Moving parts in a driver??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

So, while at the driving range testing out clubs I overheard discussion of another Taylormade freaky concept. A driver with moving parts. Perhaps some of you have heard about it before, but this was my first time hearing of it. 

 

TaylorMade MOAD Driver   *edit I am not certain this is the club but it fits the description I heard*

 

From what I was hearing the guy had been to some golf equipment show and this driver was discussed there. Some crazy nonsense about the driver "fixing" the clubface during the swing or some such. I think that he said something about one of the "fins" coming out during the swing to help open/close the face determined by the path the club is taking... Or you can preset a specific fin to come out every time.... Regardless, it's insane and ridiculous.... I've heard of non-conforming clubs before, but this would take the cake.

Never heard of it. Sounds strange. Anybody else?

It's a concept driver that is not within the rules of golf. 

 

But concept drivers are for research ...

 

Don't expect his one ... ever.

Moving parts within a club are non-conforming.

Yep, companies like Taylormade have computer programs that can simulate metal properties not even created yet. They probably had a computer program develop a concept idea. Its a good way to test the boundaries.

It was one of the drivers they "showed off" as part of their "Hack Golf" things.

 

It's a "concept" like those futuristic cars and things.
