Golf Monthly Verdict

Thinner top edges combine with an undercut that should successfully attract golfers of all standards. An impressive consistency of strike will help those searching to improve their game from fairway to green. Close in to the green the soft yet solid feel helps to move the ball through the air and judge distances.
