new gear 40 October 2014 | www.insidegolf.com.au >NEWGEAR We highlight the latest products to hit the market Callaway Apex Utility Irons Performance, Playability and Forgiveness in a Utility Iron. Big Bertha V Series Driver Speed Enhanced with Forgiveness. Newe8technologyexemplifiesballspeedforlegendaryExoticslength. The new Callaway Apex Utility Irons are ideal for golfers looking for a high technology alternative to hybrids or long irons. The traditional long iron shape is designed to deliver performance and a level of forgiveness and playability that go well beyond what you’d expect from a forged face, cavity back design. The Carpenter 455 Forged Face Cup–the same one used in Callaway fairway woods and hybrids–helps create higher ball speeds across the face to achieve the distance players are looking for. The sole weighting lowers the center of gravity making the utility irons are easier to hit and easier to launch. Each loft offering comes standard with a KBS Tour-V (steel). The UST Recoil 680 F4 Shaft (graphite) is available as a custom option. Callaway’s new Big Bertha V Series Driver, the newest member of the Big Bertha Family, is configured for distance. Weighing approximately 290 total grams, it features an ultra lightweight 42-gram Mitsubishi Bassara Shaft, lightweight Forged Composite head design and advanced aerodynamic shaping–all of which combine to deliver increased clubhead speed. A Hyper Speed Face delivers higher ball speeds across the hitting area due to a lighter, hotter more robust design, and the OptiFit hosel offers a combination of eight lofts (-1, S, +1, +2) and lie angles (Draw or Neutral) to find your optimized trajectory and shot shape. Available at Retail: October 1, 2014 Loft Offerings: 18, 21 and 24 degrees Steel shaft: KBS Tour-V Graphite shaft: UST Recoil 680 F4 (additional $20) Grip: Lamkin Crossline Touredge Exotics Drivers The new E8 drivers deliver distance- dominating speed with adjustability options that allow players to fine-tune power and control. Available in two options – E8 and E8 Beta – the drivers feature superior adjustability with loft modifications and an interchangeable sole weight. A discerning feature of the E8 models involves the centre of gravity (CG) location; slightly lower and forward for a higher launch, and faster ball speed with less spin. The Beta utilizes a higher, more forward CG position to produce a more penetrating trajectory, increased ball velocity, and minimal spin. The E8 clubheads include loft options from 8.5 to 12 degrees in 1⁄2 degree increments, and feature Tour Edge’s lifetime warranty, 30-day play guarantee, and are projected to be in stores the beginning of October.
