Baldo Deep Faced Drivers?
« on: December 10, 2020, 08:21:37 PM »
I am a sucker for deep face drivers for some reason. They have put out quite a few over the years but there just isn’t much feedback or info in English or translatable Japanese that I can find. Anyone here had much experience with them? It seems the newer ones are all Dat 55 which in my experience hasn’t lent itself to great feel to me.

I had the Baldo 911D a while back.  SP700 face IIRC and felt good.  Wasn;t the longest for me but I didn;t give it a fair shake as the baldo name doesn't quite sit well with me. Give it a shot. Quite a good looker too.

Another deep faced SP700 face head I can think of is the Astro Tour VIII.

I think I’m going to try the 568 420cc head. It has tremendous reviews and is a head size I don’t currently have.

I was looking to get the 568 StrongLuck 420, but got the TTX StrongLuck 460 last month.  Have also played the 911S, TA001, and 568LC, and a couple older ones.   The TTX seems to launch lower than my current 568LC.  I just put my 5th shaft on the TTX, still experimenting - only have one more left (the same shaft I have on the 568LC).  Feel is subpar, but could be due to cooler weather.  Distance fine.  One thing I have noticed about Baldo drivers is that there doesn't seem to be much difference between different models.  All were good though, just not too different.

The JBeam ZY series is infamously deep faced.

Interesting. The 568 seems to be universally loved more than the TTX which according to those reviews seems not to have had the good feel the 568 seems to have. I also read another review that said the same thing as you—Baldo doesn’t really change much just the cosmetics.

Yes the JBeam was eye catching but my experiences with the 435 really soured me on their drivers. I should look up some reviews on that one.

Had a Baldo (568?) Competizione 460. Great looks and finish. Feel not bad but not special either. Even though deeper faced but seemed a bit higher spinning for me at that time. Therefore, shorter in distance than other drivers for me. Pretty unspectacular overall. But I find they always look great.
Driver: Callaway Epic Subzero
3FW: Kamui TP-XF

5-PW: PRGR RS Forged
GW: 50* CGS Orion Spy Type S
SW: 56° Ping Glide 3.0
LW: 60° Ping Glide 3.0
Putter: Yes! Tracy 2

This is good feedback maybe I should just get the new OM I liked the feeling of the one I had for a while it just launched way too high for me.
