Comments:

It outperformed my M2 in every category. The ball flight was much flatter and I picked up 4-5mph of ball speed while also tightening dispersion which is exactly how a new driver gets in the bag.

Sound, Looks, Feel

Some may not like the crown aesthetics. But I think they look very cool.

Summary of My Experience with the Club

When you put it with the ECPC experience its hard to beat. I thought my M2 would be unbeatable but Trackman doesn’t lie!
