Introducing the new 2017 Bridgestone Tour-B JGR Series Woods & Irons – Bridgestone is flying under the radar with many new Japan releases like the CBP & X-HI series irons along with their latest JGR line.  The general theme I get from looking over the tech and specs of this new series is that it caters to the decent amateur player almost a more forgiving version of their original Tour B models.  The line up consists of a new driver, fairway wood, hybrid and two new forged irons.  I am also thankful these have fixed hosel’s.  Bridgestone offers optional wrench and weights for those who want to tinker with bias and balance.  Lots more on these new BS clubs!  Follow the jump…

The New PRGR EGG Series Woods and Irons!

20747014_10209672282220913_716167700_o

Introducing the new PRGR EGG Series!  New Driver, fairway woods, utilities, irons, and even golf balls are scheduled to release mid September.  I have had demos for weeks now and have hit them we will be posting individual club reviews this and next week.  Needless to say I was very impressed and know these will fit a wide segment of amateur players who prioritize distance, forgiveness and technology over all else.

PRGR has been doing the EGG series for many years known as super long,  higher launching and forgiving golf clubs.  PRGR as a brand really pushes the envelope when it comes to design beating to a different drum compared to other golf companies,  they measure information differently and use unexpected solutions to solve problems for the player.  From measuring grip speed over club head speed to using open faces on most of their clubs (measured differently) PRGR also seems to patent a lot of their technology and sometimes feature multiple patents in a single product.  The parent co. of PRGR also known as Pro Gear in Japan is the Yokohama Rubber Co.  They make tires,  hoses,  industrial materials for all types of craft.   Follow the Jump to get a brief run down of of the new Egg 2017!

A-GRIND’s New Type-D Driver

DSC09375-Edit

A-Grinds longest and most forgiving driver has just been released.  It’s called the Type-D 460.  Stock out of the box it comes with open face angles.  1* on the 10.5 and 0.5* on the 9.5 loft.  This driver features a 6-4Ti forged face with a 6-4Ti cast body.   The concept is simple but proven,  variable wall thickness and a thinner crown to drop the center of gravity lower.  What is not proven ( in my opinion ) that is part of the design is that channel on the sole near the face,  many brands claim increased ball speeds from this and while it is true it’s minimal and so small that it’s no guarantee to improve distance.  Ready for more pics?  Follow the Jump…

Seven ST Wedge User Review

Seven ST Wedge..   yup that’s the one!   Sold out before everyone knew of their existence!!  Here is a quick review for those who missed out on these fabulous wedges the first time around.    These wedges are too good to be considered “Previous generation.”  :)   Putting it down on the hitting mat, the head has a teardrop silhouette which will appeal to the traditionalist players alike.    The head is very compact and looks highly versatile which should please the most demanding of wedge connoisseurs out there.   These wedges are targeted for mid to low handicap players.     Click for more …

A-GRIND V2 Wedge / SANYO STEEL

DSC07721-Edit

Today we have the A-GRIND V2 Wedge the second wedge from A-GRIND to be released which happens to look very similar to the original.   How is it different? The new V2 Wedge is made of Sanyo Steel from Japan which is a special S25C that has a carbon content of only 0.24% the purpose of this is to improve the feel at impact.  We have not experienced anything noticeable where a player would say wow what type of metal is this?  but we do think this wedge feels awesome at impact.   The grind remains unchanged from it’s predecessor  a tried and true sole grind that works with low bounce and minimal camber with a slight leading edge relief to help you open it up the face.  Ready for more photos and info?  Follow the jump….

The New Fujikura Speeder Evolution IV

Fujikura EVO IV Shaft

When a customer comes to us looking for a great shaft on a budget we often recommend the Fujikura Evolution Series.  Within this single speeder line most golfers can find the proper bend profile and characteristics for their swing.  I’m always confident in recommending the Evo series because Fujikura explains in detail what materials and technologies they use.  Many brands now days especially the ones built in the forums market as premium but can’t back it up.

This is the Evolution IV model that is not released yet.  As usual TSG has the scoop for you in detail breaking down why this shaft is an absolute beast and worth considering.  Follow the jump for a break down on how its made…

Seven x Benock Putter User Review

 

Benock Putters Japan5

Alright,  putter lovers, gather around for my review of the Seven x Benock Putter.!! Smooth and balanced stroke is easy with this putter.   Feel at impact is.. Ummmm  “PERRRRFECT” .. how do they do it?    I always thought CNC machined irons and putters would feel soul less and cold and that manual grinding by an experienced craftsman was the only way to make putters and irons lively and special.   Click here for more…
