  • Patent number: 10556157
    Abstract: A golf club head is described having a club head portion, a shaft portion connected to the club head portion, and a grip portion connected to the shaft portion. The club head portion has a heel portion, a sole portion, a toe portion, a crown portion, a hosel portion, and a striking face. The striking face has a center face roll contour, a toe side roll contour, a heel side roll contour, a center face bulge contour, a crown side bulge contour, and a sole side bulge contour. The toe side roll contour is more lofted than the center face roll contour. The heel side roll contour is less lofted than the center face roll contour. The crown side bulge contour is more open than the center face bulge contour, and the sole side bulge contour is more closed than the center face bulge contour.

  • Patent number: 10537773
    Abstract: A golf club head comprises a body having a face, a crown and a sole together defining an interior cavity. The body having a channel located on the sole and extending generally from a heel end of the body to a toe end of the body. A weight member movably positioned within the channel such that a position of the weight member within the channel is able to be adjusted, thereby adjusting a location of a center of gravity of the body. Additionally, adjustment of the weight member provides a maximum x-axis adjustment range of the position of the center of gravity (Max ?CGx) that is greater than 2 mm and a maximum z-axis adjustment range of the center of gravity (Max ?CGz) that is less than 2 mm.

  • Patent number: 8590527
    Abstract: A solar collector system includes a plurality of frames. Each frame includes at least a pair of spaced apart side members, a plurality of cross members connected to the side members, the cross members pivotally moveable from a shipping configuration to a deployed configuration wherein in the deployed configuration, each cross member is positioned relative to an adjacent cross member with a predetermined angle, and a plurality of stantions extending from the frames. The solar collector system further includes a plurality of heliostats, each heliostat mounted to one of the stantions, and a plurality of ballasts coupled to the frames, each ballast having a lower surface contacting the ground without substantially penetrating the ground to maintain a position of the frames on the ground.

  • Patent number: 6642421
    Abstract: An embodiment of the present invention is a method for isolating conducting polymer precursors by contacting a non-basic heterocyclic nitrogen containing hydrocarbon stream having a boiling point of from 232° C. (450° F.) to 566° C. (1050° F.) with an effective amount of a treating agent selected from the group consisting of alkylene and polyalkylene glycols and glycol ethers and mixtures thereof, having a molecular weight of less than 1000 and 1200, respectively, at conditions effective to maintain the reactants in a liquid phase to produce a first stream enriched in non-basic heterocyclic nitrogen containing hydrocarbon compounds and a second treated stream having a decreased non-basic heterocyclic nitrogen content. Optionally, an effective amount of a mineral acid may be added to the treating agent to enhance the process.
