Testers’ comments

JW: I struggle to flight the Tour head so for me the Performance head is a better bet and I get very good results off this.

JL: I do not like the tick on the crown. It’s not for me, there’s too much going on. I prefer the Tour head but it’s still too busy and I can’t get past that.

DM: First thing: it sounds great. I like the smaller head and, surprisingly, I don’t find the swoosh and red crown off putting at all, so that’s not a factor. There’s no doubt you lose a touch of forgiveness but that’s inevitable. It is low spinning, as it should be.
