We tested: (F11) 15° with Aldila Voodoo VS7 and Matrix Ozik Xcon graphite shafts; (F11 Ti) 15° with Aldila Voodoo VS7 and Matrix Ozik Xcon graphite shafts
Key Technologies: Dual Velocity Slots cut into the crown and sole (just behind the face), produce faster ball speeds and a "spring-like effect" across the face, similar to that of a driver. The two aerodynamic slots are designed to increase launch angle and to enhance forgiveness (12 percent higher MOI). The deeper-face F11 Titanium delivers more ball speed and a higher flight than F11 (stainless steel).
OUR TESTERS SAY: One of the top models tested; a category leader for distance.
PLAYABILITY: Tendency is to fly higher than most fairway woods; high launch leads to butterfly-soft landings; 3-wood is very easy to sweep off the deck.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Off-center hits sacrifice little in terms of distance or direction.
DISTANCE: F11 delivers the goods – quality strikes generate as much as 10 more yards for several testers.
FEEL: Good propulsion off the clubface; the wide face feels like one big sweet spot.
LOOK: The "crown slot" functions as a helpful aiming device, which makes it easy to set the face down in a square position.
Some testers find the cutout on top to be visually distracting and hard to get used to; high launch and flight could lead to potential problems on windy days.
$199, graphite for F11; $299, graphite for F11 Ti
