From Golf Magazine (Buyer's Guide, May 2009)

It's for: All skill levels

Tom Morris, Principal Design Lead Engineer: "We take our signature large face and combine it with a light carbon crown and sole insert to move the center of gravity (CG) so low that 70 percent of the face is above the CG. This is significantly more than most drivers and ensures high ball speeds to optimize launch conditions over a large face area. We always design drivers to maximize distance and accuracy. With L5V, we've added versatility. It's so simple to adjust ball flight, which makes L5V even easier to hit."

How it works: Single-material (say, titanium) drivers have limitations in terms of the weight that can be moved around the head. This one, however, combines titanium (body and face insert), carbon composite (crown and sole), aluminum (hosel), stainless steel (swingweight screw) and tungsten (screw). L5V has two adjustable face settings. Use a torque wrench to lock the head into the "0" position, which indicates a square face. The "1" setting is 1° closed, which translates to five extra yards of draw-bias. You can also switch shafts (there are three stock and 25 custom-order models).
