Snake Eyes Viper XT driver
By Dominic Pedler - May 2010

Snake Eyes' successful Viper range is now onto its third generation of adjustable weighting. After the Viper Ti-464 and the Viper Tour comes the all-titanium Viper XT offering a whole list of technical refinements. The bullet shape and contoured crown make for an attractive contemporary design that delivers a deep centre of gravity for a higher Moment of Inertia than traditional shaped drivers.

Meanwhile, the Hyper Rib Technology clubface is CNC-milled for consistently fast ball speeds across the entire hitting surface, resulting in maximum distance.

The Viper XT features a distinctive 'drafted stepped' sole design with a rear weight located in the driver's sole. These combine to push the weight low and rearward for what Snake Eyes describes as “the one-two punch for longer drives”. The weight is removable and can be replaced with heavier screws that will increase the launch angle but without increasing the spin rate.

The impressive Aerotech 'Hoop Wind' Hi-technology graphite shaft fitted as standard enjoys a special manufacturing process (involving the careful layering of graphite about its longitudinal axis) that maintains its round profile throughout the swing thereby eliminating unwanted oscillation of the clubhead.

To ensure the most consistent performance, the shaft is individually hand-PURE'd by Golfsmith before assembly, improving the proportion of central strikes on the face by up to 44%.

Available in 9.5°, 10.5°, 11.5° & 14° lofts (left hand: 10.5° & 14°) in A, R & S shafts. Custom assembled to order. £189.
