Golf Gear: Oakley Cipher, Sky Caddie GPS, Cobra ZL
Tee Tech: The hottest new stuff to get your game in gear.
Club Glove Last Bag is aptly named, because it may well be the last travel bag you ever need (no wonder so many tour pro’s use it for their sticks). The single-piece burst-proof construction made with water resistant nylon wraps your clubs, while the unique Stiff Arm enhancement rod keeps your club heads from harm or crushing from the top. $299, clubglove.com.
The Oakley Cipher is one of the lightest golf shoes available. The spike-less, NanoSpike technology allows your feet to be closer to the ground, ensuring better balance with a lower center of gravity. The NanoSpike is a ceramic-type insert that adheres to the bottom of the shoe in a Velcro-like fashion, and is easily removed and replaced when needed.
Sky Caddie SGXw GPS is the Cadillac of GPS devices, the new SkyCaddie SGXw provides a combination of unmatched accuracy (rated as most accurate GPS by Golf Datatech) with the convenience of “on-the-go” access to the most up-to-date course maps in the game. $399, skycaddie.com.
What differentiates the Callaway RAZR Fit from 90 percent of the other titanium drivers is its advanced carbon composite, which is lighter, stronger and more precise than titanium. You’ll see this club in Phil Mickelson’s bag on tour this year. $399, callawaygolf.com.
Cobra ZL Encore has a milled rhombus face insert, surrounded by a thin titanium perimeter. It creates nine points across a massive sweet spot that generates increased ball speed, even on off-center hits. $350, cobragolf.com.
Nike VR_S driver has an aerodynamically engineered head design and a longer, lighter, 45 ¾-inch Fubuki shaft. It feels effortless to swing, generating more speed at impact. $299, nikegolf.com.
