Pinhawk Deadbolt Reverse Armlock Putter

Reverse Armlock?

That’s right! At Pinhawk Golf, we realized that while armlock putting is incredibly effective, for some it is uncomfortable. The Deadbolt Reverse Armlock putter was designed to anchor to your right arm for a more comfortable and confident stroke.

DeadBolt-Collage

There’s Nothing Like It

The Pinhawk Deadbolt uses Reverse Armlock Technology that is designed so the shaft of the putter is anchored to your dominant, more comfortable right arm. This gives you more control and consistency and does not feel awkward, so you will stick with it and make a smooth repeatable stroke every time. In fact it becomes comfortable and natural. In order to accomplish this, the Deadbolt is zero degrees of loft, which produces the perfect roll for the shaft lean that lead-arm anchoring produces.

As of now, there’s nothing like the Deadbolt on the market. It’s comfortable, it’s consistent, and you will make more putts with this level of control.

Frequently Asked Questions:

The easiest way to find your armlock length would be to take your traditional putter, assume your comfortable, regular putting position, turn the butt end of the putter against your wrist area, and measure from the butt end of your traditional putter to approximately 2 inches below the crease of your elbow. Add this measurement to the length of your current putter. For example, if your traditional putter is 34” long, and you measure from the butt end of that putter to 2 inches below your elbow crease, and this measurement is 6”, your armlock putter length should be 40”. When you build the putter, if the butt end of your armlock putter is anywhere from 1” to 3” below your elbow crease in your normal putting position, you are good to go.

The Deadbolt is made of a soft 304 steel, CNC milled face, and finished off with a sharp sand blasted nickel chromium finish.

Yes! A sharp looking Pinhawk Deadbolt branded magnetic headcover is included.

Not at this time. In the future is a possibility.

No, as of right now, only Pinhawk Golf has a Reverse Armlock Putter available.

Pinhawk On-Lock Armlock Putter

Why use an armlock putter?

The USGA’s ban on “anchored” strokes has virtually eliminated the “broomstick” style and “belly” style putters, but they have deemed that a putter still “swings freely” using the method of bracing the putter on your forearm. Enter the armlock!

By anchoring the shaft and grip to your arm, you are eliminating any deviations in shaft angle from setup to impact where most putting errors occur. The Pinhawk On Lock putter is perfectly designed for this USGA approved method of putting. It helps keep your wrist from breaking, and it also helps you keep conscious of a proper rotation of the shoulders. All of this results in giving you the stable stroke you need for solid, consistent putting, and it can help with the dreaded “yips” too.

Many PGA Tour players have adopted this method of putting, and as more and more golfers give it a try, it keeps increasing in popularity. For example, Bryson DeChambeau has switched to this method and has instantly and dramatically improved his putting. Right now he is getting a lot of hype for his new distance gains, but in reality, he has reached another level also because of his new putting stroke. Some stats to back that up: In 2019, Bryson finished the season 28th in “strokes gained putting” with an average of .372 strokes gained on the field. In 2020 and beyond, he has almost doubled that to .690 gained, and 12th place on Tour. That is a dramatic difference when you are talking about the best players in the world! Bryson, love him or hate him, is a guy that loves to eliminate variables, and the armlock method does that and he knows it.

High Quality Armlock Putters Are Too Expensive

That statement has been true until now. There was a large gap in the market for an affordable armlock putter that is high quality and designed correctly. Some companies make very nice armlock putters, but the price is out of reach for the average golfer. Other companies that put out less expensive armlock putters will take a regular putter head and try to adapt it to the armlock method and call it good, but this is irresponsible. For the armlock putting method you need a putter head that has more loft than a traditional one, because of the angle of the shaft when the arm is “locked in”. We have found that 7 degrees is the ideal loft, and that is the spec on the Pinhawk On Lock. A true armlock putter head also needs to weigh more than a traditional head. A heavier head has been found to be beneficial for a fluid and consistent stroke in armlock putters. The Pinhawk On Lock at 400 grams, 7 degrees of loft, high quality 431 SS body, and precision milled face, ticks all these boxes we wanted to tick, and we were able to produce it at a price that we believe you will find affordable and a true value.

If you’re looking for help with your putting, and still want to conform to the rules of golf, try this Tour proven method of putting and give the Pinhawk On Lock a try. It will truly put your putting game “On Lock”!

Pinhawk Single Length Fairway Woods

Why single-length fairways?

If you have a trusty fairway wood in the bag, chances are your swing is the type that will benefit from single length fairway woods. The Pinhawk SLF’s can complement the Pinhawk Irons or Hybrids, or can be used with with traditional irons and hybrids. Golfers that can make a nice sweeping swing will often be better off with fairway woods than lower lofted hybrids. Even many of our customers that have the full set of single length irons or hybrids benefit from the lower lofted single length fairways (the 3 and 5 woods).

One length, one swing

You only need to train yourself to make one swing that will work for each single length fairway wood (3 wood through 9 wood). Just like with our single length irons or hybrids, consistent ball striking is the key to great golf shots. You’ll find the Pinhawk Single Length Fairway Woods to be point-and-shoot! Fine tuned perimeter weighing with a low center of gravity helps get the ball up quickly with a perfect trajectory.

Follow the shaft manufacturer’s tipping instructions for a 7H. For example, if you are building a set with True Temper Dynamic Gold shafts, they recommend tipping 3” for a 7H. You would tip trim ALL the shafts in the set at the same 3 inches off the tip. Remember, all the heads are the same weight. Then butt cut to your length. Couldn’t be easier!

We suggest a standard length of 41 1/2″; that is the “sweet spot” for most players.  If you are exceptionally tall or short, however, consider your “wrist-to-floor” measurement. For more details on how to measure your wrist-to-floor, look under “Club Length” here.

No. This would cause a multitude of problems because the heads would not all be the same weight. In addition, the loft gaps would be off.

Basically, major companies aren’t going to take that kind of “risk” and attempt to change the design perception of the entire golf industry, nor are they willing to take the time and expense needed to educate the consumer.

Pinhawk Single Length Hybrids

Why single-length hybrids?

Hybrids are uniquely designed for the distance of a fairway wood and the precision of an iron. You have a better chance of making solid contact with the ball, so hybrids are a great choice for those with less experience. But seasoned players can also benefit from using hybrids in situations where you need loft and length, but also control.

Pinhawk single-length hybrids offer a unique choice in single-length technology for players looking for consistent ball striking. Golfers of all handicaps can benefit by using these hybrids that are all specifically designed to be played at the same length.

One length, one swing

Pinhawk single-length hybrids are available in a 4 iron replacement all the way up to a sand wedge replacement. Because each hybrid in the set is designed to be exactly the same length and have the exact same swingweight and flex, the golfer only has to “learn” one swing – the swing that works best for him or her. This enables a golfer’s swing to become more easily repeatable, resulting in greater accuracy and maximizing overall enjoyment (and minimizing potential frustration) when playing the game.

You also can mix and match the Pinhawk SL Hybrids with the Pinhawk SL irons – the swingweight, flex and feel will all be the same!

Pinhawk Vertex Dual Length Irons

Why dual-length irons?

Single-length irons have already started to gain acceptance in the world of mainstream golf. Pinhawk, for over a decade, has been one of the few companies offering single-length irons, though the concept itself is not new. Our single-length irons are popular for a reason: one length, one swing. Simple as that. But is a full set of single-length irons the ideal configuration for every player?

In short, the answer is no. Why? A player with a slower swing speed may have trouble elevating their “long” irons (the 3I, 4I, and 5I) in a single-length set. If they do not have the swing speed necessary to achieve adequate launch, it can cost the player distance when using their “long” irons. The solution? Pinhawk Vertex Dual Length irons.

With one length for the 3, 4, and 5 irons and a second length for the 6 iron through the sand wedge, Vertex Dual Length irons are the best of both worlds. Two lengths, two swings – with the added bonus of zero distance loss in the “long” irons. Compare that with learning up to ten different swing paths with a traditional iron set, and you’ll see that the consistency gained from a dual-length set is well worth it!

Versatile game-changers

Pinhawk Vertex Dual Length Irons feature the very latest in iron technology. For example, the 3 iron and 6 iron have an ultra thin, high-strength cup face to increase ball speed and maximize distance. The weight saved by the thinner face is positioned to allow for an optimal launch angle. This hollow-bodied design provides unparalleled forgiveness and distance. The 3 and 6 are the irons in their respective length group that needed “extra” launch and distance to achieve proper gapping, as they are the lowest lofted clubs in their length group. The lower the loft, the higher the difficulty to launch the ball correctly, and the unique design of these two heads make up the difference needed.

Our recommended length for the Pinhawk Vertex irons is 38” for the 3 through 5 iron, which is a typical 5 iron length. For the 6 iron through sand wedge, we recommend a length of 36.5″ – the length of an 8 iron in a traditional set. Our expert club makers have the accredited skills needed to build a well-balanced set of irons. We firmly believe these irons are game-changers. Order a set today and see for yourself!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Yes. They are listed as irons conforming to USGA standards on the USGA Informational Club Database. They are listed under Pinhawk, right after Ping.

All handicaps. We’ve had success with these irons from hackers all the way to club champions. They help with consistency, and any golfer can use that.

The 3I, 4I, and 5I are cut to 38″ (the length of a 5I in a standard set). The 6I through the sand wedge are cut to 36.5″ (the length of an 8I in a standard set). We have found these lengths to be the ideal “sweet spot” for the majority of players.

If you are exceptionally tall or short, our standard lengths may not be for you. We are able to vary the lengths up to ½” either way. In exceptional cases, you can email us for recommendations for much longer or shorter sets and we will tell you if it’s possible.

Yes. The “short” set (6, 7, 8, 9, PW, AW, SW) is a no-brainer for any golfer who wants more consistency in his or her game. We honestly think, however, that you will love the entire set.

The 3 iron and 6 iron use new technology. First, they have an ultra thin, high strength cup face to help increase ball speed and maximize distance. The weight saved by the thinner face is positioned to allow for an optimal launch angle. This hollow-bodied design provides unparalleled forgiveness and distance.

Additionally, the technology used in the lower lofted club in each of the two Vertex lengths (the 3 iron being the lowest lofted club of the long irons, and the 6 iron being the lowest lofted club of the short irons) is necessary for correct distance gapping across the entire set.

We don’t have plans to produce left-handed irons at this time, but if popularity eventually necessitates it, we will consider it.

They have a 431 Stainless Steel Body and Hi-Cor 17-4 Stainless Steel faces.

No single-length or dual-length set of irons can be made from traditional iron heads. A traditional set of iron heads has a different weight for every head. If you were to try and build a set of single length or dual length with heads of varying weight, not only would your swing weights vary wildly, but the flex of each club would also be different throughout the entire set.

Yes. We can bend them upright or flat at a maximum of two degrees.

If you are building according to a tip trim chart, tip the 3, 4 and 5 irons to a typical 5 iron tip trim. Tip trim the 6, 7, 8, 9, PW, AW, SW irons to a typical 8 iron tip trim.

The recommended standard length of the 3, 4 and 5 irons is 38″ and the recommended standard length of the 6, 7, 8, 9, PW, AW, SW irons is 36 ½”.

Pinhawk Single Length Irons

Why Single Length irons?

Simply put, one length means one swing.

A conventional iron set has ½” length increments between each club. This means the player must learn different swing paths for each iron in the set. What’s more, ball striking consistency can be a major issue with a traditional, multi-length irons.

Pinhawk Single Length Irons are the solution to this problem. The clubs are all the same length throughout the entire set. That means swingweight and flex are also the same. This allows the golfer to use the same swing, on the same plane, with the same feel, for every iron in the set. The result? Greater consistency and ease-of-play, making the game of golf that much more enjoyable.

Game-improvement design

Pinhawk Single Length irons feature revolutionary technology. The heads incorporate a game-improvement design without that “clunky” look. In addition, they have extreme perimeter weighting and a true, deep undercut for the ultimate in forgiveness. Despite their game-improvement design, they have a very manageable sole width, and a low (3 mm) offset on each iron.

The loft gapping is slightly larger than it would be with traditional irons. This is to maintain a proper distance gap between clubs. You will find that your distances will be very similar to those of a conventional set of irons.

Our suggested length for the Pinhawk Single Length Irons is 37”, which is a typical 7 iron length. We can also build them as long as 38” (5 iron), or as short as 36 ½” (8 iron). Our club builders are experts at making clubs using this concept and have the accredited skills required to build a well-balanced set of irons for any player.

Moe Norman, who is considered one of the best ball strikers of all time used single-length irons. Also, Bryson DeChambeau won the John Deere Classic with SL irons, meaning they are now officially PGA Tour winners. We’re also excited to mention that Gareth Shaw, a European Tour player, is putting Pinhawks into play.

Besides being proven by real-world play, studies have been done to prove that they are a concept that works. Dave Tutleman, a veteran golf industry engineer, did research on constant-length irons. Read Dave’s extensive academic investigation here.

Mr. Tutleman also wrote an article detailing his experience with playing Pinhawks. The article is here. (In short, they are “in the bag”!) You may also want to check out press we’ve been getting from this article in Golf Digest and this article from the LA Times.

Because they are made of high-quality 431 Stainless Steel, they can easily be bent up to 2° upright or 2° flat.

We’ve had some shoot low scores right out of the gate, and we’ve had some say that it takes a few rounds for their brain to get used to the concept. Ultimately, it depends on the player.

No. The short iron heads would be too heavy, and the long iron heads would be too light. This would cause a multitude of problems. Unless you are adept at grinding and are very creative with your weighting, it is truly impossible. In addition, your loft gaps on regular iron heads would not be correct for single-length iron application.

Basically, major companies aren’t going to take that kind of “risk” and attempt to change the design perception of the entire golf industry, nor are they willing to take the time and expense to educate the consumer.

Jaacob Bowden (who runs swingmangolf.com, and is a proponent of single-length irons) had a sit down with a major golf company CEO who had this to say about the subject:

“It’s a tough concept to sell. Reality: In the US golf industry there are 6 major chains that buy product that is sold to what constitutes 85% of the market. All but roughly 2-3 % of the rest is sold in golf pro shops and they are influenced by the retailers. The buyers for these major chains only buy what is played on tour, and pretty much in order of market share. Like it or not, we dance to that tune. To introduce something like single-length after investing in the design, we’d have to spend millions on marketing and… get tour credibility, because no product is successful at retail without it.”
