Credit to Titleist for not only having a manageable schedule, but for sticking to it as well. It's been just about two years since the 714 iron series was announced, and so, right on time, here's your first look at the upcoming 716 series irons.
From what we can see in these USGA photos, the 716 models features a slightly more aggressive aesthetic than past revisions of the AP series, but we're certain that Titleist fans are going to like what they see from the entire lineup.
Carlsbad, Calif. (June 29, 2015) - Two years ago, TaylorMade Golf Company changed the golf industry by releasing the then-most advanced putters the company had ever created - the Daddy Long Legs and Spider Blade counterbalanced putters. In 2014, engineers upped the ante with the release of the Spider Mallet counterbalance and ultra-stable Ghost Spider Si. Today, TaylorMade has changed the game in putter technology and performance with the announcement of the release of the new Daddy Long Legs+ Putter; the most technologically-advanced and stable putter the company has ever created.
The DLL+ putter features the new SuperStroke XL 2.0 grip with 125 gram counter weight and a True Temper lightweight steel shaft for extreme counterbalancing to maximize stability during the stroke. The DLL+ puts 200% more weight above the hands to raises the balance point 2" to allow greater control of the heavier head. Combine this new balance point with the 8856 MOI of the DLL+ head creates the most stable overall putter TaylorMade has ever created.
Crafted incorporating feedback from TaylorMade Tour Professionals, the new design of the DDL+ features updated styling with a sleek matte black finish with premium accents including a new non-glare tour satin grey finish and contrasting alignment lines for enhanced alignment and confidence at address. The complex construction of the Daddy Long Legs+ features 17 individual pieces, meticulously engineered to create the highest-performing, most stable face-balanced putter in the TaylorMade lineup.
Another feature found on the Daddy Long Legs+ putter is TaylorMade's new deep-milled 6061 13-gram aluminum insert, inspired by Tour player feedback and engineered to deliver a crisp, clean feel off the putter face and a smooth, accurate roll. The rough surface of the insert also softens the sound at impact, delivering more auditory feedback preferred by better players.
"With Daddy Long Legs+, the stability and performance of our counterbalance putters have been taken to the next level," said Clay Long, Senior Director of Product Creation, Putters. "We've taken one of our most popular putters of all time and added performance features to deliver a remarkably stable putting stroke, which golfers of all abilities can benefit from."
Pricing, Options and Availability Available domestically July 15, the Daddy Long Legs Plus is priced at $249, and is offered in a single bend 34.5", 36" or 38" shaft with SuperStroke XL 2.0 grip. For more information, visit taylormadegolf.com.
Aldila is proud to announce the latest offering in the Limited Edition Rogue shaft series. The Rogue Black 110 has been used in the driver of the winner of the first two majors of the year. The Limited Edition Rogue Black 110 is available in both 60 and 70gram models in Tour S and Tour X flexes. Aldila will begin shipping the Limited Edition, Made in the USA version of the Rogue Black beginning July 13, 2015. The Rogue Black has a suggested retail price of $799.
The Aldila Limited Edition Rogue Black shafts employ 'Graphitic Carbon' with a modulus of 110 MSI (million pounds per square inch). The modulus of the graphite material used in typical graphite shafts ranges from 33 MSI to 55 MSI. By incorporating this new material, Aldila is able to make the shaft stiffer and lower torque without adding weight. At the same time, the placement of the material in top third of the shaft (grip end) allows the shaft manufacturer to slightly counterbalance the shaft to work well with today's heavier driver heads and the longer length of modern drivers.
Worldwide, players using Aldila Rogue shafts have now won 21 events. With results like these, there's no surprise the Aldila Rogue continues to be the most popular driver shaft series in play since its introduction on Tour.

Nike Golf is making the Vapor Speed driver with Tiger’s exact specs available in limited quantities for anyone who wants to go at it like a 14-time major champion.
The Vapor Speed TW driver ($399) features many of the same design characteristics as the standard Vapor Speed including a reinforced cavity back for added forgiveness and improved launch conditions and a compression channel in the sole for faster ballspeed on shots struck in the mid and low areas of the clubhead.
All the technology comes in a more compact, pear-shaped clubhead that is permanently bonded with a fixed hosel rather than the adjustable version available in the standard model. The TW also features 10.5-degrees of loft and comes with a Mitsubishi Diamana Blue Board 73 shaft.
“Stability has always been the most important thing to me when choosing a driver,” said Woods. “I like the pear shape. It is appealing to my eye and it also has a slightly lower MOI (Moment of Inertia) that allows me to shape shots easier.”
The Vapor Speed TW driver will be available at nike.com on June 1st and at select retailers on June 15th.
