Get Fit then Shoot Your Age!

March 18th, 2024

If you want to shoot your age, maybe a good club fitting and the right clubs will help!  That has happened to many of our customers but the most recent happened early in 2024.  Tom H. came in for an iron fitting as his irons were a little old and he needed to fill the gaps above his long irons.  We fit him into a new Callaway AI Smoke 4 hybrid and TaylorMade Qi 10 irons with a little bit firmer shaft and properly matched gapping between his irons and hybrid.  Now, Tom is a 10 handicap but plays a lot of golf.  He also is 77 years old!  So when we got the call about his new clubs, we were thrilled for him: “I had to call and tell you how much I love the new clubs.  The consistency and accuracy is amazing!  I shot two over par yesterday and one over par today!  The hybrid is the perfect distance that I was looking for.  Thank you for a great job fitting this new set for me!” Tom H., Colorado Love it when our customers shoot their age!  I am hoping I can live long enough to do that!!...

November 6th, 2023

Continuing their innovation and growth into a powerhouse in professional golf, Tour Edge Exotics 2023 Wingman Wedges pack impressive feel into a compact face design. The 2023 Wingman Wedges are packed with new technology and design, inspired by Tour Legend Bernhard Langer.

Callaway 2024 APEX Irons Review

November 6th, 2023

We just completed our Callaway 2024 APEX Irons review, and we know why these irons are so popular. Continuing with tradition, the 2024 APEX Pro, CB and MB irons deliver the great feel of Callaway forging, lower CG design and aggressive lofts. The design helps players boost distance; and the new Dynamic Sole design further improves turf interaction. Read more about the Callaway 2024 Apex Series. Methodology: Our testing was conducted with Trackman in the temperature controlled D’Lance Indoor Facility at 5280 feet and 72 degrees. Club head speed during testing was 80MPH +/- 1 MPH. And, we used the same shaft (the AXIOM 105X) across all three models – APEX PRO, CB and MB. Notably, the APEX PRO 6-iron we used for testing has 1° less loft (29° vs. 30°), and the distance gain was obvious (+4 yards on average). Testing summary: The look and feel of the APEX Pro fits a wide range of players. And surprisingly, despite being a muscle-back blade, the MB plays incredibly well. While the MB has a little bit firmer feel, it is equally as forgiving as the CB with an identical look at setup. It’s obvious why so many of our APEX... Read More

Titleist 2023 T-Series Irons Review

October 30th, 2023

We finally completed our Titleist 2023 T-Series Irons review and wow we’re impressed. The Titleist T-Series Irons pack technology focused on look, sound and feel. Read more on the technology behind the T-Series including lower CG, precision forging and more. Bottom line, the playability and workability of these irons is impressive. Methodology: Our testing normalizes our results using Trackman in the temperature controlled D’Lance Indoor Facility at 5280 feet and 72 degrees. We further maintain the same shaft across multiple heads, optimal for testing. Notably, there are loft differences between 6-iron models, and we do not change lofts in our testing. See Titleist T-Series specs for standard lofts. Short answer, the Titleist T-Series irons are ripe for creating combo iron sets. While the top line of the T200 is slightly wider than the T150, and T150 wider than the T100, the overall head size is nearly identical. Whereas the T350 is a noticeably larger head, wider top line and has more offset. The T350 is a high-performing, forged game improvement iron that mid- to high-handicap players should consider.

Free Flex Woods Shafts – Now Available

October 16th, 2023

Free Flex Woods Shafts challenge the conventional notion that you can’t have both – more control and more distance. Traditionally, shaft manufacturers and some fitters choose a stiffer shaft to reduce shot dispersion. Or vice versa, the choice is made for distance over accuracy. At D’Lance Golf, our fitting expertise overcomes this traditional notion in every club we build. However, the new Free Flex wood shafts provide a new arrow for the bow. Learn more about Free Flex shafts. Free Flex Technology shafts are structurally engineered to account for and effectively balance four forces that act upon the shaft. These four forces are torque, bend force during the swing, warping moment, and bending torsional moment. Lighter shafts can consequently be played even for faster swing speeds. With torque and flex now functionally independent of shaft weight, a player can choose a lighter shaft without sacrificing accuracy. These shafts actually react according to swing speeds to provide incredible performance. For example, a super light (38g) and flexible shaft (170cpm) can have a torque as low as 2.0 (stronger than X+ stiff tour shaft). Driver Shafts Special 45 Free Flex Driver Shafts.  These shafts weigh 45-48 grams, ideal for club head speeds... Read More

TPT Nitro Range Driver Shafts – Now Available

October 9th, 2023

TPT Nitro Range Driver shafts push the limits of driver shafts, providing more power and greater precision. TPT creates every shaft with their unique winding process to increase power and manage torque. This allows players to use lighter shafts; and lighter shafts mean faster speed. TPT’s unique construction also results in greater distance without sacrificing accuracy. Comparing the Nitro Range Driver shaft to Power Range shafts, Nitro features -9% less torque and is -11% lighter. It’s no wonder that TPT shafts are a 2-time PLDA (Professional Long Driver Association) World Champion. With a properly fit TPT shaft, golfers contact the sweet spot more often. And by matching to an optimal bend profile, golfers benefit from faster swing speeds, higher ball speeds and consistent impact. For example, take a traditional driver shaft with a swing weight of D3 and 70g weight. A similar TPT shaft with weight of 60g and a swing weight of D5 may be the optimal fit because the balance point is 1.5-2.0 inches higher in the shaft. Learn more at TPTGolf.com. Nitro Range Driver Shafts – Specifications TPT is the only driver and fairway wood shaft manufacturer today that can say their shaft always produces the same... Read More
