If you've hit TM RAC MB TP Smokes before, how do the Nike blades compare? Which one did you find to be more forgiving? Were the distances about the same?
Yes I've gamed the MB Smokes for about 3-4 months before getting rid of them. Compared to the VR's they are much harsher feeling (could have somehing to do w/ the Rifle Flighted 6.0's) but all around even mis-hits were harsher. They do look good, the VR's have a more classic look to them and are easier to hit than they look. Forgiveness wise, I'd say neither are that forgiving.. but in blade terms the VR's hold their distances better on off center hits.. they also dont feel as harsh. The Smokes are nice.. but the VR's are plain and simple one of the nicest blades I've ever hit. I tested them against the 33,37,67 and Miura TE blades.. they won.. I'd suggest just hitting them side by side.. on the course if possible.. you'll know immediately which one you like better

Tai, I'm writing this on my Nokia E71, so spelling is off....but I had to react to your comment about your TM sTUFF. WHY do you want to get rid of the best driver and woods in the world...surely if the Burner stuff is going, TM Tp FCT stuff must take over and not anothrer brand
What will you bag if not TM DRIVER and woods
Not Nike dymo stuff or Titty stuff
I was shocked as well.. needless to say my 09 BTP to this day is one of the best drivers I've hit. That said, my new one (Diamana just installed) gave me a 183 ballspeed.. my best ever.. good for good was longer than my 09 BTP.. and looks better.. so, I pulled the trigger on it.
It's the Cobra S-91 Pro S, and I got the matching 3 wood (Redboard 83x Flowerband is going in that). My hybrid is now a 909H w/ Matrix Altus X which has been tweaked again by Nick at Golf Coast. I'll post pics when everything is done.. but long story short, this setup beat out my TM on performance, and also looks
The reason I switched was i was hooking my hybrid really bad and my 3 wood too.. and then I hit my friends S9-1 Pro at the range and was captivated by its looks and the fact i was killing it! Then once the driver had better #'s than my 09 BTP, the choice was easier than expected..
