Titleist 910F and 910F.d fairway woods
Wednesday, January 29, 2014
As most experienced golfers know, finding the right fairway wood can be a real chore, because most players want a club that can ideally hit the ball the same distance off the tee and from the turf. It's not uncommon for pros who finally find such a magical club to cling to it for years.
Thanks to an adjustable hosel system designed into the 910F and 910Fd, Titleist developed a way to optimize fairway woods more easily.
As with the 910D2 and 910D3 drivers, as well as the 913H hybrids, the SureFit Tour adjustable hosel system in the 910F fairway woods can be adjusted into any of 16 combinations with the ability to change the effective lie angle independently. For example, a player can increase the club’s effective loft up to 1.5 degrees or decrease it by .75 degrees without changing the lie angle. At the same time, a player can make the club up to 1.5 degrees more upright or .75 degrees more flat.
The ability to increase or decrease loft means a player can hone these fairway woods to a very specific distance, which improves accuracy when attacking par-5s and increases control off the tee.
The 910F fairway woods are made from stainless steel and are slightly more compact than many other fairway woods. The black crown and pear-shaped profile look traditional at address.
While the 910F is designed for versatility, the 910Fd has a larger head and deeper face to make it more effective off the tee for players looking for an alternative to a driver. The 910F and 910Fd are easily discernible, because the 910F has a non-adjustable weight screw in the back of the sole. The weight screw is positioned forward in the sole on the 910Fd to shift its center of gravity more forward.
The 910F is available in 13.5-, 15-, 17-, 19- and 21-degree versions. The 910Fd is available in 13.5- and 15-degree versions.
Both clubs cost $279 when they were first released.
