Just got back from the field with my 167 TP Underworld, and I found it to ne unpredictable. I'd try to throw it on a flip to flat and it would turn over early, but when I backed off it would fade out more than I wanted. I found it really tough to hit the sweet spot with. At this point, I'd rather throw my worn FD or Roadrunner, but I'll give it a bit longer before giving up on it.

I'm thinking if anything it may be a useful utility. I hope to dial it in. Come warmer weather, but I agree very difficult to dial in.

I can think of one or two holes where it would work for me, but otherwise it needs too much space on each side. I was hoping for a fairway surgeon, but it's more like a butcher.

Huh, interesting. Thanks for the feedback.

I have to say, I'm having second thoughts about ordering one. The more time I spend with my Rivers, the less necessary it seems. STILL, the thought of an easy turnover fairway driver with Swedish-esque glide is very seductive: I'm still having to anny my Rivers for that, which makes consistency hard. But if the Underworld just leads to a different kind of inconsistency, then maybe it isn't worth it?

Ah, the age old question of whether or not to pull the trigger.

Well, I don't have awesome form, so no doubt I am to blame for some of the performance. But I bet a heavier TP or a VIP would be a bit more stable and perform better for me.

I wish Latitude/Westside would release about a 12 speed turnover driver.
Tried a Bolt? Air Bolts are crazy about being flipped.

Played a round with my 167 TP Underworld....and I found the exact opposite this time. Easy to control, easy to flip to flat and fly straight on with a little fade at the end. The thing just seemed to mesh with my game perfectly. I still need to shake it out a little more and compare to the Patriot. They seem to be overlapping a good bit, with the Patriot winning for distance. All things considered, I am very happy with my Underworld.

It could also be a course vs. field issue for me. I'll take it to the course this week for a full test.

I've got a 172 VIP and 168 TP. Noticeable difference. TP is much more understable. VIP I can throw super straight with light fade at end, or I could get a nice turnover on it.. Obviously this all depends on power and angle of release. But I like both discs. Underworld/Stag/XXX has my Fairway driver slot covered like a King size blanket.

Good to hear. I am thinking of trying a VIP to see if I like it. I wouldn't mind an Scandinavian driver setup.
