Forged Composite, the Lightest, Strongest, Most Precise Material Callaway Has Ever Used. Twenty years after revolutionising the golf equipment driver market with the original Big Bertha Driver, Callaway will shortly introduce Diablo Octane Black Drivers which feature a breakthrough new material developed in conjunction with Lamborghini. Forged Composite is the lightest, strongest and most precise material Callaway has ever used and has enabled engineers to precisely set the clubhead’s Centre of Gravity (CG) and Moment of Inertia (MOI) in order to promote more accurate trajectories. By pairing this lighter, more efficient clubhead with a longer shaft, head speed, power at impact and overall distance has also been increased. With a stunning black finish unique to the European market, both the standard and Tour versions are striking clubs in every respect. read more »

Will this be the club that could create a whole new market in a world of custom fit golf equipment?
For under £20 for a graphite custom made iron you can attract a whole new customer base which will help you to increase your retail sales. The new EZ3 custom range has been developed by PGA Professionals to give medium to high handicappers the ultimate game improvement club. Custom fitting option allows them to be fine tuned to the golfers characteristics and are available individually or as a set. The EZ3 driver and fairway woods both feature an off-set head which allows more time for the club head to be get square at impact, significantly reducing the distance robbing slice that affects many golfers. Hybrid numbers three and four replace the normal three and four iron, with much easier to hit compact wood shape heads. High ball flight increases carry and reduces roll to allow much more confidence and control. The irons feature a lower deeper cavity with a wide camber sole and oversize head. This creates a more playable and confidence inspiring iron for the improving golfer. For more information on PGA Collection please click here.

Wilson’s golf equipment launch of the new Di11 irons which come out on top vs major competitors in intensive tests.
The new Di11 is officially the longest iron Wilson have ever created. Like the massively successful Di7, and Di9, the Di11’s are all about helping the game-improver achieve maximum power and forgiveness. The Ultra-wide sole delivers a low CG to promote a higher ball flight. A deep undercut cavity produces a sweetspot 36% larger than other leading super game-improvement irons. A generous coating of lightweight elastomeric reduces vibration and Wilson’s patented wide-tip shaft technology reduces twisting for a straighter, longer ball flight. In a world of 1 to 10, this goes to 11…Once you hit it. You get it. For more details about Wilson Staff clubs, visit www.wilsonstaff.com
These new products will either be launched in November 2010 or early in 2011. Please register for our newsletter so that we can keep you informed – Golf Direct Newsletter Signup
