So are you suggestion Richie that modern drivers have the sweetspot towards the toe where the horizontal bulge is opening the face back up? It makes sense, but sounds like a lot of compensations going on. My 'modern' driver is still 10 years old and has the sweetspot at marked in the centre of the face. I'm still searching for where it really is though.

(Ok Captain, stop thinking about the bulge.)

I presume this is about a pure CF motion, and if so, is this taking into account any toe flattening that may occur wherin the club actually becomes shorter @ impact? :)


No, this is just talking about pure physics independent of any action. I agree a CF motion will compensate for the upright lies, but I don't care about that mob. :D

The sweetspot on titanium drivers is up towards the crown of the head, off towards the toe a bit. I'd have to see what the driver is, but I think it's been that way with titanium almost since the beginning.

I agree, lots of compensations going on...but I think most of us agree here that titanium isn't the best if you want to improve the precision of your golf swing and it's mostly used because of the distance advantage it has.

For sure....and if you ever do run into extra time on your hands and don't know how to fill it wisely, we have a spot for you at the range. Although you do understand that you'll have to climb the corporate range ladder and pay your dues like the rest of us. ;) :lol:

Last night, the sushi chef told me to look into Maruman golf clubs.
After some research, there are only two things you need to know...

First

Second, the company, in addition to making golf clubs, also sells supplements.
One of them is called Relax Paipo...

The product description reads:
"Relieves stress during a traffic jam or commuting, (and) when feeling nervous on the first tee."

I'm all in.
Accelerate forever!

Paipo is a cigarette substitute.

I've seen Maruman irons and persimmons on ebay that looked good. At the end of the month I hope to find some at used shops in Tokyo.
