Spotted: Fourteen Golf H030 wedges

Published

on

For golfers who struggle mightily around the greens, especially from the bunker, a wedge with a wide sole can make things a bit easier. Think of designs such as Cleveland’s Smart Sole, Callaway’s Sure Out, and the Alien wedge of yesteryear. While these wedges may have less-than-traditional looks, they can help golfers who care more about getting the ball on the green than how they do it.

At the 2017 U.S. Open, we learned that Fourteen Golf is throwing its hat in the ring of ultra-forgiving wedges with its new H030. A Fourteen Golf representative admits that it’s an unorthodox design. It uses a hollow-bodied club head with what the company calls a “planet sole,” which moves more mass to the sole than a traditional wedge to help golfers make better contact and launch the ball higher.

“There is no way around it, it is a very unorthodox design,”  aFourteen Golf representative said. “The designers in Japan were going after the super-forgiving wedge like the Sure Out or the Smart Sole and decided to really try something different.”

The wedges will come in 38, 50 and 56-degree options and sell for $280 each. According to Fourteen Golf, the 38-degree wedge is “essentially a chipper.” That means it’s a club to be used around the greens, mostly from the turf, where you’d typically opt for a bump-and-run type shot.

Spotted: New Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft

Published

on

The official Tour launch of the Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft is this week at the 2018 Forth Worth Invitational at Colonial, and we were able to snap a few photos on the range. MSI stands for millions of pounds per square inch, and basically, it refers to how stiff the fiber is — the higher the number, the greater stiffness it has.

Headed to retail later this summer, according to Aldila, the lower-launching, lower-spinning Rogue Silver 130 MSI is the successor to the Rogue Silver 125 MSI.

Per the company, the new Rogue Silver 130 MSI will feature the same tapered butt-counter-balanced design as the 125. The stronger 130 MSI carbon fiber produces slightly lower torque, however, and is the strongest material in a Rogue shaft to date.

Several Tour pros have already made the switch to the new shaft:

  • Jimmy Walker put the 70 TX in his driver for the first time at The Players. He had been gaming the 80 TX in his fairway wood since the Masters.
  • Kevin Chappell has been playing the 80 TX in both his 3 and 5-woods.
  • Martin Flores has put the 70 TX in his driver
  • Chez Reavie put the 60 TX in his driver at the Masters.

We’ll bring you more details as they become available closer to launch. Click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the new shaft in our forums.
