A few weeks ago a design patent issued covering a new iron design, and I sat on it because I thought "that can't be the new Epic irons, frankly they are kind of ugly." I was correct, so that leaves the question "what product line will include this iron design?" How ...

Take a guess, which big club manufacturer intends to include Trap Door Construction technology into their clubs, and what could it be? Well, this trademark application reveals that it is something Callaway Golf is working on bringing to the market. What could it be? I tried to come up with a list ...

I recently came across an invention titled “golf club head having a device for resisting expansion between opposing walls during ball impact.” “Hummmm, sounds like this may be version 2.0 of Callaway’s breakthrough Jailbreak technology,” I said to myself, so I read on. The abstract told me: An improved golf driver club ...

Trademark applications generally aren’t all that interesting, but two trademark applications filed in the past week by Callaway Golf have piqued my interest. The applications are: Available here & Available here Both applications list the goods as golf clubs. What could it be? A crazy new iron design with a sharp toe profile (my guess)? ...

Interestingly, despite standing alone when it comes to promoting any meaningful advantage associated with CG height adjustability, Callaway seems to want to keep the driver design in question a secret.
