From 2006 through 2008 I competed in super senior division Long Drive competitions with an Xfactor Super Pro head (USGA legal big brother of the Hammer) on a Grafalloy Prototype BiMatrix X stiff flex shaft at 50" LDA measurement (48 1/2" USGA measurement). Back then I was hitting consistently 325 plus with that set up. Took me to the regional championships 2 years in a row. Those heads really do work!!! I still hit that head today on a  R flex shaft and occasionally get it out to 290. Not bad for and old fart of 63. I told Jack several times his info-mercial was really bad, but I loved his drivers!!!

LOL that's funny.... 

 

Not sure what's worse waking up to getting the hammer driver in the mail or a new wife in Vegas.

Your response made my day. Maybe even my entire week. 

 

Sounds like you were "HAMMERED"

 

That reminds me of the morning after when you are trying to piece the pieces together of what the hell happened last night. POW!!!

As I said earlier, I hit Xfactor in LD competition a long time ago. The SuperPro is a great driver head. Later on, when Jack was developing the HammerX he sent me one of the prototypes and later on one of the production models to try. I never warmed up to them, but this year I decided to give it another try. Right now I'm bagging a HammerX on an R flex Grafalloy Pro Launch Red and getting impressive results. I think the best thing I can say is it "feels" very easy to swing. Not a lot of effort gives me the same distances that I'm used to getting with other drivers. And then when I give it that little extra I get big returns.

I would have at least hit the new wife a few times before the annulment......can't say the same for the Hammer.

I had to jump in and comment in this. I bought the Hammer back in 2001 for $300. I was all excited about it. First time I took it out to the range I left with that sick feeling in your stomach when you know you just got suckered out of hard earned money.

 

The truth is the shaft on the Hammer is so darn limp that it only really works if your 90+ year old grandma is the one swinging it. The flex is so bad that I could literally hit 90 degree slices. So I threw it in the closet at my parents house, thinking I'd never see it again.

 

About a 6 months I was visiting my parents and came across the Hammer. Seeing as how I know much more about golf today than I did back then, I was curious as to how the Hammer would hit if I replaced the shaft with a stiffer one. So I spent the money and fitted it with a UST Mamiya Gold 65 stiff flex shaft. The results were shockingly awesome.

 

The Hammer head on a real shaft gave me a driver that I hit straight every time and that I was hitting 20-35 yards longer than my other drivers. I couldn't believe it. Too bad this head isn't regulation because, if it was, I'd definitely use it in tournaments.

Holy smokes...that infomercial is awesome. "The Hammer Eeexxxxxx!" Love it. And the shaft..."shaped like a sword..." Fantastic. Next time at the range, I'm yelling "Aaaaarrrrrr!" at least once.

First time I’ve seen the Hammer in-person! Played in the Sim today, and they had one in there for folks to use. Hideous, and the shaft was like a rubber hose.
