I for one would love to see a smaller company have a driver that is just as good if not outperforms a major OEM. I for one could care less what type of club it is as long as it fits me and plays well. Will be interesting to see if this test shows that the smaller companies produce a product just as good as the big boys.

 

 

In the end everyone should be looking for the one club that works best for them..... Doesn't necessarily mean longest off the tee it means longest and finds fairways most consistently. With todays world where you can find a reputable fitter everyone should get properly fit into all clubs.

Really interested in the Cobra driver to see how that stacks up against the others. The only part I'd like to see different is that I could get to demo all these with you guys!! B)

Quite frankly I'm not sure what to say right now. Within the last couple of hours there have been some unexpected developments concerning our test.

 

The extent of the situation is unknown at this precise moment, but I'll provide more information as soon as further details emerge.

 

Regardless, I stand by my earlier statement. We're not done yet.

Hey T, are any of your testers high spin/high launch guys? If so, those are the results I want/need to pay attention to the most.

 

One of our testers generally fits the description. He was a guy who bought off the rack, 9.5, stiff historically. After watching him struggle, we started putting him into 8.5 X-flex and the numbers...at least with his gamer, have been much better. He tweaked his knee earlier this week...no big deal, but it did postpone his first testing session. I expect we'll have him in at least 3 times next week.

 

One of other testers is a low launch high spin guy...I used to be that, now for whatever reason, I'm suddenly an average launch, low spin guy. Stupid game this golf.

I think the company that had not responded began to feel left out and now may be deciding to join the party. I think all the seats at the table are going to be taken.

Slight aside, but all Cleveland has to do is join in and I'll start respecting them again. Until they stop blacklisting MGS though, I don't even look at their stuff.
