Yonex’s Ezone Elite 2 Driver has a vertical polish design which improves shot direction and minimising side spin, helping you drive straighter. Here is what Carly Frost thought when she put it through its paces.

Traditionally, a clubface is polished horizontally, but the EZONE ELITE 2 has adopted a vertical polish, a design that eliminates the need for grooves on the face, improving shot direction and minimising side spin, helping your drives fly straighter. Octaforce Neo technology in the crown provides a reduction in weight for a lower and deeper centre of gravity, ensuring a higher, distance-enhancing trajectory. The same technology in the clubface provides a 10% larger sweet spot for maximum repulsion and forgiveness.
This is a really unique driver, the first thing that caught my attention is the lack of grooves on the clubface. It makes the hitting area look really expansive and difficult to miss. I also found it very forgiving, my mishits were nowhere near as destructive. The sound was powerful and the feel very solid. With its striking plum-coloured clubhead that dazzles in the light, it will definitely stand out on the first tee.
