I'd forgotten how much success I had with my previous 5W off the tee until I bought this one. When I'm not driving the ball well and I need to keep it in play I reach for this, 220 off the tee easily and straight, the high ball flight makes me feel lime it will land soft out of the fairway more so than the hybrid that I was gaming and better distance. Was worried about the 6.0 shaft at first but I love the feel of it and can't see myself getting rid of this club for a long time. The face is as hot as any of the other top competitors so your distance will more than likely stay the same, but the 6.0 keeps it straight for me every time. Check the length when you do get b/c mine said standard but felt a little too short so I measured it and it turned out to be only 41" so I added another inch and she is definitely a keeper. Thanks GLOBAL GOLF, you have the best deals and prices.
