I think they are purdy. Seems like Callaway is on a roll with these, the Epic, signing Rory and maybe even Tiger. Good for them.

Really on a roll. Didn't sign Rory, lost Lydia Ko, kept old double hernia Phil and can't make a cut Yani. Really on a roll...so far kept Reed for his Ryder Cup excellence.

 

Phil is one of the most marketable athletes in the world.

Too much offset for my liking. Puzzled as to why they add that. If you're hitting blades, you don't need the offset.

 

Offset should be added to increase shot height by bringing the CG back, BUT... also a moot point for blades cause most get them to lower ball flight and add control.

 

All in all, looks like they just followed the industry and had no innovation here. Yes it is hard to make a "blade" innovative, but fact is Hogan did it for over 25 years.

 

At least customized grinds, or bounce, or special metals blended for better feedback and softer more forgiving feel (could happen, yet to see)

 

As of now, the most innovative blades on the market are the new Srixon and Cobra King MB utilizing tungsten counter balances and maybe the Mizuno MP-5 due to the channel.

+1 on satin or raw. Seeing these yesterday, I played my mixed set of V-groove X Protos and 2011 Legacy Blacks today. Why did I ever change?

 

Oh, because of PXG performance and beauty (satin)....

 

Love them all.

Something about the neck doesn't do it for me

 

Agreed, not a very smooth transition to hide the offset. Kind of angular, and protrudes rather than blend.
