Looking to learn what you need to know about the latest developments and new products from Sacks Parente Golf? These handy thumbnails will keep you up to date on the company's new releases across all equipment  catetgories.

New: Sacks Parente expands into separate golf shaft division. The company that built its putter brand on an ultra-low balance point shaft and its ultralight carbon fiber construction announced that it is now expanding to include a separate division devoted to shaft development. The division will be known as Newton, and its first product will be the Newton Motion, a driver shaft offered in six flexes. Designated by a system of "dots" rather than traditional flex designations, the shaft options cover a range of swing speeds from less than 75 miles per hour to more than 115 miles per hour. According to Aki Yorihiro, the company's chief technology officer, “Countless golfers grapple with a common predicament – a rushed transition at the pinnacle of their swing that triggers an alarming signal in their minds, leaving them uneasy about their swing. With the combination of our four technologies, we replace those signals with a clear message to the brain: ‘Your swing is in harmony – trust the shaft.’ The result? Achieving straighter and longer drives effortlessly.” $250.

NEW: Series 91 "The Duke" putter. In honor of Ken Duke's recent win at the Shaw Charity Classic on the PGA Tour Champions, the company is releasing a putter inspired by Duke's model. It features the same slight half-mallet shape of the putter Duke used to hole the birdie that clinched his first win on the senior circuit. The Series 91 uses 50 grams of tungsten in the heel and toe to build a moment of inertia over 5,000 grams-centimeters squared, distinctly high for the size of the head. As well, the design incorporates the company's trademark low-balance point weighting. The components include a lightweight (44 grams) graphite putter shaft and grips that weight as little as 29 grams. Together, that saved weight up top means the vast majority of the overall mass of the putter is concentrated toward the head. This is designed to allow the player to develop a more natural control of the face angle to bring it to square at impact. The Series 91 head is made of 303 stainless steel. $350, lengths from 32 to 36 inches.
