  1. Pfffft they are both lovely drivers, all the rubbish on the bottom I
    couldnt give a toss about, once it is fit I never want to see an adjustment
    again. I just like a classic looking club with a low penetrating flight,
    dont care about spin, if I hit it, like it and it performs well for me its
    in the bag. Amazing selection of drivers on teh market right now, do you
    want high, low, friendly, scarey you can find just the club for your bag
    from almost any manufacturer. We live in interesting times i think. Alas,
    my bag is now complete for the next couple of years, I dont want to change
    my lovely red Nike Covert woods or VR Pro irons so I will feel like a child
    with my nose pressed up against the sweet shop window for the forseeable
    future :-)

  2. Here is an interesting question. I am a low spin hitter and my spin numbers
    generally come out low [with my g30 I get as low as 1800rpm subject to
    strike]. Why is that? I know you would need to see my launch monitor
    numbers etc..etc..however I am sure you have seen similar people like this?

  3. This reminds me of a time when Mark and I were younger. His dad used to run
    a burger van in Swindon that did sort of slap up hot dogs and chips etc.
    Place used to be filthy, mouse droppings all over the place and Mark’s job
    used to be to clean them all up. But he never used to just sweep them away,
    he would pick them up individually by hand and put them into a jar with
    vinegar. He reckoned the smell after a year of fermenting was enough to
    fell a horse. He then used to sniff it after 6 months or so and apparently
    it made him high. Was a weird kid but a nice fella.

  4. Mark, I’m interested to know why the lower spin, smaller headed drivers are
    supposedly more for lower handicap players? I get the smaller cc element
    and guess that you have a smaller face (is that right?!) but would a miss
    hit on a 430cc club be that much worse than on a 460cc club? I’m interested
    to learn where the ‘forgiveness’ element comes from on some clubs and how
    much more ‘forgiving’ they actually are.

    You mentioned that you were going to do some videos on this so they may
    well answer my questions!! 

  5. @mark crossfield – I was fitted for a driver a few years ago – taylormade
    R11S. My ball speed was averaging at 146mph, smash factor 1.49, spin rate
    2200 and launch angle at 14 degrees. However, my carry distance averages at
    236 yards. My numbers don’t seem to far out from yours so why the big
    difference in carry?

  6. ive been having trouble with distance and contact lately, I live in the US
    and its very cold like mid 30’s low 40’s with no grass and sloppy grounds
    and I am a good ball striker and I was hitting 7 iron almost 170 this
    summer and now im struggling to hit it 155 is it just a coincidence or do
    you think its just the temperatures and conditions?

  7. I bought the sldr 430 because of the great numbers I saw players getting
    with it, the smaller head shape, and the loft up tech in it. I like
    taylormade and hit the driver pretty well. Would love to see a video
    talking about how forgiving, or not forgiving, the low spinning drivers on
    the market are compared to what are considered to be “forgiving” drivers
    such as the g30. 

  8. I’m currently using taylormade r11 driver average 270-280 carry. I find
    with alot of reviews and club test they compare only to new to new clubs
    what I really want to know as I don’t buy drivers every 6 months. Will a
    new driver give me better results? 

  9. I’d be curious to see you take the DBD out on the course. From your numbers
    it seems to be a little bit straighter for you as well. Nevermind that
    little Blockey action, chalk it up to an outlier!
