New Golf Driver Technology

Adjustable Weights When reading golf driver reviews you might hear the term "adjustable weights". Some modern-day drivers have adjustable weights in the sole or internal weighting to help golfers reduce a slice or hook. For the most part this feature is pretty limited to a small percentage of new golf drivers. If an adjustable weight system does not sound like a desirable feature slice golfers should choose a driver with a draw bias while hook golfers should choose a driver with a slice bias. Additional Technological Advancements Most manufacturers today are continuously pushing the envelope with regards to USGA limits. There is a limitation of 5900 gram-centimeter squared with regards to Moment of Inertia (MOI). This term refers to the clubheads resistance to twisting when off-center shots are made. The greater the MOI rating the more forgiveness that golfers will receive from off-center shots.

The RAZR Hawk Driver is Callaways very latest creation and has revolutionized the way the best golf drivers are manufactured. By using a brand new form of material called Forged Composite which is much lighter and stronger than Titanium Callaway engineers have been able to reduce and optimize the thickness of the walls. With this technology along with their Hyperbolic Face Technology which optimizes the thickness of the entire length of the clubface to produce a more efficient effective hitting area (sweetpot) Callaway are able to produce a driver that has much lighter and stronger clubhead yet still maintains an extremely high moment of inertia. The result is a driver that provides faster clubhead speeds and faster ball speeds along with more forgiveness which ultimately produces greater distance and accuracy off of the tee especially on those miss-hit shots. Nike latest creation and their best golf driver to date is the SQ Machspeed Black Driver. This is full of their very latest ground-breaking technology including their award winning STR8-FIT Technology that allows golfers to independently adjust the loft and lie angles so that they can perfectly match their own individual swing styles. This is a great enhancement for any players looking to combat any hooking or golf slicing issues they may have.

Therefore beginner golfers should look for drivers with a very high MOI (5800-5900). Another common term seen when reading golf driver reviews is Center of Gravity (CG). Basically beginners should focus on drivers that have a low CG. This allows balls to have a higher flight path when compared to drivers with a higher CG. One more term used in some golf driver reviews is what is known as Coefficient of Restitution (COR). This refers to a spring-like attribute that a ball has at impact. At a higher COR the golf ball will be leaving the clubhead faster (i.e. higher momentum) for a fixed impact speed. The USGA legal limit for COR is 0.830 presently.
