Finally had a chance to give this a go. Since my auto accident I feel like I can't really make a turn, so I'm experimenting with some softer shafts as the usual suspects feel like rebar to me.

Even though I feel like I'm swinging like an old man, this head is very sneaky long for me. I'm always surprised how far my drives have gone when I get to the ball, and part of that may be because it's so muted and not really explosive feeling. I'm looking 20 yards before I get to the ball because this time of year they just shouldn't be where they're ending up. 

I hit a drive tonight on #2 at my home track that was probably one of the 5-6 closest I've ever had to that green,  and I play 50 rounds or more a year there for the past 7-8 years. And it was slightly into the wind and the ground is still really soft.

Feel and sound are decent, nothing to write home about. I like the looks and it sets up well. Sometimes I forget how nice the adjustability and easy shaft changes are with these US drivers.

Got rained out yesterday and decided to go to the range today and hit this combo again...

So far, its iffy... when I hit it well, it goes a long way but the consistency is not quite there.  I don;t think its the shaft as I never had this kind of behaviour with the Loop HD in other heads.  One thing I will say though is I;m glad I got a 9,5 in this.  This thing launches easily and I was a bt concerned when I read it was low launching. Not the case for me.

It's also not as if I was having a bad swing day, irons, wedges, and the PXG STP all going well.... Will give it a while more and see how it goes.. a good condition 2017 M1 440 9.5 head and h/c may be in the bst... I hope not though as its a very smart looking head.

I've kinda settled in with the HZRDUS red (what a name) in my M1 440. This thing is bonkers long, just very low spinning.

When I hit on the monitor this winter I was about to get 10-15 yards more out of it than the other drivers I tried and it has definitely shown up on the course.

Feels amazing on well struck shots and gives a ton of feedback on misses, but the misses are better than the feel would indicate. Some of my longest drives have been towards the toe and didn't feel good at all. Found them way farther up the fairway than expected.

Biggest problem is I'm missing both ways right now primarily because I just haven't swung a club much at all for 6-7 months. Played 18 Sunday was actually warm enough and had some time, started out shaky but was pounding it the last 2/3 of the round.

I also picked up the tour issue 2016 M2 T3 fairway with the deep face. Haven't gotten out on the course yet but range time was promising.

I would agree Matt.  On account of your post, I took mine to the range again and the thing is long.  I have the loop HD in it and there is little consistency in the misses.  Left and right BUT, it's not wild slices or crazy draws.  Just slight pushes and pulls but enough to not be the best confidence driver I have.

Exactly where I'm at right now. Just seems easy to miss both ways, but when I'm swinging well I think it's longer than any driver I've ever had. Part of this may be that I'm using a more tip active shaft than in the past because I am still getting my strength and flexibility back from the accident. My good swings result in high, low spin draws and I'm routinely shocked at where I'm finding my drives.

The HZRDUS red has a ton of kick at the bottom and if I go after it it wants to go left. Really favors a smooth swing. Will continue to test and see

Have been playing this all year. Was really struggling with dispersion early but the insane distance kept me interested.

A couple weeks ago it was really windy so I was teeing it down low and voila it really came alive. Much more accurate and have had some excellent driving rounds with it lately. (And a couple duds too but that was the indian and not the arrow)

I'm keeping up much better with my league partner who has always been 20 yards longer with his RBZ tour. The hotmelted tour head feels and sounds awesome too. I find it quite forgiving across the face and even really low strikes get way out there.

If anything I miss a little more left and right but that's probably more a function of the low loft and low spin.
