Last month I was lucky enough to test the new Air Force One N7 DFX driver for GolfBalled.com. The N7 DFX, which stands for Deep Face Extreme, is "Nitrogen Charged" and has a clubface that is 5 mm deeper than the previous version. So what you get from that combo is a club with a bigger sweet spot, reduced spin and more distance off the face.
No two women are alike. So why should their drivers be? If you are looking for a driver that you can make your own, fine tune to fit your swing and the conditions you play in, check out this driver! The Women's Cobra Bio Cell driver introduces innovative technology which delivers functionality combined with style to give you maximum distance and unparalleled personalization.
Named after the most famous artillery piece used during World War I – a cannon., the Original Big Bertha was called the "World’s Friendliest Driver" and was the first widebody driver made of stainless steel. Introduced in 1991, the Big Bertha utilized Callaway's breakthrough design S2H2, Callaway Golf designers were able to shorten the traditional hosel length, which allowed weight to be moved lower and to the more useful perimeter area of the clubhead.
Before we get into the review, please note that this review was done by a good friend of ours who is a + handicap, has a driver swing speed of 125mph and has won 20+ mini tour events. With that said, here is his review on the TaylorMade SLDR Driver:
It's TaylorMade so it's always tough for me to say anything bad about this company. There haven't been many times that I've used something of theirs and not liked it to be honest. A few years back when they introduced the white color, I finally thought they were nuts and made something horrible looking but then I got one and quickly changed my tune.
Pro: Amazing feel, stealthy matte black crown, minimal adjustability, and one of the most forgiveness for any and all golfers.
Cons: Lack of adjustability for some, hard to tell where you have hit the ball on the face.
Overall: One of the best drivers I have hit in a very long time. The ball springs off the face like a rocket. I was able to shape shots fades, draws, high and low were possible with this driver. I was never a fan of the head shape of the Ping G15 but after looking at the upgraded G25 I have to say ping has made a forgiving driver that doesn't look like a robotic pancake. I love the lack of adjustability, simple and stealthy.
It's true, when the first spy photos of the Taylormade R1 Driver "leaked" on the web I was not shy to blast TaylorMade for the over the top graphics on the crown and massive dial on the sole of the club. Let's not forget that this driver is also a "one size fits all" club off the rack too. Like most of you, I was wondering if this was just a marketing gimmick to get new sales or does all this new technology hold merit for the everyday amateur golfer looking for a few extra yards in a new driver.
The Callaway FT OptiForce driver is a 2013 mid-season release for Callaway. They boast it as lighter and longer. In a year that saw probably the best success in Callaway drivers, the need for a 3rd driver that looks much like old Callaway models is well... odd. None the less Callaway deemed it necessary.
