The big hitters in the golf world generate club head speed with what looks like little effort. Same with the baseball guys with their silky smooth stroke.

We have Riz and his death sticks.

To me it looked like you were putting more effort into the HF hammer than the others.

lack of leverage. The HF hammer is very short in relationship to the weight. I also was scared to get aggressive with the set, cuz the head is very small in diameter. It has a very fresh waffle face on it.

Well that may be speaking to the notion that the Titanium hammer is a less fatigue creating stick to swing.

The shorter handle on the heavy hammer is easier to change direction over a longer handle but the head speed suffers.

The question at hand is if the extra length of handle on the new school hammer generates more energy at impact with less stress on those fleshy body parts than the steel mallet.

When I watch you in that piece of cinematic art, you appear to be quite relaxed swinging the titanium club. Just sayin...

That's because I drove a couple pounds of nails with the titanium hammer to get the feel of it and to dial in swing speed. Let's not forget how comfortable I got with a little practice with the Craftsman hammer a couple short years ago...

Yeah, but if we did an air nailer contest I'd hang with the boys

Yep. That's the power of Hollywood. Guy bangs in 3 nails and walks away with a nailing contest title.

I sense a bit of resentment in there somewhere

True, the production crew was part of the win but a win it was

I did submit this one first that had a few more nails in it

The tag may say XL, fit is XM or SL.
