The V5 LX driver is an updated version of the popular V5. The body is made with a super-dense yet light and highly rigid Titanium shell. "Maximum smash factor is our focus with this driver, and I can honestly say that the new V5 LX is the highest smash factor driver we've ever created", says Dr. Jim Yeh founder and chief designer of Alpha Golf.
The V5 LX utilizes Alpha's signature TiCN coated black face along with a traditional pear-shaped body. Moveable weight ports allow for center of gravity (COG) customization which helps players optimize their desired trajectory.
A month before the driver was officially introduced the V5 LX had already made its mark taking the Senior Golf Tours by storm. In two back to back events, PGA Champions Tour player Steve Thomas used the V5 LX to capture the lead at the Florida Senior Golf Tour in Lakeland, Florida as well as a second place finish at American Senior Golf Tour in Maricupa, Arizona.
Known for being the "Longest Driver on the Champions Tour", Thomas drove more than 400 yards at each event to capture his top finishes. "The driver did it for me!" said Thomas when asked how the V5 LX performed on the tee. "I've tried every driver out there, and I have never felt so much power and speed than I have with this Alpha V5 LX".
