DRRicksDRRicks Banned Posts: 2,444 ClubWRX
I’m hearing: 2019 Apex and Apex Pro refresh, Epic Wood refresh, and PM Grind 2.0



Anyone hearing anything else?

    I’d like to see the new fwys and hybrids be adjustable with jail break tech.




    I've held the protos of the new fwys and they were bonded. I didn't get much intel on them except you could see they had jailbreak and there is both a standard and SZ version. The sole was a lot closer to the Rogue than I would have thought, but more flat like the Epic. It also has a different head shape at address than either the Epic or Rogue.



    As far as wedges, I have heard the MD Forged is going away and the new version is going to be a mix of the MD 4 and Forged. Head/toe shape of the MD 4 with he straighter leading edge of the Forged. New PM wedge is coming too, but I haven't seen it yet.



    Iron wise, the protos that Xander has been testing are going to be a new line, however from what I have been told, they don't know exactly what they are going to replace, either the Apex or they may even be the new Legacy model.



    And as always, new chrome softs coming.

    Callaway really needs to change it up with the irons. Apex irons have got worse in my opinion. Rebrand them and start fresh.
  • easylittle5woodeasylittle5wood Posts: 1,184 ✭✭
    Whatever the name it’d really like to see Xander’s irons released. Those look special.



    If there is an XR 19 Line coming out I hope they bring back those super compact pro version hybrids.

    I dont want to be a debbie downer, BUT...



    I'm good with the new clubs... shoes... whatever.



    But, the ball? It's similar to what happened to the Lethal ball. Everyone loves it, it's a good ball. So, let's change it.



    Their ball is competitive and has a following, why change it to a new technology,? Presumably for new performance. People are trying to work with the ball to get comfortable with it.



    Titleist updates the pro v line, but the changes are small. Not much new tech, maybe a refinement. This sounds like new... wasn't graphalene new?

    As they start to see a decline in sales, they introduce a new product. If sales were steady or increasing there wouldn't be a new ball.

    ^^this. Unfortunately stock holders rule. The original chrome soft is the best IMHO. The Grapahlen whatever I hated. Bring a new one out -the 2017's will get cheaper.

    The current Chromesoft X is one of my favorite balls I’ve played. Personally though this business model is why Pro V1 is still king in sales. Titleist hasn’t changed the name of their ball ever and keeps tweaking it here and there. Everyone knows they can get a ball they’re use to time and time again with Titleist knowing that it won’t be vastly different. Callaway and Taylormade recycle names over and over hoping one sticks. The Chrome Soft name has or had some traction. Why not just make it simple and call the new ball the Chromesoft 19 or whatever. They can tweak it here and there and continue with forward momentum. I don’t get it.

    Guys, calm down, they aren't changing Chrome Soft but there is a new ball coming. Look at their current line up compared to Titleist and Taylormade, what models are Callaway currently not directly competing against from a price point and player profile perspective?

    Change the Paint on the Chromesoft.

    It looks like a cheap or mid tier ball with that glossy painted cover.

    ProV1, TP5, Tour B, look more premium

    I played Pro V1 for years and years. Sometimes I found a ball that I actually liked better but never really switched because I didn’t want that ball to end up being discontinued. I loved the Chromesoft X 18 that it was the first time I really got away from Pro V1’s. Sure, I don’t mind if it’s little tweaks here and there but don’t reinvent the wheel on us again.
