Ping launches limited-edition Ketch putters in camo

Published

on

In January, Ping officially announced a custom-putter program called PLD1 (Ping Putting Lab Design) that allows any golfer to create a one-off, fully customized beauty like the pros. Today, the company is showing off a new level of customization with a limited-edition putter launch.

Ping has released two versions of what it’s calling its PLD2 putters — the Camo Ketsch Realtree Xtra and the Camo Ketsch Muddy Girl — that are “part of the lab’s effort to advance new putter design, technology and engineering concepts,” according to the company.

In this case, the camo graphics are the advancement Ping cooked up in its lab. They were added to the putters with a proprietary anodized sealing process called “Permodize,” which permeates the aluminum putter heads to create “vibrant and rich detail while creating an extremely hard, durable shell,” according to Ping’s Chairman and CEO John A. Solheim.

Solheim says the Ketch putter model was chosen specifically for the camo design because of its complex geometry, which “challenged [Ping] to execute the process to its fullest extent.” And according to Solheim, more of this can be expected from his company in the future.

“This type of technology has functional and decorative applications that we look forward to utilizing in the future,” he said.

Beginning today, golfers can order the PLD2 Camo Ketsch Realtree Xtra and Camo Ketsch Muddy Girl putters ($325 each) through Ping authorized golf shops.

    Call me crazy but I appreciate custom runs like this for companies outside of golf, and if i had the extra cash i’d purchase one, just to be different and to annoy the S*** out of traditionalists

Callaway Golf launches new titanium Jailbreak-powered Super Hybrid

Published

on

Callaway Super Hybrid

Callaway Golf aims to redefine what a hybrid can be with the introduction of the all-new, multi-material, titanium-powered Callaway Super Hybrid for 2020. Built to offer the distance, ball speed and forgiveness of a fairway wood, with the added benefit of being built into a hybrid chassis, the Callaway Super Hybrid is the designed for those golfers that want control without sacrificing distance.

Creating a hybrid that performs like a fairway wood takes some serious engineering, and in the case of the new Callaway Super Hybrid, it means pulling out all the stops with technology and packing it all into one finely tuned club.

Here’s everything the R&D team at Callaway has been able to accomplish with this hybrid design

2020 Callaway Super Hybrid: Details

High-Strength Titanium Face insert

The Titanium face insert of the Super Hybrid promotes greater ball speeds and ball speed consistency thanks to variable face thickness, according to the company. Adding in Callaway’s proven Jailbreak technology helps stiffen the total structure of the clubhead’s titanium body. This places, as Callaway says, more impact load on the Face Insert to push the limits of flex and ball speed retention.

Light Weight Carbon Crown

An all-new T2C Triaxial Carbon Crown has a tighter weave than other composite crowns used in the past which increases strength and saves weight versus a traditional hybrid’s steel crown. The weight savings are then redistributed within the head to lower the Center of Gravity, and raise MOI for consistent distance on mishits.

Full Titanium Body With Precise Tungsten Weighting

Using a titanium body (the crown not withstanding) allows Callaway engineers to place a large volume of tungsten into the heel and toe of each clubs to once again increased MOI and optimized ball flight.

Using the same Metal Injection Molded Tungsten Weighting technology seen in other Callaway clubs, including the Epic Star line, Callaway is able to place a very high volume Metal Injection Molded (MIM’ed) tungsten weight to optimize CG for launch and control. How much tungsten you might ask? 68 grams per head—that’s close to 30 percent of the average hybrid’s total head mass!

Tech Specs and Options

The Callaway Super Hybrid will be available in three loft options, all three of which will also be available in left-handed. The stock shaft is the popular Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei CK PRO Orange 80 Hybrid shaft, but like anything Callaway, it will also include a large amount of no-upcharge options for custom orders.

Callaway Super Hybrid Pricing and Availability

The Callaway Super Hybrid is now available for preorder with retail stock hitting shelves on November 1st.

MSRP: $319.99
