    Wilson Staff has added the option of changing the weight of the head in the new M3 driver. This might sound intimidating at first, but it’s easy to do and the changes in flight are clear to see when the weight is changed. It’s also great fun to experiment with the different settings available. Two shaft options are offered as standard, which produce contrasting ball flights, so a fitting is highly recommended. The new matte ice finish on the crown looks fantastic at address.

Our test team gives its thoughts on the Wilson Staff FG Tour M3 driver

Wilson Staff FG Tour M3 driver review:

This is the first adjustable Wilson Staff driver. The loft can be moved down one degree or up two degrees, and the driver comes with three head weight options. The three-gram is ‘Superlight’, to maximise clubhead speed; the seven-gram is the ‘Right Light’, which engineers say is the perfect balance; and the 11-gram offers ‘Traditional’ weighting.

Will suit: players looking to tweak flight and control spin.
