Great podcast. I really enjoyed it!
Two quick points to share…
As a Midwest golfer, I’m interested in the durability of the face in cold weather conditions. This new face on the Stealth shares a lot of technology with composite baseball and softball bats. Those bats have shown a tendency to fail in cold weather conditions. Obviously, not a concern if you live in SoCal or Florida, but something to watch for in colder markets.
Like a lot of golf products, what happens out on Tour will play a major part in the narrative game. I think your middle ground scenario is most likely, but the success or lack there of from certain TM players could easily cause the narrative ark to bend towards either the worst or best case scenario. Definitely adds some intrigue out on Tour, especially on the west coast swing and the lead up to the Masters.
