Izzo Swing Stick

Friday, August 15th, 2008

izzo.bmpI’ve been having real problems of late with my back swing, I’ve been coming right in the line from take away and as a result have been very wristy and have developed an occasional hook/draw. I’ve lived with it for a while now but thought id try to do something about it!

I had a trawl through the online golf website and eventually came across the Izzo Swing Stick. At only £5 I thought it was worth a punt… and I was right! The adjustable strap when attached to your arm or chest really does help keep the swing along the correct path and I recon with some practice I will be back as I was in no time!

Well worth £5 if your looking for an inexpensive solution to your swing demons!

New Ping V2 Rapture

Friday, August 15th, 2008

If you’re a Ping fan then expect to be very excited… the guys at Today’s Golfer have shared with us the exclusive new Ping Rapture V2 range and the S57 irons.

Ping’s new range has promised to become their ‘top of the range’ irons and the new S57 irons are the answer to the ‘better’ players iron.

I have to say they look fantastic and I cannot wait to get my hands on them!

V2 Rapture Irons

The V2 Rapture irons are following very much down the line of the G5/G10 irons with a large, forgiving sole and thick top lines which are going to accommodate a whole range of golfers.

Ping have described the Ping Rapture V2 irons as ‘Innovative Game improvement’ clubs that feature stronger loft angles for better distance and oversized heads for maximum forgiveness.

These new V2 Raptures are due to hit the shops in the Autumn and we can be expected to pay £120 per iron for the steel shafts, obviously not going to be the cheapest set around!!

See the Today’s Golfer demo video here

V2 Rapture driver

The new 460cc Rapture V2 Driver is also expected to hit the shops in the Autumn, the 460cc dirver cinsists a titanium and tungsten head with external weighting pads designed to offer the maximum forgiveness and lowest spin rate in the ping range.

The driver is set to come in 9, 10.5, 12 and 13.5 degrees and be around the £310 mark. The guys over at Today’s Golfer have been lucky enough to test the 10.5 degree and they seem convinced already! Needless to say then that I cant wait to write my own review on this one when the rest of us get a chance!

See the exclusive, first hit video of the V2 driver ….

S57 Irons


The S57 irons are the new players irons in the ping range, the irons not only look fantastic but the verticle stabalising bars are there to offer consistent ball flight whilst still maintaining some forgiveness on the off centre shots.

The S57 irons are due for relaease in early September and again are likely to be priced individually at around the £90 mark.

Nike Men’s Forged TW Wedge

Sunday, August 10th, 2008

tw.jpgIs there much difference in the top of the range wedges? Well I don’t know but after I tried the new TW wedge this weekend I was certainly impressed, but to me the difference between these and the X-tour wedges were not all that apparent. I think therefore at the end of the day, it has to comes down to personal preference, and as to what make or model you want in your bag!

Now these wedges do differ from many others in that they feature a pronounced muscle section toward the trailing edge of the club head. And of course a big selling point to this club will be Tiger’s recognisable TW shield logo. There I also a new heel grind as well as a cutaway heel to remove unwanted bounce and greatly increase the chance of crisp contact.

Overall though I really like this club, it looks better than the X-Forged wedges which I wa very fond of, but do they differ in performance? I don’t know, as I said I think it is down to personal preference as to what you want in your bag!

Titleist 905R Driver

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

9052.jpgLooking for a tour proven driver from one of the biggest and best names in golf today, then the 905R driver from Titleist is a must try. This ball crushing driver is a benchmark for the all Titleist drivers, with its enormous pear shaped head and huge multi –spotted sweet spots this is a great driver for players of all abilities.

The 905r is the driver of choice of Zach Johnson and was used when he won the 2007 Maters at Augusta.

Titleist’s new 900 range drivers with their distinctive pear shaped profile and shallow face sit naturally square to address to give instant confidence. The 460cc head offers greater forgiveness and its sweet spot is 35% larger than some of its smaller companions.

The altered weight distribution provides the 905R a deeper centre of gravity and more spin than the 905T. The 905R also offers higher spin and a higher launch angle than the 905S offering greater consistency in trajectory path for players not looking for a low launch angle.

The 905R comes in a selection of lofts and shafts which are capable of optimising launch conditions to custom fit each golfer.

This is a quality driver and has proven results on tour.

Only £150 from online golf in their clearance, down from a rrp of £350 that’s over 50% off.
