I did notice a higher ball flight with my EX10 Beta 16.5, and that was with a non-stock shaft (i purchased a used head off of the bay) and put in a Matrix 8M2 stiff.

Not ballooning at all though.

You could pop that Rombax in the EX10 Beta though...remove the shaft variability.

seems like your shaft weight progression has been going lighter...

maybe Aldila 75 is too light?

You didn't really explain anything. All you said was your launch wasn't right and it balloons? Is it launching to high? to low?

The Rogue Max shaft, regardless of how it is marketed, is not a low spin low launch shaft. Is the shaft tipped at all? most 3 woods depending on your swing speed should be tipped an inch to bring down spin.

Headweight shouldn't have anything to do with it. Possibly hitting to far down on the 3 wood or hitting it to low on the face could be the cause of the ballooning.....

Most likely are hitting it to low on the face to see the ballooning.

I understood that he is fighting too high of a launch.

But Ballooning doesn't usually occur if he is launching to high. Ballooning will usually occur when someone hits it low on the face, or hit down on the ball to much, comes out launching low and climbs to the sky.

Sorry, It was coming out lower to mid launch then it got out to about 150 or so and starts to climb -a lot- in comparison to my 904f w rombax 6w06. Thinking of trying an 80gram d+... I have the 70 in my driver right now and I’m very comfortable w it. The main use of this 3 wood will be off the tee where being able to flight it high or low is main key. I don’t hate my Titleist at all, just fig it was time for a little 10 year technology upgrade and the cult following of TEE is very real.

If your striking it pure and are having balloon trouble, I would definitely look into a different shaft. The Diamana shafts are some of the best fairway shafts out there. The blue board has a cult like following for a fairway shaft.

Thanks for the input guys! Not sure if the shaft is tipped, fairly certain it is just factory standard however tour edge does it. My strike point may have been a little low on a few but it was a ball flight I honestly haven’t seen since I tried the OG big berthas in the late 90s(but in 98 I didn’t know any better about shaft selection other than flex that came in the club off the rack). It sounds like it’s back to the research lab (forum search) on what may work best for me. May end up putting this club on the bst board for a deal and just start over, honestly would prefer a slightly smaller footprint/ deeper ‘looking’ face if I can find one. But I might just be saying that bc I didn’t get the initial results I wanted. Again, I appreciate the feedback, one of these days I’ll be able to post a ‘the bag is set’... hopefully before 2019...

Got it on trackman today for a few swings after fitting my driver... upwards of 4500-5000 rpm, struck well. Maxed out at 255yds and it was falling out of the sky like a pitching wedge. Just bought a d+ 80x from a fellow member. Will report back in a week or two.

Monkeyboy, how much distance are you giving up off the tee compared to your 910 driver?

Color me interested.

Really hard to say - depends alot on quality hits vs less than perfect blows
3 wood comes out more bullet like, I feel like I can work it easier.

On average, on good strikes, I'd say my 3 wood is still roughly 20 yards behind my driver.  The equalizer is that I don't always hit my driver 'pure' (or my 3 wood) therefore, my 3 wood can equal or beat my driver distances at times.  

Let me just say - more tools and variety based on the circumstances.   But it is good knowing that I am not giving up 40 yards on a like for like stroke with driver vs 3 wood.

Proud Beta 15* owner here. Probably have the wrong shaft for my swing speed (max 75 stiff), seeing mostly mid bullets. Would like a little higher flight.

Even with that, its the best fairway Ive ever had.

Finally got a day on the range w the new setup. Not sure where it was in comparison to what’s in my bag now without any yardage marked out there... but, it did feel pretty great. Ball flight was much improved and I was able to hit a few fades off the tee, something I struggled to do w my 904f/rombax setup(its a high draw machine). Off the deck is just cake. It almost makes me want to play all par 5s from the tips the next few rounds just so I have a reason to hit it.

Picked up an EX10 Beta last week, 13* with Max 75 X shaft....I don’t normally play X shafts but this one was working for me.  

This thing is an absolute beast off the tee!  I honestly think it out does my driver.  I played it for 9 Saturday morning and there were three tee balls that put me in positions that my driver might only get on the very best strike and not even sure then.  I didn’t have cause to hit it off the deck that day, but if my experience in the hitting bay is an indicator, it shouldn’t be a problem.  

This is the perfect club for my minimal bag because I get the versatility of something I can hit off the deck without giving up distance off the tee not carrying an actual driver.

At $200 with a $50 rebate it’s a steal too at $150 net brand new.  This might be the best value golf purchase I ever made.
Minimal: TEE EX10 Beta 13 / Miura CB57 4/6/8/P / Miura 55C / Byron DH89 / Mackenzie

Full: Titleist 913 D3 / 909F 15 / 909H 19 / Bridgestone J40 DPCs 4-PW / Vokey 52&56 / Piretti 60 / Piretti Bosa / Jones Utility
