Here's what Hot Stix Golf founder and president Mark Timms says is the best gear of the year so far in 2006, and why
NIKE SASQUATCH Says Timms, "Moment of inertia is a numeric value for forgiveness, and this driver is the most forgiving we've ever tested. It's big and ugly, but it works great."
TAYLORMADE R7 425 "From our testing it fits a much broader range of golfers than the first-generation R7. It's a lot more forgiving and produces a slightly higher spin rate, which makes it better for slower swing speeds."
CALLAWAY FUSION FT-3 "The pros have been using prototypes for some time, but the FT-3 finally is in wide distribution. It's really hot, and Callaway's first really good driver in a while."
MIZUNO MX-900 "They're awesome--a traditional-looking forged set that transitions beautifully into hybrids for the long irons. The trend of incorporating hybrids into a set will, I believe, lead to the disappearance of individual hybrid clubs."
CALLAWAY FUSION "The clubs are extremely forgiving given that they're not that bulky. They are probably the best example of the concept of mixing different materials to better distribute weight without having to manipulate the shape of the clubhead into something so big that it's going to get caught in the grass."
MITSUBISHI RAYON "They've added a bunch of new stuff to what was already a great line. Very high quality, very consistent in all the testing we do."
