The new Titleist 917 metal woods feature a unique new adjustable sole weight that is designed to optimize your ball flight.
You can orient this weight cylinder to alter the center of gravity and affect trajectory, direction, and how you square the face at impact.
Called "SureFitCG", this new moveable weight technology originated from the Titleist R&D team's experience with its Tour Pro staff.
It allows you to swing away and know your ball flight is going to be more accurate.
Customizing the CG Location
“We discovered that about 30 percent of our Tour players were customizing the center of gravity location by using a light flat weight and using hot melt,” said Stephanie Luttrell, director of Titleist metalwood development.
“If 30 percent of the world’s best players are needing help in terms of manipulating the center of gravity to get their face to square up appropriately for them, then there’s a huge potential for the golfing public,” Luttrell said.
A Unique Weight System
The weight system in the new Titleist 917 metal woods features both a neutral weight and a draw-fade weight that is heavier on one end.
This weight system is uniquely positioned at an angle in the sole and promotes better spin consistency for the draw and fade a positions.
By making precise adjustments to loft and face angle, you can get the most out of every tee shot and fairway wood swing.
Controlled Flight, Added Distance
Beyond the physics of re-positioning mass, the benefits of the Titleist 917 metalwoods center of gravity system is a more aggressive swing at the ball.
“It is a trajectory tool for right to left, but when you properly fit it, it absolutely is about distance,” Luttrell said.
You can grip it and rip it, knowing your ball flight. You get increased speed and more distance, even on off center hits.
