Spotted: True Temper Dynamic Gold AMT shafts

Published

on

True Temper’s Dynamic Gold AMT shafts are designed with what the company is calling “ascending mass technology,” creating a set of iron shafts that gets progressively heavier as golfers move from their long irons to wedges.

The 3-iron shaft is the lightest in the set, and each subsequent shaft gets three grams heavier as the set progresses. That results in wedge shafts that weigh between 125 and 130 grams, depending on flex, which is the standard weight of True Temper’s most popular Dynamic Gold iron shafts: R300, S300 and X100.

[quote_box_center]What we found, particularly in the longer irons, is that they launched a little higher just by virtue of the increased speed [from lighter weight],” said Chad Hall, True Temper’s Vice President of Global Sales. “That’s true for most players. From a wedge perspective, you’re talking about the same exact performance.” [/quote_box_center]

The AMT shafts use the company’s variable wall technology (VWT), which allows engineers to manipulate the wall thicknesses throughout the entirety of a shaft to reach the desired weight. They still maintain what Hall called the “Dynamic Gold DNA,” however, meaning that they offer a very similar balance point and trajectory as the original models.

Hall expects the new shafts to be popular with better golfers, including tour players, as well as golfers who felt the Dynamic Gold shafts were too heavy for them to be effective in their long and mid irons.

The Dynamic Gold AMT is a tour-only product at this point with no immediate plans for release. Golfers should expect to see them in stores in 2016, Hall said.

    i just think they have too many S200 and dynalite shafts they need to get rid of.

    What’s the difference in these and the “DG PRO” ..”Progressive” ..starts at 125g in the wedge and drops 3 grams per club to the 3 iron at around 100ish..kick point gets progressively lower from wedge to long iron .. Or is the white label Tour issue also descends in weight but maintains the same kick ??

      The DG Pro is really like the flighted PX shafts, where as the weight is pretty close, but the flight is not. These don’t mention anything about flight, but the assumption is it would be similar as a lighter shaft in the longer irons may produce higher shots.

      If they put the PRO and AMT in a room together with some Barry White, you might have the ultimate shaft; progressive weighting getting heavier for the shorter clubs and having higher launching long irons with more piercing short irons.

    So basically this is the same idea as the Ping AWT shafts from a couple years back

    So would I be correct on assuming these are parallel tip?

      No, they would be tapered so as to fit OEM iron heads

    I rather go and get MOI fitted by a professinal club maker/fitter. But who am I to judge!? Golf and feeling is highly individual, TT DG AMT might be a great success…. 🙂

    It basically pretends to be an MOI-matched built set of irons.

    So am I wrong in thinking that these are a kinda flighted lighter DG, like an ascending weighted Tour Concept?

    This shaft sounds like a comeback of the True Temper Tri-Gold shaft from the 1990’s. That shaft had ascending weight and progressive bend point. It was a very good shaft but never really caught on.

Puma unveils new Ignite Fasten8 golf shoe

Published

on

Puma Golf has today introduced the newest addition to its popular spikeless franchise: the Ignite Fasten8.

The new Ignite Fasten8 ($120) family are designed to provide wearers added stability with a new, exacting fit in multiple sleek designs, featuring both a traditional lace-up style and Puma’s proprietary DISC technology, and also a PRO version with a microfiber upper. The Fasten8 lace version is also available in several eye-catching colorways for women ($100).

The lineup is led by Puma’s new Fasten8 Fit System, which consists of 8 interior webbing support straps that are integrated into the lacing system. The 8 webbing straps are secured from underneath the foot, and when the laces, or Disc, are tightened, each of the Fasten8 straps aims to deliver an exceptionally secure, personalized fit for players with all foot shapes and sizes.

The Fasten8 also features PWRCAGE (a TPU saddle integrated with midfoot support webbing straps), and PWRFRAME (an ultra-thin TPU frame placed in high-stress areas) technologies, both of which are designed to contribute to greater overall stability during the swing and increased comfort while walking. 

Speaking on the new additions from Puma, Andrew Lawson, PLM, Footwear, Puma Golf said

“The new Ignite Fasten8 shoe continues to deliver the cool, classic style that has become synonymous with PUMA Golf, in a popular mix of colorways that will appeal to a wide range of playersWhen you combine our innovative new Fasten8 Fit System with Puma’s other impressive footwear technologies you have a shoe that delivers true versatility, style and performance, all while ensuring the perfect fit and feel for every golfer.” 

Enhanced comfort and performance in a variety of turf conditions (or even for wear off the course) is provided by a strategically designed, organically-altered traction pattern in the sole, as well as IGNITE Foam in the midsole, which bids to yield energy return and cushioning throughout the course of 18 holes.

The Fasten8 shoe also features a non-stretch, waterproof and breathable mesh construction in the forefoot area, which bids to provide versatile performance in varying weather conditions and SoleShield, a micro-thin TPU film that is vacuum-formed around the midsole to make cleaning off dirt and debris quick and easy. In addition, the Fasten8 Pro features a microfiber upper for style and performance.

Puma’s Ignite Fasten8 and Ignite Fasten8 Disc are available in six colorways in sizes 7-14. Ignite Fasten8 Pro is available in five colorways in the same size range, while Ignite Fasten8 Women’s is available in sizes 5.5-12 in four colorways.

You can check out all of the color offerings over at pumagolf.com. The Fasten8 family will be available online and at retail from March 2.

Vokey launches new Slate Blue finish on SM8 wedges

Published

on

Looks are important when it comes to having confidence in your clubs, and with that in mind, Titleist is releasing a new Slate Blue finish for its Vokey SM8 wedge line.

The slate blue finish is applied just like a standard PVD (physical vapor deposition) finish but involves using a unique material that increases the production time. The result of the material and additional time is a rich deep finish that not only looks great but also has a longer life compared to traditional PVD.

“Very often, wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last,” said Vokey. “At the same time, the most durable finishes often aren’t stunning. Slate Blue combines the two. Not only will golfers love their wedge when they see it in the shop, the finish will last through the course of normal play.”

When it comes to technology the Slate Blue Vokey wedges offer the same progressive forward center of gravity for increased MOI and ball flight control, along with 100-percent inspected spin milled grooves.

Price and availability

Vokey Design SM8 Slate Blue wedges will be available in golf shops starting March 19, and will be available in all 23 loft, bounce, and grind options in both right and left-handed.

The wedges will be priced at $199 in their stock configuration which features a True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 and custom BV Wings New Decade Multi Compound grip from Golf Pride.

Additional customizations such as character stamping are available for an additional fee.
