Good Driver
 from Cincinnati, OH,  Feb 2, 2012

I ordered this driver in mid January and it arrived a few day's later. No problems. This is the first Driver I have purchased so I don't have a lot to compare too. Keep in mind I am a 12 handicap who has been playing with a set of powerglides that I got for a Christmas present when I was 19. Played with a set of tommy bolt blades and wooden woods before that so modern equipment comes as a bit of a shock to me. I have always been pretty long off the tee even with old equipment, but I was in disbelief how far I could hit this driver. I am a person that keeps track of numerous statistics such as gir, putts, fairway % and driving distance. I am trying too improve and am very honest with my game. Most people who don't hit the ball as far as me tell me they average driving the ball between 250 - 300 yds or more. They are all lying, especially considering very few pga tour pro's average 300 yds. I am capable of hitting the ball 250 - 300 yds and have hit drives over 300(down hill, down wind helps!) but my average including all mishits is about 235 yds. I I took this thing out to the range and wow. had a few shots that I was carrying 235 and rolling out to 250 in muddy conditions with crappy range balls. In dry weather with a decent golf ball your talking 250 plus of carry and possibly rolling out to 300. The club is very light weight, looks good at address and swings effortlessly. launch angle was higher than what I am used too, but with that kind of distance I will deal with it. As far as being forgiving I would have to rate it lower than my old driver. My old driver had a flat long sole and could take a shot off the heel or toe and still put the ball straight down range 200 yds. Not bad for a miss-hit. This driver is not quite so forgiving, if you hit it off the heel or toe, its gonna be a poor shot. But if you can hit it consistently, it's gonna go a long way. Keep in mind it is winter and I have only taken it too the range, so I have not had a lot of time too adjust too it. Like I said at the top, I have not hit any of the new drivers out there and this is my first 460 cc driver so I can not compare too others, but for the price, I think this thing ought to do the job.
