Yet real-world testing alongside testing upon simulators proved these gains were harder to come by, as well as within a few instances did not come at all.

This longer shaft upon the Octane resulted in higher swing speeds as well as greater ball speed, yet an additional result included more off-center hits as well as a reduction in the median driving distance. The highly skilled one-handicapper was losing in between five to eight yards with the Octane, as compared with the Diablo Edge. However, it must be noted, that the one-handicappers out there will be more likely to choose the Tour model.
