I just hit the ball major, I didn't say how far it went. I left that up to my skytrack. remember spin rate is a huge contributer to distance... You hit a knuckle ball, it will get out there. 2024rpm with -29 side spin. That's where the distance on that particular drive came from. Also it was only 280 carry.

According to flightscope optimizer, those numbers give a carry of 253, and a total of 281 on hard fairways.

barracuda,
Looked it up.. Your right.. Still... That's a bomb for a slower swing speed. A lot of these guys are talking about just SS and distance. Take flight scope and add another 2000rpm spin to that same shot. You lose 25 yards in total distance just like that. Its all about ball striking. who cares how far it goes. lets say a guy hits it 300 yards then misses a 4' putt; another guy hits 2-150yd shots and makes his 4' putt: same score..

Yes, numbers do look great. I have similar numbers but my ball speed averages 155 with some bombs going up to 163mph, and never hit one over 280 carry. My longest drive of the year according to game golf is 314 total.

Skytrack Is awesome, but on high launch, low spin drives, it can overestimate your distance.

That's awesome... I'm totally going to look at ball speed a lot more and cross reference that to flight scope.. I had never seen that before.. Flight scope optimizer is awesome thanks for inadvertently sharing that...

I don't care what your smash factor and spin rate is, a ss of 100-105 is not going to give you a 280-290 carry.  All things being perfect, it would still be impossible.
Kinda what I was thinking. Mine is 102 area and I've never seen the kinds of #s people here are speaking if, especially 290-300. Must be an awesome seeing groove.

Mine club speed was 102 at a B'stone ball fitting with a ball speed of 133-136 with a carry of  220-229 at sea level per the rep and monitor. Spin was 2045 with the e6 ball.

I used to register 105 on all the monitors. My carry was always 235-240 and a total distance on 260-270. This was somewhat proven when I would play my local course with really soft, slow fairways and I NEVER got it past 240. Then I would go to a more normal course and average 260.

I saw a chart once that said the average 105 swinger was carrying it 240.

That sounds more reasonable than some of these other numbers. Im generally around 110/112 on trackman and Im usually around 27-285 total distance, sometimes Ill get a hold of one and get it to roll out there to 300. I am not the best ball striker so that might be part of it, but hearing guys on here with ~105 SS claiming to carry 280 is a little nuts.

Usually swing speed x 2.5 equals carry distance or very close to it.

I haven't checked on a analyzer in 4-5 years due to ongoing heath issues, last was a Callaway sponsored club trial event, so 110 = 283 according to their analyzer. I'm usually 260 off the tee back then, but I'm usually 220 - 230 total off the tee now. In the North West, that's either plugged or 2 yards bounce back off the turf. But the chart above looks right, I'm probably 92 - 96 right now, and my current 150 club is between a 6 iron and a 7 iron (old specs, 33* - 37*), depending on the overall conditions.

Interesting discussion here...all things being constant, ball speed and spin rate are the variables that affect distance the most.  Mid to upper 170's ball speed with a spin rate of 2000 should carry the ball about 320 and total of 345-350.  Using same percentages a 105 swingspeed should potentially carry the ball 270 with a smash factor of 1.45 and optimum spin.

a 105 swing speed with a smash factor of 1.48 gets you 155 for ball speed.  Optimum spin of 3000 with a launch angle of 17 degrees gets you 261 yards for carry at sea level. At least that's the best I can do with that flightscope optimizer link.

Optimum spin of 3000 and 17 degree launch is very high.  I have a hard time believing that is optimal on that flightscope thing.

I re ran - 2000 is optimum.  I have edited my original post.

1800rpm at 17deg according to TM I think.

Pretty sure I can carry it with my 102 average SS 280 on a 30 foot drop elevation change down wind down slope fairway.  LOL.  I get a decent smash from 1.47 to 1.50 ideally (tend to toe it), and usually can carry it 250 when i strike it well.  I'm not that good at striking my driver but it's become fairly straight and reliable.  To carry 280 you need tour speeds like 110-115 average.  No guy will have a 10 mph difference from trying to hammer it on a radar setup vs on course.  I usually hit it with less force on the course which is why it's 102.  Max I can get 108-110 but that's not always with good results in the process of trying to get there lol.  

Want to carry it 280?  I'd suggest not inflating your numbers but inflating your swing speed another 10-12 mph. Otherwise can see some balls landing in the water or trees when you should have been able to carry it lol.

I'd have to agree with this.  My swingspeed is in the 102-105 range and my total distance (carry +roll) tops out at 275 and is more commonly right around 260-265 and I have a good consistent repeatable swing.

I was at golftown yesterday trying an x shaft, and on the foresight it said 155 mph ballspeed, smash factor set at 1.45, so SS around 105-106, and carry ranging from 255 to 278.

I think i never went over 155 mph at golftown in all the times i tried clubs.

GPS verified i hit multiple 300 yards per round normally, sea level, about 15-20 yards roll no wind, so numbers don't add up.

Maybe i just try to kill it too much in the screen and i lose club head speed ahah

Doesn't make sense, I'm also always 105 on all simulator and IRL on slow fairways i can drive 300 multiple times per round when well struck ahah.

I'd say i carry probably 275-280 on perfect drives but on the optimizer at 105 best carry i got was 266
