Majority of golfers, regardless of caliber, are meticulous when it comes to golf. The right golf club and the right golf ball, along with a golfer’s inherent skill and talent, could spell victory even in the direst of conditions. The Callaway Golf Company is the biggest golf club developer, manufacturer, distributor and seller in the world. They offer a wide variety of golf clubs ranging from high performance wedges to premium quality irons. The company’s latest lines of irons are the X2 Hot and X2 Hot Pro Iron.
The new X2 Hot irons have chevron shaped stabilizing arches on the back of their cavities. This feature allows the lower parts of their faces to have greater flexibility upon impact. It also allows golfers a greater level of maneuverability and helps the ball retain its speed and trajectory.
The X2 Hot irons are also designed with a deeper undercut at the back of their faces, which enables them to have longer reach compared to their ancestors, the X2s.
Like the X2 Hot irons, the X2 Hot Pro irons are also equipped with stabilizing arches. This enables the iron to produce a consistent ball speed and prevents unwarranted bending of the golf club’s top lines. These arches also improve the golf club’s sound and feel.
The X2 Hot irons and X2 Hot Pro irons are the cheapest irons amongst the company’s 2014 catalog. This is due to their construction. Both of these models are cast which is a more cost-efficient way than forging. Nonetheless, their cheap construction does not affect their overall performance. These two golf clubs have a more compact design compared to their predecessors. Their soles have a thick center and a thin heel and toe, a design inspired by the Callaway Golf Company’s X Forged irons soles.
Both the X2 Hot and X2 Hot Pro Irons are equipped with company’s height progression system which allows the weight to be adjusted to suit a golfer’s preference. The weight is moved higher with short irons for a low trajectory with great spin, and lower with mid and long irons for higher trajectory and lesser spin.
The Callaway Golf Company’s X2 Hot irons and Hot Pro Irons are relatively cheaper than most golf clubs in the market. They are versatile due to their adjustability. They both produce consistent speed and trajectory. They deliver an excellent performance.
Their appearance does not fare well with majority of the golfers. There is also a minor issue regarding durability since they were made using the casting process.
Majority of the reviews regarding these two golf clubs were positive. Many were pleased with their performance. They were able to satisfy their golfing needs and delivered surprisingly great results even though they were relatively cheap and had an unappealing appearance. According to them, the X2 Hot and X2 Hot Pro irons enabled them to send the ball flying with consistent speed and reach. They were also well pleased with the adjustability of the design giving them a number of equipment configuration choices to choose from. They were also able to prove to themselves that its appearance had nothing to do with their performance.
On the other side of the coin, a number of people were displeased with the X2 Hot and X2 Hot Pro irons appearance. A number of people stated that their designs were unappealing and bland. A number of people also stated that no one should use an ugly “golf club” even though they performed great. Some also said that they were disappointed at the Callaway Golf Company as these golf clubs were indicative of regression. Some even claimed that the company is at high risk of closing down if they kept “this” up.

ID Lanyards are selling like hotcakes now. For one, schools require them. Read any student manual and you will see the section about IDs and wearing them with lanyards. Why not turn this rule into a business opportunity?
While the actual designing and manufacturing will take time and effort, not to mention a keen eye for art and detail, and technical skills, striking a business deal with manufacturers and distributors can be used to your advantage. The benefits of reselling lanyards are indicated as follows:
1. You will just take care of the selling and marketing, but the dirty work is shouldered by the manufacturer. Arrangements can be made so that you can order ID lanyards for wholesale, which also means you get them at a lower price. Once you have the items, you can already think about the markup price and your strategies for selling them.
2. ID lanyards are customizable. Students like wearing different designs and won’t to buy any lanyard that tickles their fancy. Conduct a market survey or research on the Net about the trends and cool designs that young people like nowadays.
3. Apart from being easy to pack and keep, ID lanyards are non-perishable. Hence, you will not have a problem storing them in your room or office. They can stay there for months and you will just have to think of killer marketing strategies to reach your clients so that your products will be fast-moving.
4. Getting lanyards for wholesale saves you an immense amount of time. The arrangement of this business is basically you picking up the items from the manufacturer or distributor. You now have an option to put up a website so you could sell your lanyards to a wider market, or rent a commercial space so clients could see your items up close.
5. As long as there are students and employees, lanyards will not go out of style. Schools and offices will always mandate wearing IDs and in the process, the lanyards as well.
How successful will this business be? It depends on you and the manufacturer or distributor you work with. It is best to find a company you could trust. Look at the quality of the cord, the type of fabric used, and the designs. Because you are merely the reseller, you really can’t have a say on the design of the ID laces, but you can choose what you think will be saleable.
For the younger set, bright and bold colors will work. Pupils love to see their favorite cartoon characters or comic book heroes etched on the fabric. Young adults, on the other hand, might look for bold designs, too. Pastel colors might also catch their eye.
Employees might go for a more sophisticated style; subdued colors and neutrals are perfect for office ID lanyards. As for designs, there are plain ones and printed ID laces as much as there are for younger customers.
Not convinced yet? Just think about how much you can earn from hundreds of students and employees, who are your potential clients. With strategic planning and business acumen, you could be reselling lanyards and getting more items faster than you thought you could. Remember that lanyards are accessories that are found anywhere – there is tough competition. So, keep in mind these tips:
•Find a reputable lanyard-making company. •Maintain a good working relationship with your chosen manufacturer and distributor. •Add a reasonable markup price. A lanyard that costs too much will not be appealing to students. •Choose lanyards made of quality material and cool designs. •Be your own model. Wear a sample so that potential clients would see how the lanyards look when worn.
By following those, your entrepreneurial pursuit will surely be awesome. Have fun with your reselling business![...]
