    Hey all,

    Just curious if 103 has always been the highest level for equipment.  Is there any reason to suspect that that will go higher?

    There has been at least one L105 driver.  The L99 TM driver debuted at L105 two or three models ago, I think.  After just a month or two, it was reduced to its current level, IIRC.

    Yes but 102 is the highest now and nobody knows the answer to your second question except WGT, but I think it’s unlikely.

    With the introduction of apparel and effects it provides, I seriously doubt WGT will introduce clubs with better characteristics above the current level. I suspect WGT will make a whole lot more money through selling apparel than they would new clubs.

    Thanks- that's what I was thinking.  I won't feel compelled to log on every day just to feed an experience streak past 103, then.  Lol.  Not that the benefits at that level seem to be much of a difference.  Maybe with special golf balls.  Who knows.

    While I certainly could have missed it, I don't ever recall seeing a Level 105 driver. And I have archived some of ScottHope's equipment tables going back to 2016. I never saw anything above Level 103.

    I could have sworn it was 105.  It was only a short time before it was lowered.  Must have been 102 or 103 then.  My mistake.

     

    I wouldn't mind a peek at those equipment tables, Robert.  I've only been playing since last April.  For historical clues as to what might be coming in the future, I peek at everyone else's older clubs and keep a list of them of my own.  I've curated two sets of clubs, one built on 3.7 meter speed, and a second built on 4.4.  There haven't been any good 4.0 drivers or 3-woods since the Nikes.  And there haven't been any 3.0 hybrids since the R15, IIRC.  The lack of high end 3.0 wedges also rules out building a set around the 3.0 TMs.  Bring back the  original CG16's!

    Yes, the R1 (287 rated) was introduced a number of years back at level 103, then later reduced to level 90 something at which point they sold a lot of them; I still use it today. Tried the longer one's (which are not much longer typically) but they did not match me other clubs meter speed.

    Level 93 and 98 I believe, the same stats as my Callaway now also, I think the level 103 was the 289 tho
