Finally!!!!!! It is here!  cheers 

My Alpha! 








Had a go at it today....real easy driver to swing with and forgiving to boot!
A couple of mishits on the heel still managed to get the ball going without much penalty.

On the good hits.....it was bombingly a sight to behold. 
With a +1/D setting, managed to get the launch and carry I was looking for.

Feel wise, it is by far the most muted and 'soft' feel impact I ever experienced. 

This is definitely a gem to hold on to.....

 Swing 

Thanks DGman!
Is it 10-20m Longer than your rfe/xhot?

Only 2nd game with the Alpha driver.....loving it to tears! 

Had some lovely drives today.....good launch and speed off the ball (thru the naked eyes). 
Improved my carry, no doubt. Had it on Neutral and +1 on the loft.

MBGC 17th Short Par-4 playing 268m earlier.....bombed it to the fringe of the green. 
1st time ever for me...... Swing 

Fantastic driver for me!!  Callaway

Are you getting increased roll as well? I know it's hard to tell with the dry conditions these days.

Whats the difference between the alpha and 460? Is the alpha for better players ?
And for one who doesnt drive well, shud i custom fit or buy stock?

The Alpha is a control beast while the 460 is a friendlier driver. there are more moving parts on the Alpha to tweak so that a better player or user of the driver can get more optimisation. 

the 460 is simpler and it has a directional bias adjustment capabilities. 

hope it's clearer.

thanks....DGman

its very clear when you remove the grip and see the markings on the butt.

Not so much of a better player...but one thing for certain.

It does allow me to tweak the loft to get a better launch and ball flight.

Loving this beast!

Played around with the gravity core earlier at the range; had the weight nearer to crown.

Result = higher ball flight (higher spin???) and impact feel not as omph as compared to with the weight down.

Had another round with the BB Alpha earlier at Ponderosa.....decided to test it side by side with my Razr Fit Extreme. Extra distance may be due to hard ground arising from dry weather though.  Razz  

Teed 8 times with the BB Alpha....average out 244m. Longest at 263m.

Teed 6 times with the RFE..........average out 221m. Longest at 253m.

The Alpha is real solid for me........

Simply love my X2hot on tour AD 6S.
I am constantly hitting 250-260m with this custom fitted driver.
I hardly get that with my xhot us version driver.
Thanks for building my confidence with this setup.
