    Tried the Wilson Cortex - Initial Thoughts & Pics

    The Cortex is a driver that can stand with the other drivers. I did a review of the driver cortex review The specs are interesting at not the standard OEM specs. particularly in length and swing weight. I really didn't think the Fuji shaft was going to work in the club because of my previous bias to the construction of other models, thinking they were all the same. Wellllll,.. come to find out Im a bonehead and this white ATMOS is a pretty nice shaft. I only wish Wilson would make this a part of one of their categories. There is a driver for the D and C models. How about putting it in the F category and follow it with a hybrid or FW.

    New Wilson 2018/2019 MBs

    All Steele needs now Is a set of knickers made from the most advanced moisture wicking material and a golf cap that get WiFi and he would match up to the clubs. old meets new. All I can think about is how I would reshaft them with 90 gram shaft or Recoils hahahaha then not hit them any better.
  3. If you mean the screw that actually hold the head to the shaft via the adapter chances are no based on the slightly different torque wrench the OEMS supply. Some are interchangeable but not all. If you mean to put a PING head with a Callaway tip. I would suggest looking at club conex. They have a system that works on most larger companies.

    Driver head weights

    Would be a good resource because if it had that info it surely would have more other interesting factiods too. Keep in mind with todays drivers you may have to ask weather that includes the adjustable tip.
  5. You could meet the needs of most golfers with most makers, To me for top end is more about quality, The Bettinardi folks have established certain quality standards as allowable, Toulon does testing and gather acceptance from professionals as does Scotty.
  6. For top end type putters: to name a few Betts, Scotty Piretti Toulon when getting one just get a fitting to ensure it stays a friend once purchased.

    Changing chafts, lengths and swing weights!

    1) You could have just extended the shafts 1" The KBS imo is a better shaft. 2) Remove the weights and reinstall them. It to ensure the epoxy gets into the space inside and out of the shaft and the hosel. Dirt is not you friend and there is plenty in there if you take it out. 3) Yes the swing weight will go up making the length longer. If you are putting on larger grips it will balance a good portion of the SW added from the length.
  8. How many balls did you guys really hit to make that scene?

    D v D 2

    That's What I said in my video in the review up to date. The D v D is an awesome marketing tool to bring notoriety to the brand. They made serious improvements to the series from the last one for sure. Im also in agreement about the LM numbers seeming a little dodgy. I'm hoping what we didn't see was the serious amount of real testing being done on the models say in comparison to other OEMs to make sure a dud isn't being brought to market. What I haven't heard is that is better than my gamer. Pros and Cons Pro: Wilson is getting new and modern designs. The real weakness for the company was the design on the sole. Con: I can really see putting a driver without an associated FW or Hybrid. If you are going to buy into the model at least fill out the line. Pro: Even if the numbers appear dodgy, at least it appears the judges are using data verse popularity to make decisions Con: NO shots or picture of the top of the drivers, it was the determining factor in removing the Magnus from the line up. SO LETS SEE IT! Pro: the internet will be a blaze with reviews of the clubs and Club vs club review. Wanna bet Rick will have his up the day after.... Overall I like the program for what it does and produces. I hope continues and expands.
  10. I was thinking of the original statement of the using a weight to check Freq. If you used a singular weight it would be expected to go up as you check the flex. The head weight increases as you go down the set. The shaft compensates for that too.
  11. You don't want to make them longer that wouldn't help your game you don't want to make them heavier and rightfully so the much added weight may throw you off as well. Sounds like your stuck putting them together and giving them a go. If the lower end doesn't work then you are better for the experience.

    Shaft removal

    not being a smart a$$ - don't. if you don't have a puller you risk damaging the shaft as you already know, right tool for the right job. There are inexpensive pullers that are not the brightest shiniest tool out there but work. A small invest could save you big $$$$ in new replacements. screw type pullers. maybe even a used one in the Mitchell stable might do the trick. If not look up GW
  13. If you mic'd the shafts above the hosel ? ferrules and came up with 365 chances are the shafts you are looking for are .355 In either case you cold just ream the hosels to accept the 370 and then have a lot of options available to install if he intends on playing the clubs. If its for a memento then staying original is better. Lastly if you are going to replace them then pull the shaft and actually gauge the hosel to ensure you are getting the correct ones and saving a bit of time
  14. Had to go look up the driver. Just my opinion. The tungsten weight in the back is competing with the removable weight. The more weight added could pull back the CoG a bit to make the club feel more lofted and less active while allowing the club to hang a bit open at impact. Where the lighter weight pushed the CoG forward and having the opposite affect. Again I would be guessing the 7g weight is the one designed to be installed for most golfers and off the rack models. Where the other weights tweak for feel, slight directional control changed ETc.
