TECHNICAL INFORMATION

CLUBS THAT REFLECT YOUR SIZE

It is the distance between the ground and your hands which determines the length of your clubs. And having spent some time studying your arms, we discovered that you can be tall with short arms, or small with long arms.
Let’s put an end to preconceived ideas:
- Women should play with shorter clubs
- Men should play with longer clubs
- Short people should play with short clubs
- Tall people should play with long clubs

2 SHAFT LENGTHS

We have therefore come up with 2 lengths of club that meet the needs of 90% of golfer player morphologies.
We adapt your clubs to reflect your morphology and not the other way round.
Our research has enabled us to define two shaft lengths:
- Size 1 if your hand/ground distance is less than 78.5cm
- Size 2 if your hand/ground distance is more than 78.5cm

2 GRIP SIZES

The grip fitted on the Inesis 500 clubs also reflects the length of the club:
Size 1 undersize grip on size 1 shafts
Size 2 standard grip on size 2 shafts

OUR DESIGN CHOICES

The driver 500 has a loft of 12°. This may appear to be a lot compared with the 9 or 10.5° usually found on the market. You’ll think: “it’s too much for me, I’ll end up hitting the ball up too high and will lose out in terms of distance”. Rest assured... Our studies have demonstrated that 12° of loft enables intermediate golfers to achieve the longest distances with a driver.
We have also selected the shaft for each speed in order to obtain the best trajectory.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR SIZE

You can easily measure your size at home using the following method. That's Albert and Samuel in the video. And if they can do it, so can you! ;)

WHY PLAY WITH CLUBS THAT REFLECT YOUR SIZE?

Playing with clubs that are the correct length ensures that you have a natural and comfortable swing position for hitting the ball far and straight.
And remember that it’s not because you’re playing with short clubs that you’ll get round the course in a short amount of time. In fact, with the right length club, you hit your ball further because you strike the ball more towards the centre of the club face.

CLUBS THAT REFLECT YOUR SWING SPEED

3 shafts for 3 speeds.
We carried out a study into a 100 golfers which allowed us to split the swings of intermediate players into 3 groups: slow, medium and fast speeds.
For each speed, we selected the shaft for the optimal compromise between distance and precision.
The MEDIUM SWING SPEED 500 DRIVER is fitted with the ELEMENT CHROME 5F3 graphite shaft. It weighs 54g for a very good swing speed and its flexibility gives excellent mid-distance trajectories.

HOW TO FIND OUT WHICH SWING SPEED YOU HAVE?

By asking just one simple question: you’re on the fairway 135 metres from the flag, which club do you choose?
- no° 5 iron, hybrid, driver: you have a SLOW SWING SPEED
- iron 6 or 7: you have a MEDIUM SWING SPEED
-iron 8 or below: you have a FAST SWING SPEED

WHY PLAY WITH CLUBS THAT REFLECT YOUR SWING SPEED?

With a shaft that reflects your swing speed, you will achieve optimal ball height and distance.
- A shaft that is too rigid for your swing speed will not have enough give on impact: you will find it harder to get the ball off the ground and lose out in terms of distance.
- A shaft that is too flexible for your swing speed will have too much give on impact: your ball trajectories are too high and you will have the impression of not really knowing where the club head is during your swing.

SHARED BY ALICE, DRIVER 500 ENGINEER

"The loft is not adjustable. In reality, very few golfers adjust their driver and many do so to compensate for a problem with their swing (slice, hook, low balls, etc.). This isn’t helpful in the long term as the driver doesn’t allow the golfer to progress.
We decided to make a non-adjustable driver and instead take the weight from an adjustable hosel and put it in the right place on the driver head to create an ideally placed centre of gravity, ensuring good ball flight."

SHARED BY ALBERT, 500 DRIVER PRODUCT MANAGER

“Two terms guided us when we were designing the 500 driver: powerful and forgiving.
So that you had the maximum chance of hitting your ball a long way, but more importantly, in the middle of the fairway!"
