Odyssey Stroke Lab R-Ball Putter – Reviewed by Jakki Moxon (Wrexham: 28)

Why did you decide to buy the product?

I bought it as a replacement for my previous putter, which had broken. As soon as I picked it up, I knew that it was something special. The pistol grip is chunky, but tapered, making it a delight to hold. Weight distribution is completely different from my previous putter too, and a considerable improvement.

How has the product been performing?

Alignment is easy due to the ball and three lines on the head. My strokes are much smoother and more consistent, allowing me to achieve appropriate pace effortlessly on long putts. Short putts are steadier and straighter. Previously, I was a hesitant and nervous putter, but this purchase has given me genuine confidence on the greens.

Cobra King F9 Driver – Reviewed by Adam Holgate (Chelmsford: 18)

Why did you decide to buy the product?

I’ve become increasingly frustrated with the upward price of drivers. I needed an upgrade and noticed the Cobra King F9 had some good reviews and was quite a lot cheaper than most others so thought I’d give it a try.

How has the product been performing?

I’m really happy with it. The heavy front weight is keeping my spin down, it’s carrying a good 10 yards further than what I had before and it’s really forgiving. I’ve now got the confidence to use it on tight holes where before I’d be reaching for a hybrid.

Mizuno JPX919 Tour Irons – Reviewed by Mike Chapman (Swanage: 5)

Why did you decide to buy the product? 

I have always liked the look and feel of Mizuno irons so having tried the various clubs in the JPX919 range via a fitting it was the Tour model that came out best for a combination of feel, distance and dispersion. The swing analyser suggested the shafts to try and we ended up settling for the Nippon steel and I opted to modify the lofts slightly stronger for more distance and even gaps through the range.

How has the product been performing?

I couldn’t be happier with my new irons. They look and feel great which gives confidence and the strike is so pure it’s awesome. The increased yardages compared with my old irons took a bit of getting used to but now I am used to them they work really well for me and I am hitting more greens than with my old iron
