G.R.I.P. “Hot Steel” Fairway Woods

by Golf Research In Play

The G.R.I.P. “Hot Steel” Fairway Woods are made from a heat-treated, H2045 cast stainless “Hot Steel,” which is lighter and stronger than the standard metals — 431 and 17-4 steel — used in most fairway woods. By working with H2045 steel, G.R.I.P. decreased the clubs’ face thickness from the standard 3.0mm to 2.0mm. This reduced thickness and the clubs’ shallow face enable the ball to be launched with intense velocity. The clubs’ overall design, including their back-of-the-head weighting, produces higher ball flight and lower spin conditions for unmatched carry and roll.

Shape You's Review:

Uh oh, what happens when somebody makes beautiful clubs that play great and sell for half the price? Looks like we're about to find out. We're huge fans of what the people over at G.R.I.P. are doing. Just because a guy can't afford a 6 figure yearly greens fee doesn't mean he doesn't want to play with nice clubs. These guys are really making that happen with their affordable, quality clubs. These woods were our top club choice this year.
