Spotted: True Temper Dynamic Gold 120 shafts

Published

on

We spotted new iron shafts from True Temper, called Dynamic Gold 120, on the range of the 2017 Honda Classic on Monday. The number “120” refers to the weight of the shafts, making them lighter than the company’s line of Dynamic Gold shafts (for comparison, check out those specs here).

In an Instagram post, the company confirmed that the shafts are designed to produce the same launch and spin as the company’s ever-popular Dynamic Gold shafts, but are built to be lighter for those players who desire that feel.

As a reminder, the graphic below from True Temper’s website shows for whom the Dynamic Gold shafts are designed.

    Don’t they have a DG SL in their lineup? Or is this an inbetween model?

    Meh. KBS, Nippon and Project X have already done lightweight “tour” shafts. Call me when they release a DG150.

    The labeling graphics are totally obnoxious. Horrendous. Hideous. They should have kept with the small, stylish label like all their other DG shafts, but just updated.

      Sweet…do you hit equipment for how it looks or how it preforms and feels???

        Duh. This is WRX. Who the hell cares about performance? It’s all about the looks! Otherwise we wouldn’t even have this website. If looks didn’t matter we wouldn’t need this site for photos. Duh

      Some are just sticker labels you can peel off.

    They need to do this, but also offer them as ascending weight just as the AMT are.

    KBS beat them to the punch on this one.

      However, KBS is a totally different flex pattern though. I like the KBS 120 but for me it is a little more difficult to control than the standard dynamic gold S300.

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.
