Well, I'm an absolute novice at this game really so you can take what you want from this review. I picked up the Burrows MAC Powersphere on ebay for £25 having read many good reviews of this club from when it first came out and by fellow reviewers. I didn't know at the time that Burrows Golf had gone bust and that is why you can find all of their stuff so cheap. Anyway on to the review:

This is a weird looking club. I'm well known for being quite a gadget geek and I did myself no favours pulling this out of my bag having never even hit a driver. My swing is ok from playing bit when I was younger but I didn't expect to hit the ball so well with this thing. I am getting away with murder some of the time with off centre shots that should be going left and right. The only problem that I have to get rid of is my fade but that's not a problem of the club.

I love this club so much that I'm getting the 3 wood and I've order the ION putter and Tourbounce lob wedge from the states off ebay. It's probably just as well they didn't do irons because I don't need them but probably would have bought them anyway.

(I drove it over 300 yards today!)

Not used but don't have much hope if they're bankrupt.

i have been using a WALMART driver for a long time and did not get much distance about 220 i got a mac on ebay for 20$ used but good condition and started hitting 260 consistantly and straight i think it is a good club for some one not wanting to spend 400$ on a taylor made r7

Model Reviewed: Burrows 350 9.5 degree draw

Sweeeeeeeeeet is the one word that comes to mind when i think about my burrows driver. I played from the black tee box for the first time this week because of this driver. Never before would i have hit from the black box because i was consistenly a 220 240 yard guy now after hitting it all winter i have hit par 4 greens over 300 yards no hype. I keep trying to replace it with more expensive drivers as i can finally afford to pay for a golf game but nothing i have tried to date can out perform for distance or accuracy. I had and mean had a slice which i that i would just have to accept but not with this thing, man i am here to tell ya i have played close to 30 holes before with out missing the fairway with this thing and long I have decided however to try something new since the money is burning a hole in my pocket. i am going to try the 400 or 421 cc version of this driver for 70 bucks i will have lots left over for a bag or something if ya need distance and accuracy go to ebay and buy one RIGHT NOW I will follow up on the bigger models later .

Model Reviewed: mac 8.5 deg stiff grafalloy

Tried this driver at the local club with 9.5 loft and hit it well but a bit high. When I saw an 8.5 on Ebay going for $100(Aus) I bought one. Product came with draw face but it sets up nice and straight. 8.5 loft gives a nice trajectory with good length. Not as long as a 8.5 Taylormade R580 I have but a good deal straighter. Its a just fun to hit. For the price you can't go wrong.

Model Reviewed: MAC powersphere 360 9.5* closed face

I picked up this club used at a golfer's warehouse and decided to give it a swing. My first impression was the nice feel in the head of the driver. I liked the shaft too. It came with a graffalloy Hotflex stiff shaft, and i am very pleased with its performance. It is quite easy to pass 280 yds with solid contact on your tee shots, which of course i liked. I have tried many other famous brand drivers and never got out of them what a used $70 driver gave me: increased distance with exceptional accuracy. this is a must buy for those struggling to find the right big stick for their bag

Model Reviewed: Burrows MAC Powersphere 350 draw face

I own a Burrows Golf MAC Powersphere 350 cc driver with 9.5 degree loft and a draw bias on the face of the club. This is a great driver. Before this driver, my normal drives went 250 yards with my powerful ones reaching 290-300 yards. Now I am regularly hitting the ball 280 yards and have hit it 340 yards on a flat surface with this driver. I bought it on ebay for 20 bucks used and have not regretted it for a day. They can be found for 60 to 70 dollars new online (overstock, ebay, etc.). It has great feel. I did a lot of internet research before purchasing this driver as I am newly married and financially weak. :-) It took a round or two to get used to. If you cannot hit a good drive with the club that you have, the club is probably not the problem. I used to swing my father in-law's Callaway Big Bertha Fusion with a draw bias. I hit this one every bit as far with one-twentieth the expense.

Model Reviewed: Mac Powersphere Driver 360cc

I own about a dozen drivers. My Mac Powersphere with their stock graphite shaft is hands down the best. It looks funky with the hole in the bottom, and I don't know if their technical theory about the inverted cone and the hotface is true, but this club hits straighter and 20-30 yards further with an effortless swing than any other driver I have. With other drivers I hit 220-240, and this one is regularly 250-270. Thats a difference that starts to change the game when it comes to approaching the green and making par or birdie. These are available on eBay for cheap, $40-$50, so give it a shot if you struggle with distance or direction. Just swing easy and let the club work. Of course, if your swing is crappy, no driver will make it good :-) But this can make it better ... and to be honest, I can't imagine paying $300-500 for some big name driver will make it any better than this.
