200 Steel driver.

The No.1 metal wood used by the world’s leading professional golfers is now available in steel for under £200.

TaylorMade Golf has launched its long-awaited 200 Steel driver and fairway woods featuring the same state-of-the-art construction as the successful titanium 300 Series.

Already the best-selling driver in the US since its introduction last autumn, the 300 now has a younger brother which is due to be launched in European in early October. The steel shaft will have a recommended price of £199, the graphite shaft £225.

"The 200 Steel is a breakthrough in steel wood development," says TaylorMade’s Tom Olsavsky. "We've taken the face-weld technology developed for our titanium drivers and incorporated its high-strength alloy casting into the steel marketplace. "The benefits will be felt by the core golfer immediately. The 200 Steel delivers the crisp, solid sound and feel of steel while offering the best launch conditions, forgiveness and playability."

Rails on the woods.

TaylorMade claims the driver, with its deep face, will be easier to hit "off the deck." while the dual rail sole in the fairway wood gives more confidence from the rough.

The shaft in the 200 Steel driver will be the longest in the TaylorMade range at 44.5 inches and be available in four 8.5, 9.5, 10.5 and 12 degree lofts. There are six fairway models (2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, 7- and 9-wood)

First shipment of the 200 Steel series will, initially, only be available in a men’s right-handed version but left-handed and women's drivers and fairway woods will be available in November.
