The Drivers Test 2014: Dunlop DP1
Tech: “Adaptive Drive” provides five face angle settings. Interchangeable 10g and 3g weights let you alter the draw/fade bias.
What we said... James Ridyard: “I like headshape and the solid single alignment line really works. The textured effect on the crown is odd but it felt solid and distance was decent.” Joel Tadman: “It was accurate. The new shaft is more stable than last year's. Having the heavier weight in the heel reduced my miss to the right.” Stephen Kidd: “It flies from the middle but curves a lot on mis-hits. The adjustability isn’t obvious, I had to tinker for a while to find my best setting.” Steve Milnes: “The pattern on the crown is off putting. It wasn’t overly powerful; a 12° head would get more out of my action.”
Pros: Affordable adjustability. Solid feel.
Cons: Textured crown will divide opinion.
