White Hot XG

pretty nice
I hit them at Golf Galaxy, and I like the insert. The vampire #7 is a lot smaller than I thought it would be. Only 119 so not bad at all. #7 can pick up a ball with the back :golfer: . Does anyone know if a 2-ball will be made with XG? The 2ball SRT isn't even at golf galaxy yet ( I really want it). Why don't they have an XG 2-ball on the way. It seems like they can't make up their minds.

I tried out the #1 and the Rossie models last night at Dicks. Oh my. Now, I'm an insert guy (currently play a Bettinardi BB-23), so I think these feel really, really nice. Very soft but there's a nice responsivness to them that isn't quite there on the whitehot or the whitesteel. I loved them. The only slight problem I see w/ the line is that it seems like they tried to do some different styles, a little edgier than traditionally. That's could be fine, but I've been thinking about which one I would get and I'm not sure if I really like any of the new styles. I might just go with the familiar Rossie style. I kind of like the look of the new #2 also, but haven't seen it in person yet.

i'm in the same boat as you, i tried out the newer styles and felt the inserts were fabulous and felt real nice but the 'edgier' desgins really seem to lack something, i'd rather see the insert on a newport/anser style or phil's putter come to retail.

I rolled a few today with a couple of them and I think its going to be a very solid selling insert putter line. The insert has a really nice feel to it, very unique. You should do yourself a favor and try one out. I want one, but I am going to wait for the two-ball model to come out. They have nice grips as usual and pretty neat headcovers.

I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the #1 XG. The most traditional look, obviously, but still with that great feel of the new insert. Love it.

 

In relation to the G2 and G5i- These XG inserts are "springier" if that makes any sense. The

Pings, to me, have a nice soft click at impact. And I like the G5i quite a bit. But these XGs have a soft feel and are so responsive. It's like you can feel the ball contact for longer than other inserts and then there's a definite releasing of the ball. Feel is so hard to explain and different for everybody, but if you haven't tried on out and are at all interested in inserts, IMOP you're missing the boat.
