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.

 

 

JBones......Thanks brotha...that RHCP was our first driver we ever produced and it was a hitter!! We just got some Black Ops in to test with, so I will be posting ball speeds numbers and other data I collect as well on here. We love to test lol Our new site is allowing us more areas to give discounts for filing information out and interacting with us more. So if your looking for the best discounts, go ahead and visit the site and fill out the boxes. Our drivers and our Company only get known more when they are in your hands, so yes when a CS club is sent in, We do all that we can to get it back to you! Thank you again for being a Krankster for these all these years!! Thanks Vince

I hit a buddy's Krank Rage (9* loft, 44.5" & Aldila Authority Light Tour Shaft/Stiff) when we went over to Oakmont for our last inter-club swat about a month ago. He plays outa there and is their past Club Champ(3 time). He hits a big ball..LOL

 

Nice driver, hot face. I would probably go with the regular Tour shaft as I like a little heavier shaft. I only hit it on the practice tee and I hit it right before my radiation therapy, though my two longest balls were a good 10 yds past where my best RBZ T & i20 land, and if ya remember the practice tee from the pics or TV, there's a tree @ 290 yds, & I haven't hit this tree in 3-4 years(with roll). I did with those two balls. Impressive.

 

Due to the weather and my health, my best days are behind me for this season, though I am seriously considering gettin one and takin it out next spring. Ya make a hell of a driver Vince, but then, you already know that. LOL

 

The Best to ya

 

Regards,

RPJIII ..... The Light Tour shaft is a good shaft, lots of kick when timed right...the Tour shaft is little heavier and stouter tip. Great shaft also. The best thing after seeing it hit your longest balls since, it only gets better. Which is what we want to do. When your ready brotha, hit us up...we can stil make a driver for you to get back that yardage. We have done it before, we will do it again....Thanks again...Vince

BK...Yes it will not only be as accurate, but longer as well. Email me when you can and I will see what we can do to get a test out of this, and video. Hopefully that will show you that you can have distance and accuracy in one club. Thanks Vince

Welcome to the site, I took a look at the website and noticed only 1 style driver. Is that the only driver you make now or is this the head geared to the public? Also are these heads COR tested? Obviously some of us are getting a little older and the club head speed slows down when you try and compare how you hit the ball in your 20's when now I'm pushing 50 years of age. So if there's really a club that will give me 10 more yards i'll take it.

TW, Thanks for the post and reply. Yes that is our head we use now and produce, for both Long Drive and Golf. Giving all swing speeds an increase in ball speed and lowering spin rates down. Our heads are COR tested and CT tested in house in Tempe as well two times while being made at foundries. Slower swing speeds will get as much pop as higher swing speeds do, so all ranges can benefit with our Krank Golf Drivers! Thanks Vince

Vince,

 

Great to see you getting some publicity on here, never had a bad experience with your company. Currently I'm hitting the original Krank Rage with an Aldila Proto by You x-stiff, tipped 1/2" with a final shaft length of 44.5". I don't stretch as much as I used to and don't play as much as I used to but I'm still hitting the ball every bit as far, maybe farther, and much straighter than before. I plan to upgrade to the Rage Black and perhaps a hybrid so I can finally get rid of my 2-iron.

 

Full disclosure, I've always been a non-OEM guy. I'm 6'5" and started building my own clubs when I was 17, I've never been a scratch golfer but personally always thought that my Maltby forged irons performed as well as anything else I'd played and I could customize, and I enjoy the work. I have always looked around for unique clubs that may provide a cost benefit or simply a niche club that an OEM may not look into making. I say this because that mentality led me to Krank 3+ years ago and ultimately to purchasing the original Rage in spring of 2010. I love it! Nothing better than driving a short par 4 or having an iron into a par 5 then having people ask if the club is legal.

 

Great company, great product, and they even make a white version for those who still have the need to fit in with the cool kids.

I've hit the Rage a few times and own a Geek DCT. I was trying to find a 5.5 rage not long ago for scrambles and screwing around with but alas, I started ho'ing Tour Issued TMag drivers for a while.

 

Vince,

Will some of your guys be teaming up with Kevin Bullard for the charity scramble in Rockmart, GA again this year for the youth baseball team? I couldn't get off work to support the guy that used to work there at the time that was working with Kevin to organize it. I almost bought one if the autographed Krank staff bags he was auctioning off, but didnt pull the trigger, since I no longer had any of you guys product.

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.
