Shoots in the 90s
Model Reviewed: Launch Series Driver

I used to shoot in the 100s, but now I'm shooting in the 90s regularly. And it was possible all because of this company called Dynacraft, specifically Launch Series Driver and Jackroo II. (For my review of Jackroo II, please check the fairway wood section) The first Dynacraft product I tried was Jackroo II 23*, which was a great utility wood. So I thought of trying out their driver and bought the Launch Series, which had a combo deal with Grafalloy Prolaunch Blue. The combo I selected was 10.5* loft Launch Series (400cc head) and 65g Prolaunch Blue in regular flex. Once I got them, I had my local club builder to put them together. The result was something I had never experienced from a driver. Previously, I was hitting about 230 yards with a driver with a rare good swing/impact. Mostly, bad slice or fade with about 200 yards. (By the way, I have a bit steep downswing angle with quick tempo, which causes me to slice the ball often) With this setup, I was hitting 250 - 260 about 50% of time, probably due to its HUGE sweet spot. And I was hitting either straight or good power fade. Still I sometimes mess up and result in a bad slice, but that's now only about 10% of time now. Rest 40%, I still fail to hit on the sweet spot, but ball still flies straight or slight fade with 220-230 yards distance. All those good things without even changing my swing! The launce trajectory is high enough to warrant a quality hang-time for long carry distance, and roll distance is very decent also probably due to the head design and low torque tip of Prolaunch Blue shaft that generate low spin. The head looks HUGE in address, boosting confidence, and the face is long and tall enough for very generous forgiveness, as mentioned by other reviewers. Besides, 10.5* has 1* closed face, which helped me to launch the ball straight. Since I use my body to align my shot, 1* closed face didn’t cause any alignment problem for me. The total cost for this setup was less than $150, including the fee I paid to my local club builder. Now, I’m hitting fairways about 50% of time from my tee shots with more than satisfying distance, and even if I find my ball in the rough, mostly it in a very playable rough close to fairways anyways (by the way, the Jackroo II is a GREAT club in the rough). Now, I play with confidence, and sometimes I get on the green on 2nd shot on par 4 or 3rd shot on par 5 holes, which helped me to greatly reduce my score. The Launce Series driver is a GREAT choice, especially for those with high handicap, due to its generous forgiveness and low price. What can I say? My buddies with Callaway/Taylor Made or other name brand drivers ask me to try my driver time to time when we play together. Alas, only if they could get rid of their ego and could put “not-so-big-name” equipment in their bags…

Shoots in the 80s
Model Reviewed: dynacraft launch series

i used to regularly score around low 90s n on a good day i can sometimes score mid or high 80s but not anymore. eversince, i purchased n took a few weeks to get used to the club, i've been consistently scoring not higher than 85. i purchased this club directly from dynacraft n it is fitted with the latest grafalloy blue shaft. it simply gives u an extra of 20 - 30 yards. one thing for sure that is club is very forgiving. even on an off centre hit, it still sometimes gives u 200 yrads or so. my normal yardage is abt 250 - 280 yards with this club. i would certainly recommend this club to any levels of handicapper. it will certainly help to bring down yr score like it has for me.

Shoots in the 70s
Model Reviewed: Launch Series 9.5

I've been on a holy quest this season for the ultimate driver that'll bring me confidence and distance. Well, my quest is over. I am now playing the Launch Series driver 9.5* with Penley ETA X. What a combination! This head is 400cc with a slightly smaller profile and slightly larger appearance which I love in longer than standard drivers. Distance wise, it is definitely above average with a really distinct feel to it. Forgiveness is a definite 10! Confidence with this club is higher than any other ever. Only drawback is that the 9.5* and higher have a 1* closed face. Not a big fan of that, but the other attributes of this club definitely supercedes this one downfall. Surprisingly long, absolute perfect trajectory, awesome control. The club just wants to be hit straight. Even on my bad swings (that normally start right and cut) end up much closer to the fairway and are much longer. So, forgiveness gets the highest rating. An excellent clubhead...highly recommended

Customer Service

Dynacraft also seems to have stuff on back order. Also, you can only talk to a live person on weekdays during business hours.
