Anyone Here or See A Driver Like This Before? Company Called Distaff?

8 posts in this topic

Head is clear and feels like maybe lucite (not very heavy). The name on the head cover and shaft is DISTAFF. It has a full size graphite shaft and golf pride grips.

I'd buy it if they would make one with a goldfish encased in the lucite.

I'm going to assume, based on the name, that its a womans club.

And for the record, I don't even know what I'm looking at there. ;)

The company was based in Miami.  The head is made of the same polymer as good bulletproof vests.  Designed for the women's market, it featured a 306 gram head, two shaft flexes, and a 42"5" length.  It was specifically designed to get the ball up in the air off of a tee for women with slower swing speeds.  At 70 mph, the ball would achieve a launch angle of 14.5 degrees.

The company went out of business, unable to crack the niche market.

I still have some clubs, including some experimental ones.  Some came in black for the people who found it to be too distracting to look through.

Doesn't look to be very forgiving. No perimeter weighting.

Kevlar is made by DuPont, a Delaware-based company

    • I am with @DaveP043  Just buy the damned tees. or as  Bernie says.."enough of the damned emails".  OTOH, nothing wrong with a bit of lively discussion supported by factual information.
    • I usually like to tee my ball 2" below waist high.
    • Nadir is technically correct but fairly arcane; I've never heard anyone refer to the lowest point of the golf swing as the nadir. I used the term "apex' because in racing it refers to the inside point of the racing line in a turn at which you're closest to the curb. The orientation of hands to clubhead at impact does make a difference. However, the naive solution to being told you're leading the club with the hands is to release your wrists earlier, and done even a little too early this results in "casting" the club which wastes most of the power of the downswing. So, you have to be real careful telling someone who's keeping his wrists too stiff to "release more".
    • Actually, I was just looking back through the old Bulls goalies and there are a bunch of familiar names. Early on you had Doug Dadswell and Sandy Galluppo. Both those guys played for the Cyclones and Sandy had a stint with Dayton before Birmingham. You were one of the many, many stops for old Kalamazoo goalie Mike Torchia, a Michelin man-looking guy that I saw play the Cyclones many times. Last but certainly not least was my old BG buddy Shawn Timm. He played a miserable 15 minutes in goal for the Bulls after his senior season with the Falcons. Gave up three goals and became an investment banker. Great memories.
    • It might not have been the security guards who suggested paying for the damages. He gave them ~ $50 cash. He wasn't 'shaken down', taken to an ATM, relieved of watch, electronics, etc. In the U.S. there is such a thing as a citizen's arrest. It's possible that in Rio some licensed private security guards may be deputized in some way with partial powers to detain for arrest. Every time Lochte's lawyer responds to a media inquiry with 'no comment' it's billable time. If they decide to answer the charges with local representation the money bleed will accelerate. I'm positive paying the donation in lieu of fine in the short term like his teammate did would have been less costly. It would have been even less costly ~ $50 if he had kept his trap shut in the media having already narrowly avoided an official 'on the books' detention / arrest / fine. http://www.people.com/article/ryan-locht-summoned-brazil
