We tested: X/Pro: 3 (15Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â°) in Fujikura Speeder Pro, LD/F: 3 (15.5Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â°), 5 (18Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â°), 7 (21Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â°) in Aldila NV-F, LD/M Offset: 3 (15.5Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â°), 5 (18Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â°), 7 (21Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â°) in Aldila NVS-M graphite shaft
Company line: "The deeper profile of the LD/F allows for a lower and further-back center of gravity (CG) and higher moment of inertia (MOI). Speed Pro has a traditional top-down profile with square-to-open alignment at address and neutral weighting."
Our Test Panel says: Catch it perfect and you're a stud; these are built for explosive
Distance; quite forgiving and difficult to slice-poor swings get respectable results; less enamored with look and feel.
Excellent forgiveness. The offset model is great for those who slice!Jim Esther, 20 Handicap
