First Look: Golf Pride's extra-soft CP2 grips

Posted at 2:04 PM by Michael Chwasky

Cp2_gripsGolf Pride's new CP2 grips -- "CP2" stands for, comfort, control and performance -- are the softest grips in the history of the storied company's products (about 30 percent softer than any previous model). The CP2 Pro is designed with a straight textured pattern for those who prefer a velvet-type grip while the CP2 Wrap provides a traditional wrap design. The most unique feature of the CP2 line is proprietary inner control core stabilizer that is positioned in the top of the grip where the most torque takes place [photo]. According to company designers the new technology reduces twisting by as much as 40 percent during the swing. 

“Consumer testing validation was instrumental in the performance development of the CP2 line,” said Brandon Sowell, global sales and marketing manager for Golf Pride. “As soon as players took a swing, they could feel the Control Core benefits. Players commented that the fantastic feel and control immediately transferred to a high level of confidence as they stepped up to the ball. The innovation in the CP2 grips delivers softer feel with the control and durability that golfers expect from Golf Pride.”

Both CP2 models are available in standard, midsize, and jumbo ($6.99, $7.49, $7.99). For more information, visit GolfPride.com.

Limited Edition Callaway Diablo Octane Drivers

Posted at 2:28 PM by David Dusek

Callaway is offering an all-black, Limited Edition Diablo Octane Tour driver, the same club used by Fredrik Jacobson, who won the Travelers Championship two weeks ago, and Trevor Immelman, the 2008 Masters champion.

If you decide to put this club in play, expect it to perform like any other Diablo Octane Tour. Both drivers feature a 450 cc head made with Forged Composite, a lightweight carbon material that allows engineers to make lighter, stronger and more-powerful clubs, according to the company. 

There will only be 5,000 of the drivers made, all right-hand models with 9.5 degrees of loft. To complement the all-black head, the club will come with a black, 45 1/2-inch Project X 7C7 shaft, along with a black-and-white Golf Pride New Decade grip.

To get your hands on one of the limited-edition drivers, which will cost $379, contact your local Callaway dealer. You can see a list of them here.

Cobra releasing limted edition white S3 driver

Posted at 4:12 PM by David Dusek

Ian Poulter won the Hong Kong Open last fall using a very unique driver, a white Cobra ZL Limited Edition. The company made 500 of them, and Poulter, after being presented with one, decided that instead of putting it on his wall, he'd put it into play.

Today, Cobra Golf announced the release of a white S3 driver. Like the ZL last year, there will be a limited number available. Read what Golf Magazine ClubTesters think of the S3 driver or go to Cobra's Web site for more information on the club.

The driver will come standard with a white Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2G grip, and white Aldila RIP Beta shaft, for  $475 when it becomes available in early May. Right-handers will be able to chose between 9.5° and 10.5° lofts, while the 9.5º model will be the only choice for lefties. The 9.5° model will only be available in stiff flex; the 10.5° model will come with either a stiff or regular-flex shaft.
