The Heavy Driver now in black and white
TaylorMade's success with its R11 driver that features a white crown inevitably would inspire others to follow suit. Boccieri Golf is among them, with the introduction of its DFT Driver in white.
"White drivers offer an optical option that some golfers prefer," Boccieri president and CEO Stephen Boccieri said in a news release. "So we're combining this with our unique technology to create the game's most attractive high-performance driver."
The Heavy Driver in white or black features its Dimple Face Technology (DFT), designed to maximize coefficient of restitution, while allowing the clubhead to retain its structural integrity. Meanwhile, the club was engineered with a 50-gram backweight in the butt end of the shaft, moving the club's balance point farther from the clubhead. This, the company claims, helps with "plane, tempo, transition, impact and balance."
