It is pretty obvious that GigaGolf’s TRX Trac 460 Ti driver is channeling TaylorMade’s SLDR. GigaGolf even compares its club to that model on the front page of its website.
At $99, the first impulse is to dismiss the club as just a cheap knockoff—the type contructed of aluminum and zinc that you find at shady “golf shows” in hotel lobbies.
A closer inspection of the TRX Trac’s stats suggests otherwise. It’s got a titanium body, and a forged VFT cup face. The VFT face, Gigagolf says, makes it consistently hotter than similar faces. They also say it makes the club more durable than a more typical piece welded model.
As with the SLDR, the Trac has a forward center of gravity and a sliding weight adjustment. What it doesn’t have is an adjustable hosel.
I’ve tested a couple of GigaGolf clubs over the years and have found them to be solid, if derivative. If you’re leery, they do have a 30-day play guarantee that should take the risk out of trying.
