Odyssey Stroke Lab Double Wide Putter – Reviewed by Les Hines (Maidenhead: 17)

Why did you decide to buy the product?

I was struggling with my putting and it was the only club in my bag I’d not been fitted for. I had a fitting with my club pro and my stroke suited a toe-hang putter, not the face-balanced model I was using. We found the Stroke Lab Double Wide blade suited me best.

How has the product been performing?

The putter has been performing really well. I love the feel of it and having been fitted for it, I know that if it’s not performing it is down to me rather than the putter! During a skins competition recently, I managed to sink a couple of clutch putts, which felt really good!

Volvik S4 Ball – Reviewed by Elizabeth Morrison (Monifieth: 29)

Why did you decide to buy the product?

I’ve been using two-piece golf balls believing they maximised distance, but I then read an independent report suggesting that three- and four-piece balls deliver longer distances, even at slower swing speeds. So I bought a box of Volvik’s pink S4.

How has the product been performing? 

Frankly, I’m not seeing any increased distance, but I am not losing any either. I have been working hard on my short game this year, with some success prior to switching, and I am getting noticeably more control and predictability around the green since changing.

Callaway Rogue X Irons – Reviewed by Phil Moore (Haslemere: 20)

Why did you decide to buy the product?

I have been collecting clubs from friends and family but I needed to invest in a set of irons I could call my own. I went for the Rogue X irons from Callaway because I got on well with them when I tested them briefly, and the price point fitted me perfectly.

How has the product been performing?

I feel as if the irons have given me a lot more peace of mind, especially in terms of mishits. The forgiveness has been brilliant, to the point where I am not losing much distance regardless of where I strike the ball. I love how these irons look over the ball and in my bag.
