http://www.lynx­ 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.
