TECH: Com­pres­sor Tech­nol­ogy Re­sponse Chan­nel means it of­fers ex­cep­tional per­for­mance from even the worst lies. A rear­ward CG po­si­tion pro­motes a high launch.


A fan­tas­tic head shape, a great blend of wide body for­give­ness all wrapped up in a shell that for lots of club golfers will be a con­fi­den­cein­spir­ing size. For two testers, though, it was the high­est­spin­ning hy­brid on test, and that robbed it of carry dis­tance. In the real world it’s not re­al­is­tic to ex­pect a club that’s half the cost of one of the long­est on test to com­pete, so it should be no sur­prise the HTX posted a 4mph slower ball speed and a carry dis­tance 14 yards short of the test av­er­age.

VER­DICT: The shaft and grip are great qual­ity, but with ma­jor brands spend­ing so much more on R&D there seems to be a bit of a gap be­tween top tour brands and the smaller com­pe­ti­tion. Great club at this price, though.
