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!

  • Weston11: “Absolutely beautiful!”
  • Scotty1140: “Sweet putter. Definitely inspired by Tiger’s Newport 2. Needs a bit more of a bevel on the trailing edges from address IMO. Always love a tri-sole. This coming to retail? Would like to roll this.”
  • Wdwfreak: “Bring that one out, and you have a sale. I like that a lot.”

  • OSpreyCI: “PXG 0811x Driver. Thank you fam bam.”
  • Aviador Naval: “Two hours of time with my son hitting balls and practicing short game on a day with beautiful weather. As an empty nester, that is 1000x more valuable than anything material.”
  • Kingcat990: “Took the father in law golfing, and we posted some horrendous scores. Had a great time piling garbage on the scorecard.”
  • Gautama: “New golf shirt and shorts, and got a surprise treat in a tee time for the whole clan on a little executive 9 hole, par 33 course. First time we’ve done it…my wife, my two sons aged 22 and 18, and my two daughters aged 9 and 6. The whole course was crawling with groups like ours… Not the fastest round any of us have ever played, but very fun.”
  • granata10: “New ping hoofer golf bag. It was needed and wanted.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best budget driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Ivyguy who is on the lookout for the best driver to be had at an affordable price ($300 or less). Our members give their suggestions, with plenty of different drivers getting a mention.

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.

  • tbsbama: “Cobra King LTD is a wonderful driver. The pro model has lofts from 7 to 10 with fade settings. The regular from 9 to 12 with draw settings. Both heads are absolute bombers and can be found pretty cheap. Best driver I have hit in several years.”
  • zzyzxx33: “I won a Tour Edge EXS Driver, and it has been Awesome! Great Price, Look, Sound and Results! It’s longer than anything else I’ve hit.”
  • AG12: “I would say the regular PING G400…you can get new for $300 on PGA SS website, ’17 M2 is a good choice, and the M4 can be had at under $300 used in most shops.”
  • Badshaft: “I have the F8+ and bought the extra weights off of eBay (inexpensive, shipped from China)- 12g front 7g back- Blue Tensei 70g stiff. Longest for me – straight and as accurate as anything. Nice well-balanced combo. Looks to me it has the same moveable weight strategy as the F9.”
