The fairway woods ($300; 14, 16, 18 degrees) include  3-gram and 30-gram weights in front and rear portions of the sole. With the heavy weight forward, the goal is to reduce spin; while shifting the heavy weight to the back aims to boost dynamic loft to increase launch angle. The sole weight on the hybrid ($250; 18, 20, 23 degrees) is not adjustable but helps positon weight low and forward for a more penetrating trajectory.

Both products are expected to be in stores Jan. 16.
