Some pretty funky names in this test.  Not sure how you can interpret the results but interesting.  Some commentary would be nice.

You're right, the numbers aren't really that useful.  Every rating seems to be between 7.5 and 8.5, they don't tell you much.

It is cool to see such a mix of manufacturers, though. (Callaway, Yonex, Infiniti, TechPower, Vulcan).  I've never even heard of a Playing Pro Spider.

Wow, they have one of the best lists of Golf Manufacturers I've seen:

Maybe the takeaway is that there really isn't much difference between the clubs, other than maybe feel ... ?

Without qualification of the results it's pretty useless.  If they've done a true evaluation, they could supply the raw-ish data.  Otherwise it's a bunch of hoo-haw.

I submitted a Triad II for testing back in 2005, and I found out later that they didn't even supply the testers with the weight kit. The testers must have been thinking "WTF are these holes for"?

IMHO, the primary goal of these testing companies is to make money--not to supply the public with any real information to make smart purchase decisions. They fund these generic tests by selling off all the test equipment, but the real money is made by conducting proprietary tests for equipment manufacturers that have to dough to pay for it. Of course, the results are most likely skewed in a way to give the buyers of that data what they want to see.

Omitting the weight kit isn't particularly surprising. Rankmark is rank.  Period.

Guess Techpower made  mad investmentz this year.
