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.
And now almost every driver on the market offers some form of adjustment or tweak that can be made by the player to tailor the club to their style of play. As one starts on the journey to find their best golf driver the first thing you run into is a sea of terms that make little to no sense. Terms like: CG location head size and depth loft angle face angle lie angle forgiveness shaft flex and more. If you are an average golfer and get out to the links every so often these terms might mean very little to you. But all these things are very valuable information in trying to find a driver to carry in your bag every golf outing.
Kinds of drivers There are three golf driver types according to the material that they are made of: the alloy drivers stainless steel and forged titanium. Alloy golf drivers have shafts made of stainless steel or graphite and Ti Alloy heads. They are great for driving the ball into the first course. Stainless steel drivers on the other hand come with hard and strong heads and are the most common choices among the golf driver types. They have compact heads and are heavier than the alloy and titanium varieties. Finally there are the forged titanium drivers. These golf drivers are composed of titanium heads and shafts that are made of lightweight graphite.
