designed to deliver an exceptional
Compared with conventional drivers, the MAXIMA TYPE D driver makes it possible to hit a ball with an initial velocity of up to 1.7 m/s higher, reduces the ball’s backspin rate by up to 900 rpm, and provides a 3.1-times larger sweet area, all combining to deliver a longer ball distance and greater control of direction. The combination of a club head of advanced design and a shaft with a stiffer bending profile makes it easier to hit a ball accurately and keep it from slicing, which inspires greater confidence in driver shots.
The traditional shape of the club head and an innovative easy-to-hit design makes the MAXIMA TYPE D an all-round driver for a diverse range of players—from average golfers to serious and professional players.
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 TYPE D 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 TYPE D 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
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 TYPE D 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 TYPE D 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 TYPE D driver offers.
TourAD M2-D 45.25-inch ｜standard shaft
Stiffer bending profile for
a powerful trajectoryThis 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.
BEYOND POWER 46.5-inch shaft
Whip-like effect for
greater distanceThe 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
serious golfersThis 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.
