I was able to hit 425' max with Destroyers and Terns as of recent. However, I am not wanting to start off with any wide rimmed drivers.
Here's what I have planned so far.
Champ Orc - I have a friend possibly trading with me for one that's apparently very overstable
S PD - Overstable slot
Valk - Max distance...what's better here, Champ or Star? Flat or domey?
Leopard - understable and fairway duties. PD can cover OS fairway duties.
Roc - Thinking of grabbing a few KC's and DX to rotate
Putters - this is where I could use some help. I am tempted to get the Vibrams since they won't wear down over time, and I fear that any other base plastic in 150 class will wear down really fast. I want a slightly overstable mold and a stable (straight) mold. I feel competent with my forehand game so I don't necessarily need an understable mold.
DX Rhyno (are they all domey?)
I use both the PD and the Valkyrie as my primary drivers. I mainly use Champ Valkyries, since I bought 3 at once when I got them, and only have 1 Star, which I haven't given a fair shake yet. It seemed that the Star Valk had a harsher fade and wasn't as long as my Champs, but that is my results. Teebirds and Leopards also were a staple on wooded courses. I seem to prefer PD and Teebirds in Star and Valks and Leopards in Champ, but also have Star. The Star Leo seemed more understable to me at times.
I keep toying with the idea of getting a Japan Open Roc 3 in 150. Mids in 150 are the last I am trying. I picked up a couple DX Rocs, and I have Obex and Ibex in upper 150's, but only messed with them for a week or so, not enough to give a good opinion on them other than they take tree hits well. (Way to attached to my Tangent/Tensor combo). Will try them out again, as i am also taking a break right now, resting my achy shoulder.
I had no complaints with my 153 Ridge/Summit combo, very durable. I handpicked a 150 DX Rhyno, the flattest of the ones I saw, and loved it. I also got one of the few 150 class Anodes out there, good results with it to. I would love to see a 150 Ion to, just to get 150 MVP bag going.
