TECH: A tri­ax­ial car­bon crown is fused to a light­weight ti­ta­nium exo-cage body to free up 34g of weight which is lo­cated low and deep to raise for­give­ness and sta­bil­ity. The op­tion of a 1in shorter shaft boosts your chances of hit­ting the sweetspot.

WE SAY: The Fu­sion is an MOI mon­ster. And by MOI we don’t just mean for­give­ness to help hit shots straighter. More re­silience to twist­ing means you also lose less ball speed on off-cen­tre hits, so shots go fur­ther when you don’t hit the cen­tre of the face. The blunted head shape di­vides opin­ion, but if you can stom­ach it you’re in for a treat. Simon in par­tic­u­lar racked up some great num­bers, post­ing an av­er­age ball speed and carry dis­tance on par with Call­away’s Epic Sub Zero.

VER­DICT: You won’t see a Fu­sion in the hands of tour players as it’s de­signed al­most ex­clu­sively for the club player, for whom its slightly higher spin­ning head and oo­dles of for­give­ness is well suited.
