TaylorMade TRUSS. Worst Ever Golf Club Name?


Recommended Posts

It's almost like they never do any focus-group testing. They just throw stuff out there and see what sticks. TM always seems to have some absolutely killer clubs in its lineup, but also a bunch of forgettable or regrettable junk. And no company is more comically over-the-top in its product/marketing claims. They're all guilty but TM is the king of Mount BS.

You all are clearly forgetting about the name "Rocketballz."

A truss in this orientation will help prevent damage when you bang it off the ground after the fourth three putt during the round.

The manufacturers are now making up new problems so they can sell the solution. Putter deflection as a result of shaft/hosel instability is next-level nonsense.

could it help some? Sure...

 

but the same .355 shaft is still connected to the head at a single point... sooooooo...

 

Oh... and the CER-VX irons got screenshotted and sent to so many. Thanks for that dynamite drop in. Made my day

We will, the truss will be not visible but built into the hosel and running through to the bottom of the club using graphite/ carbon fiber rods.

If you hit your putt hard enough to twist the face, you should probably hit that shot with 7i instead.

Is it weird that I just bought 2 of them?

Seriously, I can't even get behind this one, and if anyone could it would be me...

A few pros (inc. Byeong-Hun An, Matt Wolff, etc.) are 'gaming' them, but feel it will be short lived. To an earlier post, An was missing everything last weekend with the thing sad to say. In all seriousness, TM makes great and highly regarded putters, why put this out without some serious consultation with serious consumers??

Considering the investment to produce, market and distribute a product in a very competitive industry, seems really questionable.

Your situation is too extreme to be a good example. No company is going to ever name any consumer product after something grossly offensive.

Was able to demo the Truss this past weekend at an indoor shop; the one that looked like and anser. To me, if it works ,the looks are fine. It lays face balance, no toe hang. Standing over the putt it looks like any other anser; no issue with that at all. The issue was I couldn't putt with it. At 8 ft. I would miss 3 in a row over and over left and right with it, switch to a Ping anser style (Sigma 2) and drain 3 over and over, Stroklab #9 drain 3 over and over, face balance Taylor made Chaska same, 3 in a row over and over. The Truss just didn't do it for me.
