In a mar­ket awash with prod­ucts and hype,

Golf World cuts through the claims to give you the an­swers you need.

MONTH ONE

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.

MONTH TWO

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.

MONTH THREE

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.

MONTH FOUR

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.
