    After a weekend with both the Cortex and Rozwell, without question I preferred the Cortex. The clear differentiator for me was tighter dispersion and a little higher trajectory. My Epic gives me a fade when I swing easy, and slice when I try to swing hard. At first I noticed the exact same thing in the Cortex with neutral weighting on the range. I didn’t plan to change anything as it was similar to what I’m used to, so I liked it. I was skeptical that moving the weights would do anything because I never saw big changes in moving my Epic weight (it’s the Indian) but I decided to move the 8g into the heel. I was shocked. I took a few normal easy swings and everything was going dead straight. I swung hard at a few and they kept going straight. Not sure how much of this was a product of the Fuji Atmos Tour Spec Blue Stiff shaft, but the combo of the two were fantastic! I have hit a few other drivers (JGR) that have eliminated my fade but they all seemed to set up very closed, the Cortex looks great (neutral) at address! It was hard to get a read on distance because we were on an unfamiliar course and I wasn’t hitting side by side with my Epic, but from rough yardages I didn’t notice any major differences. However, the Rozwell seemed a bit longer when I really connected, but had a slightly lower trajectory on most shots.
    I am praying that the Cortex pulls off a W this evening because I seriously fell in love with it.

      I am rooting hard for cortex. That’s purely a selfish reason as it was just perfect for me.

          It is nothing like the M1. Where did that idea come from?

            I do understand your comparison, however, they are night and day different!

            I don't know anything about the technology in the TM, and I probably couldn't tell a good story about the technology in the Cortex either but we all had a conversation with Rich about the engineering and testing of the Cortex. Bottom line, the Cortex works.

            Like someone mentioned above, we've all had adjustable drivers that haven't given solid/believable feedback after adjustments. That just isn't the case with the Cortex. Here, put the 8g weight in the toe position and you're neutral, in the heal and it's draw bias; TRUE! The results speak for themselves. At one time I did own an M1, and I did not get the ball flight feedback I did get from the Cortex.

              My initial thoughts on the Cortex:

              Ever have one of those days where your swing is just a bit off and the harder you try to “force it” the worse it becomes? Yep, that was me on Saturday. I can say that the torture test of the bottom half of the driver, by that I mean the bottom quarter of the face and the first quarter of the sole, went extremely well.

              When I swung the Cortex properly, I saw very good results. The ball flight was straight or with a slight draw and with my normal 200ish yard carry. As I mentioned earlier, I wasn’t swinging particularly well and I found the forgiveness to be better than I expected/deserved. Of the two, I preferred the sound of the Cortex which to me was a touch deeper in tone than the Roswell.

              Regardless of which driver is selected tonight, they are both great drivers that I will be happy to game.

                Really good feedback so far guys, you’ve got me pretty excited about this one to the point that I kind of hope it wins tonight. I originally was pulling for the Roswell because I thought the technology was extremely cool, but it sounds like this thing flat out performs and I’d love to be able to give it a shot.

                  I agree with Sposey that it’s nothing like an M1. It has movable weights and carbon fiber to reduce weight but what driver doesn’t?

                        The tech is cool in both drivers, it's just more visible in the Roswell. Having hit both, I will honestly be happy with either one. The both are really that good.

                          The bias weight track was toward the face on the M1 and didn’t really do much, which is why they moved to the Y track in the M3 where you could put the weight back and left or right. Which is more along the lines of the weight placement of the Cortex and much more effective. So those results don’t really surprise me when comparing it to the M1.

                              This makes sense as I also had a ‘16 M1 and didn’t see anywhere near the results that I saw when moving the Cortex draw bias weights.
