Wilson Staff Triton Driver
Club Tested: Triton Driver Shaft: Aldila Rogue Silver 60; Flex: Stiff; Loft: 9°; Stock sole plate and weight settings
Winner of the Golf Channel’s reality show Driver vs. Driver, Eric Sillies design, the Wilson Staff Triton driver, offers complete customization from the world’s most adjustable multi-piece driver. Movable weight technology incorporates two interchangeable sole plates and 5 weights that can be configured in 18 different combinations. Players can adjust for launch angle, spin rate, and a draw or fade bias. Swing active technology is purposefully designed to be a few millimeters narrower than a golf ball, which will help players align the ball with the club face and the club face with the target.
Who’s It For?
The Wilson Staff Triton driver is for players of all abilities. Players who like to tinker and dial in their loft, ball flight and spin rates will especially want to check out this driver.
I was glad to see Eric win Driver vs Driver and was excited to test his driver design. The swing action technology is quite different and gives an appearance of a slightly hooked face. A lot of drivers have the same hooked face, but the large silver alignment aid seemed to enhance that look even more. However, much to my surprise, I tended to miss right with the Triton.
While impact produced a bit of a twang sound, the feel of the Triton is really good. The 9-degree head produced a slightly higher ball flight, but it never ballooned on me. I just hit the driver in the stock settings, but I’m sure if I dialed this driver in I would be able to get a ball flight that fits my eye. Definitely an interesting driver, and worth a test drive.
