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.
