The Acushnet Company will begin shipping its 913D drivers on Nov. 1. The 913D2 and 913D3 each will in sell stores for around $399.
Each of the drivers – probably the best looking Titleist drivers ever produced – will feature a forged face insert as well as a new SureFit Tour weight and fitting precision provided by the SureFit Tour adjustable hosel.
The Acushnet Co. calls the 913D2 and D2 “most playable and forgiving drivers” drivers it has made in the Titleist family, with improved launch conditions from a lower, more optimal center of gravity (CG) position.
“The new 913D2 and 913D3 drivers offer the highest performance of any adjustable drivers on the market, particularly when it comes to speed and forgiveness,” said Dan Stone, Vice President of Research and Development, Titleist Golf Clubs. “Every serious golfer, from tour players to amateurs of all skill levels, will experience more distance potential and better driving performance with 913.”
Stone said the 913D2 driver features a 460cc full-pear shaped head designed for maximum forgiveness and a slight draw bias, while the 913D3 has a 445cc classic-pear shape that is forgiving with tour-inspired workability. Unlike the 910 series, both D2 and D3 models offer the same launch and spin characteristics to provide maximum fitting flexibility.
“Golfers can now choose their 913 model based on size or shape preference, amount of forgiveness or workability, and amount of draw bias,” said Stone. “They can then dial-in their launch and spin settings precisely using the SureFit Tour hosel.”
Twenty-six players used 913 drivers at the 2012 PGA Championship, including winner Rory McIlroy.
“The new 913 drivers further define our commitment and success in providing players with the game’s highest performing clubs with preferred looks, sound and feel,” said Steve Pelisek, General Manager, Titleist Golf Clubs. “Our previous generation 910 drivers proved to be the most innovative drivers in our history. With 913, we’ve raised the bar even higher.”
