Wow. So over half of The PGA tour are high handicappers?

And you didn't offer me the chance to take a few swings with it? I'll introduce myself next time. Although WRXers are easy to spot- craning our necks to see what gear you are using

Apparently not of Hex dimples or the iTrax putters either....

Give me a White head at retail with forgiveness and low spin like the Anser and I'm yours. The more I think about it, the more Ping's lack of adjustability and shaft tips is becoming a big peeve. I'm really close to a white driver head.

"Jaws"... Looks likely Callaway lovers won't be able to bash the name; at least that's a plus
[/quote]

Hey, you got something here. Callaway has not possession of this name? No trademark?

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.

In your opinion, who is doing a good job right now? If PING and TaylorMade are awful then I'd wonder who is? Dead serious with the question too, not being a smart...
[/quote]

So because said guy comes in and says he wants to buy a whole set of RBZs, dropping a stack as the kids say, they should question their marketing campaign?

Who cares about the name as long as it performs. I play the TP5 and will not go back to Titleist after playing the prov1 for many years. My Pentas don't scuff or cut like the prov's do and I can actually use one ball for a full round.but in most cases I put a new one in play especially in tournaments. I don't see why people are fascinated with distance and not accuracy. Key to scoring is being accurate and controlling your golf ball not being 1 club longer...

Agreed.

Why I ditched V1X for Z-Star XV myself. I plain just hit fairways and targets. Harder ball to sidespin, irons drop n stop, and wedges you get used to the release.

I miss the greenside ProV1 bite, but the XV is consistently longer because it is straighter. Win.

As always I will expirement with all the new balls. Curious about this one, but there's something to be said about how I seem to always find my tee shots with the XV, even on poor hits. And badly struck irons rarely side spin out of control.

You know what would be the freakiest thing for Taylormade to do? Offer one of their new drivers with a decent shaft for less than $400!! That would be freaky for any manufacturer to do these days I guess. While we're on it, I wish "destination" golf courses could get their freakishly high green fees down too! I'm done. I feel better now.

I've heard it has a 70" long shaft......when you start your backswing, you have time to run to the deli and get a breakfast sandwich before impact....

Haha TM's names are freaking hilarious. It really is just to the point of clubs are all about the same, it's the marketing that makes the difference. Jaws? really. hmm wonder what the catchphrase will be. O my gosh I just Jawed it!!!!! or A club that hits it so long, you thought the club just ate the ball up!!!@!@ JAWS. or we could always go with the classic "[size="2"][color="#333333"]You're gonna need a bigger boat...."[/color][/size]

They're introducing new irons. I'm 100% sure that this is the announcement. I got it right from the TM rep when he was visiting my club-fitter (as I was in the shop at the time). The only thing he wouldn't give up was the new name of the irons.

Can't be. The name is already used for the CCM hockey stick they made in partnership with TaylorMade.

No. In hockey it is branded ONLY as RBZ. Not Rocketbladez. I have one of those, too
