Are any of these podcast things available in segmented print online. I'd personally prefer to read. Not a podcast guy but some of the segments sound interesting.

Thanks for bringing it up. I'm not a podcast guy either. Wish everyone would provide an option of read or listen.

And I am looking forward to hitting each and every one of those drivers.   Plus I get to try the new Bridgestone ball and there were a lot of putters lined up waiting for us to test as well.

The problem is that these things aren't really scripted, so there's nothing written in advance to make this easy.  You can go to http://downsub.com, copy in the YouTube link, and download a text file with the auto-generated closed captions.  I'll warn you, auto-generated CCs are not awesome.  

I gotta be honest - the MGS boys make it easy to listen by posting their stuff on SoundCloud.  Just click on the link above and it will start playing.  No apps, no subscriptions, no nothing.

When I hear major brand, does that include Hogan and Sub 70? Sorry if that was covered. I don’t really do the podcast thing either.

Can't decide if you're calling him an American version of 'Yuppies' or saying yes!

Not sure if they were just listing drivers,  but there are more OEMs in most wanted testing than what you have listed.  Such as New Level,  Bettinardi, Edel, and Fourteen.

I will be honest, I am hoping for a sleeper come from behind win on the most wanted driver list. Maybe Cobra or Mizuno.

     Forgive me if I am wrong ( which my wife says is often), but wasn't the rebound frozen a few years back?

To my way of thinking (if correct) your best option would be a shaft fitting, yes?

... I'm with you and Plaid. I don't listen to podcasts and wish they would provide a transcript after it has been out awhile.

Just FWIW - these are also on Youtube if you'd rather not do a podcast.

That's the way I listen at work.

... Thanks, but the point is some of us like to read not watch or listen.

Yes, Max COR was established several years ago. The problem is that no driver to date has that same COR across the entire face. So miss hits won’t transfer the most energy to the ball. Additionally, club dynamics impact other variables, like spin and launch angle, that influence distance and dispersion.

That said shaft fittings are important to help the player sync everything up and help the player consistently deliver the head into the ball. This is needed because of variable like head total weight, weight distribution, and to some extents the look of the head.

I can tell that you every head will perform differently when you actually swing them. This applies to all clubs for driver through putter.

Written transcripts are very common today. Virtually all investor calls today - quarterly earnings call are all documented. Not sure if this is a cost issue for MGS or access to the right source.
