The Clicgear Accessory-fest

Oct 12, 2015 | 8 Comments

I have a purchased a few basic Clicgear accessories over the years, but I never realized just how many cart accessories are available.

Go ahead, guess how many.

Short answer is a lot!

That got me thinking….if Dave, Golf Spy, and lover of push carts, had no idea that Clicgear offers so many accessories, then perhaps the push-carting mygolfspy readers didn’t know either.

NO1 50 PRO: The Best New Grip of 2015?

Sep 21, 2015 | 10 Comments

It’s difficult to explain a tactile experience through text, but let me see if I can’t give you a better explanation. Much as I enjoy playing NDMC gripped clubs, there is never any question that the firm NDMC is part of the club. With the NO1 50 PRO, the grip really interfaces with my hands, blurring the boundary with hands and club shaft.

The softness of the elastomer allows your hands to become one with the grip. It sounds like a cheesy PR line, but that’s the best that I can do describing it.

Let’s find out. [READ MORE]

2014 Golf’s Most Wanted Push Cart

Aug 5, 2014 | 31 Comments

Who makes the best push cart? Which one has the features I want? Which one is the lightest? Will a cart work with my cart and my carry bag? How many steps does it take to fold and unfold? Are there differences in the brakes? Is one cart more stable than another? Which is the easiest cart to push?

For a push cart to be Golf’s Most Wanted, it must perform on the golf course. Golfers want a cart that is easy to push, holds their bag securely, stays put when the brake is on, and has enough storage to hold their gear during play. We tested these features and more. Here is how we scored the various Playability components. [READ MORE]

The Shoe Philes – adidas gripmore

Jul 23, 2014 | 21 Comments

It may seem strange that in a year when adidas has arguably the best tour shoe they’ve ever created (pure 360), a casual styled shoe with an unusual sole design would take top billing. That’s exactly what’s happening with gripmore, and that should tell you exactly how excited the guys at adidas golf are about the gripmore’s new spikes. [READ MORE]

Gadget Review – Swing Caddie SC100 Personal Launch Monitor

Mar 25, 2014 | 76 Comments

It’s pretty cool to think you can now have your own launch monitor roughly the size of a cell phone for less than the cost of…well…a cell phone. Sound impossible? The people at Voice Caddie believe they have created just such a device.

Like Trackman and FlightScope, the Swing Caddie SC100 is a hand-held, Doppler Radar-based launch monitor. Unlike those systems, which range in price from $10,000 – $22,000, the VC300 can be yours for under $300. Is that even possible? [READ MORE]

Buyer’s Guide – Best Rain Gloves

Jan 9, 2014 | 30 Comments

So you’re headed to Bandon Dunes for the ultimate guys trip – the trip of a lifetime. You’ve got your rain suit, and an umbrella, but I’m guessing you didn’t spend much time researching what rain glove to buy, or even worse, you didn’t even pack a set of rain gloves. You’ll buy some when you get there, right?

You basically just tossed the trip of a lifetime down the drain because you’re probably not going to be able to grip your clubs.

Got your attention? – Good!

Read on to learn which gloves will keep you making contact no matter how wet it gets, and which gloves will have you cursing up a storm when your driver goes flying down the fairway. [READ MORE]

The Shoe Philes – Nike Lunar Clayton

Dec 26, 2013 | 31 Comments

In perhaps more politically correct terms, Clayton is Nike’s modern take on the classic Cap Toe Oxford style. In the white model the Lunarlon outsole (I believe the color is Nike’s Venom Green) gives the shoe a bit of a modern twist that’s recently been described as “subtly loud”.

I like loud. I can learn to live with subtle.

More to the point (my point anyway), with its retro good looks, and spikeless design, Clayton brings some serious pimp style to the golf course. I thought I heard “Shaft” playing the first time I slipped them on my feet. READ MORE

The Shoe Philes – PUMA Golf Monolite Spikeless

Dec 23, 2013 | 4 Comments

Monolite also illustrates PUMA Golf’s relatively new-found commitment to creating almost nothing but lightweight shoes. They’re calling the new line LiteStyle, and Monolite is merely the first of what I suspect will prove to be a very robust footwear lineup from PUMA Golf. And oh, not for nuthin’ just wait until you see the more traditional spiked models. READ MORE

The Best Putter Grip For YOU – Our 2013 Run Down

Dec 19, 2013 | 24 Comments

Putter grips have gone wild this year. Established companies have expanded their offerings, while new companies expanded market presence beyond what they could have ever expected. We saw grips in new shapes, various diameters, and various lengths. We saw the traditional materials retained, but materials also expanded into the realms of high tech polymers, natural rubber, specialized leather, and even cork. Even stock grips stepped it up with brighter colors, new geometries, and different textures. READ MORE

Golf Gadget Review: SkyCaddie GPS Watch

Jul 15, 2013 | 25 Comments

Based upon my experiences with the Skycaddie Breeze and the SGXw, the Skycaddie GPS Watch has some pretty large shoes to fill. The question that came to mind when I started testing the watch was could a limited feature watch achieve the same level of performance as its full-featured cousins?

I came away very impressed with the SkyCaddie GPS Watch, much more so than I expected. If this little guy told me about sand and such, it could easily become part of the regular golf toolbox. There is really something to be said for just looking quickly at your wrist for a yardage number. If front/middle/back is all you really need, and watches are part of your golf ensemble, I think that you will like what the Skycaddie GPS Watch has to offer. [READ MORE]

Golf Gadget Review: The Sony Action Cam/V1 Golf App

Jul 9, 2013 | 4 Comments

Do you ever ask yourself that question? I do all of the time. Most of the time it is not that formal. We’re talking more like “WTF has happened to my swing!”

You think you know what is wrong with your swing, but your instructor can see what is wrong with your swing. I could say something trite like seeing is believing here, but I wont. However, there is a big difference between thinking you are flipping through impact again and seeing your hands flip. If only there was a way to see our swings from the perspectives of the instructors.

What’s that?

Devices exist that can actually record moving images? I wonder why nobody has ever used one of these video cameras for golf before…

Enter the SONY Action Cam. [READ MORE]

Can it Continue Perfection? The Clicgear 3.5+

Jun 3, 2013 | 44 Comments

Here we are in 2013 and Clicgear has updated their pushcart to the new Clicgear 3.5+ model. We have all learned from the madness that is iPhone updating that going from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 4S is not the same as going from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 5. That was my first thought when I read the release about this new cart. We are transitioning from a Clicgear 3.0 to a Clicgear 3.5+. Like the smaller iPhone updates, I don’t expect a major overhaul. Instead, I expected the Clicgear 3.5+ to keep the great features of the Clicgear 3.0, and add some new minor options to improve on the existing model. Can you improve on perfection? Or, is Clicgear running straight into the proverb of if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.[READ MORE]

7 Fixed-Spike Casual Golf Shoes for 2013

Apr 27, 2013 | 27 Comments

Last year was my first complete season exclusively playing a casual fixed-spike golf shoe. In play were a new pair of the original 2010 TRUE Linkswear Tour shoes, which, by the way, are still my favorite shoes in golf for a variety of reasons. There is just something about being able to drive to the course and step out of the car ready to go in your golf shoes that makes the game more enjoyable. [READ MORE]
