New Driver Hot List
I like to think that I’m the kind of golfer that gets comfortable with my clubs, continuing to play them year after year. Well that’s not exactly the case, I love to get new clubs. There is no better feeling than having that shipment arrive, it’s like I’m a kid on Christmas again. The anticipation of waiting for them to arrive can be so excruciating, but when they show up – what a day! You want to go out to play with them no question, but you almost want to just hold them, making the occasional air swing or waggle. Keeping them in absolutely pristine condition for as long as you can, which is never that long. This goes out to those who know the feeling I’m talking about, all of you just waiting for your new custom clubs to be shipped and everyone that was looking to go get fit for the latest technology which would instantly have you hitting bombs 20 yards past the rest of your foursome!
Here are some helpful reviews to occupy your time until the comes when you can get out to test and get fit for that NEW driver!
Titleist Ts1/Ts2/Ts3 & Ts4 Review
Last year Titleist reinvigorated its driver line with the fast, thin-face designs behind the forgiving TS2 and adjustable-weight TS3. This year Titleist added two new models to reach a wider audience: the TS1, Titleist’s lightest driver ever, and the ultra-low-spin TS4. Boasting 40-gram shaft options and a slight draw bias, the TS1 serves the moderate swing-speed crowd who haven’t always considered Titleist an option. All four drivers in the family feature the company’s lightest and thinnest crown, plus ultra-thin faces that are 100-percent inspected for maximum flex.

Callaway Mavrick/ Sub Zero/ Max Review
Callaway’s new three-driver family builds on the artificial-intelligence platform of last year’s Epic Flash. Those previously unimaginable variable- thickness face contours have been improved to bolster distance for three head styles and player types. The standard Mavrik—Callaway’s most ambitious aerodynamic design—has a raised rear skirt to enhance swing speed, and the face and deep center of gravity work together to produce consistency in distance

Taylormade SIM/ Max/ Max D Review
This combining of forgiveness and aerodynamics stretches across the three SIM driver models. The SIM version includes a 10-gram movable weight track to dial in degrees of draw or fade preference. The larger faced SIM Max is built for more forgiveness while the lighter SIM Max D is higher-launching with a built-in draw bias. All three models include a deeper, cut-through slot in the sole to improve how the face flexes, particularly on low shots. According to the company, the new variable thickness face structure, the latest iteration of the company’s inverted cone shape, now has expanded the area that produces a spring-like effect near the USGA limit from the size of less than a dime to that of a quarter.

Ping G41 Plus/G410 SFT Review
Even though Ping’s new family of drivers has a model with an adjustable center of gravity (G410 Plus), the line retains its extreme stability. This means your mis-hits will be nearly indistinguishable from your center strikes. One key feature is a weight-saving, super-thin crown designed with narrow support veins like those on a dragonfly’s wings. This allows the Plus model to have a 16-gram weight that seamlessly fits into draw, neutral and fade positions in the rear perimeter. On the lighter, slice-fighting SFT model, extra mass moves to the heel to help you square the face at impact.
