    I like my TS2 a lot.

    But I also like the look of the Cortex.

    Love the deep face.

    Will other OEM wrenches work with the Wilson?


    Yes, they will fit. Although everyone says they’re different torques. My Cobra, W/S, Ping, TM all work on my various models from the OEMs I’ve mentioned. The Cortex is no joke, Inpromise. Try it if yuh get a chance.

    Picked one up on ebay for $285.

    Looking at the listings. It looks like, at most, you would spend $400 on a brand new one. They have some going quite a bit cheaper at auction (around what you paid) that are listed used but look brand new. A great option for those that want to buy it but can't get over the Wilson pricing. In my mind, $400 is the sweet spot for it anyhow.

    I was chasing one in an auction yesterday that the winning bid was right at $285 on it.

    That seems extremely odd. i am not saying you are wrong but that seem so strange.




    Yeah that's real weird. I could see if they did like ping or other companies and offer didn't model in different size but to do it by loft makes zero sense.


    The 10.5 I got is a tad elongated compared to the 9. Not highly noticeable but after looking st them a few minutes I could see it, that's when I mentioned in the shop. Really liking the driver do far . I'm gonna see if the shafts are interchangeable with the C300.
    There is a different sizing in cc per degree selected..This due to 9* is for Pros it's the smaller head.. I have see it in Text message from Wilson Rep to store owner.

    Challenge for WS is maintaining the $500 price point at retail. Getting a driver in Auction for $285 is not a good sign. My guess the Cortex will be heavily discounted by Feb. Shops near me have sold 2 so far and they were online orders from who knows where in the country. That's a pretty terrible launch.

    Completely agree. Less than 3 weeks after release doesn’t help the perception.

    I have a 9 degree head and love it. I’m also a 9 hdcp, far from a pro. Love the look at address. Deep face is very nice. Evenflow shaft.



    And most of the sales on eBay are for pre owned clubs. Still, I agree, not a good look.

    But I’ll keep mine.

    The review everyone has been waiting for is up. Kind of what I expected.

  • Popeye64Popeye64 Members Posts: 874 ✭✭
    One thing you cant take away from this club is how good it looks. Also a couple of the reviews have shown 700-800 RPM differences front the back on the sliding weight.. I'm looking forward to swinging this club.
  • 03trdblack03trdblack ClubWRX Posts: 1,833 ClubWRX
    In almost all of Rick's reviews he states at the end whether or not he could play this club and it would go in his bag. I noticed he left that out in this review.

    2 sold should put them ahead of the game when compared with the last one. Lol

    He posts his "acceptable range" of numbers. Cortex falls within it. So, you can assume, the numbers are similar to other clubs. You'd almost have to check his other reviews to get those clubs numbers unless he does a head to head eventually.

    Spin and launch were the only ones that were higher than his range

    Played my 10.5 Cortex fitted with Tour Spec Blue today in NY with 26 to 30 degree air temps.

    This driver is the real deal slightly outperforming my TM M4 with same shaft setup.

    I love the compact footprint uber carbon fiber head!!

    My 10.5 with Blue beat out my Rogue with all time fave Green NV in it. Glad to hear you like it.

    Maybe I'm jumping the gun here (and maybe numbers don't translate from driver to woods) but the launch angle and spin could be promising for a Cortex 3 wood or 5 wood!

    I commented the same on their Instagram page. Needed a 3 wood.

    I believe a new 3 wood is being tested on tour. It’s not a Cortex though, I think it was a D7 if I’m not mistaken. One of their staffers posted on Instagram awhile back.

    Yes, you’re correct. I saw that. Cortex 3 wood would be awesome though. Whole line of d7 coming.

    its seem'd to me to be much more tempered than is his norm. i think he was trying to be very careful regarding the review of this club. probably a good thing.
