Power Play Caiman X2 Tour Irons Receive Golf Tips Mag “Editors’ Pick”!

In the August issue of Golf Tips Magazine the Power Play Caiman X2 Tour Irons received an “Editors’ Picks” writeup. Golf Tips magazine is one the top 3 golf magazines in the industry and their acknowledgement only adds to the growing positive reviews received about the Power Play Caiman X2 Tour Irons.

Here’s what Golf Tips Magazine said about the X2 Tour Irons:

“We think these are some of the best-looking irons this year, and they just so happen to perform beautifully, as well. The Caiman X2 Tour Irons ($33/head) feature a copper-toned PVD finish, a muscle-back design and a top-line profile that better players will love. In our trial, shotshaping was a breeze and although not forged, they sure feel like it. We also dig the near endless options of custom grips and shafts to choose from at Hireko Golf.

The writeup can be viewed on the Golf Tips website here.

Make no bones about it, the Caiman X2 Tour irons with the razor thin topline, low offset and the tremendous amount of mass concentrated directly behind the sweet spot for that unmistakable pure feel at impact are specifically designed for the better player. The luxurious copper PVD plating bestows a one-of-a-kind appearance.

Yes Putters Now Available at Hireko Golf!

81 Total Tour Wins.

Owners of the patented C-Groove Technology.

Robot testing was also conducted to compare consistency of distance and line for balls struck with identical force numerous times on a 50′ putt. These tests substantiated the fact that the C-Groove putter, due to its truer roll, was more consistent in distance and line. By hitting the ball

Yes! Golf is the emerging leader in the field of advanced putter design and related technology. Today, Yes! putters, with C-Groove Technology are played on every major professional tour in the U.S, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Yes! putters are steadily helping hundreds of tour pros and thousands of amateur golfers worldwide reach their highest putting potential.

How C-Grooves Work

By gripping the back of the ball and lifting it forward on impact, the C-Grooves of a Yes putter create almost instant stabilization, causing the ball to roll forward much sooner than any other putter. In fact, as much as six times sooner.

The naked eye can’t see it, but when a regular putter face impacts a golf ball it results in loft causing skidding, side- and even back-spinning before the ball can begin rolling forward on the green. So the ball is more apt to be affected by any miniscule aberration it encounters. Even when struck on the right line, these effects are the principal causes of missed putts

The C-Groove on every Yes! putter solves this problem better than any other putter on the market. Which is why it’s covered by multiple patents.

The secret is the 20-degree upward slant of the C-Groove’s concentric edges. Upon contact, these edges grip the ball surface and apply physical forces that simultaneously lift the ball out of its resting position and impart an over-the-top rolling motion.

The illustration to the right is a detailed summary of multiple 20′ test putts as conducted by an independent testing firm. Using a putting robot and a 100-frame-per-second video camera, they were able to show how the C-Groove putter dramatically and consistently outperforms the putters of other major golf companies.

Balls struck with the Yes! C-Grooves invariably achieved forward roll quicker than balls struck by competitive putters which repeatedly skidded, skipped and spun before settling into forward roll in approximately 18 inches.

And the sooner a ball achieves smooth forward roll, the better the line it will have and the less likely it is to be affected by aberrations in the green. In short, more putts will drop in.

Even when struck up to a quarter of an inch off center, the C-Groove putter rolls the ball sooner and more consistently.

How Did You Stay Cool While Playing Golf in the Extreme Heat?

With record breaking temperatures being set on what seemed like a daily basis for the better part of the US this past week, golf courses and driving ranges remained opened for those brave enough to endure the blistering heat.  While parking lots were sparsely populated with cars, a few die hard golfers found means to enjoy a round of golf or try to hone their skills.

For those that like to walk like me, you have to be very careful not to overdo it and end up with some heat-related illness.  This is one time I would encourage riding in a cart or at least renting or using a push cart to take the load off.  The most important carry-ons in your bag are likely to be bottled water (or a sport’s drink) and maybe a few ice packs to keep them cool and you hydrated.  Save the malted hops until afterwards as they can dehydrate you. Don’t forget to wet a towel before heading to the first tee.  This isn’t necessarily to clean your clubs, but rather place around your neck between holes or while waiting for your next shot.

Apply sunscreen and wear loose fitting, light-colored clothing and a hat to protect you from the elements.  Even with low humidity you are bound to sweat which will make your hands and grip slip.  Remember to bring additional gloves to change out when they are no longer effective. Lastly, play golf early when it is coolest or possibly very late in the evening for a quick 9 when the sun subsides.  Remember to take it easy.  With the fewer number of players on the course, chances are you won’t be pushed by the group behind you.  If so, let them through as they probably don’t want to be out in the heat any longer than they have to.

For you die-hard golfers out there, share some of your secrets on how you beat the heat and still enjoy golf.
