ClubTest 2014: Titleist 913D2 Driver

Titleist 913D2 Driver
Category: Game-Improvement Drivers
Price: $399
WE TESTED:
9.5° with Aldila Tour Green 65 graphite shaft; 9.5° with Diamana S+ Blue 62 graphite shaft; 10.5°, 12°, with Titleist Bassara W 50 shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The club has similar launch and spin characteristics to the 913D3. Variable thicknesses in the forged face lead to faster ball speeds on heel and toe hits. Offers more forgiveness on off-center hits than the 913D3. Will fit the majority of players.

PROS
DISTANCE:
One of the longer clubs in the test; mis-hits travel a good length.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: A real standout -- most testers couldn't miss; quite forgiving but not to the extent that it will pre-program shots.
FEEL: Stable even with a light shaft; connected feel throughout the swing; responsive but not overly hot or springlike; weight distribution lets you know where the head is throughout the swing.
PLAYABILITY: Typical flight is a penetrating, low-spin, mid-high shape that won't balloon; shots fly straight but you can bend them at will; the club performs whether you swing slow and smoothly or more aggressively.
LOOK: A dark head that's all business in a classic profile; lovely conservative design with pleasing lines that don't distract; a traditional visual aid.

CONS
Some guys aren't quite as long on solid hits as they are with their own driver; the head feels a little light to a few testers and shots feel too muted.

BOTTOM LINE: One of the top drivers tested. It's particularly impressive in terms of accuracy/forgiveness, playability and look.

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