Zero Friction ZFT Maxx 3-Prong TeesOAK BROOK TERRACE, Illinois — Zero Friction™ made a name for itself in the golf industry in 2005 when it created the 3-prong and 4-prong Performance Tee. Golfers had not seen anything like it at the time.

“We eliminated 66% of the tee surface coverage to the ball which enabled more ball to club face at impact and increased feel,” said Zero Friction President John Iacono. “When tested at Golf Labs we proved the ball traveled 5 yards further and had 50% less dispersion.”

The unique invention significantly reduced the contact area between the tee and ball by 66%, leading to longer, straighter drives.
