New for 2015 the Modart MA01DS Adjustable Shaft Driver – Last year the surpise brand of the Japan Golf Fair was Modart which flew completely under the radar until it’s launch and besides a complete line up of equipment from woods to multiple sets of irons and wedges 2 Modart drivers were released the MA01S and MA01D which although similar in appearance were designed for players who desire two different flight characteristics. I personally played the MA01S for almost all of last year and fell in love with it’s mute feel and sound during impact combined with it’s low spin design and good distance.
This year Modart has further evolved the MA01 driver with the new “DS” and it features a new adjustable hosel not for loft or lie or face angle but only for interchangeable shafts. I got to hit the new MA01DS on the trackman at Modart HQ last month and walked away impressed as I usually do when it comes to Suda-san’s designs. Follow the Jump to Read…
So while it looks similar (consider this an evolution) there are some major changes all around starting with the head size, the new “DS” is 5 cc’s bigger at 440cc, Modart also changed the face material to Japan SP700 for a slightly softer forged cup face feel at impact while at the same time shifting the center of gravity more forward not only making it more workable but also reducing spin. It’s finished in a lovely matte black finish.
What’s been left alone is it’s stunning shape which will totally appeal to the purest or player who likes looking down at the square face with a compact shape, when you buy from TSG it’s available with a ton of different shaft, we also offer the adapter so you start with 2 shafts to test, some of our Seven Dreamers customers have been combo’ing this up with the distance option and the results have been reported as jaw dropping distance with a penetrating trajectory that cuts through the air like a knife.
The official launch date is April but TSG has had these for the past month in 9.5 and 10.5 lofts, feel free to email us with your questions at [email protected] and we can go over a custom build for you.
