(OAKBROOK TERRACE, IL) – Zero Friction Golf Products, widely known for its colorful line of one-size compression fit gloves and Spectra distance golf balls, has once again been recognized by peers in the golf industry. Zero Friction won an ING Industry Honor award in the Product Ingenuity - Miscellaneous Products category for its growing line of Supertubes.
Nominees in 12 categories are submitted throughout the year from anyone in the golf industry. Sub-committees that include people with expertise in specific categories then trim the entries to the top three in each category. ING members then vote electronically to determine the winners, who are announced and recognized at the Industry Honors Presentation Press Conference each January.
“When we released the Supertube last year, we forecasted sales at 10,000 units. Within a few months, we had sold 50,000 units. It was beyond my wildest dreams that this product would be such a big hit among consumers,” said John Iacono, President and Founder of Zero Friction. “And now, we are receiving an Industry Honor award from our peers. I am honored and humbled at the same time.”
Zero Friction Spectra Supertubes include a golfer’s favorite accessories in one convenient tube: one men’s performance universal compression fit glove, 3 Spectra matte finish golf balls and 10 ZFT Maxx 2 ¾” 3-prong tees. Supertubes are available in six cool neon colors (neon lime, neon red, neon orange, neon fuchsia, neon white and neon yellow) as well as licensed team emblems featuring NFL, MLB, NHL and the top 20 collegiate teams.
Last week, Zero Friction announced that the popular Supertube line had expanded to include the new Super Sleeve, which has seven matte finished distance golf balls in one clear tube and can be custom logoed for tournaments and events.
This is Zero Friction’s second ING Industry Honor award. The company received a 2016 Industry Honor Product Ingenuity award for the DistancePro GPS glove at the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show.
