“The new Krank Formula 7 is by far the best and longest driver head in the world. I recently did a Trackman session to try out the Formula 7 and compare it to my older Krank drivers….the results were mind blowing! The Formula 7, straight out it’s wrapper, was on average 2mph faster than my gamer along with significantly less spin. I ended up hitting 4 of my longest balls ever on Trackman with the Formula 7 the first time using it. Lance Reader and Krank Golf have really outdone themselves with this amazing new driver!”
