Callaway ORG 14 X Cart Bag Review

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.

Heavy Putter Lite Series Review

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.

Bridgestone B330 Golf Ball Review

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

Srixon Q-Star Golf Ball Review

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

Adams Speedline 9088 UL Driver Review

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.

Titleist Pro V1 vs. Pro V1x

Titleist may have some of the most played golf balls on Tour but what does that mean for the average golfer that isn’t making their living playing golf? Yes, most players have or at one time played with a Titleist golf ball but what makes them so special? Well it all comes down to design, specifically the dimples. That’s what distinguishing the Pro V1 and Pro V1 not only from the competition but each other.

The Pro V1 has a total dimple count of 392 with 5 different types where as the Pro V1x has a total of 332 dimples with 7 different types. Because the Pro V1 golf ball has more dimples it gives it more opportunity to cup wind resistance to increase spin rate, just imagine more dimples more speed. They are both made out of the exact same material so the “feel” is essentially the same on each golf ball. How Titleist explains the difference between the two as the ProV1 has “long distance with consistent ball flight” and the ProV1x has “Low Spin and Increased Velocity for Long, Straight Distance.”

Callaway Tour i(S) Golf Ball Review

Part of their 2011 line up Callaway introduced the Callaway Tour i(S) golf ball along with the Tour iZ, Diablo HT. What sets the i(S) apart from other golf balls is the technology, Callaway uniquely designed this golf ball to perform better. A HEX dimple design to reduce drag. A dual core improves both distance and control. A urethane cover is what gives the ball that softer feel and better spin.

They had great response and spin. Overall we would rate these as a solid performer. Definitely a soft feel at impact but your still able to get that good distance off the tee. Works great around the greens doesn’t scuff up too much. Comes off the putter face quickly. It’s most similar to the ProV1 with a bit less spin off the driver and long irons but still very responsive around the greens.

TaylorMade Tour Ghost Spider Review

We already reviewed the TM Tour Ghost putter on our site but with the release of the TaylorMade Tour Ghost Spider we had to see what this combination putter was all about. A mix between the ’08 Monza Spider and the ’10 Corza Ghost. Resurrecting the spider line after 3 years TaylorMade made some necessary adjustments to their popular putter series. They knew they wanted to go white because of those white ghost putters, demonstrating that it were easier to aim with than black, chrome or metallic putters.

What we liked about the new TaylorMade Tour Ghost Spider Putter was the moveable weights and the alignment features. A little bit about the weights: there are two weights located in the back of the putter which allow players to make the head heavier or lighter depending on how you want to customize it. We really liked the Pure Roll Surlyn Insert, performed great on the green, good, smooth forward roll. Another fun feature of this putter is the option to have a single-bend shaft or with a straight shaft that goes straight to the center of the face.

This putter has already received a warm reception on Tour as well. Jason Day, the Australian golfer making huge plays at this years majors so far finishing T2 and 2nd on the leaderboard. Developed by a Tour staff professional (Dave Stockton) it certainly lives up to their standards. “We’ve never made a putter that combines this kind of forgiveness and ease of use. Putting is all about confidence, and the Ghost Spider promotes confidence, big time,” says Stockton.

A reasonable price for a Tour level this TaylorMade Putter can be found at GolfClubs.com
