Bushnell unleashes the Tour Z6 rangefinder

Published

on

You just ripped your driver right down the middle of the fairway. And you’re set up perfectly for approach to the green, right on your number.

All you have left is a little 8 iron in. You take aim at the flagstick, and put a nice easy swing on the ball. Hole high, birdie attempt. Right?

Wrong. You flew the green. But you didn’t overcook the shot or mishit it. In fact, you struck the ball perfectly, just the way you wanted. So what happened?

You flew the green because you miscalculated the distance. And even the smallest distance miscalculations can leave you in disastrous positions, staring down the barrel of round killing bogeys and double bogeys.

Enter the revolutionary new Bushnell Tour Z6 Laser Rangefinder. It takes distance uncertainty out of the game, and replaces it with absolute yardage confidence.

“It’s smaller, sleeker, and has tons of range,” said Bushnell representative John Novosel.

In addition to incorporating tour proven PinSeeker Technology (PST) and an impressive 6x magnification, the Tour Z6 unleashes new and powerful technologies that are guaranteed to improve your game immediately and inject more fun into it as well.

Vivid Display Technology (VDT) generates enhanced light transmission for dramatically sharper display resolution.

“VDT is amazing,” Novosel said. “Distance readings are HD crisp, and display 3D like lettering. It’s very cool.”

The Z6 has multiple precision intensity settings so users can adjust the vivid red display to their personal preference. Another exciting feature of the new Tour Z6 is the E.S.P (Extreme Speed Precision) Technology, which according to Jordan Vermillion, director of product development, allows for better accuracy and faster processing.

“The Tour Z6 is the most accurate and most compact rangefinder we’ve ever developed,” Vermillion said.

Boasting extraordinary accuracy up to one-half yard, and distance display up to one-tenth of a yard, this powerful and compact rangefinder makes sure you have the best and most dependable distance measurements possible.

“You’re looking at the technology of the Pro 1M packed into a smaller size than the Tour V2,” Novosel said. (The Z6 is about the size of a deck of playing cards. Look for GolfWRX exclusive pictures early this week).

The Tour Z6 is also waterproof, with RainGuard HD lens coating, and features an improved rubber armored metal housing designed to provide maximum protection and unparalleled grip comfort.

Benefiting accomplished golfers and weekend warriors alike, the much anticipated new 2012 Tour Z6 Laser Rangefinder debuts in early April at a retail price of $399.

Indi Golf introduces two new putter designs featuring the brand’s Colossal Sweet Spot Technology

Published

Indi Golf Alisson Black Matte

Indi Golf has unveiled two new putter designs in two different finishes named Allison and Ramone.

The Allison and Ramone flatsticks come in both black and chrome finishes and contains the brand’s Colossal Sweet Spot Technology which, according to the company, eliminates miss-hits no matter where the ball is struck on the face.

Speaking on the new additions, Rob Lang, General Manager, Indi Golf, stated

“After designing wedges for the past few years, the putter category was the most logical next step for us in our mission to help golfers make their short game their best game.

“We’ve been developing the technology for these putters for over a year now and we’re confident they will help golfers make more putts. We’re excited to finally introduce them.”

The Allison putter is a face-balanced mid-size mallet, which features a double-bend shaft which aims at creating a perfectly face-balanced putter for the player that uses a straight back, straight through putting stroke.

The Ramone, a toe-hang blade putter, features a 30-degree toe-hang, which is aimed towards the player that favors an arced putting stroke.

As well as the Colossal Sweet Spot Technology, both of the new additions from Indi Golf are precision CNC milled and are constructed from Aircraft Grade Aluminum. The flat-sticks also contain toe and heel tungsten weighting, designed for increased stroke stability and maximum feel for ultimate consistency.

Forum Thread of the Day: “How often to replace your wedges?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from cookszn who asks WRXers how often do they change their wedges. Cookszn also asks the same question focusing on those who don’t have the fortune to be able to play the game in winter months, and our members have been sharing their thoughts, with many following a variety of different philosophies.

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.

  • MattyO1984: “Lob Wedge, every year to 18 months. Sand and Gap, every 24-36 months.”
  • dlygrisse: “Every 2-3 years. For me, it’s more of a visual check, if the chrome is wearing off and the grooves are getting a bit dodgy. I play about 10 months a year on average. For me, though, it really depends on how much you practice. If you are just playing golf 20-40 times a year or so you really won’t get much wear. But if you practice bunker shots and work on your short game on a weekly basis, then you may need new wedges every season.”
  • Oz Max: “I’ve had my set for 5 years now, and they still spin a lot, enough to zip back a few meters on a pitch shot (when I make a good contact that is!). Though I loom after them, clean the grooves regularly and use one of those regrooving tools, they are perfect to keep the edges sharp every so often.”
  • Zigzog: “I am using some Cleveland 588 Tour Action at the moment, at least 15 years old – they still spin plenty for me. New wedges will give more initial bite, but this will stop after a handful of rounds IMO – so for me, I am more comfortable with what I know.”
  • RichieHunt: “About once every 12-15 months.”
  • Roody: “I play about 100 rounds a season. I just replaced my 60-degree wedge last week. The previous one was 5 years old. I have a groove sharpener that I use on the wedges once or twice a season. Seems to keep them “good enough” for my needs.”
