I'm trying to gather my words appropriately after viewing those Masters edition WB drivers. First let me blink, my eyes are drying up. Ok. Those are Georgeous!! I'd have the blonde one under my pillow at night. LOL... Thanks for sharing!

Cheers Fred and Rob,

For the persimmon experts out there,

I'm curious as to why you see some persimmons that have the screw in the shaft plug? Not all makes/models have it but most of the WB's seem to. Does it serve a "mechanical" purpose?

Because if we can all hit the ball 350 yards, then we can make courses longer to compensate for the increased yardage, and to do that we need to buy new land out of town to build the new giant sized course, so that the extra 1000 yards in length gives us an extra 2000 yards of golf course fronting home lots (an extra 70 lots!).. because we know that a golf course home sells for more than a home without a golf course.. and we can then charge an extra fee to live in that community for association fees to take care of things..

Those 70 lots x 100,000 is an extra 7 million dollars.. which paid for the barren land 20 miles out of town that people will now have to drive and extra 40 miles to and from town daily which means they might also have to buy a new car. They'll also spend lots more on gas too which drives the economy. If things go well, we can add another 36 hole complex and really stimulate the economy. The water company loves to sell them water, and chemical companies love to sell fertilizer and other goodies.

Someday, we will use up all the available titanium so that will drive the price up.. so start saving those monsters now.
Since wood is a renewable resource, it's not as profitable, and it takes too long to grow new trees... and we wouldn't
want to have to put people to work lathing wood blocks and hand sanding and going through the 58 steps of making a persimmon driver that would require more skilled labor than the mold shop. Skilled labor jobs are way too costly today,
and putting people to work is soooooo 1950's mentality..

Titanium clearly has saved the country...

Looks like the root-of-all-evil gets us again!!!!

I suspect you are more correct than I'd like to believe on this one Lag. No doubt a snowball effect to it.

What a shame,

Holy cow are those gorgeous!! Detail down to the different color paints in the screws. One thing A, what is the grey material surrounding the leading egdes? I would assume that it is to protect the wood from pebbles, etc but is is a covering on top of the wood or a cut away of the wood itself? Great idea either way and never seen anything like it.

The good news is.. I still look down at a nice persimmon, like the Penna I hit yesterday on my way to a 7 birdie (four in a row in one stretch) 6 under par 66, with the Hogan Bounce Sole blades to boot.

All the masses going out to the new jumbo courses is fine with me.. I like less people playing on the classic tracks.. so I can get in a round sometimes under 3 hours. There is always a silver lining... 8-)
