VERDICT The “spaceport” not only looks cool, it saves four grams by removing the need for glue. What’s saved is used for a tungsten weight that’s low and forward to power shots with less spin. Combined with a carbon-fibre crown, this creates a centre of gravity that’s lower than other fairway woods. The CG lines up with the centre of the face for optimal energy transfer and low spin. COMMENTS (L) The head shape suits my eye. It’s easy off the deck, and I had good ball speed on a launch monitor. (M) This club finds that extra gear: The ball just kept rising. (H) Tinkering with the lofts tuned its performance. Feel is substantial.
