Lamkin Corporation– the original manufacturer of premium golf grips – is introducing its latest innovation – Z5 – to the U.K. and European golf market from February 2017. Designed to deliver maximum control, comfort and consistency with every swing, Z5 boasts 5 distinct zones, each delivering a specific functional advantage. Using a variety of compounds, textures and colours, Z5 is the most advanced grip that the-92-year old grip expert has ever produced.

Each of the five scientifically engineered zones of Z5 are uniquely designed for a specific performance-enhancing function. The horizontal pattern and soft cord weave under the upper hand enhances grip stability and traction, while a shallow micro texture at the bottom improves feel and comfort for the lower hand. Carefully designed patterns and a simulated rope texture in the middle zone promote proper hand pressure and placement, creating a fluid backswing to better position the club head for increased speed, distance and control.

“This is the most advanced grip Lamkin has ever produced, as our team of engineers scientifically broke down the key characteristics required to properly support the top and bottom hands during the swing,” says Bob Lamkin, President and CEO of Lamkin. “We developed unique patterns, compounds, and textures for the Z5 that enhance feel and incorporate alignment aides to increase confidence and consistency with every shot.”

The high-performance Z5 grips are made from a proprietary rubber compound that ensures maximum durability, feedback and torsion control while making the grip an excellent choice for all-weather playability. The functions of the five zones include:

  • Zones 1 and 2 feature soft cord weave designed to provide the top hand with exceptional traction, enhanced comfort and slip-free confidence in all weather conditions.

  • Zone 3 includes two FingerLock panels to ensure the thumb is in an optimal position, while a simulated rope texture offers a tactile response to enhance club control without the need for excessive grip pressure.

  • Zones 4 and 5 provide an exceptional feel for the lower hand thanks to the shallow micro-texture and a V-shaped dividing groove that promotes consistent hand positioning

The Z5 is available in red, black and blue colour combinations in standard and midsize models.

Zoom golf gloves

Zoom – Fits like a glove

With its ‘One Size Fits All’ technology, ZOOM is designed to fit YOUR hand

Buying a glove is a tricky business. Every golfer knows the routine. Under the disapproving glare of the club Pro you un-wrap, force it on, flex your hand and then badly re-pack gloves in an effort to find the one that fits best. A slightly baggy palm, a tiny pinch on the knuckle, unless you’re blessed with a model hand of exact M, M/L, or L proportions your glove will be the best fit you can find, not the perfect fit.

G/FORE has shown once again it can be relied upon to influence others with its 2017 autumn/winter collection. While other school reports from the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando might have read “must do better”, G/FORE was in the good books with its Disruptive Luxury theme, which encapsulated the brand’s trademark innovative design with a hint of unconventional mischief.

Quattro – From Big Max

When the biggest names want stability and traction they turn to 4-wheel drive. So as BIG MAX sets its sights on tackling golf’s toughest terrain, it’s quite natural that the answer from the innovation leader in push trolley technology is the 4-wheel Blade Quattro.
