This is a test of the regular Tornado driver versus the 2010 Tornado driver.

The 2010 hits as far as you would expect a regular old Tornado with +2 Power to hit.

Here are the results:

Image

Base stats were: Power 37, Impact 46, Stamina 12, Skill 188
The regular Tornado was unfitted. The 2010 had the base fittings of +2 Power.

Methodology
For each club, 5 perfect hits were recorded. The pixel at the 100% mark and the 0% mark were identical for all hits. This was verified with a screen magnifier. The distance shown above is the average of the 5 perfect hits.

The resolution used during testing was 1024x768. For all testing, a temperature of 25 degrees was used. Full 3 spin was applied using 5x Shift-<RightArrow>.

A word about 98%-100%

Testing requires that you average a number of perfect hits. This is the result of the tee lie condition of 98%-100%. A full 3 driver hit in the range of the distances above, can vary by 3 yards or so, even though the exact same pixels are struck.

For example, the 2010's shortest hit was 464.2.
For the regular Tornado, the longest hit was 465.7

If one were to just hit a couple of casual hits with these clubs, one could get the wrong impression. Perhaps you get a slightly shorter than average hit on the regular Tornado and a slightly longer than average hit on the 2010, and then come away thinking the 2010 is 5 yards longer! Getting results that can be trusted requires one to hit a series of shots using the exact same pixels.


------

I would like to thank FoZzel who donated some NGs that helped offset the cost of getting the 2010 club. I would also like to thank WhosYouBuddy who donated a Pedora.

Cheers, A

I say this with a smile, so don't read it the wrong way ok? :)

To the people who think there is some magic blue quality, or magic gold quality or magic green quality:

Stop wasting your own time and other peoples' time!

A Tornado is a Tornado to the software of SO.
A Hurricane is a Hurricane.
A Tempest is a Tempest.

Buy them for their pretty colors. Maybe you like roman numerals, so buy them for that.

The only thing you *should* be paying for is the fittings they come with, because that is the ONLY difference. A shining new Purple III FOO club is exactly the same as the 3 year old FOO club, save for the pre-fittings.

Cheers, A
