Year of Introduction:


Head Material:

Carbon Steel

• Traditional compact blade shape with thin top line
• These irons are forged with soft carbon steel to appeal to those players who enjoy a solid, soft feel with lots of player “feedback”
• The long irons (2-6) incorporate a “modified” cavity back for forgiveness on off center hits
• Short irons (7-PW) are shaped as pure muscle back blades for maximizing performance like trajectory control and distance
• Design goal of these irons is to maintain the Center of Gravity at the precise geometric center of each club for predictable consistency of response
• CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) milled, perfectly flat faces for consistent performance
• Recognizable for the signature PowerBilt lightning bolt and H&B horseshoe
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.
