DISTANCE + STRAIGHTNESS = The eRook II Driver! The brand new eRook II is unquestionably a driver value contemplating for a variety of gamers. Let’s begin with the fundamentals. It’s 450cc’s, that is an adjustable driver face angle, loft, lie, head weight, weight bias. Within the impartial setting, the face angle sits at 0.5* open. The usual head weight is approx 200g.
JIGEN the precise model of the brand new eRook II driver is driver design-focused and that is their second product to hit market. The primary mannequin the eRook RK55z was successful in Japan, often called a really straight low spin membership with glorious distance now the eRook II is totally redesigned from the bottom up and it exhibits.
The middle of gravity distance, depth, and top together with gravity angle was deliberately designed to present the participant equal to raised efficiency than most of the most well-known golf manufacturers drivers. It is a 3 piece construction (excluding the hosel adapter and weights.) The eRook II is manufactured from the well-known (Physique) Ti811 titanium that’s wax precision forged whereas the (FACE) is manufactured from Ti-180 which is pressed into the construction, lastly the massive encompassing crown/physique is thermal strain molded Carbon Fiber Bolstered Plastic or (CFRP).
Does that imply something to you? nicely numerous R&D as gone into this driver in comparison with many different boutique manufacturers which is why the brand new eRook II actually performs. The symmetry wing rib organized within the only real does two massive issues, it transmits repulsive vitality to the ball with extraordinarily low loss and the way they obtain that is by controlling rigidity and vibration for a stronger straightness.
The large CFRP carbon-encompassing crown offers this head a surplus of weight to make the most of, which for a driver designer is a luxurious. On this case, the designers at JIGEN redistributed the load financial savings largely to the only real and mixed with the additional weight adjustment screws on the outside of the membership head additional lowered the CG whereas sustaining their supreme traits in order that the eRook II match the wides vary of participant attainable.
The result’s a powerful and straight ball flight with very low backspin and whenever you mix this with adjustability this driver turns into a really compelling alternative. The adjustment sleeve actually works nicely in dialing in your trajectory loft angle, lie angle, and face angle with a complete of eight positions.
A Dedication to the hitting sound is essential. The important thing know-how to the brand new eRook II is its Symmetry Wing Rib SWR and in a nutshell, it stabilizes the habits of the top efficiency for a straighter ball flight. However JIGEN took it one other step additional and designed the top with glorious vibration/sound/really feel as a key attribute. They examined numerous prototypes and located that by tweaking their SWR symmetrical rib design they had been in a position to get practically no vitality loss or pointless reverberation.
One other factor that impressed me after I tried it was the habits of the top. The top strikes obediently within the path wherein the shaft swings and the ball goes out in that path. You don’t really feel the twist of the left and proper heads. Higher gamers who we had examined the brand new golf equipment observed a discount in spin and a tighter dispersion. guys within the 2000-2200 rpm vary would frequently see 2000 or just below.
So who is that this for? Nearly everybody. if you wish to scale back spin, hit it straighter and lengthy then this membership is for you. A powerful male can alter the CG place, loft, lie, head weight, and face angle to satisfy their wants whereas a feminine can add the lightest weights, alter the loft and face angle, and lowest CG to satisfy her wants. 192g on the lightest and 204g on the heaviest. I’m gaming mine at a closed face at approx 195g.
The retail worth is approx $800 USD on the top and TourSpecGolf provides a wide range of shaft and grip choices together with customized builds. By the way in which, set up is free with the acquisition of the top/shaft/grip from us.
The adjustable weights normal is 3 x 2.5g (aluminum) and 9.5g (tungsten) with non-obligatory 5.7g (stainless) and seven.0g or 11.5g (tungsten) weights. TourSpecGolf is promoting every weight for $20 every.
These days JDM manufacturers are promoting head covers individually alone with the wrench. Headcover is $60 and the Wrench is $45 with further adjustable sleeves at $45. I might most likely skip the headcover and go for an aftermarket model however so far as the top goes proper now I believe the eRook II is the perfect driver on the JDM scene
