Roddio Deepback Driver...

Roddio Driver review...
So itís no secret that Iíve had a few Teething issues with my Roddio Driver, from the off it went missing, along with a set of irons , only to turn up in a Box that looked like the plane had actually run over it!!

I actually couldnít believe it when 5 out of the 7 irons were Damaged but the Driver and shaft actually survived unarmed , apart from the Head Cover!!( I could live with that!!)

So letís Talk about the club.....
The Quality is Fantastic, infact Stunning!
The High gloss finish on the Lunar Shaft is better than most cars...
I had mine built at 44Ē and asked for a Heavier Head weight ...
At this point Iíd like to give you some detail on said weight but unfortunately the Build wasnít the Best!
After only hitting 6 golf balls the club developed a rattle, which I guess could be part blamed on the Trauma this had suffered during its flight to me...

The rattle turned out to be a few 2/3gram round weights that had only been stuck down with Double sided tape!

The feel of the club was off and so to was the Balance, so while i was on my Golf Trip we arranged to go see said builder and address rattle...

Now Iím not sure many know but to gain access to the head your need a Roddio tool to remove the 3 weighted screws and guess what Roddio donít allow or supply end user with it!!

Anyway long story short the Builder has another go at repairing  the problem and guess what  with in a few balls it developed the same fault only this time I was some 4500mes away from builder.

Thatís when I decided to take matters into my own hands.....

I totally stripped the club, shaft and shaft adapter ... added a 8 gram tip weight, which bought the Lunar shaft alive.... lofted the Head up 1* and added 7 gram to the head..

Wow... what a Golf club...
The sound is more of the Old style Drivers, with a muted thud , not loud or tinny just Solid!

Flight is Strong, but without Ballooning ..lots of roll
Feel is subjective but  itís solid.. out the middle area itís sweet lower down the face is hard and the feel some what drops off....

Itís playing 44Ē and Iíve noticed Iím down a couple of mph but the Distance is good... itís a Fairway Finder..

Iím so happy that I stuck this out and had the balls to experiment and gaining the info needed to build this how I wanted doing in the first place...


Next up is a shoot out with another Compact Driver...
Oh and a Roddio Hybrid!!

Good to hear that it worked out for you.
Just yesterday had a look at the compact driver at a golf shop. Looks good on picture and even better in hand.

Currently using a Baldo Brassy as a fairway finder. Might be some yards behind the other guys but definatley hitting more fairways

That's a lot of crap.. too much actually.  Do you know what it is?  I think the silver stuff is hardened post melted tip weight?

Most of it is Double sided foam tape!!
With Squares of lead tape.....
