Jordan Spieth using SuperStroke S-Tech club grips

Published

on

You may know Jordan Spieth has a SuperStroke Flatso Ultra (Black/White) putter grip, but did you know he recently switched to SuperStroke’s new S-Tech club grips on the rest of his clubs?

Jordan Spieth’s 2016 WITB

Since putting the S-Tech grips on his other 13 clubs (beside the putter) at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii — where he won by 8 shots — he’s been a lights-out 30-under par, according to SuperStroke. Impressive, even for the 2015 Player of the Year.

“I’m excited to be using the new S-Tech club grips,” Spieth said. “I’ve always trusted SuperStroke’s putter grip technology and I’m confident the S-Tech grips will deliver the same performance.”

Of course, you wouldn’t expect Spieth to say anything different about a sponsor, but he doesn’t need to. The fact he’s gaming the retail version of the S-Tech grips (black grips, albeit with white lettering) says enough about the quality of SuperStroke’s new club grip offering.

Other golfers playing SuperStroke club grips include Jason Dufner (S-Tech prototype cord) and Sergio Garcia (S-Tech) and Victor Dubuisson (TX1 half cord).

    i have their TX-1 original grips on a couple of fairways and they are coming off. No tack, no nothing, but they look good. That’s about it.

    The S-Tech supposedly have tack — they’ve got to be better.

    Is SuperStroke not in the business of making money or am crazy? They would sell so many of these things if they just sold the exact ones Spieth and Duf are using?

    Yeah it’s weird how they have to keep the Tour guys looking “special” for using something different to the retail ones

    So looks like his aren’t quite the retail version, looks to have white lettering and no patter on one spot where his lower index finger would rest. Also someone at the PGA Show mentioned that his are the .580 Core size. I don’t get companies sometimes, if they are already making something a little different for the #1 player in the world, they are only going to sell more if they release the exact same version. Its a rubber grip its not like it would cost a bunch more to make his over the retail version considering they already have the die. Anyways enough of my rant.

      .580’s do cost a TINY bit more to make than .600’s, you can also order customised lettering from SS if you order enough of them, so theoretically you could get the exact same ones (afaik the compound and pattern is the same as the retail ones coming out in April) the TX1 half-cords are a brilliant grip that were instantly dismissed by the industry for being “just another half-cord” when in reality they’re the first soft, sticky half-cord grip i’ve come across, and i’m truly enjoying mine! I’ll add I don’t actually play a SuperStroke putter grip, i’m using a twothumb snug daddy because they’re nicer to hold onto!

        sorry i’ll add again that I personally think the yellow on the S-Tech grips looks awful and they’d have been far better off with white from the start! but assuming they’re still selling TX1’s when i regrip again in August I will stick with those and not these new ones.

Titleist AVX golf balls passed the test, are now available across the United States

Published

on

Titleist’s AVX golf balls first came to retail as an experiment in three markets — Arizona, California and Florida — from October 2017 to January 2018. AVX (which stands for “Alternative to the V and X”) are three-piece golf balls made with urethane covers, and they’re made with a softer feel for more distance than the Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls.

After proving their worth to consumers, Titleist’s AVX golf balls are now available across the U.S. as of April 23, and they will sell for 47.99 per dozen (the same as Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls) in both white and optic yellow.

According to Michael Mahoney, the Vice President of Golf Ball Marketing for Titleist, the AVX is a member of the Pro V1 family. Here’s a basic understanding of the lineup:

  • AVX: Softest, lowest trajectory, lowest spinning, less greenside spin and longest
  • Pro V1x: Firmer than the Pro V1, highest spinning and highest trajectory
  • Pro V1: Sits between the V1x and the AVX in terms of feel, spin and trajectory, and will appeal to most golfers

Different from the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, the AVX golf balls have a new GRN41 thermoset cast urethane cover to help the golf balls achieve the softer feel. Also, they have high speed, low compression cores, a new high-flex casing layer, and a new dimple design/pattern.

For in-depth tech info on the new AVX golf balls, how they performed in the test markets, and who should play the AVX golf balls, listen to our podcast below with Michael Mahoney, or click here to listen on iTunes.
