So one thing of the best things about the PGA show is coming across new companies. Zero Friction reached out to us on twitter so we had to stop by and check them out. In full disclosure we had never heard of Zero Friction until the PGA Show.
We reviewed the ZFT Maxx tees. You can buy the ZFT Maxx tees either alone or in a package with two Zero Friction balls. While, there really isn’t a lot to say about tees I can tell you they were durable and strong. We both played a whole round without the tee breaking.
So the glove was quite possibly one of the most interesting items we have reviewed in awhile. All Zero Friction gloves are mostly one size fits all. The glove is one that utilizes compression fit technology. So the glove grows to fit your hand. So where the hand comes in contact with the club the glove has 100% authentic cabretta leather and on the areas of the hand that do not contact the club the glove is made of lycra.
So, this glove is unlike any glove we have ever tried. It did take some getting used to but once you got used to the feel of the glove the added features of this design really started to show through. We started to notice that the glove had some more breathability that a traditional all leather glove did not offer. Additionally, the lycra material while stretchy also doesn’t stay stretched. We ran this glove through the ringer at the lab trading it between guy with different hand sizes and taking a lot of swings and the glove consistently fit each guy without much slipping.
Zero Friction has gone the way of many companies out on the market by offering their gloves in many colors. We are excited to see how this glove preforms in the summer heat.
These gloves clock in at $18 bucks a piece. This seems to be the going rate for gloves now a day. We can promise you these gloves are unlike any you have seen before.
So we decided to try something new with this review and give some balls away to our followers to review as well. The ZF Spectra Golf Balls are a 2 piece ball that range in colors from classic white to pink/red and everything in between. Zero Friction has embraced the matte finished balls that we are seeing more and more over across the market.
To summarize our winners on twitter, both enjoyed the ball. Felt like they didn’t lose ant distance and had control around the green. One of our followers was a little turned off by the red color ball but thought the yellow was great and lastly the ball had a muted sound off the tee.
We agree, all and all a pretty good ball for a 2 piece golf ball. We felt like the distance was pretty true off the tee and we actually liked the sound on impact. See the slowmo video below.
As for the feel around the green, the balls had amount of spin and feel you expect in a 2 piece ball.
At $20 bucks a dozen, we were impressed with the quality and feel of the balls at that price point. These balls compete neck and neck with other balls at this price point.
It seems like there are new accessory companies hitting the market every week, it is almost hard to keep track. We were really excited when Zero Friction reached out and were pleasantly surprised with how each item preformed. If you are looking to make a change or try something new, Zero Friction is a great company to test out.
