Title (EN) GOLF CLUB HEAD OR OTHER BALL STRIKING DEVICE HAVING FACE INSERT
(FR) TÊTE DE CLUB DE GOLF OU AUTRE DISPOSITIF DE FRAPPE DE BALLE AYANT UN INSERT DE FACE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A ball striking device (100), such as a golf club, includes a head (102) with a face (112) having an outer surface configured for striking a ball, a body (108) connected to the face, and an insert (140) connected to the face and forming a portion of the outer surface. The density and/or friction properties of the insert may be different from those of adjacent portions of the face. Depending on the size, shape, and location of the insert, the moment of inertia of the head may change, the center of gravity of the face may shift, and/or the degree and direction of spin on the ball resulting from impacts may change.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un dispositif de frappe de balle (100), tel qu'un club de golf, lequel dispositif comprend une tête (102) avec une face (112) ayant une surface externe configurée pour frapper une balle, un corps (108) relié à la face, et un insert (140) relié à la face et constituant une partie de la surface externe. Les propriétés de densité et/ou de frottement de l'insert peuvent être différentes de celles de parties adjacentes de la face. En fonction de la taille, de la forme et de l'emplacement de l'insert, le moment d'inertie de la tête peut changer, le centre de gravité de la face peut être décalé et/ou le degré et la direction de tournoiement sur la balle résultant d'impacts peuvent changer.
