Bought a persimmon driver ... what to expect ? - Page 2

post #19 of 21

 I remember the sound of persimmon drivers as the most beautiful sound I have ever heard of a club hitting a ball. Metal drivers will never produce that sound.

 

Similar to wood baseball bats vs aluminum softball bats. The sound wood makes when hitting a ball is totally different.

I like to take my old laminated and persimmon woods to the range, get a hitting station next to a guy with the latest shiny new driver, and then whack balls that go about as far and straight as his.

Also interesting to note that modern "hybrids" are basically the same setup as old persimmon or maple fairway woods. Very similar club length and head size.

I took a Lynx Persimmon driver to the range today. I had a big head LX driver and Palmer PHD and the Persimmon. I hit both the oversized drivers ok but with a fade, which I have learned to live with, I hit a few balls with the persimmon. They went straighter, a little higher and seemed to land a few yards past the other ones, it wasn't until I got home that I realized I took the Persimmon 3 wood to the range instead of the driver.
