Utilizing a three-stage thermal treatment process, our new AZR alloy oﬀers a more responsive microstructure for better feel, more forgiveness and more performance while maintaining the same strength as its predecessor
One-of-a-kind, OLS, Outer-Locking System, attaches the barrel to the handle from the outside in, creating the stiﬀest connection available, while dismissing virtually all vibrations on contact for the strongest, smoothest swing yet
Using a Longitudinal Groove System, LGS, across the thickest section of the barrel wall allows for excess weight reduction while also increasing ﬂexibility for an increased performance zone
Multi-variable wall design creates an expanded sweet spot and thinner barrel walls that are more forgiving after oﬀ-centered contact
Ring-free barrel construction allows for more barrel ﬂex and increases performance with no "dead" spots
Power-loaded barrel results in a higher M.O.I. and end-loaded feel for eﬀortless power
Two-piece hybrid design combines a carbon composite handle with the AZR alloy barrel designed for power
Professionally inspired handle features a removable taper and an ergonomic knob shape for more top-hand control and comfort
