I love when a golf company or manufacturer comes out with new products for the new year. I love it even more, when it's one of my favorite golf companies, Zero Friction.
Zero Friction, widely known for its one-size compression fit gloves and the DistancePro™ GPS Glove, has two new exciting products I was able to see at the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.
“Zero Friction continues to create high quality, cutting-edge, performance products,” said John Iacono, President of Zero Friction. “I am pleased to announce that at this year’s show we will be introducing the new Spectra series of matte finish golf balls and the Cabretta Elite golf glove.”
The Spectra line golf ball is a high quality 2-piece distance ball finished in 6 attractive matte colors: White, Lime, Red, Lemon, Orange and Fuchsia. The large, super-fast core provides explosive distance, high launch and longer roll off the tee.
“Our Spectra golf balls create a higher visual appeal for the player,” said Iacono. “Other countries have been selling colored golf balls for years. It was just a matter of time before colored balls caught on in the US.”
They are catching on, and these ball play just like more expensive balls from the big manufacturers.
The Cabretta Elite golf glove is the perfect fit for all golfers and at an affordable price. It is an upgrade to the original Cabretta glove released three years ago. As with all the Zero Friction gloves, the new Cabretta Elite molds with your hand for a guaranteed fit. The Cabretta leather provides a solid grip in wet or humid weather and works with smart phone & touch screen devices. The reinforced lycra throughout fingers, back of hand and palm allow for maximum strength, durability, and ability to breathe. The men’s glove is available in seven colors (Red, White, Blue, Green, Black, Purple and Gray) and the ladies’ glove is available in five colors (Lavender, Pink, White, Turquoise and Black). Also, don't forget about the women's gloves.
Zero Friction is positioning itself for a big 2018.
According to the most recent reports from the industry tracker Golf Datatech, sales of the Zero Friction golf gloves continue to soar. The 4th Quarter 2017 results show the maker of technologically advanced performance golf products has seen a 17.5% increase On-Course and 40% increase Off-Course in the golf glove market, when compared to the same period last year.
“It takes a team effort. I am thankful for my staff, the retailers, and of course the customers who believe in our brand,” Iacono. “When I started the company a few years ago, it was only a dream that Zero Friction would out sell companies like Under Armour, Bridgestone, Cleveland, Wilson, Mizuno and Ping. Now that is a reality, and we are thrilled.”
Zero Friction makes the products golfers want, at prices that are more than fair; and for retailers and sellers, their packaging is attractive and easy to display. It appears there are no limits or restrictions on what might come from Zero Friction in the coming years.
Zero Friction provides high-quality, technologically advanced products for golfers worldwide, including gloves, performance golf tees, balls and accessories. The company established the performance golf tee market, creating the first and only performance tee to ever carry the PGA Tour logo. Zero Friction’s most recent success story is in the golf glove segment.
