Powerbilt might not be the first name on the tip of your tongue when you think of golf companies. However, it was one of the first golf companies ever established – and became part of the Louisville Slugger family. The company’s new Air Force One DFX driver is a true blast from the past.
Featuring Powerbilt’s patented “Nitrogen Charged” technology – which means nitrogen gas has been injected into the clubhead – the new Air Force One DFX driver packs a ton of punch for players of any caliber.
The matte-black finish on the clubhead is both stylish and traditional, projecting a “no nonsense” look and feel. With a clubshaft that is a bit longer than standard, the Powerbilt Air Force One DFX was made for those lacking — or searching for even more — distance off the tee. Powerbilt offers two versions of the driver, the Tour Black and MOI Black, in addition to a full slate of fairways, hybrids and irons.
A recent range session with the AFO DFX left me both impressed and confused as to why Powerbilt hasn’t come out with clubs more often.
The distances I observed were consistent with my Big Bertha Alpha – if not slightly longer – and the price point (MSRP $299) might give Powerbilt the edge in that regard. Stock shaft options from Aldila, Graphite Design and Fujikara only add to the club’s value. This is a really, really solid driver that you should definitely consider if you’re in the market.
The only criticism I have for the driver is how loud it is at impact. Like… really loud. I prefer a muted, solid sound at impact with all my clubs, but the Powerbilt Air Force One DFX produces a high-pitched, “slapping” sound when hit.
That being said, players looking for a new driver at a moderate price point while maintaining high performance and distance cannot go wrong with the new Powerbilt Air Force One DFX driver.
