Lofts: 9-12°

Stock shaft: Fu­jikura Pro 60 Ad­justable hosel: Yes

How much loft change: Eight set­tings from 9-12°

TECH: Three sole weights can be in­ter­changed, let­ting you swap be­tween ei­ther a low-spin, pen­e­trat­ing tra­jec­tory, for­giv­ing high flight or a draw bias. A shot­track­ing sen­sor in the grip lets you record data for ev­ery drive.

WE SAY: At a time when driver prices have sky­rock­eted, the King F7 is re­mark­able value for money. All three testers agreed the com­bi­na­tion of the squashed, wide head and lively Fu­jikura Pro shaft gave the im­pres­sion of the F7 be­ing re­ally easy to hit, which is a great place to start when pick­ing a new driver. It ba­si­cally of­fers three driv­ers from a single head, which is re­ally clever, and means it can be set up for a wide range of golfers. The F7 pro­duced one of the long­est single shots of the whole test (289m carry) which proves it’s no slouch.

VER­DICT: A se­ri­ously good driver, ir­re­spec­tive of price. Throw in the fact it’s US$257 less than other driv­ers and you can see why we’re such big fans. The abil­ity to track your drives and look at the stats via a free app is the ic­ing on the cake.
