The No Bananas Line: A Brief History The success-story of the No Bananas Line of clubs began on a snowy morning early in 2005, when Mike Stachura, the equipment editor of Golf Digest, called Bob to ask if he would be interested in having the No Bananas Driver tested against other anti-slice and draw-bias drivers at the DigestĘźs laboratories in San Diego. “Do you think your clubs are up to the test?,â€? Stachura asked. Bob replied, “Yes, of courseâ€?; and immediately shipped off a dozen drivers for testing. When the results of those tests were published in the June, 2005 issue of Golf Digest, they set off what would soon become a worldwide media-buzz. The Bob Burns No Bananas Driver had proven best at reducing slices. Golf Digest called it “The Ultimate Fix.â€? Within months, other major publications were requesting the No Bananas Driver for product testing. Fairways and Greens Magazine called it “the real dealâ€?; Luxury Golf and Travel, “A Dynamite Driver.â€? Since 2005, it and other clubs in the No Bananas line have been featured again in Golf Digest (on the “Hot Listâ€?) as well as in Golf Magazine, Golf Illustrated, PGA TourPartners, Avid Golfer, Golf World, Golfing Magazine, Golf Range Magazine, Florida Golf Magazine, and West Coast Golfer. In fairly short order, the buzz occasioned by the No Bananas Driver brought to Bob Burns Golf numerous worldwide accounts, including those with GolfSmith, the worldĘźs largest online golf retailer, the upscale specialty catalogue, Herrington, and TGW Warehouse. In 2006 and early 2007, the company completed its No Bananas line of clubs and accessories—which now includes four sizes of drivers (in seven models), fairway metals, weight-adjustable irons, hybrid clubs,wedges, and a special No Bananas training glove.

The Banana Effect Do you slice your driver, and slice or push your long irons? Do you hit straighter shots with your fairway woods and mid-irons? Do you tend to pull your short irons? If so, you have company, because some 85% of the worldĘźs golfers do likewise. One of the most pervasive problems for the weekend golfer is the inability to release or square the clubface. Most golfers tend to fade, push, or slice the ball off the tee because their clubface is open. In attempting to correct the flight of the ball, the weekend golfer makes two adjustments that logic tells him will send the ball in the proper direction. The trouble is that in golf, such adjustments make the problem worse. First, he attempts to alter his address position by aiming to the left. Second, he tries to swing or steer the ball away

1

from the direction that he commonly hits. Unfortunately, his efforts only exacerbate the problem. The fact is, the vast majority of golfers strike the ball with an open clubface and an outside-in swingpath. To understand why these habits result in slicing the lower-lofted clubs, and yet pulling the more lofted short-irons, you must examine the spin imparted to the ball when it is struck in such a manner. The driver and the long-irons will ordinarily strike the ball somewhere near the vertical-center of the clubface. When they do so on an outside-in swingpath with an open clubface, substantial sidespin is imparted to the ball (clockwise-spin for a right-handed golfer). The more lofted clubs—7, 8, and 9 irons, for example—will ordinarily strike the ball near the bottom of the clubface, thus imparting a backspin that overcomes any tendency to create sidespin; and the ball follows the path of the clubhead, from outside to in. The result is a pulled shot, often sharply pulled, usually on a straight line well left of the target for a right-hander. Perhaps the best way to visualize what the slicerʟs outside-in swing and open clubface do is to illustrate what happens when each club in a set is hit in succession, according to its loft, with the same outside-in swing and open clubface. As you can see, the shot patterns of such an outside-in swing and open clubface produce a fan-effect—the less-lofted clubs exhibiting the greatest slice, and the more lofted clubs the greatest pull. This fanning pattern is due to the spin imparted when each variably-lofted club, from driver to wedge, strikes the ball from outside-in. Initially, it may seem puzzling that the vast majority of golfers have less trouble hitting straight shots with fairway woods and mid-irons than they do with either their drivers and long-irons or with their short-irons; but once you understand the effects created by an outside-in swing, you should get the message. The message is, of course, that in several ways, the No Bananas line of clubs, with heal and toe adjustableweight technology, is designed specifically to address and correct the characteristic flaws in the swings of the vast majority of today’s (and yesterday’s) golfers.

Anti-Slice Technology

Shaft Flexibility

The engineering of the No Bananas line of clubs can completely eliminate the slice factor from your game. The low center of gravity, the built-in closure of the clubface, the flex of the shaft, the lie, and on most models an offset hosel, are designed to help even an inveterate slicer square the face of the club at impact. In addition, the enlarged volume of the clubhead, now achievable with contemporary materials, has allowed us to increase the weighting on its perimeter, thus expanding the area of the sweetspot and improving the performance of the club at the moment of inertia (MOI) on heel and toe mishits.

The flexibility of a clubĘźs shaft affects both distance and accuracy. The shaft bends backward (loads) at the top of the backswing. The weight and motion of the clubhead store energy in the shaft. During the downswing, the shaft bends forward (unloads) as the club moves through the impact zone. If a shaft is too stiff for a golferĘźs swing speed and hand-action, the clubface will tend to be open at impact, causing a slice. If the shaft is too flexible, the head will tend to be closed at impact, causing a hook. The best results occur when the shaft is just firm enough to return to a straight configuration exactly at impact. Then all the stored energy is converted to energy of motion and maximum clubhead-speed.

Kick-Point

NONOFFSET

OFFSET

460cc OFF-SET MODEL

Kick-point refers to the point in the shaft that bends or flexes most during the downswing. A shaftĘźs kick-point alters the launch-angle of the clubface as it moves through impact, thereby affecting the trajectory of the shot. A shaft designed with a higher kick-point will produce a lower trajectory; a lower kick-point will create a higher trajectory. To find the proper kick-point for the shafts of our clubs, you must first determine the proper flex. Better players with higher swing-speeds tend to favor shafts with a high kick-point because they produce lower trajectories, less shot-dispersion, and greater accuracy. Golfers with lower swing-speeds often find that shafts with a low kick-point improve energy-transfer and launch-angles.

460cc DRAW BIAS MODEL

Off-Setting Your Frustrations The more offset a clubhead, the more closed it will tend to be at impact. An offset hosel moves a clubĘźs center of gravity (CG) rearward, away from the centerline of the shaft. On the downswing, the clubs CG tends to fall in sync with the centerline of the shaft, causing the clubhead to catch up with the hosel through impact. An offset hosel design allows the additional split second necessary to effectively rotate the clubhead back to square, thus producing straighter, more accurate shots.

Custom Club-Fitting Custom club-fitting begins with the aid of a swing-computer and a launch-monitor. As a golfer hits balls, these machines instantly record backswing and downswing speeds and paths, weight distribution, clubface-angle at impact, trajectory and distance of shot. This information can be frozen for analysis and/or printed out for future reference, thus enabling golfers to compare different clubs to see which best suit their swings and, coincidentally, to review characteristics of their swings that can be modified or corrected.

Seeking Closure for your Slicing Sorrows If you want to make any significant progress in correcting your slicing drives, you need the notable closed face of the No Bananas driver. Even a clubface but 1-degree more closed can reduce a slice by as much as five yards on a 200-yard shot. The face on the No Bananas 430cc driver is closed by 5 degrees; and the face of the 460cc takes our anti-slice technology even further, to a full 7 degrees, which may then reduce your slice by 35 yards. 3$PQZSJHIU

No Bananas Fairway Metals The No Bananas Fairway Metals are now available with inset, adjustable weight-screws that distribute more weight to the perimeter of the clubhead, thus creating maximum stability at impact and enhancing optimal launch-angles. Golfers who push, fade, or slice the ball, may shift weight-screws with greater or less mass into the toe or heel of the club to correct problematic shot patterns. Custom weighting complements an offset-hosel design to help players square the clubface at impact and to promote a draw-bias for increased distance and improved trajectory. By positioning two adjustable weights (of 6 grams each) in the heavy sole of the offset clubhead, one toward the heel and the other toward the toe, weĘźve accomplished two things that should improve your game: weĘźve lowered the center of gravity (CG) so that it rests below the center-line of the ball at address (thus improving your chances of hitting shots with optimal spin-rates and trajectories), and weĘźve engineered a weighting profile that you may adjust to compensate for your habitual mishits on toe or heel. The weight-screws allow you to custom fit the weighting of the clubhead to your individual swing-speed (or ball-speed), launch-angle, and spin-rate (each of which can be determined with the aid of our Zelocity Ball Launch Monitor). The No Bananas closed-face technology and the progressively offset hosel keep your hands ahead of the clubface on the downswing, thus delaying impact that split-second longer to give the clubface time to rotate back to square and, simultaneously, to enhance the trajectory of shots by increasing the clubĘźs dynamic loft at impact. Thus reducing the tendency to slice, and even promoting a right-to-left shot-pattern. The aim is to reduce, or even eliminate, a sliceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and thus to increase both distance and control. A progressively compact head-design increases playability from a variety of lies. The thin material of the clubface optimizes the coefficient of restitution (COR); and the No Bananas Gold shaft (100% graphite and 50 grams in weight) creates a hotter launch.

The No Bananas Irons If youĘźre like most golfers, you miss the sweetspot on your clubs almost 80% of the time. But donĘźt feel bad, or not too bad; even scratch golfers miss the sweetspot on their clubs as much as 60% of the time. Whether your shots bend to the right or the left, a little or a lot, those shots are â&#x20AC;&#x153;banana balls,â&#x20AC;? or the next thing to them. They each illustrate the â&#x20AC;&#x153;banana ball effectâ&#x20AC;?; and they are products both of your swing and of your golf clubs. Though no club can change the way you swing, the No Bananas Irons can help you change the results of your shots remarkably. Engineered, as they are, to complement other clubs in the No Bananas Line, the No Bananas Irons incorporate the most advanced technology available. They feature progressively offset hoselsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a wide, contoured, cambered soleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a deep, cavity-back designâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a low center of gravityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and a clubhead that incorporates two inset weight-portals for variably weighted screwsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;of aluminum, stainless steel, brass, or dense tungsten. These weight-screws can be swapped or arranged to modify the swing-weight of each iron and to fine-tune its moment of inertia (MOI) or weight-bias. In other words, we can individualize each iron to fit a particular golferĘźs swing- or ball-speed, launch-angle, and spin-rate. Depending on what our Launch Monitor reveals, and depending on which weights are placed whereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;low behind the heel and at an optimal height behind the toeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;individual golfers can improve the consistency of their iron shots, and even their ability to work the ball. The No Bananas Irons might thus be said to extend the boundaries of the sweetspot, and with the less-lofted irons, in particular, to enable you to impart a corrective (or desired) sidespin (â&#x20AC;?gear effectâ&#x20AC;?) to the ballâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;while the progressively offset hosel, decreasingly offset from 3-iron to sand-wedge, provides that extra split-second on the downswing that aids in squaring the clubface at impact. The wide, contoured, cambered soleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the deep cavity-back designâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;further enhance what is the ultimate in a sweetspot. A large, ultra-thin face, a deep undercut channel, and a shorter hosel, allow us to displace more weight to the sole, thus producing a low, deep center of gravity that produces a higher launch-angle, for increased distance and shot-stopping control.

Do you Slice your Irons? Consider the Angle of Their Lies. If the lie-angle on your irons is too flat, you will tend to push, fade, or slice the ball. The toe of the club may contact the ground first, and send the heel out front, thus opening the clubface. Conversely, if the lie-angle of your irons is too upright, the heel may first contact the ground, thus causing the toe to close at impact. A more upright lie-angle on your irons may help reduce your tendency to slice.
