I played them for the first time today. Very hard coming from my P2 build to another build. The P2 are built to an E1 SW and a very high static weight comparatively. By the end of the round I was starting to dial them in.

Would rather hold off review for another round tomorrow.

I wanna say that the ones I had seen for sale, prior to buying the ones I got, were through the roof.  When I considered that I was getting 4-P and a 52/58 combo coupled with the attractive Yen to Dollar.  Also not having to pay for a shaft or assembly labor the price became way more reasonable...

That is some serious good bit of equipment there, Steve. Never really liked the looks of the newer Roddios (as I didn't like the looks of the Quadra Fire Express). Too colorful imo. But looking at theses, I don't think they look too bad now.
How do you like the Chapter2s? I am really liking them.

The look is definitely not for everyone, but for the most part I manage to only see the head when swinging so the color scheme does not bother me that much.  For sure I would prefer something more understated, but such is life and I don't fancy dropping another.

The Chapter, I think have taken the top spot in UT land for me.  Soft as "frozen butter", to steal a phrase, on good contact and they go the right distances.  Trajectory and stopping power are also very nice with these.  The Type S were my all time favorite over the original iBrid, but the Chapter 2s gave me everything I preferred the Type S for and a more compact head.

Absolutely agree. They feel great. The first time I took them out, I wasn't sure as I was not hitting it properly in the middle. Therefore, I was not getting the best feel nor the proper distance. I will say that they are not the most forgiving ute out there though.
But once dialed in, I even find them quite long.

You're to agreeable Shacco, there is little point in arguing with you.  We need Squirts to chime in about how thin the face is and that he cracked a couple of them before switching to something meatier...

Brought back the PDG for a spell...  Shafted them up with the Recoils and put on some A50 Star grips...  They are short but deadly accurate.  Now if I could only learn how to aim my golf shot, I might actually score well...

Someone else asked and I realized I was asking the impossible of you. So instead of punishing the edgolf, I figured I would just post the pics...
