Drivers are USGA limited to 5900, so they are all pretty much the same. The square models will be higher than the round ones on the whole though. The Nike and Cleveland are the highest. But, to be honest, more driver MOI is a crutch at best. Practice with an old persimmon driver, and learn to make solid, center contact, and you'll feel the modern driver is almost too easy to hit.

Beau Rials is right. It's the Hammer X with the X-shaft. I believe the MOI is 116,200. I added 127 yards to my drives with it. In fact, I stopped hunting with a scoped rifle and exclusively use the Hammer X. NASA contacted me to request that I stop hitting golf balls in the state of Alabama! Kra-kow!

I'm sorry...I saw the infomercial this morning. To me, it is the Citizen Kane of commercials. Jack Hamm is on Facebook, too. Check it out...

Diamond Tour Golf Flying V- I can only hit it striaght! If you like boring golf from middle of fairway,this club is the one. Your fellow golfers will snicker and giggle when they see it, but after they hit it, they will want one!

I have 12degree with Pro Launch Platium shaft (45")

Even though they say it is banned,it doesn't come up on USGA list of non-conforming drivers(as of 5-24-10)

The USGA can't list

every non-conforming driver ever made, so of course it may not be there. Just because it's not on thier banned list doesn't mean it's not illegal. In fact, to play a driver in a tournament, it's quite the opposite, it must be approved for play. This thing doesn't conform, that's for sure.

There is nothing in the design of the Flying V that would make it illegal. BTW, I bought the head before they had the banned banner on it

Yes there is, appendix II, rule 4a:

The clubhead must be generally plain in shape. All parts must be rigid, structural in nature and functional. The clubhead or its parts must not be designed to resemble any other object. Sub-section: Severe or Multiple Cavities in the Outline of the Back of the Head: A severe cavity is one in which the entrance of the cavity is narrower than its width at any other point. Multiple cavities are not permitted (see Figures 32c and d). Cavities in the crown of the head are permitted, even if they are primarily designed for sighting, aiming or head alignment, or to accommodate markings for such aids (see Figure 32e). However, cavities in the crown of a driver head are filled for the purposes of evaluating the head’s volume (see Design of Clubs, Section 4b(i)). See fig 32. c:

Hammer drivers don't conform. They're just a marketing stunt.

and hippo hybrids aren't that extreme.

The Flying V cavity is larger at entrance,so it conforms.

fair enough about that.

But the site doesn't state it's the heads fault. it's the COR that's the problem!
The current USGA rule limiting the coefficient of restitution of a clubhead states that the COR cannot be higher than a measurement of 0.830. This means that when the clubhead impacts the ball, there cannot be more than an 83-percent transfer of the energy of the head to the ball.

so the "flying V" has a cor of more than 0.83.......

after i posted that, i realized that the hippo hybrids like the hex head in your post look like pic (b) which is legal according to the rule. Im sure Ive seen some hybrids or woods somewhere on ebay that look like (d) but I guess it wasnt the hippo ones. Though i really dont see why they would be nonconforming, they do look odd at address and I dont think they would be easier to hit.

    • do we really need fancy putters
      I guess this is where the old saying "never sell or give away a putter" comes from. If what you're using goes sour, you'll have something in your closet that will work!
    • What do you HATE the most about golf?
      Of course we don't hate golf overall, only on certain days. When you have a bad day, what do you hate most about golf? For me it's probably when starting the round off well, thinking "this is going to be a great round", only to hit a few shanks in a row and ruin everything. You get your hopes up, and then your hopes get crushed. So I guess how hard it is to get consistency in my shots. That's really what I hate about golf.
    • The Biggest Secret? SLIDE Your Hips
      I see this is an "oldie but goodie", and I certainly didn't want to wade through 46 pages of content. But just from reading the title of the thread, and this last page, I second that emotion. You have to slide your hips before you turn them! But, how much? I used to do a drill I called the "door jamb" drill. You would set up in an empty door jamb with the outside of your left foot, for a right hander, up against the jamb. You would mimic a swing, and, on the down swing, let your hips "slide" until your left hip hit the jamb. Only then would you start to turn your hips. This puts your left hip directly above your left foot. Thinking back, I used to play a lot of golf with a friend who moved West many years ago. Big guy, 6'4" and 220, but basically an arms and upper body swinger. He could still hit the ball long, but once in a while, by accident, he'd get his lower body involved and then he would crush it like Daly! Every time he did that I'd tease him by saying, "Yeah! You really got your big, fat, left ass cheek into that one, dintcha?!"
    • Reading Greens
      Speaking of stopping half way, I got some of my best reads today by walking halfway between the ball and hole and just taking a look. I was playing in an informal 2 man scramble with some buds for the grand prize of beers and dogs! On the very first hole, an easy par 5, we're putting for eagle. I putt first, and 3 feet from the hole we think the ball is in. A foot from the hole it breaks right and I graze the edge. I mark, and stand aside while my buddy putts. I'm about halfway and from there I can clearly see the subtle little mound in the green that the cup was cut in. You could not see it from behind the ball. Believe me, we checked! I've long been a proponent of letting my feet inform my brain, but if your eyes can't see everything then your feet can't feel everything. They have to work together to get the best read.
    • A Forum Just for Golfing?
      I'm not sure how this applies to my response?  I said if there were something free I'd use it vs build it and, if I wanted to build something just for the heck of it, I would expect that to be free or almost free as well.  This is true, is it not?  I don't consult on how to build internet forums . . . why would I know anything about what free forum software comes with hosting servers?  I assume there is some.
