I'd say P790 and G400 (specifically G400 max)

Titleist TS2/3 have also gotten a ton of attention.

Among my playing partners and in our local stores. Ping doing great business apart from putters. TM selling the odd driver, some irons and loads of putters. Callaway doing great on all fronts...apart from hybrids. Skechers and UA are doing huge soft goods business. Cleveland has died due to the RTX3. Wilson doing surprisingly well on putters, low end wedges and shifting a lot of balls and bags. Nobody around here doing much with Mizuno despite their tour success and great irons and nobody stocks PXG...

Good topic. G400 max has been mentioned a lot. Have it and crushed some last time out. I didn't miss a fairway while playing 9.

I checked the tm790 thread and a lot of guys mentioned distance control and short iron issues.

Drivers: M3/M4 w/ Twist Face, G400 LST/Max

Fairway woods: None are really "hot" but Callaway introduced JailBreak Tech into their Rogue fairway woods. Also G400's are great.

Lots of attention given to "driving irons" this year w/ P790 UDI, GAPR, X-Forged UT, Mizuno Fli-Hi, etc.

Irons: P790 have had all of the buzz this year. Distance + Forgiveness + Aesthetics were all spot on w/ this offering.

Wedges: as usual, Vokey SM7 is the best out. Raw TM Milled Grind could've been but they castrated that release with no customization options and limited selection of lofts.

Putters: Scotty Cameron repackaged old ideas and talked people into paying $400 for them. Odyssey put a red dot inside of a halo and said it helps w/ alignment. Taylormade took the wings off the Spyder and made something even uglier. Bettinardi stayed irrelevant. Ping probably made a new anser idk honestly, maybe even a new Craz-E (hope not). Cleveland made a Huntington lineup that should be available at your local WalMart soon.

I tried Vokey SM7 and Wilson PMP wedges this year, and couldn't get back to the RTX3 cb's fast enough.  Everyone is different though, that's for sure.

Agreed. I thought rtx series including 3 was actually reason people think Cleveland is still a useful wedge maker

g400max 8.5* | PX Hzrdus Black 75 6.5
f8+ 14.5* | Black 75 6.5
f8 18.5* | Black 75 6.5
tour preferred UDI 3 iron | testing Black 105 6.5
MP5 4-PW | TT DG X100
hi-toe 52*9, 58*10 | TT DG X100
hi-toe 62*5 | KBS hi-rev 2.0 115
X3 Red or Newport 2

3 iron vs. 62 wedge is a game-day decision.
