Performance was given double the weighting when creating the overall mark. The all-new parallel beam design incorporates the flexing to the front of the club without losing energy in the rear. See your local club fitter and test clubs that help you feel more comfortable standing over your golf shots. If you are looking for a new driver, check out our list as they can offer stellar advantages to give more ball speed, distance, ball stability, and air time. Flexes from amateur to tour-extra-stiff are available and each will perform differently in the hands of each golfer. Do not confuse topspin with too little backspin as this can be ambiguous.
Top Rated Golf Drivers Features Drivers vary among brand manufacturers and models. The perfect amount of backspin will give golfers more distance and better control over their golf shots. A better fitting club will give you more distance, more accuracy, and more confidence. The Big Bertha Alpha 815 is also a leader in adjustability, offering golfers complete control over launch angle, spin rate, and trajectory bias.

It can lead to gains in club head speed and ball speed, which of course, lead to more distance. Also, there is a 15-gram adjustable weight to change the center of gravity until it fits into your golf skills. The M4 driver gives players the ideal balance of distance, accuracy, and simplicity. Moveable weight can helps golfers get their perfect launch, spin, and shot shape conditions for their best performance off the tee.
M6 is designed for straight distance and unparalleled ball speeds with an Injected Twist Face and Inertia Generator. The depth and length of the channel help the face flex at impact for more ball speed with less spin. Head Size There many head sizes.

Manufacturers supplied us with an array of lofts with shafts that incur no upcharge at retail from all the 2015 models they wished to be included. Like all recent drivers from TaylorMade, the AeroBurner has a low, forward center of gravity, which helps golfers hit the high-launching knuckle.

These are guides however and should not discourage you from playing a shaft you feel comfortable with regardless of your swing speed and skill level. The Nike Vapor Flex Series driver comes with a single head 8. We then took an average and gave it a rating out of 10 using a sliding scale. Commonalities between different companies and product models can make narrowing your choice of drivers to test easy.
If you believe you are swinging as fast or faster than this but your ball speeds and are lacking then you are leaking performance in your equipment or swing technique. The stick comes with an overall weight of 300 grams which is nearly 20 to 25 grams less than other Big Bertha series drivers. This results in a dynamic loft that is different to the static loft printed on the golf club and is the larger influence over launch angle and spin. This angle also impacts the amount of launch your golf shot will have. Generally, will gravitate toward lighter shafts with softer flexes.
We could have stopped there and published our results, but we knew our readers would want us to go a step further.

Several studies have recently shown that shafts help players in a variety of ways to deliver the golf club consistently to the golf ball and make a more repeatable swing. The softening adjustment made the driver extremely smooth in the downswing as the clubhead is gaining speed. Each driver build, however, possess common components that make it easier for players to match their swing to different golf club styles. This factor is suppose to improve your swing speed. Feel and sound are similarly subjective, but we all know the sensation we want at impact.
The Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 has a flexible face and a composite crown. Of all the drivers our Gear Trials Panelists could have voted for — and each Panelist could have voted for any driver it felt was worthy — seven drivers received an overwhelming majority of the votes. The Hammerhead slot and Geocoustic technology ensure that M4 sounds great and gives players more ball speed protection, even when they do not make their best swings. This benefit is accomplished by the channel placed along the face. So you can have more help to reduce your slices and hooks.
