Wilson Staff Launch Pad
15° 3-wood; 18° 5-wood
Our take: Even for skilled golfers, hitting fairways woods can be a handful. Wilson’s Launch Pad line helps simplify the task. Our testers reported that the clubs made it easier to get shots from the short grass airborne, while their offset hosels and other draw-promoting features minimized weak flares to the right. “Feels fast,” one respondent remarked. “High launching, said another, who described the performance as “surprisingly good.”

The details: To fix your slice, you could change your swing. But a simpler way to do it to change your clubs. That’s the thinking behind Launch Pad, a player-improvement line with a battery of slice-combatting characteristics. Along with an offset hosel and heel-biased weighting, the clubs benefit from a face design of variable thickness that expands the sweet spot, turning out greater ball speeds and straighter shots.
