No other researcher and club designer has energized the craft of custom club building more than Ralph Maltby, founder of The GolfWorks and renowned “Father of Custom Fitting.” Described by Golf Digest as “one of the 36 most powerful men in golf” and a member of the Professional Clubmakers’ Society Hall of Fame, Maltby has influenced every aspect of modern club making.
In fact, Maltby wrote the book on golf club fitting, assembly, repair, and dynamic play-ability, literally. His first best-selling book – Golf Club Design, Fitting, Alteration and Repair is a 900 page hardcover book, now in its fourth edition. It is still an official reference manual of the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) of America, while another of Maltby’s books, the 2001 second edition of The Complete Golf Club Fitting Plan, is the official fitting book of the PGA. He has also written The Golf Club Assembly Manual and Golf Club Repair in Pictures, both used by golfers worldwide.
Until now it has been very difficult for amateur golfers to receive the same level quality golf club designs that professionals receive. Nakashima golf is leading a revolution for all golfers, which will enable them to experience the benefits of a fully custom fit set of tour-quality golf club designs.
“The increased distance and accuracy achieved with perfectly fitted clubs can help every golfer reach their full potential. At Nakashima Golf, we provide all golfers with an even higher standard of quality then PGA Tour professionals enjoy.”

Model: FC-One Irons
Material/Mfg: Investment Cast 431 Stainless Steel
The FC-One irons were the first unique design program I performed for Swing Science. The design scope was a game improvement construction with a game forgiveness appearance. The FC-One irons hit the mark perfectly and has suited Swing Science’s network of club fitters very well. Utilizing a variable vertical center of gravity the FC-One irons were the first Swing Science model to adhere to the newly introduced USGA rule on groove conformance.
Single Length Golf Club Designs
Dan’s Custom Golf Shop has recently added 2 Single Length golf club designs where every iron is the same length and same lie.
Tom Wishon’s Sterling Single Length iron set
Sterling Irons® Single Length Set
A unique golf club design to be built to one length for all clubs. This will allow a perfect match of all elements of swing feel for shot consistency.
Single length construction ensures all possible elements of swing feel are identical for each club in the set – same MOI, same total weight, same head weight, same balance point –
to offer the chance for improved shot consistency.
Identical length and lie allow the golfer to use the same stance, same posture, same swing plane for improved shot consistency.
The Sterling’s come in a high COR 4, 5, 6, and 7 irons, which offer proper distance for the low loft clubs at the shorter single length. Other single length sets may lose distance with the low loft clubs. Currently there is an optional high COR #5 hybrid available.
Pinhawk Single length irons
The Pinhawk ‘SL’ single length irons are the same length irons – 4 to Lob wedge. This allows the golfer to learn one setup for your irons, develop the same swing, on the same plane, with the same ball position for each iron. This helps to quickly develop consistency throughout the set.
The Pinhawk SL not only are all the same length, but they also feature the very latest in iron technology. They incorporate a game improvement design without looking “clunky”. They have extreme perimeter weighting and a true deep undercut for the ultimate in forgiveness. Despite having a game improvement design, the SL’s have a very manageable sole width, and a low (3 mm) offset on each iron.
The loft is slightly wider than traditional irons in order to maintain a proper distance gap between all your irons. You will find that your distances will be very similar to a ‘conventional’ set of irons, where the long irons have 5* and the shorter have 4*. This will help control and improve the yardages between clubs.
