Two new technologically advanced Titleist 915 driver models have been unveiled – the 915 D2 and 915 D3 – following on from the 913 launch two years ago.
The D2 comes with a 460cc head and the D3 is a slightly smalled 440cc model designed for those keen to keep more workability.
But both 915 drives offer imporoved forgiveness and increase distance through some exciting new technolgies, including the introduction of the Active Recoil Channel.
The channel is wide, deep, long – the brand’s take on a slot-style design – and positioned to coil and spring for consistent spin and speed across the face.
The result is more distance through lower spin and higher ball speeds. What’s more, filling materials, which can often affect performance, haven’t been used.
The Active Recoil Channel also means the centre of gravity of the Titleist 915 drivers has remained low and deep, facilitating a higher moment of inertia for increased forgiveness.
Higher MOI is also brought about through a thinner cast crown, a weight pad, Ti 8-1-1 Light Density Casting and a SFT weight placement in the sole.
Both the 915 D2 and the 915 D3 also boast a new Radial Speed Face, which boosts forgiveness on off-centre hits through thinner heel and toe sections on a forged face insert.
Titleist 915 drivers video review:
Titleist says the combination of enhancements on the 915 D2 delivers 115rpm less spin and three yards more carry, as compared to the 913 D2.
The Titleist 915 D3 averages 250rpm less spin and nine yards more carry than the 913 D3.
Both models feature a SureFit Tour hosel, which offers independent loft and lie adjustment.
The new Titleist 915 drivers come with an RRP of £379 and are on sale now.
Stock shafts include Aldila’s Rogue Black and Rogue Silver and Mitsubishi’s Diamana D+ White, Diamana S+ Blue and Diamana M+ Red.
