Tour Edge Bazooka HT Max-D Driver

From Golf Magazine ClubTest (March, 2012)

Category: Max Game-Improvement Drivers
Price: $149

WE TESTED: 9°, 10.5° with Aldila NV 50 graphite shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The aerodynamic, lightweight club has a sloped crown to reduce drag (improve airflow) and boost swing speed. The 9° loft has a square face angle while the 10.5° is 1° closed. Comes standard with 50-gram shaft at 46 inches.

OUR TESTERS SAY: Steady yet unspectacular performer provides respectable distance.

PROS
DISTANCE: Several testers get distance comparable to their own driver; a few guys get up to 10 more yards; off-center hits get out there a good ways.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Steadyeddie driver forgives and forgets most mediocre swings and mis-hits; by and large, slices are held in check.
FEEL: Subtle but perceptible feel on well-struck shots and mis-hits; head is fairly stable through impact.
PLAYABILITY: Lower ball flight than most; straight, boring trajectory works well in firm conditions.
LOOK: Large, deep face inspires confidence; glossy black finish.

CONS
Several other models deliver more forgiveness; it’s difficult for some testers to decipher center hits from offcenter ones because of dullish impact sensation; nothing sets it apart visually.
