I would driscribe my swing as more of a traping wing then a sweep when I am hitting of the fairway. Thus, that eliminates a 3 wood, so I went with a four wood but I was sceptical. I bought a Zevo 4 wood and I tank it! I hit the club about 240 and the ball flight is a high draw which is great. Highly recommend the four wood.

I saw this driver sitting in a local golf store and liked the look of it. As it was on special offer I took a plunge and bought it. I have not been disappointed. Although it is only 9.5 degrees I have not had any problem getting the ball in the air and I have had less problems with hooking and slicing than any other driver I have used. I had become used to the "ting" noise my Callaway Steelhead gave and was initially disappointed with the feel from the Zevo. After a few rounds I was more than happy with all aspects of the performance. I find it straight, long and forgiving. I am confident using it on holes where I used to reach for my 3 iron. It has the happy knack of making me look a much better golfer than I really am!

The shaft broke at the hosel after 2 weeks but was replaced without question by Zevo. Turnaround was a bit slower than Callaway have been but no real problems.

These clubs come custom fitted only. It has 9* loft and a 9-shaft (I was told for swing speeds 95 to 100mph). The club head looks elegant and expensive which probably explains why it cost that much (got it for US$500).

First time I tried it on the range, I was spraying it all over the place. The shaft seemed to be too whippy, according to some of my regular foursome. Brought it to the course and I just couldn't hit the fairway. Hit only 2 of 14 fairways. Following day, same result. Used it for 4 more rounds and the promised distance and accuracy weren't there. It came to a point where I couldn't trust it and was contemplating selling it and going back to my 975D (11.5* loft with Graffaloy 3.5 shaft). Everytime I had this driver in my hands, it was a lottery.

Finally, it all came together after I had a swing fault corrected. I was getting desperate and depressed because my driving was going way south.

Last weekend, I played 2 rounds. Saturday, I hit 3 of 12 fairways. Sunday, I hit 9 of 14 fairways, the 3 of 5 I missed were in light rough inches from the fairway, 1 was hit way too long and caught the water hazzard, the other was a stupid pull to a lateral hazzard. What's interesting was that I didn't have to swing any harder. In fact, I was swinging much easier and smoother compared to my 975D where I had to jump out of my socks. The shaft flex helped a lot in giving a nice "kick" at impact. Now I know why it's a little whippy.

One problem with this club though is that if you need to change the shaft, only Zevo can do this. The hosel is unique to Zevo (for lie angle purposes). My regular custom club maker wouldn't touch it. Gotta ship the club back to Zevo, if ever, to have the shaft replaced. I don't know if Zevo will sell the hosels to end-users or club makers.

I would recommend this club for mid- to low-handicappers.
