VER­DICT Last year’s model gets a mat­te­black cos­metic up­grade, but you can tell the guts haven’t changed be­cause there’s still a see-through port in the sole. Not just for show, its 16 grams of weight pushes the club’s cen­tre of grav­ity lower to align with the cen­tre of the face. That makes for max­i­mum en­ergy trans­fer into the ball with less spin. A light­weight car­bon-com­pos­ite crown al­lows for 12 grams of tung­sten deep in the sole to help this clas­si­cally shaped head play more for­giv­ing than it looks. COM­MENTS

(L) The face feels great, unique – hard hit, soft feel. They’re so good at mak­ing stuff look cool and hid­ing the ad­justa­bil­ity. (M) Very for­giv­ing. (H) Easy to swing. At ev­ery point, I felt in con­trol.
