When it comes to drivers, manufacturers can design clubs two ways: Create something that should appeal to a wide range of recreational golfers and then work with pros to get that club into play, or create a driver that appeals to accomplished golfers but try to make it playable for the masses. Traditionally, Wilson made drivers with mid- and higher-handicap players in mind, but with the Dynapower drivers, the company sought feedback and validation from staff professionals first. As a result for 2023, Wilson made the Dynapower Carbon and the Dynapower Titanium for two different player types.
Both Dynapower drivers come standard with a six-position adjustable hosel that allows players and fitters to increase or decrease the loft by as many as 2 degrees. They also have a variable-thickness Peak Kinetic Response (PKR) face that helps protect ball speed on off-center hits.
The Dynapower Carbon driver was made for golfers who want a low-spin option with a low-to-mid launch that allows players to hit both draws and fades. It has a large carbon fiber crown that reduces weight on the club’s top and lowers the center of gravity, along with a carbon fiber panel in the toe portion of the sole.
A 12-gram weight in the back of the head increases forgiveness, and the weight saved using carbon fiber in the crown and sole has been repositioned in the front of the head, which shifts the center of gravity forward to increase ball speed and reduce spin.
The Dynapower Titanium driver is an all-titanium construction with a 16-gram weight in the back of the head that pulls the center of gravity down and away from the hitting area. That should increase spin, help produce a higher launch for more carry distance and boost the moment of inertia for more stability.
Wilson said the Dynapower Carbon produces about 250 rpm less spin than the Dynapower Titanium. At the same time, the…
