C'mon usdm makers...bring me something interesting...
« on: November 04, 2016, 09:11:22 PM »
The whole PXG thing has gotten me hopeful that perhaps their may be some hope for the usdm market...maybe someone will make something I actually want to buy...not real tempted by the pxg quite honestly but if some of the big design/marketing houses started competing in the high end space it would be interesting....c'mon callaway/ Adams/ tmag/ Cleveland/ cobra/ make something really cool!

It's not in the high end price class, but the new callaway epic driver really has my attention. Looked good and the technology sounds interesting.

I will be able to hit it next week, my prediction is the sub zero version end up in my bag.

There's supposed to be an high tech epic iron in the near future as well, but the rep didn't have any more info on that.

Absolutely Awesome... believe the hype here,  I've found more Fairways today than along time, if not ever..

Feel is excellent

Titlest started this year with the C16 line of clubs and now the others are upping the Ante.
The Fusion woods are fantastic in feel and performance. The New M1 looks like it will be a winner as well. While USDM may never equal the  quality of JDM i believe they will close the gap.

Callaway knows how to design a driver, that's for sure.  That epic does look kinda fun but when I think about either the epic or the roddio 385...or some other cool exotic jdm driver I just can't imagine wanting to take the epic...ever...

For the money the performance can't be beat but when you have 5 premium sets to choose from there's just no interest in hitting the usdm...

Maybe if Cleveland came out with a really high quality players / game improvement line...forged and a really high quality finish...copper perhaps...ohh...sure lime a forged 302 only more cavity...maybe then....

That u tube expose of single vs stock seemed to say whats the point except for maybe re shaft all the wedges the same length to hone in spin.

No surprise the5went low its got a7iron shaft in it what wud mre applicable is if they had 7 iron lenght soft and hard stepped to alter Flight that wud  get the 5 in the air and the gap the same distance.

Thats a way more relevant test to me than all 7iron stock shafts

Still dont think its a game changer more over a split set might be interesting 3/4/5/6 in 6 iron with soft/hard steeps accordinly and7 at normal lenghts ,that makes way more sense to me id presume ud get oodles more contral witht the same lenght long irons albeit loose a touch distance ..if that matters????? But ud never sacfrifice control with the scoring irons.

Hittinga3 that sets up like a6 wud be unreal

Interesting concepts...completely changes the physics but would imagine the one length would be more consistent swing because it's only one swing...

Yea thats true on yr long irons but tje wwdges are.never the same  swing. I guess the smae lenght to the 9iron cud be ok but no way id do that with tje wedges

I totally agree the face is soooooo forgiving and the head is low spin too.  High launch and low spin with tons of forgiveness !!!!!  Im bagging this driver right now

That's not tempting me away from my '15 egg at all...it looks fine now but half a season and its fugly...the PRGR is absolutely the longest, most forgiving driver head I've had.  Just suburb with the MAVC...callaway knows how to make a driver but better than the egg?
