I would like to introduce to you one of our newest and hottest drivers that will be in stock very shortly called the Power Play Caiman X2. The X2 is the reference to the second generation of one of Hireko’s all-time favorite products. Being the lead product developer for our company I have certain advantages that I am sure the majority of you would just love to have. I get to play and test products long before they are available to the public. It is a tough job, but someone has got to do it.
I had the privilege of testing the first samples back in June of last year. Yes, it does take a lot longer than most people realize for a product to make it to market (which is scheduled to arrive on March 9th). So the arrival of the X2 may seem long overdue for me. Now the pressure is always on when you take a popular model like the original Caiman driver and come out with its replacement. In order for it make the catalog it had to cut the mustard in terms of performance because that’s all you really care about anyway.
Good question. The first thing one will probably notice is the cosmetics. We didn’t want to mess too much with success so it still had the geometric shape reminiscent of its namesake – an Amazonian Black Caiman or the most feared beast in all of South America. But this version has more of refined shape by softening the toe area.
We removed the decal on the crown too. While some customers liked it from an alignment standpoint, it made it a little too busy to the liking of enough golfers to nix it from the X2 version. However, by doing this it made the head look a little bigger, which it is since the original version was really only 452cc and the X2 has a true 460cc volume. Who doesn’t want more confidence off of the tee?

What makes the X2 version outperform the original is what you can’t see. We eliminated approximately 9 grams of weight from the crown using a new manufacturing technique which puts that weight to better use. For those of you asking how do you know it outperformed the original, I took both versions out with identical shafts and did head to head testing with various golfers and it didn’t matter if it was the first version or the fourth and final one that you will get your hands on soon.
Is it time for an upgrade?
Listen up all those previous satisfied users of the Caiman driver; I got a quick few word for you – upgrade. For those of you who hadn’t played the original version but are looking for a new driver to improve your game, the Caiman X2 is probably the best bang for your buck you will find anywhere. If the head R&D guy is bagging one that should say a little about how good this driver is.
