Quality: 

Quality and construction is as good as any other driver. Nothing wrong at all.

Pros: 

When this driver came out a few years ago. it was reported to be one of if not the longest drivers you could buy. It was also reported to be quite foregiving. Two things that most golfers look for in a driver. I've only hit this driver at the range one day, but as far as I can tell, it lives up to those reports. It's very long, and easy to hit well

Cons: 

About the only thing I don't like about this driver is the shaft being R flex. It's not much softer than the S flex shafts in my other drivers, but enough to cause some lose of control. This is in no way a fault of the shaft, but a fault of it not fitting my swing.

Summary: 

If you are looking for a long, foregiving driver this one is well worth checking out. If you don't want to spend a lot of money for a driver, this one is really worth buying. The driver was sold as 'pre-owned' with no head cover, but the one I received was like new, with only a few small marks on the bottom of the head from the head touching the grass when used. Nothing you wouldn't see if you played 18 holes with a brand new driver. I also found a like new Comp head cover at a local Golfsmith for $5, so a lack of head cover isn't a real issue. Bottom line is this is a great driver, especially for the money. If you can't keep up with your foursome with this driver, don't blame the driver, it's your fault.
