Tested: Cobra KING LTD vs. TaylorMade M1

Oct 15, 2015 | 86 Comments

Not only is the Cobra King LTD vs. the TaylorMade M1 the most requested review from our readers this season, it’s quite possibly the single most requested test we’ve ever had.

We’re gearheads like you, so it’s only natural that we were every bit as curious as you are to see how these two drivers stack up. To help sort it out, we rounded up a group of testers, grabbed the Foresight GC2, some Bridgestone balls, and set about putting the Cobra’s KING LTD and TaylorMade’s M1 to a head to head test.

TESTED: Taylormade R15 (vs) SLDR

Nov 14, 2014 | 56 Comments

Is the 2015 Taylormade R15 better than the 2014 Taylormade SLDR? Let’s find out.

New clubs are great. We’ve been conditioned as consumerists to think that newer = better. Earlier this week we gave the world the first look at the new 2015 Taylormade R15 driver. Last night we were in New York city to cover the live launch event Taylormade had for the media. Today, we tell you whether or not 2015 is any better than 2014.

2014 Most Wanted Driver – Tester’s Picks

Feb 19, 2014 | 14 Comments

It was mentioned several times in the comments/questions, and we actually got the same question from a couple of golf companies too:

What were your tester’s favorite clubs?

Certainly we hear things during the testing process (both good and bad), but given the interest in the subject, I thought it was worth asking our testers which 5 drivers they liked best. As you might expect, there is some correlation between what they hit the best, and what they liked best, but some of the guys certainly had an affinity for something that might not have been near the top of their own list.

Ultimate Review – Fister Model I Driver

Sep 24, 2013 | 20 Comments

Yeah, it has been a great year for the big guys, but what about the smaller companies? Hireko’s Acer XS proved to be deadly accurate. Krank’s Forumla 5 is one bad mother…(shut yo’ mouth), and then, or rather…and now there’s the Fister Model I.

The who? Model what? Seriously.

Apparently because the driver market is not already over-crowded, Three-time World Long Drive Champion, Sean Fister decided to design the Model I driver. Now I know what you’re thinking (because I was thinking it too); how does being able to hit a golf ball really far qualify one to actually design a driver?

I won a closest to the pin contest once, maybe I should start designing irons (or at least 7 irons). Don’t we have actual engineers for this sort of thing?

The last time a noted long drive guy designed a driver we ended up with The Hammer. Pow! [READ MORE]

Ultimate Review – Acer XS Driver (Hireko)

Jul 24, 2013 | 19 Comments

You may have noticed that the golf equipment industry is a lot like your average kindergarten classroom. The kids that make the most noise get most of the attention. And in case you haven’t noticed; lately Callaway and TaylorMade have been making a lot of noise. By the time you work your way through Titleists, PINGs and Nikes, well…let’s just say the quiet kid in the corner barely gets any attention at all.

Golfers of all ability levels should understand that there are legitimate options far beyond what the big name labels you find on the shelf at your barely-local narrow-minded big box store. While their numbers aren’t what they used to be, there are still a number of smaller companies churning out some really great stuff at prices that put those marketing-heavy big boys to shame.

Case in point, the Acer XS Driver from Hireko Golf.[READ MORE]

2013 “Golf’s Most Wanted” – Most Accurate Driver

Apr 16, 2013 | 87 Comments

Yesterday we looked at distance for all 17 drivers in our test. For most guys absolute distance is the only thing matters. 300 yards into the trees is still 300 yards right?

There is, I’m told, a small (but hopefully growing) minority of golfers for whom distance isn’t everything. These are the guys who are willing to leave a little bit of yardage on the table if it means they don’t have to reload frequently, and more often than not, they play their second shot from the fairway.

It’s for this select group of golfers (the more intelligent than I crowd) that we set out to find the Golf’s Most Wanted Driver for accuracy. [READ MORE]

2013 “Golf’s Most Wanted” – Longest Driver

Apr 15, 2013 | 146 Comments

After spending the better part of 3 years building and revising what we think are the best golf club testing procedures in the industry today, the staff of MyGolfspy approached 2013 with the singular goal of publishing the most thorough and complete driver test of 2013.

Why? Because the consumer has been grossly under-served by the big magazines. Those guys thrive on ambiguity. Nothing is ever absolute and everyone gets a trophy. How does that help the consumer?

We think you deserve better. We think you deserve a club test where results aren’t tainted by the inherent conflict of interest that comes from testing clubs from the same companies whose ad dollars pay the bills. You deserve a club test where a logo, or paint, or what some guy thinks about intangibles like looks, sound and feel holds no weight, where innovation is only recognized when it performs, and where the final results are based on performance and not a damn thing more.

Presenting – 2013 “Golf’s Most Wanted” Driver Test

Apr 11, 2013 | 57 Comments

It’s time for a new Gold Standard in club testing.

For years golfers have looked to a certain list to provide guidance for their new club purchases, but as the game has changed and new technologies have emerged, the List has remained the same.

Rather than show the actual data that proves one club out performs another, they coddle the golf companies (also their advertisers and #1 source of revenue), and award points for style (looks, sound, and feel), the arbitrary notion of innovation (it’s only innovative if it actually works), and even throw in a few bonus points for effective advertising (they call it buzz). And when all is said and done, everybody gets a medal.

You deserve better. [Read More]

ULTIMATE REVIEW! – PING ANSER DRIVER

Nov 8, 2012 | 35 Comments

Beyond the amazing low spin numbers, what’s most telling for me is how well the PING Anser performed for each of our testers. From our low speed senior tester, to our higher swing speed player, to the guys in between, with a reasonably good shaft fit (from the stock selections no less), the Anser proved capable of producing excellent numbers across the board.

Minor gripes about the alignment aid aside, the Anser is one of those rare clubs where there’s truly nothing not too like. It’s capable of producing consistent numbers, the occasional huge drive, and is endless fun to hit.

What more could you want? {Read More}

ULTIMATE REVIEW – Adams Speedline Tech

Aug 28, 2012 | 21 Comments

The latest driver from Adams Golf is is the Speedline Tech. While I had expected that late summer would signal the release of what for me has been the long awaited 9064LS follow-up, Adams went in a different direction. The Tech, as we’ve come to call it during testing, represents the evolution of the Speedline driver. It’s lightweight, it’s adjustable, and according to Adams, it’s more accurate (54%), and longer (up to 11 yards). As it turns out, it also happens to have The Hottest Heel in Golf. {Read More}
