WHAT WE THOUGHT

“The pattern on the crown is a little off-putting initially but the forgiveness on even big mis-hits is extremely impressive. If you need to hit fairways or struggle with a slice, give this a go.” JoW
“This sits nicely – much better than you’d expect from a mass-market club – and I love the sound. Undeniably forgiving.” MT
“I don’t like the marbled crown but I do like the performance. I felt like I couldn’t miss.” DM
