Okay we are having to shift this a little... as some of you know I am making the change from the modus 120TX to X7 and eventually working in the Accra iCWT2.0 as I transition to graphite in a 14 clubs. That being said based on availability of shafts and heads only 2 other heads will be going up against the ts1 forged and they will be the srixon zx7 and honma tr20v and they will all be shafted still with the modus 120TX... wedges will follow because hopefully they will have shipped by that point... I have rented a trackman for this upcoming week to go compare the 7i’s

This should be a very cool test!  Glad to hear things are getting somewhat back to normal... that was quite a saga you and your family just went through 😬.

Give Brandon some time, he's busy with some family stuff. I talk to him outside of the forums.

Its been just about 5 months. I guess life has gotten busy and harder than planned. When ever you get a chance pass the heads onto someone who may want or need them,, or whatever you like. 

Hope things turn around for you. Best of luck. 

I appreciate what ever effort you put forth.

Hey guys, Brandon has some stuff going on (outside of having a newborn). I don't want to speak on his behalf regarding personal matters, but please have some patients. Thank you.

Well then let him deal with his stuff. We don't need to have the comparison done. Like I said, have him either give the heads to another or throw them in the used club bin. Appreciate his efforts. It's just Golf. It was supposed to be fun, not an obligation.

Well he isn't answering DMs or IG messages either. I've asked for him to send them back. I know some of you guys know him. Just ask him to send them back. 

The worst part is he has visited this site this month. Profile shows August 9th.

Tiger is the GOAT, change my mind.

Man, this thread really didn't deliver. Anyone want to step up and take over the reins on this one? We have a lot of new Maltby designs!

The impression I got is that he never had any intention of actually doing anything. Over the span of time he jerked around, at least three times he said in a DM that the head was drying in the rack and he would hit it the next day. Then it was he didn't have the right shaft. The whole thing was just a joke to him.

Yeah it was hustle for sure. The guy was bullying people and picking fights all over the forum. Even if he was legit, he probably realized he got in way over his head with the Maltby stuff and didn't have the humility to admit that he was wrong. His whole objective was to prove that Maltby was cheap crap and that clearly can't be supported in any way.

Yeah it was a wild ride for sure. The thread that lead to that should be in some MGS Forum hall of fame/shame. I thought @Popeye64 was INCREDIBLY respectful and patient with him. Glad we didn't lose him as a result of that fiasco. I am pumped about the TE+ coming out and interested in the TS4 so I am really eyeballing the Maltby stuff pretty hard. I like my milled max wedge and really wish there was more head to head testing of maltby stuff vs DTC vs Major OEM. Always surprised MGS doesn't do it.
