Hence, my earlier question.
What was the actual ball flight distance? Carry and final landing... What about actual dispersion?


Discounting the LM numbers, I was hitting the fence on the full at the back of Sharky's driving range at Horsley Park. I estimate that would be in the vicinity of 20m-30m past the 200m marker. In terms of ball flight I would say it was medium to high; I was trying to hit 'up' on the ball, and I was using Pro V1s. The ball flight was higher than my XR Hot. The Speeder 661 shaft made a huge difference to my Aldila NVS in the XR. In terms of dispersion, the less than optimal swings resulted in a fade that at worst leaked about 20m right of straight. The LM data was based on the average of 10 drives. Hope this answers your questions.

Had a hit with the club fitter yesterday.

 

Nice.

 

Good contact with the Fairway, felt confident and comfortable with it, solid piercing ball flight. Trackman said I was getting a carry of around the low 180m, total of around low 200m.

 

Driver sounds like a shotgun going off. My swing needs a bit more work to get the best out of the Driver. Swingspeed maxed at 97 mph with Trackman showing a carry of 220m. Most were lower swingspeeds, and getting a carry of 200m, with a total of 220m. I'd like to have a consistent and accurate swing averaging up above 230m, so a carry of upwards of 210m. Not far too go ... but more work on the swing.

 

Driver feels bloody nice though. Shaft nice n stiff - it has the XLR8 61 pro (stiff) in it.

I liked the sound of the Cobra; but I preferred the sound of the Epic.
