Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is the best driver?

    Answer: High Heat is the best driver for you because it is designed solely to meet the performance needs and swing speeds of amateurs, not the requirements of PGA Tour pros whose much higher swing speeds average 113 mph, and who hit on or very near the center of the face with great frequency. For this reason, Heat’s Center of Gravity (CG) is 25% deeper (further back from the face) and 18% lower than the average CG location of the major brands TaylorMade SLDR; Titleist 915D2; Ping G30, Callaway Big Bertha Alpha, and Nike Covert 2.0. As a result, High Heat is longer, straighter and more forgiving which was shown in test results conducted at the world’s most prominent independent golf equipment testing Golf Laboratories, which is used by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine and several major brands. Golfers who have tried High Heat rave about its superior performance.

  2. What is the longest driver?

    Answer: High Heat is longer, straighter and more forgiving than the major brands TaylorMade SLDR; Titleist 915D2; Ping G30, Callaway Big Bertha Alpha, and Nike Covert 2.0 which was shown in test results conducted at the world’s most prominent independent golf equipment testing Golf Laboratories.

  3. What makes High Heat longer than major brands for amateur golfers?

    Answer: Dean Knuth’s Optimal GC Game Changer and Fire Zone Face Technologies. They include Dean’s patented and patent-pending inventions and designs, which make High Heat’s Center of Gravity (CG) 25% deeper (further back from the face) and 18% lower than average CG location for the major brands TaylorMade SLDR; Titleist 915D2; Ping G30, Callaway Big Bertha Alpha, and Nike Covert 2.0. In addition, High Heat distinct 7 zones of variable face thickness increases the spring-like effect across the face for added distance, and its “parabolic” shape provides a superior aerodynamic feature that improves the way the air flows around the clubhead for increased ball speed.

  4. Which driver has the “hottest face?”

    Answer: High Heat has the “hottest face” of any driver because of its CG Game Changer and Fire Zone Face Technologies. See Answer to Question 3. One of the most consistent comments received from player testing was how fast the golf ball jumps or explodes off the face.

  5. Which driver has the most forgiveness?

    Answer: High Heat is more forgiving than the major brands TaylorMade SLDR; Titleist 915D2; Ping G30, Callaway Big Bertha Alpha, and Nike Covert 2.0 which was shown in test results conducted at the world’s most prominent independent golf equipment testing Golf Laboratories High Heat is more forgiving because of its unique face has 7 distinct zones of variable thickness, including two patented parabolic lobes that increase the spring-like effect across the face, and the fact that its MOI is 5,389 which is higher than all of the major brands and is also 26% higher than their average MOI.

  6. What driver is the most accurate or produces the “tightest dispersion”?

    Answer: High Heat. As a result of Knuth Golf’s unique and patent pending 7-zone variable thickness face and overall unique pear shaped design, test results at Golf Laboratories showed that High Heat is more accurate (producing less “dispersion” from the center line) on center and off-center hits compared to the major brands’ average accuracy.

  7. What driver has the highest Moment of Inertia (“MOI”)?

    Answer: High Heat. Its MOI is 5,389 and is higher than the major brands TaylorMade SLDR, Titleist 915D2, Ping G30, Calloway Big Bertha Alpha, and Nike Covert 2.0. High Heat’s MOI is also 26% higher than the major brands average MOI.

  8. What has been the feedback on High Heat?

    Answer: Golf writers and amateurs have given rave reviews for High Heat because it was designed for amateur golfers, not Tour pros--and it delivers! They consistently say that they have never hit a driver that is as long or straight as High Heat even when they do not hit near the center of the face, that it is so easy to hit the ball, and that it has a great feel. And the lower handicap golfers also say they love the way that they can work the ball with High Heat.

  9. What if my swing speed is close to 113 mph? Will High Heat still improve my driving performance?

    Answer: Most likely High Heat will improve your results, since there are very few amateurs who have that swing speed on a consistent basis like the professionals. Allow for average swings as well as perfect ones—by using High Heat--and you will achieve longer drives. In addition, High Heat will benefit amateurs with this swing speed because it is more accurate.

  10. Do you plan to offer an adjustable driver in the future?

    Answer: No. As Dean as proven, a much deeper and lower CG compared to the major brands’ average CG location benefits amateur golfers swing speeds. The added “adjustability” weight near the hosel area moves the CG in the wrong direction for amateurs.

  11. Does High Heat conform to the USGA Rules of Golf?

    Answer: Yes.

  13. Why did your company choose cobalt blue color for its driver head?

    Answer: Dean wanted his High Heat driver to be readily distinguishable from other drivers. He wanted a different color than any brand and “cobalt blue” was the perfect choice because it suggests the color of a “high heat” flame at its hottest point.

  14. How does Knuth Golf’s money-back guarantee work?

    Answer: Knuth Golf requires that you send us an e-mail requesting a refund within 30 days of the receipt of the driver, and simply state the reason for the request.

  17. Why do they call Dean the “Pope of Slope?”

    Answer: Prior to joining the USGA as the Director of Handicap, Dean conceived of the idea of rating golf courses based on 14 obstacle and distance factors rather than using only distance, the basis of the USGA’s handicap system at the time. Later, he revised his idea which resulted in the USGA’s current Course Rating System. Then Dean conceived and developed his idea of assigning different handicaps to golfers at each course depending on its comparable level of difficulty for their home course which was used to determine their handicap. Thus was born the USGA’s Slope Rating System, which makes far more equitable course handicaps when golfers play at different places. It solved the “my handicap won’t travel” problem. When Dean introduced the Slope System in Argentina he was introduced as “Popa Du Slopa (Father of Slope).” Then Jay Mottola, Executive Director of the Metropolitan (NY) Golf Association introduced Dean as the “Pope of Slope” when he came to New York to explain the Slope System, which is how he’s been known ever since and why he named his handicap-information website, www.popeofslope.com.
