Since 2013, Wilson has been all about reducing weight to allow golfers more clubhead speed. While that story continues to play out with some of Wilson’s clubs, a new approach was taken with the development of the D9.
In concert with Tour staffer, Gary Woodland, the company used computer modeling to come up with a head design that’s the most efficient after comparing hundreds of different iterations. It’s safe to say that Wilson is current with the times when it comes to this part of the process.
- Computer-generated head design is scientifically proven to provide maximum performance in terms of distance and forgiveness.
- Lightweight three-layer composite crown is lighter than previous models and allows players to increase clubhead speed.
- Price point is lower than other drivers on the market.
- Lack of adjustability might make fitting and customization a challenge.
- Only one stock shaft option could be a limiting factor.
- Only one loft option for left-handed players isn’t ideal.
The word on the street is that the C721 driver is one of the lowest spinning drivers to hit the shelves in 2021. However, it’s also one of the most playable.
I’ll be the first to admit that the driver is a little out there when it comes to looks. The crown looks lime something out of Star Trek. But the club flat out performs, feels good, and sounds great.
Most of all, it’s undeniably one of the hottest drivers available for this year.
- Modern technology and design provide the very best in both distance and forgiveness.
- Diamond Face Technology is not only hot, it maximizes performance on strikes all across the face.
- Plenty of stock shaft options make fitting a breeze.
- Crown design aesthetics might be tough to look at for some players.
- Limited loft options for left-handed golfers might be a limiting factor.
- Shipping times have been inconsistent due to high demand and logistics circumstances.
When PXG showed up on the market, they rocked the boat with clubs that were exorbitantly expensive. And they weren’t shy about it.
With the release of the 0211, everybody expected more of the same. But Bob Parsons (PXG founder) threw everyone a curveball when he slashed the price of this club to less than $250. Why? I’ve heard lots of rumors, but PXG seems to be feeling bad for everyone after a forgetful 2020, so they’re throwing us all a bone.
Whatever the case is, the reviews far surpass the price of this driver. The word I keep hearing thrown around about this driver is “balanced”. Not just in a structural sense (although it certainly has that), but a literal sense as well. Players across the ability spectrum seem to benefit from all the 0211 has to offer.
- Price point is cheaper than just about anything else on the market.
- Plenty of loft and shaft options, along with adjustable hosel make for easy fitting and customization.
- Titanium alloy face is one of the hottest around.
- All black head isn’t everyone’s favorite.
- Shipping times might take a while due to such high demand.
- Low price special ends at the end of June.
The Honma T//World GS driver is all about helping golfers that struggle with consistency off the tee, turn the big dog into an offensive weapon. It’s more than clear that the thought, craftsmanship, and engineering that went into this club is second to none.
And when it comes to performance, this driver is a cut above the rest. The results have shown in both testing and through feedback from golfers just like you.
- Technologically advanced head construction maximizes both speed and MOI.
- Keel sole design provides plenty of draw bias for players that fight a slice.

- Only one stock shaft option could be a limiting factor.
- Shipping times have been inconsistent.
As of late, Cleveland has prioritized Average Joe’s before Tour Pros when it comes to driver manufacturing. That’s not to say that there aren’t a few pros playing this driver. Only that the club’s design features and technology are geared toward higher handicaps that are looking for longer, straighter, more consistent tee shots.
- Low CG promotes high launch and low spin resulting in more distance.
- HiBORE Crown is the lightest and most aerodynamic yet resulting in more clubhead speed during the swing.
- Variable thickness in the face produces consistent strikes, even on mishits.
- Lack of adjustability can make customization difficult.
- Lack of stock shaft options might be a limiting factor.
- Most models are only available in right-handed.
Callaway has always made it a goal to create the very best golf clubs that golfers of all abilities can enjoy and benefit from. For a lot of golfers, that means struggling with a slice off the tee.
The Big Bertha B21 is Callaway’s latest iteration designed to help this type of player. In an effort to help players spend less time in the right trees, Callaway has incorporated some cutting-edge technology to promote a draw and at the very least, reduce the amount of slice spin coming off the face.
- Built-in draw bias helps reduce slice curvature.
- Plenty of adjustability options make driver customization and fitting easy.
- Lightweight clubhead allows golfers to increase swing speed resulting in greater distance.
- Draw bias is not of benefit for players that naturally draw the ball.
- Lack of stock shaft options might be a deterrent for some players.
- Shipping times have been unpredictable.

If Cobra’s known for one thing when they introduce a new line of drivers, it’s the subsequent introduction of new technology. The Rapspeed line of drivers has plenty of it.
Most notable is radial weighting which maximizes the distance between weights at the front and the back of the head. The design feature increases both swing and ball speed, while reducing spin for longer, straighter drives.

As the importance of the golf shaft becomes more well-known among amateur golfers, a need to be able to invest in one shaft and use it in any golf club each player chooses will become increasingly valuable. The Club Conex Uni-Fit system is the best connection for creating the ultimate versatility in your golf clubs and golf shafts. Many times you will see the best players in the world upgrade their driver head or fairway woods every single year while playing the same shaft for maybe a decade, now you can too and only invest in the aftermarket shaft one time thanks to Club Conex.
- The Uni-Fit adapters allow golfers to quickly and easily swap all of their golf club shafts into any club head model regardless of brand.
- The Uni-Fit system helps save golfers money rather than asking them to upgrade their premium aftermarket shafts year after year with their club upgrades.
- Integrated ferrules make installation more straightforward than mixing adapters and collared ferrules of different types.
- The Uni-Fit system may offer less adjustment options than OEM adapters depending on which settings golfers want to use.
- Hybrid shafts cannot currently be built with shaft adapters as only .335 diameters are accommodated by the Uni-Fit pieces.

Twist Face and the Inertia Generator combine to deliver maximum forgiveness and accuracy from heel, toe, and bottom impact locations. The M6 driver is built for golfers who frequently strike the golf ball across the face but want the ultimate in ball speed and distance.

Anytime you are considering buying a new golf club it must be better than what is in your bag or give you more options around the golf course. For players that have never been fit for their driver, the M5 is the ultimate tool for shot customization and distance. The M5 gives players more speed and more forgiveness due to the injection of Twist Face.

The G410 PLUS and SFT drivers deliver on their promise to give players better performance than the standard and SFT models in the G400 line. The movable weight and trajectory tuning system deliver more customized performance for elite and low-handicap golfers. The SFT delivers industry leading slice shot shape correction and help for players that need to find more fairways and keep the ball in play. Ping only releases a club when it is better than the club it is made to replace. Players that are gaming the LST or Max models can rest until the next iteration is released, but players coming from another brand or other G400 models will likely get a better fit and improved performance from the G410 Plus and SFT drivers.
