Quality: 

Head is sound and great performer. As expected, standard shaft is junk.

Pros: 

Am pleased with the following:1. Clubhead looks sound and square at address2. Feel of club and ball contact is very satisfying3. Trajectory is good, solid and not too high.4. Carry is excellent and 7-10 yards longer than Callaway C4, Ping Tisi Tec and Taylor Made 360 and Wilson Deep Red 365cc5. Spin or ball rpm off the face seems average and I get same role as with as with the Taylor Made 360 and Wilson Deep Red. Role is somewhat less than the Ping Tisi Tec.6. Accuracy is good. Same as Callaway and Ping; a bit less than Wilson.OVERALL - bmore distance (carry + role). Will try different shafts to hopefully increase accuracy.

Cons: 

Standard order shaft is not well suited to club. Too long, too much torque and too low flex pt. OK for high handicappers. Better players will want different shaft.

Summary: 

My playing stats for reference:handicap 7, driver swing speed 95mph.SUMMARY - Super distance and worth the investment. Length beats the Ping Tisi TEC, Callaway C4, Wilson Deep Red and Taylor Made 360. !! Be sure to get a better suited shaft!!
