Supposed to be hottest face and believe it. Bought one two months ago. First time I hit it off line and walked to the spot it should have been for my old driver the ball was clearly 15 to 20 yards further. I ave around 215 yds from my Burner 2008 driver, but now am ave about 230 yds. My good drives went from 250 to 270 per round. This driver is the real deal. Flight is lower than what you would expect for similar loft on your old driver but with an adjustment of one degree more with a slightly closed face, you will be getting great yardage. The ball rolls a lot more when using the XTD.
