The IQ was straight but when I switched to it from my R7 TP, I literally lost a minimum of 15 yards on almost every drive. The IZ is every bit as straight and WAY longer for me.

The iq is stupid straight. I've heard the claim the iz is as straight, but longer but never tested the theory. I think I might have to.

I agree about losing some yardage, but I made the switch to the Razr Hawk Tour with a Fubuki and it bombs the ball about 20-25 yards further, so I haven't been bagging the the FT IQ lately and I haven't lost much forgiveness. But that FT IQ is a fairway hunter for sure!!!

What's really the problem? If you're REALLY having accuracy problems (OB, Hazards, woods, lost balls), then it's probably a swing issue and/or a course management issue.
60% of fairways is not a problem, though. There are worse games to play than "bomb & gouge".
But, there's a big difference between 60% of fairways, and 40% OB versus 60% of fairways and 40% rough.

You should give them a shot,i am biased(not denying that)but,the DXI hybrids,woods and driver are very solid.I dont know how but,the DXI driver just goes straight,its not the longest but its not noticebly shorter than the others,maybe 5-6 yards.
Just like Ping should give Mtljeff his 7.5 G15 head, Wilson should, at least,
give you something special. If I ran Wilson Golf, I'd comp you a full bag of
anything you want. Listening Wilson?
Oh, and I forgot to add my 2 cents. The K15 won't win a looks contest but it
does perform. It was hard to look at after my Rapture V2 and it is a few yards
shorter........but I am getting better shot dispersion. The looks don't bother me
My nephew has the FTIQ with the Fubuki and loves it. He bought a new G15
earlier this year and doesn't use it. That's how much he loves the FTIQ. I did
hit his FTIQ, after he asked me a few times to hit it. It does perform, but the looks
and sound of it are so different from what I'm used to it felt like culture shock.

Weighting has nothing to do with helping the golfer square the face...but yes, the k15 hits a straight ball.

I've had my head handed to me by Jaskanski a few times, so please believe me
when I say that I'm not wanting to start an argument in which I am likely outmatched
by a scientist/engineer with far more technical golf knowledge than I have.
I am repeating what Ping has stated and I am paraphrasing by memory. Essentially
Ping says weight is moved to the heel to increase club head rotation in order to
help square the clubface. Also, in other statements attributed to John Solheim which
I can't verify, the clubhead tends to rotate to square and stay there, i.e. doesn't rotate
to a closed position.
You can, of course, manipulate any club with your hands. What they are talking about
from what I can tell is "natural rotation".
What do you think of Ping's claims? Are they legit?
