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.
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.

Some low-handicap golfers might prefer a smaller clubhead volume (less than 400cc) because they dont need the larger sweetspot. Launch Angle Launch angle is a common term contained in golf driver reviews. This angle refers to the initial angle of the golf ball at impact. Loft angle is important simply due to the fact that higher loft gives a higher launch angle which equates to greater distance. Professional golfers generally prefer lower loft angles (9 degrees or less) while mid-handicap golfers are more comfortable with loft angles between 9 and 11 degrees. In contrast beginners and high-handicap golfers typically have trouble getting the ball to have a high trajectory. They should be looking to buy drivers with loft angles greater than 11 degrees.
