GTD 455 Plus driver ???
« on: November 16, 2018, 03:24:57 AM »
I must admit, I haven't looked much at any JDM drivers in quite some time. In fact, I have not been looking at any newer drivers lately.
Winter is starting to kick in and playing actual golf is getting rare. That is usually when I start looking into equipment because of boredom.
Stumbled across the GTD 455 Plus driver by accident and I must say that this might be the only JDM driver that looks interesting at the moment. I don't think I'd buy it (pretty steep price tag) but it intrigues me. It has a carbon crown and I do believe there is some benefit to lowering CG. Did look for a few reviews online and it seems to perform well indeed.
Anybody hit this and care to share their thoughts on it?

Don't know how good a proxy the original 455 is to this but if its anything close to the original 455, it'll be a damn good head.  The original is jps loud.  With a carbon crown, I suspect the plus will be a lot less so.
