Fights side-spin with 4mm offset and 2° closed face angle
Accurate Stainless Steel construction
Low center of gravity gets the ball up in the air
Thin face transfers more energy to the ball for higher speed
Slicing Down the Fairway?
Are you finding that your ball flight consistently curves right? If you have an outside-to-inside swing compared to the target plane, slicing the ball is probably an issue. Slicing occurs when the ball curves in a left-to-right motion across the sky. The reason for this type of trajectory is that the ball is actually spinning in a clockwise direction. The Response Offset fairway woods are designed to“reset" your ball path making it straighter and alleviating the sidespin that causes the ball to deflect right.
When hitting with fairway woods, the key factors for keeping your ball in play is launch angle and spin. Both contribute to the accuracy of your shot and your likelihood of making it to the green faster.
The Root of Slicing
The swing path is the main contributor of the slice. But if you look closer, it's actually the tangential force applied to the ball that causes the clockwise spin. If you have a slice that starts out going right, then the club face may also be open (instead of square) at impact. This makes the launch point right from the very beginning.
Changing your swing path to be more perpendicular to the target plane is definitely one way to reduce slicing. But due to physical limitations this can sometimes be difficult for many players, especially seniors and beginners.
The Benefit of Offset Woods
Launch angle, spin, and initial velocity are the three key factors in your fairway play. The Response Offset fairway woods can greatly assist in improving the first two. It can even improve your ball speed for better distance.
The 4mm offset of the Response fairway woods “resets" your ball path in the case of an outside to inside swing path, effectively launching it straight towards the target. Instead of launching with a clockwise spin and towards the right of the target, the impact happens closer to the center of the clubface with less spin and a straighter trajectory.
Because the shot is launched straighter with less sidespin, less energy is also dissipated at impact. This “extra" energy is transferred from the Response Offset fairway wood to the ball making your shot not only straighter but longer.
