- Active recoil channel
- SureFit center of gravity system
The driver comes with the SureFit technology which has been seen in the 917 series. The system uses various weights to balance the driver to your liking. You can move the weight from a neutral position towards the heel or the toes. The design is slightly angled for balancing reasons. The weight are easily adjustable and come in various categories: balanced weight and unbalanced weights. The unbalanced weights can steer the hit left or right with as much as 6 yards.
The driver performs solidly. The chosen materials largely impact the final result as the driver comes with an ultra-thin titanium crown. This allows for the center of gravity to be lower for better distanced and increased forgiveness. The sole features a 8-1-1 Cast Body Active Recoil Channel which increases speed and maximizes the distance. The performance of the driver is further increased by the 16 various loft settings which come under the SureFit Hosel technology. This precision setting can help golfers create a more customized ball flight and can work greatly with difficult hits.
The driver comes with the SP700 Cup Face. This was made from high-resistance titanium to maximize strength while being flexible enough to deliver more speed across the surface, even with off-center hits. The design of the weights is, however, the main focus of the driver. Built with the scope of brining a customized balance and a left/right variation, the system is easy to use once you get used to the various weights. With two available lofts (9.0°, 10.5°), the design is fully customizable and creates one of the most personal golfing experiences.
The Titleist C16 Driver comes at a high cost but that`s mainly because of the chosen materials and the implemented weight system. The titanium build is long lasting and should perform well in difficult conditions. So who is the ideal user of the C16? It is hard to pinpoint an exact user for the driver, but it would mostly benefit intermediate players looking to increase their skills using the latest technologies. It may also work for less experienced golfers who need the extra forgiveness to stay on track with their golfing learning curve. If you can afford the price and are looking for a challenging and fun driver which can maximize your long-distance efforts, then the C16 should be among the top choices.
