Mark pitted a 2020 Callaway Mavrik super-game-improvement iron against a muscleback/blade from the 1980s. He used a statistician to help, and tested a decent number of shots, though at the beginning he said about 40 with each club, so spread across three types of quality of strike, that's not a "huge" data set.

Is that a good way of approaching this? So far I am interested in Ping G series and Cobra Fly-Z. Thanks for your help!
