Ah, love is in the air. Can you smell it? Probably not. If you’re like most people in America right now, your nose is stopped up or running like a faucet. Gotta love flu season. Even if you can’t smell the roses, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. At Golf Club Brokers, we’ve done the leg work and picked the perfect pair of golf gift ideas for you to give your loved one this year.
Have you ever wondered what the number designation on your Project X shaft means? You know, the 5.0, 6.0, 6.5 and so on printed on the shaft. These numbers correspond with flexes from “regular” to “extra stiff plus”. While the flex is sometimes written on the shaft, many times it isn’t, leaving only the number to inform you of the flex. The only problem? The flex that corresponds with each number often changes based on the shaft model. And the power of Google can fail you as you search for a cohesive list of all of the flex code meanings. Even the Project X website lacks any kind of compiled guide, and only some of the individual shaft product pages reveal which numbers go with which flex.
Not to worry. Golf Club Brokers has created an extensive list of Project X shafts and their flex codes. We’ll update the list as more shafts are released in the future.
It’s no secret that golf is considered one of the more costly sports to play. If you want to get into soccer, you really just need a ball and something to act as a goal. Baseball essentially comes down to a bat, a ball, and a glove. But golf requires a decent amount of equipment, some of which can be on the pricey side, as well as fees to play at a course. Most golfers will tell you that the price tag is worth it to enjoy the sport that they love. But you’d be hard-pressed to find many players who would say the same about some of the most luxurious golf items on the market. From $100,000 weekend experiences to gold-plated clubs, here are some of the most expensive golf purchases:
Christmas has come and gone. You’ve returned the clubs you got under the tree that were not even close to what you had asked for. Now you’re scrolling through all the new releases for the year with visions of a perfect swing and a low handicap.
It’s January. A time for new beginnings. A time to put your money where your swing is. A time to buy your golf game.
Yes, that’s right. I said it. It’s time to buy your game.
First though, you need to stop looking at all those new clubs. There is always great new technology coming out, but all the twisted faces in the world aren’t going to help your swing if you’re constantly shanking the ball 30 yards to the right.
You need to re-evaluate your game, not your bag.
2017 proved to be an epic year for Callaway. The company saw its 2017 GBB Epic driver lead the field as one of the best reviewed and highest selling models of the year. For 2018, Callaway is going rogue, and taking some of the technology that worked so well in their last driver to their new fairway woods and hybrids.
The Callaway Rogue line will features three new drivers, two fairway woods, two hybrids, and four iron set models. All of the clubs fall under the Rogue name, but are built with unique designs for different players.
Ping’s latest game-improvement iron finds similarities with recent Ping hybrid models. Unlike any of its predecessors, the Ping G700 features the first hollow-body for a set of irons in the history of the company. The successful design of the Ping Crossover hybrid acts as a direct influence for the G700 irons. The hollow-body is meant to push distance and forgiveness to the max. The thin face combines with body design to make the club perform more like a metalwood. Ping has always been known for their game-improvement irons. Now, the G700 model aims to take the next step in creating a forgiving design.
