The new Launch Pad woods, hybrids and irons for men and women from Wilson Golf are targeted for play by recreational players looking for added distance and straighter shots.
Wilson has reiterated their commitment to recreational players particularly those with swings that can use some help with distance and straightness by introducing a reworked version of 2020’s Launch Pad family of woods, hybrids and irons.
The irons have a wide sole, so they don’t have as much a tendency for the chunks since they will not dig into the ground as readily and the center of gravity has been lowered compared to the previous version to give a higher trajectory. The lightweight driver has a lots of draw bias weighting and a closed face to help those of us who are slicers hit the ball straighter.
Hybrids come in a 4-hybrid or 5-hybrid loft with an FY club that falls between the usual hybrid and a fairway wood.
In making the announcement of the new line Wilson Golf’s president Tim Clarke said, “Wilson Golf prides itself on our ability to provide the right products for every level of player. From Staff Model to D9 and now the newest Launch Pad range, our products are designed with best-in-class technology to help bring out the best in every individual’s game.”
