Every review on youtube so far has had 2-4 mph less ballspeed, same with the C300. 

Everyone?  Rick Shiels review shows 111 CHS and 160.9 BS and that is 1mph slower than his optimal swing speed and above average for ball speed.  Plus keep in mind if he went with a shaft that is better suited for him to reduced the spin and help with launch, the cortex may very well be better than his G400 LST.  As it is he is within a yard or 2 in carry with of his fully fitted driver.  I just don't think your blanket statement that everybody is seeing less ball speed is correct.  It may very well be true for you and some others but certainly not everybody.  

On a side note, not everybody is concerned with ball speed.  I will gladly give up 5-10 yards to find the fairway more often.

If the Cortex is equal to the major OEMs in performance and price, most people will choose the other brands! Wilson should have priced this driver at $400-450 to get more people to stop and take a look.

I agree. To win at retail this driver has to outperform other drivers, because at the price point people will go with more trusted brands. This year is shaping up to the Year of the Driver, so Wilson will have it's work cut out for it. 

A high-spin driver is not what the majority of the golfing public wants either, so it will be hard to win on the launch monitor if that's the reality. If I can spin an M1 above 4000 with the weights forward, I wonder what score I can get on this one!!!

I didn’t like this one at all through the show, I felt like the Rozwell was better. I should have clarified why. I watch every elisode, and for me, as I watched, the better numbers all came from the Rozwell, I was looking forward to hitting that one, so I have no desire to hit a 400 dollar driver that I have no interest in.

The WS technology hasn't caught up with the WS marketing. DvD has an appeal to a niche customer base. But, that base also has pretty good knowledge about what they're looking for (re:data). So again, as stated in an earlier post, this driver once the price is lowered may have an appeal to the non discriminating economic buyer wowed by the looks..

This is why the Tour Edge EXS driver has moved up to #1 on my list. Good reviews, performance numbers look good, low spin and good MOI, and $299.99. That's hard to beat!

To be fair it goes the same way for the TEE EXS at $299. For that price you can get a new Ping G400 (non max) driver with the drop in prices now.

The Cortex is a driver that can stand with the other drivers.

I did a review of the driver cortex review

The specs are interesting at not the standard OEM specs. particularly in length and swing weight.

I really didn't think the Fuji shaft was going to work in the club because of my previous bias to the construction of other models, thinking they were all the same. Wellllll,.. come to find out Im a bonehead and this white ATMOS is a pretty nice shaft.

I only wish Wilson would make this a part of one of their categories. There is a driver for the D and C models. How about putting it in the F category and follow it with a hybrid or FW.

No matter what the ball speed or distance numbers are, the only number that really matters is price. I can't see anyone picking this up at $499, even W/S homers.

I can't figure out why the DvD drivers (that sounds ridiculous as I type it), are stand alone clubs. As mentioned above, why not make it an F, C, D model? 

Because it’s not as much about the driver as it is the show and  uioding brand recognition and changing the perception of the brand.  The driver and “design” process is the tool used to draw attention to the show and brand

The problem with Wilson trying to build brand recognition is that Wilson still makes boxed clubs. They really should change the name of the upper line from Wilson Staff to Prostaff or something similar. That would take away any perception of Wilson not being an upper echelon brand.

      Took about a year, but now have officially flipped my bag for the first time. Year before, I began inundating myself in golf knowledge and equipment. Learned how the swing path and club face work together, how to shape shots and have made great progress. Now I know exactly what I'm doing, and most often know why. So far I've seen my handicap drop significantly, (15-17 down to 5-8). Technically at this point, I'm a 5 handicap, but that was one score out of 5 (5, 18 hole rounds. I've played quite a bit of 9 hole rounds) and I believe I'm closer to an 8 realistically. But maybe I'll be lower and near a 5 this year with thMP-18e clubs in my bag fully updated and have more experience with each club.
      Updated my driver and 3W shaft as well after getting them last year and I think that will be a game changer and lower my scores by hitting more fairways. Drastically improved my iron game with getting fitted and buying Mizuno MP-18 mixed set. Can shape my shots and get very consistent distances, so I'm pretty excited for this year. Wedge game improved quite a bit too and now have rounded out the SM6 set completely. Also really excited as I've been rolling the new Taylormade TP Black Copper Juno nicely in the basement, and getting very consistent rolls and forgiveness. Never have really been excited about a putter, but the black copper is sexy, and it performs.
      Looking to get on simulators a few times this winter, heated driving range a few times, a big golf show to attend, Taylormade demo fitting, and plently of swinging and putting in the garage and basement. Looking forward to early spring and am optimistic for my best golf yet.
