Whether you use the two new lofts in the Dynacraft Driving Iron off the tee on short par 4’s or long par 3’s or hit them out of the fairway or rough, these will be more forgiving and hit the ball longer than the irons lying in a corner of your basement or garage.
Early this year we debuted the Dynacraft Driving Iron – an 18º hollow-bodied utility club with a special vacuum heat treated forged face design and a high C.O.R. We thought when we developed this club it would be a niche product for those that wanted a control club off of the tee for short par 4’s and who didn’t care for the look of a hybrid wood appearance. To our surprise, our sales forecasting was a wee bit off. We sold more in the first month than we anticipated for the entire year. We would like to say “Thanks” to our customers for that.
After we saw there was a demand and received feedback from our customers and distributors, we began tooling up additional lofts to go into this series of “driving irons”. This coming week, the companion 21 and 24 degree versions will be in stock and ready to sell.
What’s in a name?
OK, in hindsight we should have never called the original Dynacraft Driving Iron a “driving iron” if we ever considered adding additional lofts. DOH! After all, if you bought the original model and now want to add one or both of the new lofts to your bag, why carry multiple driving irons in the bag? We probably should have called them utility irons (or clubs) is all I am sayin’ to help bridge the gap between your fairway wood(s) and the more user-friendly mid irons. However, if you carry only one in your bag, whether it is the original 18º model or one of the new lofts, then I suppose it becomes your driving iron if it is the longest iron you carry.
What do the new lofts replace?
The original driving iron was considered a 2-iron for loft, length and tip trimming. The new 21º loft is a direct replacement for a #3-iron and the 24º would be the equivalent of a #4-iron.
Why are they better than a traditional iron?
Most golfers struggle with the #3 and 4-irons probably more so than any club in the bag. Golfers may blame the low loft or the longer assembly lengths, but then they replace those with hybrids which are oftentimes the same loft (or stronger) as well as longer in length. So that can’t be the reason for poor performance with longer irons. No, the blame is the lack of forgiveness as the vast majority of irons do not have their weight spread far enough around the perimeter.
Enter the Dynacraft Driving Irons. These are hollow-bodied construction like a hybrid for superior forgiveness. But let’s not forget about the reflexive, thin face which increases ball speed and distance that is not possible with a traditional iron possessing a much thicker face.
Is it time to switch?
Whether you use the two new lofts in this series off the tee on short par 4’s or long par 3’s or hit them out of the fairway or rough, these will be more forgiving and hit the ball longer than the irons lying in a corner of your basement or garage or those you are probably carrying in your bag that get used infrequently as you have little confidence in their performance. The Dynacraft Driving Iron series are additional options aside from hybrids or higher lofted fairway woods to replace these sometime forgotten clubs in the bag.
