Surviving a Flat Tire at a High Speed

Written by Murray Priestley

Luckily, flats generally do not occur when you are riding at a high speed. This is probably because at a high speed, you are mostly away fromrepparttar shoulders of road, whererepparttar 144279 majority ofrepparttar 144280 flat-producing snippets are present. Secondly, when your tire passes at a higher speed overrepparttar 144281 pointed objects, it is less likely to be pierced by them as compared to a slow moving tire. These are probably alsorepparttar 144282 reasons you usually do not have a flat tire on descent.

Although it is rare, but tire of your bike may go flat at high speed and it is scary as hell. However, if you are careful and fortune favors you, you can survive it. The key to surviving is that when you flat, you do not have to stop immediately. You might hear a hissing sound whenrepparttar 144283 tire flats. Your rim, when touchingrepparttar 144284 surface ofrepparttar 144285 trail causes this sound. You no longer have a cousin of air to ride on, and when that happens, take a lot of time to impede.

Club Head Style

Did you ever say to yourself, “I don't feel like my swing is that bad, why can't I still break (80,90,100).” Well if you do then CLUB HEAD STYLE might be one of your problems.

Technology has come a long way, so if you are still playing irons that are 5 years old or more you most likely could benefit fromrepparttar 144268 advances in new iron head construction. Here are some ofrepparttar 144269 variables of a head that have an impact on makingrepparttar 144270 game a little easier forrepparttar 144271 average golfer. Click on each title for how each one can help your game. Yes, we know this is a lot of information for justrepparttar 144272 first section but take it step by step and let it sink in a little.


Offest isrepparttar 144273 amountrepparttar 144274 face ofrepparttar 144275 club sits back fromrepparttar 144276 hosel, this aids in helping reduce a slice with your clubs. Generallyrepparttar 144277 better golfer you arerepparttar 144278 less offset you want. However this is not always true. For some reasonrepparttar 144279 better your score getsrepparttar 144280 less you start likingrepparttar 144281 look ofrepparttar 144282 iron head sitting that far back fromrepparttar 144283 hosel. It is a hand control issue more then anything else. When you feel like you arerepparttar 144284 one actually in control ofrepparttar 144285 club you want there to be less and less offset on your new sticks. But for a Mid to High handicap player offset can be a MAJOR factor in making solid contact more often. Andrepparttar 144286 best analogy I can give you is if you were a baseball player would you rather haverepparttar 144287 feeling of hitting a home run or a broken bat single. Solid contact plays a major role in ditance and accuracy control. So if you are constantly having that broken bat single feeling with your irons you might want to consider going to a head with more offset.

Perimeter Weighting

You might have noticedrepparttar 144288 trend inrepparttar 144289 cavity design of new irons lately. Irons in past years had more ofrepparttar 144290 weight behindrepparttar 144291 impact area ofrepparttar 144292 cavity. Today's irons have more ofrepparttar 144293 weight towardsrepparttar 144294 perimeter ofrepparttar 144295 cavity. This is what is called PERIMETER WEIGHTING . If you always hitrepparttar 144296 ball dead center perfect, you would want a small sweet spot and no perimeter weighting so you could put as much physical mass directly behindrepparttar 144297 impact point ofrepparttar 144298 ball. This would make a very long shot. However, if you are off — even just a millimeter — your shot will go astray. By having an iron that is perimeter weighting you are maximizingrepparttar 144299 forgiveness of your irons. So unless you play 4 to 5 times a week you most likely do not hitrepparttar 144300 center ofrepparttar 144301 sweet spot 100% ofrepparttar 144302 time. Therefore you might want to considerrepparttar 144303 amount of perimeter weighting you need on your irons.

Sole Width

Sole width is another factor when considering your next iron set purchase. Put simplyrepparttar 144304 largerrepparttar 144305 mass on your ironsrepparttar 144306 easier it is to be grabbed in a tighter lie out ofrepparttar 144307 rough. A narrower sole is easier out of tight lies and wider soles are easier from plush lies. That is why we tend to recommend a mid to wide soled iron and more blade style wedges. The majority of your wedge shots are going to be from tighter lies or you might have to carry a bunker and still be able to stop it quickly onrepparttar 144308 green. So for your SW and LW you might want to consider looking in our wedge section and choose from a more traditional shaped wedge.

Heel to Toe Length

This iron attribute is more cosmetic then anything else. But it does affect forgiveness. Some players likerepparttar 144309 look of a more compact iron, although a longer heel to toe design has a larger effective hitting area. So if you arerepparttar 144310 kind of golfer that is looking forrepparttar 144311 maximum amount of forgiveness you might also want to consider a longer heel to toe design.

Face Height

Face Height is similar to Heel to Toe length. If you are looking forrepparttar 144312 most forgiving iron you should take face height in consideration.

SHAFT CHOICE Shaft Choice isrepparttar 144313 most important dynamic to improving your present game and equipment. We know that you are hearing this a lot lately, but this is one statement your buddy is right about.

Most recreational golfers think that flex isrepparttar 144314 ONLY thing they need to worry about in regards to being fit properly. You don't know how many times we getrepparttar 144315 guy saying, “Give me x-stiff in my driver, and he hitsrepparttar 144316 ball 175 yds offrepparttar 144317 tee. Orrepparttar 144318 guy that says, “Well my buddy saw me swing and he said I need stiff.” First things first, don't listen torepparttar 144319 buddy who just read a “Golf Digest” and thinks he'srepparttar 144320 golf guru, but still shoots 20 strokes worse then you do. I personally think that custom club builders arerepparttar 144321 most knowledgable inrepparttar 144322 business in regards to being able to properly fit a golfer. That is our job, to properly fit and build irons and woods to a golfers swing. Pro Line shops are there to sell equipment and have most likely never built a club . So we would hope you would call someone in our field before having “Harryrepparttar 144323 Hacker” giving you a backyard fitting.

Ok, enough ofrepparttar 144324 rambling by us lets get down to how we are going to help you become not only a more knowledgable golfer but a better golfer as well.
