Apparently the LST models will have the CarbonFly crowns and not the Max/SFT.

That seems really strange to me.  Why not highlight it on all models.  I would think there would be an opportunity to manipulate CG on their more forgiving models with a carbon crown and hopefully making them faster.  But, maybe the weight savings is negligible on those.  I don't know.  I am a lot less excited about this release than I was yesterday now haha.  Unless there are some major changes under the hood, it seems like just a 425 with new color scheme (which I do not like).

Why couldn't the metal for a Driver or FW be forged? It's just pressing/smashing metal into a desired shape...

 

Forging the entire body of a driver in one piece with a hollow body isn't possible.  You have to drop forge it in three pieces then fuse it together.  Much easier to cast the body and drop forge the face.

I didn't say one piece forging. I said the metal of a driver as in each component (face, crown, body)

They stuck with the back end lobster tail weight. The 410LST animal-style remains undefeated for stability.

410LST 9º, 3w 14.5º, 3h 18º, i210 4i, Blueprint 5-P, Glide Forged 50/54/58. Ping Tour X, Tensei Blue, and MMT105TX shafts. 2021 Fetch w/ BGT Tour Black. i230s on their way.

If the Max isn't carbon, that's a bummer.

It doesn't have to have carbon to sound good. Titleist and the g400 proved that.

I hope it has turbulators, a half moon,  15 moveable weights, a multimaterial crown,  a sleeve with 35 adjustments, sound like an aluminum baseball bat, a twistface with a layer of spin skin, and I want it to be called supermax tec.  And when I buy it I'm gonna hit it as hard as humanly possible.

 

And I will be grateful that you're in Massachusetts.

You read my mind Dill.  If I may add to your incredible summary, I hope that at least half the 15 moveable weights are held in place by either magnets, or velcro, and that there is a Limited Edition Ping Ziploc bag to hold any weights not being used.  #turbulators #spinskin

Close but not the final product. 

I really hope it looks nothing like this. It’s absolutely hideous.

I dk how I feel about those images. Definitely don't love the look if that's really it. However, with that being said, it's ping, no one buys ping for the sex appeal. Not to mention it's the bottom of the club, so I won't have to look at it. If it performs better and sounds better, then it can be forgiven imo. Don't really understand why they would do carbon for the lst and not the max, but we'll see what happens. Taking all these rumors with a grain of salt.

I have a feeling these images are just photoshops that were edited from the G425. There's no MAX/SFT/LST markings, and the reflections on the chrome bits with a edited balck background to make it look 'studio picture'-esque seem super odd. Either these are edits or were images from the concept stage.

If they're photoshopped, they went to exceptional detail to get the reflection of trees into the reflective areas.

 

Count me as these are real, but maybe not fully final. I bet they're functionally the same.

The black was thrown in intentionally to block out the background, too easy to tell where the photo was taken at. But I know what you mean it does make it look a little sketchy now that I fully look at it 😂

The person I know that has seen them in person told me they were shown pre-production models.

I have zero factual information.  What I'm about to say is pure conjecture.  With Ping always maintaining that carbon actually has a net negative weight advantage due to the shelves and glue I wonder if that is why no carbon on the Max?  The 425LST has actually morphed into the game improvement realm for MOI. You would think Ping could use carbon on the LST and afford to give up some MOI and it still be a great driver. It might not be possible for the Max to be a 5600+ MOI with carbon? 

 

Then again Ping may have done it for cost savings?  Who knows. Guess we will find out in the next couple of months.

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.

      Stealth 2 Plus


       
      Stealth 2 HD



       
      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
