  1. Ok, so I haven't been on here in a very long time, but I had to share this and see if this is what is happening with everyone else. I custom ordered a Titleist TSI 2 driver and received it to spec. There was no torque wrench included so no big deal, it must have been a mistake and I'll call them. I did and the customer service lady told me that the decision was made to not include a torque wrench with any purchased for the current run of new metal woods. Are you kidding me??? A $550 driver (not including tax) doesn't come with a torque wrench like it does with all of the other manufacturer
  2. Ping G400 Max with 44.5 " TFC Tour 65 shaft. Not the longest (still close though) I've ever hit, but definitely a fairway finder.

  4. I'm guessing because forged irons are more expensive to make and most of the golfers super game improvement irons are aimed at aren't willing to put down that kind of cash, although I have no idea if that's entirely accurate. The one set that comes to mind though is the Callaway Razr XF. A buddy of mine has a set of these and although they're at least partially forged, they're not as soft as a Mizuno MP iron but they do feel great and are super easy to hit. Fantastic irons but came with a premium price and not sure if they're still available.
  5. Thanks for the replies everyone. On a different note, does anyone have any time with the Big Bertha (non-Alpha) and an initial review that they could share, positive or negative? I know it just came out today, but there seems to be a lot of lucky people out there that somehow get these before everyone else.
  6. [quote name='nova6868' timestamp='1392399958' post='8668005'] You realize they only used 6 testers...? Also, BB had limited options available for testers. I think SLDR and G25 both had 2-3 lofts available. And besides, the only real standout distance wise was the SLDR. And I admit that knowing I don't even like the SLDR. [/quote] I didn't know they only used 6 testers, that does make a difference.
  7. [quote name='swizbeatz' timestamp='1392396937' post='8667681'] I just pulled a shaft from last years gamer and put a g25 tip on it effectively committing to playing it at least for the start of the year. First ping driver since the old tisi or whatever it was called ~13 years ago. I keep reading about high MOI and I saw that on the course in the fall, I also am a low spin player so most of these new drivers won't work great for me. Its a legit driver, its not the absolute longest but its a great combo of length and accuracy. I hit the 3 wood against the I25 3 wood on trackman and the G wi
  8. [quote name='swizbeatz' timestamp='1392389725' post='8666641'] My thoughts are ad dollars play a huge effect and that everyone needs to hit them for themselves to see what's BS and what's not. This year surprisingly the SLDR is legit and the BB is not. Sucks for the TM haters, I'd generally say I'm a part of that group too lol. Only my opinion of course. [/quote] Thanks for the reply. I know ad dollars can influence one's ability to be unbiased, but I can't imagine it would to this degree (maybe so). The Big Bertha was almost dead last in both accuracy and distance, which I just can't
  9. Hey everyone, just got through reading a certain golf website's driver reviews and have to say that there are some really unexpected rankings. No surprise that the SLDR or G25 did so well, but am I the only one who was shocked that the new Big Bertha and Big Bertha Alpha weren't among the elite? How exactly can those two drivers be the among the top choices in two other publications (Golf Digest and Golf.com) and be on the other end of the spectrum in another? I'm fully aware of the advantage (real or not real) advertising dollars play in these types of reviews, but even so, can it really b

  12. Yes, they are that good. Played with the G20s before these (which were also very good), but just desired a slightly less clunky look. Before the G20s, I played mostly semi-players type cavity backs (JPX 800 Pro, Mizuno MX-300, Callaway X-16 Pro Series). I can honestly say (even on this site) that I just can't see changing to anything else for a long time. You know how you can remember your best shots ever with each iron? I've been playing this game for over 30 years and out of the 7 G25 irons I carry, 4 of my best shots ever were with these clubs. I hit a 9-iron the other day from 138 ou
  13. Ping G25, 913 D2, Taylormade RBZ Stage 2 and Jetspeed, Callaway XHot, and so on. There's so much good equipment out that it's going to be difficult for you know what's best for you without hitting them. I firmly believe the most forgiving driver is the one you walk up to the tee box with 100% confidence it's going down the middle. I do agree with the others that 45" is plenty long for a driver.
