2014 Hot List: Players Drivers
The rules say drivers are at the limit, but today's adjustable heads make your potential limitless
TAYLORMADE JETSPEED TP
LOFTS: 9.5, 10.5, HL-13 (adjustable).
TECH TALK: The first TaylorMade driver to incorporate the company's face-flexing sole-slot technology, JetSpeed retools the slot idea to make the sole more flexible. The cut-through design and the club's low-forward CG help increase ball speed and reduce spin. The adjustable hosel incorporates 12 positions that tweak loft by plus/minus 1.5 degrees.
"The crown lines make alignment easy. There's a noticeable spring at impact." ... "Felt easy in my hands. Didn't have to work as hard with this one to get it launched."
HOT: TaylorMade shows us that the sole slot isn't just a face-activator, but an even more intriguing spin controller. NOT: Shaft (46 inches) is longer than better players prefer.
