I just got back from the PGA Show in Orlando, Florida this weekend and besides the Taylormade RocketBallz Fairway Wood, the hottest new product at the show was Callaway’s new Razr Fit Driver! The Razr Fit is the 2nd generation of Razr drivers and it is Callaway’s first ever adjustable driver! Already a Golf Medal winner and Product of the Year in this year’s Golf Digest Hot List, the Razr Fit features Callaway’s patented OptiFit Technology which allows players to adjust both the face angle and either draw or neutral weighting. I was very impressed with the OptiFit technology and unlike many adjustable drivers in the market, the hosel looks very natural and the club looks great in the address position. One of the reason that Callaway held off so long on bringing a fully adjustable driver to the market was that the engineers felt that the additional weight of the hosel negatively impacts the performance of the clubhead. Thanks to Callaway’s lightweight, yet durable forged composite material, engineers at Callaway were able to provide the best of both of worlds! This forged composite material in the crown of the clubhead is lighter and stronger than titanium and allows for precision thickness control to optimize the center of gravity. For added forgiveness, the Razr Fit incorporates Speed Frame face technology in order to create a large sweet spot that generates high ball speeds for long, consistent distance. The Razr Fit driver comes equipped with a premium Aldila RIP NV Shaft and the driver is offered in lofts ranging from 8.5* to 11.5*. Overall, I think that the Razr Fit is the best driver Callaway has ever produced and I expect this model to be one of the best selling drivers of 2012!

Adam’s new Speedline Fast 12 Driver is sure to be a hit! The Fast 12 is their longest, most forgiving driver yet thanks to new industry leading aerodynamic technology. Adams used airfoil design elements on the both the crown and sole and were able to reduce drag by a whopping 14% and increase club head speed by 3 mph!

The Adams Fast 12 Driver is available in early February!
Check out the new Cobra AMP Iron Set! These flashy irons not only look good, they flat out perform thanks to Cobra’s patented E9 Face Technology and V Skid sole design. The AMP Irons are designed for the golfer looking for superior distance and accuracy and will fit a wide range of handicaps! The demand for this set has been very high so we are encouraging Cobra fans to place a pre-order for an early February arrival.
Nike’s new Nike VR S Driver is set to hit the door this February and boy are we excited! The VR S Driver is the next generation of Machspeed Drivers and it is by far their greatest effort yet! The VR S is a tour inspired design that is built for speed! Nike ditched their original Str8-Fit technology and went for a more user friendly and less obtrusive hosel design for the VR S. The lightweight design coupled with a large, aerodynamic club head makes the VR S driver extremely forgiving and NexCOR face technology provides explosive ball speeds for greater distance. A designed for Nike Mitsubishi Rayon Fubuki K shaft is the stock shaft offering and the driver is offered in a variety of lofts.
Budget Golf is definitely AMPED up over the release of Cobra’s new AMP Driver! The AMP Driver is Cobra’s first youthful departure from their tried and true product lines and while it is very flashy in appearance, the AMP driver is loaded with the latest technology that Cobra has to offer. Advanced material placement coupled with Cobra’s patented E9 Face Technology creates a sweet spot zone that is 30% larger which helps to produce explosive ball speeds across the entire hitting surface. Like the previous models, the AMP driver is fully adjustable to optimize ball flight for increased distance and improved accuracy and unlike other adjustable drivers on the market, it is very simple to use. An Aldila RIP 55 gram shaft is standard for the AMP Driver and it is offered in lofts ranging from 8.5* to 11.5*. The Cobra AMP Driver is available February 10th and the demand has already been very high so we suggest placing a pre-order!
