Grandista LS-001- The brand's second driver release. For those who are not familiar withGrandista they produce really good drivers and fairway woods. The owner, founder and designer Kazutaka Yoshida is a former professional golfer. At one point he was ranked 3rd - 5th on Japan's long drive championship.
This man doesn't fool around, he sourced the best DAT55G from Japan by Daido steel co for the face of this new driver.
Both Yoshida-san's drivers have beautiful shapes at address. This new LS-001 has a total of 9 adjustable weights on the head each made of different materials. 3.8g is tungsten, 2g is Titanium. With each of the weightsadjustableyou can do some major fine tuning.
The head volume is 450cc's and the head isavailablehand picked between 9.5 and 11.5 with head weights from 192g to 210g. Customers often order custom face angles and these can be hadsquareto 1.3* open.
When comparing thecgdepth, height, and distance from the face vs the previousGrandistadriver this is the slightly more forgiving driver. The new LS-001 is 5mm more shallow than the previous RS-001.
It's a low spin yet high launch head which is not common. The face seems longer heel to toe. Higher MOI, lower CG deeper back helps this become a straight shot driver.
