New TaylorMade wood is easier to hit

TaylorMade Golf has unveiled a new version of its V Steel fairway wood. Like the original, the new V Steel features steel, Pull-Face construction, in which the clubface and clubhead are produced separately. That allows TaylorMade engineers to create an exceptionally thin, flexible, yet strong clubface that delivers high COR to promote higher ball speed and long distance. Likewise, the new V Steel borrows the original model’s sleek, tour-proven head shape.
However, the new V Steel differs from the original in four key ways.

The new V Steel is equipped with TaylorMade’s TGT grip and TaylorMade’s M.A.S.2 graphite fairway wood shaft, a lightweight, mid-torque offering that promotes an optimal combination of distance and control. Available models include 3-wood (15 degree), 5-wood (18 degree), 7-wood (20 degree), and 9 wood (22 degree).
“TaylorMade’s new V Steel retains the beautiful, traditional shape of the original, which tour pros love,” says Tom Olsavsky, director of product creation, “yet its lower, deeper CG position and improved sole design make it far easier to hit. That, we believe, will make this an extremely popular club with players of all skill levels.”
The new V Steel has a recommended retail price of £129 (graphite) / £119 (steel) and will be available from mid to late September.
