CHICAGO, Nov. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Wilson Staff launches the world's most adjustable multi-piece driver featuring two interchangeable sole plates for optimal launch, spin and extraordinary distance. The Wilson Staff Triton combines five elements of technology aimed at providing golfers with a new and exciting driver experience.
The initial concept was introduced by industrial designer Eric Sillies and perfected by the Wilson LABS team over a period of 16 months. The name Triton was selected as it communicates characteristics of power, strength and speed. It also speaks to specific product attributes including the three sole weight ports and the tri-winged shape of the sole plates, which were inspired by the aerodynamic manta ray. "It was a new, fun experience to work with people and concepts from outside the golf industry, but there were numerous challenges as well. I am extremely proud of the work done by the Wilson LABS team and maybe more importantly, the final quality and performance of the Triton driver. This is truly a world class product," said Michael Vrska, Wilson Golf's Global Director of Innovation. The Triton comes equipped with two interchangeable sole plates - one titanium and one carbon fiber - for significant launch and spin changes. The 22-gram titanium sole plate is optimized for the majority of players who need mid to high launch and low spin while the nine-gram carbon fiber sole plate is geared for players who prefer a more penetrating ball flight and lower spin. Swing Active Technology, the 1:1 revolutionary crown alignment feature is designed to make hitting the sweet spot intuitive and consistent, improving ball striking for improved accuracy.
