I really hate to argue this without seeing the NG mag first, but from what I read on the NG website, these clubs may use weightplugs (as Orlimar does), but they are definitely NOT weighted like Orlimars. NG seems to be going for a different weight distribution than what Orlimar is going for. Also, the ratio of clubhead height to length is considerably higher (based on my observation of the graphics at the website) than what I've seen on Orlimars. That means the clubheads are taller or shorter (or both) than Orlimars. So they may indeed have a lower CG than the earlier generations of NG clubs, but that doesn't necessarily mean these are "low CG" clubs.

Bottom line for anyone considering clubs, don't plunk down your hard earned $$$ based on what I and others here are speculating about clubs none of us have even touched. Wait until you get some of these in your hands and can try them for yourself. They DON'T look like they'll feel or play like Orlimars to me!!
