VER­DICT A com­fort­ing club for those want­ing to avoid some­thing that looks like it be­longs in a tool­box. The well-pro­por­tioned club­head ploughs through the turf thanks to a pre-worn lead­ing edge. There’s no trou­ble get­ting the ball in the air (even with strong lofts) be­cause of the high-den­sity tung­sten that moves the cen­tre of grav­ity low. The True Tem­per XP 90 shaft is light enough to help gen­er­ate ad­di­tional swing speed that cre­ates chest­puff­ing dis­tance. COM­MENTS (L) The apex of the flight seemed to oc­cur more to­wards the end be­fore drop­ping down gen­tly on the green. Loved that. (M) It wasn’t the best in any one area, but the sum of be­ing good in all as­pects made this a stand­out. (H) The tra­di­tional look is highly ap­peal­ing.
