Here it is guys.  The super fast long hozel proto driver!  I have been hitting this for a few weeks now and getting great results.  Not many of these around so info is limited.  The hozel on this thing is real long.  It is 3/4" longer then any other superfast head.  I have also compared shape and size of this head to the regular tp and retail super fast and to me the head has a softer shape and has a more rounded triangle.  The head size appears to be smaller and the face appears to be slightly different shaped.   You guys know I love my FT9 TA but this driver is actually giving it contention.  Hard for me to believe as well.  

As far as performance goes I am really liking what I am seeing.  It is a little easier to hit straight then my FT9 TA do to the triangle design.  I kind of expected that.  I do hit more fairways with the superfast because of its forgiveness.  They give me similar distance when both hit similar but the supe rfast wins when it comes to off center hits.  It has a much larger sweet spot.  The driver can be worked slightly but not as easy to work as my FT9 TA. That again results from the triangle shape.  Feel wise it is real nice as well.  I like the feel of my ft9 ta slightly more then the super fast but not enough to cause me to think about it.  The driver also produces a nice sound.  It is a muted solid sound.  Kind of iike a persimmon wood with a slight bit of metallic sound.  Hope you guys enjoyed my small review.  If you have any questions I will answer to best of my knowledge.

Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but does hosel length have a large impact on the playability of the driver? I know tour drivers (FT Tour, Ping i15, etc.) often have longer hosels. What's the benefit?

Thanks!

and by the way, that is a sexy driver Posted Image

I would think the longer hosel shifts the center of gravity up and toward the heel.  Anyone remember those old Callaway commercials with a cartoon Sir Isaac Newton talking about why they removed the hosel entirely on the Big Bertha and S2H2's?

Long Hosel's allow the head to be bent for lie, loft and face angle. That's the reason for them and why they are typically tour only.

That looks like a deeper face than the TP and not as wide.

Here is a comparison photo.  Not easy to see the difference without looking closely at the transition from the head to the hosel.  Bore depth is very different when you install the shafts.  My experience is that the tour head has a higher center of gravity.

I got fit into one of these during the practice days of the US Mid-Am last week.  Awesome driver that made it into the bag for the weekend.  Mine is bent a touch flat and slightly open.

So sweet, and quite a find.

Now if they just went ahead and made it with FCT we could all reap the benefits.  They are probably waiting for 2012.  :secret:

I've got two. One was used as an R&D head for TM so it's got all kinds of burn marks, paint removal, etc, but they both hit the same, super buttery and more of a thud when you hit it. sets up way more square than the retail TP and it has a SUPER flatter trajectory. I got fitted perfectly into a SuperDeep and thought i was maxing out my driving distance but then i found these two and i swear it's like an effortless way to get the same distance.

i noticed my swing speed dipped ever so slightly since there's a bit of MOI still eventhough it's a tour head, but the ball speed is faster than the SuperDeep or SuperTri with my lower SS i get with the Superfast Tour TP.

because FCT is quite heavy and the burner is as lightweight as possible
