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.

That one time Tiger switched driver shafts and NOBODY noticed

Published

on

It seems like pretty much everyone on the planet has an idea of what clubs Tiger has in play at any given moment. Especially now in the age of social media. However, his bag was still analyzed and tracked immensely from the beginning of his arrival on the golf scene. Point is, when the guy switches anything out, the world will know.

But did you know that, during the 2002 and into the 2003 season, he switched driver shafts? It was a pretty substantial switch too, but it fell completely under the radar. As a Tiger junkie myself, I noticed it, but in those days 1) The internet wasn’t what it is today and 2) I was bartending in Newport Beach and didn’t have access to info like I do today. So, it went in my Tiger vault…until now.

Always known to have a True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shaft in his driver, Tiger and the Nike team wanted something a bit lighter, all while maintaining the stiffness profile of his X100.

We now introduce you to the 118-gram DGSLX100 Tiger Proto (a stock Dynamic Gold X100 shaft is 130 grams).

A complete one-off made specifically for Tiger Woods. If you look at the pictures you will see an unfamiliar step pattern that starts off a bit wide towards the handle but gets progressively closer down towards the tip section. Basically, the step pattern (diameters) dropped lower to keep stiffness across the board.

“That’s the shaft we used to get him out of Titleist 975D and into Nike Blue 275cc driver in 2002.” – Anonymous Nike source

In theory, this was Tiger accepting the fact that he was going to have to get used to the feeling of a lighter shaft to begin the inevitable transition into graphite, which ultimately happened for good in 2004.

With the mystery of his bag completely gone these days with minute-to-minute reporting, I thought it kind of nice to still have a couple of nuggets to discover.

GolfWRX Spotlight: Precision Pro NX7 Pro Slope rangefinder

Published

on

If you are looking for a premium full-feature laser range finder at a price normally reserved for more entry-level units, the PrecissionPro NX7 Pro Slope is exactly what you are looking for. Clear optics, easy-to-use, pulse vibration targeting, and last but not least: Free batteries for life. You heard that right, for as long as you own the rangefinder, Precision Pro will make sure you never run out of juice on the course.

NX7 Pro Slope features

Generally, a product that fits into the affordable category has to compromise along the way to meet a certain price point. With the NX7 Pro Slope from Precision Pro, you don’t have to compromise to get everything you would want from a top-of-the-line rangefinder at a less-than-top-of-the-line price.

The NX7 has pulse vibration, which notifies the user the laser has locked onto the target. Having used a lot of other rangefinders in the past, I always thought of a “pulse” as being a bit of a redundant feature to someone with experience using a rangefinder. I was completely indifferent but was quickly proven wrong! To me, the pulse is just the extra reassurance to know that I am locked onto the flag instead of something behind. The NX7 Pro Slope does this with a priority target acquisition process to make sure you are getting the flag and not a tree behind the intended target.

As the name would lead you to believe, the NX7 Pro Slope comes with a slope feature that can be turned on and off for casual mapping of a course or competition—just be sure to check with any tournament committee for conformity during an event. It’s easy to see both the measured and calculated distances in the viewfinder without ever being cluttered.

The extras

Each rangefinder comes with a well-made protective case that allows you to store the unit either on the outside of your bag or tucked away for safekeeping during travel to and from the course. Although it seems like a small feature, details matter, and having the case latch with a mini elastic cord makes getting the rangefinder out just that much easier—no need to zip and unzip 40 times per round.

The rangefinder also comes with a cleaning cloth, pre-installed battery—and don’t forget those batteries for life. All you need to do is register your rangefinder and go through the form on the Precision Pro website.

For $289, it’s one of the best buys in the rangefinder market.

Published

on

Bettinardi has collaborated with six-time NBA Champion and Chicago Bulls Legend, Scottie Pippen to create limited Home, Road, and Alternate authentic jersey headcovers ahead of this weekend’s NBA All-Star game.

Pippen is the only NBA player to have won an NBA title and Olympic gold medal in the same year twice (1992, 1996), and just 33 of the covers have been made by Bettinardi – which are constructed from the NBA star’s own authentic jersey collection making each cover unique.

The covers feature the seven-time NBA All-Star’s iconic number 33, his signature stitched across the underbelly and also the Hex B logo.

The covers will be available to purchase in the Hive at Noon CST on Saturday. Bettinardi will also have a special USA “Dream Team” 1992 cover (only 8 made) due to release at the same time.

Also look out for a special “All-Star”  giveaway which will be unveiled on Bettinardi’s Instagram page on Sunday.
