If it's super game improvement that you're looking for, then the Wilson Launch Pad range could be just the clubs for you, as we found out in our reviews of the woods and irons back in 2019.
Fast forward to 2022 and the brand are back again with an upgrade to the family which is designed specifically to help high-handicappers play better golf.
The range includes forgiving irons, a slice-combatting driver and fairway woods, as well as a mixture of hybrid and FYbrid clubs to help improve your gapping as you move through the set.
"The original range achieved great success in meeting its main objective to help less skilled golfers get the ball airborne and gain consistency in the strike, but we knew it could be more aesthetically pleasing."
"The new Launch Pad range features optimised technology on the irons to keep the club head on the ball and out of the grass, while in the woods it helps players overcome one of the most frustrating problems in golf - the slice - so shots fly straighter and with more accuracy. The look of the irons and the woods now gives players greater confidence over the ball at address and test performance results are extremely encouraging."
Jon Pergande, Manager of Golf Club Innovation, Wilson Golf.
Wilson Launch Pad Driver
The Launch Pad woods feature an inherent draw bias, which help high-handicap golfers to combat their slice so that shots fly straighter and with more accuracy.
The Launch Pad driver is one of the lightest on the market, and combines with a lightweight EvenFlow shaft to provide effortless swing speed for all golfers.
With a PKR (Peak Kinetic Response) face, also seen on the Wilson D9 Driver, the driver is created with advanced computer modelling for better geometry and improved ball speed across the face.
The design of the driver has an increased bulge radius which helps to disguise the closed face and the offset hosel, whilst there is a 2˚ upright lie angle and progressive heelside weighting to help reduce the chance of a slice.
The Launch Pad Driver is available in 9˚, 10.5 or 13˚ with an RRP of £305.
Wilson Launch Pad Fairway Woods
The fairway woods are designed with the same ultra-lightweight club head and shaft as the driver, for an effortless swing and better results on each shot.
A high strength and super thin Carpenter Custom 455 face delivers higher ball speeds for great control, feel and impressive distance.
With a RRP of £200, the fairway woods are available with the same shaft and grip options as used on the driver, in lofts of 15˚, 19˚ and 22˚. Left-handed models are available in the 3 wood and 5 wood options.
Wilson Launch Pad Hybrids
The Launch Hybrids add the option of a 22.5˚ and 25.5˚ hybrid and a stronger lofted 19.5˚ FYbrid for both men and women, allowing you to make sure that they fit right in the gap in your bag.
The hybrids feature the same high-strength, super thin Carpenter Custom 455 face which is found on the fairway woods, as well as being lightweight and draw biased to give extra help to those golfers who struggle with long irons and want a little extra distance.
The Wilson Launch Pad hybrid and FYbrid models are available at an RRP of £175 with the same shaft and grip as the driver and fairway woods.
Wilson Launch Pad Irons
The look of the Launch Pad irons has changed dramatically from the original version introduced two years ago, with an update of the generative designed turf interaction sole designed to deliver consistency in the swing and at impact.
Weight has been removed from the clubhead of the new irons, for a thinner topline look at address, while the mass has been lowered to help generate a higher launch and more distance without any extra effort.
New paint and finishing on the 2-piece, 17-4 stainless steel head are designed to resist scuffing.
The Wilson Launch Pad irons are available in 4-SW for men and 5-SW for women, in right or left handed options and a choice of a KBS Max Ultralite steel or Project X EvenFlow graphite shaft. They will have an RRP of £600 (5-PW) for steel shafts and £699 for graphite shafts.
