Improve Your Chipping Technique with the Dynacraft Hindsight Chipper

Chili dips, flubs, dubs, double-hits, the old Vince Skully bladed chip or you just can’t keep the ball on the green when you chip; then there is a unique club for you – the new 2016 Dynacraft Hindsight golf chipper.

Dynacraft Hindsight ChipperMost scoring is won or lost by the short game and any weakness can take a decent round and change the attitude of the golfer to vow “I will never play this game again.”

Chipping is one of those important skills a golfer must learn to execute to save valuable stroke on the card. Before we delve into improving one’s chipping, you must first understand what a chip. A chip is a firm-wristed stroke that is designed to hit the ball low, carry a short distance and then run out. In order to execute this shot the ball is placed back in the stance with the hands forward so you hit down on the ball and the hands lead all the way. It is a short, firm stroke requiring no (or very little) use of the wrists.

Dynacraft Hindsight ChipperMany golfers are taught to chip with a higher lofted clubs such as an 8 or 9-iron or their pitching wedge. Looking at instructional videos for proper chipping the shaft is leaned forward by around 7 degrees, therefore de-lofting the club at impact. This takes some practice and discipline to put oneself in this position time after time. Enter the new 2016 Dynacraft Hindsight chipper, like its’ cousin the Hindsight putter, the shaft exits the head at an angle to put one in the proper from the onset.

The head weight of the Dynacraft Hindsight chipper is heavy, closer to the weight of a putter. The purpose is two-fold. For starters it allow for a shorter, more controllable length (@34”) so you don’t have to remember how far to choke or grip down on the club. Plus the Dynacraft Hindsight Chipperadditional weight makes it much more difficult to become “wristy” and allow the clubhead to get in front of the hands at impact, which is the biggest problem to begin with. With very little time practicing around the green, the built-in shaft lean of the Hindsight chipper to create a forward press will make executing the chip a strong point of one’s game.

The Dynacraft Hindsight chipper does not conform to the Rules of Golf, but for recreational golfers who have struggled chipping with conventional clubs will find a new option to help them gain back strokes and begin to enjoy the game as it was meant to be.

Winn Golf Grips Introduce 2016 Line Featuring New 2016 20th Anniversary Golf Grips

Check out the new 2016 Winn Golf Grip line. For 20 years Winn Golf Grips have revolutionized the golf industry while adapting to the fickle wants and needs of golfers around the world.

Download the 2015 Hireko Golf Equipment CatalogWhat do bubbles, big butts and butt caps all have in common with Winn grips? I want to take you back 20 years ago when TaylorMade was riding high with their copper-colored Burner Bubble series. Their graphite-shafted clubs came equipped with the patented “Bubble” shaft which had a large enhanced area below the grip that made it distinctive. What golfers could not see (until much later) was hidden underneath the grip. The butt end of their Bubble shafts measured a whopping 0.810” and tapered down to 0.670” at the mouth of the grip. This required special thin-walled lightweight grips to be installed onto the shaft. By eliminating weight from the grip end it made the club much lighter overall and created a head heavy feel that could be swung freely.

Is imitation really the sincerest form of flattery?
Out popped a number of pseudo-bubble shafts on the market with the enhanced area under the golf grip, but none had had the true benefit of the larger butt end combined with the lightweight grip of the original Bubble. But for those who wore out their grips on their beloved graphite-shafted Burner Bubble clubs found their choices to be very limited. For clubmaking shops, you couldn’t just slip on a replacement grip. No, it required a special installation tool (and set of instructions) that would make a gynecologist blush.

TaylorMade Bubble Grip
Golfers yearned for “Big Butts”
The Bubble shaft spawned a whole new category of golf shafts called “big butt”. These did not have the enhanced area under the grip that made the Bubble shaft famous, but rather the diameters increase to 0.865” and even larger. The most notorious was Goldwin who came out with a club called the AVDP (short for avoirdupois). The AVDP system comprised of graphite shafts with a monstrous butt end @ 1.02” in diameter and an ultralight grip (as little as 11g). This created a very light club that was extremely head-heavy with swingweights ranging from D8-E1. To put this in perspective, an average grip weighed 50-52 grams.

First exposure to Winn golf grips
This 11 gram golf grip really looked like a leather strap you would find when wrapping a leather grip around an underlisting but instead wrapped directly onto the shaft. It was offered by a new company called Winn Grips and manufactured from a polyurethane material – more like what you would find on a tennis racket. It was much softer and even tackier than the rubber and the few leather grips of the day.

To install these grips onto the big butt shafts, one would remove the strip that covered the adhesive on the back side of the strap. Then you would start wrapping it around the butt end making sure each wrap butted up against the previous wrap. When done, you would secure the bottom of the grip with finishing tape (which looked like black electrical tape) and then cover the hole on the shaft with a butt cap. No installation tool required and you could re-grip without the use of solvents or a vise. They were even available in different thicknesses to allow for custom grip sizing; something the Bubble grips desperately lacked.

Enter the Winn 2-piece slip-on grip
For those too young to remember leather grips, you had to purchase several items. One was a rubber underlisting that you would install on a shaft like any other slip-on grip after installing the grip collar on first. Then you would apply the leather strap, cut it to size and the slide the collar up the shaft to secure the leather grip in place. Needless to say, it was extremely time consuming. There were leather slip-on grips available where the leather was applied over the underlisting where it could be slipped on like a rubber grip (with much more effort since they did not stretch). But even those required an end cap, locking pin and plastic disc.

Winn created something far more user-friendly for re-gripping regular sized shafts. The same polyurethane strap used for the big butt shafts was pre-assembled on a rubber underlisting with a piece of finishing tape to hold it in place. In effect, when the customer bought these Winn grips they were effectively one piece that you could slip on the shaft like any other. Over the years the finishing tape was replaced with a flip over bell collar on the underlisting to make installation no harder than a rubber grip.

Sticker shock
Golfer’s today are accustomed to popular grips costing upwards of $10. Back when Winn introduced their self to the market, the average regular rubber grip price was less than a $1.50. Winn grips were more than twice that. Who in the heck was going to buy a grip for that much money that would wear quicker and need replaced sooner than a rubber grip? I can honestly say I was a pundit and figured that they priced themselves out of the market. But their grips felt so good and their jumbo model was so much softer and lighter than any other grip of similar size.

Coming full circle
What made Winn Grips popular despite the high cost of the day? They had a feel unlike no other grip, were lighter, available in multiple sizes and big butt shafts still were popular for several more years that gave more exposure their grips. Maybe forgotten was the grip material was conducive to being available in more than plain boring black. Winn introduced their tan grip in 1998 and followed up the next year with copper and blue and eventually multi-colors that we have all become accustomed to. This is why their newest grips to celebrate their 20th anniversary are copper.

Let’s not forget how quickly their putter grips went from an oddity to being virtually the grip of choice among putter manufacturers. Plus over the years Winn grip pricing have held fairly steady and are no more expensive than the average rubber grip on the market today. We will never know if rapid success and eventually the sudden decline of Bubble and big butt shafts had never existed whether golfers today would ever know the soft, tacky and unique feel of Winn golf grips.

So I want to wish a happy 20th Anniversary to Winn. You revolutionized the golf industry while adapting to the fickle wants and needs of golfers around the world.

What Is The Best Golf Grip Tape For My Golf Shop?

New Intertape 591 Premium Double-Sided Golf Grip Tape Is THE BEST Golf Grip Tape For Your Golf Shop

Golf Grip Tape ComparedOne of the staples of any golf clubmaking, fitting and repair operation is golf grip tape unless you are a proponent of installing grips on with air. The first thing to ask is “Are all golf grip tapes created the same?” Well my friends, that is like saying beer is beer. Before you make you next purchase you might want to consider the following.

Solvent based versus water re-activated grip tape
There are two primary types of grip tape. By far the most popular is grip tape that is lubricated with some sort of solvent that will eventually flash off and evaporate leaving the grip secure on the butt end of the shaft. The other type of golf grip tape is water based or water re-activated. This is typically instructed to be lubricated with a mixture of two tablespoons of dishwashing soap per quart of tap water. However, I find that undiluted glass cleaner straight from the bottle works even better. In either case, the time before you can effectively use the club could be a full 24 hours rather than a couple hours with solvent on double-sided solvent based grip tape.

brparticle2Size and usage
For hobbyists, individual strips of golf grip tape are more than sufficient. These are convenient as they are pre-cut to the length you need and all you need to do is remove both of the peel off liners and apply to the shaft. They come at a price though. A single strip can be $0.50 or more. Compare that to a roll of 2” wide x 36 yard grip tape where you can get nearly 125 strips, the cost is less than a dime.

2” wide tape is designed to be applied lengthwise on the shaft. The other option is ¾” wide x 36 yards, which is typically spirally wrapped around the shaft (sometimes leaving gaps). The price for ¾” wide solvent based golf grip tape is a little less than 2” wide x 36 yard roll solvent based tape. However it takes considerably longer to install and time is money.

Download the 2015 Hireko Golf Equipment CatalogIn an effort to save money, some 2” wide tape only measures 1.75” wide. Why? Naturally to save cost. With 2” wide tape, there is usually a little overlap. So 1.75” wide means there will be less overlap or even a slight gap when wrapped around the shaft, but still more than adequate to do the job.

The skinny on the solvent based golf grip tape Hireko sells
At Hireko, we offer several types of golf grip installation tape to satisfy your different needs.

brparticle3Hireko has sold for years and years and years an economy tape that serves its’ purpose well. The SG200 is the 2” wide double-sided tape while the SG075 is the ¾” wide version. It is a thinner type of grip installation tape (still thicker than why you will find on many OEM clubs today) with a plastic peel off liner.

brparticle4We added the Dynacraft Professional Double Sided grip tape about a year ago. This is a slightly thicker grip tape than our economy brand similar to what some of our competitors are selling to help consolidate our customer’s purchasing needs. This is a full 2” wide (unlike some) and has the plastic peel off liner. This happens to be the same quality tape that we offer in our individual PIP strips that are also offered in all our grip kits.

brparticle5We just started distributing Intertape 591 Premium Double-Sided Golf Grip Tape. Sadly we call this premium today because this was the grip tape that most veteran clubmakers recall as standard grip tape. This has the easy-release crepe paper liner allowing for either machine or hand application. It comes in the 2” wide x 36 yard roll and is much thicker than most solvent activated golf grip tapes sold today making it easier to install and remove when re-gripping saving you time and money in the long run.

So there you have it, we offer several different styles of golf grip tape from 2” to ¾” wide, solvent-based to water re-activated and economy to premium golf grip tape to meet the needs of any clubmaking operation.

How To Properly Extend A Graphite Golf Shaft

Hireko is now offering a new golf shaft extender “system” to properly extend a graphite golf shaft and even steel golf shafts.

One of the most common repairs a golf clubmaker will encounter is extending golf clubs. Extending a steel shaft is pretty straight forward. That is if you have a 0.600” shaft then you order a 0.600” steel golf shaft extender and install it. However, extending graphite golf shafts it is not so cut and dry. Graphite shafts have a much larger range of butt diameters than steel, plus choosing the correct graphite shaft extender is not based on the outside diameter of the shaft, but the insider diameter. Two 0.600” butt end graphite shafts can have entirely different sized openings depending upon the weight and wall thickness of the shaft.

VIEW THE GRAPHITE SHAFT EXTENDERS IN ACTION BELOW IN “HOW TO INSTALL GRAPHITE SHAFT EXTENDERS” VIDEO

Download the 2015 Hireko Golf Equipment CatalogEleven is far better than two
In the past, graphite shaft extensions have come in two different sizes; standard and oversize. These two were to fit all the different models in the industry by either sanding until it fit the inside of the butt or wrapping masking tape around the stem or insertion end to act as a shim. Hireko is now offering a new extender “system” to properly extend a graphite and even steel shaft. We have 11 different color-coded sizes plus a measurement tool to take out the guesswork and have an extender that fits properly.

Graphite and Steel Golf Shaft ExtendersThe three largest extenders serve double-duty by fitting graphite or the most popular steel shaft sizes (0.560”, 0.580” or 0.600”). Usually this is a no-no with other graphite shaft extenders, but these are made of high-quality nylon blended plastic that is durable enough to extend a steel shaft without breaking.

Golf Shaft ExtendersThe beauty of the system
What makes this shaft extender system work so well is the Graphite Golf Shaft Measurement Gauge. No more second guessing what size to order. To use, simply insert the gauge into the butt end of the shaft you wish to extend without forcing it in. When the gauge stops you identify the color just above the butt of the shaft and order or choose the correct size shaft extender from your inventory to do the job correctly. This will allow for slight sanding for a better epoxy bond or you can order the color code just below it.

Do I need all the different sizes for my shop?
The answer is no if you don’t mind the additional work of sanding the insertion end of the extender to the exact fit of the shaft you are trying to extend. The Gold (0.500”), Red (0.530”) and Black (0.560”) will be the most popular and allow for sanding the smaller sizes and still leaves enough depth of the flutes for additional epoxy adhesion.

 

Tips to Extending Graphite / Steel Shafts

  1. Always epoxy the shaft extension in place, do not rely on a pressure fit.
  2. Lightly abrade the insertion end prior to installation to give the epoxy a better hold.
  3. Make sure the transition Golf Shaft Extendersstep fits tightly against the very end of the shaft and there is no gap. This will allow for 2” of insertion depth.
  4. Once the epoxy has cured, cut the butt end to the desired golf club length with a friction or hack saw. NOTE: Never extend a graphite or steel shaft more than 2″ (unless it is a putter shaft). Any more may cause premature failure due to stress where the extension is made. If you need longer golf clubs (greater than 2”) it is best to re-shaft rather than risk using one of these graphite golf shaft extensions. The same goes for any commercially available steel shaft extensions.
  5. Never extend a golf club that already has been extended previously.

What is the Best Golf Grip for Adjustable Golf Drivers?

THE KARMA REVOLUTION GOLF GRIP IS THE BEST GOLF GRIP FOR ADJUSTABLE GOLF DRIVERS!

Karma Black Velvet 360 Golf GripTake a look at virtually any grip on the market you will see the manufacturer’s or grip’s name engraved somewhere on the outside body of the golf grip.  Typically that name is designed to be in the “up” position or pointing toward the toe of the club at address.  This may be in conjunction with some sort of hand placement details to assist with alignment.   This practice is done for branding purposes.

Karma has broken every commandment in marketing and has come out with a new version of our most popular golf grip but without the logo in the ordinary position.  But why?

WHY THE KARMA REVOLUTION GOLF GRIP WILL BE YOUR FAVORITE GOLF GRIP FOR ADJUSTABLE GOLF DRIVERS

Karma Revolution Golf Grips1. Ease of Installation
For any person new to clubmaking, their first exposure is installing a golf grip onto a golf shaft.  While seasoned clubmakers take that for granted, for a newbie this can be a daunting task to get the grip all the way onto the shaft and remember to align it properly before setting it aside to start to grip the next golf club.  So the most obvious reason is the golf grip can be installed in any direction and look like it was put on properly instead of crooked.

GDW Golf Adapter2. Adjustable Golf Clubs
Reason number 2 is there are the millions and millions of potential golf clubs on the market that need golf club re-gripped. For the past several years most OEM adjustable drivers (and even many adjustable fairway woods and hybrids) are equipped with a hosel adapter that can be removed and switched to another position to create a different lie, face angle or effective loft. However, when this occurs the name engraved on the golf grip will no longer be aligned properly at address. In some cases one might be lucky the engraving on the grip is underneath where you are not able to see if and for others it will look unsettling when it is cocked to one side or another.

3. Demo Golf Clubs
For professional club fitters, the use of logo-free grips is a wise investment if you are using a system where you interchange heads and shafts such as Club Conex especially their UNI-FIT products for brand name adjustable golf club cluheads. It is one less distraction for your customers to be concerned with so you can fit them to the best of your ability.

What are the Adjustable Weight Screws for in the Acer XV Golf Club Series?

The screws in the Acer XV Golf Club Series are engineered for golf ball launch angle, reduction of spin (for added distance!) and custom golf club weighting.

Acer XV Golf Club Screws AdjustabilityIf you noticed the new Acer XV golf club series (Drivers, Thriver Mini, fairways and hybrids) you will see an adjustable golf club weight screw on the sole in what we call the “gravity port”. The purpose of the screw is two-fold. One is to concentrate weight in a specific area of the head. For instance, on the Acer XV Golf Drivers and Acer XV Golf Thriver Mini the screw is located in the rear portion of the sole to help launch the golf ball higher, while on the higher-lofted Acer XV fairways and Acer XV hybrid the gravity port is more forward to reduce golf ball spin and trajectory for added distance.

The other reason a screw exists on these heads is for custom golf club weighting and may be the most important. This allows for varying the swingweight when customizing to different lengths, shaft and grip weights as there are two optional weights that can be used to either increase or decrease the head weight to optimize performance

Acer XV Golf Club Adjustable Screw PositionsShould I use the stock screw or change?
Following is a diagram to show how to loosen/remove or install/tight the adjustable golf screw from the head. A wrench is provided with the purchase of each head just in case you want to substitute the screw. The diagram will also help you decide whether or not the stock screw or one of the optional screws will be necessary.

Why Savvy Golfers Choose Sahara Golf Bags

2015 Sahara Golf Bags
Equipment Review: 2015 Golf’s Most Wanted Golf Bags, The Sahara Golf Bags

At Hireko, we offer a wide selection of golf cart and stand bags at difference price points to suit any budget. We have a lot of the top names like Bag Boy, Datrek and Ogio. But we also have one you may never have heard of before – Sahara. If you are wondering who in the hell makes Sahara golf bags it happens to be one of our house brands. So that’s why it is not a household name – at least yet.

In all truthfulness we do not actually “make” the bag. Let’s face it, just about all bags are made at one of the many bag factories in China and imported. Companies that sell bags will do one of two things. The first is to create their own design that is proprietary to them. Examples of those would be Ogio’s models with their Ogio Silencer Club Protection System or Clicgear’s B3 bags to fit precisely onto their wildly popular 3 and 4 wheel golf push carts.

The other and more common option is a company will Download the 2015 Hireko Golf Equipment Catalogpick one of the many styles that a bag company has already developed and then the buyer will select the materials, colors and maybe extra features to add to the bag. So if you have looked a lot of bags and some appear to look eerily similar to one another, those are the honest-to-goodness reasons why.

What is the real difference between Sahara golf cart and golf stand bags and OEM golf bags? Let’s look at how they are similar:

  1. Sahara golf bags are lightweight
  2. Sahara golf bags have ample storage including a velour lined valuables pocket with a water proof zipper
  3. Sahara golf bags are colorful
  4. Sahara golf bags have padded dual straps
  5. Sahara golf bags feature full length dividers
  6. Plus Sahara golf bags have the usual rain hood, umbrella holder, Velcro glove attachment, towel ring, etc.

What Sahara golf bags don’t have is the $160 and up price tag. Let me ask you, when was the last time one of your golfing buddies asked you what kind of bag you have? Most likely they have never. So why spend an extra $40 or more just to have some major OEM name emblazoned on the side so you are a virtual walking billboard? If anything those companies should be paying you to lug your clubs across the course.

If you compare the pricing, features and materials of the 2015 Sahara Gobi and Baja Lite cart and stand bags against a lot of other bags on the market, we think you will find them to be a great value. Call our bags low cost; just don’t call them cheap. After all they might be coming out of the same factory in China as those more expensive branded bags.

This past week we began to sell a new book on golf club fitting aptly named the Modern Guide to Golf Clubfitting that will offer a different and hopefully a fresh perspective than other clubfitting books that have been written in the past. While the book was targeted for those that professionally fit golf clubs for a living, it was written for any golfer interested in learning more about their existing or new equipment.

Download the 2015 Hireko Golf Equipment CatalogThe obvious question is who should be fit? There is a preconceived notion that only good players should be fit. As mentioned in this book “that would be like saying that only high handicappers need lessons. In fact, all golfers need lessons and to be fit. With proper instruction and custom clubfitting, both can help a player enjoy this great game and have a positive experience.”

In the book we address what fitting is and how it won’t have the same meaning to all. We even discuss the six levels of fitting that you may encounter and where one may be more applicable than another. For someone that has been in the golf industry for now over three decades, I have experienced fitting first hand. I’ve fit individuals, taught golf clubfitting classes and continue to help our customers on a daily basis help fit their customers or themselves. What I have learned over the years is not to try to apply a cookie-cutter approach to fitting because that will be a doomed business model.

The book is written in the most orderly fashion as possible with understanding the basics first and then applying those ideas together. Plus they say a picture is worth a thousand words and the reason why there are ton of diagrams to help you understand a certain concept.

Speaking of why, Why do we have 14 clubs in our bag? Why does it seem like I use the same clubs over and over again? Why do lady golfers have an unfair advantage? Why do I push my hybrids but pull my irons? What is golf club bounce and should I care? What is the most important variable when it comes to golf club fitting? What is the most important question to address in a fitting? What can I expect from a fitting? These are all questions that are explained in the Modern Guide to Golf Clubmaking.

I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did writing it.
