Selecting Your New Formula 11X Driver

Krank Golf has made it easier than ever before for you to distance yourself from your friends by hitting a Formula 11 driver built specifically for your swing. There is no comparison in performance or durability when you compare our forged Krank driver and a 100% precision-machined face to anything else on a golf shop’s rack.

When the pre-COVID official rankings were posted by the World Long Drive (WLD), seven of the top ten long drive professionals in the world were using Krank drivers. Whereas all of these drivers strictly conformed to USGA specifications for the sport, here is the big secret and likely the most misunderstood issue in the game golf today. The spring effect for the face of 99% of the drivers manufactured today is rated for 115 to 120 mph swing speed.

Sitting around the clubhouse, an average golfers might claim to have a swing speed equal that of the best golfers in the world, but the truth is hitting a 300-plus yard drive is a once-in-a-while outcome. Even the top amateurs in the sport have swing speeds that are 10 to 20 mph less than the pros. Unfortunately, when a golfer attempts to speed up their swing to hit that one big shot, the outcome is usually bad.

Don’t Let the USGA or R&A Affect Your Round

At Krank Golf, we built our reputation by designing and manufacturing legal golf clubs for professional golfers and tournament-savvy amateurs that regularly play in sanctioned events. But, playing in competitive golf tournaments is a different game than competing in corporate, local, or charity events; and much different than playing regularly with your group of friends. Competitive tournaments where strict adherence to USGA-conforming equipment is required include PGA Tour events, LPGA Tour events, World Long Drive, USGA Tournaments, U.S. Open Qualifiers, State Opens, and National Amateur Championships.

Here’s the biggest disconnect in the game today. If only one percent of all golfers have a club head speed above 115 mph, why should the other 99% of people who play the game live with such an unfair advantage. Truth is the prescribed spring effect of your driver’s face unfairly penalizes your natural swing and limits the fun you could have playing a round as a recreational golfer. This is where Krank Golf is dedicated to making golf more enjoyable for the masses. We give every golfer the option to choose which club to play for the best results, while having the most fun. Conversely, we have multiple models of Krank handmade drivers registered on the USGA Conforming Equipment list for those who need them.

Precision Engineering for Leveling the Playing Field

Although we hate being the bearer of bad news, it is unrealistic to think that you can carry the ball 250 yards in the air with a 100 mph swing speed by hitting a driver produced for the masses. The good news is, where most club makers rely on CAD designs and automated manufacturing processes to spit-out hundreds of thousands of cheap golf clubs a year, Krank Golf relies on the design experience gained from decades of research and development as well as the hand-crafting skills needed to build custom clubs that match the golfer’s swing. Knowing what you can actually do on course can make your round much more enjoyable.

All you need to do to get started is to visit our driver fitting chart on this website's HOME page and match your true swing speed with your average driving distance. This will help you determine whether you need the Krank Formula 11 Pro driver, Formula 11 LD Long Drive driver, Formula 11 X High-COR driver, or Formula 11 XX High-COR driver. You can use our pop-up chat box to get answers to any questions you might have and don’t forget to look for Krank’s special offers and Coupon Codes for drivers, fairway woods, and hybrids.

Wherever you are playing your next round of golf, let the pros at Krank Golf add the distance and accuracy you need.
