As I went through my own posts I have not found any golf club model that was dedicated to high handicap golfers like the new Wilson Golf Launch Pad family of clubs.
The issue of forgiveness is a recurring topic but without precise percentages.
If you consider yourself as a game-improvement player like me then check out the details about the new Wilson Golf Launch Pad family of clubs below.
Wilson Golf Launch Pad – irons
OK. Let’s start with the irons. We should pay attention to the Launch Pad Sole.
It is designed to eliminate the “chunk/fat” shot, while simultaneously improving launch.
The short irons feature traditional game-improvement sole widths while longer irons feature wider, more forgiving soles, for more consistent ball-striking and greater distance.
This progression in the sole width allows players to put the long irons back in their bags.
The Wilson Golf The Launch Pad Irons feature a hollow-body construction, supporting an extremely thin face for explosive ball speed and increased distance.
I am not so sure that the smooth bounce angle will be enough to compensate for the bad swing technique caused mistake. I would check also:
- ball position,
- weight distribution,
Jon Pergande, Manager of Golf Club Innovation said
“Keeping the everyday player in mind, our test results show the Launch Pad sole reduces fat shots by 73%, enabling players to attack the course with more confidence.”
The Wilson Golf Launch Pad Irons will be offered with a KBS Tour 80 steel shaft or UST-Mamiya Recoil 460 graphite shaft, with both options featuring the traditional Wilson Staff 2 Crossline Mid grip.
The steel shaft options will be sold at $699.99 while the graphite set will start at $799.99.
Wilson Golf Launch Pad – driver
The Wilson Staff Launch Pad Driver (also the fairway woods) have been designed for players looking to put an end to one of the most frustrating problems off the tee: the slice.
Featuring a moderate hosel offset, 13 grams of weight in the heel side of the club and an upright lie angle, Wilson has made finding fairways easier than ever.
With an overall clubhead weight of just 272 grams, the Wilson Golf Launch Pad driver is one of the lightest drivers on the market, which translates into an effortless increase in clubhead speed.
Paired with the new Variable Face Technology the Wilson Golf Launch Pad driver head delivers higher ball speeds and high launch angles, regardless of the location of contact on the clubface.
The Wilson Golf Launch Pad Driver is available in both men’s and women’s options at an MSRP of $299.99.
It comes stock with the new UST-Mamiya Helium Series, and the Wilson Staff MicroLite Lamkin grip, which maintains the traditional feel in a super lightweight construction.
