CARL’S VERDICT

FORGIVENESS
Much better than you’d expect. Off-centre hits go unpunished. 19/20

DISTANCE
I don’t know if it’s the strong lofts but they come off like a rocket. Seriously good. 19/20

LOOKS
Excellent. Big enough to help confidence but small enough so they don’t put you off. 19/20

FEEL
They fly off with a click – not the most reassuring or solid. 14/20

VALUE
I think most  equipment is overpriced and even though I loved these I think they’re way too expensive. 12/20

OVERALL RATING: 83/100
