Ryoma has finally released the long awaited Maxima line for the left handed players. The Maxima is the successor to the original D-1 driver which has been TSG's most popular driver for 2 years straight. The Maxima improves on the D-1 in many design aspects as well as with overall performance and distance.
The key improvements in the new Maxima include a new spin control unit at the front of the head to help reduce back spin and manage launch. Also the Maxima now has a new spring body and a multi-beam variable forged cup face which has a sweet spot 1.5 times the size of the original D-1! The Maxima is more stream lined and produces better feel and sound. The Maxima improves launch and carry and run all equaling more distance than the D-1. More details on the design of the new Maxima head as well as performance examples are below.
The Maxima like the D-1 is available as head only and shafted and in three different models, the Type D, G and V. Unlike the D-1 where the Premia had a different face material, the D G and V all have the same material this time around. The design of each head is EXACTLY the same. According to Ryoma, the feel and forgiveness and distance should be identical however as complete stock clubs, the differences are in shafts, finished length and face angles and head finish.
Type D: Mirror Chrome, Crystal Black Crown - 9.5* 0.5* Closed, 10.5 11.5* 1.0* Closed
Type G: Gold IP, Crystal Black Crown - 9.5* 0.5* Closed, 10.5 11.5* 1.0* Closed
Type V: Black IP, Crystal Black Crown - All lofts feature square face angles
All three models are priced differently due to the different finishes. For basic reference, the Type D is the all around performer and suits probably the widest range of average golfers. The Type G is the long driver model at 46.5" and is the priciest of the 3 models thanks to a more premium high modulus stock shaft and the gold IP finish. The Type V comes with the heaviest and stiffest stock shafts and a square face angle for the better player and athlete golfer.
The Maxima drivers can be purchased with stock Tour AD shafts, as heads only with weights varying from 189g to 200/201g or custom made with any shaft available in Japan from TSG.
Lofts available and stock shaft flexes available with those lofts;
Type D: 9.5 (6 Stiff, 5 Stiff) 10.5 (5 Stiff, SR, R) 11.5 (R, R2) 45.25"
Type G: 9.5 (S) 105 (SR, R) 11.5 (R2) 46.5"
Type V: 8.5 9.5 (65S, 55SR) 10.5 (65S, 55SR, 55R) - 8.5* is a special order with stock shaft
THIS LISTING IS FOR THE TYPE G MODEL. The type G model is 46.5" and available in 9.5, 10.5* and 11.5 lofts. The stock Tour AD MX-G shaft is a premium high grade mid kick shaft available in S, SR (Stiff/Regular) R or R2 (Soft R/Senior). The Type G is for the player who prefers using a longer length driver to increase swing speed and distance. Players who want a nice gold IP finish and prefer a slightly closed face for a straight to draw ball.
