Tour Gear Alloy Driver

Material: 7075 aircraft grade aluminum 460cc driver – the large head provides a bigger hitting surface. Weight is moved towards the perimeter. That translates to greater forgiveness on off-center hits.  The combination of large head, greater MOI, lower CG gets you going on every hole. Even if you mis-hit, you can get the ball going in the general direction. Usually such well made drivers cost $100 or higher. The designers wanted to make a driver that is not as expensive but still has similar characteristics. They decided to make the clubhead out of aircraft grade forged aluminum instead of titanium.  You are probably asking “What does the player give up in comparison to a similarly sized titanium driver?” The forgiveness is no different since the head is hollow and all of the weight is in the perimeter. Where the difference lies is in the face thickness and subsequently the ball velocity off of the face.  For more information about the Tour Gear Alloy Driver, click here.

Tour Gear aluminum alloy driver with graphite shaft - 460cc Titanium - available in 10.5? - inexpensive driver, great value

Tour Gear Alloy Driver Material: 7075 aircraft grade aluminum Comes fitted with a graphite shaft and standard grip. 460cc driver – the large head provides a bigger hitting surface. Weight is moved towards the perimeter. That translates to greater forgiveness on off-center hits. Lower center of gravity helps you launch it higher.

You are probably asking “What does the player give up in comparison to a similarly sized titanium driver?” The forgiveness is no different since the head is hollow and all of the weight is in the perimeter. Where the difference lies is in the face thickness and subsequently the ball velocity off of the face. Most titanium drivers have a thin 3mm face or perhaps thinner. An aluminum face has to be much thicker to withstand the force of striking a ball therefore there is a slight drop off in ball speed coming off the club. Where the modern driver is just below the 0.830 COR limit set forth by the USGA, the Tour Gear driver would be in the neighborhood of 0.800 or roughly what the older [Read More ...]

Review of Golf Drivers

Golfers change their driver more often than any other club in their bag. Every year, manufacturers come up with newer and better models and golfers want to know which one is the best driver of them all. However; the best golf driver for one may not be the best golf driver for another person. We all have different swings and different strengths and weaknesses. That makes golf reviews that much more difficult. The best golf drivers for women are different than the best golf drivers for seniors. Most men want to know which one is the longest driver and do the lighter heads or the lighter shafts help them get faster clubhead speed. High handicappers want to know which ones are the most forgiving drivers and total newbies are looking for discount golf drivers. Now golf magazines do a very good job of comparing big brands but the best values are in the minor brands. Why pay $300 for Callaway golf drivers or Titleist or Cleveland when an Acer Leggera can be just as good for 1/3rd the price. Magazines don’t cover minor brands. We at InterloperGolf focus on minor brands but didn’t have comparative driver reviews to help our customers make better decisions. So we decided to do it ourselves. We based our review and comparison of golf drivers on how well they perform in various situations but shot dispersion and the ability to shape shots was the most important part. Most par 4′s and 5′s start with a [Read More ...]
