KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The cup-face design creates a larger sweet spot on off-center hits.
PROS DISTANCE: Average to above average, definitely not short; good overall distance; catch one on the screws and it flies down the fairway with most other drivers tested.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Fairly easy to hit straight—heel/toe strikes don’t lose much; this reliable gamer finds the short grass a good percentage of the time; covers up directional misses nicely.
FEEL: A little lighter than some other models but pretty pleasing at impact; a very good, stable sensation all the way through the swing; satisfying all around, even on misses.
PLAYABILITY: Mid-trajectory flight works well for most players; surprisingly simple to turn over for extra distance; not hard to hit the shots you want.
LOOK: Beautiful black paint job and classic shape a hit with most testers; sets up great, like an old-school driver; expensive and tasteful appearance.
