Odyssey Stroke Lab Marxman Putter – Reviewed by James Adkin (West Sussex: 18)

Why did you decide to buy the product?

I‘d always used an off-the-shelf blade putter but my backswing would often not maintain the correct path, which would result in off-centre strikes. When tired or nervous I would often turn the clubhead and miss putts I should really have been making.

How has the product been performing?

The results of a fitting showed a mallet putter helped improve my club path. The feel is great and I get the added benefit of the long alignment line. The fitting was a quick and fun process that has resulted in me having a putter I know matches my stroke, boosting my confidence.

Titleist TruFeel Ball – Reviewed by Bill Martin (Bildare: 7)

Why did you decide to buy the product?

I have to be honest I am a Titleist fan boy. I had a voucher for my old club I needed to use up. I spotted these and decided I’d try them for my winter golf instead of Pro V1’s. So bought them off the shelf on spec.

How has the product been performing?

I was very pleased with the result. Nice off the wedges all be it to soft-ish greens. Very nice off the putter with lovely roll. The biggest surprise to me on the cold damp mornings was the extra yardage. I’ve gained a club, possibly as its harder than Pro V1’s but haven’t noticed any major performance issues. Very pleased and will be my choice of ball over the winter.

Ping G410 SFT Driver – Reviewed by Olly Cole (Watford: 16)

Why did you decide to buy the product?

After some 1st and 2nd places in comps this season, I was given some vouchers as a prize for the local golf shop, so I elected to have a driver fitting. I was looking to hopefully gain a few yards without sacrificing straightness over my old driver, which was the G30 SF Tec.

How has the product been performing?

In the fitting, the G410 was about 10 yards further than my old G30, but I was surprised at how much straighter it was also – on average it was much nearer the centre line. This may be in part due to the Tensei Orange shaft, which the fitter also recommended to me as a natural fader.

In three rounds out on the course I’ve even seen a slight draw on several of my drives, which shows you that the ‘straight flight technology’ does what it’s supposed to! Even the sound is crisper and more satisfying than the G30. I have a lot of confidence with it, knowing the big slice right isn’t really an issue. Delighted.
