I saw the new Callaway Heavenwood hybrid today. The club reminds me of the Kasco K2K hybrid and feels really, really solid. I am thinking it will be the best selling hybrid next year because of it’s feel, performance and low price.
A side note to the Callaway Heavenwood….. Fred Couples has one in his bag this week. This will undoubtedly start the “Freddy to sign with Callaway” rumors. Remember Couples will be eligible for the Champions Tour in a few years and would give Callaway a huge presence there. So lets see… the list of possible Callaway signings grows again… DiMarco, Couples, Appleby and Retief Goosen.
One more note of interest in regards to Callaway…. Rocco Mediate is now playing Callaway’s first ever forged iron. Rocco has been playing the Callaway X-Tour irons since last week’s 84 Lumber Classic. I don’t really have any more info on these yet but as soon as I do I will pass it on!
Adams has introduced the Redline RPM driver and fairway woods. Adams has moved more weight towards the bottom of these new clubs through the use of tungsten weights and the RPM’s xFace technology increases the COR across the face adding forgiveness. The 460CC driver comes in 2 models; a neutral head with even heel-toe weighting and a draw head with extra heel weighting.
The new Mizuno MP-T wedges look pretty nice. These forged wedges are available in both a Black Nickel and a Raw Haze finish. The unchromed Raw Haze version will eventually rust and has a gold/purple tint to reduce glare. The MP-T’s are made of a mild carbon steel that provides an extremely soft feel. The wedges will be available in lofts of 51, 53, 56, 58 and 60 degrees.
