Spotted: LA Golf Malibu X putter with a new face insert

Published

on

In its short history, LA Golf is well-known for pushing the limits of design with carbon fiber. Its putter heads are made from forged carbon in a bid to remove as much mass as possible from the center of the putter head, dial in the feel, and reduce harsh vibration. High-density weights are placed far out on the perimeter to increase MOI and make the head as stable as possible on mishits.

LA Golf usually uses 303 stainless steel for the face with Descending Loft Technology and horizontal grooves to keep putt launch and spin consistent. A stainless steel face also helps give the putter a little more feel and a sound at impact that golfers are used to. However, we spotted a new face on an LA Golf Malibu X mallet at the 2024 Cognizant Open this week that looks to be a little more of a copper color. LA Golf isn’t giving out any details just yet, but if it is a type of copper alloy, it might offer a slightly softer feel or reduced sound at impact.

From the Forums: How are you liking TaylorMade’s Qi10 fairway woods?

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing TaylorMade’s new Qi10 fairway woods. WRXer ‘ace036’ plans on testing them in the next few weeks, saying: “from how they look from address and frame the ball is much more appealing to my eye versus my current Paradym fairway woods.” And our members have been sharing their positive feedback in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Edwardsr: “I got fit into the Qi10 core model with Ventus TR Black 8X and it’s absolutely amazing for me.During the fitting with my 12-15 swings with it, it was the most efficient combo I’ve ever tested, tons of 1.48 smash and 3 or 4 1.49 smash (which I don’t think I’ve ever gotten on 3 wood on a launch monitor).”
  • MiloMalt: “No complaints and so far only high praise for my Qi10 Tour 3 and 5 wood. I’m getting great numbers and a nice penetrating ball flight with great height whereas with my old TSi2 4 wood it was spinny and ballooning and short because of that.”
  • courcy75: “The Qi10 Tour 3 wood I just put in play has been outstanding for me. Finally found something I like as much as the 07 burner tp.”
