What we say...
A carbon composite crown removes 8g of weight which has been relocated lower and deeper to promote a higher launching and forgiving ball flight. A heavier head weight is teamed with 20g of tungsten powder in the end of the grip to create a counter-balanced driver that’s got the capability to increase club speed while you swing at the same speed.
There’s no doubting the XPG looks easy to hit, there’s a ton of loft, a wide body design and some clever crown graphics that disguise how big the body actually is. We thought the XPG’s design filled us with confidence at address as we really fancied our chances of hitting the centre of the bat. It’s amazing how easy it is to hit something you can actually see! Looking at the numbers the XPG launched and peaked shots out above average for all the drivers tested. Throw in how there was just 3.5mph drop off in ball speed between centre and off centre hits and we’ve got to hold our hands up and say it’s a forgiving and playable driver.
Yonex might not be everyone’s first thought when it comes to a new driver but we reckon the XPG can offer decent performance especially to those owning a smooth tempo and rhythmic swing.
