Powder metallurgy (P/M) offers a viable, cost-effective approach to fabricating sports and leisure equipment components. Both complex, monolithic parts and parts produced from materials of quite different densities can be manufactured by this technique. In the latter category, lightweight titanium and heavyweight tungsten can be used in combination to optimally distribute mass, such as in golf club heads. Examples of P/M components used in golfing, skating, baseball, and even darts are presented.
