A regular modern driver weighs about 320g. According to Ms. Hastings, spokesperson for InterloperGolf, using the innovative thin crown technology helps the XF Leggera shed 10 grams from the top of the crown. Engineering ensures the center of gravity is in the right place to create those monstrous drives. By pairing the XF Leggera with a lightweight shaft and a lightweight grip, the total weight is reduced to around 275 grams. That is a big difference. The result is a driver that produces a faster swing speed that generally translates to longer drives. There is a reason we call it the longer driver of the year.
According to Ms. Hastings, lighter shafts have been available for a few years but the heads were still the same weight making them a bit unwieldy when paired together. A lighter head alleviates that problem. The introduction of light grips from several manufacturers helps bring down the total weight even further.
Many golfers will opt for a longer shaft further helping with distance as per Ms. Hastings. Most modern drivers are 44" to 45" in length. The lighter weight encourages golfers to add an extra inch to their shaft without compromising control. It opens up quite a few options and possibilities and those who like to tinker and tweak their clubs are going to have a jolly good time improving their distance off the tee.
