TaylorMade Golf has launched its new GAPR trio of products, designed to fill the gaps at the long end of your bag.
Designers want to provide a golf club that offers distance, carry and control combined with consistent yardages and accuracy.
The three products allow golfers to choose a shape and distance required to achieve perfect gapping.
In each of the three different GAPR models, engineers have incorporated TaylorMade's innovative SpeedFoam technology, which was first introduced in the P790 irons last autumn.
Strategically-placed ultra-low center of gravity in each GAPR model
creates a hotter, higher launch for more distance and improved playability.
Designed primarily for players with faster ballspeeds, GAPR LO is the smallest of the three models and features a low-forward CG for extreme distance with a mid-to-low trajectory.
Its driving iron-type shape has a players profile that allows for excellent flighting and workability, and the mid-thin sole width delivers maximum performance and versatility for the stronger player.
Slightly larger in size than the GAPR LO, GAPR MID was designed with players of all skill levels in mind. Featuring a CG that is ultra-low and forward for maximum distance and a mid-high trajectory, GAPR MID has an iron face profile that inspires confidence and easy alignment and a medium-wide sole width for ease of play and versatility.
Similar to the GAPR MID, GAPR HI was engineered for the widest range of players. The largest of the three models, GAPR HI features an ultra-low/back CG for maximum distance and a high, penetrating trajectory. Where the HI differs from the other 2 models is its shaping, which features modern Rescue shaping with a high-toe, peanut shaped clubhead. The dropped crown feature provides lower CG and improved alignment.
“More Tour players are adopting utility clubs to bridge the gap between their longest iron and shortest fairway wood. GAPR provides innovative options for players to confidently hit a specific yardage with a specific trajectory. With SpeedFoam, Loft Sleeve and Speed Pocket technologies, golfers have the performance and adjustability to finetune their long game for the right combination of distance, versatility and precision.”
