Jacob Streiff says:

The “G” is for Gimmick

Joe525 says:

but compared to alot of other drivers you test you were hitting strait like every time.. it must be extremely forgiving.. I’ve seen you struggle to hit straight with other drivers

Dtyler171 says:

Theoretically the vertical grooves vs horizontal could actually decrease backspin numbers… but grooves don’t do a whole lot on drivers (as you said).

I agree with the other comments, though, you could have used a higher loft with this club. Your spin was good but your launch was low

Also…43 yards is a big hook for you? Didn’t you used to play something like that as your stock shot? lol

rick williams says:

Rick I don’t under stand,at 6:05 in the video it says 1.6 deg path in to out. and face open 1,6deg. to path .shouldn’t the ball flight be straight?

anasurimbor01 says:

Any company that would pay Daly to use their product must be desperate.

Kevin mc donnell says:

rick, when that software shows “club face open” etc, is that open to your path, or open to target line??

Gary Verth says:

wish I could say it’s gone nowhere at 290 lol

Nicholas Cabrera says:

40% straighter? I bet I can overcome that with my mighty slice.

Thomas Jones says:

By any chance, have you “tested” the BombTech Driver and accomplished a video like you have on the Vertical Driver? I am impressed with your commentary and testing….

Jamie Purvis says:

Rick with your Nike connections can you get Rory on ?

backflipjeff11 says:

You should do a head to head with this and the new grenade 2 driver!!!!!

OxiClean says:

Good numbers aside, it’s one ugly ass driver. And I’d feel like a tool on the course saying: “Hey guys, check out my *vertical Grooove* driver!”

muhsin anas says:

why the beard.

Etienne van Bosch says:

you talk way too much! just hit more and talk less. we can all google stats of clubs… just a suggestion

todd harrison says:

you do notice you were not hitting them as left as normal. and you are hitting it the same distance as pretty much any other driver..just sayin

Mike Rohr says:

literally the first time you havent hit every ball left of the target line on any review and you aren’t happy?

sharkhark says:

Get your short buddy to hit it then he’s not a pro like you I’d like to see if his shots go straighter

Josh Daly says:

The guy who came up with this was baked

GahDub says:

So….you’re saying it’s worth the 400 bucks…yeah?

WeeWillyII says:

There’s more snake oil in golf equipment than any other sport on earth.

WeeWillyII says:

Wonder why John Daly endorses it? $$$$$$$

Golfholics says:

Never heard of that driver. Check out our golf vlogs!

John Cameron says:

Hit the fucking ball while we are young.

Happy Duffer says:

Vertical grooves are not really new but are somewhat unique… the Killer Bee B Sting designed by Tony Antonious had vertical grooves back in 2006.

Doug Luettke says:

not sure if it will make you hit it straighter.

Solesneak says:

Stop talking hit the ball

Johnny S says:

Thank you for an honest review Rick. I really enjoy your videos!

Craig Jones says:

Haha, I’ve never heard it phrased like that, Archer not the Arrow I’ve heard before.
