  • Video review: Srixon Z-TX driver

    Written by David Connor, TG Equipment Editor on Wednesday, 23 December 2009

    At TG we were massive fans of Srixon's impressive WR driver so we all agreed that the new Z-TX had some pretty big shoes to fill. Srixon say the Z-TX driver delivers high performance and exceptional length as a result of greater ball speed, larger sweetspot and a new face thickness structure. David Connor, TG equipment editor, and instruction editor Joel Tadman were...

    Written by David Connor, TG Equipment Editor on Wednesday, 23 December 2009

    Srixon may be better known these days as a ball manufacturer but it shouldn't be forgotten that they also make cracking golf clubs - like the new Srixon Z-TX fairway wood.

  • Meet the new Cleveland Launcher DST driver

    Written by David Connor, TG Equipment Editor on Tuesday, 22 December 2009

    Cleveland's new Launcher DST driver has been unveiled with the strapline: lighter, faster, longer. Essentially, what that means is the lighter the club the faster you can swing it and, the faster you swing it the further you hit it. With that in mind Cleveland put the previous Launcher on a strict diet and have trimmed 25g from the overall weight of...

    Written by David Connor, TG Equipment Editor on Tuesday, 22 December 2009

    The new Cleveland Launcher DST fairway woods are designed to offer players maximum forgiveness but without the ballooning ball flight often associated with forgiving woods.

A high MOI and stability...

    They're smaller than drivers but bigger than hybrids - fairway woods can be a difficult club to get right in your bag.

  • Nike Nike SQ Machspeed irons

    Written by David Connor, TG Equipment Editor on Thursday, 17 December 2009

    With the new SQ Machspeed irons, Nike claim to have invented their longest and fastest irons ever aimed at a game improver. The Machspeed irons are designed to incorporate speed, stability and launch. The speed comes from the aerodynamic design also used in the Machspeed driver, fairway woods and hybrid. This ensures less drag thoughout the entire swing and not just at...

  • New Nike SQ Machspeed hybrid

    Written by David Connor, TG Equipment Editor on Thursday, 17 December 2009

    Like the drivers, fairway woods and irons in the range, the Nike SQ Machspeed hybrid uses aerodynamics to help golfers hit the ball longer and straighter. The clubhead is designed with Total Swing Aerodynamics to ensure less drag throughout the swing - meaning the clubhead travels faster and players can potentially hit the ball further. The face is made from ultra-thin 455...

  • New Nike SQ Machspeed fairway wood

    Written by David Connor, TG Equipment Editor on Thursday, 17 December 2009

    If golfers needed convincing about square-headed drivers then that's even more the case with fairway woods but Nike's new SQ Machspeed fairway woods are determined to make their case. The theory is that more weight can be positioned around the perimeter of the clubhead to improve forgiveness but many players were put off by the bulky-looking clubs. However, Nike have worked hard...

  • New Nike SQ Machspeed driver

    Written by David Connor, TG Equipment Editor on Thursday, 17 December 2009

    The new Nike SQ Machspeed driver is built for power, speed and forgiveness - pretty much all the average game improver needs! Interestingly it is the only newly-developed square-headed driver for 2010 as rival manufacturers ditch the square shape for more conventional designs. However, Nike still believe it is hip to be square and insist the shape allows them to move additional...
