Introducing the all-new Astro Tour V IV Driver from Masters Golf.
Masters Golf was founded in 1979. For over 30 years, their brand philosophy has been built upon the pursuit of optimum distance performance for all golfers and the development of clubs designed for ultimate ease of use.
Their Astro Tour V series drivers have been extremely popular among experienced amateur golfers due to the exceptional distance performance along with a traditional deep shape preferred by purists. This 4th iteration Astro Tour V IV driver follows this fundamental design concept of its predecessors. Though it has an R&A allowed max volume of 460cc, the appearance at the address looks much more compact due to the deep face / deep back design which also helps promote a very strong trajectory.
The Astro Tour V IV driver also features a 14g stainless weight plate towards the back end of the sole which helps minimize energy transfer at impact. CG angle is increased to help capture the ball for a stronger trajectory. Because of the deep back a low placement of the stainless plate, this CG design promotes a higher launch with greater directional stability.
Another important feature of this head is the use of SP700 Ti Forged Cup Face to significantly expand the effective sweet spot area to minimize loss of ball speed with off centered hits.
The head is offered in various lofts from 8deg to 11deg. Head weight can be adjusted to match your desired build specs using the adjustable weight screw on the sole just below the steel plate.
As some of you may have also noticed, 2021 may be the year for the return of deep faced deep back designed heads as I am starting to see some US brands bring back traditional pear shaped heads with deep faced / deep back design. Together with more modern techniques to increase forgiveness and MOI, I think brands are cycling back to more traditional head shapes. This is a very welcome return for some players as most of the major brands really stuck to a more larger and shallow back design for quite some time now. Astro Tour has stuck to its roots and maintained their fundamental head design with the Astro Tour V series. and now with modern techniques to make the head more friendly and playable, the Astro Tour V IV driver should appeal to a more broader user base.
