What makes most golfers miss a fairway off of the tee? There are two reasons; one is the length is too long and the other it is too lightweight. Drivers today are all increasingly longer in length and lighter weight than they were a few years ago.
Why? Because the marketing departments of large golf club manufacturers try to entice players to want to hit longer drives just like the touring professionals that play with their equipment. Only problem is that 99.9% of all golfers lack the ability to hit the ball on the center of the clubface when it is square to the target. The manufacturer wants players to think that their golf skill is the same as a touring professional. And that my friends, is how the large golf companies make money!
However, those players who realize the absurdity of this practice come to us for help...and we show them the XS Thriver.
The XS Thriver is a full 10 grams heavier than a normal driver to create a driver that is 43" rather than 45". The addition of the weight produces even greater forgiveness making this the ultimate in control off the tee. Plus having more weight in the head will transfer more momentum to the ball and establish a better swing tempo.
XS Thriver has a slightly higher launch angle for accuracy and longer distance.
• Thin, reactive face for high COR right up to the legal limit for more distance
• Shorter, more control length for solidness of contact
• Heavier weight head maximizes Moment-of-Inertia and increases momentum into the ball
