Callaway launches new Mack Daddy 4 Tactical wedges

Published

on

Earlier this year, Callaway released its Mack Daddy 4 wedges, which were armed with Groove-In-Groove Technology and “Nip-It” grooves to provide more spin. Now, industry legend Roger Cleveland and Callaway R&D, with heavy influence from Tour pro input, have launched the brand new Mack Daddy 4 Tactical Wedge.

The Mack Daddy 4 Tactical features a limited edition Black Tour Issue Shaft and Lamkin Tactical Grip. The Mack Daddy 4 Tactical also features a sharp new Tactical PVD finish, Black PVD Face and black medallions for an aggressive look.

According to Callaway, The Mack Daddy 4 is the most rigorously tested and Tour-validated wedge that they have ever offered. The new wedge is said to provide more compact shape, straighter leading edge, tighter leading-edge radius and slightly more offset compared to their Mack Daddy 3 range. All features were included to provide maximum spin and control from tight lies.

The Mack Daddy 4 Tactical is available in both Callaway’s S and X grind options. Here is a rundown of what both grinds will provide, according to Callaway

  • S-Grind: “Medium-width sole with slight chamber at the back and moderate heel relief to keep the leading edge low through impact, promoting solid contact on open-faced shots. 10º bounce.”
  • X-Grind: “The newest grind features a narrow, high-bounce crescent sole, with the low point near the front. Excellent for moderate-to-steep attack angles and medium-to-soft course conditions. 12º bounce.”

Available lofts include  50, 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60-degree options, all of which will be available for both right and left-handed players. The Mack Daddy 4 Tactical will be in stores from the 21st of Sept. and will cost $179.99.

Callaway will be donating a portion of the proceeds for the Mack Daddy 4 Tactical to the Birdies For The Brave Foundation, a national military outreach initiative. All active, reserve, retired, and military veterans are eligible for a 15 percent discount on the new release from Callaway, which will be available here.

    I don’t care for the tactical grooves, the strategic grooves seem to work better for me.

New ultra-lightweight Wilson D7 driver features 192-gram clubhead, RE-AKT Technology

Published

on

Wilson Golf has unveiled its latest driver, the Wilson D7, which with its superlight design, aims to provide golfers with a driver that produces greater clubhead speed with added forgiveness.

The Wilson D7 driver contains a clubhead which weighs just 192 grams and features RE-AKT Technology plus a combination of superlight design and reactive face technology, the combination of which aims to deliver faster clubhead speeds and ball speeds for added distance.

The new Wilson D7 driver features a (K)omposite lightweight crown design, which has helped the company to lower the CG position of the driver. The composite crown is made with a layer of Kevlar sandwiched between layers of carbon fiber, which aims to offer improved sound off the clubface while dampening any unwanted vibration.

This 2019 Wilson driver contains a fixed hosel and weighs in at just 280-grams total weight. The idea behind the lightness of the driver is to offer slower-swing speed golfers the chance to increase their club speed significantly.

Speaking on the new release from Wilson, Jon Pergande, Global Innovation Manager at Wilson Golf stated

“The process of creating the D7 driver started with designing the head shape and then stripping out all available weight, almost 25 grams. This weight was strategically returned to the head with the goal of improving the sound of the driver and optimizing ball flight with Dynamic Launch Control.”

In the Wilson D7 driver, golfers will have the opportunity of choosing between three different lofts (9, 10.5, 13 degrees).

The 9-degree driver is targeted for players with a faster swing speed, with internal weights moved forward in the aim of reducing spin and offering a lower launch. The 10.5-degree option is designed for golfers with a moderate-to-fast swing with weighting towards the middle to provide for more spin and a higher launch, while the 13-degree option is aimed at those with a slow-to-moderate swing speed with weighting further back for a high launching and spinning driver.

The Wilson D7 driver contains the new UST-Mamiya Helium Series shaft, which is available in A-flex (45 grams), R-flex (46 grams) and S-flex (57 grams). The new release also contains Wilson’s Staff MicroLite Lamkin grip, which weighs just 28 grams.

The driver will hit retail stores on January 21 and will cost $299.99.
