16 discovergolf.com.au NEW 816 HYBRID TECHNOLOGY • The Active Recoil Channel—a long, deep channel, positioned along the sole of the clubhead, close to the leading edge—delivers more distance by actively flexing at impact to launch the ball with lower spin and higher speed. The Active Recoil Channel (ARCTM) allows the entire clubface to deflect at impact for high speed. (ARC is particularly effective on hybrids, which are most often hit off the ground with the ball impacting low on the face. Shots hit lower on the face generally produce more spin, which is counteracted by ARC.) • An Ultra Thin Face works in combination with the Active Recoil Channel to deliver increased ball speed across the entire face. The high-speed, constant thickness face insert, made of high-strength Carpenter steel, is the thinnest face insert Titleist R&D has ever developed. • A precise High-MOI design with a low center of gravity (CG) location delivers stability and forgiveness by preserving ball speed across the face for distance consistency on off center hits. Improved CG locations (slightly deeper, and lower in H2) increase launch up to 1o for more shot stopping control. A heavier standard SureFit Tour Weight (11g), which concentrates more weight in a low, central position behind the Active Recoil Channel on each model, helps optimise CG properties.
