      159
    • TaylorMade SIM2 in the middle of the pack

Who would ever think that someone would say best value and PXG in the same sentence.

...all of the conspiracy theorists are going to be upset that a Ping club isn't somewhere in the list. LOL

And can't wait to hear the Callaway loyalist who scream MGS has a bias against them..ha

Oh my! No PING?!

Another nice test, interesting to see that Callaway moved to a more PING LST-like spin story (low but playable) and claimed the crown. I haven’t hit that one yet but I want to. Nice to see the Radspeed up there too.

So I’ll be the first to ask... when do we get the high speed players report??!

If they are able to stick to the same schedule as the past, I think it will be about 3 to 4 weeks from now.

Weird times! lol

I’m sort of surprised that they let the 0211 series look better than the 0811. Although I know some folks will love the lighter strip of carbon.

I’ll certainly try to get my hands on a demo of some sort this Spring. And looks like I need to do a Titleist Thursday fitting too.

Bottom line seems to be there’s a lot of high quality equipment out there.

I anxiously await this data as well.

Mizuno hype = dud distance? That's depressing. 

Ping G410LST still holding its own. Ebay and other BST forums about to find renewed demand for that club.

I was fitted for the Cobra Radspeed back in January. Glad to see what my fitting showed is matching up with the test results. After a few range sessions and one round, I'm feeling much more confident at address with the Radspeed. Hopefully going to get in a few rounds this week with good weather on the horizon for Georgia, but I'll say the distance gains and consistent launch i'm getting right now have been substantial compared to my old Taylormade M6.

Great to see the 410LST hold its own. It's exactly what I have seen in testing the 2021 drivers against my LST.  Nothing can beat it because it is properly fit.  The only drivers I haven't hit against it are the Mizuno STZ and Radspeed.

Interesting results as always. Flip flopping years here on Callaway and Ping. All the top performers are close though.

Really interesting results.  Ping seems to have outdone themselves on the G410.   For the past 5 years or so, Callaway seems to safe bet when it comes to a new fitting.

I am neutral overall on Callaway. Really surprised at how well the new Epic line did.

Disappointed on the Ping G425 Max.

the price on that PXG driver - my goodness what a deal. And it looks sharp too. If I was in the market that would be a strong contender.

don't overlook the Tour Edge. That is a solid stick.

The stats nerd in me would love to see some standard deviation numbers on things like spin and ball speed.

Thanks MGS, you just saved me $900. 😊

Told you man, if you wanted to go Orange, the EXS Pro might be the play

Pretty much blows everything up and I will just start over. Now that new driver is off the table I’m going to have to see how the Tensei Orange matches up against the Ventus Blue and my current setup next week.
