The new XLS driver is available in not one, not two but three versions – Standard, Draw and Tour. All boast faces 17% larger than their HiBore XL predecessor, with significantly increased moments of inertia for extra stability thanks to heel and toe “stability foils” that increase perimeter weighting. The Draw model is offset with extra heel-biased weighting to counter slice tendencies, while the Tour model has toe-biased weighting and an open face angle for a more neutral set-up and greater scope to manoeuvre the ball.
The standard model we tested had a very solid feel off the face that was accompanied by a pretty loud impact sound. Over the ball, the head actually looked a little more compact than the size of its soleplate suggested. Where next?
