i really like WilsonStaff, and i hope they sell a million of them....but at $450, i believe that makes it the most expensive major brand driver (not counting pxg because you cant walk into most stores and get those)

Wilson has the D300 coming out soon. They will choose the Pivot (I hate that name) because it will be the player driver to replace the FG tour. Plus one Harrington endorsed that one, it was a done deal in my mind. I just don't see the consumer looking at a white or silver stripe running down the crown of their driver.

My Pro Shop already has the display for the winner and ordered a dozen of the winner.  We'll get to see them soon....Nov 22nd is just next week.  My guess is the Pivot will win.

Hi All, My name is Jon. I work for EOS 3D printing and we supported Wilson in Driver vs Driver this year. We provided the 3D printed Ti clubs hit by the tour pros. 

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks Walker. I saw the EOS process in yesterday’s episode. It’s simply amazing that you can create a drivable Head with a printer.

Couple of questions:

1. Since the moveable weighting Systems weren’t functional, were they set to any particular setting prior to printing?

2. Was there any weighting or other adjustments after printing to optimize the drivers?

3. Were he players asked to hold back any? The swing speeds shown during the episodes seemed low.

4. Maybe I missed it, but how long did it take to print the heads?

I thought they said that turnaround is 24-48 hours.

Thanks. One thing to make clear? The goal of this project was to make an "iteration 1" prototype. This is a minimal viable product to get a benchmark for how each design performs. We did not try to build a late stage prototype or a retail grade product. We could have done that, but it was not the purpose. If you wondered why the Trackman numbers seemed low, this is why.

1. Wilson / The Contestant would have made those choices. We worked off CAD files with static weight chips. I would assume everything was set to "neutral".

2. Not really. Wilson had to machine out the ID of the hosel to set the clubs up for proper mounting. Per my earlier comments, this was designed to be a minimal viable product and finished product. There's that we could have done if it was required, but it didn't make sense for the sequence of the show and where we were featured. 

3. No. I am Jon and was featured on TV for this episode. Although they only showed us at the lab, I was at the AZ shoot. No one held back. It was quite the opposite, I think they would have gotten a kick out of fracturing the face on one of our clubs. If any of the trackman numbers looked wonky, it's because this was just an early stage prototype. 

4. I actually forgot the exact time, haha. I think we built 4 clubs at a time and that build took 20 hours? If we had used a bigger model machine, we could have probably done 6 at once. After the build, the parts needed to be cut off the building plate, machined (drilled) for the shaft, and that was basically it. A key thing to note is that we built these as 1 piece. There was NOT a separate crown, sole, and face like a production club. The one exception was the model with the composite crown. We separately 3D printed a Nylon / Composite hybrid material for a crown and glued it on. The face, sole, and mounting area for the crown were built as a unibody.

Anyway to merge this with the DVD season 2 thread ?? That way we can discuss this info in the same place. 

I tried to find that on the site and could not. I would appreciate that too!!! 

Could you send me a link to that thread?

Finally getting a chance to watch the episode with Adam and Sam. Both these guys hit the driver pretty darn good.  Fun format and show. It's about time the Nerd's behind the scene get a crack at some big prize money. 🙂
