Upgraded my Titleist 915F2 3W to a new 917F2 3W. Got tired of having to clean out the Active Recoil Channel. The 917 channel is closed, so can't clog up with grass and mud. Otherwise, very similar clubs.

Active Recoil Channel sounds like some pretty serious tech, not like something to dispense with just because you don't feel like cleaning it. I wonder how closely marketing and r&d depts work together. :onfire

Pulled the trigger after a range session a few weeks ago, working with various shafts, and ordered a new Titleist TS2 Driver with Tensei Blue 55 Stiff Shaft. Arrives next week. Elbow better heal quickly.

The wife has been wanting a new fan in my golf room. Looks like thanks to my lunch break she'll get her wish.

WHAT HAPPEN
So when I swing my mat slides forward a fraction of an inch. Typically the light is directly above my head (9 to 10 feet off the ground) which makes it way out of the swing arc. But I wasn't paying attention, and over the last 500-1000 swings the mat kept moving forward w/o me adjusting it.

Then yesterday I was "goofing" around trying to hit various shot shapes. I tried to hit a big high fade where my follow through is more vertical and high. Well I clipped it with my 6i and it exploded.

So I learned that before each session I need to adjust the mat.

Don't attempt a fade while indoors, thought that was common knowledge.

Everybody knows that. (Well obviously not one guy in VA, but everyone else.) Never attempt a fade indoors. Ever. God, how dumb. :lolz

Okay, so, as just wrote on the DL thread, I got to play with my new TS driver today, even though I am not healed yet. On the plus side, I definitely picked up yardage with the new purchase, even with the ailing elbow and not having the club dialed in yet. I went down in loft from 10.5* with my 917 to 9.5* in the new TS, but hit the ball higher. I got the Tensei 55 Blue, stiff flex in the TS, which is quite similar in specs and characteristics to the Diamana Blue 60 stiff flex I was playing in the 917D2. But the Tensei 55 is lighter and a 1/2 inch longer overall. Though I hit a few with a nice boring trajectory, which is what I like, most were higher than I prefer. I'll have to play around with it a bit more. Overall, though, the new TS is clearly giving me good distance on all strikes, even in the 45 degree temps. It is at LEAST as long as my D2, even when the strike isn't dead center or the ballflight is higher than I like. I had no short drives, though I had some less-than-perfect strikes. I think I am going to like this. My driver swing after my 10 day layoff was not exactly as sharp as it had been before the injury. So once I feel healed and back in sync again, I really think this driver will be consistently longer than my 917 if today is any indication with a mere so-so swing.
