Itomic Grips from Tacki-Mac
  Itomic Golf Grips
Tacki Mac's colorful 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. The new Itomic grips are available in black, white, red, or blue and in a new wrap style. Follow the link below to order Itomic grips direct from Tacki Mac.
UST AXIVCore Sale Ends Thursday
Only a few days left to Save $50 on the UST AXIV Black, Red, or Green series (reg. $140) and 22% off on the Blue. Sale Ends Thursday 4-29. I'm also including a really nice matching UST Mamiya grip. The grip is the new Comp SC series http://www.ustmamiya.com/golf_grips/products.aspx?id=2 The graphics on the shaft are black with gold/silver logos, a small silver band, then a really sharp gold/yellow (sort of a dandelion yellow like my front lawn) and the new grip matches the shaft perfectly, which is tough to do! Great job from UST.

Don't miss out on this chance to save a ton on the AXIVcore shaft series, there's a model for any swing in this excellent shaft line.

Harrison Hathaway Interchangeable Driver
Shaftmaker Harrison has a great new driver called the Hathaway. It's a cast head like the premium priced OEM drivers and includes their interchangeable shaft system for those of you that like to experiment with a variety of golf shafts. The V4 has more of a rounded/traditional look and the V6 more of a triangular high MOI design for forgiveness and a bit higher launch/spin vs. the V4.

The driver includes the Harrison Saga or for a small upcharge you can request their new Eclipse shaft (see story later in The Clubmaker Report). They designed this driver to compete with and beat (and their testing confirms) the most popular OEM interchangeable driver in distance. Read a bit about the new driver below and follow the link for pictures and specs.

From Harrison: The V4 and V6 driver incorporates our exclusive 4 X 4 platform. It embodies versatility, distance and control. Our patented Plasma Dual Face, dual furnace investment casting maximizes ball speed across the entire clubface for ultimate distance, and the cutting edge 4 Max technology lowers ball spin while increasing the effective moment of inertia for unrivaled accuracy off the tee. 4Mix technology offers shaft, loft, lie, and face angle adjustability and you can purchase extra 4Mix sleeves to interchange shafts.

Harrison Eclipse
Harrison is introducing a new shaft called the Eclipse. I spoke with Mike at Harrison and he tells me the new shaft is designed specifically with distance in mind. They accomplish this with their new shaft design feature called Active Response Technology (ART).

The Eclipse shares some of the design features of the popular Harrison Saga shaft but their testing shows the Eclipse is longer vs. the Saga. New graphics/paint treatment are sharp and you can expect more exciting new products from Harrison in 2010. The Eclipse can be requested as an upgrade shaft in the Harrison Hathaway driver mentioned above. There is a small upcharge for the Eclipse shaft, contact me for pricing.

Loudmouth Pants
You may have seen these wild pants while following John Daly on the PGA Tour and the Golf Channel (the Canadian Olympic Curling Team also wears them).

If you're looking to jazz up your golf wardrobe (or seriously mess with your opponents mind), pick up a pair of these great designs in either shorts, pants, shirts, and accessories. They're 97% cotton 3% Lycra for a fit great and comfort. Check it out and send me a note for pricing and availability.

Nickent 3DX Hybrid Component or Assembled
I've got a great price on the Nickent 3DX hybrid. You can build your own (clubhead price $40) or go the assembled route ($50 assembled with an Aldila NV hybrid shaft). I can get roughly 3,000 pieces, when these are gone the sale is over.

20 deg loft only, shaft flex choice in Senior or Stiff flex. If those flexes don't work for you or you're interested in building your own, send me a note and I'll help you choose a hybrid shaft.

Hot Shots
Had a chance to try the new Graphite Design TourAd Deep Impact at the range. It's a great new shaft (the shaft Tiger bagged at the Masters) and LONG. Great smooth feel the Graphite Design is known for. Info here http://clubmaker-online.com/products/gd.tourad.di.html

Nice win last weekend for Fujikura. Motore F1 in the winners driver and F3 in the 2nd place driver. I'm adding Japanese clubmaker Fourteen Golf's beautiful equipment line to my catalog. They've been picking up steam on the Tours, especially with their forged irons and wedges. Check them out here http://www.fourteengolf.com and send me a note for pricing.

I mentioned my new Iphone/gadget wrap product called Paintskinz last week. I've added pictures and information at http://paintskinz.com Wrap your Iphone, Ipod Touch, Macbook (more to come) in a protective real paint flim.

Aldila Voodoo
  Aldila Voodoo
What sets the VooDoo apart from other shafts is its patent pending S-core, or stabilized core, Technology designed to increase distance and provide outstanding accuracy with each swing. The real "magic" of the VooDoo is the high modulus carbon stabilization rib running the length of the shaft. "Our S-core Technology dramatically stabilizes the shaft's cross-section through the use of an internal carbon-fiber rib system," said John Oldenburg, Aldila's Vice President of Engineering. "The innovative rib structure increases hoop strength/stiffness so much that it is 80 percent greater than conventional graphite, and up to 60 percent greater than competitors' attempts at cross sectional stabilization."
