OUR TESTERS SAID
Pros
  • "Easy to square up due to the simple head shape and face."—Eric English (handicap 12)
  • "Center contact is informative and powerful."—Kirk Fischer (7)
  • "Crisp and lively; not as muted as their last offerings."—Hoai Hoang (8)
  • "A low, boring flight increases trajectory control."—Lee Neisler (2)
  • "A nice upgrade for Nicklaus users. Decent forgiveness and distance."—Jeff McKinney (15)
  • Cons
  • "Tight lies could pose problems. The best action comes from a slightly steeper swing."—Don Yitterberg (15)
  • "Good, repetitive swings are a must because off-center hits lack much help."—Randy Rochefort (2)
