Full Answer

The Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 exemplifies adjustability when it comes to golf drivers. With a 460-cubic-centimeter head, the Alpha has movable weights in the heel and toe to correct slices and hooks. The player can tweak the loft to any one of eight settings and can flip a central weight to optimize spin. The club is made out of eight materials, with a light, flexible face.

The Cobra Fly-Z has a large face and an oversized frame. A channel etched into the face's perimeter is designed to help increase ball speed, which in turn results in increased distance. With a stabilizing sole cavity, the Nike Vapor Flex has 15 loft and face-angle settings. The player can tweak the spin and launch angle without changing the loft setting. A weight slug in the sole of the Vapor Flex allows for center of gravity adjustment.

TaylorMade's R15/R15 TP is one of the hottest clubs on the market, with a 12-setting hosel and two sliding weights in the sole. Nearly 75 percent of the R15's mass is in the front of the clubhead, increasing launch angle and limiting spin.
