That is good news, but it actually happened about a month ago.  

The good news out of all of this is that the price for all of Titleist's TS drivers came down $100 and I just noticed this week 🙏

 

Honestly, not sure how I missed that 🤦.

I had the good fortune of being hosted at the Ping factory back in college (sponsorship) and got to talk with John Solheim himself for a bit (he attended my college and sits on their board). He walked

I hope Ping will name its driver G420 and offer Mary Jane green color scheme. Stoners rejoice! 😄

What did Ian say specifically (Titleist)? Any mention of new tech and release dates?

Not much at all.  Very summarily said Titleist would release new drivers.

LOL...Well to be fair both PING and Titleist do their "repositioning" in pretty low key manors.  They just put the word out to their dealers and let them take it from there, not much public advertising about it.

They have had a new driver every year for at least the last 5 years I believe.  Don't know how much it when the SZ drivers will drop.  If you're in a hurr for one less than full price. Might be better off looking for one on Ebay

Will Cobra release a new driver in 2021? Wondering if their current drivers will drop in price in 6 months or should I look to replace my ancient driver in the next few days.

Piggy back off @Golfspy_CG2 lots on eBay right now. Great deals actually depending on what you’re looking for. I have been hunting TS2 and SIM woods and the drivers are very reasonable compared to retail.

Also keep your eyes peeled for something possibly coming from Callaway sooner than most may think.

Now I'm curious to see what callaway has up their sleeve. Not a fan of the Mavrik look so anything different would be welcome.

Also interesting that the "Mavrik Max Fast" photo shows a fixed hosel. I'd be fine with that, but when was the last time Callaway introduced a mainstream driver with a fixed hosel? It's been awhile hasn't it?

 

Edit: guess this isn't a mainstream driver, it's the Japanese market club that will be replacing the "star" lineup.

Thanks for sharing. I am The Green Fee. I saw this on the USGA list a couple of weeks ago. I posted the original article then I found the driver on the Callaway Japan website. Like I said in my article the use of Carbon Fiber is interesting for sure. Callaway has been known to release midcycle light weight drivers

The mavrik won’t be going anywhere as it’s only on the first year of its cycle. The upcoming release will be for the epic flash which is already discounted to $350 and isn’t on Callaway’s site anymore

The SIM Max is a bomber. Something about it causes it to be slightly fade biased even though its not really supposed to be. Its good for one WTF slice a round, otherwise it behaves pretty well unless I put a really poor swing on the ball.

I know the Mavrik will be around for this year, but @Golfspy_CG2 seemed to be hinting that something non-Mavrik was coming.

Also, is Callaway really on a 2 yr cycle with drivers or is it really just 1 year now? When the Mavrik came out, the Epic Flash seems to not only be discounted, but also discontinued. All you can get is whatever retailers have in-stock, you can't order anything which makes me think they aren't making them anymore and it was really only a 2019 product. It used to be that Callaway would have 2 driver/wood lines in production at once and they would alternate years which one got refreshed.

Yes Callaway is on a 2 year cycle per model. The mavrik came out but the epic flash was still an offering and now the replacement for epic flash will come but the mavrik will still be an offering. Just like with rogue irons replaced by the mavrik. It can be confusing because the last several releases the pricing and advertising can have one think one is a replacement for the other, but Callaway has been doing two driver releases at different time for a long time with the GBB and XR lines. 

So yes what was being referred to is the epic flash replacement.
