In 1998, Golfsmith, a company out of Texas, bought the Snake Eyes brand and began making and distributing Snake Eyes golf clubs. Although the Snake Eyes brand was under new ownership, the golf clubs didn't really change. The clubs were still made with innovative technology meant to improve a person's golf game.
There are three Snake Eyes Drivers on the market (as of 2010). The 685T open-faced driver is priced at about £110 (all prices as of October 2010) and it comes in lofts of 9, 10.5, and 11 degrees. It weighs about 200g and has a volume of 460cc. Like the 685T driver, the Python XLD driver weighs 200g and has a volume of 460cc. However, it comes in lofts of 9.5 degrees with a .5 degree face angle, 10.5 degrees with a square face angle, and 11.5 degrees with a .5 degree closed face angle. The Python XLD is priced at about £117. The Viper MGC driver is the most expensive Snake Eyes driver at about £130. It comes with a 9.5 degree loft, a 460cc volume, weighs 204g and has a .5 degree open-faced angle.
There are four different Snake Eyes iron package options. The Quick Strike Q4 bundle will cost you about £117 (as of October 2010) for all clubs from a sand wedge to a three iron. The loft on each club will be somewhere between 19 degrees for the three iron, and 56 degrees for the sand wedge. The weight of each club will be somewhere between 226g and 296g, and the bounce for each club will be 3, 4, 5 and 13 degrees. The Python XLD iron set, priced at £221, will give you irons from a four iron to a sand wedge, each weighing 246 to 290g. The loft of each club will be between 20 degrees and 53 degrees and the bounce on each will be 3, 4, 6, 8, or 12 degrees. The £260 685OS Snake Eyes irons is composed of clubs from a three iron to a pitching wedge. Each club weighs 238 to 290g, and each club has a loft of between 20 and 45 degrees, with a bounce on each club of 2, 3, 4.5, 6, 7 or 8 degrees. The most expensive Snake Eyes irons option is the three iron to pitching wedge 685X set, priced at £279. The bounce on each club is between 2 and 7 degrees, and the loft on each is between 20 and 45 degrees. Like the 685OS set, each club will weigh between 238 and 290 grams.
There are a number of different putters under the Snake Eyes brand. The Viper Tour SV1 ($85 as of October 2010) has a 108mm long face and a 24.4mm face height. The SV1 comes with a loft of 3.5 degrees and a lie of 72 degrees. The £58 Strike Line HMOI 3 model has a face length of 113mm long and a face high of 19mm. Its loft is 3.5 degrees and its lie is 72 degrees. Like the SV1 putter, the Tour Platinum 7801 has a 108mm long face and a 24.4mm face height, a loft of 3.5 degrees and a lie of 72 degrees. The 7801 is priced higher than the SV1, however, at about £81. The 7801 was designed with an Advanced Roll Control pattern, which gives the ball a faster overspin with less skidding and bouncing.
