Re: Persimmon vs MetalPersimmon:
Nice looking, almost artistic when shiny and newly finished.
No better feeling than when you hit one "on the screws" (a rarity for a golfer like me)...no better sound in golf than persimmon, either. If you have never hit a persimmon driver just right, you are missing out on one of the major pleasures of golf, in my opinion.
No worse feeling than not hitting it 'on the screws'...you were guaranteed a 70 yard worm burning drive that sliced like you wouldn't believe. And this happened A LOT for most of us.
Big an ugly, period. At least the finish on the top of the head is shiny.
Very forgiving, even mishits travel far and much straighter than mishit persimmon ever did. Makes golf a pleasure to play from the tee, at least in comparison; less frustration, anger and tears.
Persimmon was great when you hit it right, but I would never go back, metal is much more forgiving and a joy from a playing standpoint.
