In a market awash with products and hype,
Golf World cuts through the claims to give you the answers you need.
My custom-fitting data was off the charts – an average smash factor of 1.5 showed how efficiently the club was converting my club speed into ball speed off the face. This gave me huge confidence as I took it onto the course, which translated into good performances where it matters.
One of the most efficient driver heads available.
I’m a member at a very tight, tree-lined course and the inch shorter shaft certainly helped me control the ball and get it in play. I’m generally a better iron player because I compress the ball. I found this club to be excellent if you’re not someone who naturally hits up on the driver.
Very effective if you hit down on the ball.
I got so confident that I would hit the fairway that I went chasing extra distance to keep up with the Epic’s power. Unfortunately, this had the adverse effect and I started struggling off the tee. It’s extremely stable and forgiving but you will still hit poor shots with bad swings.
Not quite as powerful as Callaway’s Epic driver.
A renewed focus on getting the ball in play off the tee enabled me to play to the strengths of my own game and the Fusion’s technology. The efficiency and accuracy returned and I was able to groove a consistent and surprisingly long fade that’s helped me bring my handicap down.
Impressive consistency from a variety of strikes.
