Forum Thread of the Day: “Driver vs Driver 2”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day is from NixLix26, who began the thread dedicated to Wilson Golf’s reality TV show that pits driver designs against each other. The second season is in its final stages with just three designs left, and the show which airs on Golf Channel on Tuesday nights has generated a lot of discussion amongst our members.

Here’s a look at what some of our members are saying about the show, but make sure to check out the entire thread at the link below.

  • Golfer_1993: “I like Cortex. Like Kyle Maze (Cart Barn Guys) said, the adjustability is simple to understand, and I like that. Plus the sound was amazing, and all the testers got good carry and total distances. His performance has been great in the last three episodes.”
  • Mtngolfer1: “The Cortex was the longest driver of them all even with the lower smash factor it was a clear distance winner.”
  • RichieHunt: “That brings it to the Magnus and the Cortex.  I thought the Magnus clearly outperformed the Cortex.  Higher smash factors and remember, it tested the best out of any driver on the Iron Byron testing in terms of accuracy, particularly off the toe and the heel.  Hard to beat a driver that has the best smash factor, doesn’t spin like crazy and is the most forgiving and accurate.”

    Wilson does make a good football, but that’s about it.

    This show confirms that Wilson has no idea what they’re doing when it comes to drivers. Just another reason NOT to play a w/s driver. If the clowns off the street are coming up with better ideas than Wilson’s r&d, there’s a big problem. It’ll be another huge failure like the last dvd show.

    Time for pros to go back to mid sized drivers then companies can go crazy on new drivers for amateurs. Personally I don’t know anyone who buys a driver because there favourite pro uses it anyways. Should get rid of driver wedge amount for pros though. Maybe the tour could even have an event allowing illegal equipment on short courses. Really though extending courses is getting silly.

    So bottom line, Wilson’s R&D department is looking for clowns on the street to design their new products because in the end, its is only a cosmetic change because the USGA rule limits OEMs to no longer improving performance results? That’s why there has been nothing delivering better performance results in equipment the last 5-7 years….

    Sellers be sellin!

Forum Thread of the Day: “Your last ever set of irons?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Nickc who asks fellow WRXers what they would choose if their next set of irons were the last clubs they could use. Some of our members mention a range of different irons which they would love to splash out on, while others choose between a set of clubs already in their possession.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • cfasucks: “If I had only 1 set to play with for the rest of my life it would probably be my 845s. They are great feeling and forgiving when I’m not at the top of my game, and they’re built like tanks.”
  • kekoa: “At this point, I’d have to choose Seven MB’s. At a price tag of about $4,000 4-PW I wouldn’t be able to afford another set.”
  • bodhi555: “That would be my VR Pros, as they do everything I need an iron to do. Feel awesome, let me get away with not being precisely on the centre of the face, look great and seem to go as far as some distance irons I’ve tried.”
  • Lumberjack627: “Think I’m going to get 790s, and that would be it for me.”
