Wilson Launch Pad 2 Driver Review
Carry more yards, hit more fairways and solve the slice with the Launch Pad 2 driver. Fully loaded with game improvement features that make it highly forgiving and scarily fast, so you can go from the tee box to the fairway in a single swing.
Solve the slice? This may sound like a reoccurring theme with no drivers on the market but Wilson has introduced draw bias technology to help straighten ball flights and lower scores. It’s super forgiving and fast! Advanced computer modelling results in a tour-proven PKR face geometry that delivers faster ball speeds across the entire face. Distance is made easy with the new Launch Pad 2 driver as it’s one of the lightest on the market, coupled with a lightweight Evenflow shaft means effortless swing speed for all types of players.
Wilson have engineered the head of the driver to have more face surface area than the previous model by 5.2% which helps create better contact and improves the forgiveness overall. On average 68.3% of all shots are hit on the toe half of the face for average handicap golfers. The head features an increased bulge radius to disguise closed face angle and offset hosel transition, same as the current Launch Pad. The CG location has been repositioned in the face-to-rear direction as the loft angle increases.
On testing the LP2 outperformed its predecessor in all aspects. Club head and ball speed was up which increased distance by up to 12 yards, a fair distance for a driver with only minor differences and improvements.
