Tour Edge Exotics CBX fairways, hybrids and “Iron Woods”

Published

on

We spotted Tour Edge’s new Exotics CBX fairway woods, hybrids and “Iron Woods” at the 2017 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

While Tour Edge is yet to officially comment on the fairway woods or its new “iron woods,” the company has provided information on the CBX hybrids, which are already in play on the Champions Tour. Brandt Jobe used a CBX hybrid in route to a T2 finish at the Senior Players Championship in mid-July, and the company says several other Champions Tour players currently have a CBX hybrid in their bag.

The CBX hybrid is unique in that, like drivers, it has a titanium club face. Its multi-material design merges the beta-titanium club face with a hyper-steel body through a process called combo brazing, which the company says helps ensure exact weight tolerances. The hybrid also has a carbon-composite sole to create the higher, more forward center of gravity Tour Edge desired. According to the company, the result is “the lowest-spinning, exceptionally versatile hybrid capable of delivering tour-level distance and performance.”

The CBX hybrid will come stock with either a Project X HZRDUS Black shaft or a Mitsubishi Kuro Kage Silver Dual-Core TiNi. Available lofts are 16, 18 and 20 degrees. They will sell for $249.99 and will begin shipping on September 15.

    I like their clubs and they are long but, at $250 I’ll stick with my F6 hybrids.

    Generally great clubs, definitely interested in testing them out. Only problem is they don’t hold their value, so they can be had for cheap the next year.

    Fugly on the bottom, I don’t get how they can make it look like 20 cent K-Mart designs like this, but the shapes from the top look good, so I’ll give them a hit and see what happens

    Think they will do well in the hands of many golfers. Good luck I’ve always been looking for these clubs but can’t find them.

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.
