TaylorMade seem to have flattened a lot of their woods, ie they seem to have lower lofts than in the past. That does mean the ball flies a lot lower, which is great in windy conditions, but it also comes in faster/hotter so tends to run on. Maybe that's just me? Easy to "stripe" down the middle of a fairway, even narrow ones. Tricky to stop on elevated greens. Looks great, sounds fantastic. Love it.
Pros:Looks great, sounds fantastic. Forgiving, even on fairly dry lies.
Cons:Very low flight path has to be from lower than advertised lofts of the faces. (I own the 3, 5 and 5HL) None of these clubs pops the ball up in the air like my 3 hybrid does (not a TaylorMade). That does make it difficult (for me) to truly know what distance the ball will travel as it runs on quite a bit.
