KRANK GOLF - Your comments & experiences & impressions

Working in the golf industry for the past 14 years I have come to know just about every brand Krank Golf included, but many golfers out there might not be as familiar with the brand and others like Krank.

 

I am currently working on a piece about Krank Golf and would love to hear about your experiences with the brand or comments about what you have heard about Krank Golf. Even if you have just heard about them in passing I would like to hear your impression of the company.

Never heard of it until just this second.

 

 

Edit: Yes, I had heard of them. I went to their website and looked. I had heard of them but I do not think of Long Drive as real golf. I think of getting it in the hole not off the tee.

Not really aimed at Krank, but component companies in general…In the past, they always seemed to be so condescending when referring to the large OEM's stressing that the difference in equipment between the two is marketing. They would go into detail about tolerance, and their ability to hand pick heads to spec. Once the club is built, fit and finished, it usually ended up about the same or even higher priced than the leading driver after a professional build. Today, with the adjustability and custom options offered by the adjustable drivers, I get the impression they have become an irrelevant niche. Maybe I am wrong in my thinking, but for the same cost, why wouldn't you want a driver that companies spend millions of R&D dollars on?

I will also add, the local fitter near me used to carry components only for custom builds only 4-5 years ago. Now, they have every major OEM in their shop. What wins on Sunday sells on Monday.

My impression - Crazy drivers that fit better for long drivers than average golfers. I honestly think that an image as being a company for long drivers hurts them.

 

Love the designs, the "mean" look on the black drivers. Always wanted to try one. I friend - pro who played a short while in Asia - had one but the shaft was way too stiff for me. I like to pull these "unknown" brands out in the open and present them in our magazine. May have to order on now :) Thanks for making me curious!

A: As mentioned above, generally discussed about for the Long driver stuff.

 

B: A few guys play them around here. Part of it will be the player but what I've seen of them is they're super long, not particularly forgiving and have a distinct sound.

I considered purchasing one of their driver heads a few years back because of the availability of very low lofts. Ultimately, did not make the purchase. Most thought of as component or long drive use when I think of Krank.

Hi krank golf, i am about to purchase a driver and was about to go ahead with the wishon 919thi because of its reviews and superb forgiveness across the face, particularly on off centre hits, can you tell me how your krank rage compares to this, is it a forgiving face on heel and toe its, by forgiving i mean do you lose a lot of distance on these hits, i dont want a club that hits 280 out the middle but only 200 out the heel or toe, as being a 12 handicap this is very important to me,your club looks great but will it give me what i need, thanks, Ian

Ian1, Thanks brotha...Our clubs are forgiving and do not lose distance on heel or toe shots on the face. The main things our clubs do is produce more ball speed while limiting spin rate. By lowering spin rate and increasing ball speed, that is where the distance is. The design of the head, with the raised center sections gives you more stability at impact on miss hits, and allows for a even distribution on miss hits.

After smashing in the face of 2 Ping drivers I started looking at component companies. I looked at Krank but ended up going with Geek. Krank has a great product; it just was not for me. Just look at the results for the last 3 or 4 years in the Long Drive world. They are doing very well and I think they have won the Championship the last 3 years. When I bought my first component head a lot of people said that it was dumb because there is no market for re-sale. When I buy a driver I am not looking at re-sale, I am looking at performance, fit, and durability. I am not sure about Krank's warranty but Geek offers a lifetime warranty as long as I own the clubs. There is no OEM Company that will offer me that. Each golfer has their own preference or reason to buy whatever brand they like but if you want to buy equipment based on performance facts and not brand names, you should consider buying component drivers.

I have one of the Krank Rage 6* loft Drivers with a 50" Fujikura Firewire shaft XX stiff that I use for practice. I hit it 40 metres longer then my RBZ.

 

I also have 2 of their hybrids in 16* & 25* that rotate in and out with my adams and 59's.

 

Both Vince and Lance at Krank provide an excellent service and go out of their way to make sure everything is spot on.

 

Hitting the 50" driver for the first time is definitely different and it makes you precise with your swing to get centre hits. I am at the stage now where I will bag the driver for my next round.

 

As far as the hybrids go, I use the 16* instead of a fairway wood and find it to be very accurate and as long as a 3 wood. (for me anyway)

 

I can highly recommend the team at Krank and can dispel the thoughts that they are just a long drive company.

Welcome, Krank. I have a Krank RHCP 7.5* driver and a 15* 3W. The driver is the longest driver I hav ever hit; I hit the longest of my life with it at 392yds (it was downwind and the fairways were as hard as the cart paths, but that's beside the point). I actually still use the head on a Black Ops XS tipped at 46.5"; it's my scramble driver. They're customer service is also very good. I smashed the face in on my first RHCP and they had a replacement to me very quickly. I visit their website periodically to see their new offerings and I will be considering them for future purchases.

I've honestly never heard of Krank Golf until now. Good looking website. I'm always open to a driver that is just as straight and longer than my driver.

 

 

Honest question though....is your new Rage Black going to be just as straight, but longer than my 910D3?

Thasnks FirstKart.....Our RAGE Black line is our first touch in the Golfers clubs...more presentable at address, more controlling and longer shots. The Driver did great and we said now is the time to use what we know and make some better Hybrids. The new RAGE Black Hybrids are just that. Its KRANKSTERS like you AJ that allow us to grow and get to where we are now. Thanks Vince
