The ONOFF AKA Driver – I love this driver. It’s been working unconfined for me and has some features that I believe many golfers can appreciate. First, let me requite you a quick dispersal of the variegated series within the ONOFF lineup. AKA, PLUS, and KURO. AKA is the most forgiving, AKA is the new label for the ONOFF Red series. The key points of the AKA suburbanite are forgiveness, distance and what ONOFF calls “automatic” this is stuff worldly-wise to repeat long straight drives consistently.
I have well-nigh 6 rounds and a few range sessions into this driver, it is paired with a shaft that I believe to be one of the weightier in reducing side spin and producing straight penetrating shots, The Basileus AAA Limited which only 300-500 pieces are made each year. The AAA is made of the very weightier materials. ultra-high rubberband 80t PAN system ultra-high elasticity 50t medium wide zone ultra-high rubberband 70t plain weave cloth, low torque design. It gets crazier! ADOPTING TORE CO., LTD., T1100G, and MX40. The midsection of the shaft features 70t plain weave reticulum while the tip section has Amorphous stat for a smooth feel. No other shaft on the U.S market is made of materials this high-end. What do these materials do? they reduce droop, reduce shaft deformation during the swing, they indulge for a unconfined finger in a lower torque design. It plays increasingly penetrating, and straighter for longer shots. I’ve been playing AAA shafts for 6-7 years now. Click to read on…
For such an easy suburbanite to hit long and straight it sure does squint good during setup. The new AKA is willowy but I found the neutral position to squint well-nigh 0.5* closed. Of all the ONOFF drivers in the current line up the AKA has the highest trajectory but when combined with my AAA 60 Stiff I get a mid-high penetrating trajectory. Below is a graphic that helps explain the 3 keys to loftiness with any driver.
As you can see whilom higher wittiness speeds at the optimal launch and optimal spin equals increasingly distance! The issue now becomes how do you increase wittiness speeds within the rules? In the past, many Japanese brands would lengthen the club to increase swing speed.
This can negatively impact golfers as the longer length makes it harder to square the squatter at impact and harder to hit the sweet spot consistently, meaning decreased performance. Lengthening the club moreover meant using a lighter throne and Japanese brands had to use lightweight heads in order to alimony the swing weight lanugo when towers clubs at longer lengths. It was not uncommon to see heads as light as 185g and typically virtually 190g.
So ONOFF went when to the basics. Newtons Law, Objects of equal size but variegated masses. As an lattermost example, consider a hollow 460cc 150g suburbanite throne and a 460cc suburbanite throne filled with heavy tungsten at 300g. As the heads accelerate, each increases its velocity, and each encounters the same air resistance. While both heads encounter the same air resistance, the heavier throne creates a greater gravity which overcomes the resistance of the air. The heavier throne will slide longer than the lighter head, and its peak velocity will be greater thus creating increasingly gravity at impact.
HEAVIER HEAD=MORE POWER=MORE DISTANCE – BUT… A heavier throne increases swing weight and total club weight making it harder to swing…
ONOFF introduces XCBT to counter this!
Having club with the right swing weight/swing finger to match each player allows the Dynamic throne to square to the wittiness unceasingly for increasingly power and distance. This is achieved with cross-balance technology. ONOFF has willowy weight screws you may install into the grips stump end to support in creating increasingly weigh in the club. This gives you the worthiness to swing a heavier throne with ease.
DYNAMIC HEAD CROSS BALANCE TECHNOLOGY = INCREASED IMPACT EFFICIENCY/SMASH FACTOR
A DYNAMIC (heavier) throne will create increasingly gravity at impact but it is moreover important to get the weightier impact possible. Square and resulting impact midpoint increasingly wittiness speeds and increasingly overall distance. CROSS BALANCE TECHNOLOGY works with the DYNAMIC throne to help match each INDIVIDUAL PLAYERʼs swing to optimize their impact.
There are huge advantages to stuff worldly-wise to fine-tune swing weight instantly for both club fitting and ownership off the shelf.
Club fitters can transpiration the swing weight of the club and total weight hands during the fitting to get the word-for-word spec for optimal performance. Players who buy off the shelf can retread the weights in the throne and grip to suit their swing as they grow with the club.
EXAMPLES OF CROSS-BALANCE TECHNOLOGY USES
Player A lacks power and cannot load the club and create unbearable swing speed considering the swing weight is too upper and/or the club is too heavy – move weight from throne to grip to lower swing weight and/or use lighter weights to bring lanugo total weight.
Player B has a fast tempo and the swing weight is too low and club feels too light in the hands – move weight from grip to throne side and/or use heavier weights to increase swing weight and increase total weight to help add tenancy and stability to the swing.
The ONOFF AKA Suburbanite is moreover very adjustable, you may create a worthier yank bias by swapping out the weight closest to the heel with a heavier screw. You can moreover increase the height and requite it a neutral bias by placing the heaviest weight in the when and lighter weight near the heel.
Then there is the willowy OTCS sleeve hosel for enhanced adjustability
ONOFF does not unroll their robot testing trackman results but I have seen it and can tell you wittiness speeds are higher than the TM stealth unceasingly and that loftiness and dispersion is largest than the stealth w/tensei and the XXIO 12 with the standard shaft. all clubs using R flex.
RECAP KEY FEATURES:
• DYNAMIC HEAD – heavier throne for increasingly power
• CROSS BALANCE TECHNOLOGY – swap weights between head
and grip to fine tune swing weight and club weight to match
each individual = largest impact efficiency
ONOFF TRAJECTORY CONTROL SYSTEM – fine tune trajectory
and bias through weights on throne and willowy shaft sleeve
NEW TRIPLE POWER TRENCH – larger, wider sweet spot, more
