For me I could not control the alpha- worst stock shaft ever. I did like the sound and feel bit didn't want to go shaft hunting. I think off the rack the xh2 is a better driver than the berthas.

I like the XHot Pro driver with the Aldila ATX Tour Green shaft the best out of the Callaway drivers.

I tried the X2Hot and it felt dead to me, have you tried the regular Big Bertha?

..... until 915 comes out - or if Callaway releases an alpha ver2.

I picked up a shaft for my driver and its sitting in a spare bag in the basement
was thinking i should BST it, but was thinking the same above
the alpha ver 2.0 I'm betting will be quite a bit better
will test the 915 for sure

but the Cobra is actually really good for me ..... its crazy

Neither of the brain trust liked the G30?  Absolutely love mine on the range well see how the course goes today.  I loved the G25 on the range too but was never in love with it on the course.

I don't think G30 is loud unless you hit it next to SLDR.  I kill my 430 on the course but not as good as G30 on the range.... We'll see...

I don't know of anyone that thinks it's not loud.  Almost same numbers as g25 too, so not for me. Sldr buried the g30, as did a few others.

Still have the Kiyoshi and love it with my G25.  Actually after one round (whatever that is worth), I'm liking the Ping Tour 65X shaft.  Probably gonna stick with the stock setup for a while.  Second club championship match this weekend, so hopefully it works out.

Well the g30 driver is ear splitting loud and no better than the g25 so back to sldr.

I agree. I was very disappointed in G30 sound and feel.

I've playing AP2 and indigo 52 wedge for awhile. Recently completed w 56 and 60 indigo. First hit out of bunker and scuffed my 60. Almost cried. They are so pretty I might buy 54 and 58 just to have all.

I  Michael Jordan dunked my "scuffed" indigo 60 out of a green side bunker a few holes later so I forgave it for its blemish!

(I still think I need a backup set of S55 tho just to scratch that itch.)

Won my semi final CC match with the G30 driver...but drove it poorly.  GJ, i think i saw in Pure's thread that you are now playing a Bio Cell...is it the pro or non pro?  Just curious what your thoughts are on the Cobra?

Congrats on the win. I had all 3 but for me prefer the +. It's just right in terms of spin , it's as long as my sldr but sounds better and is more forgiving. Firmly in the bag until the 915 is released.

Im more curious if your G30 still sounds like heck with a Speeder in it.  Because it requires you to apologize to your playing partners with the stock shaft.

The ear-splitting sound is the sonic boom from the increased clubhead speed brought about by the reduction in induced drag.  It's true.  I saw a Bubba video about it on Ping's website...

New Callaway sticks. Good. This thread needs a little wind. How are they?

Im more curious if your G30 still sounds like heck with a Speeder in it.  Because it requires you to apologize to your playing partners with the stock shaft.

The ear-splitting sound is the sonic boom from the increased clubhead speed brought about by the reduction in induced drag.  It's true.  I saw a Bubba video about it on Ping's website...

What's the MOI of that critter.  I bet I could square it to my path easier than I can the G25 or G30.

Sound is much better. Sound and feel aside, I was hitting the I25 better than I have hit G30 (using same speeder shaft).  A few more rounds with G30 and if no improvement I'm heading back to I25 (until 915)
