Strength:

This is an excellent club - but I would also recommend a 'fitted' steel shaft to all single figure golfers. Remember golf aint about strength - its about control! | Cockroaches exterminator berkeley

Model Reviewed: Hippo RS3 set

I recently got this set(Hippo RS3) on sale and the bag is nice,the clubs are nice and the hybrid 3 is a great club to hit out of the rough.The 460cc driver alone won't straighten out your slice,a correct swing will!As far as distance goes,try Callaway Big Bertha golf balls or Pinnacle Exception.I hit a Top-Flite Cannon 400cc driver with a Callaway Warbird ball 305 yards.A faster traveling clubhead that's square at impact will give you more distance,it doesn't matter what brand you play.The only problem with the Hippo RS3 set is the grips, kinda smooth. Grips aside,I recommend Hippo RS3 to anyone.

Its not a bad driver. You cant really give this club a bad rap for not hitting straight. My buddies golf with Callaway cause of the brand and it will show that its the golfer not the club.

Well, as some may believe, it is not the amount of money you pay for a club, but rather how you use it. An extra $200 on a driver is not going to make you better. I will say this, I have been able to hit well with pretty much any driver handed to me, my average is usually 300. I have played a bertha for about 2 years. I recently bought this Hippo as sort of a joke for my friend. I will say that this this driver is superb, the price was about $40 and I would recommend it. I was hitting bombs with it, it was a 10 degree with a regular flex shaft. Anyway, the moral of the story is, Callaway, Ping, Hippo or Dunlop it's all the same, it's in your swing. Granted that Ping may give you and extra 5-10 yards, but just make up for that with your short game. It's that simple folks. I would give this club 9 of 10.

Rather than buy this stick, I suggest U find a Taylormade 320 used, or maybe a great big bertha by Callaway, or a Cleveland Quadpro. Much better drivers and also very inexpensive. These were top of the line when produced. The Hippo just is not a driver that is going to move you up. It was offered as a cheap driver with OK performance. Use your head. Kind of a nice paint job, tho.... :-)

I thought from the reviews that buying this club would help me. Needless to say that 5 golf rounds later I broke it over my knee and never felt bad. If you have a slice like me this will make you slice 2 fairways more to the right. I now have a Ping and my slice is almost non-existant.

Model Reviewed: Hippo Giant 9*

This was my second driver moving from a wooden headed 190cc Ping eye2 to this 400cc monster I thought I couldn’t go wrong. To ping felt lovely really nicely weighted and it sat beautifully behind the ball but it offered nearly no forgiveness on my many mistimed lunges. The hippo seamed like it should be the answer to all my problems. Of coarse it wasn’t the giant head titanium head on a 46 inch graphite shaft just compounded my over swing. I’m quite short 5'9 or so and the 46 inch shaft never felt cumftable the heads so light that you dont know were it is during the back swing and there are no alignment aids on the crown. When I did set up corectly and swing smoothly and and rhythmically it worked a treat. on one or two occasions I court the ball really flush and the distances I achieved were well in advance of anything I’ve had before or since thirty or forty yards longer. I feel that for some one taller who doesn’t suffer from a serious over swing this could be a great club. The one fault which lies firmly with the club is its awful grip
