Look at what the FedEx man brought me today Smile







I've been hunting for one for some time. Got it 2nd hand off 3balls.com (via eBay). Cost me about US$100 (which incl. shipping) Smile By the way, the shipping is ultra prompt. Completed ordering process last Thursday evening. Arrived early this morning.

Hopefully, this will help me cut down on my power-fades/slices and give me greater distance off the tee. Of course, I could suck at it which would likely be the most possible option... but one can hope Smile

Apparently, this one screams when she's hit. A loud yell comes out. Either from the golfer who's mishit the shot or from someone who's been pelted by the ball Smile

Regardless, I was told that she's the noisy sort Smile

So, I took this bad boy out to the range yesterday and these are my observations:

1. Draw face
I've never played a draw driver before. I will say however that it does help cut down on the nasty slices. The ball still fades but much less and I'm able to get the shot a lot straighter down the line. If I hit it sweet, the ball draws and I get distance.

2. 9˚ loft
This is the lowest lofted club I've played and I like it. Admittedly, it's scary cause a bad shot will cause the ball to run more than fly. But, if hit properly, I get decent flight with the ball and because of the lower loft, the ball doesn't get in the air too much so it gets greater accuracy (i.e. it is less affected by wind).

3. The Monster XLS
The first time I hit, my ears were ringing for 10 seconds. This sucker is LOUD! Admittedly, it's not as harsh sounding as the Sumo 5900 but it's still loud. This is great as you can hear the power but a bad shot just alerts your neighbors to the fact that you're a moron with a loud-sounding club.

Overall, I like this club. It's going to sit in the bag in place of the Launcher 09 for a while. I'll wait and see how this one plays on the course. For the time being, it's an interesting club to have and for the price I paid, it's great Smile

I got my XLS Draw off eBay but it's from 3Balls. You can either buy direct from 3Balls but you pay the 3Balls price or take a gamble and buy off eBay for lower since it's an auction Smile

I smacked a ball (one in like a gajillion) and it went freakishly far since it was low. But I can see how the ball can pick up in flight with a good thump.

Dun worry bro. 3Balls is really good. This is my 2nd purchase from them. No regrets.

becareful the shipping price, US$39.99....if u are in the market for other clubs, additional item cost is additional US$7.99 i think (last time bought 5 items from 3balls).

If i cant get my driver in SG, looking to order from 3balls again.

I don't mind paying the US$40 shipping if the item is not available in SG (and the XLS Draw doesn't seem to be). And, it arrives uber fast too!

I took the driver out to play yesterday evening and it's pretty solid. I love it. I'm all for draw drivers now Smile Distance-wise, this one is pretty good and definitely longer than my Cleveland Launcher 09. I guess that's a combination of the 9˚ loft and the XLS shape.

wahh that's fantastic tspaz. Smile hopefully the honeymoon period doesn't end!

was wondering though, how does the ball flight for this one compare to your previous driver? i believe you were using the launcher 10.5 right? i'm thinking of getting a lower loft.. i think i'm getting too much altitude. haha thanks bro!

cancel last! haha i reread the thread and you've already talked about it. haha i'm itching to get my hands on a 9.5/9.0 lofted driver now!
