What we say...
Not your standard draw driver. Sole weighting moves towards the heel, and there’s plenty of clever tweaks to the design to deliver an average of 12 yards of draw bias (but up to 20’s on offer if you include hosel adaptor adjustment) from a head that doesn’t look like a draw driver at all.
As good as past “draw” drivers have been golfers who’ve used them have confessed to feeling like keeping a dirty little secret from their playing partners. We promise though the D-Type’s different, so forget everything you think you know about draw drivers, as it simply isn’t relevant with the M2. The face angle doesn’t aim left, the design, cosmetics and “draw” name don’t scream rubbish golfer, oh and the D-Type doesn’t just work for slicers either. Simon who’d never entertained “draw” drivers before really warmed to the D-Type as his typical heel driver strike is right inline with the D-Type’s heel biased CG. So not only did it feel fantastically stable it’s also no surprise the D-Type produced some of his fastest ball speeds.
The D-Type brings something very new to the TaylorMade driver party. It’s seriously good for more than just slicers. Remember if you get properly fitted you don’t have to have the standard light weight Matrix shaft, even though we felt it was really stable, lightweight and easy to generate speed with.
