  1. I definitely do. Just like if I were at the gym!
  2. Just to update, my putter did arrive today. Very excited to give it a good test soon. Didn't expect it to be blue though
  3. The suspense is killing me!
  4. Anyone receive anything yet? I received an email from Harry on 1/3 saying it would ship out "soon" but nothing's arrived yet.

    MGS Forum Badge Catalog

    I'd like the donor tag plus the USA and the "Broke 70" tag.

    2019 Srixon Z-Star & Z-Star XV Golf Balls

    This is actually perfect because I always felt they made the ZStar too soft and the XV too hard in recent years.
  7. Hi All, I'm selling a brand new in plastic Cobra King F9 Speedback driver. This was ordered directly from Cobra. Loft is 9* with the Project X HZRDUS Smoke 6.0 shaft. Club was ordered at +1" to allow for tipping. Comes with Golf Pride Tour Velvet grip with the Cobra Connect Arccos chip installed. SOLD Let me know if you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them. Thanks for looking!
  8. I got an email from Harry back on 1/3 but haven't heard or seen any evidence that anything has been shipped yet. Wasn't sure if I was going to receive a tracking number or it would just randomly appear one day at the house. Also, how do I get one of those "donor" tags under my profile?
  9. I believe Taylormade is skipping the show this year.
  10. Surprising to me was he got 160.9 ballspeed out of the Wilson Cortex at 111mph club speed and only 158.3 on the TM w/ the same swing speed. The Cortex was 2.6mph faster off the face (on average, assuming multiple face impact locations). He still hit the TM a little further but due to launch and spin and not the ballspeed that TM claims would increase.
  11. Has anyone been contacted yet about the raffle prizes? I sent Harry an email on 12/27 but never got any reply or confirmation.
  12. This phrase that everyone keeps using when they post reviews of the club including all of the YouTube reviewers; "The best driver Wilson has ever produced". Let's break that saying down in terms of the auto industry. Let's say KIA comes out with a super luxury vehicle and it's "The best KIA vehicle that they've ever built" and they want to charge $85,000+ for it and let's say it performs similar to what you can get with the main players in the luxury market. Even if it was similar, would anyone with that kind of money to spend even give the KIA a second look when it's in the same price range as Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, Audi, etc? Same problem with the Wilson. If someone has premium driver money to spend, why would they choose a Wilson driver over the main players such as Ping, Callaway, TM, Titleist, etc? Especially when those players have a HUGE selection of shafts and demo heads to hit and get custom fit into. Now if the Wilson had the same performance as the big names and came in at a lower price point of say $350-$399, it might entice more people who look for better value for money and they might overlook the lack of shafts and fitting options. Back to the car analogy. Hyundai came out with the luxury car Genesis and it was a fantastic vehicle that competed with the top luxury vehicles but cost less. They still couldn't sell them as well due to the car having a Hyundai badge so they broke the luxury brand off and created a new luxury brand specifically called Genesis. This allowed them to differentiate the nicer product from the cheaper value that Hyundai provided. If Wilson could do something similar and create an upper tier brand that ONLY had the better equipment then they could start to command the higher price points as people would recognize this as the "luxury" brand. As others have mentioned they have lost their way with the Wilson vs. Wilson Staff branding and they've slapped Wilson or Wilson Staff on whatever product they feel like using it on which doesn't let the consumer know if what they are using is box set quality or better.
  13. Every review on youtube so far has had 2-4 mph less ballspeed, same with the C300.
  14. Ballspeed numbers are slower than just about anything else on the market and the 2019 drivers are looking to be hot off the face again this year!
