A lot went into this

Jaacob: One of the common concerns that comes up with single length sets right now and it’s been a historic problem has been the distance gapping and the trajectory, so you’ve got a –

Tom Wishon: Sure. I mean, a great example of that, I was just talking the other day with a really experienced – some club maker in Germany. He had been fitting golfers in the past with previous other models of single length sets made to six-iron length, and he’d commented that when the sterling single length irons came out and he brought them into his shop and he had demos and that sort of thing, that several of the golfers he had fit with the other previous single lengths that were curious about the new technology of the sterling single length sets so they came into [0:00:47], and in ever single case, he said where the golfer had had issues with the wedges, with accuracy and distance control, and especially what you just brought up, issues with inconsistent gapping of distances between the irons, it does not happen. All of the golfers found that they were much more consistent with distance gaps with the sterling single lengths as well the performance with the wedges on the short end, around the high loft end.

Jaacob: We were kind of lucky because we had the advantage of me having the experience of playing single length sets, you with your knowledge of club making and club design, and then we also had something in the internet that wasn’t available, so we could look and see what historic problems were and what people’s comment, what people liked and wanted, and we also had the advantage of technology, people like for robot hit testing and track [0:01:43], so we really were able to – and we’re thoughtful also I think about taking care of the distance gapping for the [0:01:54] and with the bending options that are available too, you can kind of tweak it and adjust as needed.

Tom: Well, I mean, exactly. I mean, a lot of care went into the design of this. I took longer in the design of this than with any of the other 350 models.

Jaacob: This was a two and a half year development process.

Tom: Yeah, a lot of care and a lot of experience in science went into this.
