You asked. We delivered. For years, our loyal readers have pondered one very important question. “What gear do you guys use?”
Our Toolkit is the emphatic (and longwinded) answer. Listed here are gear items that we use on a daily basis. From the things that power our Most Wanted Testing and Ball Lab, to the cool camera gear that make our videos sparkle … It’s all here.
Whether you’re looking to build an indoor golf simulator, or just want to dink around with a few golf balls you found in the woods, we have the gear you need to succeed.
