Its a new year and its time to test out some new gear. Let’s begin the season taking a look at hitting it farther off the tee and straighter down the fairway with the newest drivers, fairway woods and golf balls of 2022.
TOUR EDGE EXOTICS
C722 – Driver, $430 & Fairway, $300
E722 – Driver, $400 & Fairway, $350
Both the Extreme (E) and Competition (C) ranges feature the new Ridgeback™ and RyzerSole,™ technologies with different setups designed to produce playing characteristics targeting a specific player looking for unique performance qualities. The Competition Spec player wants more adjustability and higher-grade materials that produce hotter and lower spinning flights, while the Extreme Spec player wants high M.O.I. for increased accuracy, ease of launch and overall playability.
ST 220 (X, Z & G) Drivers – $450
ST-X & ST-Z 220 Fairways – $300
Mizuno’s 220 family features three driver and two fairway models. All the drivers have a weight-saving composite-crown and sole sections. They address two kinds of golfers: those who thrive on complexity and those whose approach is more grab-and-go. The X model fairway wood is designed for players with moderate swing speeds and produces a high draw ball flight while the adjustable Z model is for the more accomplished player that desires a low launch and more stability.
Rogue ST Max Drivers $550 & Fairways $350
The new Rogue ST Drivers represent a breakthrough in driver performance including a Tungsten Speed Cartridge, Jailbreak Speed Frame, and an A.I. designed Flash Face are engineered for maximum speed with exceptional levels of forgiveness. The new Rogue ST Fairway Woods are up to 10 yards longer based on player testing at various skill levels. The two Jailbreak batwings are pushed to the perimeter, providing stiffness while allowing the face to flex for high ball speeds. They’re also engineered with a Tungsten Speed Cartridge, an A.I. Face and a High Strength Face Cup.
LTDx Drivers $500 & Fairways
The LTDx driver family has been re-engineered to produce a combination of low spin, fast ball speed, and extreme forgiveness that can help every player achieve their Longest Total Distance. Using PWR-COR Technology, the LTDx driver achieves zero CG and 5200 MOI for the first time to create a driver unlike any other. The LTDx fairway series uses a balance of front and back weighting to create the best combination of low spin, speed, and high launch for maximum carry with stopping power.
Stealth Carbonwod Plus Drivers $600 & Fairways $430
The Stealth™ driver launches the carbonwood age with a 60X Carbon Twist Face to produce better energy transfer and faster ball speeds across a large area of the face. A nanotexture polyurethane cover encases the entire face to fine tune launch and spin, optimizing total distance in all playing conditions. These clubs also produce the perfect sound which comes from a combination of curvature, shape, and internal stiffening ribs to finely tune acoustics, delivering a sound profile that is both bright and powerful. The Stealth Plus fairway delivers precision playability and fast ball speeds using advanced multi-material construction with a reengineered V Steel™ sole to deliver the ideal blend of playability, shot making and distance.
Tour B – RX, RXS, X & XS – $50
Each of the new four models of the Tour B utilize a different application of REACTIV IQ technology. According to Bridgestone, impact modifiers make the cover play firmer and faster off the driver for more distance and softer off wedges, creating more spin. They have a ball for every swing speed.
Vero X1 – $40
Using a proprietary formulation and manufacturing process, along with a high modulus, metal-infused mantle, the Vero X1 features enhanced perimeter-weighting, that results in the highest allowable velocity off the club face and distance that has to be seen to be believed. Incorporating a nano-engineered transition layer to manage the interface between the mantle and a thin cast urethane cover, the VERO X1 delivers spin, control, and feel unlike any other ball.
Triad – $40
The Triad urethane golf ball is designed to do everything. Built with the exclusive T3 Technology, Triad golf balls will fly longer and straighter, hold greens better, and roll truer. The high MOI construction, ultra-thin urethane cover, and patented Tri-Balanced™ construction combine to form the most perfectly balanced golf ball in the world.
Q-Star Tour – $35
The fourth generation of the brands popular mid-range urethane ball has all the tour ball features with the benefits for moderate swing speeds. The Q-Star Tour has a 72 compression, an updated FastLayer core and an ultra-thin cover. Choose from white or yellow.
AVX – $50
The new AVX is designed with advanced technology that delivers low flight, low iron spin for longer distance, incredibly soft feel and now, even more control. The AVX features a new core formulation, a high flex casing layer, a softer cast urethane elastomer cover system, and a new unique spherically-tiled 348 catenary dimple design. Available in White and High Optic Yellow.
Chrome Soft, Chrome Soft X, Chrome Soft X LS – $50
The refreshed Chrome Soft family of golf balls features precision technology that delivers very tight dispersion rates and consistently fast ball speeds. Callaway enhanced every component and design feature of the Chrome Soft to create the highest quality golf ball ever produced from the brand. Get fit for the model that best fits your game and choose from white or yellow.
