The Ultimate Head Structure – Like No Other
After spending 8 years developing the previous model, which was evaluated by many golfers as being easy to hit. That Greatly exceeds its performance appeared “the next-generation UT”.
The higher velocity with “Forged titanium cup face” with enhanced deflection area. Get a great low spin with the 60g “Overtake weight” placed just below the hitting point. Deep impact by “Bounce body” that amplifies power by twisting back. And the gentleness of the deep CG of the “power booster” that follows from behind the head.
MAXIMA U has evolved into an impossible UT by the ultimate mechanism with its own “DSI technology”. Everyone who has it can feel the ultimate “flying distance and forgiveness”.
Head structure that produces the impact of maximum efficiency
Since the UT made of general stainless steel or maraging steel has a large specific weight of the material and becomes thick, the center of gravity of the head and the ball cannot be aligned when the loft angle is more than 20deg.
The head of MAXIMA U has a forged titanium 4-piece structure in which different materials are joined by a unique method, and its manufacturing cost is more than twice that of a general UT. The CG of the head and the ball are aligned, and the impact energy efficiency is significantly improved. With the ultimate low and deep CG, distant pins that could not be aimed at until now are also within range.
“Overtake weight” for extremely low spin
Get a great low spin with the 60g “Overtake weight” placed just below the hitting point. The CG of the head is further lowered by reducing the volume of powder metallurgy tungsten with a specific density of 18 (Tungsten used in general golf heads has a specific density of around 8.2.), which is one of the metals with the highest specific density. When the “Overtake weight” comes out in front of the ball at the impact, the extremely low spin is released by the vertical gear effect generated.
“Bounce body” that can get a deep impact
By making a difference in rigidity between the upper part and the lower part of the head, the torsional power of the entire head is amplified. At impact, the upper part of the head, which suppresses rigidity, twists backward, and the lower part of the head, which has high rigidity and is heavy, pushes forward according to the law of inertia. A new function that amplifies energy with the repulsive force of twisting that occurs above and below the body. The effect can be felt from the deep impact.
