The advantage is that the 450cc head, which is smaller than most heads on the market, allows you to gain more swing speed. The vertical grooves vs. horizontal grooves provide a tighter dispersion down the fairway and help you gain carry distance.
Vertical Groove Golf have always stated on average 40% straighter, not 40% straighter, which was proven at Golf Labs, the number one third party testing facility in the USA. We will be posting amateur data collected on the Flight Scope monitor very soon.
We are regularly adding to locations where the club can be tried, either on an individual basis or as part of a demo day. Please contact us at email@example.com to find out your nearest location.
The technology is really for higher handicaps as well. Most higher handicap golfers have an outside-in swing which causes the slicing of the golf ball. The vertical grooves will cause a straighter dispersion down the fairway.
Rocco (Mediate) - What was the main reason you switched from a PXG Driver (I think) to an unheard of driver with Vertical Grooves. Was it really about distance or was it about control?
It was about spin rate, distance and feel. The VGG driver felt incredibly good when I hit it. I was able to work the ball as I like to and the spin rate was 2260, exactly where I want it. It’s the best driver I have ever hit!
