In addition to the flight distance performance, we also stuck to the appearance
Among the Yamaha golf brands, the Impress series is currently positioning itself as a brand specializing in stroke distance. Derived from the Impress RMX UD+2 irons released in 2014, the Impress UD+2 series delivers long distance performance that lives up to its slogan “Plus 2nd fastest distance” and has won the support of golfers. to change. The current model of “Impress UD+2” will be released in 2020, and it has been speculated that a new model will be announced periodically in 2022. However, Yamaha Golf has decided to renew the series. As a new Impress, the “Impress Drive Star” series was announced. “Impress Drive Star” is also a model with overwhelming flight distance performance that follows the flow of “UD+2”, but the biggest difference is that while pursuing flight distance performance, it also has an appearance net. In fact, female pro Chie Arimura loves her ranged performance, good directionality, and ease of position, and is currently gearing up to put her in real combat. Let’s start with the Impress Drive Star driver. The first thing that catches your eye is the “counterweight system”, which places approximately 25 grams of weight at the toe, back and heel, centered on the center of gravity. As a result, a large moment of inertia of 5570g cm2 is achieved, improving flight distance performance and straightness. In addition to this, it can be said that it is characteristic that it has a pear shape that looks pointed, unlike the shape that is long in the back direction and has a large projected area, which is often found in heads with a large moment of inertia. Of course, there are many technologies to improve flight distance performance. First of all, it is equipped with “BOOSTBOX”, which is a fusion of “BOOSTRING” which fixes the neighborhood of the ring-shaped face, which was also installed in the existing series, and “SPEEDBOX” which increases the rigidity around the face. It is designed to suppress vibration at impact and increase muzzle velocity without wasting energy. Additionally, noting that golfers tend to subconsciously try to hit the ball at the center of head height, the crown shape and face design are designed so that the sweet spot is located slightly above above the center of the face.
