Slingshot Irons

Bronze
2004

Just as oversized tennis rackets and "shaped" snow skis revolutionized their respective markets by welcoming new participants to each sport, the Slingshot Irons were made for the roughly 80 percent of the golfing market that are still improving their game. The clubs' center of gravity is suspended in the air beyond the thickness of the face, which launches the ball higher.

  • Lightweight steel alloy created less weight, which causes a greater moment of inertia (resistance to twisting).
  • Golf Digest named Slingshot Iron as "Iron of the Year."
