Titleist 905S Reviews

By Lyle@Nymble

Specs

The 905S driver from Titleist is on the small side with a 400cc head, a full 60cc under the USGA's limit. That means the center of gravity is closer to the club face and produces a more driving ball flight than larger clubs. It's not the biggest on the block, but for players with higher swing speeds, it launches the ball a long way. It's available in lofts of 7.5 to 11.5 degrees with unfortunately fewer choices for left-handed clubs. Two stock shafts are available--the UST Proforce V2 75 and the "Speeder" manufactured for Titleist by Fujikura. The Speeder shaft has a very consistent flex and low torque.

Perks

Built with a traditional and attractive pear-shaped head, all the drivers in the 905 series might bring to mind the classic persimmon drivers of the 1970s but all contain the best in modern technology. The smaller head produces exceptional workability for skilled players with high swing speed and good technique.

Sacrifices

The smaller club head also reduces the size of the sweet spot on this "player's club." High handicappers with slow swing speeds might not feel comfortable with this club and certainly won't get the most out of it.

Bottom Line

An attractive club designed for skilled players with enough pop in the club face to play even the longest courses.
