Honestly, I love that some of you guys are rooting hard for one or the other tonight, pretty freaking cool IMO.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 do understand your comparison, however, they are night and day different!
Interesting on the M1 results as the adjustable weights are heavier than the Cortex.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.
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.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.
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.Interesting on the M1 results as the adjustable weights are heavier than the Cortex.
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.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.
