- Where the THP Tour Van Takes Us!
I believe each of the last few Srixon releases including this one they hit stores in January. TaylorMade and Callaway, Ping and Cobra did as well. Titleist always goes a bit earlier, by a month or so.I may be mistaken but I thought Srixon is usually late fall and Callaway/Taylormade at the PGA show at the beginning of the new year.
I totally understand the geography aspect. If we use PGA Show as a barometer of product at retail, it is middle of January each year.
This specific line got some early buzz because it hit the USGA and Japan earlier than normal, since it was in some tour players bags, but similar retail date in the midst of winter.
I have to wonder if they are still considered a ball and iron company to general public and how to overcome that.
