably give me... 5m... (top + ball rammed into the ground!) hehe... -_-'''

You are making a big mistake... a 10-10 would be more appropriate...
