Yesterday we were invited to a private viewing of the new 2015 line up by RomaRo Golf, each year Romaro arranges a beautiful conference room with hors d’oeuvres and staff to walk participants through the new items with detailed explanations, I actually prefer this style of release over a busy and noisy booth at the golf show hall across the street.
The new series is called the Ray Alpha Series and it’s pretty expansive including Drivers, Fairways, Hybrids, Irons, and Wedges on top of that RomaRo had all new grips, bags, and a new swiss stainless steel double milled putter. Let’s get started, follow the jump to read on…
The new TourStream Alcobaca is a stud, if you don’t know RomaRo makes some serious wedges, I’ve really enjoyed just about all of them since their beginning, the Alcobaca series is very forgiving and that sole grind is incredibly useful and easy to manipulate and RomaRo has added another step below the funky sole grind + copper under layer + laser milled face and while its forgiving and very “Neo” it’s for the better player as it has nearly no offset and a tear drop shape that’s somewhat Vokey like.
This was the product I’m personally looking forward to the most, by the way RomaRo has implemented forged cup faces into all it’s Ray Alpha woods for 2015 making them feel crunchy soft metallic and they all share more shallow face designs to get the ball up with easy, I will be putting a heavy shaft into a 3 wood for testing soon but its designed to make good clean contact on just about any turf condition. Will post Face & Profile Images in the forum so please have a look.
RomaRo is gunning to take out the XXIO Forged with the new Ray Alpha Irons, this is a mid to high capper club with a forged body like the XXIO BUT they went a step further with a Titanium face that’s uber hot and forgiving giving it an Edge over XXIO’s new iron. It’s got a bit more offset than the XXIO but we were told it’s better in all aspects performance wise.
The UT much like the Driver and Fairway Wood has a shallow face designed for big carry with a stable ball flight combined with optimal spin rates, RomaRo has also focused on shape and sole curvature to reduce turf drag.
The new Swiss Stainless Steel Hexagon Putter features a double milled face with a design very similar to what they had in the past, will post more pics in the TSG forum shortly. Also below we have a few shots of some of their latest accessories. It’s been busy with the show and I wanted to get these photos out quickly as we consider this a very well rounded and full release by one of our favorite makers. Stay Tuned for more…
