Adams continues the evolution of their Speedline series of drivers with their latest release, the Adams Speedline Tech Driver. The Speedline Tech Driver features 6G Aerodynamic Shaping, FASTfit Adjustability, 3DS Face Technology, and Lightweight Multi Material Construction. These advancements deliver up to 11 yards of added distance and 54% more accuracy. One of the most visual updates with the Adams Speedline Tech Driver is the Aerodynamic Carbon Wing on the back of the head. The purpose of the wing coincides with the goal of creating a driver with ultimate performance, and also optimized acoustics. The carbon wing allows for a smaller internal titanium chamber which improves the sound, but the exterior size remains the same. The carbon fiber wing also helps to dampen vibration. This helps to create the perfect sound which is directly related to feel. Add the advanced aerodynamic shape, adjustability, and advanced face technology, and you have the most advanced Adams Speedline Driver ever. The Adams Speedline Tech Driver will come with a Matrix RUL 54 graphite shaft. Availability is expected in mid July. Please click here for more information o the Speedline Tech Driver.
The Nike TW ’13 Golf Shoes were developed at the request of Tiger Woods. Tiger shared his insight with Nike’s footwear team.
“I train with Nike FREE technology all the time,” said Woods. “I love training in it, running in it, lifting in it. So I asked, why can’t I play golf in it?”
With those comments, the Nike footwear team went to work and developed the shoes Tiger Woods has been wearing for the last 6-8 months.
“Now my feet are stronger and I feel more athletic,” said Woods. “These shoes provide freedom of movement and allow me to release more power through my swing.”
It was only a matter of time before the prototype golf shoes Tiger has been wearing were made available to the public.
The FREE Inspired Nike TW 13 Golf Shoes also feature the new Nike Dynamic Fit supportive system. Targeted support delivers unprecedented strength-to-weight ratio and one-to-one fitted support. Flywire-infused nylon straps extend 360° from the footbed to the lacing system, securing the foot for an adaptive fit that provides golfers stability with mobility.

The new TaylorMade Daddy Long Legs Putter takes high MOI to the next level. With an MOI of 8500, it is significantly more stable than the Ghost Spider(6800).

The grip weighs 130 grams which is twice the weight of a standard putter grip. With the counterbalancing, the MOI of the entire club is increased. 2 sizes are available, 35″ and an innovative length of 38″.

A significant amount of buzz has surrounded the new TaylorMade RocketBallz Fairway Wood. Specifically it has to do with the incredible distance everyone is experiencing. The feedback and reports we have seen are real world results, not just smoke an mirrors. The RocketBallz Fairway Wood is so long, we’re expecting a lot of players to take advantage of the HL 3w (17*) option that TaylorMade is offering. This HL version will be perfect for players who want to get a higher softer landing trajectory, and yet the RocketBallz will most likely still be longer than your previous 15* fairway wood.
So what is the secret to the distance? TaylorMade has incorporated a few technologies to create the extremely hot RocketBallz Fairway Wood. The first and most visual is the Speed Pocket on the sole. To incorporate this Speed pocket, and create a playable club with low CG, TaylorMade RocketBallz fairway woods were developed with a high-strength 455 steel face plate welded to a cast body. They incorporate improved sole geometry and a “Speed Pocket” to improve overall head and face flexibility and a.slightly deeper face with a further-forward CG location than traditional designs. The shape of the head is a little more traditional then the Burner SuperFast 2.0, yet it uses the same matte white fisish on the crown, along with a black PVD face for optimum contract which makes it easier to align at address.
2011 was definitely the year of the R11 Driver. We would not be surprised if 2012 was the year of the RocketBallz Fairway Wood. Check out this video and see the response from Tour Pro after hitting the RocketBallz Fairway Wood.
