  1. HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — Jan. 4, 2023 — SRIXON®, a global leader in high quality golf equipment and innovation, announces the launch of the new ZX Mk II Woods. Delivering tour-level performance and revolutionary energy transfer to the tee box, it’s time to discover how your power goes farther with the all-new ZX Mk II Woods. “With ZX Mk II, we’ve built upon the foundation of success with the previous generation,” said Jeff Brunski, Vice President of Research and Development. “Rebound Frame is a unique ball speed system that delivers a pure transfer of energy into the golf ball at impact. The result is an entire driver head that works in unison to deliver an unprecedented rebound effect that delivers maximum ball speed and ultimately, more distance.” The all-new ZX Mk II Woods provide more power where it counts – at impact. A stronger Rebound Frame design with dual flex zones delivers a seamless energy transfer from the clubface through the golf ball. Rebound Frame’s two flex zones work harmoniously to generate enhanced ball speed and distance: Zone 1, the Driver face, deforms inwardly at impact. Zone 2, a ring of flexibility offset from the face, deforms outwardly. When these two zones snap back to shape just after impact, the compounded energy transfer is more powerful and efficient than standard designs. Overall, Rebound Frame adds a 10% larger High COR area to the Driver faces compared to the previous generation. Meanwhile, the ZX Mk II Drivers feature a variable thickness face pattern that is 0.25mm thinner at its center and 0.4mm thicker at the perimeter than last generation. These refinements add even more COR across the face for added ball speed and distance off the tee. The ZX7 Mk II Driver delivers total control, allowing golfers to easily produce the launch conditions needed for maximum workability off the tee. The ZX5 Mk II Driver provides total confidence, with a larger footprint, flattened shape, and a rear weight placed low and deep for drives that launch high and straight. New to this generation, the ZX5 LS Mk II Driver features a forward-placed, adjustable 8g weight that keeps spin low for players seeking to maximize distance above all else. The ZX Mk II Fairway Woods and Hybrids feature similar foundational technologies as the drivers that seek to deliver more ball speed and greater distance from anywhere on the course. The entire line of ZX Mk II Woods offers world-class shafts as standard options with Project X HZRDUS Black Gen 4 and Project X HZRDUS Smoke Red RDX shafts. Key Technologies: Rebound Frame: Rebound Frame’s Dual Flex Zones focus more energy into the golf ball at impact, creating a purer energy transfer that instantaneously increases ball speed and distance on every strike. Star Frame Crown: A complex series of ridges and latticework provides the structural integrity necessary to feature a remarkably thin titanium crown and to place discretionary mass where it best suits each ZX Mk II Driver’s ideal launch and spin characteristics. Variable Thickness Face: An intricate variable thickness pattern expands the high COR area across the entire driver face. These unique ridges enhance high COR from heel to toe by improving how energy reflects into the ball on off-center shots. Cannon Sole: A dynamic, floating weight pad on the Fairway Woods moves the weight right where you want it without reducing COR, optimizing launch while also allowing space for improved face flex and ball speed. Deeper CG: The new shaping and design of the ZX Mk II Hybrids allowed us to position more mass deeper in the clubhead, raising launch for higher, longer shots. A new face radius – spanning from the leading edge to the crown – provides more consistent spin on shots struck high or low, giving you more dependable distance from shot to shot. Retail Information and Pricing Pricing: ZX Mk II Series Drivers ($499.99) ZX Mk II Fairway Woods ($279.99) ZX Mk II Hybrids ($249.99) Lofts: ZX7 Mk II Driver (9.5°, 10.5°), ZX5 Mk II Driver (9.5°, 10.5°), ZX5 LS Mk II Driver (8.5°, 9.5°, 10.5°), ZX Mk II Fairway Woods (13.5°, 15°, 18°, 21°), ZX Mk II Hybrids (17°, 19°, 22°, 25°, 28°) U.S. Retail Launch Date: January 20, 2023

  4. Having just recently upgraded from a GBB driver to my Callaway Razr, I'm now seeing another technology shift to the Taylor Made "Twist Face" design. As my opening statement obviously suggests, I've never been one to chase the latest in technology in my golf equipment (fly-fishing equipment as well). That said, this design/concept is pretty intriguing. If you're playing this driver, what do you think about it?

  12. My gamer driver has been a Cobra Fly-z for a couple of years, tried couple others but nothing was as forgiving and easy to hit the fairway with.... Decided to try a Cobra Extreme 9* set at +1. Three rounds with it and never hit as many fairways. Should have named it 'fairway finder'. I play the same course all the time and know my yardages.... probably 10 yards longer than my Fly-z. I have a TENSEI™ AV Blue 55 with SFW regular shaft that more center strikes than any shaft i have played over the years. I also had this shat in my fly-z and was getting the same center strikes in that head. I'm a senior golfer with a 88 - 92 mph ss. I can hit a draw with it but the ball really wants to go straight. If you are looking for a really forgiving driver, give the Extreme a shot, can be had for great prices now. I will be selling a TENSEI™ AV Blue 55 with SFW stiff shaft that I gave a try but the regular suits my SS. Will post next couple of days if anyone is interested.
  13. Got my new PXG 0811 X Prototype 9 degree yesterday!! Driving range session tonight. Do I like it? To quote DJ "Abso f$#%/ lutely!!" Distance: Played a Taylormade Burner for too long. Really think the face died on me. Dropped from 290's to 270's. Getting older but not that old. Back to 295ish tonight. I'll take it!! Control: Toed and/or heel hits came back to center mostly. Center face hits were solid feeling and sounding. Not sure if I can control shape yet as I want just hitting Wilson range balls. I could shape my draw (natural) and a fade most of the time. I am testing TP5 balls. Playing Thursday so we will see. Fitting: Atl studio. VERY THOROUGH. Ordering: Online at pxg.com. Used the PXG Troops discount. THANK YOU BOB!! Accessories: Head cover magnetized to "hang" on cart. Wrench to adjust head +/- 1.5 degrees loft AND the perimeter weights. This was an easy process. If you are a vet.... the discount is UH-mazing!! Find a studio and ORDER!!
  14. With the recently posted Forum Test for the Sub70 849 Pro Driver I feel now seems like the perfect time to share a Strokes Gained Spreadsheet I have been working on. I will also state upfront that this was made using the bones of another SG spreadsheet and is by no mean was created from scratch by myself. This particular version is set up for Drivers but could be changed to work for any tee club. Everyone can feel free to make a personal copy of the attached Google Sheets file and have at it. Feel free to edit it, use it for personal performance tracking, club testing or whatever you can come up with. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Ew_dxOBtpp7Lp4nT88m-LBLAE2hTvSzEyHfOT8IvOQU/edit?usp=sharing Note: If you are interested in a full SG Spreadsheet shoot me a DM and I can send you what I have. Be warned that the full version is a beast of a spreadsheet though
  15. What is your go to drill when you feel like your ball striking is off? I am new to the game and I want to know what drills the fine folks here in the forum find themselves coming back to when trying to dial in that crisp downward ball then turf angle of attack iron shot? One I have heard of recently that seems like great real vs feel feedback as well is spraying foot powder or dry shampoo on the club face to show where the ball was impacted low/high/heel/toe. What products have you found to perform this task well?
  16. Hello! I have a used SIM Max driver that I've only played for a few months now. It has normal wear and tear. It is fitted with the Ventus Blue Stiff shaft that I recently got re-fitted with a new grip. Unfortunately I don't have the headcover. I'm looking for a right handed stiff G410 LST/Plus driver from Ping. If interested in buying, I'm looking for around $300 but willing to accept offers. Thanks!
  17. What kind of hesitations should I have if considering buying a Driver head with no Serial Number... Seller is listing it as a "prototype" and that's why there is no SA#. Its actual tour issue model ( one I just happened to be fitted for the other day) but this one doesn't have a serial number - does this mean it wasn't approved for tour use or should I be nervous about knock-off?! Also - would it be legal to use in tournaments?! Just happens to be the exact club head I was fitted for and selling for a price I could live with so I would want to take advantage of it's legit! Any thoughts?!
  18. My WITB Setup Driver: TaylorMade SIM Max 9.5 Woods: TaylorMade Rbz Stage2 15° 3W(Next Upgrade) Iron Set: TaylorMade Aeroburner HL 4-PW, AW, SW Wedges: Cleveland RTX Zipcore 52° & Cleveland RTX3 CB 60° Putter: TaylorMade Spider X Hydroblast Planning on upgrading my 3W after spacing out my wedges with Cleveland RTX Zipcore 48° & 56°. No need for 5W or 3H since the one I had was same loft as 4 iron. I'm one of those people that hits irons much better than woods and hybrids. My wedges will be lofted at degrees of 43.5, 48, 52, 56, & 60 after i replace Aeroburner HL AW & SW. Thanks for stopping by to see what's in my bag!!
  19. BOOM! Bombtech's slogan of choice. Sully, their owner and originator set on a journey to produce a driver that not only outperforms the market share of big-brand drivers, but also does so at half the cost. The products they produce are in bold colors and seek to make a statement when you pull them out of their respective covers and tee up. Do they stack up? Keep reading for our first-impressions of the Grenade 3.0. After a little more testing we'll follow-up with some data and final thoughts. **Edited** We finally were able to get some data on the driver and update! Thanks for the wait. Photos and video to come! Who tested the club? For this series we had three testers take a rip at the Grenade 3.0: (1) The Four Putt Prince; (2) Fairway Queen; and, (3) KrolMaks. The Four Putt Prince-- the author and yours truly--is an 18 handicap male that recently picked up golf with an athletic build, high swing speed, and stone-hands around the green. Best known for "accidentally" bombing Par 4s for 300+ over the green, artfully chipping back on, only to end up putting for bogeys. Known weaknesses are unnecessary body movement when trying to do too much, trying to track the ball early, and the occasional wicked slice. The Fairway Queen is exactly that-- a Fairway Queen. She's an athletic 12 handicap female who specializes in finding good terrain regardless of the par, hole, or conditions. The Fairway queen is the type to drive a bunker only to have the ball skip out over the lip, launch skyward and roll for another 20 yards. Her drives are picturesque only punctuated by the smirk and smile when she smokes you from the Men's tees. Her other strengths are chipping for clean putts. Known weaknesses include "rescue" anything clubs and hitting woods off the deck. KrolMaks is the self-proclaimed King of the Course, showing up in the exact same outfit whether its 55 degrees outside or 105 degrees-- LONG pants, starched collar polos, and a cap to doff when he sinks putts with flair. KM is a tall, lanky player whose strengths include extreme focus in sticky situations and sharp reads on greens. Known weaknesses are consistency and tempo of his strokes. KM runs about a 30 handicap with strokes of brilliance followed by shots that make you scratch your head. The unit we tested was a standard weight and length Grenade 3.0 in their "Stiff" Flex shaft. The specs below are taken directly from their site. Our model was a 9*. BombTech 3.0 Driver Club Head Specs Face Material: Titanium Head Weight: 200 grams Face Angle: 1* closed Hosel Depth: 38mm Hosel Diameter: 0.335 inches Size: 450cc Lie: 59* Dexterity: Right Handed BombTech 3.0 Shaft Specs Torque: 3.8 Launch: Mid-High Kick: Mid Weight: Regular 54 G, Stiff 56 Driver Length: 45.75 inches Optics I'll admit, the Grenade 3.0 is not a club for everyone. I personally happen to love neon/lime green and black in just about every combination so the Grenade 3.0 popped to my eyes and brought a smile to my face. Having said that, the club is downright garish to others. On public courses, we had several people come up to us(within 6 feet!) to ask questions after hearing the club-holder tee off (more on this later ). At private clubs, we may have... possibly... potentially... maybe offended the sensibilities of some of the more traditional patrons. (Oops!) One thing you'll notice right away is that the Grenade is a statement-driver. The reflective black bottom is highlighted with points of Green where the weights sit and BOMBTECH GOLF boldly written across the bottom. You'll also find markings that reflect the degrees of the club, and head-size. The crown/top of the driver is a bit less pronounced with a nice soft matte and an alignment "Bombtech" script giving you an indication of the sweet spot. The shaft is neon green and marked with "Bombtech" and "stiff". I'd buy a neon green driver any day of the week, and twice on Sunday if it performs to my standards. My playing companions weren't so keen. Sound and Feel This is likely one of the most commonly griped about sections that lovers and critics of Bombtech debate. The feel and look of the driver at address is clean, and simple. However, it does not share the aggressive styling and feel of other name-brand drivers-- you get what you pay for. The grip itself is a standard/ basic grip that is replicated on all of their clubs, whether they are a driver or a wedge. Fairway Queen and I had no issues with the grip on the club, but KM was not a fan and found that the surface actually discolored/ rubbed off on his hitting glove. Typically I prefer more robust grips (I can palm a basketball) and I found that the grip was less comfortable and did not inspire confidence when attempting to relax and loosen up for a smooth down-swing. Players with large hands or looser grips may find that the club can torque in the hands at unexpected times depending on where the shaft is kicking in the downswing; unfortunately, this can promote mishits. Swinging the club around and through practice swings felt ok, but a bit unpredictable. Many reviews and users have found that the "Stiff" shaft is quite flexy and have had trouble finding the sweet spot in their swing. All three of our playtesters agreed that it was difficult to "feel" where the head was in their swing and to adjust their swing to accommodate for the shaft. All three also found that the driver felt a touch lighter than what they were used to. Personally, I struggled finding a good tempo and swing-speed for this driver but I'm also used to playing with a 76g X-stiff shaft. Holy cow this driver is loud and piercing. You. Will. Draw. Stares. There's no two ways about it and no way to mask the report off the titanium face. One common reaction is the assumption you automatically smashed a drive, and questions of "how far is that?" The other most common reaction is for people to ask if you either broke your driver, or the ball when hitting it. I'll admit, it's amusing the first few times but quickly gets old. Two thumbs down here across the board from our testers. Performance **UPDATED** While Bombtech presents a really nice package and works hard on their advertising, we did not find that the Bombtech Grenade 3.0 outperformed whatever we had in our bag at the time of testing. While I'm sure there's a market of people who enjoy the Grenade 3.0, it didn't work well for me and the numbers proved it. The absolute best shot I was able to hit with the Grenade produced the following results with a Titleist Pro V1: Carry-- 267.4yds Swing Speed-- 104.2mph Ball Speed-- 155.3mph Launch Angle-- 12.7 Smash Factor-- 1.49 Apex-- 101.8ft Spin-- 3170rpm The AVG on-course data I was able to collect with the Grenade was as follows with (5) Bridgestone 330 RX balls: Carry-- 249.1yds Swing Speed-- 107.6mph Ball Speed-- 149.2mph Launch Angle-- 12.0 Smash Factor-- 1.39 Apex-- 91.2ft Spin-- 3522rpm The AVG data from my usual driver taken from a recent practice set (and range balls) removing the highest and lowest statistical outliers is as follows: Carry-- 261.3yds Swing Speed-- 110.7mph Ball Speed-- 155.2mph Launch Angle-- 10.4 Smash Factor-- 1.40 Apex-- 86.9ft Spin-- 3485rpm I struggled mightily with the feel of the shaft and the club-head as I swung. As mentioned above I had to drop my swing-speed to get any sort of consistency with this driver and even then I was snapping off shots far left of center and slicing balls right with the same discomfort. Hitting the fairway was do-able but less than confidence inspiring. Case and point, we've been doing a series of tests on putting aids and ball-markers lately which includes a fair-share of wiping sharpie off club heads-- one of the shots I hit dead center in the hot-zone of the club produced a 250-something carry. I assumed I mis-hit the ball until I went to put the driver head-cover on and noticed the sharpie stripe smack in the middle of the club. On that particular shot I had no feedback of where impact was, or that it was well struck other than I hit the fairway. It was an unsettling feeling. On the other hand, I attempted to toe and heel a series of balls and could quite literally feel the club torque in my hands on some impacts. Forgiveness even in these situations was surprisingly good. One area where I wasn't particularly confident with the readings we received was in the apex flight. While I personally hit to the clouds, I don't think this was accurately reflected in our data. The Grenade Driver felt like it launched excessively high even by my standards, to the point where my playing partners and I struggled to track balls initially off the tee. The driver we received was a 9.5* but I wouldn't be surprised if it were a 10.5* or greater. While I may wow my playing companions with a prodigious slice every now and again, my feeling of inconsistency was mirrored by my testing companions. Shockingly, Fairway Queen failed to find the fairway with this club producing a series of slices that are completely uncharacteristic for her game. KM similarly struggled to find a rhythm, but was able to produce more consistent shots. Did we mention it's loud and obnoxious? Although it really doesn't affect performance of the driver in any way, we noticed that all of the bombtech clubs get phenomenally dirty in no time at all. One session at the range with about 50 balls had me searching for water and my scrub-brush. 18 holes had me wishing I brought some soap with me. I've played with the wedge set only one time on-course to date and the 60 degree legitimately looks like I played in mud. Yet, my other 60*, which I played side-by side for comparison, looks regular and in need of a wipe-down if I'm being generous. **Good News!** It scrubs clean very easily. Value **UPDATED** I struggled quite a bit with this portion of the review. I see the potential for this club in someone's bag, but it's not for me or the crew-- take it with a grain of salt. At the end of the day, Bombtech produced a relatively modern driver that can be found paired with a matched 3-wood and the right promo-code for under $300. From a value standpoint that's incredible. If you evaluate the driver from a... say...$200 standpoint, I'm impressed with what Bombtech has put together. When you back it with what has been (in my experience) great customer support and responsiveness, it's a steal for a weekend golfer who is happy to get out and play the game. Having said that, anyone who is picky about their equipment will struggle with these clubs and will likely end up buying a big-name replacement. For someone with a lower swing-speed the Grenade may be a fairway-blaster. but we felt that at anything 100+ mph, without pro-level understanding of what the club is doing, it's somewhat unpredictable. Conclusion **UPDATED** While the Grenade 3.0 doesn't quite make it into my bag, I don't rightly understand the shade that the club has received from the review community provided you evaluate it objectively. Taken SUBJECTIVELY, the club does not meet the marketing claims that Bombtech boasts. I've heard some back and forth about other claims and manufacturing along the way but have not considered them for the purpose of this review. Objectively speaking you're getting a $200 driver that looks good, sounds terrible, has a solid support team, and is capable of putting up some decent numbers in the right hands. The team and I struggled quite a bit with this driver (yes, there was a 230yd shot, total distance, that looked like a bomb ) but to say that the testing results we received were a complete wash would be a misnomer. We struggled with the shaft on this driver, but it does show some promise from a numbers standpoint. With a swing speed of 104mph and a launch angle of 12.7*, I was able to produce a 267.4y carry which was likely in the 280+ roll range. Smash factor was near 1.5 on that shot. I'll take 280 on a fairway any day. But, the club has to be right for you, no the other way around. With BT, you're going to have to take a chance and bank on the refund program before you can say whether it will work for you or not. Personally I'd consider giving the Grenade 3.0 a shot if I could find more consistency in the stroke and the shaft but until then, I'll keep my Adams! NOTE: I paid for this demo out of pocket to review. I also ran into an issue with the 3-wood that came with the driver where the shaft broke-- I contacted BT and within a day they offered to have a replacement shipped free of charge, no questions asked. Similarly, they have answered all of my questions and inquiries within a day of sending them. It's a good feeling to know that there's a person at the other end of the line. Next Up: Mavrik magic!!
  20. Easily the year's most anticipated article on MGS has dropped on the home page. Check out the results and discuss your thoughts here. https://mygolfspy.com/2021-most-wanted-driver/
  21. Ping G400 driver with 9 degree loft (you can moved it from 8 to 10 degress). Nowadays the driver has a Aldilla Xtorsion 60 grams stiff shaft. In this case the item is used so it has ball marks on the face and the bottom of the driver. The driver do not have any scratch that affects the performance of the driver. Shaft and grips are in really good condition. Driver for everyone with a swing speed between 85 and 100 mph who is looking for a driver with a great MOI providing a good performance on every swing. PRICE: $180
  22. My friend, military veteran, cracked the head of his Taylormade R15 460 10.5° head driver. He asked if I could find him another head, so I am hoping someone has a head they can part with for a reasonable price? I'm in Southern California. He is only asking for the head because he has the original shaft. I'm hoping the MGS community will come to the rescue.
  23. CARLSBAD, Calif. (February 17, 2021) – Building upon the overwhelming momentum and immediate success of the popular TSi2 and TSi3 metals, Titleist introduces the new, comprehensive TSi1 family, engineered for the moderate (less than 90 mph) swing speed player seeking increased club and ball speed with control off the tee and from the fairway. The moderate swing speed player represents approximately 30 percent of all golfers making the TSi1 metals an important offering to maximize their performance potential. The new TSi1 drivers, fairway metals and hybrids will be available for fittings beginning February 17 and in golf shops on February 26. TSi1 DRIVER: “With the new TSi1 driver, we focused on how to deliver even more speed than we did with the original TS1 for that player,” said Stephanie Luttrell, Titleist Director of Metalwood Development. “We maintained the launch, spin and draw bias, while successfully accomplishing our goal of increased club and ball speed with the combination of new aerodynamic head shaping, higher inertia and moving the CG closer to face center.” An Ultra-Lightweight 460cc driver, the TSi1 is almost 40g lighter than standard drivers. It is high launching with mid spin and is the most draw biased Titleist driver through CG positioning. By reshaping the head, engineers were able to move the CG closer to face center, which results in more ball speed versus the original TS1. “It's important that we look at the overall weight of the driver,” said Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing. “For this audience, the moderate speed player, they are going to perform better with a lower overall club weight. Secondly, it has all of the attributes of the TSi2 and TSi3 in terms of material, aerodynamics, and all of the CG locations, but we're doing it with a lighter weight head. The combination really gives that total performance to the player for whom it was developed.” Like the TSi2, TSi3 and TSi4 drivers, the TSi1 also features the ATI 425 Aerospace Titanium Face. Faster in the air and faster at impact, all Titleist TSi drivers push the boundaries of speed through advanced engineering and material breakthroughs. This new face construction has previously never been used in golf and helps produce the longest, straightest, best-looking, and best-sounding Titleist drivers ever. Made by a single foundry in Pittsburgh, ATI 425 was initially developed for ballistic armor applications and has since been used in many aerospace and commercial aircraft solutions, including jet engines and NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander. Titleist is the only company in golf that uses this material. “What I am most excited about, is the fact that this product absolutely takes Titleist speed to another level for the moderate speed player,” said Luttrell. “Not only does it deliver incredible trajectory, but it also maximizes the ball speed. And with its lightweight configuration, all those golfers are going to experience greater consistency, as well as maximizing their club speed.” TSi1 FAIRWAY METALS: “One of the things that we heard pretty regularly when we launched TS1, was golfers really liked it and they wanted a fairway to go with it,” said Talge. “We know this moderate swing speed player is a sweeper and needs help with launch, so we developed a low profile set of TSi1 fairway metals. Some of the moderate swing golfers we tested said they could never even play a fairway before they hit the new TSi1. They picked up speed, they picked up launch angle, and the mid-spin design kept the ball in the air longer.” The TSi1 fairway metals are a true lightweight setup – almost 50 grams lighter than standard fairway metals. This was accomplished by taking 10 grams of weight out of the head while maintaining the MOI at the same level as the TSi2 fairways. To accomplish that, the CG depth is positioned further back which contributes to higher launch. Like the driver, lightening up the overall weight for fairway metals delivers the club speed, brings more ball speed, and gives that player a lot more playability and consistency. “We have seen many tour players put higher lofted fairway metals, especially 7-woods, in the bag since the introduction of the TSi line,” said Talge. “While the TSi1 is not a tour product, the interest in them by players at the highest level has exposed an opportunity to expand to the moderate speed player and offer higher lofted fairways (15º, 18º, 21º, 23º), which we have never done before.” The TSi1 features an Aldila Ascent 40g lightweight shaft offering, a lightweight Golf Pride grip, and the head is 10g lighter. By taking 40 to 50 grams out of the overall club weight, the TSi1 is a perfect fairway metal option for slow to moderate swing speed golfers. TSi1 HYBRIDS: “The TSi hybrid is a totally new shape for Titleist,” said Talge. “This is the perfect complement to the lightweight TSi drivers and fairways. It has a bigger sole, the highest MOI, and is the most forgiving of any hybrid we’ve ever made. It has an extremely low CG and is 20 grams lighter than a standard hybrid.” The larger profile, ‘wood-type’ TSi1 hybrids are engineered to deliver high launch and mid-spin, and feature a 455 Carpenter Steel Forged Face. It also has a deeper CG for high MOI and exceptional stability and speed across the face. The Titleist TSi1 hybrids range in lofts from 20º to 29º. In testing, moderate swing speed players preferred it, especially when they were able to generate more club speed and more distance. TSi1 ULTRA-LIGHTWEIGHT CONFIGURATION: From clubhead to grip, TSi1 metals have been strategically engineered and weighted to deliver maximum launch and distance at moderate swing speeds. By bringing TSi technology into this extremely lightweight configuration and adding a slight draw bias, Titleist been able to produce dramatic benefits for this group of players. “Anytime you can give someone more clubhead speed, the ability for them to generate ball speed is there,” concluded Luttrell. “What separates TSi1 from other competitive lightweight metals is that we haven’t had to make sacrifices, particularly with MOI and adjustability. Everything about TSi1 - from the technology package, to the tour-inspired looks, to sound and feel – delivers on the promise of Titleist Speed for this family of metals.” TSi1 TECHNOLOGY & PERFORMANCE • Ultra-Thin Titanium Crown on TSi1 Driver. The thinnest cast titanium crown in the game allows weight to be redistributed for optimal driver performance at moderate swing speeds. • Streamlined Shapes. The aerodynamic designs reduce drag, allowing golfers to swing even faster for increased clubhead speed and more distance. • Optimized Weight Distribution. TSi1’s deep CG locations have been optimized to generate the launch and spin needed by moderate speed players to carry the ball farther, while maximizing off-center ball speed through high MOI properties. • Industry-leading adjustability. Titleist’s patented SureFit Hosel, featuring 16 independent loft and lie settings, provides additional ball flight optimization through precision fitting.

The new XXIO Prime officially launches in North America on February 12, 2021. “It’s safe to say that the new XXIO Prime Woods and Irons are the most advanced set of clubs ever developed for moderate-to-slow swing-speed players,” said Jeff Brunski, Vice President of Research and Development. “From the exotic materials and construction to the ultra-lightweight shafts featuring our Weight Plus counter-weighting technology, every detail in the new XXIO Prime has been engineered to add distance and accuracy – specifically for players who have lost some yards over the years. XXIO Prime is truly different and special.” Experience the difference of ultra-lightweight woods and irons with the all-new XXIO Prime. Easy to swing shafts and revolutionary counterbalanced construction elevate performance for moderate swing speed players. Enjoy improved distance, increased accuracy, and less strain with our most powerful XXIO Prime yet. Key Technologies: Rebound Frame: Featured on the new Prime Driver, Rebound Frame is an alternating pattern of stiff and flexible zones that focuses more of your impact energy into the golf ball. It increases ball speed and distance on every drive, especially center-face impacts. Weight Plus: Weight Plus is a counterbalancing technology that places weights in the end of each shaft, located behind your hands as you grip the club. That grip weight helps push the club head up through your backswing for a more consistent top of swing position. And as you begin the downswing, the weight brings your hands into position, keeping your arms closer to your body for a squarer face at impact. Super-TIX PLUS Titanium Face: Each XXIO Prime Driver, Fairway Wood, and Iron face is made from Super-TIX PLUS Titanium, an incredibly strong yet lightweight alloy that adds speed to all your shots.

  25. So I spent a good 45 minutes or so yesterday on a driving hole of our course, just hitting driver to get a feel for my new G30. But I came away with a question. On several what I feel were well struck shots, the tee flipped and landed 5 to 10 yards BEHIND me and by behind i mean directly behind my aim line so say if the tee was the middle of clock face it landed at 6 O'clock. Then on several again well struck shots, it landed as much as 12 yards in FRONT of me or 12 O'clock. There were a couple that landed out to the side (say 2 o'clock) So does anyone know what makes it land at 6 vs 12 O'clock? Is one over the other an indication of a better swing or angle of attack. I pretty much put the tee in the same length each time, with just about half the ball above the club-face at address.
