I went with it on the recommendation of my club fitter, who said he thought I should get the Aldila because I have trouble getting the ball in the air with a 3 wood. I thought the sound and feel were terrible. I was told by the person fitting me that the XL is a very slight draw bias. Give us a call at and try our new Valet Service. The soles of the clubs are a bit shiny but are actually quite sturdy in the fact that they do not scratch easily Despite the super-shiny finish on the sole, and contrary to popular belief, the sole is not easily scratched.

The golf magazine reviews of the Hibore XL in comparison to other drivers always puts it in the middle of the group they really have nothing to great to say about this club. I then went to the golf club, I teed the ball higher than normal, I swung the club as I normally did when I looked up the ball was soaring away into the distance straight down the middle of the fairway.

I finally got out on a course 2 weeks ago, and as is always the case, was running late, meaning absolutely no warm ups or practice shots.
