I would have to say Pivot. More playerish. That new D300 will be the driver for the masses. I don't think that stripe will sell on the Triton.

And it's the Triton!!!  Eric Sillies seems like a pretty good guy and I'm happy for him.

 

And did you notice -- NO GROOVES ON THE FACE - vertical or horizontal...

Nice to see a celebrity on the forums, well done MBP!

 

As for the finale...Kind of a let down.  It was just an hour long recap with a couple of interviews.  While I still think it was a pretty cool idea and something new for the industry, it was a let down for me as a whole for the series.

 

I wanted to see more of the design and fabrication process.  I also wanted to see more of the testing and #datacratic numbers instead of a few celebrities hitting it on the range and spouting numbers with 30-40 yards of roll.  As a whole I don't think it really moved the needle much for me wanting to try out the driver.

I agree. I at least wanted to see what was under the Pivot sole plate and how many weights were available in it.

      Like your typical beginner golfer, I selected my first balls based on the fact that I was likely to lose a lot of them. So for my first round I grabbed 2 boxes of Nitro distance balls at Wally World for 5 bucks per dozen. Yup, lost most of ‘em. But at least I realized pretty quickly that balls sure do make a difference. So I tested several balls as I went along, as my game improved, so did my ball selection until I finally ended up choosing the Srixon Z Star, which is my current gamer, and has been since the middle of last year.
       
      Enter the new Wilson Staff Duo Soft Spin (SSP), promising extra spin around the green and a super soft feel. As a die hard Wilson Staff fan (see my signature for the proof) I just had to give these balls a shot. They are a 3 piece ball with an Ionomer cover.
       
      My initial thoughts are all positive, I think Wilson Staff has created a fantastic ball at a great price point. However, they definitely aren't for everyone, and here's why:
       
      That super soft feel part, holy moly. The balls are only 40 compression, so when you hit ‘em good, you definitely get a rubbery feedback, so if you don't like that sort of a feel, you'll hate these balls. I just so happen to like it; and around the greens it actually provides me with great feedback and improves my touch, but we'll get to that in a sec.
       
      Off the tee on hole 1 at the oaks in Somersworth NH, I hit a 253 yard bomb with my 3 wood. The ball went dead straight over the bunkers that cross the fairway, the ball went high enough that my friends and I lost it in the sky and never saw it down. But as I pulled up I saw that my ball had almost rolled through the fairway but stopped about a foot short, leaving me a lob wedge into the par 4 for my second. Don't get too excited, I ended up 3 putting for a bogie. But this leads me well into the next part.
       
      On approach shots, I had no trouble getting the ball to stop quickly on a course that in notorious for ridiculously fast greens. On hole 11, a par 5 I had another lob wedge into a green with the pin at the front of the green. I caught the fringe and the ball checked up less than a foot from the pin for a tap in birdie.
       
      The ball provided plenty of spin around the green. I had multiple chips that I felt I hit way too hard but the ball checked up quick enough to keep me 10 feet or less from the pin. And the feel was fantastic, I could really tell if I had hit the ball with the right touch.
       
      Off the putter was great as well. I did some of my best putting ever during my first round with this ball. 35 putts, when I average in the 40s on a normal day. The ball felt soft but borderline solid off the putter face with a nice quiet sound, no clicking from this ball.
       
      This ball will definitely be staying in my bag for a while for further testing. But so far I am a huge fan. Plus, now I can say I play all Wilson everythang. Check back for updates.

      (4) TESTERS WANTED!!


       
      WILSON STAFF C300/C300 FORGED IRONS
       
       
      Gotta say gang, we're really excited to bring this one to you. There's been more buzz this spring about the Wilson Staff C300 and C300 Forged irons on these pages than any other Wilson offering that I can remember, and for good reason. They do represent one of the more intriguing iron releases of 2018.
       
      Both irons fall into the Game Improvement category, with the C300 offering more distance and forgiveness and the C300 Forged offering a more compact frame, bit more pop than a better player's cavity back and all the forged goodness you could possibly want. 
       

       
      TESTERS WANTED:
       
      We're looking for four of you to do that voodoo that you do and give these things a good MyGolfSpy Forum going over. We need two avid golfers to test and review (and keep) a set of the C300's, and two more to do the same thing with the C300 Forged. 
       
      As always, we want to make sure you're ready to tackle the challenge of being a MyGolfSpy tester. You'll be asked to spend a solid two months working with these irons on both the practice range and on the course. You'll also be asked to write a two stage review (we'll provide you with a template) and provide your fellow Forum members with a detailed, thoughtful and - most importantly - honest evaluation of the C300's. 
       
      This review opportunity is open to any avid golfer/dedicated reviewer in the US, Canada or the UK.
       

       
      How To Apply:
       
      If you want to test and review (and keep, did we mention that?) a set of C300's, please apply in THIS FORUM ONLY (applying in the blog won't do you any good, okay?). In this thread, please tell us the following:
       
      Your first name/home state or province
      Your current iron set/shaft combo
      Your current handicap
      Your review preference - C300 or C300 Forged
       

       
      We'll be selecting two of you to review the C300's and two others to review the C300 Forged. We'll be announcing the testers in this thread next week, so make sure to check back!
       
      Thanks, and best of luck!!!
