New A-Grind UT Proto:
Yusuke Ako-san who was the lead designer for Royal Collection from 2004 to 2013 for all their clubs including woods, irons, wedges, and utilities. He is the man! after years working for someone else he decided to branch off focusing his efforts and years of knowledge on A-Grind Golf. The result has been a brand that creates some of the best players fairway woods and utilities clubs today, not to mention unreal performing wedges, blades, and cavity backs.
Let's talk about feel while you look at it's perfectly shaped face profile, it's soft with a dense crunch to it, the ball pops off the face well it's got a 455 Stainless Face with a 17-4 stainless body which is what the better player wants for the best combo of feel, spin, and workability. I found it very easy to pick clean off the ground and no problems getting it in the air, its slightly shallow but not too much I would rank this as the most beautiful face profile of any Hybrid I've seen.. ever!
It's for sure designed around feel & workability, good distance, I consider this a purists club.
Forgiveness is very good I would attribute that to its face depth & shape, it being slightly shorter heel to toe and a sole design that just flat out works. I also think the slight cut up or cut away near the rear keeps this as a mid trajectory lower spin more workable format.
Available in 17, 19.5, 22.5* lofts as head only or you can contact [email protected] for a custom build
- Review of A-Grind 2 hybrid proto. Review by Bruno
Overall Quality Performance Design
The A-Grind 2 prototype with the Trpx shaft is the best hybrid that I have ever swung in my life! Classical look, clean, sleek and mean! It has given me the ability to take out my 3 wood! I am going to order the 4 prototype from Chris as soon as I finish this review. I highly recommend adding these marvelous weapons to your arsenal!
