If a golfer was ussing too much right hand during the swing, this Reflex driver produced by the Reflex Manufacturing Company of Cincinnati, Ohio, offers a most novel solution!  A series of thick revolving plastic washers are built into the handle for the golfer's right hand to grip.  According to an ad in the June 1927 issue of "The American Golfer," the revolving washers/grip on the Reflex driver eliminated hooking and slicing, and was the key to consistency and lower scores.

"Lower your score the first round with the new Reflex Driver. Prove it at our risk. Let us send you a Reflex Brassie Driver. Then take that friend who has been drubbing you pretty regularly out to the club.

At the first tee, the fun will begin. Just take your regular stance, and swing hard, without fear of hooking or slicing. Smack! The club head will meet the ball squarely, sending it shooting down the fairway for one of the sweetest, straightest drives of your life. On your next drive, you'll repeat. Hole after hole, the good work will continue, and you'll turn in a card to cheer about."

Unlike the two other known roller grips, which consist of a single revolving cylinder for the golfer's right hand to grasp, the Reflex roller grip uses twenty revolving plastic washers, stacked one on top of the other. They revolve flawlessly when gripped by the right hand. Original shaft is 43 1/4" long.

The head is marked "Reflex / Manufacturing Co. / Cin'ti, O" on top and has a brass plate on the bottom, mounted by four screws.
