    feel bad for anyone who bought the TS2 when they would really fit better into a TS1

    Common yes. For titleist? No. Aren't they historically 2 drivers every other year?

    Definitely aimed at being a G400 MAX competitor. They're doing the same type of extreme low and back weighting like the MAX, F9, and M6, but going with the ultra light angle for slower swingers. Slightly gimmicky I think and seems like a recipe for "great on the sim, wild on the course", but with a more standard weight setup I think it could be a real G400 MAX challenger. We'll see!

    Also the sole design looks like something out of Batman's utility belt. 😂

    I know they've released 3 at one time with the 915 range, 4 could well be new ground for them.

    Although it's 5 if you count the C16 range....

    it won't sell. nobody wants to step up with a driver that everyone thinks is "higher spin". You can get lighter weights for ts2 and put a lighter shaft in it.

    My thought exactly. I demoed the XXIO X driver with the Stiff/Regular shaft for four rounds and compared it againest my Epic Flash and M5. The XXIO X is a great stick and is ridiculously consistent, almost to the yard. My other two drivers were either 10 +/- yards shorter or 10++ yards longer carry. TS1 now tempts me. I am that demographic. A real 220+/- yards carry and not getting any younger!

    This is definitely something I want to consider. I was just contemplating a mini driver to try and get more swing speed, but this seems like a much better alternative. I'm going to be watching for some reviews to see if this delivers, and if so, I'll be getting fit for one when they are released.

    Me personally, I don't have a problem for a major OEM like Titleist releasing multiple variations of a driver or iron in their product release cycle. What I do have a problem is those OEMs that old back a variation or two of that club during the first release and then release it a few months later which would really **** off customers that bought the first batch of clubs. When it is time for OEM to introduce their clubs for this coming golfing year, they should release ALL of their models and variations and not hold anything back. That way, the customer knows that he will get the best club that is suited to his swing and be fully confident that his new purchase will not become obsolete until a newer club comes out in the next product release cycle.

    actually it will sell to a very large demographic of golfers, just not to wrx members cuz we all hate spin and have 134mph clubheadspeed.

    On a 3/4 swing maybe. LOL.

    Agreed. A lot people who bought a TS2 would've probably been better off with this.
    Same thing can be said for the TS4, Triple Diamond, G410LST or the apex pro dots

    This is capitalism at its finest. They are taking advantage of consumption patterns. They're also now a publicly traded company with a fiduciary responsibility to there investors. its no surprise to me at all they're following the Callaway model. I'd expect more and more of this from them.

    No issue with Titleist having four drivers out at any one time, as with others though, the staggered release is slightly contemptuous to customers who might have gone TS2 but would have been a better fit for TS2. The same thing can be said for TS3 and TS4. Clearly, these drivers have been in the works for sometime. There seems to be no reason why they couldn't have released them last September.

    Titleist is still doing what they normal do which is clubs on a two year life cycle. They've just added more specialized releases and staggered them. They release 2 Drivers each year, the first two are mass consumer (TS2, TS3) and the next year are the more niche market drivers (TS1, TS4). This is more similar to ping with the G400 max release then TM and Callaway who replace their mass market driver every year.

    So functionally, with the four models out there, to what type of golfer is each model suited? I have been knocking around the idea of a new driver, currently play a 913d of some flavor (the smaller head size between the two versions). Been looking at the Hogan driver just from a cost standpoint but am now interested in the Titleist models since you can get fit at a demo day or Edwin Watts for them.

    If the TS1 is for slower swingers what are the others for? I swing hard and fast and distance is not normally an issue (280+ carry (no wrx humblebrag, it is legit)) but direction is. I have a two way miss, though it is typically a push or hook. I like the ability to work it both ways, and know how to, and have done it at one point on cue consistently, but consistency is not consistent if you get what I mean. My 10 yard cut can turn into a balloon slice easily. Draw follows the same formula if I am not playing a bunch to keep timing in form.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
