After reading the article, IMO, the first kiss of death came when they sold out to AMF. That company seems to have a knack for ruining or almost ruining storied names from the past. They almost completely killed Harley Davidson.
Currently, I've been trying out the Wilson Staff Triad, Top Flite Gamer, Maxfli Tour, & MG Golf c4 senior. I've been using the Wilson Staff Fifty Elite for the last 7 years. It's been difficult to get away from. It does everything I need it to do.
