Bigpete...yes I agree, they are 3 great brands when it comes to Equipment, but its limitation of the demo equipment that is the issue, and not being able to compare to others is a bit of a let down...ah well, thats what you get for living in a country town with only ONE pro shop....but hey, its one of the best golf course in Australia...so not really going to argue too much
Thanks guys, some things I had not considered there. The JPX wood option is a thought that never crossed my mind.
I had time to swing past the club this morning to make sure my name is down for Saturday and had a quick look at the demo equipment.
Ping G25 - 3 Wood Regular Shaft (plenty of left handed options....)
Titleist 913F - 3 Wood Blue Diamana Reg
Titleist 913FD - 3 Wood Blue Diamana Stiff (I am sure I can swap shafts between the F and FD)
Titleist 913F - 3 Wood Black Diamana Stiff
Mizuno MP650 - 3 Wood Stiff....I am SURE I saw that Saturday...couldn't find it so it might be on loan.
Mizuno JPX - 3 Wood Regular
Mizuno JPX - 5 Wood Stiff
So thats all I get to hit unless I get a chance to travel to Perth...only go 4 times a year so not holding my breath.
I did get a chance to have a look at the shapes etc of all the new non demo styles.
Ping look "meatier" and more solid, that matt black is just awesome.
Titleist looked just sleek. Familiar look to the driver...did like the look ...I hadn't really taken much notice before. The FD I doubt I will use. I don't use the 3 Wood off the tees much, and to be honest, a normal 3 wood without a tee will suffice when required.
JPX...ok this was a surprise. I didn't even consider that as the Driver "rocks back" on its sole and that just turned me off them...however....the 3 wood sat nice, and did look purrty.
So over the next few weeks I might head down after my round or morning on Sunday and hit a few down the range side by side to compare...its going to be hard to get a good comparison with that range...but we will see what we can do.
The mention of adjustibility earlier in the thread was interesting. I have the Titelist driver but no intention of changing it until the pro suggest to due to swing changes etc. The option to change loft to fit the distance gaps does have a certain appeal. Will see how I feel hitting it.
