lightest-ever driver delivers more distance
golf brand Wilson Staff is introducing its lightest-ever driver
as part of an extensive 2012 golf range to help golfers of all abilities
improve their game.
Staff DXi Superlight
weighs just 269 grams – 50g less than most traditional drivers on the
market – and is
designed to deliver greater clubhead speed and distance.
Extensive testing has proved that the DXi Superlight driver
has the lightest measured MOI on the market – the dynamic measurement of
effort needed to swing a club. The result is an effortless and
controlled swing that creates a more dynamic, faster clubhead speed to
deliver explosive power on impact with the ball.
The new DXi Superlight clubhead has selectively thinned,
non-structural areas of the crown and sole that reduces the overall
weight of the club by six grams. Further weight reductions are possible
thanks to a 48g Matrix Ozik superlight shaft and a 28g WinnLite Firm
The DXi Superlight driver also features a modified 5-Zone
Cup-Face design that has expanded the sweet spot from previous drivers.
The variable face thickness fine tunes and maximises the sweet spot into
the heel and toe areas, thus increasing the high CT area of the club for
DXi Superlight is the lightest driver we’ve ever produced,” said
Jon Pergande, Wilson Golf’s Global Manager of R&D. “Our research has
shown that golfers can improve their game with the DXi Superlight
driver because its lightweight head, shaft and grip, along with expanded
sweet spot, provide greater distance and optimal accuracy.”
The Wilson Staff DXi Superlight is available in 9°, 10.5°
(available in LH) and HL 12° lofts for men, while an HL 14° version is
on offer for women golfers.
The driver will be available from February 2012 at a RRP of £199.99.
