  • Patent number: 9737770
    Abstract: A golf club head is provided with a body that has an address position with a zero degree bounce portion on the sole and a center sole position with a multi-relief surface of the sole having a negative bounce portion. The negative bounce portion may comprise a negative 0.5 to a negative 4.0 degree surface. In one embodiment, the multi-relief surface may comprise the negative bounce portion and a cutaway portion extending to the back of the sole, which may have a depth of about 0.05 to 0.5 inch from a regular sole surface. In another embodiment, the golf club head includes a weight system to adjust the center of gravity. In one embodiment, the weight system is a tube having a weight at one end that may be inserted into the golf club head to move the center of gravity at least forward and backward within 6 mm and up and down within 6 mm. Preferably, the tube is angled downward toward the face by at least 3 degrees.

  • Patent number: 8456238
    Abstract: A traveling wave amplifier includes a tapered attenuator network for mitigating the effects of DC bias inductor self-resonance. The amplifier includes a gain stages connected in a ladder network for successively amplifying a forward traveling wave caused by an input signal to produce an output signal. A back termination is coupled to the gain stages to absorb backwards traveling waves created by reflections from the gain stages and an output of the amplifier. An inductive DC bias circuit is coupled to the gain stages near the back termination for providing DC bias to the gain stages. A tapered multi-section frequency selective attenuator network is connected between the DC bias circuit and a first one of the gain stages for reducing the effect of self-resonance of the inductive DC bias circuit on the output signal.

  • Patent number: 8353787
    Abstract: A metal wood golf club head adapted for attachment to a shaft, with a body comprising of a first body portion and a second body portion, each portion constructed of a different density material. Combining a high density material in the first body portion with a low density material in the second body portion, creates an ultra-low center of gravity relative to the geometric face center, resulting in higher launch angles and spin rate ratios. Thickening the lower area of the front face lowers the center of gravity and upwardly shifts the coefficient of restitution to the geometric center of the face.
