XV Ultimate Thriver is one of the most versatile metalwoods in the golf industry. Thriver is a shorter length driving club (43") which makes it easier to hit consistently in the center of the face and produces a much straighter flight.
Major brands sell drivers that are increasingly longer in length (45" - 46"). However, this requires a higher skill level from players to hit the ball on the center of the club face. The shorter club length takes care of this problem.
The superlite all-titanium crown re-positions weight inside the head for more solid and straighter drives. The Power Chamber Sole Slot is located directly behind the club face to enhance ball speed.

How Far Do Golfers Really Hit Drives
"I hit my drives 270 yards."
Hah! Maybe once, with the wind behind you, on a rock-hard fairway, when the ball bounced off a cart path and a squirrel advanced it an extra 10 yards. On no subject are golfers, especially male golfers, more deluded than on the distance they hit their drives.
Here are the brutal facts, accumulated by Dave Pelz over several years of monitoring thousands of players at amateur tournaments. He used the same ShotLink equipment used by the PGA Tour to determine that, in 2018, the world’s best players averaged 291 yards off the tee.
Male amateurs who score 100 + have average drives of 166 yards
Male amateurs who score 92 - 99 average 183 yards
Male amateurs who score 82 - 88 average 214 yards
Male amateurs who score low 70's average 235 yards.
As for actual yardage hit by golfers, you need to know that MOST golf courses do NOT measure the yardages correctly. Scorecard yardages are often 60 - 80 yards longer than what the hole really is.
Hands Shoulder Height or Lower
Hands Higher Than Shoulders
Wrist Cock Release Point on Downswing
1. Early Release means the downswing to the ball is started with the hands. Generally done by beginners or higher scoring players who score 90 +.
2. Midway Release means the downswing to the ball is started with some body movement before the hands start to uncock. Generally done by Intermediate Players who score 82 - 89.
3. Late Release means the downswing to the ball is started by weight shift in the legs, followed by the trunk of the body and finally the hands uncocking very near impact with the ball. Always done by advanced players who score 70 - 79.
