"Dave has a simple, repeatable swing and makes solid contact with tight dispersion. He hits the ball high, but his bad shots go too high. The 695CB produced a higher launch angle, but this stronger-lofted set produces a flatter, straighter ball flight, rather than a rising, spinny flight. He hit it farther than with the DCI 962 without sacrificing much accuracy"
