Hi Tom, Thank you for the great job you are doing around golf products! I am struggling to find a driver that goes farther than my 3 wood. I’ve tried many products in golf shops, spending thought time to make people crazy about that issue 🙂 I swing my 3W around 95/100mph, carry 210/220 meters, very good smash factor. Hesitating between regular or stiff. And very much struggling to carry more than 230 meters with a driver. Question 1 would be do you see any improvement to get that extra yardage? Question 2 would be which of your driver would… Read more »

Purchased two 919 THI at 11 deg. Nice work Tom. I hit about 250 on a decent hit. Maybe the most forgiving of the big headed drivers. Perhaps I hit a little high but, still has a good roll out. Also purchased a 18 deg 775 HS hybrid. That club is amazing, I’ve never seen such roll out. Well over 220. I love the technical side of assembling a club for the individual and getting it just perfect.

Hi Tom mike again I’m making a driver for a next door neighbor I play with 6-10 times a year.So Tom my man this one got to work or I’m in trouble.lol!He’s 81 has bad arthritis effecting his flexibility.He has an older ping G10 driver 10.5 degrees reg.

The 919THI head weighs 202g and can accommodate 9g more in the weight bore. Could additional weight be added as a tip weight to allow a shorter length assembly? I am a senior with a slow swing weight and my other Wishon clubs are around C5. Would the 730cl driver be a better choice than the 15 degree 919THI?

Hi Tom,

How are you doing? Your clubs look great. Would you be able to bend the 919THI driver so that the leading edge of the hosel is in-line with the leading edge of the face? Thanks!

Tom, I played your ass to S2S shaft in a driver once or twice over the years. I went ahead and ordered the 77 ones this morning and I also ordered the S2 S black graphite iron shaft with them. With my seven iron swing speed being 90 to 92 miles an hour, should I tip these shafts? I am a relatively strong person, but my transition at the top is very smooth. Even slower than Hideki Matsuyama. I come to a complete pause at the top of my swing before I start down. My hands also reach my right… Read more »

Tom, thank you so much for your responsiveness on this page. I am currently playing your EQ one iron set, but was considering going back to a conventional length set of irons. I’ve played both the sterling version and the EQ version and then quite happy with both, but I can’t say that I’ve seen much overall game improvement. Granted, I am a four handicap already, but really trying to get to the next level or scratch. Even at my current handicap, I know enough about my swing to know I certainly don’t always hit the dead center of the… Read more »

Thanks Tom. That is very helpful. I will look at the 565s. I just thought the extra apparent forgiveness of the 771s would always be a plus in this difficult game. 🙂 Would you say the off center hit performance on the EQs is better – equal – or less than the 565s and 771s? Its seems like most of what you are describing are aesthetic and not necessarily performance driven. With that said, I can certainly overcome a gapping issue with loft and lie but feel, consistancy and confidence are what I am chasing. That and scratch!

Hi Tom,

Should the driver be the same length as woods for a true one length setup? I’m confused how that would play, given that woods play off the ground with left of centered ball placement, and drivers play off left heel while beeing teed up. How does that work with same length clubs?

Hello Tom! I love the new design of the 919 THI. I have built a “Mini bomber” at 43.5″ with a 11 deg head and Aerotech Claymore MX 60 F5 shaft. One thing I noticed is that it has a more tingy sound at imapct than the old head. This is my average numbers from indoor (Trackman). — Club Speed: 107.6 mph. AoA: 2.5 up. Ball Speed: 161 mph. Smash: 1.50. Launch Ang: 12.1 deg. Spin rate: 2246 rpm. Height: 102 ft. Carry: 271 yards Total: 295.5 yards (Longest outdoor: 319 yards). I’m very happy with the build. Kind regards… Read more »

Haha. With a “normal length” driver (45.5″) I have a clubhead speed at 115 mph. But my misses will be severe compared to this mini bomber.

I allways has been more successful with mini drivers. Had A Aeroburner Mini driver at 12 deg and 43,5″ that I could hit long and put the ball in play.

Dear Tom, 
after 12+ years I am assessing to get some new gear. I was fitted by Mike McFadden in 2011 and have amongst others the 919THI (irons 560 MC, FW 929HS and hybrids 775 HS). On the internet, I found some pictures of the stunning design of the 719MW Driver. Could you indicate when the design will be available?

Thank you Tom for taking the time for your comprehensive answer. Mike is really outstanding. At the beginning, Mike didn’t want to get me a fitting and didn’t want to sell me any clubs. He said “you have got no Golf swing, you should work on this first”. But as I learned so much about golf and a good golf swing during our first meeting, I decided to become his student. So for about a year, I regularly drove from Stuttgart to Jakobsberg (2.5 hours!) to take lessons with Mike and he became my Pro. And after the third lesson… Read more »

Thank you for your comprehensive answer re the 585. I will give them I try. I did not know that Mauricio is now running Mike’s former business. I know Mauricio as he received his PGA formation by the time I was at Jakobsberg with Mike in 2011.

All the best for you – and I hope for all of us, there a still some great designs from you to come!

Very warm regards from Stuttgart

In assembling an MOI matched set of clubs, do you recommend that the driver and fairway woods have the same MOI as the irons, or should it be different?

Thanks for your detailed response. One other question I have is how close in g-cm2 do the clubs need to be to be considered matched? What would the range in gm-cm2 be where one could call the clubs matched?

The new 2023 hybrids and fairways looks great. Can’t wait to test them out!
I also read there is a new 919 and 719 driver on the way. I’m playing the current 919 so I was curious how the new drivers differ in design and performance. Always nice to hear this from the brain behind the product!

And the statement above shows once again why Wishon is THE brand to go to !! Other companies would wax lyrical about how their new carbon, speed slot, jailbreak, adjustable perimeter weighting etc etc technology will add MILES to your drives (which of course, is all just marketing hype). Tom Wishon tells it as it is, fundamentally a cosmetic upgrade to a driver that is already, arguably, the best on the market bar none. If you are thinking about getting custom fit, stop thinking, find your nearest Wishon approved club fitter and make the call. I have gamed 919THI, 365… Read more »

Tom, I’m going to start working with Ed Ellis in a few days to custom fit driver for my bag. I have Wishon single length clubs from lob wedge to 4 wood now and find them key to my game. I’ve saved driver for last. I’m wondering if recent experience with my current TaylorMade Burner 10-degree driver and my Wishon 4 wood is helping me understand your premise about driver loft for senior players like me. My swing speed with driver is about 85-90, sometimes a bit more. I can reach 200-205 yards with my driver choked down to 43″.… Read more »

Thanks for the explanation, Tom. I hit a couple practice drives this evening ending my short game practice. I paid attention to the ball flight and its apex. I topped out at about 65 feet. Carry distance was 200 and 208 yards. I’ll be curious what Ed and I figure out about my angle of attack. It’s going to be fun. Thanks again.

Hey Tom, I’ve been using an early model (~2013) 919THI w/SP700 face for quite a while now. I’ve always been a huge fan of drivers with SP700 faces, I’m apparently one of the few golfers who can notice an appreciable difference compared to materials like 6-4 or even 15-3-3-3. Almost every driver that I’ve ever truly loved over the years, has turned out to have an SP700 face (which I often didn’t know before I fell in love with it). I’ll be honest, I wasn’t a fan of the feel/sound of the 6-4 face that the 919THI switched to back… Read more »

I know the first gen with the blue crown and yellow half-moon shape had an SP700 face, and that one is easily distinguishable because it looks different. But didn’t the 2nd gen also have an SP700 face for a little while? I thought the change to 6-4 happened sometime around 2015, but the 2nd gen redesign happened in around 2011. So wouldn’t any 2nd gen head from 2011-2015 have an SP700 face? But even so, you’re saying there would be no way to tell since the heads are cosmetically identical after the 6-4 face material change?

Reply to  Tom Wishon

I wanted to post a follow-up comment on this, as I think I’ve identified a way to distinguish the SP700 heads to the newer 6-4 faced heads. When the 919 was first redesigned in 2011, it kept the SP700 face as well as the short hosel. Then when it was updated again in 2015 with the longer hosel, I believe that’s when the face material was changed as well. So, correct me if I’m wrong, but shouldn’t that mean any head which has the shorter hosel should also have the SP700 face? Based on my research, with the help of… Read more »

Actually, a correction to my last comment. It looks like the bendable hosel was added in late 2013, which is apparently when you also created new plasma-welding tooling dies. At that same time, the verbiage “919THI face forged from SP700 titanium” was removed from the bullet points on the product page, although in the product images which show all of the detailed specs it still said “Face Material: SP700 Titanium”. That remained until July 2016 when it was changed to “Face Material: 6-4 Titanium”. Is it likely that the SP700 face was changed at the same time the longer hosel… Read more »

Hi Tom, I’m looking to put my 919 back into play after a while not using it (sorry!!) due to me accidentally breaking the shaft while taking my clubs out the car. It originally had the S2S Black in 85g but since then I’ve had some back issues so reckon the 85g may be a bit heavy for me now. I’ve been using a 60g Kuro Kage shaft in my spare TM driver (which I really like). . What I’d like to know is, do I just go straight to the 65g S2S Black or is there something closer to… Read more »

Hi Tom, Has there ever been a comparison by anyone of the 919THI to the latest and greatest from the big name brands? Wondering how a custom fit 919THI would stack up on the Trackman or GC quad launch monitors vs the new Calloway Paradym, Taylormade Stealth, Ping G430 or Cobra Aerojet etc.? Any chance anyone could do a club review on the new 719MV? I remember watching a Rick Shiels video a couple years ago do a review of the Sterling Irons. He seemed pretty impressed but didn’t like the lower ball flight of the 4 and 5 iron.… Read more »

Thanks for the great reply Tom. I’ll definitely go to AGCP to see what feedback they can provide. Love your clubs! Just wanted to be able to point guys looking for new clubs in a direction where they can see the data supporting the benefits of the performance the Wishon line provides in comparison to what’s out there.

Hi Tom What I expected you to say was something along these lines. I wonder if what I’m about to say is valid? There are a finite number of factors that can affect how far a driver can hit the ball, if you are talking about the head itself. These are spring effect (CoR), how much it twists (moi) and head volume (cc). Possibly also off centre hit forgiveness Since about 2006 there have been limits on these elements and all drivers made since around or soon after this time are as close to these limits as you can realistically… Read more »

Hey Dave, I have a guy that likes to take his 919 into the shops to test against the latest releases, his club has better ball speeds than most, never beaten, matched occasionally. His latest report was “919THI beats TSR3” I get that kind of feedback often.

Tom the folks At Diamond International and I am sure you have just released fantastic pictures and specs of the new 719MW Driver. I have a few questions for the head. Obviously adjustable on the hosel and a weighting system to help the draw, the fade, and center of gravity either rearward or forward. Your adjustable sleeve .. Will you have your own mechanism or will you use an adaptation of let’s say a Taylormade type or something like the Titleist? What will the head weight for the 719MW be before adding the weights? (raw weight 173 grams or so?)… Read more »

Tom first I want to thank you for your detailed answer. I will buy this driver, but I would also point out that the 919THI Driver with a bendable hosel plus the fact that you can hand select for loft still makes this a more than viable option. I am looking forward to the new wedges. Thanks Tom, Merry Christmas and a healthy New Year!
