Sneak Peek 2008

What?s great in 2008 can be yours right now!

sneak peekWilson Staff Spine Driver
In what may be the only driver with two crowns, the new Spine Driver is Wilson’s most exciting big stick to date. By removing the crown section to the left and right and retaining a strengthened center area, the Spine retains mass behind the golf ball for more power. Also cool is the stock UST HMOI shaft.

sneak peek Callaway Hyper X Driver
Since the days of the original Big Bertha, Callaway has been known as a leader in high-performance driver design. Recently, company engineers reached new highs with the development of the FT-5 and FT-i models, both of which featured a blend of titanium and lightweight carbon composite material. The company’s newest all-titanium model, the Hyper X, features the introduction of Hyperbolic Face Technology, which provides both a unique look and feel, as well as increased ballspeed. The Hyper X is available in regular ($299) and Tour ($329) models.

sneak peek Ping Karsten Series Putters
As the insert craze took off in putters, players were often divided into two groups—those who liked the feel of metal and those who preferred an insert. The Karsten Series from PING addresses this dilemma by combining the enhanced feel of an insert with the responsiveness of stainless steel. By placing an elastomer insert in the cavity of the putter, PING engineers also saved additional weight, which was then moved to the perimeter of the clubhead for a higher moment-of-inertia and greater forgiveness. Seven models available.

sneak peek Titleist Red X Putter
Refined with a “Charcoal Mist” coating, the Red X from Scotty Cameron has the look of a pricey sports car. Smooth lines and a solid feel, not to mention a nice alignment line, make the Red X a top pick for golfers who want added feel from a mallet.

sneak peek Tour Edge Bazooka GeoMax Irons
And you thought MOI was only for drivers! Tour Edge’s new GeoMax irons “look like a cavity back on steroids,” according to company president David Glod. With a sole as wide as 1.5 inches and two 15-gram tungsten weights screwed into its heel and toe, the GeoMax essentially becomes one giant sweet spot. A Thermal Plastic Elastomer coating in the cavity helps dampen vibration.
