www.yonex.co.uk Lofts: 10°, 12° Stock shaft: Yonex M60 Ad­justable hosel: Yes How much loft change: +/-1.5° TECH: Yonex has come up with an “octaforce” pat­tern to re­move ex­tra weight from the crown and the top of the face, which means more weight to lo­cate to in­flu­ence for­give­ness, spin and launch.

WE SAY: While the big brands have gone car­bon crazy with their lat­est driv­ers, Yonex is keen to point out how they’ve been us­ing the tech since the 1990s. The Elite looks huge from front to back, and be­cause it’s so big it’s not as deep as many of the driv­ers we tested. For plenty of golfers that will mean ex­tra con­fi­dence and much-needed launch. Across three testers the Elite pro­duced ball speeds and carry dis­tances spot on the test av­er­ages, which should be ap­plauded con­sid­er­ing the £199 price.

VER­DICT: All in the Elite’s a solid, light­weight, for­giv­ing driver which in re­al­ity suits a whole bunch of club golfers, es­pe­cially those not quite as young as they used to be.
