Innovative Counterweighted Design Increases Distance, Accuracy and Consistency
(RIDGEFIELD, CT) – Boccieri Golf announces its widely acclaimed “Control Series” Heavy Driver – named GOLF Magazine’s “Most Surprising New Club” at the 2011 PGA Show – is now available in a limited edition white finish.
Retailing for $399, the 460cc Heavy Driver is strategically engineered with a 50-gram backweight in the butt-end of the shaft. This has been shown to significantly improve tempo and stability by consistently delivering the club’s sweet spot to the ball, thus ensuring optimal distance and accuracy.
“Research and consumer testing has proven the Heavy Driver is simply a better product – one that provides superior results to any other brand regardless of a player’s skill level,” says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf. “White drivers offer an optical option that some golfers prefer, so we’re combining this with our unique technology to create the game’s most attractive high-performance driver.”
Incorporating revolutionary “Dimple Face Technology,” the Heavy Driver was developed to maximize the coefficient of restitution (COR) without decreasing durability. This allows better weight distribution throughout the head, which has slightly more mass than traditional offerings, and makes it one of the highest MOI drivers available. The benefit of additional mass is greater force at impact, which results in superior distance. The driver is available in 9°, 10° and HL or “High Launch” (12.5°) lofts with a variety of flexes in a premium Aldila NVS shaft.
Additional offerings in the “Control Series” line include:
Heavy Wood and Heavy Hybrid: Constructed of 17-4 stainless steel with a special face insert made of 455 steel, the Heavy Woods will be available in 15 and 19 degree options, and the Heavy Hybrid in 20, 23 and 26 degrees.
Heavy Irons: Designed to improve overall consistency, the Heavy Irons have a head weight of approximately eight grams more than conventional irons. This combines with the counter-weight to raise the balance point for unparalleled control. The new collection is one quarter inch shorter than irons from other leading manufacturers, promoting smoother transition and consistent contact for superior accuracy and lower scores.
Heavy Wedge: Added weight (65 grams) is positioned in the butt of the shaft, raising the club’s balance point nearly 40 percent to promote improved distance and directional control. Available in a variety of loft and bounce options with grooves conforming to new USGA regulations.
In addition to the company’s “full swing” products, its new Heavy Putter Bronze and Tour Series collections are also available. Each new offering is part of the popular MID-WEIGHT family, which independent testing indicates is preferred by 7 out of 10 golfers over the putters currently in their bags. Each incorporates Boccieri Golf’s unprecedented application of a heavier mass head and counter-balanced weight in the grip end of the shaft. This automatically engages the body’s larger, more stable muscles to promote greater stability, consistency and control.
