New SuperStroke Traxion series grips launch

Published

on

superstroke-traxion-grips

SuperStroke has unveiled new Traxion series grips – the Traxion Series Putter Grips and the Traxion Tour Swing Grip.

In each of these new grips, SuperStroke has utilized Traxion Control which is a surface texture developed with the goal of enhancing feel and performance. Traxion Control uses “X-shaped treads” that are placed in high-sensory areas throughout the putter grips and swing grips and are designed to help boost feedback and responsiveness in the locations where the sensitive parts of a golfer’s hands contact the grip surface.

Featuring in SuperStroke’s new series of grips is the companies all-new Spyne Technology. The new technology adds a heavily embossed ridge on the underside of the grips which aims to serve as a reminder that guides golfers to repeatable hand placement, making it easier to square the face at impact.

Speaking on the new grips, SuperStroke CEO Dean Dingman stated

“Different golfers need different things to play their best, which is why we offer a wide range of swing and putter grips. But there are also elements of grip design that are good for everyone. Traxion and Spyne are two technologies that are almost universally preferred and can help every golfer improve their game.”

SuperStroke Traxion Series Putter Grips

The Traxion Series Putter Grips are available in 15 models, all of which feature the companies No Taper Technology. The No Taper Technology is designed to help golfers add consistency to their stroke by quieting their hands and minimizing grip pressure through its lower hand profile.

Included in all Traxion Series Putter Grips is Tech-Port, which is an adjustable weight port in the cap of the grip which aims to allow golfers to counter-balance their putter to their needs. Tech-Port accepts all SuperStroke accessories including the CounterCore weight system.

The grips are available now at a price of $29.99.

Traxion Series Putter Grip models

  • Claw Series: The new Claw profile is designed to work with all variations of the putting style. The Claw’s design incorporates a pistol-style top section which looks to help lock in the upper hand, while its three flat sides aim to increase surface area to accommodate different lower hand positions. Sizes: Claw 1.0 (Available April 2019), Claw 2.0 (Available Now). Colors: White/Red/Grey, White/Blue/Grey.
  • Tour Series: The new Tour Series putter grips look to build on SuperStroke’s previous models: the Ultra Slim 1.0, Mid-Slim 2.0, Slim 3.0, and Fatso 5.0. Their round-back design is SuperStroke’s most popular shape. Sizes: Tour 1.0, Tour 2.0, Tour 3.0, Tour 5.0. Colors: White/Red/Grey, Black/White, Red/White, Grey/White, Black/Blue/White.

  • Pistol GT: The Pistol GT putter grips merge a pistol-style top section which aims to help golfers lock in their upper hand position with “No Taper Technology” to provide golfers with the ability to maintain even grip pressure and boost the consistency of their stroke. Sizes: Tour, Pistol GT 1.0, Pistol GT 2.0 Colors: White/Red/Grey, Red/White, White/Blue/Grey
  • SS2R Squared: The SS2R square-shaped grip with four flat sides seeks to help golfers remove excess tension from their hands, wrists, and forearms.  At 107 grams, it provides additional back-weighting and is designed to pair with heavier putter heads. Colors: White/Red/Grey
  • Plus XL Series: SuperStroke’s XL Plus Series grips measure 13.75 inches, which is 3.25 inches longer than the company’s standard length. The extra length is designed for golfers who use mid-length putters or want a little extra counter-balance. Sizes: Tour XL 2.0, the Tour XL 3.0, Flatso XL 2.0 Colors: White/Red/Grey

Traxion Tour Swing Grip

The Traxion Tour Swing Grip features Torsional Performance which is the companies two-piece construction that combines a soft, tacky polyurethane outer layer with a firm, rubber inner core which aims to provide stability and give golfers feedback and control on each shot.

The new Traxion Tour also features Taper Control Technology, Traxion Control and Spyne Technology all found in the Traxion Series Putter Grips.

Speaking on the Traxion Tour Swing Grip, SuperStroke CEO Dean Dingman said

“In the past, choosing a polyurethane swing grip meant compromising performance for comfort. Leveraging what we’ve learned from our putter grips, we’ve been able to fix that. We made huge strides last year with our Cross Comfort swing grip, and the Traxion Tour elevates performance to an even higher level.”

The Traxion Tour arrives in May in four sizes and two colors: White/Grey and White/Red/Grey (standard size only). The grips will cost $6.99 for Undersize and Standard, $7.49 for Midsize, and $7.99 for Jumbo.

    Most players prefer ribbed grips? That’s a new one, I’d definitely say the opposite. Also the SS2R is a straight copy of the Two Thumbs Snug Daddy grips.

    I’m looking forward to trying the swing grip. And yes, a cord version would be more desirable.

    The design look so much better but will these disintegrate in the summer time during humid climate in humid climate regions?

    I have a question. In time say a couple months will these disintegrate in humid temps?

    These golf grips are over priced. That synthetic leather will disintegrate over time in humid temps!

      Agree, and why not just a plan Black grip…$30 dollars and they look like heck after a few months and trying to clean them is a joke..they start breaking down as soon as you wash them…

    Do these disintegrate in a few months in a humid climate, like all the previous ones?

    I’m sure these grips are fine, but why doesn’t Superstroke release the cord version of their grip that we see all over Tour photos? People have been begging for them to release that, and a cord version of their swing grips… they would be instant mega-money-makers, do they not realize that?!

Brendan Steele shows off prototype Wilson Staff driving iron on Instagram

Published

on

Wilson Staff has been making waves recently with a lot of high profile activity including the signing of Gary Woodland and the new Staff blade iron prototypes he has in the bag. It appears that the R&D team at Wilson has just gotten started for 2019, considering another new prototype driving iron has popped up thanks to Brendan Steele posting some very nice pictures on his Twitter and Instagram.

We don’t have a ton of information except for the caption from Brendan’s own post

“Check out this sweet new toy! @wilsongolf was awesome enough to let me create a new prototype driving iron and it couldn’t have turned out better!” 

It has some similarities to the previous V4 Driving Iron from Wilson by the looks of both the screw and the knurling around the hosel

 

but the cosmetics and certainly more inline with the new Staff Blades pictured below along with also appearing to have a shorter heel to toe length and a higher overall toe profile:

Whether or not this new driving iron will show up at retail like the Staff blades, it is definitely something to keep an eye out for.

WRX Spotlight: Nikon Coolshot Pro Stabilized laser rangefinder

Published

on

Product: Nikon Coolshot Pro Stabilized laser rangefinder

Pitch: From Nikon: “This state-of-the art golfing laser rangefinder packs the stability of the Coolshot 80’s vibration reduction into an even more streamlined body. The red Oled internal display’s automatic brightness adjustment makes viewing easy in any light, while Hyper Read measurement response time is a speedy 0.3 seconds (approximately) over a range of 7.5-1,090 m. Locked On technology quickly defines overlapping subjects so you’ll be sure of an accurate reading to the flagstick, plus ID Technology gives a guide distance for uphill and downhill courses.”

Our take on the Nikon Coolshot Pro Stabilized laser rangefinder

Nikon has packed the Coolshot Pro Stabilized full of innovative features with a hugely beneficial streamlined profile. But we’ll get around to that a little later, as at the core of this laser rangefinder is its Stabilized Technology.

Whether it’s the conditions, or an inability to keep your hand perfectly steady when shooting your target, the issue of vibration is usually the main problem when it comes to rangefinders. However, with Nikon’s Stabilized Technology, that vibration is reduced by approximately 80 percent. The steadiness of the rangefinder may need to be seen to be believed, but with the Coolshot Pro Stabilized, any issues golfers have with taking a steady shot of their target can expect them to vanish with this rangefinder. More accurate results and likely speedier rounds (yay), what’s not to love?

This lessening of the vibration works in conjunction with Locked On technology, and it’s a powerful combination that creates a premium rangefinder. The Locked On technology in the Coolshot Pro Stabilized allows golfers to home in on their target, without the fear of the rangefinder locking onto the wrong target in the background. A small green circle frames your desired target, making sure that it is giving you the correct distance for your shot, and it’s not only extremely accurate but quick too. The Hyper Read Tech allows users to find the distance they want according to the company in “0.3 seconds – regardless of distance.” A claim that is difficult to dispute.

Another great feature of the Coolshot Pro Stabilized is its ID Technology. This technology takes care of all the incline, slope etc. The rangefinder from Nikon accurately reads the yardage taking into account the downhill or uphill nature of the pin, while the product also lets other competitors know when the ID Technology is off. If you’re competing in an event, a green flashing light indicates that the ID Technology is turned off, making it clear that actual distance is what you’re measuring, and that you’re abiding by all the rules.

Now let’s get down to the size, which makes all of the features we’ve talked about even more impressive. As you can see from our in-hand photos, the Coolshot Pro Stabilized is tiny and weighs just 180g. The advantages of having a small rangefinder are obvious as it can be carried or kept in even the smallest pocket of your bag easily, and the Coolshot Pro Stabilized is also both waterproof and nitrogen-purged to make it fog-proof. The range finder also features six different brightness levels and comes with a sweet 5-year warranty.

At around $450 the Coolshot Pro Stabilized is high-end and not cheap. But with the impressive features and high performance, it’s a product which combined with Nikon’s 5-year warranty justifies that price-tag. If you’re looking for a top-shelf rangefinder, then the Coolshot Pro Stabilized is very unlikely to disappoint.
