The black face of the club provides a nice feedback mechanism with the ability to clearly see where the ball is coming back of the face of the club.

I spent machspeex few range sessions playing with various settings and had mixed results. After 20 balls which all went in a small circle I was glad that I had made the purchase.

Tell us what you think here. I would love it for hitting on downwind par 5s, but I will stick with my SuperTri for the timebeing.

Straight is fine with me. I found that the ball flight was too high for my liking, but the feel was impressive.
