Shaft: Aldila Tour Green 75 TX shaft

Selling Points

  • A.I. technology

You can pick this driver up with a graphite shaft. Rahhm plays the 10.5 loft Epic Speed driver, but it’s also available in 9 and 12 degree versions.

Pros:

  • Great club head speed
  • Carbon crown
  • Helps correct draw bias

Cons:

3-Wood: Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero  – 16.5 Degrees

Shaft: Aldila Tour Green 70 TX shaft

Selling Points

  • Flash Face
  • Forged design
  • Leading edge geometry

 

Key Features:

One of the best things about this fairway wood is that it launches very high.

The head is also surprisingly compact for a wood that delivers this kind of distance. The head is designed for favorable turf interaction as well. The carbon crown reduces weight while the Flash Face expands the sweet spot.

You can choose from 13.5, 15, 16.5 (what Rahm uses) and 18 loft degrees and there are various shaft options as well.

Pros:

  • Stiff or regular flex options
  • Available in left or right-handed
  • High quality stock shaft options

 

Cons:

  • It’s almost too light
  • Low offset

Overall Score: 96/100

5-Wood: Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero – 18 Degrees

Shaft: Aldila Tour Green 70 TX shaft

Selling Points:

  • Aerodynamic head
  • Slim profile
  • T2C Carbon crown

Key Features:

This is a great 5 wood to have in your bag of you prefer low ball flight and want the least amount of spin possible.

This wood also features the Flash Face design so it plays very fast and very forgiving. Plus, you get the option of interchangeable weights depending on your playing style.

The head shape is pretty compact so be aware of that. The slim profile head allows for less drag but it sort of takes away from club head speed for faster swing players. The Mavrik Sub Zero 5 wood is available in 18 degrees of loft which is what Rahm uses.

 

Pros:

  • Weight can be adjusted from 14 grams to 2 grams
  • Good for neutral to fade flight bias
  • Custom shaft options

 

Cons:

  • Pricey
  • Head shape takes getting used to

Overall Score: 96/100
