- Where the THP Tour Van Takes Us!
You can actually adjust that on the hosel settings and they offer 3 draw options there.When first seeing the pics I thought that front weight was a slider, this picture is helpful. This seems to be modeled more after the F8+ with the front back weights, surprised there is no more draw setting actually.
@Canadan can probably add more as well, but this is something they spoke to us a lot about. Base it on loft, rather than on two models that may have confused some golfers.Really fun looking driver and I’m a big fan of the yellow. I would need to get fit into this head because I have no idea what shaft would pair well with the head and my swing.
Very intriguing to see the launch and spin characteristics change based on the head choice (might be common but it is the first time I’ve seen it listed like this).
I hope we have another winner here.
I know, I was referring to the weight placement that has been prevalent on previous drivers. I don't think that the hosel setting is the same as extra weight in the head. It doesn't bother me I don't need it but just found it interesting.You can actually adjust that on the hosel settings and they offer 3 draw options there.
Gotcha. Yeah, the three weight movements that they had in the previous line has been removed for the launch high or low side of things.I know, I was referring to the weight placement that has been prevalent on previous drivers.

I like the move. In terms of sku, it’s the same amount for them. But consumers are kind of predisposed to purchasing by loft. I walk up to a tee with a new driver and offer my buddy a chance to swing it, first thing he’s asking is what loft it is. In stores it’s probably similar.I think that has a lot of potential. I hope the message catches on and doesn’t confuse people more.
