SirShanksAlot Comments: Our friend over had golf-patents.com got these next two patents right when he labeled these next few patents “would it work”. Both these patents feature movable parts. The first a steel ball bearing that sits inside the club cavity that will impact the back of the clubface the moment of impact. My opinion? Have you ever heard a rattle in your shaft from loose epoxy glue? This would be much worse.
The next patent features a tube of liquid (mercury apparently) that will pool on the toe or heel of the club on off-center hits.
While both these patents are cool, I think they suffer from the same flaw. In the split-second (technically about 0.0005 of a second) during impact, the steel ball will still be mid-air in the clubhead, and the mercury fluid will have moved such a minuscule amount that it would make absolutely no difference. I’m not even going to talk about centrifugal forces… back to the drawing board.
