    never hit a driver so high, nor so consistantly. All the Best.

    Played with the JPX 825 driver today to test one out. I have never hit a straighter drive than before, distance will improve upon more practice but look and feel just excellent. Bought one after one round, highly recommend.

    Been playing the Mizuno 630 Fast Track driver for a bit over a year now with the Mitsubishi Fubuki shaft. At age 62, and having played the game since I was 12, I’m a traditionalist. In fact, until I put the Mizuno in my bag, I was playing Louisville Golf persimmon drivers, albeit with state of the art graphite shafts. Tried many titanium drivers over the years, but never found anything that was so clearly superior that I was tempted to give up my real woods–their look, sound, feel & workability always surpassed the titanium monstrosities that I tried. With the superb shafts Louisville uses, their length was just a few yards less than the tis and their dispersion was much better. The Mizuno changed my mind. At 440 cc and a very compact shape, its size is acceptable. Its sound, feel, workability and length are remarkable. As many reviewers said, they are not for high handicappers. But for a player who strikes the ball consistently well–something my persimmons required me to do–they yield real benefits. I consistently hit the Mizuno 20 to 25 yards further than I did with my persimmons, the dispersion is about the same and the sound and feel are better than any titanium I ever tried before, even Titleist. Not as sweet as persimmon, but close. These newer Mizunos appear from the photos to have a lot in common with my 630s. If they do in real life, I suspect Mizuno has another fine club on its hands. However, as the comments of others show, they probably won’t sell very well. Therefore, at the end of the year some players will likely be able to purchase them as I did mine at a terrific discount. I also have the same model year strong 3 and 5woods and the 2 & 3 hybrids by Mizuno. They work great for me. Sticking with my Tommy Armour Silver Scot blades for now, however. Tradition, you know.

    I use to have Mizuno woods not anymore. They just don’t stack up to the other companies. I now have the Ping i20 driver, great woods. I love their irons and have the MP-63’s…awesome sticks!

    These look like excellent player’s options. Ordering the 3 wood and driver tout suite! These may not be for 15 + handicaps, but everyone else should definitely hit them on the course before buying anything else! The new 913 driver from Tit are pretty competitive though!

    I just love the old JPX800 3 Wood. Propably the stick I have most confidence with. Can’t wait to test this one also!

Jimmy Walker spotted testing a Titleist prototype driver?

Published

on

As spotted by GolfWRX Forum Member “anthony007,” Jimmy Walker was shown on the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive hitting an unidentified driver at the Warrior Open.

In anthony007’s forum post, along with the photo, he asks the question “Is this a new Driver from Titleist?”

Well, it’s hard to tell from the grainy photo exactly what the driver says on the sole. But then Jimmy Walker himself posted on Twitter saying: “Great catch! Its always fun to test new prototypes and the [Titleist on Tour] guys have given me some cool toys to play with that are incredible – but unfortunately I can’t talk about them yet!”

While the response is a bit cryptic, it does seem that Walker confirms he was indeed testing a Titleist prototype driver.

Spotted: New Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft

Published

on

The official Tour launch of the Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft is this week at the 2018 Forth Worth Invitational at Colonial, and we were able to snap a few photos on the range. MSI stands for millions of pounds per square inch, and basically, it refers to how stiff the fiber is — the higher the number, the greater stiffness it has.

Headed to retail later this summer, according to Aldila, the lower-launching, lower-spinning Rogue Silver 130 MSI is the successor to the Rogue Silver 125 MSI.

Per the company, the new Rogue Silver 130 MSI will feature the same tapered butt-counter-balanced design as the 125. The stronger 130 MSI carbon fiber produces slightly lower torque, however, and is the strongest material in a Rogue shaft to date.

Several Tour pros have already made the switch to the new shaft:

  • Jimmy Walker put the 70 TX in his driver for the first time at The Players. He had been gaming the 80 TX in his fairway wood since the Masters.
  • Kevin Chappell has been playing the 80 TX in both his 3 and 5-woods.
  • Martin Flores has put the 70 TX in his driver
  • Chez Reavie put the 60 TX in his driver at the Masters.

We’ll bring you more details as they become available closer to launch. Click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the new shaft in our forums.
