Remember the Kick X golf balls? I’m sure you’ve seen them on TV many, many times thanks to the Golf Channel.
Kick X created some terrific golf balls with a unique alignment tool to help you sink more putts. They also have soft touch around the greens among other things.
But that’s not what I wanted to talk about. The same guys who made those awesome golf balls have also just created some golf clubs to go along with their signature balls.
Specifically, I want to talk about one of the most important clubs in the bag and that would be the driver. Kick X’s driver however is different from traditional drivers.
It’s incredibly, a combination of a driver, fairway wood and hybrid. They call it the Blast DriveWay and it’s a Fairway-Driver Hybrid (Say that three times fast) and I’ll tell you right off the bat (Or in this case, right off the club face) that it’s a really good club.
First thing you’ll notice right away when you look at the club is the super awesome, amazingly cool head cover. It’s a boxing glove, which pretty much tells you that the driver really packs a “punch” and features the cool Kick X logo on it.
The next thing you’ll notice is that the club head is gorgeous. It features an orange, white and black that could definitely turn some heads on the golf course.
Probably the biggest thing you’ll notice with the head is that it’s much smaller than most drivers. This is really cool as it’s small enough to where you can hit shots off of the fairway so if you ever wanted to use your driver as a fairway wood, then here’s your chance.
Despite the smaller clubhead, this beauty still goes a long way. Another cool thing about the smaller clubhead is that it makes it easier to make better contact.
Sometimes, if play with a driver with a larger clubhead, you can sometimes chunk it due to the thick size. Since this head is smaller, you have a better chance of avoiding the ground with the bottom of the head.
The bottom of the head on the Blast DriveWay is more of a cavity kind of bottom. This can really help you make smoother swings.
One of the cool features of the Blast DriveWay is the clubface. With the Kick X golf balls, the signature feature of them were the alignment lines that featured two lines side by side with a small line in between. This can lead to more “deadeye” putts if you read the green correctly.
With the Blast DriveWay clubface, it features the signature “X” in the middle of it with black and orange lines side by side. What’s nice about this is that it makes extremely easy to tell where your sweet spot is, obviously being the “X” (X marks the spot right? YAR!).
The shaft is a beautiful orange and while color and is made by Grafalloy. As we know, Grafalloy is widely regarded as one of the best shaft companies in golf known for there stability which leads to more powerful swings.
The grip is awesome. It’s your popular velvet style but has a softer feel than most and compliments the rest of the club nicely.
Overall, the Blast DriveWay ia great driver and was a bold move for a company that started with only golf balls. They decided to use their minds which helped create their wonderful golf balls to create a beast of a driver.
It has the power of a driver, accuracy of a fairway wood or hybrid.
