Why forged Irons will always make the best Golf clubs
Hi there. My name is Jennifer King and I’m the owner of the KZG Performance Center in the heart of Palm Desert. I wanted to share with you today some of the models of forged irons that we carry. It’s a big part of our business and we carry lots of models and I want you to know that we’ve won lots of awards for our forgings and our innovation in forgings.
But first, let’s talk about the forging process because some of you might not know about it. First we start with a billet of virgin carbon steel. We then heat it to 1200 degrees Celsius. We use a 50 ton forging hammer and when you hit it — splat — this is what you get and we cut it out we then take the iron and we heat it up to 800 degrees Celsius and now we — splat — hit it again with the 50-ton forging hammer. In the end, what it does is — all this pressure and all this heat — we actually compress the molecular structure of the metal.
In cast clubs we heat the metal and we pour it into a mold. The chances are there might be some bubbles or some voids in the metal. But by using the forging process we’re compressing it so tightly that there are no voids or any bubbles or anything. The reason the better players prefer forging is because on the surface of the club head — whether they hit here or here — they’re going to get a consistent shot whereas on a cast head they might hit there and under the surface there might be a very small void which makes it act a little differently.
So if you can afford it forgings are the primo irons to have.
KZG — here’s just ten models that we offer. We go from a forged blade. This is only designed for a better player. It doesn’t have perimeter weighting but what it gives, it gives the player fabulous feedback and a lot of workability with this club. A lot of coaches for juniors prefer their students to be playing with a blade because it forces them to hit the middle of the face.
Next we have a whole variety and range of club heads. Here we have the Evolution III which is a beautiful club but this one has perimeter weighting on it so it’s more stable. When you hit it there’s more mass out towards the toe and so there will be less twisting of the club. This too is preferred by the better players.
Next I’d like to share with you this series of irons. This is the ME the MA and the MO — expert; avid; oversize. These three sets of irons can actually be mixed and matched to suit your game. For example let’s say you need a little more help and forgiveness on the long irons. Then you might want to go with the MO’s. But around the greens you’re really a sharp shooter so you might go to the ME or MA. Your fitter can actually select the exact iron that will do best for you. You’ll notice that on each iron — you see, this is more of a player’s and this is more of a higher handicap player with a wider sole — each one is different but they can be mixed and matched to make a unique set just for you.
Now here is the Forged III. This is a fairly large oversize forging and it’s designed for maximum forgiveness with a great stable sole.
And most of our forgings — a lot of them — come in various finishes. Like here’s one forging, the CB IV, we have it in satin and a lot of people like black. We want to customize your Rolls Royce; I think you should customize your clubs don’t you?
Anyway, if you’re looking for the ultimate set of golf clubs you’re going to want to be fit properly so that every shot is in the middle of the face to get the optimum performance and that’s what we do here. We make sure you get the right model for your game. So come by. We look forward to having you soon.
