Golf Gear: What’s New?

 

BIG MAX BLADE Animation

Since introducing golf’s first push carts more than 20 years ago, BIG MAX has continued to extend the category, notably with the recent launch of the award-winning Blade model. Retailing for $299.99, the ultra-slim Blade features proprietary “One Fold” technology that allows the cart to quickly and easily collapse into a five-inch profile for a minimal storage footprint. Weighing less than 15 pounds, the Blade conveniently slips into a travel cover, making it ideal for golfers seeking to eliminate turf mess in their vehicles. www.bigmaxusa.com.

DST Compressor Wedge

When looking back at the greatest ball strikers to play the game, they are able to reach the optimal impact position and maintain control of the club face after the ball has been struck. DST Golf took this knowledge and created the DST Compressor, a curved shaft club that replicates the shape of a normal shaft under maximum load. This gives golfers a set up position that closely replicates the optimal impact position which helps build muscle memory of an address position and optimal movement through impact. Mastering these mechanics improves accuracy and consistency, ultimately lowering scores. $99 www.dstgolf.com.

 TalonOutside

The New Talon Golf Glove from Caddy Daddy features their Tack Fusion™ grip technology designed not only for high comfort
and maximum hand flexibility, but also to promote a tacky or sticky grip that fosters a relaxed grip during the golf swing. The top of the glove features a flexible and form-fitting micro-suede material while the palm is made of a durable and tacky synthetic material that becomes even more effective (tacky) after a machine wash or damp cloth application. Also features a detachable ball marker. www.caddydaddygolf.com $17.99
