• 15-3-3 Titanium (characterized by its high strength to weight ratio) is cast into a 400 cc volume shell
• Beta Titanium welded face is added onto the Titanium shell
• Beta Ti is a more expensive Titanium notable for its inherent ability to be cast very thinly.
• Thin construction means more feel to the golfer’s hands and more control to the ball flight
• The thin face results in an .830 C.O.R. (coefficient of restitution) which is the highest design threshold within the USGA rules
Originating in 1916 when John Hillerich, the great-grandfather of current CEO and President John Hillerich IV and founder of the Louisville Slugger company, first started making golf clubs from persimmon, the Powerbilt brand produced the finest line of persimmon woods in the golf industry. In 1934, Olin Dutra used the new PowerBilt clubs to capture the U.S. Open by one stroke over Gene Sarazen. Throughout the 1960s, 70s and 80s PowerBilt Citation Persimmon Woods were the standard by which all drivers and fairway woods were judged. During the 1980s alone, PowerBilt clubs won two-dozen events on the PGA Seniors/Champions Tour.
