  1. Honestly did not see that coming. I didn't care for the 3, and the 4 doesn't look like my style again. Thank goodness for GF.
  2. And personally, I'm not too worried about HydroPearl in my Sand/Lob. Maybe lie angles, but not the coating.
  3. Honestly, I don't care as long as they start offering the X in something other than flat white. The football markings TM and Cally have are ideal, and yellow only in Japan is horrible. If they don't offer yellow, I'm going to start looking at my options.
  4. Just to add to the Feb release, etc., the J site is now looking for 300 "beta testers". It's for their "New Ball Secret Monitor Campaign". This goes out Mid-Feb in Japan to those participants, so the only question is when does it arrive on store shelves.
  5. The next "woods" will be announced in mid-January 2023.
  6. I frankly don't care. Just glad she's not with Parsons anymore.
  7. It's a fair question. If memory serves, the 2.0 Stealths didn't come out when the regular 2.0 line did. Am I remembering a few month gap, or is that something else?
  8. In case you haven't seen it yet, they do offer "wedge flex" shafts separate from the iron shafts. I put them in my 54 and 58, and they're basically S300s. Tourspec had them. I wouldn't recommend them _more_ than an iron shaft; do whatever. Just want to make sure you know it exists. Good luck.

  10. As mentioned above, I think this as well. To be clear though… it's a patent, so it's not going to be super-clear. What does appear clear though is there is going to be an insert through the base of it. It'll be very interesting if these will be removable as the other caps have been with a torx. It's an answer to the PXG external screw weights, and I'm super excited for this.
  11. @stevechooster Mate, good call. Let me tell you what I can. I've played the recoils. I played the prototypes, so those were the non-counterbalanced options. They felt like a lot of graphite shafts do; soft feels. The protos were nice because I don't get along with counterbalanced shafts -- which up until recently, many graphite options were. It makes sense; graphites were light for the intent of speed, at the sacrifice of a little dispersion. Recoils did a pretty good job, and I'd still say they're good shafts - but with the caveat that they can be very spinny. I think they were awesome, and I still have one in my Rapture 2iron. Based on your experience, you're spinning the hell out of them, and losing distance because of it. They do feel like "nothing" if you hit them purely, but I didn't mind that - I had them in S55s and those weren't exactly butter-soft. MMTs are not going to feel the same as Recoils. Recoils will be more boardy. The MMTs are going to feel and play like steel, but the main difference to me is that it does not transition the energy up the shaft and into the hands/arms on contact - particularly un-clean contact. This doesn't mean you'll feel "nothing". It's different; impact will feel a bit different because you're not getting the immediate torque and vibration. So definitely expect 'different' than steel. Less, but not nothing. I can certainly tell 'how' I hit it by feel, but it took a month to dial that in for me. That may have been injury related, but once I got back to it, it went from alien to normal quickly. DM me with anything specific. It's hard to describe as words, but I'll do my best.
  12. That’s the Alumicore patent. Looks a lot like the 59.
  13. It pings the remote every two seconds. You'll see the green pulse on unlock. If the cart is out of range, the cart stops. Note that if the cart is out of range, you are a fool. It's a huge range. If it's more than 20 metres from you, you're doing it wrong. If you want to try it, go up your local par 5 from the block, and send it full speed. At some point, it'll stop.
