Air Force One Tees Up Air Foil Fairway Woods

PALM DESERT, CA  (August 3, 2016) – Air Force One has unveiled its exciting new Air Foil fairway woods.

Offered in a 15-degree 3-wood and 19-degree 5-wood, the Air Foil features technology that helps shots get airborne quickly and easily. Because fairway woods generally sport a shallower clubface, their trampoline effect is reduced. The Air Foil's dual slot wave design,  however, creates an accordion effect: The thin face flexes inward at impact, initiating the buildup of Nitrogen pressure inside the clubhead. Then a trampoline effect takes place, as the face is thrust back to its original position at a high velocity to generate rocketing ball speed and increased distance.

The club design increases how fast the face flexes at impact, promoting faster ball speed across the face, which promotes consistently longer distance on every swing. The dual slot wave design creates a high launch angle with a tight dispersion, making an ideal fairway wood design for players who have difficulty hitting a 3-wood off the fairway. To further enhance shot performance, the nitrogen valve is positioned to increase MOI and create an optimum launch angle.

“Our brand is known for producing easy-to-hit equipment that increases ball speed for more distance,” says AFO President Ross Kvinge. “One thing we see is average players having a difficult time getting fairway wood shots up in the air. Thus, our goal in the Air Foil dual slot wave design and independent testing shows we achieved our goal. Add in the nitrogen-charged technology and we gave the new Air Foil a one-two punch for increased distance and accuracy.”

forc1b.jpgPriced at $199.99 US apiece with Tour Grade shaft options, or at $149.99 US with an Air Force  One Fujikura shaft, the Air Foil fairway woods employ the edge-to-edge sweet spot already known in the DFX driver that greatly enhances forgiveness on off-center hits. Through independent testing, the Air Foil proved to be one of the easiest fairway woods to hit off the deck, creating a high trajectory on-line to the target.

I have a DFX Tour Driver with RIP Beta shaft.....I used it on Sunday and it performed as well as my current Cobra King LTD. That said, the DFX tour was made by Powerbilt, this new 3 wood is now made by Air Force One, which separated from Powerbilt in January..

So, out of curiosity and a slow day at the office, I went to the Air Force One website (afogolf.com)......Take note AFO, all of the links for online dealers still reference Powerbilt.......need to change that.  I also tried to find the new 3 wood online.....nobody has it.  So i selected the "contact us" button on the AFOgolf website....and got a blank page.  I selected the 30 day trial button for details...Oooops! once again it has referenced a powerbilt web page that does not exist.

 

 

Suggestion to the new Air Force One company.......fix this stuff or you may never get any business.
