The new PRGR Egg drivers just released for sale on september 11th, a few weeks ago in the blog we covered the Super Egg non conforming version, today we are showing you pre release photos of the conforming version known as the 2015 Egg Driver ( no super ).
This deep faced 460cc driver holds nothing back in terms of technology and materials, PRGR uses a titanium (Ti-6Al-4V) face with a titanium (Ti-8Al-1V-1Mo) body. Available in 2 lofts 10 & 11 degree’s the standard face angle is listed at 2* open but the driver looks and plays very square, this is due to the unique methods prgr uses to design, manufacture, and measure their clubs. More photos after the Jump…
Gradista Golf Driver -When TSG offers new brands we usually look for a particular type, brands that have a full line up and release products annually, brands that have a unique difference about them like top of the line materials from Japan and ultimately brands that produce products that perform, in this situation Grandista Golf only has 1 product in their line up ( with 2 variants ) so why did we decide to offer it? Because after a few whacks at the ball it was obviously a performer and we are proud to announce our relationship with them.
Not only is the Grandista Driver unique but it’s really well thought out in it’s design, one of my favorite things is that they use DAT55G from Daido steel co in Japan, yes look for the “G” when shopping DAT55 because that’s the one you want this material is one of TSG members favorite on drivers it produces slightly faster ball speeds than the others and of course costs a little more as well. Lots to share on this excellent excellent driver so follow the jump….
PRGR will release 2 new drivers in October both labeled Egg one is non-conforming and named Super-Egg (gold) the other conforms simply called the new egg driver (red).
It’s not often big brands release anything non-conforming yet PRGR realizes the vast majority of golfers don’t play in sanctioned events, anyhow PRGR has pushed the COR beyond 0.85 in the Super Egg. Follow the Jump for it…
A-Grind 440 Driver has been released and is now listed in the TSG ProShop, I must admit I wasn’t too excited for this one as in my opinion the smaller headed, harsh feeling, and not forgiving at all Classic 350 A-Grind driver would not last in a discerning players bag for a full season it was more it’s sex appeal that drove sales of that model but now this 440cc version is an entirely different beast this one I can see in the bags of many it’s looks are simple and sleek with no external weights or adjustable adapters and best of all it fits a wide range of skill levels.

BEYOND POWER by Ryoma Golf is a shaft specially designed to produce the highest smash factor possible. Ryoma offers excellent standard shafts that compliment the Maxima heads even better than aftermarket shafts. This new Beyond Power utilizes a new technology we are seeing used more frequently in the Japan Golf Shaft Industry known as “multi-kick” this allows companies that have used it like Fujikura and Jbeam to produce what Ryoma calls “Infinity Flex” which is supposed to add an average of 2.7mph to your head speed.

Available in Silver or Gold with the difference being the Gold is non conforming aka HOT and only available in 10.5 with a 0.5* closed face angle.
The Alpha SLE (silver) also has a 9.5* loft and comes standard at square face, both are 460cc’s with a 58* lie angle. So far we have tested the new RomaRo Alpha Silver in a couple of different shafts including the new TRPX Aura Stiff and also the Basileus AAA 60 Stiff so as far as premium shaft options go we have tried them.

2 Drivers have taken the lime light recently and both are made by J-Beam, this all started during my fitting at Seven Dreamers where I asked what clients heads do they see the best performance during their in depth analysis and the lead engeneer blurted Jbeam 435 & 535… Not sure if he wanted to let that out but the answer came quick so I’ll take it! Why is it important who this man thinks produces a good driver? Because his job is analyzing heads and designing shafts to work together and at his place of work he gets to see the absolute best clubs money can buy. Since then the new and limited Black out 435 and even more rare ZY-11 have become two of TSG’s top selling drivers and boy am I happy these are catching on because now many players are expereiencing something very different and totally unique to what they are used to.

Here’s something new & special that we don’t see very often, A Honma 4-Star Upgrade but on the new Tour Wold 727 Series club. Many have heard of Honma star rated clubs and shafts but the majority still doesn’t quite understand how the program works or how it’s better than the standard versions so I figured it’s time to explain this and there is no better way than to test it myself on range and course.
So what makes the 5 Star better than the 4 or the 3 better than the 2? Follow the Jump to learn why Honma offers these pricey upgrades and what they do to better performance for the player…
