IRVINE, Calif. — Fourteen Golf, recognized as a worldwide leader in wedge design with 38 professional tour victories in 2010 and 2011, has announced that the company has shipped their new RM-11 Wedge into retail and holiday sales have been outstanding.
According to Fourteen Golf COO Marcy Kamoda, “We are extremely happy with the early sales of the RM-11 Wedge. It sold well into retail and is selling through at a positive rate. We contribute this success to the company’s reputation as a wedge authority and for the awareness it has gained on the PGA Tour. In addition, people are still looking for a wedge that conforms to the new USGA rules and provides spin. This wedge with the larger grooves has filled a nice place in the marketplace.”
The new RM-11 Wedge was a proto-type on the PGA Tour well before it shipped into retail. Its instant acceptance on the exclusive tour validated its performance characteristics associated with the enlarged grooves and detailed testing proved it.
The larger grooves translate to maximum spin with exceptional control. The new USGA conforming Fourteen Golf trapezoidal grooves have been enlarged by 15% as compared to its predecessor. This increase in overall groove volume enhances spin retention particularly on partial shots and provides extraordinary control, incomparable spin and precision like accuracy.
To ensure optimal spin with precision and tighter tolerances, Fourteen Golf mirror mills each larger groove on the RM-11 Wedge.
This additional procedure takes an enormous amount of time but it is done to achieve and attain the highest spin performance possible.
The RM-11 Series of Wedges feature a different sole shape according to a specific loft. The 48-degree loft is designed for optimum performance and control with a full shot. Where the 56 and 58-degree lofts are engineered to employ or take advantage of the bounce with an approach shot. The 60-degree wedge is designed to assist with a high lob shot.
The leading edge on this totally new wedge is relatively straight but slightly rounded to give the impression of wrapping the ball on each shot. Professionals and amateur golfers alike will appreciate the versatility these wedges provide. For a solid and pure shot the engineers designed the lie angle to be slightly upright and made it 64 degrees (for 56-60 degree models).
Touring Professionals appreciated the original “reverse taper design” so the engineers used it as a platform on the RM-11 Wedge but they increased the weight distribution on the upper blade to create a Fourteen Golf signature “reverse muscle design.” The weight is perfectly proportioned on the blade and club head which creates stability through impact.
Fourteen Golf utilized nickel chrome molybdenum steel for the RM-11 Wedges because of its durability and resistance to wear. This specialized material allows the high quality – high performance trapezoidal grooves to stay in perfect condition which ensures optimum performance. It available in a non-glare nickel chrome plated half matte finish and a dramatic non-glare black finish that gives the club head a distinctive appearance.
The RM-11 Wedges are available in one of the distinguished dealers that carry Fourteen Golf including; golf specialty stores like Roger Dunn, Golfers Warehouse, Golf Mart, Vans, Olympic Golf, Haggin Oaks and more. Also available online at www.MortonGolfSales.com. Click HERE for details.
