Sound clip might have to wait a bit... Funny enough I'm currently in the hospital with my wife as she's giving birth to our first child. I'll be a new baby boy's father hopefully by tomorrow!

the iconic swing is timeless... the company he founded in 1953 is committed to living up to Mr. Hogan's philosophy; they manufacture clubs 'as near perfect as modern-day tools can perform'.

So as we get everything situated with orders and well wait for some courses to open. Are there any burning questions about this driver that anyone has and us testers and help answer as we review? Any comparison drivers that would be good to test against? How shaft offering pairs with the heads?

Upon my initial observations of the videos online, the adapter they are using looks to be the same as the Maltby KE4 TC adjustable driver.  I have this head and it will be interesting to see if they are indeed the same type.  The adapter is nice as it keeps the shaft in the same place and only rotates the ring which means you can use ribbed grips or spine aligned shafts.

If this is true that fantastic. I have been curious about that head as well. 

Looking into this a little further it looks a little different with graphics. Also here is the adjustment information for 9* driverGS53_Flight_Control_settings.thumb.jpg.29b250a44cb7b50b9b5df3474a84c717.jpg

That's really a nice feature and one I wish more major OEM'S would use. I love that about my Callaway, I've gotten really spoiled to my Align grip.

Amen! My Honma has this, but my Exotics Fwy doesn’t, so I’ve had to get another grip and install it! Ugh.
