PRESENTING THE MOST VERSATILE ADJUSTABLE DRIVER EVER DESIGNED…

Four years in the making, the 719MW is the most advanced moveable weight driver designed by Wishon Golf. The basis for the 719MW can be traced back to an early design in the mid-80s by Tom Wishon and Elmore Just – the founder of Louisville Golf Company: the Cure driver was the first original heel-weighted draw-bias driver ever made in the golf industry. Made from laminated maple, it effectively proved that the centre of gravity on a clubhead can be shifted with the heel weight. And when a golfer contacts the ball in an on-centre shot, this causes a slight rotation on the vertical axis, creating in essence, a tilt on the spin axis of the ball: reducing the amount of fade on a shot.  

A later woodhead design in the mid-1990s by Tom Wishon, the AccuCore 50 Driver, would further demonstrate the benefits of heel-weighted drivers, but also most importantly that at least 25-30g was needed in the heel-side to move the COG enough to the point where a centre shot off the face would create a visible draw bias effect on the shot. 

Many modern adjustable weight drivers have a maximum of 20g of moveable weight – this is not enough to move the centre of gravity and create a marked difference for the vast majority of golfers with average clubhead speed.  

So when Wishon began the design process for the 719 moveable weight driver, it was obvious that it would need to have the ability to move at least 30g of additional weight around the head to be able to offer regular golfers a chance to be able to see a change in the shape of their shots. 

And that’s not an easy task (to say the least). 

For a 450cc driver, total weight shouldn’t exceed 202-205g in order to be built to a normal range of swingweights, so to take the additional moveable weights, the body of the head had to be in the realm of 172g – an extremely difficult object to achieve. 

Wishon was able to engineer the 719MW with the help of one of the very best investment cast titanium foundries in the world, and by varying the wall thickness and removing the entire titanium crown, replacing with lightweight carbon composite, we were able to create the objective design for the 719MW. 

 

The 719MW is the ultimate in advanced adjustable driver technology – offering more versatility and multiple fitting options to clubmakers than any other adjustable driver.

The 719MW features an ultralight carbon composite crown to lighten the head structure and lower CG. 

Additionally, the 719MW includes a Custom Hosel Sleeve which enables a wide range in custom lie and face angle specifications and can also be used to offer diffferent lofts when the golfer does not need a custom lie or face angle – only when the driver is held in the square face position at address. 

Designed with four separate weight cavity positions, the 719MW has the ability to accept seven different weights – 2g, 4g, 6g, 8g, 10g, 20g, 30g. 

+ Place 20g or 30g to either heel or toe position for draw or fade bias OR

+ Place 20g or 30g to either forward or rear position for higher or lower ball flight OR

+ Split 10g or 20g weights in the toe and heel positions to increase head MOI

+ Place other weights in remaining sole cavities to adjust finished weight for fine tuning swingweight/club MOI on a very wide range of finished club length options

CUSTOM HOSEL SLEEVE

The 719MW’s Custom Hosel Sleeve offers a wide range in custom lie and face angle specifications. The Custom Hosel Sleeve can also be used to offer different lofts when the golfer does not need a custom lie or face angle, but only when the driver is held in the square face position at address.

  With the driver SOLED in the address position, the custom hosel sleeve will allow a change in face angle from 2° closed to 2° open or lie position from 58° to 60.5°.

  By holding the club with the face square to the target in the address position, the hosel sleeve will allow a change in loft of the 9° model from 7.5° to 11°. For the 11° model, by holding the club with the face square to the target in the address position, the hosel sleeve will allow a change in loft from 9.5° to 13°. Full instructions can be found at the link on the right and will also be included with each 719MW driver when purchased.

The following charts reveal the change in the lie, face angle and loft specs for each of the 8 sleeve positions for the 9° and 11° models. The change in lie and face angle is in relation to the measured lie and face angle of each 719MW head, when it is measured traditionally with the hosel sleeve in the N position.

(Hosel sleeve designations: N= Neutral; C=Closed; U=Upright; O=Open)

  • All 719MW Drivers are supplied with a wrench, custom hosel adaptor and ferrule included. All components are also available to purchase individually.
  • All weight pieces available and sold separately in: 2g, 4g, 6g, 8g, 10g, 20g, 30g.
  • Also available is the Wishon 360 Grip, made for matching with the 719MW.

Tom, question about adding weights to the head of the 719. Is their a limit as to the weights you can add to the head. e.g. a 30gm in the rear and a 20 in the heel and 5gm in the front and toe ports.

GEOFF The 719 head with no weights has a spec weight of 170g. If you added 55g to that, the head at 225g would likely be too head heavy to be functional as a golf club. The swingweight would be too high. How much head weight to use is first and foremost dictated by what swing weight feels best to you, not too head heavy and not too head light, based on the length, the shaft weight, the grip weight and what YOU as a player perceive to be too head heavy or too head light. For example, if you… Read more »

Hello Tom
Just saw your video on the new driver 719MV.
A question, when you put 30 gram to either toe or heel and then place a 2 gram opposite, i agree the will change the center of gravity, but how about smashfactor, will smashfactor be 1,50 at the center of gravity or the center of the face?

Lasse The smash factor would be at its highest for impacts in the center of the face. This is because the center of the face is where the highest amount of face flexing can happen. With EVERY driver that is fully hollow with no support behind the face, any time you hit the ball off center the face is not able to flex as much as the impact on center. Now with a good variable thickness face, which the 719 does have, impacts that are as much as 1/2″ to 3/4″ off center still can have a 1.50 smash factor… Read more »

I would like to reply to newest letter from Paul. Paul I’m 70 years old and my swing speed is not what it once was. Yet, I’m hitting the 719 further and higher than my 919. Now I will say the face is set “ neutral” ( which allows me to concentrate on the height of my ball) I have 30 grams of weight in the rear of the club. If you can set at neutral ( no draw or fade bias) it’s a longer driver then 919. By the way my 919 driver is 13.5 loft.

PAUL There are no “rules” per se when you add mass to the 719 head for the tip trimming of the shaft. The clubmaker has to use his best judgment for whether to increase the tip trim when increasing the swingweight (or MOI) of the driver based on what will perform the best and FEEL THE BEST to the golfer in the finished club. These things can be two separate elements in a fitting to assess whether a normal tip trim of a shaft would end up too soft or too stiff or just right for the golfer, AND THEN,… Read more »

Reply to  Ben P

BEN Regardless if we are talking about scorelines on wedges, irons, hybrids, woods or drivers, the only function of scorelines is to channel moisture away from the surface impact between the surface of the ball and the clubface. Spin is generated by the friction of the non lined surfaces of the face that come in contact with the surface of the ball at impact. This is precisely why milled face wedges spin the ball more than non milled face wedges. The milling creates a higher coefficient of friction that can “grab” the surface of the ball more aggressively. Most drivers… Read more »

Hello Tom
I have been thinking about smash factor and swing speed. As I understand the max sf can be 1,50. But does it go for any club head speed, I mean if your club head speed is 80 m/h will the smash factor be 1,50 if you hit it in the CG as it goes for a swing speed of 110m/h ??

Admin

Yes, as long as the driver head has a COR of 0.830 and the shot is hit in the center of the face, and the impact is recorded by a very accurate launch monitor, the smash factor will be 1.50 regardless of the clubhead speed.

Tom, thanks. I was looking at playing this driver (11 degrees) at 45″ with a 57 gram shaft and 53 gram grip and using a 25g weight in the heel and 2 grams each in the other cavities and felt this would give sufficent fade reduction but if necessary I could adjust face angle as needed. The swing weight at 45″ would be very close to my current driver.

Hi Tom,

Are there any fitting specs that can help a golfer to reduce his tendency to swing over-the-top?

Speaking of golf swing faults, do you have any book recommendations about golf swing theory, something that is data/physics-based?

MARC There are no fitting specs that on their own can make you reduce the tendency to swing over the top. However, there are fitting specs that make it much harder to re train your swing to swing less over the top. The biggest one is driver and fwy wood length. If the driver and the woods are too long for the golfer’s ability to control the club, that longer length will accentuate an over the top swing and make it worse. Now at the same time, playing with a shorter length driver and woods is not going to automatically… Read more »

JIM No, the driver and fwy woods in a totally MOI matched bag will typically be around 75 g-cm2 higher in MOI than the irons. The reason for this is because the woods and driver as a group are a big jump longer in length than your longest iron. In a std set of 1, 3, 5 woods and 3-PW irons, the length of the 5w is typically 2 to 3″ longer than the 3 iron. In MOI the length is a squared property which means that the length is much more important for determining MOI than the weight. So… Read more »

Hey Tom,

With the variable weights, could this driver be 40-41″ long and be the same swing weight as the one length fairway woods? – basically trying to make a one length woods set
If that is possible, would the gapping be enough to justify the idea?

Trent Yes, with all the different weight options, you can build the 719 driver to 40-41″ length and reach a normal swingweight. That is definitely possible. The question though is why you would want to do that, because at that short of a length, without question you will be dropping your clubhead speed a significant amount and from that, losing distance. The only reason I can see to do a driver that short is if the player has severe problems with either accuracy or on center hit consistency. Even then, having the driver at say, 42 or 43″ should help… Read more »

Looking at your Lie, Loft and face angle chart and taking the C/U Hosel Sleeve Position as an example the reason for the closed face angle being offset by holding the face square in the address position is simply logic, however, is there a simple explanation as to why the lie wouldn’t remain at 2.0 upright.

Keep in mind that the shaft is always at some angle in the sleeve, in the hosel bore. Even at the N position there is some angle of the shaft into the sleeve and bore. So no matter if you rotate the head with your hands or with an adjustment of the hosel sleeve, the angle of the shaft is going to change so the lie will have to change too,a little bit.

Hi Tom,

You mentioned that the production of the 719 has resulted in very tight tolerances which is a great thing. I was wondering if this could be hand selected for a lie angle of 57 degrees in the neutral position? I am aware that lie angle is less important for a driver however some clients truly require a flatter lie angle in the driver.

I just switched from your 519 with a 10.5 degree loft to your new 719 with a 9 degree loft. I found myself struggling at 9 degrees so I adjusted to the “C” position to get to 11.25 degrees. This puts the club in a closed position, which actually increased my misses (I don’t ever slice my drive, I’m the complete opposite).

Your expertise and explanation of moving the cg of the head with the weighting system especially using the 30 gram weight will be a benefit to all the golfers.

On the 719 sleeve there are positions C for closed face angle and O for open face angle. These make the head sit either closed or open when you sole the head in the address position. They are a better way to reduce a slice/fade or reduce a hook/draw because they are a degree for degree change in the orientation of the face at impact when the golfer either… Read more »

Ben Without question that would be the 719MW driver. The weight of the 719 head with NO SCREWS is 170grams.

The usual head weight for a finished, assembled driver is going to be between 192 and 210 grams, depending on the length the club is made and depending on the weight of the shaft and grip used on the club. Therefore there would be anywhere between 22g and 40g added to the head by using the different weights that all… Read more »
