Guide Review - MAC Powersphere Driver by Burrows Golf

What jumps out about the MAC Powersphere is the "powersphere" itself - an inverted cone (meaning it goes up into the clubhead) on the sole of the club. "MAC" stands for "magnitude amplification cavity." When the clubface strikes the ball, creating vibrations, the cone reflects vibrations back into the clubface and ball. Which means far less wasted energy and a clubface that is hot along its entire face. Bill Rogers, 1981 British Open champion, told me no driver he's used has been more forgiving on heel and toe hits. Another advantage of the cone: Reflecting vibrations back into the clubface means far less vibration travels up the shaft - a great feature for golfers with hand, wrist or arm problems.
