Just a little Father's Day Gift from TaylorMade

Recommended Posts

Fedex dropped this off a little bit ago. Just a little something from TaylorMade.

 

As a total ballsnob it almost pains me to admit that this is a ball I'm really starting to come around on. Probably should spend a bit more time with it. The greenside spin is fantastic.

Have you guys talked about or considered doing a test on golf balls? Would be interesting with all the golf ball talk lately with Snell and others. I'd love to see some numbers ;)

I'm part of the Wilson test group. I can't quantify my numbers but can tell you theres a difference. Personally I think hard data is tough to come by especially with humans. 

Perhaps doing a soft data test would be more appropriate:  Get ten golfers and give them the test. Rank each ball 1-10 on driver distance (that you can use a range finder), driver spin (perhaps launch monitor or the eye ball test, wedge spin (trust me you can tell the difference between a 330RX and Prov1x and putter feel (soft vs hard). Add them up and rank them. This way you have a side by side comparison of spin distance and feel so you can find a group of balls that fits your needs.

For sure. I'm testing the Snell My Tour Ball against my beloved Prov1x and the Srixon Z Star XV. I can feel the difference between them. The Snell feels really good but I'm not generating enough spin on my wedges with it while the Srixon also feels fine with the putter and spins well with the wedges but a little too much spin off the driver. The Pro V1x seems to do all these things right (as of now but that can change). I'm still going to have some fun trying these balls out. 

 

Although I am having fun, nobody does testing quite like MGS. I'd rather get the facts from the experts ;)

Exactly. you don't need compression charts and spin rates if you have good enough peer testing.

      Today, I was greeted with a lovely Taylormade iron box.  I walked into the door and saw the box and immediately asked my wife what it was.  She replied with, "I don't know.  You tell me?"  I started going through my mind about all of the searches I've done recently.  I got scared I pocket purchased a club on accident.  I replied with, "I swear babe.  I haven't bought anything.  Especially with out telling you first."  I opened the box and saw the below beauty sitting there.  I picked up the card and was surprised to see I had been selected based on my response to a post.  If I'm being perfectly honest, I can't even remember submitting anything to win the club.  But none the less, I'm thankful for the opportunity. 
      Based on my initial thoughts of looking down at the club at address, it's nice.  I don't have a feeling of oh shoot I have to be good to game these.  The wide top line provides the confidence.  The top line doesn't seem overly wide though.  I'm a single digit handicapper right now and I could easily see myself gaming an entire bag of these.  RANT INCOMING: (I really don't understand why most golfers want to have Blades.  I get the allure of the sleek nature of the irons, but from a performance standpoint, if you can't put little round wear marks in your irons, I really don't believe blades is best.  I know there can be outliers, but double digit handis definitely shouldn't be gaming blades.  The point of irons isn't to look the best while you're at address.  Save looking good for apparel.  I'd rather have an iron that performs amazing but doesn't look the greatest.  I understand the point of look good feel good though).
      In the coming weeks, I plan on providing my unbiased review of this iron.  I'm currently gaming the Taylormade PSI irons.  We'll see how big of a difference a couple years makes for technology.  I love the feel of the PSI's when I flush them.  It seriously feels like butter when cutting through the ball and the grass.  Coming from the S55's, it's amazing the difference in feel and forgiveness.
