Recommended Posts

Watched entire series with my hall of fame clubfitter best friend. His insights were interesting . All input on 1-10 scale w 10 best. Concept of show 9 Content 7 Fluidity of broadcast 5 Did right driver win? I assume yes Would have liked way more technical information and maybe a Wrxgolf team test with 30-40 of us with final 3 products Bottom of driver seems cool attractive and like it has street cred But I'd never buy the driver with the top of the head unless you could fill it in and paint it same color of rest of head Hate they alignment thing Even it was my top performer in a test I would not play anything that looked like that sorry I hope they bring show back with some upgrades It is a great concept

God, why did you guys have to post this? I'm tempted to put a few of these in the cart.

 

Online has smaller selection, 5 lofts in RH with KBS tour, only 45 degree with genius shaft. Wish they'd let you choose the 3 lofts for the 129 package deal.

In my VERY limited testing, It is Good.... Very good.

 

 

The crazy thing is that every single player that I have had try this club so far has just peppered the center of the face. I have hit about 75 shots, and only missed the center 3 times, and I am not that good. There might be something to the alignment aid.

 

The spin numbers are really low.

 

There are tons of adjustments. Getting the correct setting could be very Titleist like...

 

I hope that the Triton is a retail success..

Which sole plate did you have in there? Or did you switch back and forth?

What will be interesting to see is how many pros bag it and have the alignment aid painted black.

Supposedly Streelman, Paddy, Barnes and I think Steele are gaming without being paid.

Thanks for that spec sheet. And for those that say Titleist makes it to complicated to understand needing a chart with their sure fit hosel, will faint when they see this one...LOL

 

Exactly my thoughts when I saw the fitting chart, see my post above.

My biggest concern as a fitter is going to be putting this thing in someone's hands with the right plate and weights to put it in the running before we start fine tuning the final couple.

I am a low spin player, so the ti sole plate is the correct fit for me. I tried both, and there are some settings with the carbon plate that would be playable.

This thing may wind up being a tinkerers delight, but most folks are gonna need some fitting help. A friend went through a full fitting yesterday and was hitting her gamer - which had been fit for her, around 160 or so. After going through the fitting process with the Triton she was up close to 200.

 

It brings into question her first fitting, but she was sold. And I had to laugh when she asked how she could buy this thing without her husband knowing. Apparently women with husbands that don't golf have the same problem as men

Did you guys see this?????

 

Triton not yet on USGA conforming list!!!

Yeah - the rep told me that yesterday. They didn't have stock until Nov 7th and they decided not to submit it to the USGA until last week. Decision of secrecy vs. USGA approval. They apparently didn't want to risk any leaks before the finale.

 

They say they don't expect any issues with getting approval - but it may take a couple weeks.

I went to their website via clicking a link in an email from Wilson:  http://www.wilson.com/en-us/golf/drivers/driver-vs-driver    

For the heck of it, I put together a "custom" club and tried to add it to my shopping cart, nope.   Website isn't working, that's not good after they built up the hype for this club.....

Looks like the website is down for some reason. Lemme check with the local rep, see if he knows anything about it...

I thought I heard that the carbon plate was designed to be lower spin?

I know it's not USGA conforming yet, but honestly does that really affect 99.9% of us it doesn't clear approval?

Doesn't it really only "matter" if you're playing a USGA tournament?

Yes it would not able to be played on tour which would keep some (probably most) people from even trying it, but to me it's stupid that it has to be played on tour for someone to even consider it. Those men and women are paid to play their clubs, and they 100x better than 99.99% of us. We are nowhere close to touring pros and their decision to play X club "shouldn't" affect whether you play it or not.

And before too many people ****** about playing non-conforming equipment, they didn't design it to be outside the club design limits AND there's plenty of you using "illegal" Ping eye 2 and Cleveland wedges out there.

It is lighter weight, so it essentially creates a higher CG driver. Lower Launch and lower spin. I could play it with the carbon sole plate in a higher loft and different shaft.

I Finally watched the Finale today, even though I had known all week which one won. It would Have been impossible to not hear and still watch the golf channel. Ha

 

Seems like a solid offering and something I will try eventually. Having just bought a 917. I'm not in a rush to buy another driver just yet.

 

Glad for Eric, he was kinda my favorite personality the whole time.

They've spent a lot of money just to hype this, that I don't think they'll ever recoup. Who's gonna buy this when the SLDR-C is $89? Am I right?

LMAO!!   No reasonable person that's for sure  :lol:
