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 78.5 cm
- Size 2 if your hand/ground distance is more than 78.5 cm
2 GRIP SIZES
The grip fitted to the Inesis 500 clubs is designed in accordance with the length of each club:
Size 1 undersize grip on size 1 shafts
Size 2 standard grip on size 2 shafts
TECHNICAL FEATURES / DRIVER 500 LH S1_HS
LOFT: HL corresponds to 12°
S1 grip weight: 44 grams
Length: 26.5 cm
Diameter: 2.6 cm
OUR DESIGN CHOICES
The 500 driver 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
Three shafts for three speeds.
We carried out a study into 100 golfers which allowed us to divide the swings of intermediate players into three groups: low, medium, and high speed.
For each speed, we selected the shaft that will provide the best distance/accuracy ratio.
The HIGH-SPEED 500 DRIVER is fitted with the Elements Gold 6F4 graphite shaft. It weighs 67 grams.
This shaft allows those with high-speed swings to achieve penetrating 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?
- 5-iron, hybrid, driver: you have a LOW SWING SPEED
- 6-iron or 7-iron: you have a MEDIUM SWING SPEED
- 8-iron or below: you have a HIGH 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, ENGINEER OF THE 500 DRIVER
"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, PRODUCT MANAGER OF THE 500 DRIVER
“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!"
