LYNX BLACK CAT
http://www.lynxgolf.co.uk Lofts: 8.5°-12.5°
Stock shaft: Grafalloy ProLaunch
Adjustable hosel: Yes
How much loft change: +/-2°
TECH: Weight can be moved to the front or back of the clubhead to adjust launch and spin conditions. The Black Cat has a sleek head shape with matt finish, available in black, blue or red.
WE SAY: The Black Cat is the best driver Lynx has made for some time. The deep face won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re looking for a sensibly priced, powerful driver with a reasonable degree of forgiveness, you’ve found one. Both our test pro and Simon posted some of their longest drives with the
Black Cat, right up alongside the premium models. A change of 1.5° in launch angle, 5mph of ball speed, 300rpm of backspin and 12 yards of carry for our pro by switching weight from back to front proves that not only does the tech have an impact on performance, a low and forward CG can help a particular type of golfer.
VERDICT: It really is a cannon. Try the Black Cat against a couple of premium alternatives this year and we reckon you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
