Persimmon - the legend. This hard, resilient American timber has long been recognised as the most perfect golf club head material - in fact nothing gets near it for the essentials of distance, accuracy and feel.
Persimmon is a tree of the ebony family, native to Central and Eastern United States, which produces a hard wood with a pronounced grain pattern. Traditionally sourced for only the finest golf clubs, persimmon cushions little at impact, allowing maximum energy transference to the ball.
For the first time, young players discover the unique benefits
of playing persimmon whilst established golfers are amazed by the
performance and playability when aligned with the modern golf shaft.
So where is the drawback? - simply that persimmon is expensive to
source and requires skill to manufacture, in direct contrast to the
mass-produced factory product of the major brands.
But there is a choice. Since 2003, Persimmon Golf has led the
persimmon revival in Europe, proving to thousands of golfers that our
clubs have the power to revolutionise the performance, and above all
enjoyment of their game.
