Question for Switch throwers:

Mine is a 168 with some decent wear, but nothing crazy. It crushes the flip-to-flat-to-fade line, and also gets a smooth turnover with a small fade back when thrown flat.

I was throwing a 162-gram Inspire alongside it today, and the Inspire definitely turns more, but I didn't find it to be drastically different - or flippy enough, really - to complement the Switch.

So, is there anyone throwing Switches in the 155-159 range that can speak to them being more understable? I'd love to bag fewer molds, so if I can get a Switch that covers the flippy slot that would be huge. Thanks for the insight.

I bag a hot pink 155 switch as one of my main drivers, but I use a 150 class bag. It's amazing how workable the switch is for me. I can still release with a ton of hyzer and high to get it to fade, or I can I can release it flat and let it ride out an anhyzer.

I don't know if that helps out at all, but I absolutely love my 155 switch.

I throw both a 168 and a 158 Switch. I find the 158 turns over gently when thrown flat with a slight fade at the end. When hyzer flipped it comes up and drifts only slightly but it is nearly straight with only minimal fade. The 168 thrown flat has a slight drift with a pronounced fade when thrown flat. When hyzer flipped it is dead straight.

That hook fade on such a neutral fairway driver like the Switch is funky. I like the Servo better, it's a much more versatile fairway driver with very predictable Teebird-esque fade.

I find the opposite. The Crave has a beautiful forward fade with little to no fade at all. I just threw them today on several tunnel shots to huge success -- both a 158 and a 163. The Servo for me has much more of a pronounced yet gentle fade. It does not hook up and dump at all. Moving towards fewer molds in my bag, the Crave, in several weights, will stay for the foreseeable future.

The Servo is the stable-slightly overstable counterpart to the Switch, and I for one really like it in that role. VERY predictable straight-to-fade driver. I don't throw a Crave, so wouldn't know.

How fresh is your Switch? Mine is fairly worn in, and I don't see a "hook fade," but more of forward fade or no fade at all depending on the release. I think Switches need to beat in a little to unlock their potential.

switch is like a slower insanity. some slight fade at max weight/lower speed or great turnovers at lighter weights/powered up.

Oh, would ya guys stop with this "forward fade" nonsense already!

My 3 Switch are pretty worn. They still hookup weird at the end for a understable fairway driver. Everybody says that about the Switch, bro.
