Twist Tee

I’ve been using some cool tees for my last few rounds called Twist Tee. These tees come with a an adjustable section which allows for customizing the height of the ball simply by twisting the top section.

Some other features include cool colors, stable ball cup (especially for windy conditions) and high strength.

Sizes

The Twist Tee comes in two sizes.  The longer size is pictured here and is adjustable from 2 7/8 inches to 3 5/8 inches.  The shorter size tees it up from 2 1/4 inches to 2 5/8 inches.

On The Course

The Twist Tee has worked well in general for me. I did have a blue model break on the 2nd drive, but the white/clear one pictured I’ve used for about 3-4 rounds now. I’ve got it tweaked to the perfect level for my driver swing and the shots launch perfectly.  See picture below.

The shorter Twist Tee model is good for teeing up fairway woods, hybrids and irons, but I prefer regular wood tees for irons.

    Good morning Tony,

    I’m just new to your site, and I tried to leave a comment on the: March 29, 2011 – “Dicks buys Nickent” story, but it wouldn’t produce a comment feature.
    I was at the Dicks in my area yesterday, and they are one of the very few in the country that just received the “new” Nickent clubs (hybrids) in a #3 (19*)/#4(22*)/#5(25*). They come in the “new” black matte surface, or the standard look. Right now, they come with the Aldila Voodoo shaft showing it’s a 85 gram shaft – (factory specs show: RSV8 R .370 .630 3.4 Mid 90g 42-3.0 A)

    I probably spent 20 minutes looking at them … I kept scratching my head as I kept looking at them, and thinking: “I’ve seen these hybrids before, but where?” …. “hey, they *look like* .. aah feels like and hits like — can it be? .. the Callaway Diablo Edge Hybrid?

    Anywaaay …. the new 2011 Nickent Golf company is actually our boy of golf for many years, John B. Hoeflich, COO… I thought those new Nickent s looked familiar. :^)
