Itomic Golf Grips
I'm pleased to introduce Itomic Grips as a new sponsor of The Clubmaker Report and Clubmaker Online. Itomic Grips is the brainchild of Dave Kelly, owner of Tacki-Mac, Avon, and Kelmac grips.

I met Dave back in the mid 90's at a Professional Clubmaker trade show in Louisville KY. I had the bright idea of offering custom clubmaking shops silkscreened/personalized graphite shafts with custom logo's and offered custom airbrushed automotive colors, too. I rented a booth at the trade show and set up a rinky-dink display to sell my shafts. I think I sold a grand total of two shafts. So much for my bright idea. I did enjoy hanging out with Dave at the show and never forgot his words of encouragement.

Dave's bright idea was to gradually buy some of the oldest and finest brand names in golf and put them all under one umbrella company selling golf, racquetball, hockey, baseball, bicycle, and motorsport grips. Tacki-Mac, Avon, and Kelmac offer an amazing array of grips. Chamois, Nexus, Tacki-Mac arthritic grip, unique two color name it, they offer a grip model to fit your game.

Tacki Macs colorful (available in black, white, red, or blue) new ITOMIC grips are not like traditional rubber grips. They are made from a proprietary blend of elastomeric materials that are very tacky with a super soft (but firm) feel. This revolutionary blend of thermo-forming materials is both very durable, and high performing in all weather conditions. ITOMIC grips maintain their tacky feel and new look for years by washing them with warm soapy water. Grips with a similar look go for something like $15 each. The Itomic grips list price is $3.95 each, your price will depend on quantity purchased.

I've set up a page at my site with some pictures and information on the new grips and with a phone number and email address for more information and to order direct from Tacki-Mac. Your contact there is Debbie. Please be nice to her, she's great to work with and will make sure your orders are handled with care.

Maybe I'll call Dave and see if he's interested in custom airbrushed grips...

Free Golf Goodies and Twitter
I'm trying to build my following at Twitter and I'm working on bribing you all to follow me at my Twitter feed (link below) by offering free golf equipment if you'll sign up and follow my Twitter feed. I've got an extra Project X graphite driver shaft (the other is in my R9) that just might end up in a giveaway, maybe some Itomic grips, a certain new green NV Voodoo from sponsor Aldila might go (if I don't keep it for myself, really excited to try that one).

You get the idea. Follow along at my Twitter feed and you might score one of the hot new golf components for 2010. If you're uncertain about Twitter, don't be. It's a great way to get short bits of information of your choice. You decide who to follow (it's fun to follow some of the PGA and LPGA folks) and it shows up on your Twitter page that you check out at your leisure on your computer or smart phone. I promise you I won't tweet you on what I'm having for breakfast (unless of course my wife finally cooks breakfast for me after 20 years).

PGA Show Review
I've been gathering information for my PGA Show review. There are some exciting new products shipping now and I'll write about them in the next issue of The Clubmaker Report.
I've added a page at Clubmaker Online with embedded videos that you should check out. Videos from True Temper, Matrix, a Graphite Design factory tour, a Scratch Golf grinding video, a funny Golf Pride vid, sponsor AGCP show how to remove a clubhead, and an interesting Golf Digest video on how to best hit a lightweight, longdrive club.
