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 ... Read More

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 ... Read More

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 ... Read More

After a brief hiatus, I am back and ready to ruin the day of marketing departments across Carlsbad! I kid, somewhat - after all, I don't know for sure that this is the secretive Callaway Epic "jailbreak" technology. Golf gear heads will know what I am referring to, however if ... Read More

In the past few years Callaway / Odyssey has started to move away from their reliance on the 2-ball design and has launched a few unconventional putters, which leads me to wonder what is behind a recently filed trademark application for the SIDE SADDLE mark. Any guesses? The application is available ... Read More

Yesterday Triple Tee Golf teed off a new patent infringement lawsuit against Callaway Golf, continuing its quest to monetize US Patent 7128660 (full Complaint here). As industry insiders know, Triple Tee Golf is no stranger to litigation, and rarely do their lawsuits go smoothly (not that any really do). In ... Read More

A patent issued this week to Callaway Golf and suggests that they have been doing some serious brainstorming regarding the future of adjustability. The drawings below come from the patent and an associated provisional application.

Just a Matter of Time?

by David Dawsey /

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)? ... Read More

Yes, as usual, if my prediction is wrong I will go out and buy one! 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.
