From time to time we are lucky enough to get a hold of golf products that are not yet available on the market. Sort of a pre-screening of the product before it hits the shelf for sale to the public
This time it was a newly designed golf tee, and one that just got approved and is a legal tee to use when playing.
The name of this new product is the “Flexie-T”
It’s sort of a combination of a rubber tee like from any driving range and a hard plastic spike to push in the ground.
It’s a pretty good idea but, but how well does it work ?
To be quite honest we were very stand-offish about this product when we first saw it. Some of us thought it would be great and others thought it would be horrible. At first glance you think “Oh that won’t work well, it’s too big, it’s too stiff”.
Well everyone here at Ty Daniel’s Golf that said negative things about it, ate their words !
Completely threw us a curve-ball, the tee was quite impressive. Regardless of the look and flash-backs it will give you of the driving range, the Flexie T will be an asset in your bag.
As you know we are always very tough on our reviews and ratings and we pride ourselves on being brutally honest. Sometimes that doesn’t go over too well with golf courses, and golf product manufacturers, but “Oh well” that’s what we do.
As for the positives of the Flexie-T, we found that:
- It was basically the perfect height for todays big driver heads. (PING G2, Cleveland Launcher, and Callaway Big Bertha, to name a few)
- It flexes just like it’s names claims to.
- You can reuse it and basically never have to worry about buying more tees.
The negative aspects of the Flexie T that we found were:
The look, a lot of people had a hard time just getting past their prejudgement’s of it.
It is a starts out a little stiff but just flexing the tip a few times while waiting to tee off seemed to help soften it up, for better flexibility.
If you hit low on the ball or have a smaller driver head you might find yourself looking for your Flexie T after you tee off.
Since your club head will sometimes grab the tee, pull it out of the ground and send it flying. But that will happen with just about any tee, the difference is the Flexie-T is reusable, so you better go and find it.
We also found that these tees can break just like any other tee, but they last a lot longer than the standard wooden tee.
Overall we liked this product and were quite surprised that we did.
If you like the idea of reusable tees, like the Zero Friction Tee, or the Brush-Tees, then you will probably like this one too.
