Lofts: 3-4/13-16°; 5-6/17°20°; 7-8/21°-24°

Stock shaft: Fu­jikura Pro 65 Ad­justable hosel: Yes

How much loft change: 3° (with three draw set­tings)

TECH: The F7’s Baf­fler sole rails get deeper or shal­lower de­pend­ing on the loft to im­prove turf in­ter­ac­tion from any lie. Two sole weights can cre­ate a higher shot or a lower-spin­ning flight.

WE SAY: Our test pro wasn’t sold on the squashed, wide head as he felt its size was a bit clumsy for hit­ting shots off close­ly­mown turf, and the head had a ten­dency to fall a lit­tle closed at ad­dress. But both am­a­teurs thought the head was an ex­cel­lent blend of size and for­give­ness, say­ing club golfers would be buoyed by the shal­low, wide de­sign. Switching the 20g sole weight to the front made a neg­li­gi­ble dif­fer­ence

(250rpm).

VER­DICT: For am­a­teurs it’s a re­ally good de­sign. Baf­fler rails have been around since the 1970s and while we can’t prove they help you get shots air­borne, they do mean lots of mass is lo­cated very low in the head.
