Couple of new boutique drivers

8 posts in this topic

Considering replacing my Mizuno MP Craft head currently paired up with a Seven Dreamers shaft. 

While it is a very stable pair and I am getting good performance,  I don't feel that I am maximizing the distance potential of the shaft.

Found a couple of candidates from recent boutique releases.  

I do like heads that provide softer feel at impact as well as sensibly muted sound.   The SP700 + Carbon Crown combo on the Zodia has a similar construction to the Grandista RS-001 Ver S which I really liked from a sound and feel perspective.   Distance was good too but not as forgiving as I wanted.  I read somewhere that there is only one factory in Japan that can produce Carbon Crown Driver heads..... so if this one is also made in Japan, perhaps it is from the same factory as the Grandista.     Also love the carbon pattern showing on the crown.  Would match the raw carbon look on the Seven Dreamers shaft perfectly!    

No experience with the ZA008 Ti used on the GTD Code K driver.. I think Freiheit drivers also used this ZA008 material.      But it was mentioned that this particular driver came in No.1 in carry distance in a recent 18 driver shootout.   

Zodia Z921CC 
460cc
SP700 face / 811 Ti Body / Carbon Crown

Adjustable hosel 9 deg to 11.75 deg

Like the look of the Zodia at address but I prefer the GTD's sole and face.

Which Craft are you 'potentially' putting to one side, so to speak? :)

That GTD, bar the hosel, looks awesome!

2014 MP Craft 9.5 200g  - It's a really good head   .. More forgiving than it's predecessors for sure.
