Manufacturers unveil new gear for fall

PING’s Anser driver – the company’s first-ever adjustable model – is a sleek-looking, matte-dark driver with a low-spin, 460cc titanium clubhead. Golfers can tweak their ball trajectory by adjusting the loft plus or minus one-half degree with the included wrench. Its four standard lofts are 8.5, 9.5,10.5 and 12 degrees. $440.

Tour Edge Golf’s Exotics Xrail fairway wood boasts a wide diamond rail, V-shaped sole that glides through grass and helps square the clubface at impact. Heel and toe weight lend stability on mis-hits, while variable face thickness makes all shots feel solid. $180.

Nike Golf’s Lunar Bandon shoes prevent harsh weather from reaching the feet. The shoes are flexible, lightweight and comfortable, and keep feet dry and warm thanks to a booty tongue construction that catches water. Speed lacing with an easy-to-utilize toggle makes the fastening process a breeze. $180.

Adams Golf’s adjustable, aerodynamic Speedline Tech driver features a lightweight titanium body plus a composite wing attached to the outer skirt of the crown. Its unique face design involves vertical and horizontal gear effect that creates improved bulge and roll for optimal ball spin. $450.

Titleist’s titanium 913D2 and 913D3 drivers focus on speed, distance and performance. They feature a face insert with thinner, variable tapered thickness, for more ball speed on off-center hits. This new model retains its predecessors’ glossy black crown, traditional pear shape and simple alignment marks. $449.

Grafalloy’s BiMatrx Tour Prototype driver shaft comes in bright pink, black, neon orange, white, lime green and neon blue. The ultralight graphite shaft body has a steel tip section for distance and control, and allows golfers to boost driver loft by 30 percent with a 20 percent spin rate reduction. $150.
