Summary: The Mac power driver is the best driver I have ever owned. It is even better than my Ping driver. I can get at least another 30-50 yards from my drives.

Summary: I must say these clubs are amazing.
Mis-hits, off-center, name it and you got the ball long and straight.
I'm also looking to purchase their driver, but on hold due to exchange rate.
The only problem I have now is that this club hits too long and I must consider something to fill in between...
Summary: This driver rocks. I traded a couple of cheap old drivers for this in like new condition (it was priced at $39 used), and it is in the bag. I have tried many, many drivers, and this is among the best (THE best, for me currently). The price is crazy... since Burrows went under, these drivers seem to be radioactive, they are giving them away on Ebay.
Mine came with the Fujikura HF-6, which I heard was so well liked by the folks at Fuji after designing it for Burrows, they brought it out themselves as the Tour Platform... expensive!
This is a very long and forgiving driver. I mean REALLY long. Easy to control, unless a wild hack is taken at the pellet, which is fun once in awhile, sound is solid, feel is great, feedback is good. Mine is 10.5*, R flex, 46".
At $39, it is crazy, as it is better than all of the $300-$400 drivers I have owned or tried. The 400 cc model is the best, IMO, and hard to find. I think it was the tour version, appears to be square.
I hit one of the longest drives of my life with this recently, 370, ground was a little dry, but what a gas! I am getting around 275 on average with a full but controlled swing.
Solid construction, thicker face, bummer about some of the others here cracking, but most drivers have a few flawed ones that come around sometimes... Looks a lot like the Titleist heads, which is fine. I am waiting for a MAC 3 wood with a fuji shaft bought off Ebay for $45 shipped... crazy.
Customer Service: none
Similar Products Used: Almost everything. Recently, the G10, Sumo2, 905r, Burner, Hi-Bore XL, Srixon 503. The Mac blows them all away.
Summary: Unbelievable! I got an 8.5 degree driver (non draw) from Rock Bottom Golf for $20, stiff flex ($30 delivered). It came with a Fujikura VP70 shaft which is worth more than that alone.
Originally, I purchased just a clubhead, threw it on a spare shaft and proceeded to hit the best drives of my life. After purchasing the above driver, I am now hitting 10 to 30 yard draws right down the middle of the fairway. My average drive has gone up about at least 20 yards (averaging 309 yards here in Phoenix, AZ - in the winter!), I think because this driver is so forgiving. You have no idea how satisfying it is when I knock it 30 to 75 yards past some guy holding a $300 plus fancy driver. When he asks me what I have I make darn sure to point out it cost me only $20.
Also, my friend had given up on hitting drivers a couple of years ago. I loaned him the one I built and he proceeded to knock a bunch of drives STRAIGHT down the fairway. He LOVES this driver.
Honestly, I have delayed posting this review so I could buy a total of at least 3 of these drivers, as well as the fairway woods. I now have what I need so am willing to share the good news with you.
