To remove flashing, I like to use some 150 grit on a sanding block. Go slow - just a little at a time.

Not a lot of putters much more shallow than the rhyno - maybe the thumbtrak is throwing you?

The zone indeed is nice and shallow, with a high shoulder/PLH that just feels right in the hand.

Yeah I like DX teebs - with lower armspeed and a little wear they turn into laser straight fairways. I have found that upper 160s DX teebs consistently fly further than their premium plastic...

Definitely pick up a DX teebird. They fly really nice, longer than star or champ, and as they wear they lose their fade and become laser beams. Once you wear the fade away, then pickup a star teeb....

Sounds like the saint is a popular choice.

Control drivers

I notice that the vast majority of pros tend to rely on a fast control driver for distance, a star destroyer being the most common.

I have indeed found that my DX teebs lose LSS first and very gradually lose HSS. I have not beat in my premium teebs enough to say for sure how they wear! :popcorn:

Followup on my recommendation post earlier - I expect to try a KC roc and a DX in 176+.



All else held equal, what is more desirable and why - flatter vs domier, and low PLH vs high PLH?
