Award-winning design is reengineered with stronger, larger heads & packaging
(SANFORD, Fla.) - Feel Golf Co., an innovator in golf club design for the past three decades, has improved its line of award-winning designed telescopic golf ball retrievers.
"We have had great success with the sales of our golf ball retrievers, but we wanted to make them even better and promote the improved durability of the product for our customers," said Lee Miller, Feel Golf CEO and PGA Professional with a PhD in engineering. "The new retrievers are the strongest, most compact and durable retrievers offered by Feel Golf."
The new patent-pending aircraft grade stainless steel shafts are designed to keep water out, which helps prevent corrosion and keeps the shaft from freezing up. The new design also prevents sections of the shaft from coming apart, which would make the retriever nonfunctional.
This second generation retriever head is 20 percent larger, made from a stronger plastic alloy, and reengineered to capture the ball faster. The new spring-loaded head instantly traps the ball in the water, sand or mud. Once the ball is trapped inside the head, it won't come out until it is released.
"Spring fatigue and disengagement have been historical problems with previous designs of this retriever," said Miller. "So we shortened the spring mechanism in our retriever head, changed the spring wire material and redesigned the coil to reduce over extension and help capture the ball a lot faster. All of the improvements help increase the life of the product and reduce product failure."
According to Miller, Feel's new plastic alloy head also withstands deterioration that typically can be caused by certain fertilizers used on golf courses. The competition uses a different material for the head that isn't as resistant to chemicals and ultraviolet rays as Feel's new retriever head.
In addition to the improvements, two new retriever models will soon be available with carbon fiber shafts. These patent-pending carbon fiber shafts will be much lighter, have no internal mechanisms, and will be easier to use.
Feel also repackaged each of their 2012 retrievers in a hanging clamshell to help protect against damage, discourage theft, present a smaller retail footprint and improve product display. Inside each clamshell is a free retriever head cover.
Feel Golf's "Assembled in America" retrievers come in four different lengths and are made of three different shaft materials.
• 7-foot "Standard" Stainless retriever collapses to 16 inches. (Carbon Fiber with Boron will be available October 2012).
• 10-foot "Premiere" Stainless shaft collapses to 19 inches. (Carbon Fiber with Boron will be available October 2012).
• 12-foot "Bigger" Aluminum shaft retriever collapses to 40 inches.
• 15-foot "Extreme" Aluminum shaft collapses to 42 inches.
Free custom logo work can be done on the 7 and 10 foot stainless steel shafts with a minimum order of 48 retrievers. Logos and/or a message can also be added under the clear grip.
Although there have been vast improvements to the golf ball retrievers for 2012, Feel is offering this next generation model at the same 2011 price.
"With the price of golf balls today, our retrievers immediately pay for themselves," said Miller.
