CATEGORY: Better Player Drivers
WE TESTED: 9° (adjusts 8° to 10°) with Ping Alta 55 graphite shaft.
KEY TECHNOLOGY: Channels in the back of the head minimize drag during the downswing to improve the head's stability.
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."
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.
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.
The G LS Tec driver continues to be one of the stalwarts in the Better Player category. It provides a balanced mix of distance, accuracy and forgiveness that guys can appreciate.
