JAILBREAK EFFECT
Combined power of Jailbreak Technology and X-Face VFT Technology promotes high ball speed and long distance.

The large Triaxial Carbon composite crown surface area and new high-MOI shape with larger address footprint combine to increase stability and forgiveness.

BOEING AERO PACKAGE
We worked with Boeing to improve Speed Step technology by redefining the geometry of the leading edge to improve airflow to promote faster head speed.

PREMIUM SHAFT SELECTION AT MULTIPLE WEIGHTS
Choose from 40g, 50g, 60g and 70g shaft weights by Aldila and Project X.

JAILBREAK TECHNOLOGY AND FACE CUP FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A FAIRWAY WOOD
Jailbreak Technology and Face Cup work together (for the first time) to promote fast ball speed across a large part of the face for consistently long distance.
