It has taken me a little while longer than normal to do my review of the new Champ Zarma FLYtees. The reason is that I haven’t been able to get one into the frozen ground here for a couple of months! Finally the thaw level is down enough that I can get a tee longer than .5 inches into the turf.
How much can someone really say about a golf tee? You stick it in the ground and put a ball on it, right?
The FLYtees are made from a biodegradable but durable plastic. I didn’t know that was possible, but very good to hear.
The head of the tee features six prongs, twice as many as other friction reducing tees. The extra prongs allow for more stability of the golf ball, and easier placement of the ball on the tee.
On The Course – Durability
A box of FLYtees contains 30 tees. If you don’t lose them, they’ll last a really long time as they are super durable. Even in the cold here I have yet to break even one.
Do I notice an increase in yardage or accuracy? No. But a tee can’t do that and be “legal” anyway.
There are 10 colors of FLYtee available.
The FLYtee series comes in three sizes:
A neat variation of the FLYtee is the “MyHite” model. Why Champ likes to combine two words into one is BEYONDme, but hey in cool with it… The MyHite is essentially a FLYtee with measuring lines. The lines allow you to visually see tee heights for consistent ball position on the tee. That is a brilliant idea which I’m surprised nobody has thought of yet!
Champ offers custom printing on the FLYtees with the following specs:
* Up to 4 lines of print, 18 Characters and spaces per line.
* Print Area: 3/8″ high x 1″ wide.
* Size imprint as large as possible.
* The more letters & lines used, the smaller the print will be.
* Printing available on 2 3/4″ and 3 1/4″ sizes
* 1 or 2 color printing available
* Multiple type styles available
The FLYtee won’t add 20 yards to your drives or increase your driving accuracy by 40%, but they’re very durable and easy to use.
