PowerBilt's latest driver reaches a new low (in a good way)

In equipment circles, the push for drivers with extremely low spin is a more common topic of conversation than Tiger Woods' return. Nearly every driver introduced in 2015 has a center of gravity (CG) lower than in past generations. The latest to do so is PowerBilt's new Air Force One DFX Tour.

The DFX Tour ($300, 8.5, 9.5, 10.5 degrees) also uses pressurized nitrogen gas in the clubhead to reinforce the metal walls without needing added material for support (the valve houses the nine-gram weight). This helps designers create a more flexible, thin face for more ball speed.
