First look: ’13 Nike Method Core Weighted Putters

Published

on

Take a look at Nike’s new line of Method Core putters for 2013 that add fixed weights that Nike says moves the center of gravity lower and a further distance from the putter face for a better roll. The weights also allow Nike to fine tune the weight of a putter for different lengths.

“Most people don’t realize that they are about three-tenths of an inch above the ground at impact,” Franklin said. “You need to keep the center of gravity of the putter as low as you can so that it never gets higher than the CG of the ball. This stops the putter from driving the ball down and creating backspin on the ball.”

The Method Core Weighted putters employ the same milled face and Polymetal Grooves that were used in previous Method Core models.

The putters will be available Nov. 1, 2012 in five different models, and carry an MSRP of $169.

  • MC01w —  Available in right-handed and left-handed models. Specs: 2 degrees of loft,  33, 34 and 35 inches
  • MCO2w — Right-handed only. Specs: 2 degrees of loft,  33, 34 and 35 inches
  • MC03w — Right-handed only. Specs: 2 degrees of loft,  33, 34 and 35 inches
  • MCO4w — Right-handed only. Specs: 2 degrees of loft,  33, 34 and 35 inches
  • MC11w — Right-handed only. Specs: 2 degrees of loft,  33, 34 and 35 inches

    So the weights are fixed? Brilliant!! I sure know that everyone that I fit with a 34″ putter wants the exact same headweight?!?!?!

    I wish they would have put the weighting system in the milled version of the Method Putters

    Time to get with it Nike. Lefty’s needs more than a plumbers neck. Your Method 003 should have been released in Lefty years ago. Major duh factor.

Spotted: Fujikura Ventus shafts

Published

on

fujikura-ventus-shafts

Photos of a new shaft offering from Fujikura have appeared in the GolfWRX Forums. We first spotted the Fujikura Ventus on Tour at the Safeway Open last year, and it went into two players’ bags that week.

Since then, the shaft has been showing up on Tour more frequently, and it is expected to come to retail some time early this year.

The Ventus is a Tour inspired design — meaning low torque and a stiff tip section. This profile creates a mid-launching shaft that also offers low spin.

The use of extremely stiff 70-ton pitch fiber throughout the full length of the shaft, creates more center face contact by reducing twisting at impact. The 70-ton fiber is laid at 45 degrees in the bias layer for tighter dispersion and consistency.

Fujikura itself tweeted the following evidence of continued player testing of the shaft.

Spotted: Project X HZRDUS Yellow Smoke shafts

Published

on

A Project X HZRDUS Yellow Smoke shaft has surfaced in the GolfWRX Forums.

To expand its popular HZRDUS line, it looks like Project X is testing the new Smoke series to include the Yellow Profile. If you recall, the Yellow was the second profile added to the original HZRDUS line which has the key features of

  • Higher balance point to allow for both longer lengths, or heads with a higher than standard mass.
  • Slightly softened profile for smoother tempo players, and increased feel

The pictures also show off a new “Small Batch” logo that seems to be a play on the very popular original Hand Crafted. This would appear related to the moving of the Hand Crafted production line out of the U.S. manufacturing facility in San Diego owing to the growing demand in the market for the shafts in both the aftermarket and with OEMs. These “Small Batch” shafts could mean a return to the U.S. production facility for Project X.

Bringing the Yellow Profile into the Smoke line would add a softer higher balance point (counter balanced) profile to a line up already designed to have increased feel. From a fitting standpoint, this could be another win-win shaft, perfect for the slightly less aggressive players looking to play a longer driver without sacrificing feel.

Forum Thread of the Day: “2019 Accra TZ5 & TZ6 shafts”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases the 2019 Accra TZ5 & TZ6 shafts. The shafts have been met with resounding approval from our members on our forum, who almost to a man find them a thing of beauty, and are eager to find out just when they will hit the shelves.

For more photos, make sure to check out the full forum thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, and you can join the discussion at the link below.

  • Ziggy16: “Yessssss love it. I had the chance to hit Accra shafts for the first time in 2018. I think they are some of the best feeling shafts I’ve ever swung. It’s between them and VA Composites, although I just saw Oban is now back in the game. Still, after all these years, the HB is still making a mark in my bag.”
  • KMo23: “Have the TZP Proto in the Driver, can’t wait to find a weight and launch profile for a fairway wood. Lots of tour guys switching to this!”
  • Oaks: “It’s the best feeling Shaft I can remember in a while.  Reminds me of the old ACCRA feel that they were known for.”
  • rpmspooner: “I had a chance to chat with Reid at Accra yesterday. They are extremely excited about the Tz5 and Tz6. I think they think this one is a home run. “Smoother mid section” was the response. If that is true, I don’t know who is going to compete with ACCRA this year. They already owned the smooth space in golf shafts.”
