The right shaft, head, and even grip size and it is almost a miracle if you can find that combination. Or maybe you just had the unfortunate experience I had of taking a divot with a putt in the final of the member-guest. Whenever time to kill I go hit the newest drivers on the gc2 at my local GolfTown ~147 ball speed avg. Moreover, the driver has a second layer of adjustability as the player can tweak spin and launch angle without changing the loft setting. It features the bright Mizuno Blue crown but shape is classic. Meanwhile throwing out the botttom outlier there is a 4yd difference in yds offline or 7yds if you count the worst performer. I Quite enjoy it for what it is and am glad the mgs guys took the time to do it — regardless of how perfect or imperfect it may be.Next
I wonder if that was deliberate or an oversight. The biggest one of them is called the driver. That leads to high-launching, low-spinning drives and great ball speed — even if you miss the sweet spot. The key this year is to find the right combination of shaft and head to help you improve your score! I recently had the Taylormade Jetspeed and Wilson Staff D200 drivers. But next year you could improve by holding tests indoors and out with and without robot testing, using different compression balls, different shaft options, different length shafts,all the while incorporating the top 3 winners in each category from the last 3 years and then break your results down by further defined subcategories for both handicap and swing speed? I then tried the FlyZ+ and with the weight in the forward position, and 10 degrees of loft The spin came down almost 400 rpm and I picked almost 10 yards. They recently launched R15 is smarter and more forgiving than any other driver of this company.Next
From simple goals like: more distance, higher trajectory, want to hit a slice, etc. Maybe the Equipment Hot List is different? It is not for the average golfer who just wants to hit it long and straight most of the time. Callaway and Cobra both have 3 on the list. Prior to the test results I had been testing almost every driver on this list. Doing our part to help the golf industry stay profitable.Next
R15, 460 cc, 278 yards total Most important: find shaft best suited to your swing. Also, manufacturing of drivers is getting right to the edge of being too hot for the rules. Japanese golf equipment has become more accessible and affordable thanks to the weak yen currency. The Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 has 9, 10. Four of the six are rated top-100 club fitters in America , while the other two Modern Golf and True Spec Golf are top international club fitters. I tried the Fly-Z, and was blown away.Next
Nowhere was this more apparent than with our higher swing speed players. Your arms do not hang freely from your shoulders through the stroke. The question I have for you is…was it worth it for you and does it influence your buying decisions? With the Kurokage shaft, it flies great! But if you look at what is listed they have multiple drivers tied for 3rd place. I am not even a fan of Tour Edge and they are a local company by me and to me this test is a bunch of malarky. If you have not updated driver in last 5 years, any driver in your study will increase driving distance.Next
Getting the right length helps deliver the putter more consistently. For some like Hopkins and Scratch, it was cool just that they made the list. It belongs on this list of our top drivers. Again b4 anyone jumps on my case, I truly love this site and its my favorite by a long shot, but these 3 things are eeerking me! The weights are more forward, now you have 2 weights instead of 1. Many other excellent offerings this year; Titleist, Callaway, Cobra, etc. It is day 2 of Hot List email that I got from Golf Digest.
I needed to bump up a loft to get an ideal air time. Depending on who the testers were, some might not be fit for the correct shaft, some testers might have an issue with looks or setup. Forgiveness considers things like how well a driver maintains ball speed on off-center hits. You should expand it a little. For example 'artificial -turf' will return results containing 'artificial' but not 'turf'. Bio Cell drivers were one of the best driver that I have tested in our stores.Next
As you know, there is more to a driver purchase than just raw numbers. R15 430 cc size — 293 yards total 2. First of all, 1 why are there 11 Gold award drivers and only 3 Silver awards? I was able to download the averages in text format for low swing speed case, but not the others. Putting your money where your mouth is often is a lost art. Lets shut it down now, make the readership happy and call it a day. Yes during our fitting, the original G30 drivers just gave too much spin and shafts can only do so much. This is a club that you have to try! Buying a new Driver every year to yield such a small incremental advantages might not be worth the money.
I was still getting some high spin numbers even with my slow 95 mph avg. The Speed and Pro do not come with the full adjustability that the Flex provides but is a great combination of classic looks and solid performance. Simple, the club is right for him. So I visit the Cobra website the day this data comes out and guess what… My Golf Spy logo is all over their page! Congrats to all involved in bringing this data together and to life. The softening adjustment made the driver extremely smooth in the downswing as the clubhead is gaining speed.Next
