Aldila Voodoo
  Aldila Voodoo
Free shipping continues on the Aldila Voodoo NV and Voodoo VS shafts. Link below 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." Visit the Aldila Voodoo Web Site here http://aldilavoodoo.html . For a chart showing launch and spin characteristics of the entire Aldila line, go here http://www.clubmaker-online.com/products/aldila.launch.html

If you're looking to upgrade the shaft in your hybrid, you might consider the Aldila Voodoo (link below). Same S-Core technology as in the wood shaft that, according to Aldila VP of Engineering, John Oldenburg, " resists shaft ovaling and deformation during the swing, which maximizes energy transfer to the ball and yields unparalleled distance and accuracy."

Yamada Handmade Putters
Those of you that are putter collectors might enjoy the Yamada Milled handmade putters from Japan. Mr. Yamada is a putter craftsman that has been making putters for companies around the world and decided to release his own line of putters. They're made from the highest grade of carbon steel and are available in 4 unique finishes. The Yamada putters are available as a component or assembled, send me a note for a price quote.

Yamada milled putters are produced in four fabulous finishes with each having it's unique feel. Burning Copper is the softest of all the metals and the feel is simply sensational. It's like no other putter and with time the copper darkens to a darker browner finish however the feel and performance will always remain the same. Smoked is a charcoal style finish that gives the look of a raw finish and is popular with golfers that are looking for a putter with less glare. While not quite as soft as the Burning Copper it's a close second in terms of feel. Soft Black's a traditional deep chrome-like finish providing a darker grey finish. Soft Black is very popular with most golfers. The only slight negative being that it can sometimes produce a slight glare off the putter so it's not the ideal finish for golfers located in a hotter brighter climate.

Aerotech Golf Shafts
I recently added the entire line of Aerotech golf shafts to my catalog. Aerotech has been making cutting edge golf shafts for 15 years.

Their Steelfiber shaft line is of particular interest to me. They make a wood, iron, and hybrid shaft that has a high modulus graphite core covered with a thin (about 1/10th the diameter of a human hair) steel fiber coating on the outside of the shaft. This gives a unique combination of steel-like control but at lighter weights and with the vibration dampening properties of graphite.

Their Steelfiber model is priced reasonably, too. Woods are $59.50, hybrids are $45, and the irons are $41 for parallel and $43 for taper tip. I'm in the process of adding the entire line to my website, check out the link below for pictures and specs. Send me a note for order instructions or call 810.923.7396.

Fourteen Golf
I added the entire Fourteen Golf lineup to my catalog a few weeks ago. They're starting to make a splash on the pro Tours with some top ten finishes over the past few weeks.

Their forged wedges have a reverse taper design with an additional groove for higher CG and spin. The new MT28-V5 conforms to the new USGA groove regulation. A customer of mine recently picked up a set of the new wedges and they're sharp. Available in a standard finish and a matt black finish with Dynamic Gold or Nippon N.S.950 shafts. I can also do shaft upgrades (KB HiRev, etc). Follow the link below to the Fourteen Golf website for specs. Send me a note for my pricing.

Hot Shots
Another nice win last week for the Aldila RIP at the St. Judes tournament. Winner also had a Voodoo in his bag. The eagerly awaited RIP is supposed to ship in July, watch this space for pricing and availability. I've been working on some unique Ipad and Iphone protective "Skins" with the RIP logo (skull and crossbones) that includes a free RIP logo wallpaper. Cool way to hotrod your Iphone or Ipad and protect the devices from scratches. I'll have pictures and pricing shortly. I can do Ipod/Ipad branding with your logo, too. Send me a note for a price quote.

Penley had a top ten finish with their new Heater 2 Hybrid shaft. Great new wood and hybrid shaft from innovation leader Carter Penley. Info here http://www.clubmaker-online.com/penley.html .
