    I thought Rose uses the M3 440 not the 460 version?

    99% of all golfers worldwide cannot play his 8.5º TM M3 driver. It’s uncontrollable at low clubhead speeds. Keep deluding gearhead geeks.. lol

    Just a stupendous all-around player. Not sure why lack of majors or wins stateside.

      Did you not see him do all he could to lose it on 18? THAT’s the reason he doesn’t have more wins — he struggles down the stretch just like many players do. I genuinely hope he improves in that area, because I love his game.

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.
