In the words of designer, Mike Tait: "Your new DB Plus driver head is a combination of two of our most popular and industry respected clubheads. The 455 Deep Bore, the winningest component clubhead in the history of golf and amazingly popular Indio clubhead, the best feeling, arguably most accurate clubhead in the current SMT stable of international award winning clubheads. We have taken these two outstanding products, combined the things that made each of them great and worked in a couple of functional design features to increase playability and make the DB Plus clubhead much more MOI friendly. It took us over a year to achieve these feats but we are very proud of the results achieved. At 440's the DB Plus fills a void in the SMT line like no other. Hiding the weight and the bulk of the hosel piece inside the clubhead has allowed us to move the center of gravity to a much more playable position in this particular head. A mildly classic pear shape with deeper heel and backskirt design hides the size of this head nicely. We have taken the patented double forged crown design, first brought to market on the very popular Indio clubhead, and modified it slightly on the DB Plus to work in harmony with its unique sole design to produce a large clubhead that still feels very solid yet plays absolutely true to loft, something that is almost always lost in today's larger designs. The double forged crosshatch section of the thin titanium crown has been reserved for the front half of the crown allowing the heavier crown section to encircle it, bringing the weight further from the striking area of the clubface thusly increasing the moment of inertia of the design. Turning this titanium beauty over, you will see just the opposite as you have on the crown. The heavier part of the sole is actually closer to the face and the rear of the rounded sole sweeps rapidly up and away into the backskirt area for stability, trajectory, energry transfer, and optimum spin profile of your golf ball. We finished it up with a rich black metalflake crown to blend seamlessly with the new 3390 Series fairway woods and added a bright white accent for a bit of excitement. Oh yes, and the graphics are “upside down" for a reason. When you start hitting your new DB plus driver, you will undoubtedly be “posing a bit as you watch the ball fly down the fairway, and in case there are any cameras around during your follow through, we wanted to make sure that they could read the name of the club easily enough DB Plus! The SMT value added twist? We knew we had something quite special here but found that we were still looking for more. We wanted to make this spectacular clubhead unique in two more ways, and since SMT Golf has become the industry leader in personalizing golf grips with player's names, company names and golf club logos, the last feature to be added to this unique driver head was purely a cosmetic one, the guitar pick shaped aluminum medallion in the toe of each driver head is something that we can custom laser engrave to your needs. Your name, nickname, initials, country club logo, company name or golf outing can be beautifully preserved right on your new driver. But of course, that wasn't enough, as we are aware that for so many golfers, the game of golf is really about fun and the coordinating of clubhead colors to golf shafts, clothing, and even to personal preferences, each SMT DB Plus clubhead is shipped with a package of several different color anodized aluminum medallions for you to apply to match or color coordinate with your customer's golf shafts, player preferences, or to just give a splash of color to personalize your DB Plus driver in your own special way. Each Beta Titanium DB Plus clubhead comes to you complete with the following: Magnetic headcover, SMT matching logo ferrule, SMT logo wrap grip, package of aluminum medallions in different colors, Standard SMT 100% Lifetime Warranty. Right handed lofts to be available: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 degree Another quote from Mike Tait, "Philis Metti - New Zealand's two time long drive champion and holder of the New Zealand women's long drive record with the SMT Encore, also the 2006 RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion using the SMT 455 Deep Bore will be using the brand new SMT DB Plus driver head in 8 degrees to recapture her World Championship title in Mesquite Nevada October 22nd, 2008 Philis was all set to take on the best in the world with her bag full of SMT Encore and SMT 455's, but received the new DB Plus to try out immediately upon its approval for play by the USGA and found "significant improvement" in distance, spin profile and trajectory. This news is absolutely amazing on several levels..... Imagine using a brand new head, not even on the market, over the head that you just won the national title with and also set a driving distance record in your own country.... and also if she wins, it will be the fastest to market, to world champion status of any clubhead in the history of golf. This news is absolutely huge!"
