Akira Golf is proud to introduce their Prototype H3 conforming grooves Wedge.
The name Akira in Japan for some may be associated with a ground breaking animation that raised the bar for modern animation.
However, for golf enthusiasts and better players, Akira is a Japanese Golf brand that specializes in supplying specially designed prototype heads to tour players around the globe and cutting edge clubs to help all golfer's dreams come true.
TSG has partnered with Akira's Prototype and Tour division to provide customers with hand picked heads for the tour, available only in limited quantities.
In the past, Akira was a driving force in Japan especially offering custom built wedges to enthusiasts based on their original Prototype 1 2 3 series. The original series of wedges provided maximum spin and wonderful feel using 8620 mild carbon steel.
With the new 2010 Groove regulations in place, Akira evolved the original Prototype 1 2 3 series into the new Prototype H1 H2 and H3 series. The H stands for their new H design tapered groove an aggressively CNC machined USGA conforming V type groove.
Along with the soft 8620 mild carbon steel and CNC milled faces of the new Tour Wedge, spin is as good if not better than non conforming wedges of the past.
The Prototype H3 , compared to the tour wedge features a rounder shaped head and a rounder leading edge. There is a touch more offset which is really not noticeable thanks to the rounded leading edge which helps suit firmer courses. The bounce is also slightly lower on the H3 vs both the Tour and H2. The H3 has trailing edge relief allowing clean exit for any lie. The H3 wedge's rounder shape allows the player to use the whole face for more control and direction especially when the head is opened up.
TSG is offering a limited number of head only Prototype H3 Wedges directly from Akira's Tour Department.
Heads are approximately 298g in weight and available in 54/8 58/10 and 60/10 lofts.
Available in two finishes, a dark PVD finish or Satin finish, both which enhance the feel of the wedge thanks to a double plating of Cu (Copper) and NiCr (NickelChrome).
