-Alpha V5 Gets New Customizable Version-

A half decade go when I first hit a few drivers from Alpha Golf (they were founded in 2000) I was immediately impressed. Still not widely known outside long drive circles, the reputation of the company grows with each new product introduction.

Long before the TaylorMade SuperQuad arrived with it’s “Darth Vader-like” look, Alpha sported the signature Titanium Nitride (TiCn) “Black face” coating on several of their drivers.

The version of the Alpha V5 introduced officially today sports the distinctive coloring but boasts more than looks alone for uncommon characteristics.

The redesigned V5 brings with it two weight-customizable ports combined with a 460cc titanium club head and 15-3-3-3 Beta Ti clubface. That allows for numerous weight configurations, maximum Moment of Inertia for the head and aids the golfer in shaping their ball flight for optimal results based on their swing profile.

“As a part of our ongoing commitment to excellence, the V5 will be the first Alpha driver to feature optimization selections for both center of gravity placement and length balancing,” says Dr. Jim Yeh, President and Founder of Alpha Golf. “We wanted to give players the best of both worlds. Customizing the weight of a driver is nothing new. Thus we took it a step further and ensured the enhanced weight range is combined with the essential driving elements of high MOI and maximum swing speed to benefit players of all levels and types.”

Two standard 6-gram weight screws are included, while additional screws from 2 grams to 16 grams (in 2 gram increments) are also available. This allows a weight range variation of up to 32 grams for a better fit.

Like previous Alpha drivers, golfers will find a handsome club head with minimal distractions and solid feel at impact. All club heads are designed to set up square for a better look and easier alignment.

The stock shaft option is the proprietary Alpha Platinum shafts in weights of 55, 68, and 78 grams. A variety of custom shafts from Aldila, Alpha, Grafalloy, and Graphite ensure a wide range of options to match each player’s launch and swing conditions.

Lofts offered in right hand include 9, 10.5, and 12 degrees with left handed lofts yet to be announced.

You may have not heard of Alpha Golf, but don’t let that stop you from trying one. It is better to lead the charge than to get left behind. When it comes to drivers it should be all about performance, not just brand recognition and in my experience, Alpha Golf clubs deliver nicely.
