DISTANCE

One of the longest models in its class; hot across the entire face, including the heel and toe; longer than the previous Sub Zero — it eats up yardage on the course.

 

"Best combination of distance and control — ever."

PLAYABILITY

One of the testers' favorites; shaping fades and draws is a snap — you can call your shot; trajectory can be altered with minimal effort — surprisingly easy to launch high; a few guys smack it off the deck.

CONS

Testers with moderate swing speeds don't get enough launch and spin with the Sub Zero; numerous adjustability options seem overwhelming to some of our panelists.

 

BOTTOM LINE

The top performer in the Better Player category. Stronger swingers can max out distance with the Sub Zero — it's surprisingly forgiving and provides all the feel you could possibly want.
