So, during the MGS live feed 2021 Raffle, Adam and Harry dropped some early intel on one of the drivers currently in testing that has yielded "the fastest ball speeds they ever recorded".  That is to say each tester using this driver so far, has recorded their fastest ball speeds.  Let's see who the forum thinks makes this new bomber?  I'm going with Taylormade.

Bryson’s are up, and two guys I know in LA are seeing the same thing. Not saying I’m right on the poll above, but I do know folks are seeing good things from the 2022 Cobra head.

Wow, lots of OEM's feeling no love.  Thus far looks like a 3 way race for the "hottest face off the tee" moniker.  Given the surge in swing speed training going on, this title is undoubtedly motivating the engineering and marketing teams more so than ever.  Off the fairway?... who cares... I hit it tree-fiddy dude 😆.

I think part of that is because we know these 3 have had their new 2022 drivers out on the wild. As far as most of us know Ping, Titleist, Mizuno, Srixon and others are still on their 2021 versions.

I don't know, but I think the delay of Top Gun 2 caused some brand name annoyances. First Callaway tried to get in on it with Maverik, now TM is going for Stealth (which is the new jet in the movie). I joined the navy because I watched Top Gun at a very young and influential age, now the ad teams are trying to lure me in again. But I'm on to them.

I guess if it (Top Gun 2) gets delayed another year, Cobra will come out with the "Need for Speed" as next years line. Or at least use it as their marketing pitch with Bryson hitting balls off the flight deck of an aircraft carrier.... Okay, if they do that I will buy it... And I want some credit for the campaign.

Good point, there is that product cycle thingy.  Are we seeing the natural pairings (cycles) of the tortoises vs. hares? 🤔

I picked Callaway.  No reason than I hope it is.  That way, I can try my collection of optifit shafts on the Callaway head.  I don't need another collection of shafts with Taylormade or Cobra hosels 🙂

Would love to see Mizuno up their game, but I suspect Cobra will continue to set the bar in terms of highest ball speed.

Well now, what a difference a day makes. Cobra is now getting lapped by both TM and Callaway.  If only I had the ability to see who @cnosilpicked 😆.  Radspeed vs. Jailbreak vs. Twist face... who will prevail?

I would say mizuno is making huge strides with their driver. They have a fantastic low spinning drivers and both of the last 2 models have been quite forgiving. They just aren’t making enough of a dent in the big boys.  If you were to flip a professional on the rise it may turn some heads. I know they have gone after some of the YouTube golf vloggers which may help gain some traction in the younger crowds. Taylor made and callaway I would think are head to head with pushing the needle for fastest speeds

I was thinking Kyle Berkshire's recent videos as well where he set a new ball speed record over 233.
