Summary of My Experience with the Club

It is fantastic. I never used a callaway driver before and this thing is awesome, it is beautifully designed, great adjustability and I love it. The ball comes off the face super hot. The technology in this thing is amazing. Jailbreak tech is legit. I had some other people hit this vs their current driver and they were speechless at how amazing it is. They even gained 20 yards over their current drivers. I myself have seen a minimum of 20 yards gain over my old driver. Anyone not considering this needs to go hit it and put it in the bag immediately. It is that good and more.
