Callaway Big Bertha V Series Driver Is Here!

September 15th, 2014

This driver is all about creating speed which will result in more distance!  The aerodynamic design of this head along with its lighter weight design will help you create more clubhead speed.  In some tests, this driver created up to 2 mph more clubhead speed which is 5-7 more yards distance.  Doesn’t seem like much but that could get you a half club closer to the green!  Of course, our job is to help you select the proper shaft weight, flex and tip profile to maximize your performance.

Big Win for Billy Horschel at the Fed-Ex Cup

September 15th, 2014

Back-to-Back wins at the BMW championship and Coca-Cola championship is a pretty sweet way to end the season, and put a few million in the bank!  And, Billy nearly won the week before the BMW!  Just shows that when you get on a roll, your confidence goes up and you can play in a great zone!  While Billy had a pretty solid bag of PING clubs, he played an Aldila Rogue 60X in his driver and OBAN Kiyoshi Black 75 shafts in his 3 and 5 wood.  These shafts are all low-launch, low-spin and have a very firm feel.  The G30 9 degree driver (set to 10.5) proved to be a solid performer for the last two weeks.  Come in and we will show you what new shafts we have to offer may fit YOU in the new G30 line-up.  It’s all about creating confidence with your clubs.

GEARS Golf Motion Sensing System – Better Information for Shaft Fitting

September 15th, 2014

Thanks to the 20 testers that came in and spent some time with us on the new GEARS Golf motion sensing system.  These testers hit a driver with four different shafts and the results were recorded not only with the GEARS system but with Trackman.  Based on preliminary results, this system will help us do a better job with the initial shaft fitting.    Our fittings will become faster and more dialed-in to the correct shaft in the first round of live testing.  Because we know in more detail HOW the golfer loads the shaft and WHEN the release point is in the swing, we can pick shafts that will give a tighter impact area on the face (called a Face Map).  We can also determine the impact of the shaft stiffness, tip stiffness and mid section stiffness on Attack Angle (higher or lower launch) and Face Angle (dispersion).  We will be publishing the results in the next 30 days or so after we have completed our analysis of the test data.

GEARS Golf Motion Measurement System Enhances Our Shaft Fitting System!

September 4th, 2014

How do we know how to predict which shaft is right for you? It’s all in our extensive player and shaft testing. We are now taking it to the next level with the GEARS high speed camera motion measurement system. Measures shaft deflection, shaft droop, grip speed, grip rotation, and probably 20 more stats that will help us make even better shaft recommendations based upon YOUR swing. http://www.gearsgolf.com/ We are testing several of our previous customers and fine tuning the shaft fitting process with this new information.

Ignacio Arcaya Wins Boys RMJGT 13-14 Age Group in Playoff

Ignacio is an awesome young man and came to visit us in early August.  We built him a new set of blended Mizuno clubs with SteelFiber shafts as he has outgrown his US Kids set.  Well, who would have expected him to win his first Rocky Mountain Junior Golf Tour event at the Broadmoor in a playoff?  Ignacio also is Venezuela’s representative to the Junior Latin American Golf team.  Good luck, Ignacio, when you had back to Caracas next week.  See you next year so we can tweak your set as part of our Lifetime Fitting program.  Check out his scorecard…

KBS Adds C-Taper Lite Parallel Shaft to its Line

August 20th, 2014

For us club builders, the addition of a lighter weight C-Taper shaft in parallel tip is awesome news.  Building with parallel tip shafts gives us more flexibility in controlling flex and launch versus using taper shafts and either hard or soft stepping.  The problem really comes when building wedges with taper shafts as KBS makes only one shaft, a 9/PW for all clubs from 9i, PW, GW, SW, and LW.  Because the SW and LW in most clubs is significantly heavier than the PW and GW, controlling flex and swingweight is an issue with discrete length taper tip shafts.  That problem, for the most part, goes away with these new parallel tip shafts.  We like the C-Taper Lite for a player that needs a lighter weight shaft (roughly 10 gr. lighter) or the player that needs extra length but wants to keep the total club weight down.  Next step is to test them against their taper-tip brothers to see how they stack up in terms of launch and spin.  See the technical specs here…
