You might get 1M+ views if you go ahead and show what's under the skirt boss! Haha

Let's see the goods first and then this topic will be Nuclear- just like all 8 spots of the face I can hit without mercy!!! Haha

 

I think Cobra claimed the same things years ago with One of their drivers! Try another marketing claim that us old farts don't remember unless you want to lift up that skirt now! 

 

This is all in fun so don't flame the skirt talk- how about kilts for the ladies to be PC as well!

Hike up your skirt a little more, and show your world to me...

Honestly, I might spring the extra cash if they let me customize it with the sim blue.  I love that cyan metallic color.

Looking that route myself.

The red carbon face seems ridiculous.  How will it hold up with 1000s of swings with +120mph clubhead speed?  Will it hold up in cold weather?  Will small grains of sand that routinely find their way onto golf balls affect the durability of this face? 600 bones for a sketchy composite face?  I might stick with my OG Sim

It is the sand on the ball (hitting on the range) that will be the test.  

As a young caddie, I saw a lot of pitting of the graphite faces on the Yonex driver & irons back in the 90’s

That’s what I was thinking too. Hopefully the TM R&D crew have come up with a durability solution.

This carbon face rumor makes zero sense to me.
 

Club manufacturers have literally spent 25 years maximizing the rebound effect of metal woods.  I just don’t see how a carbon face can produce the rebound effect that metal faces rely upon to produce ballspeed. 
 

Carbon is very light and strong but is not elastic by its nature. How could this possibly work?  I am very curious about this club. I will believe it’s a carbon face when I see it.

If I had to guess, it’s probably infused with a small amount of carbon. 
Why?

 

Because Taylormade.

There's no way it's all carbon. It has to be infused with steel, just like the rest of the club. Has to have some.metal infused somewhere or it would be super light.

Must have some kind of protective coating i would imagine.

The so called “trampoline ” effect has always been overrated in my opinion. You can get smash factors of 1.5 with 20+ old drivers hit dead flush. Im guessing this has to do with alot of weight savings, allowing it to be very high moi, without sacrificing spin like many of the other high moi drivers out there. Hence all the ball speed and dispersion claims across the entire face.

Can’t attest for sandy balls but I can say that having seen one hit 100s of times with clean balls that there was absolutely zero proof that it had even ever been hit. Pretty amazing actually. 
and having dealt with their warranty department daily I can say if there is one golf company I ever was going to take a chance on with the fear that it might break and need to be replaced it would be TM. They replace almost everything.

As did I. I also played the Yonex Driver and fairways for two years and while they pitted a bit, they never failed. I had a buddy (fellow caddy) who was gaming the Daiwa Carbon irons and he gamed them for a decade or more without a failure of any kind.

Yeah one of the biggest golf equipment companies in existence didn't consider any of this at all. Really blew the whistle on this one. 😆

Yep. Good call. Time to put this hair-brained idea on the back shelf.

Based on the issues the with the M5/6 and Sim carbon soles cracking I would hope they’ve done their homework.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
