Anthony Webber. Editor-at-Large. iGTN. DV8 Sports, a new company committed to growing participation and enjoyment of golf, today announced a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the launch of its patented, portable golf equipment and bag design
The 35-day campaign seeks funding to fuel DV8 Sports’ first production run and a broader market launch later this year.
DV8 clubs liberate users from heavy, tough-to-transport clubs and bags. Instead of muscling 40-plus pounds of equipment around on a golf trip, DV8 users get a regulation set of clubs and portable backpack style bag, all weighing less than 15 pounds.
DV8 clubs will come in three different shaft flexes: stiff, regular and ladies/senior.
The secret to golf without obstacles is DV8’s patented coupler technology, which allows club heads to be interchanged on one or two custom shafts. The set is carried in a stylish, super durable backpack with club head changes taking less than 3 seconds with no tools or torque wrenches required.
The entire system is roughly one-third the weight and one quarter the size of a traditional set.
The DV8 bag also features a tablet compartment enabling users to film their swing or practice while watching downloaded instructional videos.
