Enhanced MAXIMA driver with an ultra-resilient club face and body Delivers a distance of up to 20 yards longer than conventional drivers

The RYOMA MAXIMA driver is known for producing a straighter and more boring ball flight for an extended roll distance. But we did not stop there—we have added enhancements to its club face and body to make the MAXIMA Special Tuning drivers, which enables a player to hit a ball with an unprecedented level of initial velocity. This enhanced driver offers a sweet area 30% larger than that of our previous-generation non-conforming driver; an initial velocity imparted to the ball at impact is bolstered by up to 2.7 m/s compared with conventional conforming drivers; and a newly designed low-spinning unit placed inside the head reduces the amount of backspin to the ball to a minimum. Unlike conventional non-conforming drivers that make a distinctively piercing sound when hitting a ball, RYOMA’s patented technology makes it possible to offer a high-COR driver that makes little sound at ball impact. It is a driver that balances all aspects of its performance at a high level.

・The MAXIMA Special Tuning driver, whose club face has a COR that exceeds the limit established under the R&A and USGA rules, is not allowed for use in any official golf tournament. ・When using the MAXIMA Special Tuning driver on a course, keep the distance to the preceding party 20 yards or more farther than normal so as to avoid disrupting their play. ・As the MAXIMA Special Tuning driver has an extremely thin club face, keep the head speed at 44 m/s or below at ball impact. ・The warranty covers repairs to the club only when it is used at the head speed of 44 m/s or below; it does not cover repairs when it is used at the head speed of more than 44 m/s.

  • Ball’s initial velocity boosted by 1.7 m/s

    The club head is equipped with the Multi-Beam Cup Face II, which bends inwardly uniformly across the face at ball impact and provides a large sweet area to impart a consistently high initial velocity to a ball regardless of the point of impact on the face. In addition, the power-spring body is designed to make the most of the rebounding characteristic of a ball. As a ball stays on the club face for 20% longer at impact than on conventional club faces, the ball gets compressed to the core before rebounding into shape after release, which makes it possible to hit a ball with an initial velocity of up to 1.7 m/s higher.

  • Ball’s backspin rate down by 900 rpm to create a boring flight

    The MAXIMA Special Tuning driver boasts RYOMA’s patented club head structure, which features a low-spin unit, an anti-roll power booster, and an under-press crown and has a center of gravity lowered to the extent that is roughly equivalent to the space between two grove lines on the face. The lower center of gravity of the head and the extended time that a ball stays on the face at impact combine to reduce the ball’s backspin rate by up to 900 rpm, compared with conventional driver heads. This makes the MAXIMA Special Tuning one of the lowest-spin drivers in the industry. A low-spinning ball released with a higher initial velocity and on a higher trajectory has a tendency to stay on a boring flight before making a gradual descent at a gentle angle toward the ground, on which the ball rolls longer.

  • Optimized and consistent ball launch angle

    The combination of a low-spin unit and an anti-roll power booster enables the player to hit a ball consistently at an optimum launch angle. Even on a horizontally off-center hit, the power-spring body minimizes the wobbling of the club face; on a vertically off-center hit, the bending characteristic of the power-spring body helps optimize the ball launch angle. The MAXIMA Special Tuning driver ensures that the ball is launched consistently at an optimum angle regardless of the point of impact on the club face. Aided also by the driver’s ability to hit a lower-spinning ball with a higher initial velocity, the player can experience a significantly longer distance on driver shots.

  • Reduces backspin by 60% to lower the severity of hooks and slices by half

    With conventional drivers, a ball stays on a club face for 4.7 ten-thousandth of a second at impact. With the MAXIMA Special Tuning driver, which incorporates the power-spring body, a ball stays on the face for 20% longer—for 5.6 ten-thousandth of a second. This deeper, longer impact of the ball on the face results in up to 60% reduction in the ball’s sidespin rate. Even on an off-center hit, a hooked or sliced ball will lose its sidespin during the flight and return to a straighter flight path toward the target. A diverse range of players—from average golfers to serious and professional players—will have a better chance to improve their scores by taking advantage of the superb directionality that the MAXIMA Special Tuning driver offers.

TourAD M2-D 45.25-inch shaft

Stiffer bending profile for
a powerful trajectory
This flagship shaft is designed to provide a greater chance of hitting the ball dead center with a higher velocity. It makes it easier to hit the ball accurately and keep it from slicing. This all-round shaft ensures consistent performance for golfers of any swing type.

TourAD M2-G 46.5-inch shaft

Incredibly easy-to-swing
longer shaft
This is a specially designed 46.5-inch shaft. The driver with this longer shaft is as easy to swing as one with a conventional 45-inch shaft. With this shaft, the player does not have to worry about adjusting the timing of impact and can achieve a consistent long-distance performance.

BEYOND POWER 46.5-inch shaft

Whip-like effect for
greater distance
The BEYOND POWER shaft provides infinite flex that benefits golfers of any swing type. During a swing, the whip-like effect travels progressively from the grip to the tip, giving an accelerated speed to the head while eliminating awkwardness associated with swinging a longer shaft. This shaft enables golfers to hit longer-distance shots beyond their potential.

BEYOND POWER + PLUS 46-inch shaft

Designed for
serious golfers
This shaft is a refined version of the BEYOND POWER shaft, combining the original’s characteristic that contributes to an increased head speed with an enhancement made to prevent a ball from traveling left. With this shaft, even a hard hit is unlikely to cause the ball to balloon. It is a revolutionary shaft that benefits both average golfers who are not used to a longer shaft and top amateurs in achieving a longer distance and improving their scores.
