Puma’s IGNITE shoes, now available in three different models

Published

on

Puma has established itself as a household name in the golf shoe market, consistently combining the comfort, performance and style that golfers enjoy. As golf fashion has become more hip and athletic, Puma has been at the forefront of the movement. And its latest entry into the market is the Ignite shoe line, consisting of TITANTOUR Ignite, Ignite Spikeless and TITANTOUR Ignite Premium.

With its new line of shoes, Puma introduces “Ignite” foam in the midsoles, said to provide energy return, responsiveness, added comfort and cushioning.

Check out each of the models below, and visit Puma’s website for more information.

Ignite Spikeless ($120)

Spikeless shoes have become popular for golfers in recent years because of their casual comfort, both on and off the golf course. Puma’s latest, the Ignite Spikeless, incorporate the energy-responsive Ignite foam in its sole, and GripZone traction on the soles, by way of 39 hexagonal and 24 chevron-shaped spikes for multi-directional traction, according to Puma.

With a comfort collar around the top of the shoe and full-grain leather in the toe, the multi-material shoe looks cool, and promises comfort and performance, too.

They’re currently available in three color ways: (Green-White-Blue), (White, Gray, Red) and Black-Black-White).

TITANTOUR Ignite ($160)

Puma’s TITANTOUR Ignite shoes are for golfers who want a more traditional style of shoe, but they’re still packed with technology for performance and comfort. In the sole of the shoe, the shoes have Ignite foam, a thermoplastic polyurethane “PWRframe” that encases the foam — providing stability, traction and durability — and traditional spikes for those that want more stability than the spikeless offering. They also use “DuoFlex” between the spikes, supporting the movement of your foot on different terrains and during the swing.

The shoes are made with a full-grain upper, and are currently available in three color ways; (Black-White-Gray), (White-Green-Blue) and (Black-Black-Gray).

TITANTOUR Ignite Premium ($190)

Puma’s TITANTOUR Ignite Premium have all of the technology as the TITANTOUR Ignite shoes, but offer a more premium look and feel. They’re made with a full-grain, aniline leather upper, with pigskin lining and heavy gauge thread. The Ignite Premiums also have a “PWRcool” sole system powered by Outlast that regulates temperature by absorbing moisture and releasing heat.

They’re also offered in three color ways; (Brown-Brown-Brown), (White-Gray-Black) and (Beige-Gray-Green), and will be available in mid-February, according to Puma’s website.

    Very disappointed in comfort. Neither is very good. Last years TitanTours were much better

      Did you try the Ignite Spikeless? I have the Biofusion Mesh from a few years back; today I tried on the Spikeless and I don’t think I’ve ever worn a shoe, golf or otherwise, that’s more comfortable. I was about to order a pair of black BioFly’s, but I’m sitting on it and getting the Ignites.

      I have had a pair of the Ignite Spikeless for three rounds and they are fantastic.

      Equivalent to the Eccom Biom for better than half price.

    The Bio lineup looks okay. The rest, meh… They look like something from Payless.

2023 Titleist Pro V1 golf balls secretly began tour seeding last week

Published

on

We’re used to seeing new equipment at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, and indeed it’s the tournament at which Titleist has begun tour seeding for the next iteration of the Pro V1 golf ball in the past. This year, however, staffers apparently couldn’t wait until Vegas and “tour validation,” Titleist’s term for the process of tour seeding and feedback, actually began at last week’s Sanderson Farms Championship.

According to Titleist, Garrick Higgo, M.J. Daffue, and Gary Woodland, who had tested prototype versions of the 2023 Pro V1 and Pro V1x, were clamoring to put the balls in play. Higgo (Pro V1), Daffue (Pro V1x), and Woodland (Pro V1x) became the first three players to game the 2023 models in competition.

This week, Titleist Golf Ball R&D reps Fordie Pitts and Jeff Beyers will be fitting players at TPC Summerlin.

Jordan Spieth had this to say about the development process behind the new Pro V1.

“The Pro V1 and ProV1x, as a whole, are the best balls in golf so it’s hard to say, ‘How are you going to possibly make that ball better when it’s already the best?’” said Jordan Spieth. “I think when you think of anything being the best, you’re really going against yourself then. You’re trying to beat your former self versus worrying about the competition. And I think Titleist does that. They continue to push being the best and continuing to stay No. 1 – and that’s a really difficult thing to do.”

Reigning Masters champion, Scottie Scheffler, described the paces he’ll be putting the new Pro V1 through:

“First thing I’ll always do is take them to the short game area. For me, that’s always the most important. From there I’ll go to the range and just look at numbers, carry, stuff like that. From there, I’ll go out on the course and just start hitting shots. So same thing I do in the short game area, have a few of my ball, have a few of the new ball and just try and hit the same shot and see how the ball reacts, see what it does in the wind and just go from there.”

“One shot that I’m always practicing is when I take some off of it. I need to see that it’s still the same (distance) gaps between my full shot and when I’m taking some off of it. When I’m practicing on the driving range, if I have a little mishit or if a shot doesn’t feel right…I usually have a really good feel for how far it actually carried. If my stock wedge is 140 and I’m trying to hit at 135, and maybe I catch a little bit off and I’m like, ‘man that really feels like 132,’ if it goes that distance, that’s really important to me. And that gives me a lot of faith in what that golf ball’s going to do.”

Stay tuned to GolfWRX for more on the 2023 Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x.

New Ping G430 drivers hit USGA Conforming List

Published

on

On Monday morning, Ping’s G430 lineup of drivers landed on the USGA Conforming List.

In apparent keeping with the G425 line breakdown — low spin, maximum MOI, draw-biased — the family looks to include the G430 LST, Max, and SFT drivers, all of which feature both right-handed and left-handed models.

Per the description on the USGA site, the LST driver contains a “carbonfly wrap” crown, with each new driver also featuring a weight port for adjustability and an apparently forged face ala the G425’s T9S+ forged face. This would suggest Ping may be implementing a carbon fiber crown and deviating from titanium.

Ping had no additional comment on the G430 drivers at this point, but with the clubs now deemed “conforming,” we wouldn’t be surprised to see them on the PGA Tour at this week’s Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

As well as the new lineup landing on the USGA Conforming List, GolfWRXers have spotted the new drivers on social media, with some photos appearing to show the new driver in a black/gray/yellow colorway.

Here’s what our members have been saying about the new additions from Ping in our forum, but make sure to check out the entire thread at the link below and have your say.

  • MakersMarsh3: “Sound and feel are AWESOME. The carbon fiber and crown are more of a grey to me??? Has the slight 2 tone to it. The 3W wood seems to be the biggest improvement.  I have a hard time looking down on them and I thought it looked sweet.”
  • belh22: “Love the color scheme personally.”
  • m9: “The head looks to be an MOI beast, and the tungsten weight at the back appears to be smaller than that of the G425.”
