Michael Vrska, Director of product development:
"We created a world-class product that will appeal to
a wide range of players, including the game's best.
We spared nothing in designing it, and our expertise in
hybrid technology is evident the first time you hit it."
How it works: The forgiving "Boxer" head (MOI is 2,880 g x cm2, 18
percent higher than Idea Pro Gold) helps misses hug the target. Plenty
of back weight gets shots airborne with ease. A lively maraging steel
face boosts ball speed. The 7-gram steel screw helps fitters handle
shaft-weight differences in Tour models and custom orders. Comes in
Matrix Ozik Altus graphite (lower flight) or MRC JavlnFx (higher flight).
Idea Tech a4 hybrids (19° and 22°) form a lovely package with Idea
Tech a4 irons (5-PW). "The development process for the irons started
on Tour. Then we added forgiveness characteristics to make them
the right choice for a wide range of players," says Vrska. The forged
cavity-backs have a rear "stabilizer bar" to minimize impact vibration.
Four mini-cavities enhance forgiveness and lower the club's CG.
