Distance

Very consistent — most misses fly just as far as center strikes, so your buddies won't know when you mis-hit it; considerable adjustability unlocks a few extra yards.

Playability

Adjustability is the story, and the available options have a profound impact on ball flight — it might be the ideal club for fixing your swing flaw du jour; you can order up curves, but it really shines as a point-and-shoot fairway finder.

 

Cons

A handful of testers don't see the kind of bombs you brag about in the grillroom; the F7 does everything pretty well, but for a few panelists it lacks the "wow" factor; a couple of guys want a bit more creativity/ shotmaking ability from it.

Bottom Line

If this one were a ballplayer, he'd hit for high average. The King F7's a fun, über-reliable driver that sets the table for your scoring clubs. And at $350, it delivers the bells, whistles and high-tech touches at the lowest price point in its class.
