iLLFA (independent loft, lie, face angle adjustability)
2007 – G1
iLLFA or double cone technology involves paired leaning bore parts, which can rotate relatively, and define independent loft, lie, and face angles for a golf club.
Customization of hollow form golf clubs, with golfer and OEM inventory benefits. Applications outside golf include self aligning bearing detail.
- NZ: Notice of grant
- WIPO: All claims allowed
- Nationally filed in Europe and USA
Can be used to align or misalign depending on the requirements.
Easy Recall Indexing
2009-10 – G2
Associative indexing system where the letters of a word are used to define, and facilitate recall, of settings for iLLFA. So in the image to the right here the individual letters of the word E A R T H represents a sequence of L to R settings of face angle (with loft change constant at -1* from standard).
SWING and CLOUD define a further 10 setting options, for 15 in total in this example.
To aid golfer recall of alternative settings for iLLFA, but may have applications outside golf.
