  1. I absolutely agree. It is a really bad image for a sponsor to be related with a person that doesn't have a minimum of respect for the game, his peers or even himself. After his last incident ruining the greens in Saudi Arabia, he should have been banned from the European Tour as an example... In the same event while 'killing' the sand of a bunker after a bad shot you could clearly hear him saying the worst things about caddies while his own brother was the one carrying his bag... There are many videos in YouTube compiling 'sweeties' like spitting into the cup, throwing away his shoe or his clu
  2. I recently challenged my trusty fairway Cobra KING F6 Baffler 16º (loft checked) with a Callaway BB OS hybrid with also a verified loft of 16º. The shafts are very similar with a Proforce V2 66S in the fairway and a Proforce VTS 75S in the hybrid. Length difference is just 1/2” shorter for the hybrid (the baffler was only 41.5”). I started testing both at the upper floor of the range to visualize the landing spot of each hit and then playing with both in those holes of my home course where I normally use the fairway. Here is what I found: At the range: - Fairway flight was a bit higher
  3. I did not find the driver I tested during the fitting, to be draw bias or fade bias at all. I got the chance to hit 50+ drives and I was able to move the ball slightly in both directions without much effort. In fact I found the club to be so predictable and forgiving that I ended up ordering one... Have a great game.
  4. Titleist 905R, TaylorMade R7 Superquad TP and TaylorMade R9 Superdeep Long of the tee, beautifully shaped behind the ball and much more forgiving than what you would expect from any of them. Have a great game.
  5. I think they look fantastic. They are clean, have a great finish and the cavity design is well thought with a bar behind the hitting area that most likely will give it a more solid feel and the lines that can be cosmetic or change the sound... I have to admit that I am biased: I like Ping clubs and I owned a set of RAC LT II (much closer in looks than the OS) and loved the design, the feel and the forgiveness. Have a great game.
  6. Ping B60 Isopur. Through the years I've had many different putters but only the B60 and the Anser shapes worked better for me so I ended having a small collection of them that I now use in a rotation. Have a great game.
  7. The first rule of the "2017 Model" is you don't talk about the "2017 Model." Then, what's the point? :no2: 23 pages and counting, with pictures of bags, headcovers, dinner menus and the great Roger Cleveland and no talking about the new equipment... Don't take me too serious cause I'm probably missing something here, but from a marketing/sales point of view if there is not going to be 'epic' buzz, it might seem as a missed opportunity...no? Have a great game. They can talk about the performance all they want - just can't name it or take any pictures of it. This is probably just one

  10. I will definitively get a B60. Does anyone know how the face looks like? Grooves like in TR or milled like in Vault series? Have a great game.
  11. I had the chance to compare today my i (E1) 8 iron vs the iblade 7 iron. The reason is that my 8 iron is bent two degrees to 34 and 1/2 inch longer and that matches exactly the iblade 7 iron with standard lenght. Needless to say that the shaft is the same in both clubs. I agree with tobiasjd that there aren't great differences except in feel. Here is what I found: - Ball flight: slightly higher in the iblade - Distance: very similar with perhaps the iblade being slightly longer (2-3 yards) - Forgiveness: the same. Mishits travel the same distance. - Dispersion: I don't know why and this is
  12. Maybe the next iE irons will be called iCavity, iMid or iM-size to align it with the iBlades and the new glide wedges (iWedge)... :drag: Whatever they do, I really like to see Ping doing so great in every club category and not 'killing' their releases in less than a year. I also agree that the clean lines of the Glide Wedges and the iBlades look stunning. Have a great game.
  13. This is to update the information of my original post. After 10 more rounds with the driver, one thing has changed and other it has been reaffirmed so far. I am still finding much, much more fairways than before. Not all of the ones played with the driver, but I just miss one or two per round and I always find the ball... :D I am now clearly getting more distance with this driver than with my previous one. I can confirm this because of the places from where now I play my second shot. It is not massive distance but I am sure that is at least 10-15 yards more. The fairways are not harder c
