  • Pros

    Simple, no-nonsense driver that performs admirably.

  • Cons

    Shiny crown creates glare in the sun. Alignment is trickier.

  • RRP £279.00

What we say...


Verdict: I like the more subtle crown design, but the black face and crown meant I struggled with alignment. The shiny finish gave me some glare at set-up, which was a fraction off-putting. I prefer a matt black finish personally, but I think TaylorMade have made the right decision in accommodating traditionalists.
