I was fitted for the F7+ about two months ago....tipped an inch for control and bit of extra stiffness.

I also tried out a range including the Cally XR, PING G30, Mizuno JPX900 (horrible sounding club) and the M1.

 

F7+ was the lowest spinning, which is what I needed. Took a few rounds to really make friends on course, but I absolutely love it. Thinking of giving the fairway a crack too.

Hey Hack,

Clubhead Speed - 105
Ball Speed - 157
Launch Angle - 14.9
Spin - 2028
Offline - 8
Carry Distance - 279
Total Distance - 290

Swing speed was about the same give or take 2mph. There wasn't much difference between shafts but there was definitely differences in carry distances between heads and shafts. M2 and Epic were close in all aspects, but I liked the sound of the Epic better. The Epic and the Fujikura shafts provided the best ball flight. I had the driver set at 10*. I found the HZRDUS shaft was 'softer' than the others; Graphite Design was the 'stiffest' in stiff flex. I have the Graphite Design AD DI 7s in my M2 3 wood, but wasn't a fan of it in 60gm in the driver. I was astounded at the additional length I got over my XR Hot.

Solid numbers.

 

How did those distances compare to actual ball flight and the distance traveled?

Pretty impressive if it is metres.  

 

Dustin Johnson has a swing speed of around the 119mph mark and averages 287m.  Chevy manages to get that distance with a swing that is 14mph less.  Very impressive indeed.

With that club head speed and ball speed it is impossible to carry the ball that distance in yards, let alone metres.

Well I didn't want to come straight out and say "bullshit", I mean that that would have been, well, factual but disrespectful.  Besides doesn't everyone on ISG, apart from me, mouldy and Goldy hit it around the 250m mark?

Yes it would be impressive if it was metres but it wasn't. And the technology wasn't trackman. I think it was Skytrack or something like that.

Even at yards those carry numbers are about 5% too long.

Is it possible to manipulate these launch monitors to exaggerate results?

Absolutely.
Its not just possible, its probable.

Sales man at his finest.

But if the club works well for you, who cares

Thanks Rob, that certainly would make sense. The proof in the pudding for me wasn't the numbers, it was the ball flight, sound, and feel. Having said this, the Epic was definitely longer than anything I've hit before.

Hence, my earlier question.

What was the actual ball flight distance? Carry and final landing... What about actual dispersion?
