GEAR | WHAT’S NEW 19 NEW GEAR THE LATEST & GREATEST FROM THE BIGGEST BRANDS TAYLORMADE GAPR NEW TRIO OF PRODUCTS ENGINEERED TO DELIVER GOLFERS MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE TO FILL DISTANCE GAPS IN THEIR LONG GAME. Nearly every golfer has a gapping challenge in the long part of their set; specifically, the difficult-to-manage yardage between the longest playable iron and the shortest metalwood. TaylorMade set out to engineer a line of products that allows golfers to get the distance, carry and control needed to fill these gaps. The result is GAPR, three distinct products, which invite golfers to choose their shape, find their distance and bridge their gap. In each of the three different GAPR models, engineers have incorporated TaylorMade’s innovative SpeedFoam technology, which was first introduced in the globally-successful P790 irons last fall. SpeedFoam serves the dual purpose of generating ball speed while also dampening vibrations to create optimal sound and feel. SpeedFoam is injected into the club head in liquid form before expanding within the club, providing increased face support while maintaining the soft, solid sound and feel that golfers prefer. Additionally, strategically placed ultra-low centre of gravity in each GAPR model creates a higher launch for more distance and improved playability. > SHOP THE BIGGEST RANGE | BEST ADVICE | LOWEST PRICE | SHOP 24/7 OR LOCATE A STORE | drummondgolf.com.au GAPR LO Designed primarily for players with faster ballspeeds, GAPR LO is the smallest of the three models and features a low-forward CG for extreme distance with a mid-to-low trajectory. It’s driving iron-type shape has a players profile that allows for excellent flighting and workability, and the mid- thin sole width delivers maximum performance and versatility for the stronger player. GAPR MID Slightly larger in size than the GAPR LO, GAPR MID was designed with players of all skill levels in mind. Featuring a CG that is ultra-low and forward for maximum distance and a mid-high trajectory, GAPR MID has an iron face profile that inspires confidence and easy alignment and a medium-wide sole width for ease of play and versatility. GAPR HI Similar to the GAPR MID, GAPR HI was engineered for the widest range of players. The largest of the three models, GAPR HI features an ultra-low/back CG for maximum distance and a high, penetrating trajectory. Where the HI differs from the other 2 models is its shaping, which features modern RescueTM shaping with a high-toe, peanut shaped clubhead. The dropped crown feature provides lower CG and improved alignment.
