What we say...
If you want to check out this set just head down to your local branch of JJB Sports, to whom the Slazenger brand is now licensed. What you’ll find are cheap and cheerful clubs that won’t overly impress serious golfers but will prove more than adequate for most recreational players.
The hybrid clubs feature a short shaft, compact head and almost supernaturally shiny face. Both testers found it easy enough to get the ball in the air with them, although distances were a mite inconsistent.
In contrast, the heads of the mid and short irons are here, filling the golfer with plenty of confidence at address. Compared to most game-improvement irons, however, they have less weight in the sole, making for a ‘thinner’ feel at impact. Probably as a result, the Slazenger 6-iron came out shortest in our distance test. The plus side of having more subtle undercut cavities, though, is that the wedges become more manageable around the green.
Like the Nike CPRs, this set only available right-handed. The militant wing of the left-handers society should address their anthrax parcels JJB’s headquarters in Wigan.
