I bought this driver a couple of months ago, old driver was TM r 5 quad (or
something).
Yes the shaft for me it too long off the tee, i have to choke down an inch.
But i have found it is pretty good out of rough with a good lie instead of
a 3 wood. I have to grip at the end, put the ball in the centre of my
stance and swing very hard, it goes further than my 3 wood, quite low but
further.
As a result i have left the 3 wood out of the bag and use an extra wedge

As a driver i like it, a little bit further then my old driver , and i find
fades & draws are easier to control

James Silva says:

I would have to agree. I’m only 5’5 and the shaft for me is ridiculous.
I’ve adapted to swinging it, and on a good day, I could hit this around
270+ yards. I loved this more than the SLDR, which I previously owned, and
I liked hitting this more. I’m not the best golfer, but this driver is very
nice, and I recommend it. 

Lazy Bones says:

I bought the Jetspeed HL today, and took it out on the range. I have to say
that I had some interesting results with this club – if anything, I would
say that I’ve lost 10-15 yards with this club in comparison to my old
driver, but the forgiveness of the Jetspeed is just astonishing. What were
once vicious slices are now very slight fades, and pull hooks are now high,
arching draws. A great driver for the high – mid handicap golfer. I must’ve
hit 30 balls, and 28 of them were gun barrel straight.

Maurice Holding says:

Well Mark Did not find the shaft too long and after a few holes really
enjoyed hitting it and was consistant too worth a look for the price
compared to other drivers 

Winterstick549 says:

Is this the driver John Daly uses?
Is the long lenght ideal for tall players? I’m 6’2″.

The NONO says:

6:55 lol cheeky lockey

SuperShickey1 says:

I honestly didnt feel like the shaft was ‘too’ long when testing
this…though I am 6’3”! At address the club looks a tad chunky and
cumbersome, but it aligns really well and sits on the turf beautifully. I
loved the feel at impact, super soft and springy and the noise was
surprisingly soft and low compared to the X2 I was also trying. Out the
sweet spot the ball exploded off long and straight. Will be adding this to
bag shortly.

Schnicks_NZ says:

still using an r7 11.5 and putting it out there 310

theMANxGOLFER says:

I remember the good old days when Mark used to say 300-400 rpms of spin
makes little difference it’s more about the quality of strike. I know
shafts that can lower the launch and spin as much as the center of gravity
change discussed in the video and you don’t even lose the MOI of the club.
Shaf-toid out.

PingDrv00 says:

I am looking to see you do the reviews on the Cobra BioCell and BioCell+.
I guess the question of the day is are you going to bag the SLDR? The
numbers seem to point to the fact that properly set it is something
special.

Leftienige Blank says:

In view of TM’s “new laws of golf” that everybody in the world MUST HAVE a
17- degree launch angle and 1700 rpm of spin , I’d like to see you tweak
all the adjustable bits and bobs to match their notion of “perfect
conditions” and see how many miles it goes (or doesn’t go) . Cheers , Nige

TheLFCzone says:

Mark are going down the ‘Meandmygolf’ road?? You are both wearing matching
outfits, are you guys living together? haha

David Williams says:

The Ping is going on ebay. I’ve now played 3 rounds with the Jetspeed and
average about 280 meters with occasional 295-305 meters. It’s a weird
feeling when I try to slow my swing to have better control like my previous
drivers. I loose control and my ball either fades or draws. If I hit it
like I’m trying make a permanent flat spot on the ball I get a long
straight ball flight which I have never had the pleasure when I swing that
way. There is no way I would ever use any other driver now and if I broke
one per week for any reason, I’d buy one every week until I lost all my
balls and was not able to play anymore. Well worth the money for me. I
usually have a high ball flight with a fair amount of spin with other
drivers. If this sounds like you. Put one in your bag!!!

Ian Blackburn says:

Would love to see how you go about custom fitting Matt, but going through a
few more drivers trying different loft/shafts etc. This would great so we
can see how a custom fit actually should be done and therefore have a
comparison when we go and get one in our local pro shop. I sometimes get
the feeling it is literally just being handed a few drivers I might like
with no ‘real’ guidance for changing my numbers.

John M says:

Much better distance and dispersion for Matt.

BANDANA960 says:

If matt doesn’t like the length of the shaft he could use the Tp version
because it goes down to 44inch shaft and its slightly stiffer as well 

Judge Smails says:

Mark – All of this forward CG/Loft-up has my attention. Before I consider
moving to the Dark Side of the Force, I’d like to know how much club speed
plays into this… do I have to bring the heat in order to get the benefits
of Darth Taylor’s technology? Thanks!

mrtysonpants says:

Haha, love that you are poking fun at all the haters from the SLDR video. 

Johan Klarin says:

Very interesting indeed. Cheers

Adam Huckeby says:

Like the duo test mark. Would love to see this continued of possible. To
bad about your launch monitor being broken for the SLDR test. Glad to see
you got a new one.(wink)

badwargamer says:

Good giggle from Coach Lockey when you mentioned having the extra inch :)

Jesper Rodin Augustsson says:

i relly really hate the jetspeed driver…

Harrison pearson says:

If the shaft is to long you can get a new one 

David Williams says:

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the tips and videos, I have appreciated them get a lot out of
them.

I tested the Jetspeed driver and had it set to 9.5 straight out of the box
settings. I was getting some interesting numbers from it. My former drivers
were TaylorMade R11s set to 9 degrees and was averaging about 240m spin
rate average was 3000, the other is the Ping G25 set to 10.5 degrees
averaging 250m, not sure of spin rate. The Jet speed was giving spin rate
of 4000 – 4500rpm and ball flight was fine and I was hitting it 270m on
average, carry was 260m. Smash factor was at 1.4 and swing speed was
110mph. The spin rate is very high and seem a little bit absurd, But the
computer doesn’t lie, lol. The ball flight does seem to be a bit lower then
my previous drivers. Well I decided to buy the Jetspeed this afternoon,
after all 20m is 20m. I will be testing it on the course tomorrow to see if
the Ping or the Jetspeed will end up on ebay.

GrandmasterN says:

It would be very cool, if you could make a database with all the numbers of
all the drivers. Then one could do some quick comparisons. It would be
absolutely awesome!!

Liam Hale says:

Dress like your idol day?

Michael Ruppel says:

You guys look cute lol.

Andrew Allan says:

I think if Matt was fit into a better shaft for his swing I think he could
see better numbers with 910. He’s getting good launch with 910 just
spinning a little too much. Jetspeed might’ve been lower spin and more ball
speed but launch isn’t ideal. Think it would be interesting to see a test
where you try and find a better shaft for Matt then compare it again to
Jetspeed

Nick Hickman says:

I’d love to know if Mark or Matt put a TaylorMade driver in their
respective bags after. 

Ian Blackburn says:

Cheers matt looking forward to it
