Ad­justable Hosel: Yes How much loft change:

+/- 2°

TECH: Not your stan­dard draw driver. Sole weight­ing moves to­wards the heel, and there’s plenty of clever tweaks to the de­sign to de­liver an av­er­age of 12 yards of draw bias (but up to 20 is on of­fer if you in­clude hosel adap­tor ad­just­ment) from a head that doesn’t look closed.

WE SAY: As good as past “draw” driv­ers have been, golfers who’ve used them have con­fessed to feel­ing like keep­ing a dirty se­cret! We prom­ise, though, the D-Type’s dif­fer­ent. The face an­gle doesn’t aim left, the de­sign, cos­met­ics and “draw” name don’t scream slicey golfer... and the D-Type doesn’t just work for slicers ei­ther. Simon, who’d never en­ter­tained a draw driver be­fore, re­ally warmed to the D-Type as his typ­i­cal heel strike is right in line with the D-Type’s heel­bi­ased CG. So not only did it feel re­ally sta­ble, it also pro­duced some of his fastest ball speeds.

VER­DICT: The D-Type brings some­thing very new to the Tay­lorMade party. It’s se­ri­ously good for more than just slicers.
