Clubtest 2014: Bobby Jones Blackbird

Bobby Jones Blackbird, ClubTest 2014
Michael Chini
Bobby Jones Blackbird Driver

Bobby Jones Blackbird Driver
Category: Game-Improvement Drivers
Price: $399
WE TESTED:
9°, 10.5°, 12° with Graphite Design G-Series graphite shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: Face angle can be switched between square and 1° or 2° closed. The new “cup face” produces a larger, more lively hitting area. Square-to-closed face keeps initial spin down for less side-to-side movement.

PROS
DISTANCE:
A handful of guys describe its length as sneaky long; slight misses with the Blackbird are more than serviceable, although it doesn't supply top-notch distance on pure strikes.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Some testers say it's a fairway finder that reduces dispersion; it provides plenty of help on smooth swings.
FEEL: This one has a good deal of head weight to it and delivers a satisfying sensation at impact; the Winn grip is a good shock absorber.
PLAYABILITY: Easy to hit consistently shot after shot; slightly higher ball flight than many others; the Blackbird produces best results for smooth swingers who benefit from its easy liftoff.
LOOK: It's appealing if you like a more geometric club; a touch of modernity with red piping on the crown and a small alignment aid.

CONS
Some testers want more distance on solid hits; uncommonly loud clank on good shots; not a club for a shotmaker; the flared head shape isn't for everyone.

BOTTOM LINE: Pretty forgiving option that'll appeal to players with smooth, rhythmic swings.

HOT STIX'S TAKE: Launch - Mid; Spin - Low
