TM's product is head and shoulders above everyone else's...their problem is either supply chain or business plan.

Played TM for 10 years at least... definitely don't think the product is above everyone elses.  Agree that they seem to have some business plan challenges.
Their woods are super, irons get a bogey, ball is a double. The game goes in trends, TM's is going downhill, Callaway uphill, Titleist and Mizuno are sitting at a table in the middle playing cards, drinking beer.

The 790 is better than anything in Callaway's stable and the ball is fantastic

I don’t wanna be the bearer of bad news but there isnt a major OEM out there that’s “head and shoulders” better than the next one.

A buddy got his M3 driver about a month ago after waiting 6 weeks for it to come in. 5th round in with it the head cracked after he hit a tee shot. He called Taylormade and they told him to go to the retailer he bought it from. He took it in for inspection and they told him they'd be sending him a new head and quoted him 3 weeks. Hopefully they get it here faster than that because we leave for Florida in a week and a half.

But yours is ill-formed.

There is a lot of solid offerings out from many different vendors.  To say one is head and shoulders above the others is nothing more than myopic thinking based on your own bias.

TM does not own the wedge space, they're not even close.  The hi-toe is a nice product but they're not head and shoulders above anyone in wedges, putters or hybrids.  Drivers I tend to agree, fairways are many different good options, and irons, ignoring solid stuff from Srixon and others from the past few years is just silly.

Last year the Epic caught up to TM, I don't know how the Rogue is.

Now that I’ve read your wise words, I realize that I’ve been wrong. You, as always, know everything.

That’s what you were hoping I’d write, correct?

You can write anything you want it's clear you don't mind being wrong.

All major oem golf equipment is good now, the heads are all made in the same places and the same processes are used to build components into completed clubs.
