Playability

Strong from the tee, fairway, rough and hardpan; allows you to shape shots; adjustable head can correct for swing tendencies and also tweak ball flight.

"There's no better feel than these woods slugging a defenseless ball."

Distance

Possibly the longest hitter in the test—guys are wowed on both pure and off-center shots; extra length off the tee makes it driver-like.

Cons

Rewards precise swings but may not offer enough help for some high-handicappers; low-profile head can dig in rough; too much feedback on mis-hits for one or two guys.

Bottom Line

One of the best models tested. The 917F2 should appeal to any mid-handicapper looking to combine maximum distance and workability with exceptional balance and feel at impact.
