913D2 Draw Bias


Hookshot33

Recommended Posts

Looking for some feedback on the new 913D2 now that it's been out for a while. The idea of a more forgiving driver is intriguing coming from a 910D3 but as someone whose miss is a over-draw/hook, the phrasing "draw bias" has me thinking twice.

 

For those of you playing the new D2, do you find it significantly easier to turn over compared to other drivers? Or is this mostly a way for titleist to market their driver to high(er) handicaps that fight a slice?

The question was recently asked in the forums at Titleist.com & here was Titleist's response. Ps> I went with d3 as I could not control the spin in the d2 without going to a very low loft. Also, the 913d3 is still very forgiving, more so than the 910d3. Great driver, IMO

----------------------------

We called the 913 D2 "draw biased" because of the CG location, and not because of face angle (.5 open) or extra weighting in the heel. The 913 D2 has the same face angle ( .5° open ) as the 910 D2 and is actually less draw biased than the 910D2 because the CG is more forward in the head. With the new 913 drivers, since the launch and spin are equivalent, the difference in the two heads is that the CG is further back in the 913 D2 than the 913 D3, which means you can turn the clubhead from right to left easier (draw) than with the 913 D3 (as a right hander).
The further back in the head the CG is located, the more draw biased, forgiving and stable the clubhead. I hope that makes sense. The 913 D2 is only draw biased in the sense that you will be able to turn the clubhead over easier than with the D3 model.
As always, we would recommend going to a good clubfitter :)

Switched to 913D2 from 910D3 and find the 913 to be straighter. I've hit it on the range maybe 10 different sessions and played with it twice and if anything I would call it "high and straight biased". My miss is either a block right or over-cooked hook/draw and I have blocked a few but have not hooked one drive yet. The only time I get any semblance of a hook is when I toe it. For me, the 913 D2 just goes high and straight....and far. I do think you may be right in that it is just a way for them to market to higher handicappers. I bet most people wouldn't even notice had Titleist not put "draw bias" in their marketing materials. That's my experience so far.

Also, you can open the clubface to mitigate it if it is actually a problem.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
