Hands up, who is anxiously waiting for the release of the 917 range? I heard that they have already touched down on our shores weeks ago, and retailers will be undergoing product training & testing these few days, in preparation for their official launch in October.

Titleist drivers are quite "spinny" i feel. 

Plus i read somewhere online that the weights to adjust the fade/draw bias are going to cost 150 bucks

Not exactly cheap for the extra adjustability imo.

Been playing a 913 for years. Probably time for an upgrade. Tried it on launch day at MBGC and was quite impressed with the forgiveness and length. Not loving the sound it makes so will probably wait for more feedback before I take the plunge.

Went for the demo, it will come with one set of neutral weight and one draw/fade weight (by different insert direction).

If you need more draw/fade compensation, you can buy additional weight which is heavier. Or cheaper alternative with different settings on surefit hosel.

Just tried the driver on the Trackman. Numbers looked impressive and a vast improvement from my current dog... Feel was explosive and just loved the predictable ball flight. 


P/s: not related to Titleist nor Acushnet ...
