While we reviewed the V1 cart back in November Sun Mountain has decided to revamp and update the cart already. The new Sun Mountain Speed Cart SV1 is the latest innovation out of this industry leaders factory. The 3-wheeled model has their signature ergonomically correct handle making it easier to push around on the course. Like any good push cart it’s easy to fold and unfold. One of the essential features this golfer needs to find in a good push cart. What I also liked about the easy set up was how small it folded down to. The wheels are a little bulky but the overall size isn’t bad to work with (see picture). Some outstanding features we think you might like include the retractable score card try (very easy to use and handy), great storage compartments big enough to but your GPS or rangefinder in, and the umbrella mount because rain or shine I’m probably on the course.

TaylorMade followed up their award winning R11 series with a set of irons suitable to be as praiseworthy. The most noticeable difference about these new irons is the red “Precision Weight Port” which creates a uniform weighting between club series. Created for players who seek that classic iron shape but the refinement of tour-grade irons and the technology of TaylorMade’s engineers. New technology added to make these irons more forgiving, straighter, and longer. Marketed to a large audience the R11 irons are a great fit for a vast amount of players. These are not just irons for the tour and skilled players.
With an expected release date of early September the R11 irons take the best of both world’s from the Burner 2.0 and the Tour preferred irons. A one-piece stainless steel cast head is thing with a lightweight face. True to TaylorMade these irons were created with inverted cone technology for consistent ball speeds and forgiveness.

Not one, not two, but three handles in all let you toss this golf bag around carefree. With a total of 10 pockets I don’t think you will have to worry about not fitting in a few extra tees in your bag. If that wasn’t enough one of the pockets is insulated so you can bring along your favorite beverage and keep it cool during your round. With a cart strap tunnel its easy to load this bag into any golf cart. A molded 14-way rubber divider lets you organize all your precious cargo while take the tee.
As far as performance goes with this bag it’s one of our favorites. Stable, well made bag. It’s extra features really make it a good purchase. From the putter tube to the insulated pockets it really has everything a golf bag should have. Great size golf bag and easy to tote around in between rounds. With 10 pockets it sometimes gets a little too full and heavy but we can’t blame that on the bag. Overall, great golf bag for any golfer. We found it at GolfClubs.com for the best price.
While the name may be a bit of an oxymoron Boccieri Golf definitely knows what they were doing when it comes down to their putters. When they first introduced heavy putters into the market there was nothing comparable to them. It was as its name suggests a heavy putter, touted as its best highlight for its ability to make a smooth consistent stroke. While some found the series a bit too heavy they came out with the Lite Series of Putters.
The Q2-L putter is part of the Heavy Putter Lite series that we reviewed. It has a traditional look and is a beautiful blade style putter. The head is a slim 375 grams. When you look at the face of the putter you are able to see the milling marks. On the green it makes great putts and has a fantastic smooth feel. Not ideal for players who like to rotate putters often but it’s the perfect option for players looking for a putter that will give them a smooth role on the green.

The Bridgestone B330 golf ball is one of the most well designed and thought out golf ball I have ever played with. While Bridgestone is a big name to live up to in the golf ball community I think their latest star attraction lives up to all the hype. Dedicated to the innovation of this ball they don’t forget about quality. The Tour B330 line breaks down into a few different subsects: the regular Tour B330 and the B330-RX for golfers with various swing speeds to have a tour ball option.
The most important advancement on the Tour B330 series is the 330 Seamless Cover Technology. designed to reduce drag and hold the ball in the air longer. They updated this formula to make the new models softer and with a slightly different dimple pattern to encourage penetrating ball flight. Of course let’s not forget these are professional grade level golf balls matched for swing speeds over 105 MPH so they are built tough.
Overall these are a great series of golf balls for serious players. We did like the fact that they also come in Optic yellow if you need a little extra help finding your golf ball. The B330’s will definitely give your game the ultimate control from a golf ball. You can find the B330 series and other Bridgestone Golf Balls at GolfClubs.com
The frontrunners to Pings new G20 collection is their driver. Part of a long line of game improving drivers their latest addition follows suit. The technology used in the G20 driver builds on the technology developed to enhance a golfers ability to hit it farther and straighter than it’s predecessor. Also a slightly wider face at address than the former G20 driver but not to the extent of the K15.
This driver is awesome, it has a very hot face, and much more . What was a surprise was the launch angle, definitely has a higher launch than what most drivers have on the market today. We really enjoyed all the new technology enhancements the G20 driver had to offer, it’s definitely worth checking out if you have the chance. A Tour version is also available which is designed for better golfers with higher speeds that will produce lower trajectories.
With a slogan “question everything” Srixon’s latest golf ball has plenty to live up to. The next stage in their popular STAR (Spin, Trajectory, Acceleration, Responsiveness) line of golf balls continues on from the Z-Star. The new Q-Star golf ball has been upgraded by adding a larger core for better distance and a softer highly resilient thin cover and soft core.
First looking at them they look very similar to the Z-Star. Performing they worked great on drives, flew straight with the occasional slice. As advertised it’s best for golfers who have swing speeds over 80. Definitely added serious distance similar to Bridgestone’s e6. Working with the irons I got great ball flight and it just soared. Working with the short game clubs the ball worked great around the green. Overall it hits straight, long, and with great spin. You can order the Srixon Q-Star Golf Balls at GolfClubs.com
Two of the most played high performance premium golf balls are TaylorMade’s Penta and Titleist Pro V1. Used by Tour players and exalted by awards and testers.
The main difference between the ProV1 and the Penta is spin. Titleist has been cited as the maker with the best spin. However, Penta has been praised for it’s side spin and ability to stop on the mark. Pro V1 however will spin more on shots around the greens and inside 60 yards but anything outside their basically identical. What it comes down to is spin and where you want it to spin overall the Pro V1 has more spin and the Penta has the ability to stop spot on. Depending on what your looking for they are both phenomenal performers and that’s why they come with that high performance price tag.
The latest edition to Adams golf line of drivers comes the Speedline 9088 UL Driver. Following in the footsteps of their lightweight drivers this aerodynamic design was created to help balance a golfers swing and make hits off the tee easy. With more power than their previous drivers due to a new balancing system which gives the club a higher balance point and a lower swing weight.
The appeal of this club is it’s lightweight club which which comes in as sub-300 grams. The swing weight separates it from the rest of the crowd. The lighter weight driver on the market ended up with very high swing weights. Definitely helps those players who tend to have a slice or hook with the new technology they should be hitting the ball straighter and longer like Adams promises.
When Adams first introduced their Redline Series of Irons critics found them to be a bit gimmicky looking. But there are critics for everything and these were probably the people who hadn’t tested the irons out yet. A few notes first about the Redline Irons Set is it’s a combo set of long hitting irons and hybrids. Designed with distance as the primary goal, golfers can design the set to suit their skills choosing from various hybrids and irons. Definitely a game improving set made with the intention to hit the ball longer. This 8 club set comes with Adams winning hybrids added for no extra charge.
In testing they hit great and definitely have the ability to be bit long if you hit them well. Forgiveness was definitely a big factor with these clubs. You get great results if you hit them in the center of even those off-center hits still go straight. Not too far off center but enough to call them a forgiving iron. The distance is still there though which I found to be extremely impressive. Overall good distance gains and a great set of clubs if you want the ability to customize your order with irons and hybrids for an extremely reasonable price.
