    For the regular golfer, getting fit for single length irons would be a long and expensive process, it would be pointless to buy off the rack single length irons. That is why the other major oem companies are not offering their irons in single length. Bryson obviously can and it works for him.. I think that single length irons would be very beneficial for the majority of amateur golfers, I would definitely like to give it a try.

      The fitting process is no longer than it is for traditional irons. What you’re really saying is that getting fit is harder than buying right off the rack. Yes, it is. Which is why most clubs are sold that way and most golfers are playing with sticks that actually hold them back–no matter at what level they play.

    Safe bet with his type of swing that driver loft is much higher at impact…amazing how little rotation of the club face in his swing…I bet he has trained himself to the point his club face is square to the target from setup to impact…very square to square with high hands of Moe Norman setup and huge body turn away and back…..just looks like it hurts…

    99% of all golfers worldwide cannot play his 7º Cobra F9 driver. It’s uncontrollable at low clubhead speeds. Keep deluding gearhead geeks.. lol

      Same comment as previous article there, Al. Which driver can the 99% hit?

      Is it 7* or 9* ???
      The top photo says it’s set on 7* and in the second photo it’s set to 9* ???
      That’s if you actually believe that it is possible to change the loft of any adjustable driver !

        They’re both set to 7 degrees on the “MyFly” setting.

    Every review has been very positive on the new Cobra driver. I’d like to try one of those grips on my driver and hit a SIK putter…but no retailers sell them that I am aware of.

    I saw Bryson hit it around The Australian in our Open C’ship a few years back, and his ball striking was just as good as anyone’s – including Adam Scott & Rory & Jordan Spieth! No way I’m using single length clubs (I love my MP-68s), but if it works for him, that’s great. Good to see someone with different ideas sticking it to the establishment!

    Is this his first tournament with the F9 driver?
    This dudes going to become Cobras new poster child. No hate on Bryson i just wish Mr. Fowler would turn it up.

      Well said CCR Fan Man. I love Ricky and really hope he starts winning. I just cannot make myself like this guy above. Great game but what a terd of a person.

    WHO DAT? Dat boy De-sham-bo done did it agin!

    Let the Bryson hating begin. But know that all of us single-length players are loving it.

      Yeah but the difference is, you don’t have Jumbo Max grips on your clubs and you still can’t hit your driver straight so what’s the point of the single length for you, you idiot

      • Thomas A

        The point is it works for him and he likes to golf with them you idiot.

      • Rich Douglas

        Nov 5, 2018 at 1:15 pm

        I’m sorry for your unhappiness, CaoNiMa. I hope you get past it soon.

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.
