fat bastard square driverI’ve had the Fast Bastard Square Driver in the can for a while. I’ve needed to bust this one out and get it off my old list of products to cover.

Technology

Square technology has been around for a while and I haven’t been a fan. I like more traditional shaped clubs. The square technology improves the club’s MOI (moment of inertia) and helps prevent the club from twisting and turning on shots which aren’t centered on the face. In other words, off center hits go straighter and farther.

The head and face of the Fat Bastard Driver are made out of high grade Titanium.

Looks

Despite being square The Fat Bastard Square Driver is surprisingly pretty. It didn’t take me too long to get over the odd look of the square head when standing over the ball.

On the course

I found the Fat Bastard Driver to be possibly the easiest driver to hit that I’ve ever played. Maybe the shaft was perfect for my “upright granny over the top double chicken wing lunge” swing, or maybe this club’s design really works. The ball looks great in the air and with the “game improvement” features I never saw the right rough. By “game improvement” I mean closed face, which is for the average golfer to prevent slicing.

Head cover

The head cover for the Fat Bastard is awesome. I love the magnetic covers these days.

I have a big problem with the FB Square Driver which I brought up to my pals at FB Golf. The driver is only available in 10.5 degrees. This may be one factor in why it is so easy to hit. The problem with that loft is that I couldn’t get any distance out of the club. The flight looks great, but with that extra loft I lose about 20 yards compared to other drivers.

Conclusion

If you have a problem getting it up, so to speak, this may be a good club for you to try. However, if you have plenty of height on your drives it may not be the right club for you.

I may see if I can get this thing bent down to a 9.5. If I can get a few more yards out of this baby while keeping it as easy to hit, it just might find a way into my regular bag.

    Now who thought out this interesting name. If you have problems centering the ball this club sounds great. Yes my guys( senior golfers) might have a problem with this club due to the distance issues.

  2. Dennis says:

    I love the name, but it doesn’t seem to be a players club. Make sure to report the results of your de-loft attempt.

    Does anyone know if they make these Square Drivers with lower loft degrees?
