All your comments are really funny, but let's try to be serious for a minute :cheesy:
We saw the new Project 5 ball few weeks ago, so "a little thing" would fit perfectly.
It also could be the Juggernaut (OMG what a weird name) that we heard about this summer. I heard the paint scheme would be black and gold, so it could be that. But I guess we will have to wait until October 23 to know.

Probably the new ball they have been testing on tour for quite a while...and don't hate on shaft length I use a 43.75 and carry the ball 285, not bad for only being 5'5. I have been told Serg shaft length is under 43...

Doesn't TaylorMade see that their marketing dept has made the company the source of more ridicule in the market than any other mfg? Whenever I hop into one of these threads, 95% of the banter is mocking and ridicule.

I guess they don't care about being the industry clown as long as it works.

I was in a retailer the other day and saw a guy come in to get fit. He wanted rocketballz EVERYTHING. He had never hit them and was about a 17 capper, but he wanted the irons, the woods, the driver, the GOLF BAG, and everything to match with the rocketballz logo all over it. He couldn't be swayed even though he hit some other drivers better.

We represent probably less than 1% of the golfing world. Taylormade has obviously figured out how to get the other 99% to "NEED" their clubs. Why would they change?

In that sense, TM's marketing machine is working again.

To me "freakishly longer" would be 30+ yards longer. Not 4 or 5 or 10 yards.

Highly doubt it but we shall see!

Yeah, they would much rather of bunch of d-bags on here not ridicule them than continue to sell clubs. Nice observation.

No doubt it works - just look at the sales numbers.

They create buzz and interest better than anyone and they get plenty of golfers trying and buying for this reason. And of course their stuff is quality as well.
