Nice post. I think I have been close to each of those phases in the past couple years; probably closer to the last part of just carrying whatever I want; except I have yet to do a good driver beyond fairway very much. I got an Avenger SS but its because its so flippy. I need to learn to throw drivers without such a hyzer angle. Been getting teebird 325-350' and the Avenger-SS for sure has hit 350'+ on a golf line but just havent had the luck with the faster ones.
Good news is, they dont stall out, they just come out on a hyzer, flatten for a little then fade more forward than what used to look like a boomerang.
