New Equipment Overload at the BMW Championship!



We spotted an overwhelming amount of new equipment this week at the BMW Championship, so much that we thought it was necessary to organize them in a single story for your viewing pleasure.

Check out the latest gear launched this week at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, Ill., where 70 PGA Tour players are battling for one of 30 spots in the season-ending Tour Championship.

Exotics CB Pro and XCG7 Fairway Woods


According to Tour Edge, the CB Pro fairway woods are the high-end, high-performing clubs that the company had in mind when it created the Exotics brand.

The limited-edition fairway woods are based on Exotics’ popular CB2 line of fairway woods. They feature combo-brazed beta titanium faces and a new “Slip Stream” sole that Tour Edge says improves turf interaction regardless of a golfer’s angle of attack. They come with Fujikura’s new Motore Speeder 757 shaft (the new Speeder 661 is also available), and will retail for the hefty price of $499.

Graphite Design Tour AD-MT shafts


Just a few months ago, Graphite Design released its popular Tour AD-DI shaft in a new color scheme, black and white. For Graphite Design’s newest shaft, the Tour AD-MT, the company went the opposite direction, complementing it with a neon-yellow-and-white color scheme.

According to Bill McPherson, vice president of Pros’ Choice Shafts (the exclusive North American distributor for Graphite Design), the AD-MT is based on the stiffer-profile AD-DI and AD-BB shafts played by several PGA Tour players including Adam Scott, Ryo Ishikawa and Kevin Chappell. McPherson said that it was too early to say any more about the specifics of the shaft, other than it is slated to hit shelves abound Nov. 15.

Matrix HX3 “White Tie” Hybrid Shafts


Matrix’s new Ozik Altus hybrid shafts are based on the company’s popular line of new Ozik woods shafts released this year: the X3 “White Tie,” Q3 “Red Tie” and M3 “Black Tie.”

Like the wood series, the hX3 White Tie is the company’s highest-launching shaft and the hM3 Black Tie is the lowest-launching shaft. The hQ3 Red Tie fits the golfers in the middle, encouraging a medium trajectory.

Nike Method “Mod” Putters


We’re not sure what to say about the four Nike Method “Mod” putters we spotted this week on the practice green at Conway Farms.

  • The “Mod 90” is face-balanced mallet putter
  • The Mod-30 (pictured above) is an Anser-style blade
  • The Mod-60 is a heel-shafted half-mallet putter
  • The Mod-00 is a bullseye-style putter.

Each features a red-colored material in the heel- and toe-sections, which we’re assuming helps increase the MOI of the putters. They also have high-end milled finish, with milling marks that run perpendicular to the target line at address.

Odyssey Metal-X Prototype


Chris Kirk was caught gaming this Odyssey prototype putter, a 100-percent-milled design with a face modeled after the company’s Metal-X insert putters. The putter’s sole is stamped with Odyssey’s prototype question mark stamps, which have often indicated a model Odyssey is seriously considering bringing to retail.

Instead of the usual “Odyssey” stamping on the back of the putter, Kirk’s putter features the Odyssey logo, as well as the removable weights Odyssey offered in its high-end Protype iX putters.

 New Ping TR Putters


In late May, Ping added to its already robust line of Scottsdale TR putters with the Nome TR (Click here to read our full story on the Nome TR putter). On Nov. 1, three new models of the Scottsdale TR series will become available: the Craz-E, Anser T and a counterbalanced model, the Senita B.

  • The Craz-E looks identical to the original model that was released in 2004, but it has a black PVD finish and Ping’s new True Roll insert, which features deep grooves on the middle of the face and more shallow grooves on the heel and toe areas to help marry the ball speed of impacts across the face.
  • The Anser T (pictured above) is a variation of Ping’s Anser 2 putter, with an alignment bar in the middle of the back flange.
  • The Senita B has a 400-gram head, 30 grams heavier than the standard model. Like other counterbalanced models, it measures 38 inches, but it is meant to be held a few inches short of the butt-end of the grip. It’s outfitted with an extra long 17-inch grip and a 50-gram counterweight to help add stability to a golfer’s stroke.

TaylorMade SpeedBlade irons

TaylorMade’s SpeedBlade irons are the company’s latest line of distance irons. They have a longer, wider slot in the sole and a new construction that provide more face flexibility than the RocketBladez irons.

Watch the video above for more information, and click here to read our story about TaylorMade’s SpeedBlade event on Sept. 9.

Wilson FG 100 Blade Irons


Wilson Staff’s new FG Tour 100 blade irons were inspired by the company’s legendary 1971 “Button Back” model. While they incorporate features of that iron, such as “Fluid Feel” technology, a TPU insert that runs from the end of the shaft to the bottom of the irons’ soles, they’re a modern blade made to the specifications of the most discerning golfers.

The irons are forged from 8620 steel, and like the 1971 Button Backs, they have a high-luster nickel-chrome finish complemented with black-and-gold logoing.

The irons won’t be available until early in 2014, but they already have a win under their belt. They were used by the University of Illinois Head Golf Coach Mike Small to win his 10th Illinois PGA Championship.

        That’s just cuz the black paint on the speedbladez isn’t drying quick enough. It’ll be the speedbladez black pro tp edition, and pro’s can hit 7 irons 211 yards instead of 200 yards, but they won’t bag them because then what would they do within 150 yards.

      I agree. TM is releasing stuff so fast that it’s hard to keep up with. I have ceased buying TM stuff.

      Come on man, give them a break.
      Their sticker printers are dead.
