Yonex UK Ltd. Is proud to announce the launch of the new EZONE GS (Graphite Speed), a stunning range of golf clubs, inspired by Japanese graphite technology, designed to offer superior distance and control for mid handicap golfers.
The brief for the new EZONE GS range was to create a series of adjustable, playable golf clubs with an emphasis on superior speed. At Yonex HQ in Japan, our product team dedicated over 24 months of in-depth research and development using only the highest quality of Yonex graphite materials in both clubhead and shaft. This innovative technology (see below), combined with the exceptional standards of manufacturing and craftsmanship by Yonex staff in Yonex factories in Japan have culminated in a new era of explosive graphite speed.
Yonex strongly believes that our heritage of building the clubhead, shaft and grip of a golf club can improve performance for the handicap golfer, and the EZONE GS range is no different. Each driver, fairway, hybrid and iron in the range has been created with the optimal shaft weight, kick point and torque in every flex to produce maximum distance, forgiveness and feel. Yonex is widely considered as the global leader in graphite technology, with proven success in racquet sports such as badminton and tennis and continuous growth in our golfing departments across the globe.
A high-tensile, Honeycomb Structure Graphite Crown allows more flex than ever at the top of the driver face. A matt finish shows off the quality of the graphite manufacturing on the crown of the club. A second-generation Power Groove Sole has been added to the sole of the driver to allow maximum repulsion from low on the
clubface. This combination of technologies has created a high-repulsion clubface with an enlarged sweet spot and optimum ball speeds across all areas of the face. Vertical Polish on the driver face allows the golf ball to slide upwards on the face at impact, dramatically reducing the amount of sidespin that is created compared to a
‘traditional’ horizontally polished or milled clubface where the spin axis becomes tilted. The driver operates Yonex’s Quick Adjust System® for custom fitting and
2. FAIRWAYS & HYBRIDS
Fairway woods and hybrids in the new EZONE GS are designed with the combination of both Honeycomb Structure Graphite Crown and Power Groove Sole as described above, enhancing high-repulsion from all areas of the clubface and greater distance. The clubface is created from a maraging steel construction for maximum ball speeds and superior feel.
A Groove Flow Concept has been created to optimize the ball flight for each club and to promotive forgiveness. The fairway woods and hybrids have been designed with a slanted, diagonal groove that creates less sidespin and consistent backspin from all lies on the golf course for improved accuracy. All of the fairway woods and hybrids operate the Yonex Quick Adjust System® for custom fitting, forgiveness and playability.
A Four-Piece Graphite-Hybrid Iron Structure has been created for the EZONE GS iron. This revolutionary combination of a mild carbon steel body, tungsten plate, carbon graphite insert and maraging steel face offers maximum ball speed and distance, with an enlarged sweet spot for greater launch from all areas of the face. The advancement in new materials and technology create 10% greater distance from hits lower on the clubface, compared to its predecessor, the EZONE GT. The graphite acts as a damper amongst the harder metals to create playability and feel.
An EX-330 Shaft has been designed specifically for the EZONE GS, weighing just 53g in a regular flex driver shaft. The shaft is manufactured using layers of Yonex’s
super-premium graphite that promotes faster transitions for increased clubhead speeds and an unrivalled repeatability during the swing and at impact for consistency.
