Lynx Golf has announced the VT Stinger driving irons and Prowler Forged irons and both are available on their website lynxgolfusa.com.
The VT Stinger is available in 12.5 and 16-degree options with variable face thickness that moves weight towards the edges of the face for more forgiveness and higher MOI. Lynx says this reduces the amount of sidespin which impact is off center by up to 36% for better accuracy and distance. The design is a classic muscle back with a satin chrome finish and priced with a KBS Tour steel shaft at $129 or $20 additional with a UST Mamiya Recoil graphite shaft.
The Prowler Forged irons are made from 1020 carbon steel with progressive offset throughout the set. Heads are CNC milled with five fixed tungsten screws for exact weight positioning giving a low center of gravity while raising MOI. Blade lengths are 20% larger than Lynx’s other forged irons and have better playability.
Note the idea of tungsten weigh screws across the rear of the head was first used by Lynx in 2004 and though others, most recently PXG, have built them into their irons Lynx beat them all by over 15 years.
Sets include 5-PW and are available with either KBS Tour 90 ($999) or UST® Mamiya Recoil ($1,169) shafts. Both 3-iron and 4-iron are available to purchase separately.
“Our Prowler lines have been embraced by players around the world because they perform incredibly well and have a beautiful aesthetic that speaks to avid golfers,” says Steve Elford, CEO and co-owner of Lynx Golf. “These additions to the collection fill two spaces our customers have been asking for, a driving iron with outstanding performance and without the standard bulky look of modern hybrids, and a cavity-back forged iron that looks and feels as good as our blades but offers added forgiveness.”WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?
