DISTANCE

Sneaky long; maintains length on misses high on the face or on the toe; impressive spin characteristics lead to a strong combination of distance and straightness.

 

"I'm blown away by the forgiveness. Easily the best of the week."

PLAYABILITY

Consistent performer delivers dependable, mid-high flight; not the easiest driver to maneuver in its class but still workable enough to execute draws and fades.

 

CONS

Sound and feel aren't to everyone's liking; the combination of turbulators and "Dragonfly" scales make for a crown that's too busy for some testers; not quite as long as the longest models in the test.
