Golf Monthly digital editor Neil Tappin tests two new driver models in his Titleist 915 drivers review

Above, Golf Monthly digital editor Neil Tappin gives shares his views on an exciting new product launch in his Titleist 915 drivers review, while we also hear from Titleist's golf club manager.

The new line of clubs features two 915 drivers - the D2 and D3 - two 915F fairways and two 915H hybrids.

It's a family of clubs that's designed to offer forgiveness and distance through a number of new technological innovations, including the introduction of an Active Recoil Channel.

The channel is wide, deep, long – the brand’s take on a slot-style design – and positioned to coil and spring for lower spin and higher ball speeds.

The two new 915 drivers come in D2 and D3 models, with the former a 460cc head and the latter a slighty more workable 440cc model.

High MOI is brought about through a low and deep centre of gravity, a thinner cast crown, a weight pad, light-density casting and STF weight placement in the sole.

The new Titleist 915 drivers both possess a Radial Speed Face, which improves consistency and boost forgiveness on off-centre hits through thinner heel and toe sections.

According to Titleist, both the 915 D2 and 915 D3 produce more distance and significantly less spin than their predecessors.

They are available with a number of stock shafts to choose from, including Aldila's Rogue Black and Rogue silver.

Both are on sale now with an RRP of £379.

We also caught up with Steve Pelisek, general manager, Titleist Golf Clubs, to get his thoughts on the new 915 D2 and 915 D3 drivers.
