I also posted this on GEA, but I know a lot of you are not over there and a lot of them are not here....
Very mini review.
I borrowed the 10.5 regular demo from the local pro shop. What attracted me to it is the closed face. If you abhor a closed face, read no further, LOL. I like it because it meshes with my set up with my hands a bit forward in my Moe-Bryson type swing. I've had to rediscover that this season.
46 inches, D2
304 grams total weight
Butt freq ~4.9 on FCM scale (I added 10 cpm to the gripped reading)
So it's not as light as some of the feather light ones in recent years. The grip looks to be a normal 50 gram one, so that's why.
The shaft is made in Japan, not China. Labeled 50g. Balancing the club, it seems to me that the balance point is higher than normal, but I did not measure it.
I took it to the range and hit 10 or so shots. It swings very balanced and easy. Usually I play a 44 inch driver with a 60-ish gram shaft and 70-something gram jumbo grip. So I was expecting this driver to be ridiculous, but it wasn't. It sent the right feedback to my brain, as in "swing easy", rather than my usual driver feeling of "must KILL". My swing is ~90 MPH.
Aiming between two markers as a medium fairway, every shot hit the fairway. That's huge for me. Almost every one had a very slight draw. In a perfect world, I'd have a tad less closed face, but I can live with a 3-5 yard draw, especially if it is dependable. I dread hooks and would rather fade it 5 yards but so what. I did not try to hit a fade. It was really making me giggle at how easy it was to swing and how straight the d@mn thing went.
Also, I have never been able to center up a 46 inch driver. But this one must fit me well, because I was living in the center. Crazy.
Trajectory: Not high enough for me. Even though I do have a measured upward angle of attack, I hit a low ball, and usually play 12+ degrees. This was flying I would say 40-50 feet high, when at my speed it should be more like 75 feet. Some 10.5's fly plenty high for me, but not this one. So I don't think it is an overly high-launcher. I'm sure it would roll out on a dry fairway though!
Sound: I've seen reviews saying it's loud. They must have been indoors. It's not quiet, it's not muted, but it's not garbage can loud either. Just your basic 460 driver of recent years. Maybe a little better than my 915D2?
Lastly, distance. I dunno. Lacking the needed height, I don't want to speculate. It ran out plenty far, but didn't carry as far as my old Nike gamer. The pro is having his rep drop off a 12 degree for me to try. I'll take the 12 out on the course and put it through the real world distance tests. If it works out, I'm buying it.
