I've heard talk on here (and a mention by Tom himself) that a new Wishon driver might hit the streets early in '19.  Supposedly a stick aimed at better players.  Having much success with his 919THI, I'm interested in this new driver.

Anyone have some beans they'd like to spill?

Thanks!

A 919-like head at 410cc sounds appealing...

Yes, the final testing is being done on the new 519SHPR driver in anticipation of having it join the product line next spring. It is smaller, running at 412cc and will be available to begin with in RH in 9* and 11* lofts. WE will keep all models in the 919THI so we can evaluate how the new 519 does when it is released before we make any other decisions about whether we tool up other models in the 519 or what. It will be done with the same type of bendable hosel as the 919 so it will be able to be adjusted by us for clubmakers to any lie from +4 up to -4 flat and any face angle from 4 open to 4 closed. Hand select will as always be available for lofts between 8.5 and 12 within the two models. I hope it is received well as another option beyond the 919.

TOM

Very interesting! Curious Tom if you are making the head smaller for speed purposes or is that going to let the cat out of the bag too soon from a marketing perspective?

He means those are Tom’s words but he didnt post that specific message in the thread so Tom may not reply directly to your above question as he may not know it exists.

I dont think that Tom is too persuaded by improved aerodynamics, as Ive seen posts by him that argue that drivers are already pretty streamlined. Not that I would dare to speak for him...

412cc will help with that, though!  I love my 919- nothing has really performed better than it on a consistent basis. I wonder if he will be able to keep most of the MOI properties of the 919 in the new head.
