Cleveland Golf has introduced its Frontline putter series which features a brand-new weighting system which brings the center of gravity forward in a bid for greater stability through impact.

The tungsten forward weighting on the Frontline series places two Metal Injection Molded (MIM) tungsten weights in the face of the putter. According to the company, the design places the center of gravity forward in the new putter for maximum accuracy on the greens.

Speaking on the new Cleveland putters, Jacob Lambeth, Research and Development Engineer at Cleveland Golf, stated

“We are very excited about Frontlinebecause it is a completely new approach to putter design. By pairing an extreme center of gravity with an improved speed-optimized face, we’ve designed a putter that uniquely maximizes directional and speed consistency. Combined with slick black cosmetics, great shapes and hosel options for different stroke types, Frontline really is the whole package.”

The new additions feature the brand’s Speed Optimized Face Technology (SOFT) which is designed to normalize ball speed across the face for consistent distance performance on each putt. Every model in the Frontline series also includes an individualized SOFT pattern which aims to prevent speed and distance loss, particularly on off-center strikes.

Frontline offers three different mallet options that include Cleveland’s 2135 technology, which is designed to provide an excellent alignment aid regardless of where your eyes sit at address. Two hosel types are also on offer for the Frontline mallets—single bend and slant neck. The former suited to those with a straight stroke and the latter for golfers with a slight arc stroke.

The putters come with a Lamkin SINKFit Pistol Frontline grip and are available in 33”, 34”, and 35” length options. The Frontline 4.0 blade MAP is $179.99, while the three different mallet models (Elevado, Cero and Iso) MAP is $199.99. The Frontline series will be available at retail from September 14.

    There are obvious quality putters on the market, but eventually the truth is in the talent of the person putting. Any decent putter can prove effective without constantly spending $$$.

    If these putters get their high MoI from those big chunks of tungsten in the toe and the heel, why bother with the mallet styles?

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
