The High Heat 460cc driver was designed by Dean Knuth, who was a Senior Director at the United States Golf Association for over 16 years. He created High Heat with amateur men and women golfers in mind, because they need a driver that is designed for them rather than the Tour pros who have different performance needs. He did so with his Optimal CG Game Changer and Fire Zone Face Technologies. High Heat was recognized as the "BEST NEW DRIVER" at the 2015 PGA Merchandise Show.
Noted sportswriter Gary Van Sickle of Sports Illustrated and Golf.Com called High Heat "the most significant technological innovation in golf equipment from this year's PGA Merchandise Show," adding that High Heat is "a game changer," and "an advantage for amateur golfers."
Tee shots hit below the center of the face can be 20 or more yards shorter than those hit above the center of the face. High Heat has a 25% deeper and 18% lower center of gravity (CG) than any of the major brands, producing more total distance and forgiveness, and a large area below the center of the face where amateurs will not lose any distance because that area is above its much lower CG.
High Heat was the only driver from the PGA Show named to at least four top products lists from various media who covered the show.
Since the PGA Show launch, the reviews have been consistently and overwhelmingly positive:
"You are going to have to wrestle it from my hands. High Heat made me feel like a pro. I just walked up and hit 8 tee shots and every one of them went right down the middle."
--Mike Stinton of The Golf Channel and Golfing Magazine
"High Heat "sounds like a cannon and goes like a rocket ship."
--Swanson Smith, a mini tour player from San Antonia, TX
"High Heat "the hottest driver coming out of this year's PGA Show. It took the Show by storm."
--Tony Leodora, host of the Golf Talk Live radio show.
"High Heat's whole face is a sweet spot. This driver is phenomenal."
--Those Weekend Golf Guys Radio Show on Golf Talk America at the PGA show.
"The (High Heat) driver could be the answer to your first-tee prayers."
--Golf Writer Tony Dear
"We definitely recommend High Heat because it is the hottest driver on the market. Longer and straighter than major brands. These benefits are based on brilliant science. Remarkable. Unlike any other driver."
--Tee It up National Radio Network.
"This is such a great driver! Oh my gosh, I have added at least 40 yards longer."
--Camille, 10 handicap with average driving distance of 200 yards. San Diego, CA
"High Heat's lower CG is very important," said Knuth. "Amateurs regularly hit in the area above High Heat's CG which is below the major brands' average CG location. Tests have proven that drives are longer when hit above a driver's CG compared to hitting below the CG."
Knuth Golf's Fire Zone Face Technology includes a unique face with a combination of seven different zones of variable thickness, including patented "parabolic" lobes at the top of the toe and heel of the face. This increases spring-like effect across the entire sweet spot zone while still conforming to USGA Rules and increasing the accuracy of High Heat.
High Heat was tested against the major brands by Golf Laboratories, which is the world's leading independent, robotic testing facility, and used by Golf Digest, Golf Magazine, and several major brands. Golf Laboratories test results show that High Heat was longer, straighter, and had more forgiveness than the major brands. Golfers who have tried High Heat's prototypes have raved about its performance on center and off-center hits, and its look, feel and distinctive sound of power.
