What older drivers should companies bring back? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing classic drivers that they would like to see reintroduced to the market. WRXer ‘mvhoffman’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“If you could choose an “old” driver for companies to bring back and revamp with today’s technology, what would it be?

I would love to see the 2016 Nike Vapor Fly be brought from the dead with some different materials adding stability to make it more playable today and be able to stand up to today’s drivers.”

And our members have been sharing their picks in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Mike_C: “Original Ping Rapture, I thought at the time it was a real leap forward. Bridgestone J33 460. Maybe the best-looking and best feeling Metal driver I have ever owned. And long, just not super forgiving. If you could make something look and feel the same and add some forgiveness, I would buy it in a heartbeat.”
  • Ger21: “Nike VR Pro LE. Or the Z745 I’m playing now.”
  • ForeRight82: “Nike VR Pro Ltd. Edition. Loved that driver. I still have the 3 wood, which I also love. Sound, feel, etc. Everything was great. Maybe I’ll have to pick up another used.”
  • manima2: “I cannot believe there are three pages here and not a single mention of the GOAT… the 2016 OG M2. Would love to see how that head would perform with a carbon face.”

    We should go back to Wood. Or at least go back to driver heads at 200cc max

Spotted: New Kirkland Signature KS2 mallet putter

Published

on

A new putter from the Kirkland Signature Series has been spotted.

After making headlines by creating a line of drivers and irons to be sold at Costco, Kirkland has seemingly jumped into the putter game as well. As shared by “theequipmentjunkie” on Instagram, the putter is a mallet style.

Costco is currently being sued by TaylorMade for the Kirkland Signature irons and claims “the iron’s design infringes on several patents tied to the company’s popular P790 iron that has a similar hollow-cavity design.” TaylorMade is also claims the product makes “false and misleading statements in violation.”
