    For aesthetics, I truly put this against any driver out there, its crazy to me still how well they blended this design and cut no corners.
    Agreed. It is a good looking club. Not overly decorated or distracting and not boring. It looks clean, sharp, and high end.

        Hahaha, thats always the million dollar question.

        For me, RollFace/TwistFace isn't the best design trait for my miss, it actually accentuates them at times because when I'm off, I'm not quite getting that clubface all the way square to take advantage of the face. So when I hit toe side, the face is just more open because of the RollFace.

        That said, I'm waiting until it warms a bit and I've been practicing again to give it a fair shake. There are literally about 6 drivers right now I could play full time, which is WAY more than I can say in my past 6-7 years of reviewing.

            At that price point it's tough to ignore. Say a new driver is in that $500 range, you think about getting it, but instead give something like this a shot at a reduced price and still end up with around $200 to buy another club, FW, putter, etc. and stay within your original budget. Can't wait to try this thing out.

              Yep, that interview makes me want to hit it for sure. One question though, in the photos, it looks to me like the alignment mark on the crown favors the heel or is that just the angle of the shot? Just doesn't look exactly like the center of the clubface to me in the pic.

                I believe it is the angle of the picture. I hit the head many, many times during a fitting and never once questioned if the alignment mark was off-center.

                    Great write up James. Definitely interested in this driver. My only concern personally is the draw bias. I would love to try it out, but that heel weight and my toe miss may not play well together.

                      Swap the weights. Boom, problem solved!

                      Just kidding. I was thoroughly impressed in it though. It is definitely worth a test drive.

                        Great write up!!!! I like the blue on this driver and the fact that the bottom is different looking. I just checked and my local Golf USA has these in stock so might be able to get some swings on this. Very nice stock shafts also.
                        Driver Maybe something Flash?
                        Fairways Some more awesome Flash?
                        Irons I have no idea what might go in here!!!
                        Wedges probably some MD goodness
                        probably something that rolls awesome

                          Sox nailed it, its angle, its tough to nail an address pic sometimes, haha.

                          Thank you!

                          I wouldn't fear that, I mean it, it played crazy neutral for me.

                          And remember, the RollFace is going to help with that toe-hook/draw.

                            Thats interesting based on what Glod says in the video about it being draw biased and looking at the tech it does appear (where composite is) that it would be in place.

                              Oh I know, that was one of the things that surprised me, but, the head sets up well neutral and add in the fact that when the heavier weight is placed back, and not heel, I saw neutral all day long.

                              Was not as draw biased as the 585 for me, if that says anything.

                                Jman- did you hit the HL3 driver ? I struggle with hooks and couldn’t hit a draw with the HL3 for anything. Just mostly push fades. Might be the first driver I’ve fades in 3 years.

                                Was curious if the EXS drew more easy for you than the HL3.
