Default Patriot looks like JLS

I have come to love my Rivals and Patriots, and I after testing lots of new drivers I throw 7 speed drivers more than my 11 speed drivers in nearly all situations.

I ordered some Millennium plastic for a friend who just started playing and that new run of Sirius JLS looks BADASS and it appears to be almost exactly the same as the Patriot.

Just goes to show all old becomes new again.

So, you are saying the JLS is between the Patriot and Rival?

Patriots are a pretty fast mold. The JLS is super slow. It's the Polecat of drivers.

How is that possible? It is the same 7 speed rim on both.

Rim width on a Patriot is 1.8 cm and JLS is 1.6 cm.

Speed is a made up number, that is manufacturer specific. A 7 to Legacy might be a 9 or 10 to Innova.

Oh OK, well that might explain difference. I honestly thought they were the same size.
