    SO.... The big question I have, " Whats the maximum distance a " Pro V1" golf ball will go before the driver or golf ball deforms" 800, 1000, 1500 yards?

    Would have been cool if you guys did it with different quality drivers. There are massive structural differences in golf drivers. You guys seem to have used a wilson of some sort, which would be the lowest quality driver and no doubt would fail at a higher rate like that than say a taylormade, ping, or callaway driver. Im absolutely sure a better club with a much better quality professional shaft would not fail in that way. The materials and metal alloys these manufaturers use vary at such a high rate but i worked in the industry for 20 years and there is absolutely a difference in strength and performance of equipment. There are even differences in the balls. Also, Is it a 2-piece, 3-piece, or 4-piece ball...?

    NASA should justvuse pressure cannons for rocketsvlike this. It saves fuel, time, and money. More to support my arguement, it is stupid fast.
