Published

on

Precision Pro Golf is poised to launch a pair of rangefinders—the NX7 and NX7 Pro—at the PGA Merchandise Show next week.

The NX7, which will retail for $199.95, is the successor to the Nexus Rangefinder. The NX7 features Precision Pro’s one-second Target Lock function, a 30 percent faster laser and a compact design that’s 25 percent smaller than the Nexus.

The NX7 Pro, which retails for $249.95, includes all of the features of the NX7 model. The Pro adds Adaptive Slope Technology, which allows golfers to measure elevation. The NX7 Pro is tournament legal, as the slope mode can be turned off. Another Pro feature: Pulse Vibration Technology, which pulses when the rangefinder locks onto the target.

“The NX7 and NX7 Pro Rangefinders are our 4th generation products. We’ve put in a lot of work to improve the accuracy, durability and design,” says Clay Hood, PGA, Co-Founder of Precision Pro Golf. “The NX7 Rangefinders are our most advanced and accurate models that will compete head to head with the more expensive rangefinder brands that sell for $299-$399.”

Precision Pro Golf is offering a mail-in rebate promotion starting March 1, 2017 through June 30, 2017 that will offer a $30 rebate for the NX7 and a $50 rebate for the NX7 Pro (available in US market only). The company will be at the PGA Merchandise Show in booth #1606.

    Picked one of these up (the pro model) and couldn’t be happier. Its easy to use, has all the features of Bushnell and was inexpensive. Been pushing them hard to my customers ever since.

    Can’t wait, definitely going to pick the NX7 Pro up. Can’t see any difference (spec wise) to go for something like 2017 V4 or V4 Switch. Looking forward to trying it out and definitely going to point my friends in this direction.

    Sounds like a terrific range finder – can’t wait to check it out – but a “30% faster laser” ? Your light is 30% faster than regular light ? What would Einstein say ? 😀

      The NX7 Rangefinder has a dynamic scanning target lock that allows you to scan over the flag 2-3 times and lock in the exact distance (eliminating background images). We have improved the Target Lock speed to just under 1 second (30% faster than the NEXUS RANGEFINDER). FYI: Every rangefinder has the same 905nm laser (regulated as a class 1 laser by the FDA) and you each company can modify the functionality of the laser to work differently.

      Hope this information helps! 🙂

    This product looks and sounds like the perfect Rang Finder. I would buy this NOW! Trying to get one now because the price is super reasonable.

    Scoreband has a slope rangefinder for quite a bit less and the same functions.

      Scoreband doesnt offer a 2-year warranty or the best customer service in the industry. We designed the NX7 to compete with the V4 in terms of quality, accuracy and performance.

    Been interested in a rangefinder for a couple years now. May just have to pick one of the up. Hopefully it works with my not so steady hands.

      Mark, the NX7 Rangefinder has a different type of target lock function (nothing like it on the market). We have a 1-second dynamic scanning target lock function that allows you to scan over the flag for 1-second to lock in the actual distance, eliminating any background images such as trees.

      When we were launching our company back in 2013, the one issue we heard from 75% of golfers we surveyed was the “shaky hands” issue and this was one reason they purchased a rangefinder. The dynamic scanning target lock eliminates this issue completely in the NX7 rangefinder (and the NEXUS rangefinder – 2015 model).

      As avid golfers, we stand behind all of our products and offer best in industry customer service if there are any issues with our line of Rangefinders or GPS Products.

      Thanks

      I have shaky hands and have the NX7 Pro. This was my biggest concern. I used it for the first time Tuesday and it worked great. The way the NX7 Pro is set to scan a flag, it seems that it benefits shaky hands. I just point right at the flag and my natural shake sends the rangefinder back and forth across the flag and about 1-2 seconds later, I get the vibration notification and the yardage for distance and distance adjusted for slope. Very fast and very easy to use.

    The NX7 Rangefinders will also offer a 2-year manufacturer warranty, inline with the competitors warranty programs. We are also offering free battery replacements for the NX7 line (3-volt CR2 battery)

Talking with Alonzo Guess of Sunfish…and a look at the insane headcover they made GolfWRX

Published

on

We last talked with Alonzo Guess of Sunfish in November of 2017 after the Nashville-based company launched a custom headcover and accessory builder on its website.

The company has been producing custom headcovers, yardage books, and other accessories since 2013 when it entered the market with its signature wool headcovers.

We wanted to see what was up, and Guess was kind enough not only to answer a few questions, but to design a pretty incredible GolfWRX driver cover using some raw assets we sent over.

BA: What’s new at Sunfish since we last talked? 

AG: 2018 was a great year for innovation at Sunfish. We worked hard to develop new design and construction techniques, and it has been really exciting combining these new creative elements into one of a kind headcovers and accessories. 2018 was our eighth year in business, but it was probably the most significant in terms of innovation. We’re excited to see where we can go from here!

BA: Looking at your websites, I know one of the new things you developed is something you call Photoflux. What exactly is Photoflux?

AG: Photoflux is our proprietary high-resolution printing process, that gives us the ability to apply to our products anything from photos to complex patterns to intricate logos. The level of resolution and detail is truly unmatched, and can’t be achieved with embroidery. We apply it to our leather and Duraleather products, even our hand-made copper ball markers and divot tools! Those are really exciting, because we can make custom copper ball markers with full color logos, on demand

BA: How the heck did you come up Photoflux?

AG: A customer ordered a scorecard holder with his family photo to be embroidered on each side. We made the piece and weren’t happy at all with the result. The embroidery process couldn’t do justice to the photographs. It was clear that there were certain limitations to embroidery, and we were motivated to overcome them. After months of trial and error, long hours and strenuous testing against sun, rain, and wear, we developed the current process.

BA: What are ways the Photoflux process can be used?

AG: Photoflux is perfect for applying photos, but can also be used for intricate logos or family crests. Really any graphic element can be expressed accurately using Photoflux, including shading. Recently we’ve had fun developing custom patterns such as tiger fur and using them as stripes on headcovers. The sky’s the limit!

Photoflux is best in concert with other design techniques, such as embroidery, laser engraving, and precision cutting and sewing. The featured piece (shown in this feature) incorporates Photoflux, precision cutting and sewing, laser engraving and embroidery. The result is as much artwork as it is a functional golf accessory.

BA: What are the limitations of the technology…what products can you apply Photoflux to?

AG: It’s great for leather and Duraleather headcovers, putter covers, scorecard and yardage book holders, alignment stick covers, cash covers, valuables pouches, wine bags, barrel style tartan headcovers…and even copper ball markers and divot tools!

BA: Tell me about this headcover you made for GolfWRX. I suggested the use of a graffiti wall, a GolfWRX logo, and skeleton hand holding up one finger to denote one club/driver, and you really went to town!

AG: So for the headcover you have, we used Photoflux to apply the graffiti wall image to the top of the cover (did you notice the ‘GolfWRX’ spraypaint in there? We threw that in there for you as an Easter egg!). On top of that, we embroidered the skeleton hand. For the stripe, we laser cut the outline of a typical urban skyline, and laser engraved the chain-link fence pattern over the top, than sewed that down. The bottom portion is a Photoflux image of GolfWRX that you sent over.

With so many new ways to decorate and manipulate the materials, we’re really excited about combining it all for our fans and customers to create really unique products. We feel the sky is the limit, and we hope this headcover illustrates that.

New XXIO Prime woods, hybrids, and irons aim for lightweight power

Published

on

xxio-prime-feat

XXIO’s latest club offerings, XXIO Prime, looks to offer easy distance and easy accuracy for the moderate swing speed golfer, according to the company.

XXIO Prime woods

xxio-prime

XXIO Prime Woods feature a new re-designed hosel structure, and reduced stiffness at the tip of the driver shaft, which is designed to help moderate swing speed golfers to close the clubface through impact.

Forged from Super-TIX PLUS Titanium, the new cup face includes a sweet spot that is noticeably larger than previous designs, which aims to increase distance performance significantly. The Super-TIX PLUS Titanium Cup Face is thinner, lighter and stronger than previous additions, creating a maximum COR across the face, which aims to increase ball speed and distance.

According to Chuck Thiry, Vice President of XXIO USA

“The speed increases, higher launch angles, and draw bias of the new Prime will show immediate results from swing one. It’s legit lightweight power for the players that absolutely need it the most.”

Featured in the XXIO prime woods is the SP-1000 shaft, with TORAYCA T1100G carbon fiber and NANOALLOY resin, which creates a strong but lightweight club. Along with the lightness in the shaft, XXIO has made weight savings in the grip and club head, which aims to produce woods that are both fast and easy to swing.

The XXIO Prime woods feature an expanded toe and narrowed heel, a tungsten-nickel inner weight that is low and deep, a lighter hosel repositioned closer to the center of the face, and reduced stiffness at the tip of the shaft, all with the aim of offering golfers with maximum forgiveness from their woods.

The XXIO Prime woods will be available from March 1 and will cost $579,99.

XXIO Prime hybrids and irons

The new XXIO Prime hybrids feature an expanded COR and a lower center of gravity, which is designed to increase distance and ball speed while delivering a straighter ball flight.

The hybrids from XXIO contain a Forged Maraging Steel Cup Face which includes a large sweet spot which aims to increase distance performance.

Just as with the woods, the XXIO irons also feature the Super-TIX PLUS Titanium Cup Face, though along with this, they also contain a CNC milled speed groove, which significantly increases the COR, creating a larger sweet spot, designed to provide greater distance, ball speed and accuracy.

Both the hybrids and irons include the SP-1000 Shaft, with TORAYCA T1100G carbon fiber and NANOALLOY resin. The hybrids and irons also feature weight savings in the grip and club head, with the aim of increasing swing speed.

With an expanded toe and narrowed heel, plus a crown step that moves weight low and deep, XXIO claim that this is their most forgiving suite of Prime hybrids. While with two high-density tungsten nickel sole weights and an overall profile that is 3mm shorter than the previous model, the company also claims to have created their most forgiving irons yet.

Speaking on the new XXIO Prime series, Chuck Thiry stated

“XXIO Prime is, quite frankly, the most unique and beneficial product ever available to moderate swing speed players. Period. People might think that is marketing hype, but they simply haven’t hit Prime yet.”

Both the XXIO Prime hybrids and irons will hit retail stores on March 1. The Prime hybrids will cost $379.99, while a single graphite iron will be available for $259.99.

SPOTTED: 2019 Mitsubishi shafts

Published

on

2019-mitsubishi-diamana-shafts

The Diamana shaft line from Mitsubishi Chemical is probably one of the most iconic in the sport. Released in 2005, Blueboard, Whiteboard, and Redboard, were the first generation of shafts.

Photos of the full fourth generation Diamana lineup, offering new materials and technology, along with new names, have surfaced in the GolfWRX forums. Like previous generations, each color shaft offers different ball flight and spin characteristics.

“RF” is the highest launching and spinning in the Diamana line, offering high launch and mid spin, while the “BF” is the mid-launch and mid/low-spin model. Finally, the “DF” is mid/low-launching and the lowest-spinning shaft in the lineup.

All of the fourth generation Diamana shafts use updated technologies and materials that you would expect from a premium lineup. DIALEAD pitch fiber is helps reduce shaft deformation, while still producing exceptional energy transfer.

Each shaft contains MR70 carbon fiber that is 20 percent stronger than conventional materials and Boron fiber for its compression strength and shaft reinforcement. ION plating has been done before in the Diamana line, in vacuum chambers — silver alloy ions are bonded to the shaft to give it a chrome-like finish that can’t be replicated by paint.

See what GolfWRX Members are saying in the forums.
