Big Shots Five technologically-advanced drivers engineered to max out your distance. Nickent 4DX SuperMag $379, graphite nickentgolf.com Lofts: 8°, 9°, 10.5° and 12° Best for: Average players Titanium has been a super-metal in driver heads since the mid '90s due to its relative strength and light weight. Nickent now swaps titanium in the crown for magnesium, which has half the mass. The net effect is an additional eight grams positioned lower and farther rearward (24 grams total in two visible green plugs) than in the existing 4DX driver. This shift creates greater head stability through impact, plus higher launching (by 2-degrees) shots. The 46-inch SuperMag makes a loud, cowbell-like sound at impact.

Nicklaus Dual Point FastBack $299, graphite nicklaus-golf.com Lofts: 8°, 9°, 10.5° and 13.5° Best for: Average players Some big-headed drivers have the tendency to lose shots right of target. Knowing this, designer Clay Long combines size (460 cc; 5" wide x 5" deep) and a geometric head shape to locate the club's center of gravity (CG) for neutral bias performance. You may still scatter shots off to the right, but you won't be able to blame poor CG placement for them. FastBack sets up with a 1-degree closed clubface.

Hippo Hex TX $249, graphite hippo-golf.com Lofts: 9°, 10.5° and 12° Best for: Aggressive swingers Company brass believe the aerodynamic head design (including "V-slot" sole and side slots) should allow you to swing faster. Its geometric shape (with light crown) distributes mass to the rear corners for improved forgiveness (MOI of 5,300 g/cm2). Two rear weight ports (4 grams each) contribute to the club's forgiving nature. Hex TX comes with the Mitsubishi Rayon CP4 shaft. For an extra $50, you can upgrade to the Grafalloy ProLaunch Platinum. Two rear weight ports (4 grams each) contribute to the club's forgiving nature.

MacGregor MT 460 $299, graphite macgregorgolf.com Lofts: MT 460 in 8.5°, 9.5°,10.5° and 11.5°; MT 460 Offset: 11.5° and 13.5° Best for: Average players The pear shape downplays high-tech features such as a beta titanium face insert. The "cup-face" design (it's shaped like a cup turned on its side) eliminates weld marks on the face. This means you get top ball speed across more face area, so mis-hits travel nearly as far as solid strikes. MT 460 has neutral to slight draw-bias weighting to suppress cut shots, while MT 460 Offset suits those with a chronic wild slice. Aldila's DVS shaft comes standard in MT 460.

Tour Edge Exotics XLD $299, graphite touredge.com Lofts: 9°, 10.5°, 12° and 15° Best for: All handicap levels XLD represents the first Exotics-branded club to go beyond the better-player market and is built to help you hit it farther without swinging out of your shoes. It weighs less than most drivers (295 grams total), due in part to a long (46 inches), light (50 grams) shaft. The lively clubface varies in thickness — 3.3 mm in the center, gradually thinning to 2.8 mm along the edges — to bolster COR on off-center hits. Plus, a light titanium crown and pentagon-like shape lead to enhanced perimeter weighting.
