While at the PGA Show a few weeks ago, I was working on a freelance golf writing gig for my local golf association’s quarterly magazine (Fairways Magazine). The focus was Utah companies on display at the show. I found a very cool new company called Switch Belt. Switch is a one year old company which makes very unique plastic golf belts. Yes plastic.
Switch belts are made out of a thermoplastic resin (TPR). (Now this is starting to sound like a golf ball review. No the core of the belt doesn’t decrease spin and increase carry. Nor does the ultra thin cover of the belt produce high spin around the greens.) But, the thermoplastic resin is an Eco-friendly plastic which is biodegradable.
Just a video or two left to post from my 2012 PGA Merchandise Show HOG World Tour stop. This video features Wilson Golf’s Michael Vrska, Global Director of Golf R&D. Michael talks about the new, super low compression Wilson Duo golf balls. I’m anxious to try these and see how they feel.
