No one has mentioned the new irons...?  ;-)

If the new regular G400 is the highest MOI out of any club, how much more can the Gmax really be???

About 850 g-cm2 more.

I would like to hear more on the new Vault Putters.
So far there will be another Voss, B60, ZB, and my personal favorite Dalehead Anser. Satin, slate, and a new Copper finish will be offered. Really excited for the Dalehead Anser in copper, and yes it’s actually called the Dalehead Anser. Not just Anser.

Oh no. That means two more B60s for me, the Vault version and the Sigma G version (as long as the Vault one makes a nice sound off the face).

Damnit.

Any additional info on the GMax driver ?  
Bonded ? Adjustable ? Loft options ?
I'm in need of high loft but don't need the draw bias. Fingers crossed this might be an option for me.

Yes, but I want 4 iron thru PW in Eye 2 casting with XG grooves!

Ah that makes sense! I thought you wanted a set of wedges!

I also want a release of a full set of Eye2s with the XG grooves. I'd be tempted to move to those immediately.

I'd say that to Mike Tyson's face if he said the Glide 2.0's were "ungodly hard feeling". Well, maybe not Mike Tyson. I actually would just stay about 100 feet away from him at all times.

You should try hitting them again, with tour balls if you didn't the first time.

Ping had a series of wedges the Tour S that were 8620 carbon steel instead of their usual 17-4 ph stainless. They didn’t feel any different than the harder material which is probably why they went back to the 17-4 and eventually 431 in the Glides. Their CTP seems to give the wedges the feel as opposed to the material..

+1. In fact, I would say feel is a strong suit of the Glide wedges. I love the sound and sensation on a centered hit.
