But anyway, I am going with the Ilima/Cobra combo this weekend for the medal rather than the Kajiki/TM R7 combo.

Post your FIR for the game please. Razz

Rex,

Similar to Kaili.

Work it meaning working the ball out and up. How I do it.

Yes. Let the Shaft do the work.

With the 5 series and Kajiki, I will just hit the ball. But with the Ilima and 8 Series, I will rotate my hips first, then pull a smooth swing through all the way till the follow through.

geddit? or is that too laymanish?

OK

So U prefer to work it or just hit it?

Also, its longer than which shaft u had? 5 series? Kajiki? Kai'li?

Had my first game at Keppel with the Ilima last sunday.

It was an eye-opener. Out of 7 shots, 2 turn out desirable and 1 was PERFECT. So that is like a 43% hit.

Compared to the Kajiki, dispersion is similar. But the ball flight is lower and more definitive. I get a lot more roll with the Ilima, thus it is bringing me places that I have not been before.

This is part of an on-going long term review. When I find the time, I will put the Graman 5 Series, the Kajiki and the Ilima to test with the trackman.

Unfortunately, I do not think I will be able to use similar heads for each shaft but I believe the results will be fairly similar due to technological advancement these days.

yes. It is still the slices L-R mostly.

I had alot of pushes intially but that more or less has already been sorted out.


I am honestly more comfortable with the Kajiki but that may be because I have been playing longer with it. I am still going to stick to the Ilima for a lot more games before I finally decide which one to stick.

Could be more of a swing fault. When u get on that Trackman, hv a look at ur club path and club face.

If u intend to get rid of it, u-know-who will be interested...

With the Ilima? Were you the gentleman I met at BFG last time and you let me try out your driver?

eh, dun underestimate your head/shaft combo hor. Clearly capable of long and straight drives. The Ilima is truly an excellent shaft, and the R9 head is soooo very forgiving

26122009 WIMCB.

D: Cobra S9.1 Pro S 9.5° TP/Diamana ilima 70 S
W: TM R9 T3 13°/Graman M75
H: Cleveland Launcher 2i 18.0°/True Temper Crossfire
H: Cleveland Launcher 4i 23.0°/True Temper Crossfire
I: 5 to P Mizuno MP62/Project X 5.5
AW: TM 52°, 8° bounce/Project X 5.5
SW: TM 56°, 12° bounce/Project X 5.5
LW: TM 60°, 7° bounce/Project X 5.5
P: 35" Zen Oracle Tour Mallet
B: Titleist Pro V1/V1x, Callaway Tour i/iX with 2 Green dots on the right of the number.

I am getting the hang of the Ilima and I like it alot as I get more roll and find it easier to work with. On the good hits, I am getting distances from 250m to 270m depending on the wind and elevation, but mostly flat and almost still wind conditions. Comparing to Kajiki, I would say 5 to 10% more distance. Dispersion is similar.

Looks like it is in the bag.
