on

While you may be familiar with box sets of golf clubs from big box stores, you haven’t seen a bundle like Bridgestone just announced. The Tour B ADF set comes with clubs, a stand bag, and custom Bag Boy T-10 Travel Case.

With respect to the clubs in question, the set includes: XD5 Driver, XDF 3-Wood (15 degrees), XDH Hybrid (18 degrees), X-HI Driving Irons, X-CBP forged irons, XW-1 Wedges (52, 56-degrees). The driver, fairway wood and hybrid models previously only existed in Asian markets, but due to popular demand, they are being brought to North America exclusively for the ADF (Accuracy, Distance, Feel) set.

“Not only have we optimized the individual elements of ADF, but also the buying experience, as we’re making it as easy as possible for discerning golfers to select a full set of premium products at an unbeatable price,” says Zack Kupperbusch, Golf Club Marketing. “From world-class tires to superior golf balls, everything Bridgestone makes is engineered for performance and the ADF Set includes an array of our most acclaimed equipment in one convenient package.”

Golf Pride Multicompound red/platinum grips are standard across the set. The Tour B ADF set is available in regular or stiff, and with either a 9.5 or 10.5-dgree driver. The retail value of the individual components is over $3,500, however, the set costs $2,800.

    Bridgestone makes some outstanding gear. I wish they’d focus on getting distribution in US golf shops instead of these kinds of silly moves.

    This flies in the face of customer fitting being paramount. Can’t have it both ways.

Titleist to release Vokey SM7 Wedges in State Blue finish

Published

on

Vokey-SM7-Slate-Blue

Titleist has announced that its Vokey SM7 wedges are to be released in a Slate Blue finish from January 31.

The new finish on the SM7 Slate Blue wedges is applied like a standard PVD finish, but according to the company, the finish contains a unique material and involves a time-intensive process, the combination of which provides a finish that will possess maximum durability.

Speaking on the addition of the State Blue finish to the SM7 wedge range, master craftsman Bob Vokey stated

“Very often wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last. At the same time, the most durable finishes often aren’t stunning. Slate Blue combines the two. Not only will golfers love their wedge when they see it in the shop, the finish will last through the course of normal play.”

As with all of the Vokey SM7 range, the State Blue is available in 23 loft, bounce, and grind options for both right and left-handers.

The stock set-up for the Vokey SM7 State Blue features a Nippon Modus3 125 shaft and custom BV Wings New Decade Multi-Compound Black Grip. However, the wedges will also be available for customization on Vokey.com.

The Vokey SM7 State Blue hits retail stores on January 31 and will cost $199.99.

New Ping G410 irons: “The most forgiving iron of its size”

Published

on

Ping has unveiled its new G410 Irons, the company’s latest game-improvement model, featuring less offset and a higher MOI compared to any of their previous models.

These 2019 Ping irons feature a face and cavity structure that aims to deliver faster ball speeds while saving weight to expand the perimeter weighting. The additional weight savings are re-distributed to the toe and hosel to achieve an 8% increase in the moment of inertia (MOI), which is designed to offer golfers more forgiveness and consistency.

The irons feature a more flexible and free moving face, achieved by de-coupling the weighting structure from the face to create a larger flexing zone. The larger flexing zone is designed to act as a hinge to launch the ball faster and higher with consistency, allowing golfers to take less club into the green.

Speaking on the companies new G410 Irons, Ping President John K. Solheim, said

“In the G410 iron, our engineers challenged the idea that you can’t make an iron smaller and increase the forgiveness at the same time. They’ve developed a clean, highly appealing design with less offset and a significantly higher MOI when compared to the G400 iron.

“It’s the most forgiving iron of its size. It will appeal to a very wide range of golfers as it produces faster ball speeds, maximum forgiveness and amazing feel with a pleasing appearance — all the attributes they need to hit their iron shots higher, farther and straighter.”

The Ping G410 rrons contain a slightly shorter blade length and 10% less offset compared to the G400 iron, and the clubs Hydropearl 2.0 finish aims to contribute towards smooth turf interaction. While the full-cavity, co-molded aluminum and elastomer badge of the new irons from Ping is designed to deliver players with a more satisfying sound and greater overall feel.

The same geometry used on the Glide 2.0 wedge series, has been utilized in the G410 wedges (PW, UW, SW and LW). The wedges contain a sharp edge radius which aims to increase interaction with the cover of the ball at impact, creating greater friction, resulting in improved spin and trajectory control.

Concerning Ping’s new high-spin wedges, Solheim stated

“The fully machined grooves on all four wedges are an example of the added detail we’ve engineered into the G410 irons. For players who want a consistent look and feel throughout their set, they can now enjoy much higher spin and control in their scoring clubs along with all the other performance benefits of the iron’s technology.”
