Lofts: 9°, 10.5°, 12°

Stock shaft: Yonex EX310 Ad­justable hosel: Yes How much loft change: +/- 1.5°

TECH: A car­bon com­pos­ite crown re­moves 8g of weight which has been re­lo­cated lower and deeper to pro­mote a higher launch­ing and for­giv­ing ball flight. A heav­ier head is teamed with 20g of tung­sten pow­der in the end of the grip to cre­ate a counter-bal­anced ef­fect.

WE SAY: There’s no doubt the XPG looks easy to hit. There’s a ton of loft, a wide­body de­sign and some clever crown graph­ics that dis­guise how big the body re­ally is. It filled us with con­fi­dence at ad­dress as we re­ally fan­cied our chances of hit­ting the cen­tre; it’s amaz­ing how easy it is to hit some­thing you can ac­tu­ally see! It launched and peaked shots out above av­er­age for all the driv­ers tested. Throw in just 3.5mph drop-off in ball speed be­tween cen­tre and off-cen­tre hits and we’ve got to say it’s a for­giv­ing and playable driver.

VER­DICT: Yonex might not be ev­ery­one’s first thought when it comes to a driver, but the XPG of­fers de­cent per­for­mance, es­pe­cially at smoother tem­pos.
