Is that a typo on the 9.5* side where O- is listed twice with different settings? I was studying the chart trying to figure it out then really got confused haha.
Yeah that 2nd O- should be U-

Great review and video James!! Not sure I'm the target golfer for this one but understandable why TEE added this to their lineup!
Thank you!

The Pro is 100% for the smaller segment, but I love that TEE just lid the gauntlet out there for people who’ve been knocking them with backhanded compliments at who their drivers like the EXS 220 do and don’t fit.

My man this was so insanely well done.
You rock good sir. Thank you. Would love to hit this 440cc and that Honma you’re working with side by side. Two small profile tanks.

Enjoyed that review @Jman Which shaft did you test this in? I don't recall seeing you mention that. Also does TE offer other shafts or is it just those 2?

Good thing I can't swing for quite some time or I'd be hunting one of these down. Well done sir!

Great write up @Jman. I like the low spin aspect of it and the looks are lights out. I just don't think I could hit a driver that demanding.

It’s definitely not the driver for the majority imo. But it hits a segment of need for TE, plus it’s like I said, it honestly let them flex their muscles a bit and that was very cool to see.

Pondering this hard. Need to upgrade my shaft for better control, but it's so tempting to just get the shaft I need and the head I want in one package.

My previous 3w was a tour edge and it was in my bag close to 10 years. Had the matching driver also but it only lasted 6 years. Got the Epics in the bag now and love them both. But these guys make crazy good stuff at great price points.

Great review. One of the things that you said that is so true is the neutral ball flight. I hit this in the store and it had a very flat flight that really wanted to go straight for me. I think this head competes very favorably with any other offering this year.

Thanks Craig!

I honestly don’t think anyone is going to find a low spin driver that sets up this neutral in this release cycle. And when I say low, I do mean LOW haha!

I really wish there was a demo I could hit... PGA store does have these on the shelf but I had to hit them with tape on.

Waiting for my putter to get regripped I hit the 16.5 pro fairway and was really really impressed! It was odd bc ive always been told tape on the face makes the spin drop but I was hitting very straight, neutral shots with 4000+ spin.... but was giving me very impressive ball speeds numbers. ( couldn't find the fairway thread so posted here)

There’s a combo fairway/hybo/driver release thread, but I’ll be putting a fairway specific thread up this evening as I have a 5w I’m going to review

Believe they have a 30 day trial period.

Tour Edge isn't far from you. Do you know if they allow the public into their hitting bays, or is it a by-invitation-only deal? But as @Gman79 mentioned, they have a 30-day performance guarantee, so you can try them on the course and without protective tape.

Does adjusting the sliding weight make a change to spin? Like does it spin more in the back/neutral position verses the draw/fade positions?
