  1. OR, MGS could charge for access to the data. I would gladly pay extra for a MGS "premium membership" for access to the data. But telling me I should fund the whole report is complete stupid bs.
  2. The Cobra LTD Pro (and non-Pro model) keep the COG further back right on the neutral axis than any other driver since 2015. (And probably any before 2015) It is (theoretically) the best combination of low spin and forgiveness in any driver since 2015. We know this because of the MGS Center Of Gravity reports. Unfortunately MGS did not create a report for 2020, and have not given any indication of continuing the reports.
  3. Yeah, see, I'm not the one who decided MGS should have the tag of "Truth Digest". They decided to base their brand on that tag, I didn't force them to do it. They decided to host a forum where readers could voice their opinions, I didn't force them to do it. And they've done a very very good job as far as drivers are concerned, because the MGS COG reports are the only place where the name brand drivers are actually measured to see if their marketing claims are true. Every years report emphasizes how important COG is to the way a driver performs. And the 5 years of data (2015-2019) paint a very illustrating engineering picture as to what is possible and what is not possible in driver creation. So if MGS can't do a 2020 COG report because of the pandemic, that's totally understandable. It would be nice to get some statement that it will return in 2021, or maybe they're just dropping it altogether, but whatever. And if the New Release section is just a regurgitation of the manufacturer's marketing claims, ok fine. I'm just pointing out that PXG is claiming their new BUDGET driver will have a MOI/COG location that is in impossible territory. Every manufacturer has tried for years to get a low/back COG on the neutral axis, and nobody has even come CLOSE to what PXG is claiming to have achieved in their BUDGET driver. Tony called it "intriguing", maybe that's his polite way of calling BS. I guess we'll have to wait for the COG report to learn the truth from the "Truth Digest".
  4. Ok, this explains it for me, thank you. I misread this paragraph as Tony claiming that the new PXG was 'akin" to the Ping 410LST at 5200MOI 1mm below neutral axis. At a glance this looked to me that Tony was saying the PING G410 LST was 1mm below neutral axis (it's almost 4 mm above). Since the PXG MOI/COG claim is a near-impossibility, I made that incorrect claim that Tony was therefore lying for PXG. I was wrong, Tony was NOT lying for PXG. My apologies to Tony Covey, I was wrong on this particular point.
  5. I'm fine with MGS not being able to produce 2020 COG Report because of the pandemic. But when Tony just regurgitates PXGs near-impossible claims, and then lies for the benefit of PXG, I'm going to speak up. 1) PXG makes claim that driver is 5200MOI and COG 1mm below neutral axis. Now that claim, if true, would be groundbreaking. There is no other driver in the past 5 years that has even come CLOSE to that territory on the MOI/COG Neutral Axis chart. 2) Having done all of the COG data and analysis for MGS over the past 5 years, Tony would (should) have noticed this immediately. 3) Toney Covey then LIES to support PXGs claim. Tony says that the PXG driver would have the same MOI/COG as the Ping G410 LST, which is absolutely NOT TRUE. MGS data shows that the Ping G410 LST has a COG almost 4mm ABOVE the neutral axis. Either Tony misread his own data and misstated the comparison to the Ping G410 LST (and is also missing the near-impossibility of the PXG MOI/COG claim), or Tony is intentionally lying for the benefit of PXG.
  6. I'm asking why Tony Covey is currently LYING for PXGs benefit. 1) PXG makes claim that driver is 5200MOI and COG 1mm below neutral axis. Now that claim, if true, would be groundbreaking. There is no other driver in the past 5 years that has even come CLOSE to that territory on the MOI/COG Neutral Axis chart. 2) Having done all of the COG data and analysis for MGS over the past 5 years, Tony would (should) have noticed this immediately. 3) Toney Covey then LIES to support PXGs claim. Tony says that the PXG driver would have the same MOI/COG as the Ping G410 LST, which is absolutely NOT TRUE. MGS data shows that the Ping G410 LST has a COG almost 4mm ABOVE the neutral axis. Either Tony misread his own data and misstated the comparison to the Ping G410 LST (and is also missing the near-impossibility of the PXG MOI/COG claim), or Tony is intentionally lying for the benefit of PXG.
  7. Then why this ? : On the MGS new release article Tony Covey says "By contrast, PXG says its 0211 driver should spec out around 5,200 MOI with a center of gravity about one millimeter below the neutral axis. If I’m starting to lose you, understand that, on paper, that projects to something akin to a higher-launching, lower-spinning PING G410 LST" But that's not true. The MGS COG data shows the Ping G410 LST is 5200 MOI but almost 4mm ABOVE the neutral axis. Either Tony Covey doesn't read his own data or he's lying for the benefit of PXG.
  8. Are you sure ? MGS has had access to all the 2020 models and haven't produced COG data on any of those.
  9. Look at the cumulative data (2015-2019). There is no driver anywhere close to 5200 MOI and 1mm BELOW the neutral axis, even though several manufacturers have tried. Cobra LTD showed the furthest back on the neutral axis you can go is about 4600MOI. Ping and PXG have shown that you can max out MOI at 5600 by putting maximum weight at the very rear of the head, but COG is for sure going to be 2-3mm ABOVE the neutral axis, because that weight itself is above the neutral axis at the very rear of the head. Since the neutral axis starts going into the ground (and going into the ground even quicker with a 10.5* + head), you would need weight below the surface of the ground to get the COG 1mm below the neutral axis at 5200 MOI. If PXG made their face taller, all that does is raise the COG and bring it forward, because the face is the heaviest part of the head.
  10. And here is a perfect example of the why the MGS center-of-gravity reports are important: The new PXG 0211 driver claims to have a COG of 5200 with cog 1mm below the neutral axis. (Jan 7 MGS new release) But if you view the 5 years (2015-2019) of MGS COG data, you can plainly see that 5200MOI and 1mm below the neutral axis is in impossible territory. It would require weight below the surface of the ground ! PXG is flat out lying about their latest driver and Tony Covey is letting them do it on MGS. Tony Covey might as well start accepting advertising $$ from manufacturers, because if he's just going to repeat their marketing lies to us, then he's basically advertising for them for free !

  12. Anybody hear/read anything about a possible 2020 COG report ?
  13. The MGS COG reports DO show where the COG is in relation to the face.
  14. Announcers slobbering over Bryson's driving but he was actually only 7th in driving distance for the week. He won because he was top 3 in strokes gained off the tee, approaches, and around the green (18th in putting). Meaning he won because of a solid all-around game, not because of his driving. (But he's still a huge Trumper, so screw that guy).
