CARLSBAD, CA - SKLZ, the industry leader in sports training products and equipment, today announced it has introduced The Refiner® Pro Graphite Hinged Training Driver as part of the company's line of golf training aids. The Refiner Pro Graphite is the only hinged training club available with a graphite shaft.
The graphite shaft of the new Refiner Pro Graphite more accurately provides the weighting and feel of a real driver. It features a patented, two-way adjustable hinged design that allows you to maintain a proper swing plane and steady tempo. Swinging too quickly or off-plane will cause the hinge to break.
"One of the great things about the Refiner Pro Graphite is that it feels more like your own driver and you can hit real balls with it," said Greg Shoman, vice president of marketing, SKLZ. "This allows the feel of a correct swing to translate into your own club perfectly. Other hinged training clubs are extremely heavy, so there is no other hinged training club that has a swing weight so similar to a real driver."
The Refiner Pro Graphite gives instant feedback on tempo, timing, swing plane and clubhead position. The dual-adjustment hinge allows you to loosen or tighten the tension based on what you're working on in your swing and the desired levels of tolerance. The two-tone shaft guides an on-plane swing while a patented see-through grip guide provides ideal placement for your hands in order to best square the clubface.
The Refiner Pro Graphite can be used at the range or at home, any time of the year. It includes an adjustment key/divot tool. The suggested retail price is $119.99.
