Golf Club Treatment Published Articles
- Austin Powers , your clubs are ready. A company called COLDfire is touting
a radical treatment for your clubs as the ticket to longer, straighter, better
feeling shots. In its "Thermal Cycling" process, clubs are placed for
several hours in a chamber filled with liquid nitrogen at nearly 300 degrees
below zero and then they are subjected to 340 degree of heat. The temperature
extremes purportedly improves the metals mettle, translation into more energy
for more distance and less club head twisting for straighter shots...according
to the company, it last for the life of the club.
- Sounds like it's from a 'sci-fi' novel...but the pros are having it done
so there must be something to it. Word has it that Aaron B. had his clubs
treated before the Australian open. Likewise, Stephen Allen and Robert Allenby.
What is it? COLDfire Thermal Cycling. The way it works is the club head is
exposed to extreme temperatures, causing the metallurgical characteristics to
change dramatically. This change reduces the loss of energy through vibration in
the club head at impact....increasing both distance and accuracy. Clubs treated
are said to have more solid feel...the increase in distance is about 7% a club.
Many companies are using the COLDfire process including, NASA, NAPA auto,
Swisher, BHP, Worthington Cylinders, US Mint, etc. A treated disposable razor
lasted seven months before the plastic strip wore out. The blade was still
TREATMENT ADDS LENGTH TO YOUR CLUBS
When someone claims they can make
your clubs hit the ball 10 percent farther and
significantly straighter, you don't pay much attention. But when that same
person also has hundreds of testimonials, including pro golfers, you have to
listen. Frank Masyada
owns Coldfire, a company that uses a patented, award
winning thermal molecular process to enhance metals. He treats tools for such
companies as Reynolds Aluminum, GE, Pratt & Whitney, DuPont, and the U.S.
Mint, to name a few. Research has proven that metals treated to the deep
cryogenics Masyada developed record increased efficiency and wear resistance.
Back in 1982, Masyada, known as "Mr. Freeze" for his process, which molecularly
alters metals by subjecting them to extreme cold (less than -350 degrees F), was
treating the brakes for the Porsche and BMW racing teams, not to mention crank
shafts, surgical instruments, drill bits, computer mother boards, fishing hooks
and metal optics used in missile guidance systems. When he moved to Florida, he
realized there weren't as many tools to treat, "but lots of golf
clubs."Does it work?
Masyada doesn't even try to sell you. He mentions he rented time on Iron Byron,
the same golf equipment testing machine used by the USGA and all major
manufacturers, and using identical clubs, the treated ones averaged 17-20 yards
farther on drivers and 10 percent straighter on off-centered hits. It works on
all metals and yes, it conforms to all current USGA rules of golf."

GOLF PRODIGY SHARES HIS No. 1 SECRET
Sydney Newspaper Article
With their graphite-shafted, jumbo-sized metal
drivers, 80-degree wedges and their swing gurus at their elbows, you might have
thought that there was nothing more modern-day golfers could do to gain an
advantage over a golf course.
However, when 18-year-old Victorian amateur Aaron
Baddeley stepped onto the tee to start his challenge for the Holden Australian
Open at Royal Sydney yesterday, few people realised that the driver in his hands
was more than just another metallic grey monster.
It looks like any other modern driver, but it’s
what you can’t see that holds the secret; a secret he now shares with none
other than world No. 1, Tiger Woods.
Baddeley’s club has been treated with what is
literally space-aged technology.
Given that it is claimed it could bring another
15-20 metres to his drives, it’s enough to frighten the life out of golf club
administrators whose courses are being rendered more obsolete every year by
Before he came to Royal Sydney, Baddeley, following
Wood’s lead, put his driver through the revolutionary “Coldfire” process.
This process alters the molecular structure of the
metal and strengthens it to the point that it is claimed you can get 15-20m
extra distance on well-struck shots, while off-centre shot will go straighter.
According to James Harrison, chief executive of the
Melbourne-based Coldfire Australasia, the idea originated at Cape Canaveral,
where NASA scientists working on strengthening the metal in their rockets
decided to see how it might work on their clubs.
Although there is always a good deal of skepticism about such claims, Baddeley reckoned it was worthwhile especially when he
learned that Woods had “Coldfired” his clubs, from driver through to putter.
“I can’t say for sure yet that it brings the
extra distance, but so far I think it helps straighten up the off-centre
shots,” Baddeley said yesterday, after a superb five-under 67 put him firmly
into Open contention, three strokes behind first-round leader Paul Gow.Whatever merit there is in the claims, Baddeley’s
driver yesterday was simply smoking.
On the par-five 515m seventh hole, he smashed it
almost 300m, allowing him to get home easily in two to set up the fifth of the
seven birdies he logged in the first nine holes.
Australia has a magnificent pedigree in amateur golf,
but if ever there was one who stood out in his formative years, it is this
talented young man from the outer Melbourne suburb of Croydon.
one wants to over-burden him, especially after golfing icon Gary Player said
publicly earlier that Baddeley was as good, if not better, than Jack Nicklaus at
the same age.
But as much as people agree he should be allowed to
develop quietly, he keeps raising the excitement and expectation levels every
time he steps out in a major event.
Indeed, it was impossible to ignore him yesterday
morning, as he became the first name to be posted on the leader board.
He did it by compiling and outward half of 29, a
breathtaking burst of scoring, even allowing for the fact that the course was
ripe for the picking.
He looked very much at home in the environment of a
major golf tournament. He may have
been sitting in an exam room only three weeks ago completing his VCE, but his
age belies his innate control and self-assurance.
He already walks and talks as if he belongs out
there, trading shots with Greg Norman, Craig Parry and Stuart Appleby.
But there is not a hint of arrogance or teenage
swagger about him. He is an
articulate, well-mannered, young man who simply knows where he is going in life.
Yesterday there was not the slightest change in his
emotional barometer, as might have been the case with any other young amateur
making such an early charge before coming back to earth.
Whether he was in tearaway form on the front nine, or
being reeled in after a couple of errant shots on the back nine, he presented
the same calm, confident face.
Indeed, he and his caddie and friend, Dion Kipping,
were so relaxed that they started to sing a few tunes to each other, the
favourite being one by Australian band Taxiride.
It’s something they have been doing for some time,
most recently during the Victorian PGA at Albert Park last month.
“We started slowly and he (Kipping) said ‘You
know what we aren’t doing? We aren’t singing’.
So we started singing and went birdie-birdie,” he said.
But for now he plans to stick to his day job.
“I have been told by Dale Lynch (his coach) that I
play off a handicap of 45 when it comes to singing,” he said.
While it’s clearly a voice you’d prefer to kill
rather than kill for, he does play sweet music with a golf club in his hand.
Listen for the tune Sunday.
It could be something special.
ColdFire Thermal Cycling - Why Treat Golf
What's the difference?
This process, developed over a
ten year period, is a tightly controlled procedure that subjects golf clubs to
extreme temperature variables over a controlled period of time. Thermal Cycling
is an incredible scientific breakthrough that transforms your current golf clubs
into state-of- the art, molecularly enhanced, powerhouse equipment. Experience
the most efficient distance drivers you've ever used.
How does it improve my clubs?
When the metal of
the golf club is exposed to the process of extreme temperatures, the
metallurgical characteristics change dramatically.Molecules fuse
together, eliminating vibration and loss of energy, resulting in the smoothness
of contact as the lost energy translates into extra distance.
Will it improve my game?
will experience improved accuracy, greater distance and a more solid feel.
How does it make the ball go straighter and
At the precise millisecond the
club head comes in contact with the ball, a tremendous amount of energy is
released. The major portion of the energy transfers into the ball as flight and
the remaining energy is transferred into the club head and up the shaft as
Thermal Cycling eliminates
vibrations, therefore allowing lost energy to be transmitted back into the ball.
Drives are significantly increased as documented by dynamic testing. Less
vibration means not only more solid contact but less twisting and torque of the
club head which translates into straighter flight, a softer feel and importantly
the sound that goes with a well struck shot
