2020 FootJoy Pro SL

FootJoy has unveiled its new Pro SL shoe for 2020 featuring improved traction, stability and comfort as well as an all-new Pro SL Carbon shoe.

The Pro SL shoe features a new Infinity outsole configuration containing 189 points of traction that aim to deliver maximum contact with the ground and the perfect foundation throughout the golf swing for ultimate traction and stability. The infinity shape has an 11.5% wider heel than its predecessor, which seeks to optimize and increase forefoot stability.

The shoe contains a Dual-Density (D2) Midsole which utilizes two densities of FJ proprietary FineTuned Foam (FTF) – designed for a firm FTF around the perimeter for support and control, and a softer FTF under the foot which aims to produce maximum cushioning and comfort.

The new Pro SL from FootJoy is constructed of fully-waterproof ChromoSkin leather by Pittards and arrives in six color codes in laced plus a Boa option for men, and three color codes laced plus a Boa option for women.

Speaking on the new release, Richard Fryer, Director of Product Management, FJ Footwear stated

“As the industry leader, we didn’t tweak or adjust the new Pro|SL, we innovated and advanced and received Tour approval.As a result, we’ve developed a product that delivers more stability, more traction, more comfort and more choice, setting the standard in performance footwear, again”

In addition to the Pro SL, FootJoy has launched the Pro SL Carbon which integrates a full-length carbon fiber insert into the midsole in a bid to provide ultimate stability and motion control.

The Carbon fiber on the Pro SL Carbon flexes and elastically snaps back to its molded position with each step in a design to recover more of the energy generated while walking and allowing the body to work less. Per FootJoy, this feature results in less leg and foot fatigue at the end of the round.

The Pro SL Carbon features enhanced wrap-around comfort and no-slip fit with a soft, molded collar and conforming underfoot cushioning thanks to an OrthoLite Impressions FitBed. The shoe arrives in two color codes and is also constructed of fully-waterproof ChromoSkin leather by Pittards.

2020 FootJoy Pro SL

Both the Pro SL and Pro SL Carbon are available at retail from February 1, 2020. The men’s Pro SL costs $190 laced and $210 Boa, while the Pro SL Carbon costs $220. The women’s Pro SL is priced at $175 laced and $210 Boa.

    I dunno…$200 for a spikeless shoe? Pro SL’s are nice, soft leather shoes but the nubs on the bottom wear out quickly. Then what?

    I’m sure that FootJoy would rather sell $200 shoes than $100 shoes.

    Great time to buy the 2018 version for $99 virtually anywhere.

Today from the Forums: “New Axis 1 Tour-HM models at the 2020 Honda Classic”

Published

on

Today from the Forums shines the spotlight on new Axis 1 Tour-HM models featured at this week’s Honda Classic. The flat-sticks have garnered lots of reaction from WRXers, with our members currently split on the unique designs.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • tiger99210: “I like them. Doesn’t look Odd at all.”
  • Barracuda: “I don’t get the hate on companies that are actually trying to do something better than what we have available. I don’t play axis1, but it was definitely on my shortlist, I ended up with a LAB putter. It does look funky; it also helps me score better than my stunning queen B6.”
  • Steel Dillo: “I’d be more interested if they were priced reasonably. Just don’t see what drives their cost up comparable to a fully milled specialty brand other than having Rose’s name on them. IMO, they should be in that $200-$250 range like their other putters.”

The Cut Blue DC contains a 4-piece construction with a urethane cover designed to maximize spin and greenside feel, while the ball’s 360 dimple pattern is designed to increase aerodynamics.

The latest ball from Cut Golf is fully conforming to USGA rules, features 105 compression (up from 90 on the original Cut Blue) and arrives in both white and atomic yellow color codes.
