    Thank you captain. I have enjoyed your reviews of flash as well.

    For me the cortex has been excellent. And you know what a club Ho I am and the fact I have not ever thought of buying another driver (with all the amazing new releases) says a lot about how I feel about the cortex.
    I am excited to hit the red regular flex shaft some more tomorrow.

    Hey JB, how is the cortex doing sales wise? I am sore they have slowed with other new releases coming out but are sales still on pace with the sales Wilson wanted?

    Weather finally cooperated and I had my lesson yesterday. My fundamentals had fallen apart.

    Driver was the focus of the lesson. Once my instructor managed to get me back on track I was actually hitting the center of the face!

    When we started with the driver I had him hit the Cortex. He commented that really liked the feel (ball flight looked great, as expected). After my lesson he asked if he could hit the Cortex again. Each time he said "I really like this". Not the @sposey013168 giggle but close.

    I played yesterday in our first tournament of the year. I hit 2 of 14 fairways with the Cortex with V2 shaft installed. The two drives hitting the fairway were not long but they were straight. I will have to go to the range next week to see if I can dial it in. As you know, I have struggled getting this driver to work for me, but I continue to use it and try to dial it in.

    As a fan of Ping, there is no question in my mind that aesthetically the Cortex is still on top for 2019. Happy to report that my Cortex isn’t in danger of being replaced anytime soon.

    With the G410 coming in at $540 the folks at Wilson don’t look to crazy anymore. It also makes the folks at Exotics look really smart.

    Had a full round yesterday with the Cortex and am seriously stoked on how well I swing this driver. Played with a buddy and a couple random's and one of the comments I heard was "that sounds interesting". Maybe I'm used to it but it does have a distinct noise when I was striking it well. They did love the look of it and were unaware of the Driver vs Driver show so it was cool to explain it to them and let them check out the driver.

    My buddy just picked up a brand new Triton and was interesting to compare our results and sound, very different from each other obviously but still a great driver put out by Wilson as well.

    Yeah, TEE can convert a lot of players who want the features and benefits but can only do so much with the technology or have a budget that doesn’t extend to $500. All of these are great clubs and shows the level manufacturing has gotten to with clubs.

    I never owned the triton I could not get over the sound. How did the triton compare cortex on length? Triton was long when I hit it

    Being the P and L geek that I am, I would love to have the $$$ numbers on the clubs. Total cost to produce including R and D and advertising. And then have total sales numbers and see who made out the best on strictly profit.
