917 FAIR­WAY WOODS

KEY TECH AIMED AT New face and sole chan­nel in­crease dis­tance on off-cen­tre hits Huge range of ad­justa­bil­ity caters for ev­ery abil­ity and pref­er­ence HOW MUCH TBC

Golf Monthly - - Gm Promotion -

Join­ing the head­line act of the 917 driv­ers are two new 917 fair­way woods, which Titleist says of­fer more dis­tance and for­give­ness thanks to its most pre­cise cus­tomi­sa­tion ever.

Both the 917F2 and 917F3 fea­ture a sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion Ac­tive Re­coil Chan­nel and the new SureFit CG sole ad­justa­bil­ity found in the driv­ers.

The for­mer helps the faces flex and re­coil at im­pact more ef­fi­ciently to launch the ball faster and there­fore fur­ther. The new sole-chan­nel de­sign also now has an elas­tomer in­sert with a hol­low core for more con­sis­tent de­flec­tion across the face.

The SureFit CG ad­justa­bil­ity then pro­vides pre­cise cus­tomi­sa­tion through an in­ter­change­able weight sys­tem that op­ti­mises spin and launch con­di­tions, as ex­plained in more de­tail to the right.

As with the driv­ers, this in­ter­change­able weight is housed in a stream­lined de­sign that saves weight, which can then be used to in­crease the club’s over­all for­give­ness.

A Vari­able Thick­ness Face In­sert that is thin­ner around the perime­ter also de­liv­ers for­give­ness as it in­creases ball speeds on heel and toe strikes for bet­ter off-cen­tre re­sults.

Like the driv­ers, a 16-set­ting SureFit hosel al­lows you to ad­just the loft and lie in­de­pen­dently to op­ti­mise your flight, while two head choices again help you nar­row ev­ery­thing down to your ex­act needs.

The 917F2 of­fers more spin and a higher launch for a higher tra­jec­tory and more for­give­ness; the 917F3 pro­vides extra con­trol, less spin and comes in a more com­pact pro­file.

Both clubs (price TBC) are avail­able from Oc­to­ber 21, with the F2 com­ing in 13.5˚, 15˚, 16.5˚, 18˚ and 21˚ lofts, and the F3 in 13.5˚ and 15˚ lofts.

Both fair­ways will also come with four premium stock shaft op­tions – the Aldila Rogue M*AX, Fu­jikura Speeder Pro TS, Mit­subishi Dia­mana Lim­ited S+ Blue and Mit­subishi Dia­mana Lim­ited M+ Red, along with other cus­tom op­tions.
