Photos of the Wilson Staff Triton, winner of the Driver vs. Driver TV show

Published

on

Enjoy our exclusive photos of the Triton, the driver design that was selected as the winner of the Golf Channel’s television show Driver vs. Driver presented by Wilson. The Triton was designed by Eric Sillies of Cincinnati, and will be sold at more than 1000 retailers for $449.99 beginning November 25.

5c2d384c63c3cb612e946afa1c71ac73The Triton uses what Wilson calls “1:1” Visible Swing Active technology, an alignment aid positioned on the top of the club head to help golfers aim and strike shots on the sweet spot more consistently. The driver also comes with two interchangeable sole plates, one made of titanium that weighs 22 grams and another made of carbon fiber that weighs 9 grams. Changing the sole plate allows golfers to make the club head heavier or lighter, depending on their needs.

Three adjustable weights secure the sole plates to the driver head, and they also come in three different weights (2, 6 and 12 grams) to allow golfers to further customize head weight and trajectory bias. Five weights in all are included with the Triton (two 2-gram weights, two 6-gram weights and a 12-gram weight).

The Triton also features an adjustable hosel, which gives golfers the flexibility to adjust the club to one of six settings that change the loft (+/- 1 degree) and allow golfers to choose either a standard or upright (draw) lie angle. Stock lofts are 9, 10.5 and 12 degrees.

Wilson_Driver_Vs_Driver_Winner_TritonThe Triton comes stock with two different shafts: Aldila’s Rogue Silver 125 MSI (S and X flexes) and Rogue Black 95 MSI (Senior and R flexes). Several other shafts are available at no upcharge. Pre-order the Triton from Wilson Staff. 

In the season finale of Driver vs. Driver, Sillies’ design was chosen over that of Gavin Wallin (Eagle Mountain, Utah), a veteran golf equipment designer whose driver was named “Pivot.” Sillies earned a cash prize of $500,000 for winning the 16-month competition, which was broadcast on Golf Channel over the last seven weeks. Watch the episodes.

Sillies, 26, is a product designer by trade. He’s a graduate of the University of Cincinnati in the College of DAAP (Design, Architecture, Art and Planning), and had previous experience designing golf clubs as an intern for Dicks Sporting Goods, where he helped design the company’s 2012 Nickent golf club line.

    Dudes, it’s actually a legit driver. I tested it. Carbon plate with the heavier weight at the back like it comes stock like that. And it hits surprisingly great. But the Titanium plate is so loud! You switch it but man, that metal plate is loud. The Carbon one sound better and is more fun to hit like that. With the 125 MSi Rogue Silver X, it’s a really good set up. The price might throw people off because it’s a Wilson, but hey, this is how Wilson wants to chip away at the leaders. It’s legit better than the 917, which everybody knows just doesn’t fly. The Triton flies as good as M2, if not better, because the M2 is too light in the consumer version. So if you like to have a slightly more head feel, try this thing. You’d be surprised.

    Wilson should have re-signed John Daly as he was the best Driver sales man they ever had… seems they dropped him sometime after the British Open win..Would have been a great show if Daly would have smashed up a bunch of the prototypes and they designed one he could find the fairway well over 300 yards. With all the Daly fans still, Wilson would have sold enough drivers to pay him…

    Tried the Triton- noise was loud and somewhat pingy, loved the shaft selection, Hate the Skunk stripe it’s distracting at set up. I don’t understand the indention on top even without the stripe. The plate idea is for what ? something to lose or break ! I WANT THE PIVOT !! ITS BEST by just watching your show all thought the Pivot was best and it should be the winner. I don’t understand their thinking!

    • Ger

      Nov 24, 2016 at 1:19 pm

      Clearly, you weren’t paying attention. At slower swing speeds, the Triton does better. You have to be a good player for the Triton, which is what Wilson didn’t want, to segment a driver only for the better player market, they wanted one to cover all the consumers.
      The Triton works great. It does its job. I hit it too, with both plates in the stock set up. The Titanium plate is louder than the Carbon plate.

      • Ger

        Nov 25, 2016 at 2:18 am

        Sorry, I mean to say that the Pivot is for a better player.

      Pivot mechanism looks like garbage. But honestly, neither driver can go toe to toe, based on performance, with TM or Cally’s new drivers.

    The real winner here is Wilson’s marketing dept. Driver will be so so. If the Rogue really is 125 MSI, that’s where all the money is going on the MSRP.

    This is what I can’t stand about GolfWRX, full of a bunch of whiners and naysayers with no real input other than opinions and speculation based on… h***, I’m not even sure what it’s based on other than just plain old annoying negativity.
    Go play your Calloway or Taylormade driver and help kill off the rest of the American companies so the Japanese companies can come in and tell you what you’re going to play. Srixon and Mizuno are killing American companies with superior products and limited distribution, kinda like Honda and Toyota did to our auto and truck industry. People like you do this with your immediate and unmerited discounting of a product based on the very perception you helped create. Wilson has been around a long time and is the reason golf is so mainstream in the US in the first place, and then they made some really bad business decisions and are trying to make a come back with real golf products… but “real golfers” whatever that is, just won’t allow it. It’s no wonder drivers are approaching the price of an entire set just 10 years ago. You can’t blame the companies for their pricing or accelerated release cycles, they’re just trying to stay afloat and turn a profit in spite of a clientele hell-bent on putting them out of business.
    Pretty soon we’ll be down to the “big 3” and then one of them will get bought out by a foreign company and we’ll only have ourselves to blame. Oh wait, that’s already happened, since every “American” golf company is now owned by some conglomerate outside of the USA. Good job golf community, WRXers specifically included, for ruining the American golf industry. Pretty soon we’ll see Gilbert as the official ball of the NFL if this crowd has anything to do with it.

      Guess you missed the episode where your “American” golf company went off to China to see how everything is actually made.

      Want to compete? It’s not American protectionism, it’s making something better than the other guy at a better price. Wilson didn’t even pick the driver with the best testing numbers or player feedback. Maybe that’s one of those really bad business decisions you were speaking of.

      The cost drivers (no pun intended) of a golf club are not the raw materials or R&D.
      It’s the damn marketing & Advertising expenditures along with the OUTRAGEOUS fees that are paid to the pros who put their sticks in the bag and wear a logo hat !!!!!! Go look at the line item expenses for Taylor Made as an example. Something like 25% for ENDORSEMENTS !!!!!!
      They have created a monster just so they can say “more pros play TM than all other drivers combined” WHY DO YOU THINK ADIDIS IS TRYING TO GET RID OF THEM !!!!!!! Money loser.
      As for the Aldila Rogue Silver that you pay $280 for the raw shaft, the big boys get it for less than $90 when they order in lots of 5000+

      PS There are a number of small Asian/Japanese golf companies that make products far, far superior to US brands. Try to find a golf store that specializes in Asian clubs and hit a few drivers with the proper shafts. If you can afford one, you will never look back !!!!

    with the sole plate removed it seems the structure of the driver goes to the back weight to me that looks like a pivot point. If someone were to bring back the square head and put two weights in the corners rather than the center and provide 4 structure points two that come from the center of the club face towards the weights in the corners and two from the perimeter of the face back to the weights I feel that it would have a higher MOI. I would be curious to try the driver though.

  12. KK

    Nov 23, 2016 at 8:38 pm

    If it sounds terrible, at least it’s also the world’s easiest driver to cotton ball. But I don’t see enough tech to outgun the new drivers from TM or the supposed game changer from Callaway.

  13. Sam

    Nov 23, 2016 at 7:49 pm

    New tech doesnt always equate to better performance.Give me no moving weights and a fixed hosel and I ll bang it straight past all this gimmick .

  14. Grizz01

    Nov 23, 2016 at 7:07 pm

    The whole thing has been a gimmicky marketing ploy. I doubt there is much ‘innovation’ to this driver.

  15. Shortside

    Nov 23, 2016 at 4:54 pm

    Say what you will about that racing stripe but my guess is that will help the average golfer immensely. An afternoon on any course speaks to that. Terrific visual aide not trying to hide what it’s there for. It took me a little while to get used to the shape of my FT-IZ. Now traditional looks odd to me. Love the sole plate idea. I’ll definitely hit this one and tinker with it a bit.

  16. Tim

    Nov 23, 2016 at 3:21 pm

    I hit it yesterday and it performed poorly. I hit 20-25 balls and was only able to hit 1 over 265. I then took one swing with the Callaway Fusion and it went 287 with 266 carry. Not to mention the sound of it…

  17. mhendon

    Nov 23, 2016 at 2:51 pm

    Lets face it there are 4 big dogs in the golf equipment business and if a club doesn’t bare their name the chances of its success are slim. With that said the best chance of gaining traction in the driver category is with a driver the pros want to play. In my opinion this ain’t it, why simply the looks. Most top level golfers prefer a pair shape with a solid feel. Not that tin can softball bat thing someone else who’s hit it on here described. Even then it’s a major up hill battle to get market share. Nike is a fine example. The VrPro limited was a great driver I gamed it for four years but Nike just couldn’t gain in traction and now they are no more.

  18. N. D. Boondocks

    Nov 23, 2016 at 2:43 pm

    I really like Wilson irons, balls, and yes, putters. The woods… not so much. From the bottom and sides, this driver looks ok. From the top. Yah, that ain’t pretty. That alone will turn a lot of people off from even trying what might be a good driver.

    What surprised me though, at this proce point, with all the weight-y gizmo stuff going on in it, that they didn’t bother to put on an adjusting grip weight.

    That, or go all ‘project X’, and put on a grip with an integrated swing analyzer.

  19. moses

    Nov 23, 2016 at 2:30 pm

    I’ll get this club for $99-$149 a year from now. IMO the head won’t be much different from other OEM’s performance but that shaft. Ohhhh I’ve been wanting to try the MSI 125 Rogues.

    Too bad we couldn’t have hit the driver from the Michigan State guys. Actual advancements in technology based on physics and engineering, not marketing.

  21. Chris

    Nov 23, 2016 at 12:57 pm

    Just from a looks perspective:
    1) Why is the alignment aid on the top recessed?
    2) Why is the sole plate visible from address?

    • Chris

      Nov 23, 2016 at 1:06 pm

      On another note, I assume Wilson owns any intellectual property that was presented by those involved in the show. If so, they could incorporate other ideas such as the pivot in the future.

    • new stuff!!

      Nov 23, 2016 at 2:12 pm

      My guesses
      1. Better aerodynamics? to reduce drag – smooth is not always good, e.x. Ping turbulators and Callaway Speedstep
      2. Better aerodynamics? e.x. Ping vortec

    Grooveless face….hmmm. Remember Cubic Balance did this about 20 years ago.

    • Justin

      Nov 23, 2016 at 4:32 pm

      All drivers are, in essence, grooveless. The ones that do have them are for show, because they’re not deep enough to do anything useful.

      That’s OK, though, because you don’t need grooves on a driver. Every shot on a tee box is a perfect lie, so long as you use a tee.

      The groove’s only job is to channel away dirt, grass, etc., from the club face, to promote cleaner contact. Spin comes from friction, swing speed, and loft- not the grooves. Any grass in-between the face and ball negates that friction.

      That’s where “flyer lies” come from; too much grass and stuff that the grooves can’t channel away, so the spin is reduced and the ball flies farther than you intended. It’s also why it’s illegal to apply vasoline, sunscreen, or some other foreign substance on your club’s faces in a competition setting.

      I hit it yesterday with both sole plates. It sounds like the old Cobra/Nike Square. From the top, it looks like the Wilson Spine driver.

      I can’t figure out why Wilson would ignore sound and appearance.

      I can usually find any reason to like new equipment, this driver was very disappointing

    Nov 23, 2016 at 11:34 am

    I don’t think the price is out of line, and I don’t believe that the driver itself is without technology. Don’t forget, Ping did almost this same thing a couple of years ago with the I25, and people LOVED that driver.

    There’s a good chance that people will like this one too. I’ll hit it, and if it seems to help me make better contact, then yeah, I’ll play it. I think the pros will do the same. I wouldn’t be surprised to see some of the pros for Wilson stick this in their bags. Patty, Barnes, Streelman, all could game it.

  28. Desmond

    The crown could be a mind-eye thing to increase your probability of center contact. Would not blow off its function until one hits it.

  29. Golfbuddy

    Nov 23, 2016 at 9:24 am

    It would be interesting to hit both finalist clubs. It seems the Pivot got more favourable comments from the test hitters than the Triton. At any rate, both clubs resulted in huge drives (most 300 yds or greater, launch monitor) from the celebrity hitters. Maybe. Maybe not.

    • Sam

      Nov 23, 2016 at 11:28 am

      That’s what I thought also, but I guess I was wrong. During the celebrity testing, they liked the way it looked and sounded better and most of them hit it further.

      They commented on the “classic” look of the Pivot and also the sound (from what I heard while watching the show) was so much better then the high pitch “ting” from the Triton. The Triton sounds almost like the old Nike SQ drivers.

      This is not a price point that a lot of people will be willing to pay for this driver.

    • Editing

      Nov 23, 2016 at 12:17 pm

      That’s editing in the entertainment industry, duh. They edited it that way to fool you into thinking that the other ones might be a bit better. But what about all the other shots that they left on the cutting room floor? Some of the comments from the celebrities were edited too, to make it seem like more of them actually preferred the Pivot.
      I don’t think they showed all the other ones that actually hit the Triton better, and those others who actually loved the alignment aid. And I can guarantee you that there were more bad players who got better results from the forgiveness of the Triton than the Pivot, which they just didn’t want to show on the TV show. Which is what Wilson wanted, a driver they can sell to more normal people than just good players who can hit it more squarely.

  30. Hooker T. Washington

    Nov 23, 2016 at 9:12 am

    I may have to buy one of these just to pull that 125 MSI…that has to be a typo, right?

  31. Chris C.

    Nov 23, 2016 at 8:56 am

    The Pivot looked interesting and it’s tech suggested a stealth PXG. The Trident screams Walmart. On looks alone, the Trident is a step backwards from Wilson,a efforts of the last several years to be considered as anything but starter sets for your 6 year old. I sincerely hope that this driver does not negate what Wilson has achieved with their irons. As an aside, since both finalists had sole plates, the Triton would be vastly improved if it came with a crown plate to cover that ridiculous racing stripe.

    One year from today, I want to see a report:
    1) Number of players on any pro tour in the world using this driver.
    2) Number of retail sales. Actual purchase by user, not how many units they made Dick’s, Golf Galaxy and Walmart take.

  34. Tom Duckworth

    Nov 23, 2016 at 6:26 am

    Well we’ll just have to wait for testing and reviews to see how it stacks up to other drivers.
    I don’t really care for the bold line up aid it could have been a darker gray and still worked.
    I don’t like a distraction when trying to focus on the ball.
    I’m pulling for Wilson I like their irons.

    Not that keen on the crown. A faint shadow appearance might have worked better than what appears to be a rectangular indentation. It seems too big and unsightly.
    I recall Ping had some racing stripe appearance on an I-series driver a couple years ago, but it didn’t go over well. And this one makes that particular Ping look absolutely classy.
    Also read a tweet by ProjectXGolf about having their Hazardous Black and Harzardous Red shafts be available shaft alternatives at no upcharge. I recall that when they first advertised them, they said the “black” was for the better player, the “red” was more for the player who needs help getting the ball into the air, and the “yellow” would fit the biggest majority of players. Yet the “yellow” wasn’t listed as being an available alternative at no upgrade charge in their tweet. Seems like a mistake, considering the “yellow” would suit the majority of golfers the best. I’m not knocking the “black” or the “red”. Just saying they should include the “yellow” as well.

    You guys are already making decisions without ever even seeing the thing in person, let alone actually hitting it. Typical WRX fashion I guess. You were gonna buy the Pivot without even hitting it, but since it didn’t win, now you’re declaring that you’re not going to even try to the Triton? Then you mention Cobra with its Skittles bag of colors in the same breath. Say all that out loud to yourself and see how silly you sound. I hope its the best driver to ever come around and you NEVER get to experience it because of your snobbish, preconceived notion about the appearance.

    Was ready to buy a Pivot. A real gamer looking club. Wilson went the same usual direction they always go and that hasn’t been working for them. Pretty disappointed.

    As for the triton. It has all technologies from 5 or 6 years ago. 3 weight ports. Adjustable hosel still looks bulky to me. And the sole plate change only affects “feel” and weight? And the crown looks straight outta the late 90s early 2000s.

  42. KK

    Nov 23, 2016 at 12:00 am

    Can’t say I’ve seen the show but the Pivot sole looks like hot garbage when “pivoted.” The Triton sole is unique and relatively clean. The alignment aid is polarizing but seems very effective, almost like a putter alignment aid.

  43. James

    Nov 22, 2016 at 11:39 pm

    I should have shown my early announcement when we got them in this morning. Hit it with both sole plates. Not sure that carbon will hold up, and sounds like an old Sumo. Spin numbers were good. Would recommend the steel sole plate instead.

      thats exactly what I thought, thought it must be a typo until I saw the pic of the 125. Not sure how they got ahold of enough of those for a mass production driver. Can’t be the real 125 tour version that was $899 originally, something seems fishy here

      • Nolan Person

        Nov 23, 2016 at 10:26 am

        I looked on the Wilson website and it shows the 125 on there as well, but there is an upcharge for the 110 silver. Can’t be the Limited edition, made in the USA, Tour version.

2021 GolfWRX Holiday Gift Guide: Golf gifts for the Clothes Horse

Published

on

It’s that time of year again, GolfWRX members, the moment we start filling our wish lists with the golf gear we want this holiday season.

The GolfWRX Holiday Gift Guide was created to ensure that our readers give (and hopefully receive) the very best golf gifts on the planet. These gift ideas will suit any budget, and each item was hand-picked by our staff.

In an effort to provide more value and tailored recommendations, we’re presenting our guide as a series this year, targeting “the purist,” “the gearhead,” “the value seeker,” “the golfer looking to improve,” “the clothes horse,” and “the big spender.”

You know the golfer looking to get better by his/her closet full of every infomercial training aid and a pursuit of forgiveness that would put the most penitent sinner to shame.

Here are our best recommendations for “the clothes horse” in your life.

Jordan ADG 3 – $140

Taking the iconic style of the Jordan 4 and incorporating that with the performance levels of a golf shoe, Nike has created the Jordan ADG 3. A sneakerhead’s dream for golfers, the shoe comes in three different color schemes and features Zoom Air as well as the classic Jordan wing-shaped upper eyelets that are designed to cushion and support your feet on and off the course.

Hoodies are the in-thing at the moment on the golf course, and considering Spring/Summer isn’t exactly just around the corner, now is the time to join the movement! The Cold.Rdy hoodie from Adidas features a built-in stretch for a full range of motion on the course, as well as ribbed details to give an extra-comfortable feel. Keep warm in cool conditions with Cold.Rdy by utilizing the drawcord on the hood for total protection on the course.
