GRIP 2007 Fairway Wood!

Here are the first photos of the production-ready GRIP Fairway wood. I should have one ready to assemble when I return from the PGA show. Assuming everything is as it should be when we test it we will have them in mid-late March. It looks cool and it should be very easy to hit and extremely forgiving.
They will available in #3,5,7 Right Hand Only Men's and Women's.

New GRIP Golf Affiliate Program

We are launching the GRIP affiliate program later this week. For those that are unfamiliar with affiliate programs they are, in essence, revenue sharing programs between you and a company (in this case GRIP) that sells a product or service. We reward you with commission payments for sales on our site when you send us customers to http://www.gogrip.com/ from your web site or Blog. We have put together an excellent FAQ with all of the details at: https://www.gogrip.com/t-affiliate_faq.aspx

Our affiliate program is managed by Commission Junction. Their technology will track GRIP sales made through affiliates and they will also electronically distribute the commission payments. We chose Commission Junction because is the make it simple for our affiliates to work with us and they are the industry leader for managing affiliate programs. They have excellent information on their web site http://www.cj.com/ about affiliate programs and how it all works.

The GRIP affiliate program will officially start taking applications starting on Jan 19, 2007. We have an aggressive commission plan that pays commissions from 10-30% on a monthly basis. We will gladly add to you our email launch list for the affiliate program.

PGA Show

We will be at the PGA show in Orlando from Jan 24-28 2007. Surprisingly, we will not have a booth. Since our full offering including irons, driver, and fairway woods will not be available until the spring, we decided that we would be jumping the gun a bit by going to the show. The buyers at the show expect you to have the product available for shipment right away. Putters, wedges, and Hybrids just aren't enough. Even if they are the best hybrids, putters and fairway woods available!In 2008 GRIP will be at the show in full force. We will spending our time looking at new products, networking, selecting new products for our www.savvygolfer.com women's golf site, selecting new products for the new GRIP outlet store opening at the East Coast Golf Academy http://www.ecoastgolf.com/index.htm in Northborough, MA.

The outlet store is our first brick and mortar effort for GRIP. We will offer GRIP Golf Equipment (of course!), all of the products from The Savvy Golfer, and a huge selection of value priced sets for men, women, and children from our partners at Linksman Golf. We are really looking forward to opening the store. We move in February 1 and I expect to be up and running by Feb 19.

I will post photos and news from the show daily. For anyone attending, if you want to met with us or introduce yourself email sales@gogrip.com. We are also helping out our friends at Wildcard Golf in their booth at the show.

New Products!

We have some fantastic new products launching this spring. I actually received the final driver sample a couple of weeks ago. I will post a photo this weekend. We developed a really cool 460cc Beta Titanium driver with two fixed weight ports and a lot of great bells and whistles. I am bringing it to the PGA show with me in a couple of weeks.

Additionally, we have a series of fairway woods launching 3,5,7 woods and some very sweet Wide Sole Irons. I believe we decided to move forward without the zebra stripes you see in the picture.
We are very excited about our 2007 products. We had a great year in 2006 but it is difficult to compete as a three product golf company (wedges, hybrids, putters). We are really looking forward to this spring when we launch our full product line. We expect to have everything available in March.
