VERDICT It has an adjustment system that’s as unrestricted as we’ve seen: The 15-gram weight on a centre track in the sole has no set positions. You can place that weight wherever you want along the track for as much, or as little, adjustment in spin and height as you want. It also has a hosel that adjusts plus/ minus 2 degrees of loft or plus/minus 1 degree of lie angle. Those ripples on the sole maintain speed on shots hit a little thin.
COMMENTS (L) It’s super easy to get in the air, it sounds terrific and has that good thud to it. (M) Even the higher-lofted setting had a nice, boring trajectory. (H) The ball is explosive off the face. The sound is crisp and clean.
