Time to Choose a New Driver?

1 | Callaway XR16  Callaway engineers teamed with Boeing, designing the head of this new driver to produce more distance through higher speeds and lower drag, while enlarging the sweetspot for more forgiveness. A lighter, thinner face further increases ball speed. In 9, 10.5, and 13.5 degrees. $350 

2 | Mizuno JPX-EZ  A new head design and more customization options—weights can be moved in both a central sliding rail and two side slots—make this driver extremely forgiving while adjustable to create any desired ball flight. Loft can be set from 8.5–12.5 degrees. $400

3 | Cobra King LTD  See that hole in the sole? It’s the result of research done in space—and why it’s called SpacePort—allowing a look inside the head and fine-
tuning the weight to produce higher speed, higher launch angle, and less spin. Available in five lofts, from 9–12 degrees.

4 | Ping G
This new club is designed and weighted to produce more speed, forgiveness, and consistency, with “turbulators” on the crown and “VorTec” shaping in the back for efficient airflow. In 9 and 10.5 degrees, with adjustable hosel; also low spin and straight flight models.

5 | TaylorMade M1
Already a hot seller and Tour winner, the “unmetal wood” marries a superlight carbon crown with a titanium body to produce more power and softer feel. The two-track weight system in the sole controls launch angle and draw-fade bias. Available in four lofts, from 8.5–12 degrees.
