I have been in the market for a new driver all year and just haven't pulled the trigger on one yet. I've done a full bag fitting at Club Champion and am familiar with what my optimum launch/spin characteristics should be. I can test these on an indoor LM as well as outdoors. I would love to give honest feedback with as much technical and on-course feedback as possible.
