This hit the conforming list this morning as a prototype. Could be a new lineup called Wilson Labs. Could be a new Staff Model.

What are your thoughts?

I’m thinking it’s going to be aimed at better players and with adjustability. No way they make a fixed 7.5 degree driver for the masses.

It's a little plain looking, but it is a prototype. 7.5* is really interesting! I guess that's why the weight is towards the back, to keep the spin up some.

Kinda boring without much there. looks like weight and adjust-ability will be the key ... probably a pro model.

I don't know if seeing a color pic changes my mind...that's it's ugly. I won't lie, ugly doesn't play.

Its not singing to me yet. But then again, protoype conforming list pictures aren't always known for their marketing value. Loft is interesting. As is the weight location.

I can't remember the last time I saw a 7.5* driver. My other impression is that it seems small, less that 460CC.

I honestly thought it was a club head from the 90's.

Maybe proto for Woodland? What loft does he play? Those 4 stars around the toe seem like something he'd have on a driver.

That was my thought too, didn't look to be very forgiving based on the shape, but maybe that's because I'm used to seeing more design and tech rather than simplicity

Looks very plain and boring. Better players could love it

hard to tell at this point. Maybe it is all under the hood... No judgement good or bad.. Yet.

W labs is the only thing intriguing about that picture.

Looks like an attempt to get at least one of their staffers to actually have a Wilson club under their Wilson headcover.

I agree that a 7.5 degree loft is not untended for the masses but that looks like an adjustable hosel to me.

It would have to loft up a ton for me to get it airborne. It might need turn signals
It looks like the WLab program has been going on in some of their other sports categories. In basketballs for instance they say the innovation is inside the ball.
