CG & MOI data for USDM Drivers
« on: March 15, 2018, 08:17:37 AM »
Stumbled upon this article while researching forgiving drivers last night.
https://mygolfspy.com/mygolfspy-cg-driver-locations/

It includes 2015-17 drivers. Hopefully 2018 data will be published soon.
Wish that some JDM data could be generated and thrown in there too.

If you like a particular driver, this data could help you narrow down your next driver by looking at the nearest CGNA (CG relative to neutral axis) vs MOI cluster / quadrant to your favorites. Conversely, it you hate a couple of particular ones, try something in the opposite quadrant.

This is similar stuff that I was going thru recently on a Japanese blog site.  
Though Tony Covy's version is a bit harder to comprehend.  

Here is the link:  https://ameblo.jp/motuchian-pro/

In this Japanese blog, he goes and measures all the CG figues and makes an assessment on how the heads behaves together with recommendations on the typical swing type the head could work or not work.     This is the resource I used to decide on which driver to try ( and ended up with Cobra LTD )

I also have a booklet that came with a Japanese golf magazine from a few years ago which lists CG dimensions of most drivers in the last 10 years or so.   Some boutique brands but not all.    Really interesting to compare the numbers of heads!   

DR: Modart MA01D+R / Diamana W
FW: Modart MA01F / Diamana 'Ahina
UT: Modart MA01H / Crazy STP
IR:  Epon AF-505/SUS316 / Modus 125
WG: MG S-01 / Modus Wedge 125
PT:  Ping Vault 2.0 CRAZ-E H ( in trial mode )

Thanks for sharing the Japanese blog site.
One thing that is missing is MOI data to make it directly comparable to the MGS data, unless I'm missing that or it can be calculated from the other data he provides.
This one in particular I'm interested in:

Love this stuff. I have a Callaway GBB and an XR Sub Zero with 4 different shafts to choose from and a shit load of different weights. Both are at different sections of this chart. Bring on the test......
Driver: jBEAM Glorious 10.5* + Motore VT 7.0x, 45.5", Superstroke.
HY: Fourteen UT716 1i/3i/5i + Thump h90x, 39"-42", Superstroke.
Irons: OnOff Forged 6i - PW + Accra Tour Ti Mesh, Superstroke.
Wedges: Epon Tour 51*/57* + Accra Tour Ti Mesh, Superstroke.
Putter: Rife Barbados, Garsen.

One thing I got from reading the article is to tee up the ball inline with the vertical CG. So for the SZ, tee it low for best results.

Fun Stuff!!!
Iíll be testing the King LTD with the stock Rogue but have a Fuji Evo IV to try as well.  My first Cobra driver since the S3 from about 7 years ago...  that was a good driver.

I'm preparing to do my own shootout with 6 clubs in the "high MOI, med/high CG" quadrant:
- Ping G
- '17 M2
- Cally Fusion
- Fly Z
- 915D2
- JPX EZ

Now if only the rain will stop...  arghh!

Jeezzz this XR SZ is a belter. Shafted with a Kiyoshi HB 65. Swapped around a 9g and 5g front to back and well, just a rocket launcher. Can't wait to get it on a course. Surprisingly forgiving.
Driver: jBEAM Glorious 10.5* + Motore VT 7.0x, 45.5", Superstroke.

The Fusion should win this.  I was amazed at how low spin and STRAIGHT this club was and it was highly overlooked due to the Epic craze that landed shortly after it was released.

Just goes to show that itís 90% Indian vs Arrow. My good results were few & far between.

I'm thinking more like 97% Indian 3% Arrow but most Indians prefer going into battle with good arrows...

Hahaha nice one Harry. Look at it as a jdmesque driver from the usdm world. It's very possible that know one will have one at the club you play at, just like jdm. ⛳🎌🇺🇸
