UPDATE:

I am a 14-18 Handicapped, on a slow day on 4 holes, I hit 1 Original 4 piece KSig, 1 New 3 piece KSig, 1 Pro-V1.

Results are ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, NO fricking difference worth noting,,

Par 3-  160 yards , 7 iron, all 3 within a radius of 17-20 Feet
Par 4- 3 wood all in fairway within 5 yards
Par 4 - Driver, 3 piece on right side of fairway, other two 15 feet in the rough, right side.
Par 5- all 3 stayed in fairway, about 260-265

Winner? Ksigs, because during the rest of round, I hit a couple in deep rough and did not feel like spending any time looking for balls ( I have 16 dozen 4 piece and 8 dozen 3 piece) ,, so I tossed one in the first cut and played on,,,, wont do that for $40 a dozen Pro-V 1's !!!!!! the sleeve I have were given to me.

My unscientific conclusion? Unless your a low single digit golfer, its a physiological.

Hehehe :)

Again, this is an unscientific test, your results may vary:

Test balls: KSIG 3 Piece and SRIXON  Q-Star Tour.

When hit with a 9 iron, the SINK rate into a green-side pond is IDENTICAL !!!!!!!

Nothing can beat DP4s thorough testing of the sink rate at Arrowhead last year.

Not disputing your findings but a more thorough test is needed. You said there was about a six yard variable with a 7 iron. This is a decent amount but expected. Take a sleeve of identical balls and try to get all three within six yards with a 7 iron. Iíve done the same sort of testing at times. Teeing off with two different balls. Sometimes ball A won, sometimes ball B won. It takes a lot of testing to come to an accurate finding.

Driving through Palm Springs to get somewhere, and they had the most amazing Costco there in Palm Desert. The 3 Piece readily available, along with CBX wedges ($100), Taylormade Spider ($170), and Callaway Rogues ($300)

Too bad they don' stock the same things in my local warehouses!

Only once, third ball a Noodle, hit 3 feet from hole, easy 6 !!!!

Wait, does that mean noodles are better than Ksigs AND Srixons on par 3's with water hazards  ?!???!?!?

I don't have nearly the swing to validate any tests,,, be great if someone with a iron byron would do a test,,,

I really like the 4 piece K-Sig. I played a 3 piece this week and I swear it was quite a bit shorter off the driver.
