Dear solution-seeking golfer:
The lessons didn’t help much, did they?
Neither did tweaking your grip or revamping your backswing.
And that golf-fitness regimen? Hey, at least you gave it a try.
Now here you are, all that time and effort and money gone down the drain…
Wondering why the heck your tee shots are still short and crooked. It’s a puzzler, for sure. But we know the answer.
Ready? Here it is:
You’ve been doing it backwards.
That’s right. Backwards.
See, you’ve been trying to make your swing work with your driver. When what you really need is a driver that works with your swing. Sorry, we would’ve told you sooner – if such a club had actually existed.
It didn’t. Now it does.
And man, are we itching to tell you about it. But we sense you wanting to interject. What’s on your mind?
“Let’s back up a minute,” you’re thinking. “How can my driver be the problem? A dozen top pros play the exact same club.”
Fair question. We’ll respond with one of our own:
Of course they don't. In that case...
But if you’re carrying a big stick built by a major equipment brand, we’ve got news for you:
That’s exactly what you’re doing.
And it’s killing your game.
Here’s our brief, brutally honest explanation:
With a clubhead speed of less than 100 MPH, you just don’t have the juice to handle a driver made for guys who swing at 113 MPH – the PGA Tour average.
Hence, you suffer from some or all of these misfortunes:
It’s enough to make some golfers quit the game.
But we’re glad you hung in there.
Because your struggles will soon be history.
Thanks to a single golf club.
Built not for them, but for you.
Your swing speed.
Your strengths and weaknesses.
Your habits and quirks.
This is your club – and it’s going to change your game.
This is truly exciting stuff.
So exciting, in fact, we forgot to introduce ourselves.
We’re Dennis and Carl Paulson – no relation, but co-hosts of SiriusXM Radio’s “Inside the Ropes” program and commentators on the network’s PGA Tour broadcasts.
We’re both former pros, too. Dennis won the 2000 Buick Classic, beating David Duval in a playoff, while Carl claimed two victories on the circuit formerly known as the Nike Tour.
OK, enough about us.
Let’s talk about the GX-7, starting with a short list of things it will do for you:
Wait till you see the rest of the list.
In the meantime, we want to answer some questions you’re surely asking about the GX-7.
A: Hardly. The term “driver” doesn’t begin to do it justice.
It’s true, the GX-7 is meant to replace your current driver. But this isn’t like, say, swapping one four-door sedan for another.
It’s more like trading that sedan for a sporty coupe.
A sporty convertible coupe.
We’ll run down the technical differences between the GX-7 and a conventional driver in a moment. For now, we’ll sum up the GX-7 as the first club that strikes the sweet spot for loft, length and clubhead dimensions between a driver and a 3-wood…
… With a sole that mimics a 7-iron…
… And numerous design innovations that make it unbelievably powerful, accurate, forgiving, consistent and easy to hit.
Combine these unique features and the GX-7 boasts some big advantages over a standard driver. Including this one:
With a little practice, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to hit it from the fairway.
That’s right. Off the deck.
Can you do that with your current driver? Didn’t think so.
A: Totally fair question. Short answer: No.
Here’s the extended version:
Logic tells you that with its higher loft, smaller clubhead and shorter shaft, the GX-7 isn’t built for long-drive competitions.
Instead, it’s designed to make you CONSISTENTLY LONGER.
Meaning: Your average drive with the GX-7 will beat your average with a traditional driver.
How can that be? It’s pretty simple, actually.
The GX-7’s design, which features extreme perimeter weighting and a hot stainless steel face, is much more forgiving when you fail to connect with the sweet spot. (If you’re like most amateurs, this happens fairly often.)
The upshot: better distance and accuracy on miss-hits.
We’ve got proof, too, with results from a group of regular golfers who tested the GX-7 against their own drivers. That’s coming soon.
(Spoiler alert: The GX-7 more than held its own in the distance department while delivering astounding accuracy.)
A: Glad you asked. It’s all about the sole… and the center of gravity.
Thanks to its unique design, the GX-7 works best when struck with a slightly descending blow, just like your irons and hybrids.
It’s the opposite of how we’re taught to hit the driver.
You realize what this means, right?
It means that
No need to play the ball way forward in your stance when teeing off.
No need to catch the ball on the upswing to produce maximum yards.
No need to change your setup and thought process for 10-14 shots per round.
No need for extra-long tees, either.
Just swing the GX-7 like a 7-iron – and smoke it like a driver.
A: Hmmm…is your swing speed at least 100 MPH?
Do you average 250+ yards off the tee?
When you slice, is it on purpose?
If you’re shaking your head “no” and chuckling, you’re gonna love the GX-7.
A: Excellent question. Here are three good reasons:
1) Adjustable clubs aren’t 100% adjustable.
Sure, you can change the loft, lie and face angle to meet your needs. But in many adjustable drivers, the CG (center of gravity) is high and near the clubface – good for pros, bad for amateurs. Even if you can move the CG, you usually can’t move it enough.
Also, you could get stuck with a one-size-fits-all shaft length, typically 45” – 46” for today’s drivers. That’s too long for most of us. (FYI: The GX-7’s shaft is an easy-to-control 43”).
2) You’re wasting money on settings you’ll never use.
According to Golf Datatech, a leading research firm, only 1 in 3 golfers who buy adjustable drivers actually change the settings - ever. (You’re also spending a chunk of your $400 - $500 investment on the big brands’ massive marketing costs and tour pro endorsement fees… But that’s another story.)
3) The GX-7 is essentially “pre-adjusted” to match the typical of golfer's swing.
As we’ve already stated: If you can bomb your current driver 250-plus and slice-free, congratulations – you’re in select company. And the GX-7 isn’t for you.
This club is designed for players who need help in the distance department, struggle with the ol’ “banana ball” and make inconsistent contact from both tee and fairway. Sound like anyone you know?
On a related note, you may be considering a professional fitting for your next driver or fairway wood. That’s a great idea – assuming you don’t mind spending an extra $150 – $300 on top of what you pay for your new toy.
Odds are, the fitter will recommend a club that closely matches the GX-7.
By the way: On the off chance the GX-7 doesn’t work with your swing, it comes with a money-back guarantee. (Full details in a moment.)
A: As you know, a slice is caused by an open clubface – and conventional drivers are notoriously difficult to square up at impact.
The GX-7 makes it easy.
First, the GX-7’s exclusive, multi-functional face progression helps you close the clubface and catch the ball squarely. Now, throw in three more slice-fighting factors:
1) Extra loft
2) A low-and-back center of gravity
3) A shorter shaft
Add it up and you’ll enjoy notable improvement in your slice – without changing your swing.
A: That’s the beauty part – this thing is amazingly versatile.
Once you get the hang of hitting it off the deck, the GX-7 will be your go-to club for:
A: Yes, indeed. The GX-7 is 100% conforming.
Hopefully, our answers have allayed any concerns.
If so, your next move is simple.
All you do is…
"The GX-7 allowed me to hit the ball straight. I hit every [ball] right in the same path, and the fact that I could get it out there farther than the driver was impressive. I've never hit the first shot with a new club off the tee like I hit this one."
"I think I'd rather hit the GX-7 than my driver right now. Compared to my driver, the GX-7 was easier to hit, as long as my driver, and I think that the dispersion on it was much better than my driver."
Still want to know more about this amazing new club?
No problem. We’ve got tons yet to share.
Including reviews from golfers who have tried it.
Who better to extol the GX-7’s benefits than the lucky “guinea pigs” who tested it against their very own clubs?
One even called it…
That was Jim Bedore, a 23-handicapper at 67 years old.
No wonder Jim pines for the days of persimmon – he once carried a sub-12 handicap.
Now that he’s discovered the GX-7, he may get there again.
We’ll hear from Jim in a minute.
First, let’s set the scene:
On a sparkling October day at gorgeous Seven Canyons Resort in Sedona, Arizona, we randomly picked a half-dozen golfers to try the GX-7.
Their handicaps ranged from 11 to 23, with swing speeds of 70 to 93 miles per hour.
Each golfer hit a series of tee shots with his own driver, followed by a batch with the GX-7. They tried the GX-7 without a tee as well.
A TrackMan launch monitor recorded every detail – including carry distance, total distance and dispersion from the target line – on every shot.
In all honesty, we weren’t sure what to expect when the testing began. Questions swirled across the valley floor…
Slowly but surely, the answers became as clear as the high-desert sky.
Surprisingly, the GX-7 stood toe to toe with the players’ own drivers for total distance (carry + roll).
(FYI – The testers’ own drivers were made by the usual Big Equipment suspects.)
The GX-7 was consistently long, too, faring especially well on off-center hits.
Our No. 1 question had been answered in the affirmative.
That was good.
But the next finding was even better.
To gauge accuracy, TrackMan measures how far each shot finishes from the target line.
Well, this competition was no contest.
The GX-7 won hands-down, delivering some truly remarkable results.
Tester Jimmy Buck nailed one tee ball 16 feet left of target; his next shot finished 8 feet right. The one after that was 1.3 feet from perfection. Not yards. Feet.
Not to be outdone, Ron Graham roped a GX-7 drive within 4 inches of his line.
Nate Bradley missed the target by a whopping 26 yards… total… over six shots. That’s an average “miss” of 4.3 yards.
Dave Stuart couldn’t match those results, but he came close. He poked four drives an average of 5.3 yards offline.
Most amazing of all, persimmon-loving Jim Bedore lasered a three-drive sequence within 1 foot, 2 feet and 6 feet of his aiming spot.
(Funny side note: Jim’s feat caused Carl to quip, “That’s closer than you can chip it,” to which Dennis replied, “That’s closer than I can putt it!”)
Suffice it to say, Jim was instantly sold on the GX-7.
“I've never hit the first shot with a new club off the tee like I hit this one,” he gushed. “And the fact that I could get it out there further than (my) driver…it was impressive.”
As for our off-the-deck tests, well, those results were just as striking. Indeed, several golfers were shocked by how easily they got the GX-7 airborne.
To say the GX-7 got these golfers’ juices flowing would be an understatement.
Key stats: The GX-7 beat his driver for average carry and total yards.
“I'm 70 years old, I've lost a lot of distance. I played (recently) with three big hitters; I was 50 yards consistently behind these three guys all day long. (The GX-7) has shown me that I could be right next to them, and if I was next to them I would beat them.”
Key stats: Jimmy’s longest shot with the GX-7 traveled 230 yards, beating the longest with his own driver (226.8 yards). He also hit the GX-7 an impressive 219 yards off the turf.
“The GX-7, the solid feel on the face seems to be spread from heel to toe, whereas my driver requires a very solid hit in the center of the clubface. The GX-7 was easier to hit, as long as my driver, and I think that the dispersion on it was much better than my driver.
I can flail away with it as hard as I want to and it will stay in the fairway.”
Key stats: His average shot with the GX-7 finished 15 yards closer to the target line than attempts with his own driver – and with an average of 246 total yards, the GX-7 generated virtually the same distance.
“I've never grabbed a club like that and been able to tee it up and replicate my driver, and then hit it off the deck. The GX-7 was more penetrating than my driver – it just felt like I could smash it harder. The ball rolled out farther with the GX-7 than the driver.
I’ve tried to hit drivers off the deck just fooling around at the driving range, and it’s always comical. But I hit that (GX-7) off the deck solid.”
Key stats: We told you about Jim’s crazy accuracy. Better yet, he didn’t sacrifice distance – Jim’s yardage with the GX-7 came within a couple club-lengths of his driver.
“I like the fact that the GX-7 (shaft) is shorter. And the fact that I could get it out there further than the driver. That was impressive. I like the fact that you can play the GX-7 back in your stance a little bit, hit down on it and not be afraid. You can’t do that with your regular driver.”
These were some happy campers, alright.
But we wanted to be absolutely sure the GX-7 was performing as well as our eyes – and the testers’ beaming faces – told us it was.
So we turned to TrackMan expert Rob Rashell – Head of Instruction at the TOURAcademy TPC Scottsdale and a former tour player himself – to interpret the numbers.
Rob’s bottom-line take:
Here’s Rob review of the GX-7:
By day’s end, all our questions had been answered. (Not to mention a few golfers’ prayers.)
But you probably still want to know one thing:
The GX-7 was specifically built for amateur golfers. Now here’s a little irony for you:
The designers of the GX-7 weren’t some ragtag team of radicals working out of a dirty garage.
Believe it or not, they built their careers (and reputations) crafting clubs for major brands.
If that seems strange, think of it this way:
Contractual matters preclude us from using the designers’ names, but we can give you a little more background.
As we said, the pair made their bones working for “Big Equipment.” In fact, they’ve helmed some very high-profile projects.
While we can’t name those either, we’ll tell you these guys have landed numerous clubs on Golf Digest’s prestigious Hot List – the industry equivalent to the Academy Awards.
Unfortunately, the GX-7 has about as much chance of earning Golf Digest honors as it does of winning an Oscar. Big Equipment’s products rule the Hot List. (And the magazine’s ad pages. Coincidence? You be the judge.)
But the majors don’t hold a monopoly on innovation.
Now, you may be thinking we merely crossed a driver with a fairway wood and declared it “revolutionary.”
There’s a lot more to the GX-7 than that.
The heart of the GX-7 lies in its sole.
Check out the GX-7's underside and you'll find a wealth of beneficial features.
A high-density tungsten bar around the trailing edge: One of the GX-7’s coolest features, this wrap-around bar serves two purposes:
1) It pulls the clubhead’s mass back and down, creating a super-low CG for ideal launch angle and spin rate from tee or turf, and…
2) Moves more mass to the perimeter, raising the GX-7’s moment of inertia (MOI) for archer-like accuracy – and outstanding forgiveness on miss-hits.
A leading edge like an iron: Softly curved at the front and from heel to toe, the GX-7 literally glides across the surface when hit from the fairway or rough.
No matter your angle of attack, you’ll experience no snagging…no digging…no bouncing.
A “no-friction zone” behind the leading edge: Here the sole is recessed ever so slightly, a huge help to golfers who “flip” the club through impact.
Rather than the sole skipping off the turf, the bottom of the GX-7 stays above the ground plane – so you won’t lose clubhead speed or catch the ball thin. Your good swings will produce longer shots, too.
Bonus: The no-friction zone prevents the GX-7 from hanging up in long grass, so trouble shots are a breeze.
Let’s continue our tour with a look at the GX-7’s frame.
It’s made from ultra-light yet incredibly strong titanium, which allowed the design team to strategically place more mass around the clubhead – maximizing MOI. The extra-thin clubface produces faster ball speeds by virtue of its high “characteristic time” (CT) or rebound effect.
Finally, there’s the shaft – or as it’s often called, the “engine of the club.”
Just as you wouldn’t put a 4-cylinder in a Ferrari and expect world-class performance, you can’t stick any old shaft in a hot-rod like the GX-7.
That’s why the design team spent so much time under the hood.
Working with 25 different manufacturers, they developed a proprietary shaft – available in your choice of four flexes – that’s perfectly matched to the GX-7’s clubhead for maximum speed, plus optimum launch angle and spin.
Put it all together – iron-like sole, titanium frame, sizzling clubface, supersonic shaft – and what do you get?
We know, we know.
Hard to believe one club can right so many wrongs and do so much for amateur golfers.
How is that possible?
Well, to be perfectly honest, traditional equipment has set the bar pretty low. It’s been holding you back.
The following info shows you just how far…
TrackMan, the world leader in golf data analysis, has collected mountains of statistics from both pros and ams.
And here’s what they’ve found:
Yes, 30 yards – the difference between hitting a wedge to the green or a 7-iron.
That sink in yet? OK, on we go.
Using stats from more than 10,000 golfers at all skill levels, TrackMan determined that the typical golfer loses 30 yards due to factors such as too little ball speed and too much backspin.
These seemingly small ingredients knock off a ridiculous 24 yards of carry and 5-6 yards of roll per drive.
“That’s good to know,” you may be thinking, “but what does it have to do with the GX-7?”
Pretty much everything.
The GX-7 is by far the best club that I've used right off the deck. It gave me more control. I could get more power behind it. It just felt natural.
"I've never had a club that I picked up and went to a driving range and hit it as good as I hit [the GX-7]. I've lost a lot of distance. I play with guys who hit it way farther than I do, and with this club, I feel I could be right on their tail, every time."
We’d be willing to bet that most of the 10,000+ golfers tested by TrackMan share something in common:
They play drivers mass-produced by golf’s dominant brands.
We’re sure of it because four companies account for about 75% of all drivers sold.
As for the other 25%, most are made with the same formula as the Big 4’s.
Which means nearly all amateurs are playing drivers made for pros.
Drivers made for guys who never miss the sweet spot and value workability over forgiveness.
…mass centered too high in the clubhead and too close to the face…
…shafts that are too long and don’t always pair well with the clubhead.
The GX-7, on the other hand, was created to work with your swing. Hence, you’ll get:
All this in a club that doubles as a fairway wood.
Well, what are you waiting for?
|Conventional Driver||GX-7 “X-Metal”|
|Designed For||Professional golfers (average swing speed: 113 MPH)||Amateur golfers (average swing speed: <100 MPH)|
|Loft||8° – 12° Not enough to launch the ball high off the tee, let alone get it airborne off turf; also, less loft = more likely to slice||14° Promotes ideal launch angle off the tee and makes the GX-7 a double-threat – with a little practice, you can hit it off the deck; plus, more loft = less likely to slice (and you might even hit a draw)|
|Length||45” – 46” Too long for the average golfer, costing you control and ball-striking consistency (i.e., distance)||43” Easy to square the clubface at impact, improving accuracy, consistency and distance; controllable on shots off turf|
|Center of Gravity (CG)||Too high and close to the clubface, increasing spin, decreasing roll and total distance for golfers with sub-100 MPH swings||Lower and farther from the clubface, decreasing spin, increasing roll and total distance for amateur golfers|
|Clubhead Size||440cc – 460cc Many golfers find maxed-out clubheads ugly and awkward... and forget hitting this monster from the fairway||267cc Large enough to provide extreme MOI, unmatched forgiveness and confidence at address; small enough to comfortably hit without a tee|
|Shaft||Multiple choices of flex, weight, torque and manufacturer – but which one is right for a particular club? Which one is right for you?||Four options, both designed exclusively for the GX-7, each optimizing launch angle, spin rate and ball speed for regular golfers|
|Price||$400 - $500 (Add $80 - $250 for a customized shaft)||A whole lot less, as you’ll find out shortly|
|Guarantee||30 days, but... But hit it once and kiss your refund goodbye||60 days. Hit it all you want and get your money back if you’re unsatisfied for any reason whatsoever|
|Bottom Line||It’s designed for pros, it’s only good for one thing and it costs a small fortune… with no guarantee of satisfaction||It’s designed for amateurs; it’s long, versatile, and insanely straight; it’s far more affordable than a conventional driver… and you’re guaranteed to love it.|
Yes, the GX-7 is every bit as good as we’re making it sound.
Maybe even better.
Still, we understand if you’re not convinced. After all…
You’ve been bombarded by Big Equipment’s marketing blitz for years (if not decades).
You’ve watched the world’s top players use Big Equipment’s clubs to blast 350-yard drives and shred mammoth par 5s.
You’ve read about Big Equipment’s technological innovations.
And Space Age materials.
And R&D budgets that would make the Pentagon blush.
So yes – we get it.
Remember what we told you right up front?
That your approach to improvement is totally backward?
That you should stop trying to change your swing to fit your driver?
That you need equipment made for amateurs, not pros?
Well, we stand by those statements.
We’ll also add this:
Not when you can replace your driver (and maybe a fairway wood, too) for a whole lot less…
With a club that’s designed to max out your distance, your accuracy and your consistency…
From the tee, the fairway, the rough and the scruff…
We think you’ll agree when you see the GX-7’s special introductory price. Before we reveal it, though, consider this:
A new driver from Big Equipment costs $400 - $500. Upgrade to a custom shaft and you can add another $80 – $250.
So you’re looking at a minimum of 400 bucks, perhaps as much as $750 (!), for a driver that’s not even made for your swing.
Now to soothe your sticker shock.
Through this limited-time introductory offer, the GX-7 is just $199 (including headcover).
Put another way: Buy the GX-7 today and your $199 investment is – at most – half what you’d shell out for a major maker’s latest driver.
That’s what we call serious value.
While we’re at it, here’s another advantage to buying the GX-7:
Sure, you can return that $500 driver to the manufacturer if it fails to deliver as promised.
But it better not show so much as a dimple mark on its fancy face.
That’s right – hit a single shot with your brand-name club and it’s bye-bye, refund.
You swing it, you bought it.
If you buy from a retail shop you might get a 30-day guarantee, and they’ll take back clubs you’ve already hit.
Of course, there’s a catch.
Instead of cash, they’ll probably give you credit toward the purchase of another club.
Another over-priced, under-performing club.
Call us old-fashioned, but we think you deserve some peace of mind when making such a major purchase.
So here’s our offer:
How’s that for standing behind your product?
Just to be clear, you can hit the GX-7 to your heart’s content…
Pound buckets of range balls off tee, turf or mat…
Play all the holes you can humanly handle…
In the rain, sun, sleet or snow…
And, should you reach the end of 60 days without marked improvement in your long game…
Or you’re dissatisfied with the GX-7 for any reason whatsoever…
Just send it back and we’ll refund what you paid (minus shipping & handling).
The way we see it, this decision is a no-brainer.
If you agree that $199 is a phenomenal value for a distance-boosting, slice-killing, consistency-enhancing club – backed by a 60-day, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee
– there’s only one thing left to do...
SWING IT LIKE A 7-IRON. SMOKE IT LIKE A DRIVER.
