     Nike’s Vapor Speed and Vapor Flex fairway woods are designed to fly longer and straighter , The Vapor Speed in particular was made 25 percent larger, making it a great choice for golfers who prefer a larger face profile in their fairway woods.  Engineers were also able to drive the center of gravity (CG) lower in the Vapor Speed fairway woods by adding slope to their crowns.

    Titleist’s 915 fairway woods have the Active Recoil Channel to lower spin and add ball speed on all shots. Titleist also gave the clubs new, hotter faces ,465 stainless steel in the fairway woods.

     TAYLORMADE R15


    The Taylormade R15 Fairway‎ woods  have a simple slide weighting channel which is 25 grams, so depending on how you ball flies you can adjust the weight to straighten up your fairway shots.

    The new Front Track system performs like a Speed Pocket, therefore reducing spin while increasing the size of the sweet spot, and the four-degree loft sleeve allows for more loft adjustability and the opportunity to dial in your ideal launch conditions.

    TAYLORMADE AEROBURNER

     The TaylorMade AeroBurner Fairway Wood features a new aerodynamic shape that includes a shallow face, raised center crown, and new hosel fin designed to reduce drag for faster swing speeds.

    TaylorMade Aeroburner Mini Driver


    It features all the same design and technology as the other AeroBurner woods, but in a 253cc head. This makes it around 90cc bigger than the AeroBurner fairway and 207cc smaller than the AeroBurner driver.  The Mini Driver has a 43.5 inch Matrix shaft that is 2.25 inches shorter than the AeroBurner driver

    There are three lofts of 12°, 14° and 16° and the crown uses the same raised section and rough surface to assist with reducing drag as it goes through the air.
    In addition, the smaller head can move through the air a touch faster than a 460cc driver, so that will help increase club head and ball speed too.




    The Callaway Mini 1.5


    The Callaway Mini 1.5 features a clubhead that’s 35% larger than Callaway’s XR fairway wood, the Bertha Mini 1.5 has a high MOI for more forgiveness than a standard fairway wood and a cambered sole that provides versatility for anyone choosing to play shots off the fairway.
    Callaway Mini 1.5

    A 44-inch Kuro Kage Silver Tini shaft that’s 1 to 2 inches shorter than a standard driver shaft makes it a little easier to swing, particularly for players who typically struggle with a full-length driver.
    The 235cc clubhead can be adjusted using Callaway’s OptiFit Hosel to four different loft options, each with a draw or neutral configuration.

    The Callaway Mini 1.5 also features  a forged hyper speed face cup for low spin and distance and a forged composite crown. The Bertha Mini 1.5 is available in 12° and 14° models.

    The Callaway XR and XR Pro

    Speed is everything and it's the driving force behind the new XR driver with the new "Speed Step" crown and aerodynamic head reduce drag and increase clubhead speed.


    The new "R-MOTO" face technology is 10% lighter for added forgiveness and a lower center of gravity.

    XR Loft options: 9, 10.5, 12 and 13.5 degrees

    Adjustability: The hosel allows for eight different loft and lie combinations - the loft can be increased one or two degrees or reduced by one degree

    Length: 
    46" Stock shaft: True Temper Project X LZ 

    The Callaway Men's XR Pro Driver gives you low spin and outrageous speed in a players shape. Led by high speed, more efficient energy transfer, forgiveness and more speed from an enhanced aero shape available in 9 and 10.5 degree loft.


    Ping G30 Driver


    The Ping G30 Driver features an emphasis on speed without sacrificing performance, setting this driver apart from all others.


    To generate faster clubhead speed and ball velocity for longer drives, turbulators were engineered onto the crown of the 460cc head. Proven in wind-tunnel testing to reduce aerodynamic drag and create efficient airflow, the added speed from Turbulator Technology provides measurable distance gains for all skill levels. 

    At address, they create a captured appearance with the ball and assist with alignment and inspiration.
    The G30's center of gravity (CG) position is the lowest and farthest back of any Ping model, ensuring optimal launch conditions and an even higher moment of inertia (MOI) in both axes for extreme forgiveness and maximum energy transfer. 

    A new high-strength, lightweight T9S titanium face is thinner and hotter to optimize face deflection for faster ball speeds and longer drives. Another source of power is the TFC 419D high-balance-point shaft. The CG is closer to the grip end, allowing for a heavier head, which increases the MOI and contributes to the extremely low CG. The result is more energy, momentum and inertia for greater distance with accuracy.

    The adjustable hosel has the same mass and outer diameter as Ping's fixed hosels, providing the benefits of adjustability with no sacrifice in performance. Trajectory Tuning+ Technology offers five settings, allowing you to optimize your ball flight by increasing or reducing loft by 6/10ths of a degree or one full degree, to maximize distance and control. Settings are standard, +0.6°, +1°, -0.6°, and -1°.
    Additional features:
    • Head size: 460cc
    • Materials: Ti 8-1-1 body, T9S titanium face
    • Length: 45.75"
    • Loft adjustability: ±1°
    • Sole CTP - greater range of weights accommodates wide range of after-market shafts for optimizing swingweight
    • TFC 419D Shaft - high balance point allows for heavier head (approximately 5 grams), which increases MOI for more distance and accuracy





     VAPOR FLEX DRIVER

     
    The Nike Flex  driver has the new FlexFlight technology embedded in a carbon enhanced RZN Cavity adjusts CG from low and forward to low and back for fine-tuned launch condition, with the covert cavity back design redistributes weight towards the heel and toe to maximize forgiveness.

     Each driver is adjustable in half degree increments from 8.5 degrees to 12.5 degrees.

     FlexLoft 2 technology offers 15 different launch options


    TAYLORMADE R15


     The TaylorMade R15 Driver is available in two sizes: 460cc and 430cc and there is  two 12.5-gram weights on the R15’s Front Track system.

     The 460 driver is available in black or white clubhead finishes, while the 430 (TaylorMade’s lowest spinning driver) is white only. The length of the R15 drivers is 45.5 inches.

     TaylorMade teamed with Fujikura to design specific shafts for the R15. The 460 has Fujikura’s new Speeder 57 Evolution shaft, while the 430 has the new Speeder 67 Evolution shaft.

    Lofts for the 460 are 9.5, 10.5, 12 and 14 degrees. The 430 lofts are 9.5, 10.5 and 12. Adjustable hosels in both allow golfers to make significant changes in loft/face angle, which are related, as well as lie.

    Jason Day, the winner of the 2015 PGA Championship played with the Taylormade R15 (10.5 degree) with the Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Silver TiNi 80X shaft.


    TAYLORMADE AEROBURNER

     The new TaylorMade AeroBurner Driver is a speed merchant, pure and simple. It has a larger and improved Speed Pocket.. The Speed Pocket allows the face to flex more at impact, which TaylorMade says helps maintain ball speed on offcenter strikes.


    Lofts for the AeroBurner driver are 9.5, 10.5, 12 and HL (High Loft). AeroBurner fairway woods and hybrids round out the family. The length of the AeroBurner driver is 45.75 inches.

    TITLEIST 915 D2

     The latest  Titliest technology has an Active Recoil Channel technology to produce lower spin and higher speed for more distance but without affecting the forgiveness of the club, Titliest have been working with this concept for the last 4 years n has come out with two great performing drivers for 2015..

    The concept behind the Active Recoil Channel is a long, wide and deep sole channel that actively flexes at impact and recoils to launch the ball off the face with higher speed and lower spin.

    The 915D2 driver is a 460cc full-pear shaped head designed for maximum forgiveness and a slight draw bias.

     Titleist 915D2 is available in 7.5º, 8.5º, 9.5º, 10.5º and 12º lofts.

    ADAMS BLUE

    The Adams Blue Easy Launch System is built on three technical approaches:
    Velocity Slot Technology: Common in other Adams clubs, VST is a visible slot in the soles of clubs, just back from the clubface. The slot allows the clubface to flex more at impact. This produces better ball speeds across the face.

    Low and back CG position: Low-and-forward is a trend in golf equipment for better golfers, but low-and-back remains the go-to center-of-gravity position in clubs aimed and mid- and higher handicappers.

    SlimTech shafts: New in the Blue series are the Adams SlimTech shafts. These shafts have narrower tips, which leads to a lower kickpoint, which, again, helps a golfer get a higher launch.

    The Adams Blue Driver comes in lofts of 9.5, 10.5 and 12 degrees
