THIS IS A REPOST FROM ANOTHER THREAD, BUT UEFUL HERE I THINK.
I got to crack open the plastic on my new R11 9 degree X-stiff today at the range
It was a blast, because
1 - the ropes were back on the range.
2 - no one was there, only a few people
3 - wind at my back
4 - I was aiming for the maintenance shed
I started with my normal Driver Superfast 1.0 9.5 degree stiff.
Hit a few nice shots.
Then I hit the 9 degree R11.
I could already feel the massive change in the shaft, and see the flight improving.
Then I tweaked it down to 8* loft
I went from bouncing off the last flag, to bouncing into the fence, to clearing the maint. barn/shed.
I hit it a couple of times, but in the end, we knew I was clearing it.
The kicker was, great control, awesome flight, hands releasing (homework from my lesson 2 fridays back) and just a awesome feeling.
I can't wait to bust it out for my round(s) this weekend.
