A golf tee won't help you hit a consistent baby fade or break 80 for the first time, but Champ is hoping its new Zarma FLYtee PRO tee, which was unveiled at the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show, will help golfers cut down on the number they use in a round — and maybe gain a couple extra yards off the tee in the process.
According to Champ, the Zarma FLYtee PRO's six-pronged head and shallow cup reduces friction, promoting increased distance and accuracy off the tee. The company also made some significant upgrades to the prongs after receiving feedback on the 2012 model from players.
"We had some people say that the tips on the FLYtee curled in after a certain amount of play," said Jessica Georgenes, Champ's Marketing Manager and Tour Coordinator, "so we decided to go back in with the new FLYtee PRO and add a soft, shock-absorbing head. It makes the tips really durable."
In an effort to increase the durability of the tee, Champ also infused it with Kevlar, making it nearly indestructible.
The Zarma FLYtee PRO is available in a 2 ¾-inch and 3 1/4-inch option and comes four to a pack. It currently retails for $5.99.
