Spotted: Dustin Johnson testing a new TaylorMade Stealth 2 driver

Published

on

Our Andrew Tursky was out on the range at the U.S. Open and spotted Dustin Johnson testing out a new driver. We last got his WITB at the PGA Championship in May and he was playing the original TaylorMade Stealth Plus (10.5 degrees).

This week he was testing out a higher-lofted TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus and Tursky was able to get the detailed specs on the new club. At this time DJ said he wasn’t sure if the new driver would make it into the bag on Thursday, so we will have to keep our eyes peeled.

New Level launches new 480-DB irons, blending performance and forgiveness

Published

on

New Level has been making some really good golf equipment since the company started up in 2018. Offering irons that are more geared towards the better player, precision has been a fundamental philosophy for New Level in creating irons and wedges.

The 480 line of irons has been the flagship of the brand, and the newest member of that team is the 480-DB iron that is now open to pre-orders. A new cavity design is what the whole 480 line is about, and the 480-DB takes advantage of that with added ball speed and a larger sweet spot.

For players who require their irons to offer the best feel, rest assured the DB is a fully forged (from 1020 carbon steel) one-piece golf club. No multi-piece, hollow design with this iron.

While the 480-DB is the next generation of the popular 902-OS, New Level didn’t follow the current trend in golf by chasing distance with the new iron. They actually weakened the lofts on the 480-DB with the spec sheet showing a 33-degree 7-iron and 45-degree pitching wedge. These lofts allow the DB to have less offset while still offering consistent distance off the face.

A traditional design was also at the forefront of the new irons to make sure that golfers with an eye for detail can look down at them with confidence that they will perform under any condition.

 

A weight low in the back cavity will allow their master club builders to dial in the perfect weight for the golfer, no matter the length or shaft being used. New Level believes that the new 480-DB is one of the most forgiving one-piece forged irons on the market today. A pre-worn leading edge on the sole should get through the turf quickly and with reduced digging for better turf interaction.

You can pre-order the New Level 480-DB right now on the New Level website.

Snell Golf launches new 2024 Prime lineup of golf balls offering ‘performance for all’

Published

on

Snell Golf has today introduced its new 2024 Prime golf ball lineup.

Per Snell, the new lineup focuses on offering urethane technology at an affordable price, while optimizing the golf ball performance based on player swing speed, or a more frequently known data point, 7-iron distance.

Regarding the new release, Dean Snell, owner and CEO, said

“As our company has evolved over the last 9 years we continue to learn more about our customers and what we can do to make golf ball selection easy for the amateur golfer. Sometimes there is just too much data, described as ‘paralysis by analysis,’ leaving many golfers feeling overwhelmed. The new lineup is positioned to make it easy for our players to choose their model based on swing speed, or an even simpler metric of their 7-iron distance. Each model is designed to give those player profiles total overall performance and do so at a price point that makes sense for their game and their wallet.”

Prime 2.0, Prime 3.0, and Prime 4.0 offer three performance levels and three price points to fit golfers of different capabilities.

Prime 2.0

A new, two-piece urethane golf ball ball designed for slower swing speed golfer. A high-speed core is designed to offer players higher spin and higher launch to promote overall carry distance. This works with the urethane cover for higher short-game spin than other two-piece balls on the market, according to the company. The new XV3 Urethane cover aims to provide very soft feel, excellent durability, and superior greenside control.

Price: $24.99 per dozen.

Prime 3.0

Total performance for a wide range of golfers, this is a three-piece urethane golf ball that evolves from the previous “MTB PRIME” and “MTB BLACK” models, designed to provide high ball speed and low long game spin that most players desire. The mantle layer is designed for controlling iron spin to mid-high levels needed to execute every shot in the bag, while the brand’s NEW XV3 Urethane cover aims to provide softer feel, ultimate greenside control, and improved durability.

Price: $32.99 per dozen.

Prime 4.0

Designed for mid to high-swing speed players, this model is a four-piece urethane golf ball designed to provide golfers with leading performance. An ultra fast core and low spin aims to offer superior distance, while the mantle layers work to offer higher short iron spin and optimal launch for long irons. The XV3 Urethane cover provides ultimate greenside control, excellent durability, and a slightly firmer feel on this model.

Price: $34.99 per dozen.

The 2024 Prime 2.0 and Prime 3.0 golf ball models will be offered in a high visibility white and optic yellow immediately, shipping April 22n on SnellGolf.com. The Prime 4.0 will also be on pre-sale in white on April 22, shipping May 1. Yellow 4.0 model expected to be available June 1.
