  1. Me too. The G is awesome but I agree with many that it's not the best sounding/feeling. They improve that, along with what other tech is in it, and I'd probably buy it. So they should improve the sound, feel and tech? sounds like your saying they just need to start over haha!
  2. So I am curious why you say this... clearly you aren't familiar with MOI and Discretionary weighting then... A thicker / heavier crown takes weight away from the balance and perimeter of the club, reducing its MOI and making it less forgiving. This is the reason for the carbon crown anyways... reduce weight drastically over titanium and make the club more forgiving. The technology won't go away, but I can see it being modified. Also, The new Jailbreak Technology has proven to increase ball speeds on both robots and HUMANS! So essentially what your saying is no company has ever made a reason
  3. Oh but some drivers you just can't save the sound... Thank you Nike for the Sasquatch, a sound that is not salvageable but we all know!
  4. I have also Hit nearly all of these drivers. I am biased towards the Callaways, but having sold golf equipment for 13 years now, I saw the biggest technology boost this year in the last couple. Everyone has a different swing and those different clubs will balance better too them. realistically almost any of these drivers could be comparable if they are custom fit properly. I have an EPIC Sub Zero that blew all of these other clubs out of the water when fit. Spin rate is still high, but that is my swing unfortunately. The Sub-Zero was on average 12.2 yards longer than the best fitting M1 I trie
  5. [quote name='Hot Rod 71' timestamp='1436012992' post='11886226'] Interesting.....I thought Callaway was reducing their releases. [/quote] Correction... They aren't slimming down on the releases of drivers, they are reducing the quanity available. Trying to reduce the excess clubs on the market and better evaluate demand. If demand is 30,000 drivers, they aren't going to make 60,000 and then sell them all on clearance at the end of year to try and get more marketshare like some companies do and like they have in the past. Plan is 3 drivers a year in limited quantities. They are also doing

  8. [quote name='denzo79' timestamp='1408788566' post='9992195'] Its a joke Callaways releases are way to quick, Taylormade get a lot of grief but at least theyve ran with SLDR for a year!! [/quote] Haha not yet, The SLDR took on another model and a color change within months of release. Not to mention the shortest product line in golf history, The Jet Speed that lasted not 2 months... callaway usually comes out with a new driver line each spring. They may be trying to release a new model of the bertha and alpha before the holidays to see if that boosts sales at all as opposed to waiting till

  10. I've seen and hit them in person and I can honestly say that my X-proto's will finally be able to RIP knowing that I have upgraded to these beautiful new clubs! While they do look like the T-zoids in the pictures, seeing them in person will change your mind as the material isn't as thick on the back like the T-Zoids and these Apex MBs have a nice curved cut back to them. Sole width didn't seem to be an issue at all and heal-toe length is just a tad shorter than the Razr MBs. Overall they are spectacular irons. The UT looks great too, but I have not hit it yet.

Coming out in in September. One thing you can not see in these images is a slightly inset, curve on the bottom back of the irons that give them a very neet look! Toe seems slightly more rounded from the top angle and Blade length almost seems a slight bit shorter. Stock shafts were KBS Tour-V or Dynamic Gold. They will not be seen in stores other than maybe a Demo or a rare set. These are going

  13. Are we seriously talking quality issues with Callaway? And whoever said TMag is buil to last is on something making them bat nuts loopy. I've worked in Golf Sales for over 10 years and handled repairs and returns as well. There is no company with larger quality problems than Taylormade. Easily returned their poroduct for repair / replacement 3 to 1 over next closest company. Ping and Callaway are 2 of the longest lasting and most value holding companies on the market. Titleist is up there too, but they have a smaller target market as well. In general there are quality issues with every com
  14. Answers for all! No the leadingedgeof the wedge is not that sharp... Yes the copper is just a finish that masks a raw new carbon steel body... I have hit this finish and think it is spectacular! It comes in 2 finishes... Copper and what I would describe as a nickel finish. Non rust and no shine, just straight up nice! The jaws will still be in line. Jaws wedges have a softer feel with I higher launch and a bit more offset designed for the regular player. The pros will play the new forged wedges that are more firm and aggressive. The tear drop design is less rounded and has a great appe
