I am pretty sure I have some form issues with my forehand, but I can throw drivers 350' on the reg, and up to probably 380' with the right conditions. I am thinking for MidRange, I am going to want something Overstable. I feel like my release isn't always clean just because of the deeper rim, but I am open to any suggestions???

*Side note: I get jealous watching Mike C flick his mids... Are the rest of you attempting to flick mids as successfully as him, and so effortlessly?


when I carried them, I really liked an Opto Pain for mid range forehand shots. Not so overstable it can't be worked on different lines, but overstable enough to not flip on a slightly dirty release too.

Also, FWIW, when trying to throw hard forehands I've had best success with the P-P1. The floppy nature of the plastic just absorbs OAT and it flies great regardless. Wonder where I could get a similarly floppy mid... =)

I think I envy Brodie's forehand more than any aspect of any other player. And I know that there are better FH guys around than Brodie.

Seriously, if I had that dude's forehand I wouldn't play with anything else than an Ultra-Star.
