    I hit the Wilson's this past weekend at the PGA superstore. I put the Project X Catalyst graphite 6.0 (ie. stiff 80 grams) in them and similar distance to the T-rail and HB turbos with the stock regular.....last time I hit the t-rail and HB turbo I was spinning around 6800 with a 7i, today around 7800 and with the Wilson/Catalyst combo I was around 6800. All very high, very straight and similar distance to my current G-irons (power spec) with Aerotech 95g regular graphite (steel-fiber). The are all just so easy to hit. Pretty easy to flight them down (ie. into the wind shot) with a punch shot. I think they are seem all very similar off mats. The shaft offering the Wilson felt better for me set to 1 degree upright. Looks I say t-rail, then Wilson, the HB turbo. When we have a demo day and I can hit them outside off the grass and see the turf interaction comparison between them I think that is where a decision will be made.

    Courses, driving ranges and golf shops opened up north so I was able to try these clubs on the grass and watch ball flight yesterday. The shop let me take the HB turbo, T-rail, Launch Pad, and Tour Edge HL4 iron-woods (7irons, with reg and stiff graphite shaft) to their range. The T-rail off the grass had the best turf interaction, I didn't like the sound or feel or turf interaction of the HB Turbo or the Launch Pad. To me the feel of the HL4 iron-woods was the best and I was most consistent with them followed closely by the T-rail. I'm dealing with a significant wrist issue and [less] vibration at impact is key and I think the rubber slot in the HL4 dampened the most impact so I bought them with graphite regular (UST Mamiya) shafts. In this category of clubs I don't think a professional fitting is required. If you know enough about your swing and understand what you want in feel and turf interaction this category of clubs all do the same thing, get the ball in the air easily and make it go straight. For example, for the HL4 I hit the stiff, reg and "A" shaft and got exactly the same result; 7 iron dropping on the 150 yard marker. Pretty basic.
