@ChristopherV1a1 I really don't notice a dramatic difference in spin with the naked eye but the launch is so much lower than my GBB it is tough to gauge. I was able to find some marketing material from Sellingers Power Golf which may or not be helpful:
Distance Made Faster
We worked with the aerodynamics experts at Boeing to reach a completely new threshold of ball speed in a deeper face. We made this a high head speed design with low drag in a 450cc head, and we did it by pinpointing the size and placement of our re-engineered shape and a lighter Speed Step Crown to save weight and add more ball speed. The LD Pro features a deeper face than the standard model as well as a more neutral CG bias for added forgiveness and stability.
And with lower spin and a more neutral CG bias, XR LD Pro 16 is built for the distance and forgivness that long drivers are looking for
@Ice_Eph29 yeah I have read the marketing on in and looked at the specs. The Driver head is pretty much exactly the same as the Pro version of the driver just with a lower initial loft. I know how I hit the pro, but i was hoping that it would add a little bit of spin. I like the neutral CG and pure distance of the driver head. I'm close to pulling the trigger haha
@PC98 The funniest part is that I use to golf with guys all the time that were very good golfers and played minor league baseball or do long drive contest currently. I was never the longest guy in my 4 somes, and sometimes when i was out I was the short hitter. It's tough to win in golf when you are carrying the ball over 300 yards and still the short stick. I had to get an awesome short game just to win some money back.
@ChristopherV1a1 that philosophy works for me on certain courses including my home course. But on some "target" courses I play with my buddies, that philosophy costs me too much $$. So I've had to tune it back on those courses. But I sure like to bomb it too when I won't get into too much trouble by missing the fairway.
@ToddJ027b that is totally true, but I'm not very good at realing it in. I just have two different hard swings if I want to hit a fairway I swing down on the ball a little like maybe negative 2 or 3* and try to cover the ball a little bit more instead of my maxed out 4* upward angle of attack. I have found that this works really well for me. I think if I get my XR16 Pro head back i'm just going to carry two drivers and have the Epic for Fairway finding, becuase no matter how hard I swing it I can't miss fairways with it, and the XR16 Pro has to be registered with the FAA for a flight plan haha. The funny thing is I love tight courses, because it is an even bigger advantage to hit the ball a long way, because everyone else plays conservative. might loose a stroke on this hole, but the next two holes i'll gain three.
