KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The CG is aligned with each loft’s impact position.
LOOK: Simply the best -- timeless sports-car styling with modern, sculpted sole grinds; composed, minimalist setup.
FEEL: Top-notch -- soft and responsive; with articulate feedback, it writes an essay on every miss; stable and head-heavy with a dominant thump through the sand.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Emphasis on "control" -- totally dialed-in, with grooves that dig into the ball; shots end up where you want, regardless of lie.
PLAYABILITY: Highly specialized tools, with a grind for every swing, shot and style of play; a shotmaker’s dream -- a dozen ways to hit your number; launches how you want it to, from sky-scrapers to low skippers; lob wedges are all-star acrobats.
It can intimidate some high-handicappers; with so many grinds, it can be a process to figure out the best one for you.
BOTTOM LINE: Another year, another place on the podium. The SM6 raises the standard again for better players, with options to suit a wide range of golfers.
