OK, I know I got some eye rolls just with the title but here me out. apparently Krank has come out with drivers(conforming & non-conforming) where the clubface is designed for different club speeds. So one for swing speeds over 105 and another for 105-85. So what I'm able to asses from the website is that on normal conforming drivers, you wont achieve a spring like effect with the club face unless ur swing speed is 105 or greater. So for slower sing speeds u would have a thinner face with more spring effect that would add distance. Now, I don't know if this is true but if so who would take advantage of this tech, if it was legit. And as a side note @GolfSpy MPR why wouldn't MGS test KRANK golf in it yearly driver test????

I am not an MGS employee but as a tester I have some insight on what clubs are included in testing. There is criteria and manufacturers generally elect to participate and provide equipment. If a major OEM does not want to participate often MGS will purchase that equipment to include in testing; which may result in limited configurations for fitting testers. MGS generally won’t pick a niche product to include in testing. I have heard reference to the fact that the company also has to have a level of manufacturing to produce a particular level of product. If the product wins, sales generally rise and the manufacturer has to be able to support that increase. Additionally, MGS has testing schedules and the company has to submit product within that schedule to be included. Actual Test time is another factor; the more clubs tested, the longer testing takes. Testing is done based on tester availability and it generally takes a tester 4+ weeks to get through testing a set of drivers.

This may not be everything that goes into selection of a product for testing and is my opinion looking at things from a tester perspective.

I was hoping @cnosil would weigh in; as an actual tester for Most Wanted, he has more insight to the process that I do. The forum moderators are totally a different group than the guys in the testing lab; I've never been to the lab (though I'd love to visit some time).

I would add this footnote to cnosil's explanation: as he said many OEMs send clubs to MGS for testing. Any OEM who refuses to send a club, MGS has to purchase. Why doesn't Krank send a driver for testing? I don't know this first-hand, but it could have something to do with their last-place finish in the 2014 Most Wanted Driver testing: https://mygolfspy.com/2014-most-wanted-driver-overall-awards/

There's a good explanation from @Tony Covey MGS in the comments from the 2017 MW testing (click the link and search for "krank") explaining why they hadn't gone a purchased a Krank driver for testing that year: https://mygolfspy.com/2017-most-wanted-driver/
