New Royal EZONE: “A New Era in Distance”

Date
08 February 2019

Yonex Co., Ltd. is proud to announce the next generation in its Royal EZONE series — specifically designed for golfers with slower swing speeds — incorporating new technology and design principles that add effortless distance. The new series, consisting of driver, fairway woods, hybrids and irons, will see the mens’ and womens’ clubs released during March.

The new Royal EZONE is a premium line of clubs, developed at Yonex’s Niigata manufacturing headquarters in Japan and incorporating precise graphite technology to inspire golfers to have confidence in achieving greater distance. The Royal EZONE driver, fairway woods and hybrids feature Namd* graphite in the crown and a new Power Groove Sole design to allow the club head to compress and snap back, launching the ball with added speed for greater distances. Additionally, the driver incorporates a vertical polish face, while the fairway woods and hybrids include diagonal grooves, both designed to reduce damaging side spin on the ball, maximizing distance and accuracy.

The Royal EZONE irons integrate a new four-piece head construction, which utilizes two types of graphite to improve feel and reduce weight. Additional tungsten inserted in the sole lowers the center of gravity, and along with a flexible face helps golfers hit high, long and penetrating iron shots. All clubs in the series feature specialty Royal EZONE shafts, combining next-generation graphite’s Namd and Nanometric DR** for light and flexible shafts that provide high-velocity, high-trajectory shots.

* Namd is a technology developed by Nitta Co. to uniformly disperse carbon nanotubes onto graphite fibers on a nano level
** Nanometric materials are developed based on Toray Industries' Nanoalloy® technology

INNOVATION

Driver

Namd Graphite Crown + Power Groove Soul combine for higher ball speeds off the entire face
By incorporating Namd in the crown, a unique graphite that maintains its flex at higher speeds, the new Royal EZONE crown flexes at impact and quickly snaps back, improving repulsion in the upper part of the face. Also at impact, the Power Groove Sole allows the lower part of the club face to further compress to catapult the ball for greater distances, from anywhere on the face. In testing this combination of technologies resulted in drives that averaged 4.4 yards further*, from five different points on the face.
* Test performed by hitting machine; results in comparison to previous model

Vertical Polish on the face improve distance and accuracy
Traditionally, face polishing is performed in a horizontal direction, but the driver adopts a new vertical polish. A design that eliminates the need for grooves on the face, whilst improving shot accuracy off the tee.

Fairway Woods & Hybrids

The Groove Flow Concept for each club face produces a stable accurate ball flight
Fairway woods and hybrids feature a slanted groove face design that prevents grass and moisture from coming between the club face and the ball, helping to stabilize the ball flight by reducing left and right side-spin for improved accuracy.

Irons

New Graphite-Hybrid Irons with four-piece head construction for maximum distance
A high-resilience new face material, tungsten weighting in the sole and two types of graphite complete the four-piece head construction that combine to generate exceptional distance with penetrating pinpoint accuracy.
Using maraging steel AM365 which increases strength by 12% compared to the previous model, allows the face at the upper and lower parts to be reduced to 1.9 mm.
Furthermore, adding G-BRID (graphite hybrid) to the blade allowed for 0.5 mm thinner than the previous iron, resulting in a face that can flex and realize even higher repulsive force.

Shafts

Royal EZONE Specialty shafts combine two cutting edge graphite’s for high trajectory and high velocity
Based on Toray Industries' next-generation aerospace materials, the high-strength graphite material "Nanometric DR," assembled with proprietary nanoscience technology, is light and flexible while at the same time providing excellent impact strength. 
New-dimension graphite "Namd" features high strength and while flexible, very quickly returns to form when flexed. This capability allows it to catapult the ball at amazing speeds.
