FT Tour
That dreadful clunky sound seems to be a thing of the past now. The FT Tour delivers a solid noise at impact that is all together more pleasing.

Need To Know

Our score:
Overall: 
4
PRICE: £399.00 YEAR: from 2010

This Tour version of the FT driver has a more compact head shape than it’s sister model and also sits a degree or so open at address, something that is generally preferred by better players who are always more frightened of going left than right.

At D4, it has a slightly lighter swingweight compared to the D5 of the TaylorMade Supertri or the D6 of Mizuno’s MP630 Fast Track, it feels good in the hands and fills you with confidence at address.

An unfussy-looking club that is an improvement of previous similar models.

Looks: I liked the head shape  which doesn't have the more bulbous rear end of the ‘Tour’ version of the FT9. This will please traditionalists, particularly as the design is clean with no frills to distract you at address.

Feel/performance: Two things spring to mind. First, that the dreadful clunky sound seems to be a thing of the past now. The FT Tour delivers a solid noise at impact that is altogether more pleasing.

Second, the Aldila Voodoo shaft is excellenta delivers a strong penetrative flight even with the 10.5-degree of loft I had on the test club.
