Think Big to Improve Your Game – Take a Close Look at Clubhead Specifications

Become aware of clubhead specifications to help lower your score.

If you are a beginner or a golfer that fails to break 100 on a consistent basis (if at all) you are probably looking for all the help that you can get in the equipment you play.  I am often asked what qualities in clubs would be the best for this type of golfer, so here is a quick primer of what I might look for.

On drivers, fairways and hybrids look for dimensions that are a little broader from front-to-back as these can add a bit more stability on off-center shots.  For instance, the Dynacraft Avatar XMOI, iBella Bellissima and Acer XK series all have a wider footprint or in golf club terminology – breadth.  This is often a standard club head specification as a way to compare clubs to one another. Most drivers on the market are 460cc, so this provides one more additional piece of information when you are deciding amongst these clubs.

Iron heads which are a little longer from heel-to-toe and possibly front-to-back as well, are designed to make your miss hits more playable too.  Shear size is often blade_lengththe difference between most irons that are considered game-improvement and those designed for better golfers.  Often times component companies will include blade length and sole width as standard specifications. As an example, the Acer Mantara is an iron that has a longer blade length while the Power Play Caiman has the widest sole width making them two of our most forgiving models.

Putters vary greatly in size and shape.  Blade models tend to be a little less forgiving on off center shots than mallet style putters.  You can identify a Blade style putters as it will be narrow from front-to-back. Mallet designs usually take putteron that non-traditional appearance.  By expanding their size, the putter is less likely to twist keeping the ball stay on-line better. Again, component companies will often include blade length and sole width as standard specifications to assist you.

Even when you start to improve, don’t forget what brought you there – your clubs.  Don’t make the mistake to go from big to small all at once.  In order to save money, my local newspaper recently reduced the content of the paper and made several features smaller.  One of which was my daily Sudoku puzzle.  Even though the size has not affected my ability to solve the problem, it does require more effort and diminishes the enjoyment factor.   The same can go for golf clubs.

When you compare clubs, look closely at the size specifications.  Take note that the difference between models that are considered game-improvement and one that is designed for more accomplished golfers may only be several millimeters, but these small things add up. So next time you are in the market for a new set of clubs or individual club, think big to help lower your score.


Introducing The Power Play Caiman Irons – Arriving Friday May 1st

New irons are the perfect match to the best selling Caiman line.

Since we first introduced our Power Play Caiman driver last year and subsequently added the matching fairway woods, hybrids and specialty Raw Power fairway wood, all have exceeded all our sales expectations.  More importantly, our customer’s expectations based on the independent product reviews that have been posted. Finally, and I mean finally, the long-awaited Caiman Raw Power Irons will arrive 4/30/09 and I think you will find them to be well worth the wait.

For those of you who know me understand that I get a little giddy about the new items we are working on or getting ready to release.  But the Caiman Iron is one that I get a little more excited than normal.  Here is why?  caiman-raw-power-irons-002Certain products come along every great once in a while that are truly unique not only how they are constructed or how they look, but also how they perform.  Don’t get me wrong, the Caiman Raw Power Irons are indeed constructed differently.  Plus when you see it in person you will know you hadn’t seen anything quite like it either.  But these irons flat out play well.

One reason these took so long to develop was these were far more difficult to produce than we originally thought. Even the engineers at the foundry were scratching their heads on how to actually produce it.  After several attempts of creating the tooling to be able to pull the wax out caiman-raw-power-irons-003efficiently, special heat treatments, plus the air cannon testing to test for durability, we came up with something that is going to be very special. It incorporates the same high COR maraging steel face as the hybrids for increased ball speed and weight re-distribution.  This allowed us to make the sole incredibly wide measuring 30mm across.  And like the Pontiac commercial said, “wider is better”.

The pictures don’t do this club justice as one can’t full appreciate just how deep the rear massing is way from the face.  This is what allows the center of gravity to be as face back and low providing the unbelievable stability you will experience.  If you want to work the ball, well you selected the wrong head.  But for us mere mortals you are going to hit the ball long and straight like a hybrid, but it still looks like an iron.  That is just the icing on the cake.

So if you are in the market for that super-game improvement iron to improve your score and something you will be proud to own and show off to your buddies, I strongly believe that the Caiman Raw Power Irons are exactly what you have been waiting for.
