Key Technologies: Variable face thickness and a "full compression channel" (which helps transmit more energy to the ball at impact) create a hotter clubface and increased distance. The club's variable sole camber reduces turf interference from all types of lies.
OUR TESTERS SAY: Good performers that provide a healthy dose of versatility and attractive looks.
PLAYABILITY: Slightly smaller head and railed sole are a good combo out of rough and tricky lies; capable of shaping shots and altering trajectory; a few testers find it tends to produce a lower flight than others.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Solid strikes yield precise shots, off-center hits are covered up reasonably well.
DISTANCE: Respectable yardage in line with testers' own sticks; a few faster swingers get more distance.
FEEL: Quite stable through the swing; enough feedback to distinguish between a center hit and a miss.
LOOK: Compact, clean shape is a hit; smaller head fits testers' eyes well.
Lower-than-optimal trajectory for some testers; not the most satisfying feel on solid hits; several guys want more length.
