Adidas tour360 x Footwear Collection

Published

on

The next generation Tour360 is here.

Adidas Golf announced the release of its tour360 x footwear collection, which includes the tour360 x BOA that has an adjustable dial on the tongue. While it’s not the first golf shoe ever to have an adjustability feature, the Boa IP-1 dial, also called a Boa Closure System, will allow golfers to customize how the shoe fits for maximum comfort.

The “x” in tour360 “x” signifies the nine spikes arranged in an X-pattern on the outsole. Th re-engineered thintech TPU outsole, made with the company’s familiar CenTraXion technology, was also sculpted to reduce weight but increase flexibility and stability.

As expected, the tour360 x collection incorporated adidas’ 360WRAP technology for maximum performance and comfort. Other technologies include a microfiber leather upper to reduce weight without sacrificing aesthetics, climaproof in the upper to keep your feet dry in wet conditions and EVA foam in the mid-sole to increase comfort.

The tour360 x will be available starting Nov. 1 in six colorways, then in three additional colorways on Feb. 1, 2015, both with an MSRP of $140. The tour360 x BOA, which will be available in two colorways starting Dec. 1, will carry an MSRP of $180.

    Looking at a pair of these but have had the same issue with the inner heel with my last 2 pairs of 360’s. How’s the heel in these ones? Considering FJ DNA? Thoughts?

    Glad to hear others had problems with the inner heel. I thought it was just my fat feet.

    My old tour 360’s are the most comfortable golf shoe I’ve ever owned. Like others I agree that these look good and hoping for a little better durability on the inside…

    Also went through a pair of 360 series in 8 rounds because of inner heal wear. Hopefully its improved.

    Adidas has finally realized that people have larger and wider feet. And I love their shoes, but finally with this past year the toe boxes are wider. And I like this “traditional” yet athletic looking shoe.

    Microfiber leather. Plastic in other words.

      No, not plastic. I’m in the leather business. Microfiber leather is synthetic to be sure, but there are different grades of it, just like in traditional leather products. They probably had to balance out cost and quality and chose something that was water resistant, yet somewhat breathable. But no, not plastic.

    I wore the 360 series for quite a while, but got fed up with the inner heels wearing out after 20 games.

    I bought pair of spiked Addicross and amlost immediately bought to other colours.

    These look like a bit of a cross between them.

      Agreed Martin. I have never had to change spikes in them because the inner heal wears out quicker.

GolfWRX Spotlight: TaylorMade SIM Max Rescue review

Published

on

TaylorMade on the tech features of the TaylorMade SIM Max Rescue

  • V Steel Sole design

    The v-shaped sole allows for clean turf interaction and provides additional versatility when playing from tight or difficult lies

  • Twist Face

    Uses corrective face angles designed to overcome inherent golfer tendencies on mis-hits and to produce straighter shots

  • Thru-Slot Speed Pocket

    Our breakthrough Thru-Slot Speed Pocket technology delivers enhanced sole flexibility to create additional ball speed as well as improved forgiveness on low-face mis-hits

  • C300 Ultra-Strong Steel Face

    High-strength C300 steel allows for a stronger, faster face engineered for explosive speed performance *Only SIM Max Fairway and Rescue

How it looks: TaylorMade SIM Max Rescue

I’ll be honest here: I hate hybrids. They look goofy and I hit em high and left 101 percent of the time. However, every once in a while I’ll find one that I can warm up to. It’s happened twice in the last five years: PXG Gen 2 and SIM Max. I’m not sure what it is exactly, but this hybrid looks like it’s gonna get into the turf and I’m actually gonna hit a good shot. The color scheme is clean and simple. The lines are sleek and not boxy, which is always a bonus. Sometimes hybrids look like a brick on a stick to me. This one does not.

How it feels: TaylorMade SIM Max hybrid

This is where I got really intrigued: the feel. It’s solid. Really solid. Now, I must say that TM didn’t reinvent the wheel with this thing, but the SIM Max is just a simple solid hybrid that is easy to hit and gets through the turf. The V Steel helps that I reckon. It has a nice heavy hit which is good since this is supposed to transition from woods to irons.

Overall: TaylorMade SIM Max Rescue

It’s a winner. Not hybrid of the century or anything, but a club that could stay in the bag for a while and produce solid results. Look, we have 14 slots to play and they all have a job to do. You cannot go wrong by giving this one a slot in the starting lineup!

What GolfWRXers have spent more money on – Drivers vs Putters

Published

on

In our forums, WRXer ‘2down’ has got our members talking about their purchase history and whether drivers or putters have taken more of their money. For ‘2down’ the answer is putters, who has a respectable seven flat-sticks sitting around his home, and our members divulge their history with drivers slightly edging it so far.

  • getitdaily: “Putters, but I change drivers more frequently…how does that make sense? When I change putters I will go through 7-10 of them until I find my bride. Then I stick with my bride for a while. I’ve had 2 brides…an old scotty newport beach studio stainless. Took about 10 putters to find it and then played it for like 12 years. Current bride is a spider tour plumbers neck. It’s been in the bag for 1.5 years now. Took about 8 putters to get to it, including a somewhat long term relationship with a 2ball fang. Since 1996 I think I’ve had 10 drivers total. 4 in the last 4 years.”
  • platgof: “I would say 24 drivers and 12 putters thereabouts. Took a long time to find what I wanted. I am still looking all the time though, it’s a disease, totally incurable. Now it is the wedges, and the SM7’s have my eye for now!”
  • CDLgolf: “Thats a really good question. At the moment I have 4 putters and 2 drivers. Over the last 25 years I’d have to say I’ve bought more drivers.”
  • Ray Jackson: “Definitely drivers as have used the same putter for at least the last 5 years. In that time frame I’ve probably had 4 drivers.”
  • dekez: “Drivers for sure. I go 6 – 7 years before even thinking about a putter switch.”
