That is perfect. Buy far the best review system, period. Difference in swing weight was amazing, as were the numbers for the testers.

Thanks MGS. Solid.

If possible, could swing speed be included in the future?

I went back and looked again but I may have missed it. Including it as a column in the data table would be helpful to see how my swing would compare.

I expected the reviews to be excellent based on reading about your testing procedures, and this has fulfilled my expectations and then some. I love the focus on objective data with a splash of subjectivity (looks, feel, sound). I can't wait to see more reviews and some head to head tests.

The version of the aboutGolf software installed on the Tark's simulators don't calculate swing speed (it actually makes sense based on how the 3 camera system works). That said, we think it something that would be reasonably easy to include (there are other ways). Although I think ball speed is the single most important number we get, swing speed is a great way to compare your swing to one of our testers. In future reviews I'll also include a brief description of the tempo of each golfer.

very very well done!! Here is one suggestion though if possible. Can you measure the swingweight and the length of the old driver versus the new driver? There were some significant increases in ball speeds probably due to the length of the adams. I am not discounting their speedline technology in the least as i bet it could have contributed as well. I am thinking this is another one of those objective testing things you might want to add.

Hey Sac, to get a rough estimate of what the testers swing speed was you can take their ballspeed/1.45 which is "theoretically perfect" contact as far as a smash factor goes.

Wow, what a great review. The length scares me to death though considering my driver is by far the weakest club in my bag.

 

Same here. I'd be cutting off over 2 inches to get it down to my preferred length and then I'd need to get the swingweight back up.

Thanks guys that is very helpful. Even if math is involved. :)

For the Speedline review, Swingspeed is quite relevant, considering the advertising.
