If you thought the company was done making serious drivers, the should make you think again. It was my personal pick to win the entire competition. At the shop I hit 6 or 7 different clubs and after a good 90 minutes I walked out with the G25. See the putter comparison … A club class of its own, the wedges have high lofts, the short shafts, and the heavy clubheads. Our goal for this, and every test we do remains constant. An even bigger face and repositioning of the center of gravity has created a club ideal for the weekend golfer.
It sounds like a lot of tech-speak. Bought the RazrXtreme last year based on results that started here. They did not have the Covert 2. So here it is, our 2015 Gear Trials: Best Drivers list. Many Tour pros switched to this incredible driver despite being under contract with other golf club companies. A launch monitor can give you all this information.
We test for distance at every swing speed, every loft and every shaft stiffness. Our testers were asked to rate each club out of 10. The shaft is where the performance gains can now be realized. On a driving range with a 80 foot net at the back of the range as a reference; the G25 regularly hit the net about 10 feet down from the top while on a descending arc.

Comfort at Setup Instilling Confidence , 2. In some cases, compromises had to be made between ideal loft and initial trajectory. Thinner, lighter forged face inserts increase ball speed as well as forgiveness, a lower center of gravity reduces spin and the 45 inch shaft improves control — the whole package makes for a better game. What about the golfers who want both? Find out what other features earned this club our Gold honors. The G25, as best I can tell, averaged 240. No matter how well a club is fit to you there could still be a better club available that if fit to you would help.
Golfers could move three weighted bolts around the sole of the clubhead to adjust spin rates, shot shape and forgiveness. Now now you Nike haters, slow your roll. The ratings scaled 1-10 represent the votes of our Gear Trials Panel in each category. A 430cc model,, is also available in lofts of 9. I will say this in Kranks defense….
Never quite sure until you try them on. As part of our Best Golf Drivers Review we assessed over 15 leading drivers currently on the market. They increase perimeter weighting, which adds forgiveness to shots off-center hits, an. So, with this in mind, here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a driver. Even the best need a hand at times.
But this is still a fantastic club, which suits pretty much any player. Seriously…some distance got left on the table. As a long drive competitor this list means nothing to me because your averages are 100 yards under my average. I got a general fitting so perhaps a better suited shaft could have helped. More spin means a higher ball flight so you do not have to increase the loft to get the same ball flight. I hit drives consistently over 250-260 with roll out to 280 and sometimes farther. Golf is unique in that it is a sport known as much for its greatest pieces of equipment as for those men and women who have broken records and won majors yielding them.
We tried to keep our selection pretty broad in terms of handicap suitability, but admittedly, most of the drivers featured below are for low single figure to mid-teen handicaps. They want no variable and bare bone to the facts. If you choose a driver that is optimized to maximize distance for high swing speeds, chances are the ball will launch too low when you hit it and you will lose a lot of carry distance. A custom fitting is recommended. Only the user knows how well the club has rescued a poor strike. The softening adjustment made the driver extremely smooth in the downswing as the clubhead is gaining speed. This club has plenty going for it.
