Crocs Golf Shoes PDF Print E-mail

 

When we met with the people from Crocs at this years PGA Show, I was curious about their new line

of golf shoes.They had my attention at the word "comfort".As a person who suffers from chronic foot

pain, their new line seemed like it was right up my alley.The model we tested is the Braydn, a casual

looking sneaker with exceptional performance features.The first thing you notice when you take the

Crocs Golf shoes out of the box is the light weight, and how stylish they are . . . once you lace them

up you'll be anxious to hit the links.

 

 

 

The outsole is a multi cleat spikeless design that provides exceptional grip and traction in all

conditions.During testing in both wet and dry conditions the Crocs Golf shoe performed

exceptionally well.

 

 



 

The water resistant leather uppers look great on and off the course, but my favorite part is the

comfort they provide while playing golf.They come in 3 styles: Preston, Bradyn, and Drayden.


The Preston features a classic premium leather style, the Bradyn (pictured above)has the look and

feel of a casual sneaker and the Drayden is a hybrid construction that reduces weight and adds

flexibility on the course.

TaylorMade RocketBallz Tour Rescue PDF Print E-mail
Written by BRUNO   

 

The buzz in 2012 for TaylorMade has been the introduction of the RocketBallz product line

also known as "RBZ".Recently LinksNation.com tested the RBZ Tour Rescue hybrids, the

Tour model is a lower spin version that enables the better player to control trajectory.

This model is for the single digit player or the golfer who's swing speed is faster than

average and likes the look of an open face angle at address .


 

A clean look at address, the white matte finish on the crown and black face are visually

great to look down at, and makes for easy alignment.(shown above Tour 2 - 16.5 and Tour 3 - 18.5)

 

 

The RBZ Tour has features unlike most hybrids on the market:

  • Open face angle
  • Neutral flight bias
  • Tour shaft options

 

 

All RBZ Drivers, Fairways and Rescues feature the speed pocket (for faster ball speeds), a

new innovation that distinguishes the RBZ line.


 


The RBZ Tour Rescue comes stock with an 85 gram Matrix Altus shaft, the non Tour model

comes with a 65 gram shaft with a lower kick point for a higher launch.



As far as performance is concerned, I never thought that any hybrid could get the Rescue

Dual TP out of my bag (they were the oldest clubs in my bag).What we found was the RBZ

was just more versatile. Launching the ball without ballooning to reach par 5's in two, or

being able to hit the lower flatter penetrating shot through the wind on long par 3's is a

must in windy South Florida.Most hybrids look shut (closed face angle), the RBZ Tour has

a slightly open face angle which only breeds confidence for the better player.TaylorMade

claims some serious yardage gains from the RocketBallz line, the RBZ Tour Rescue is a

stick that backs up that claim.

Written by BRUNO   

 

Lane Luoma's G.O.L.F, is a unique book that deals with the trials and tribulations that

all of us golfers deal with each time we hit the links.As you read along, you begin to

feel a sense of kinship with fellow golfers as we all deal with the same frustrations

and humility when it comes to Golf.

 

 

The book is aptly titled as G.O.L.F - Greatest Of Life's Frustrations.Lane really

covers the A to Z of all things golf.

 

In chapter 2 - Frustrated . . . . . Who me?, Luoma covers the 10 biggest

frustrations of the game:from slow play to bad luck to mother nature and more.

 

In chapter 7 - "Be The Ball", Lane Luoma covers the 77 distractions and

annoyances that come into play, for example #33: An inopportune "nature call"

and nowhere to go.

 

In Chapter 13 "Father Time is Undefeated" Lane states: Of all the opponents and

adversaries we face in the game, there is truly one that is actually unbeatable,

Father Time.He is undefeated and will remain undefeated forever.He's never lost,

never will and is absolutely invincible "HE DA MAN!"

 

The book is quite entertaining, funny and really an affirmation of just how crazy

the game of golf is.Lane's G.O.L.F reminds us that the struggle is part of the game,

and to enjoy the journey.

fast they are.With Ricky Fowler, Ian Poulter, and Lexi Thompson as their tour

players, they are making a huge splash in the game   . . . especially in the

younger demographic.Their new Amp line, and the Baffler fairway metals &

hybrids are gaining attention.The Puma line of apparel is also making waves

with its bold colors and exciting styles.Puma has always known a thing or two

about footwear and the new Cell Fusion 3 is their latest top of the line offering.

 

The clean lines and silver crown on the new Cobra Amp driver make this club very

appealing at address

 

 

 

 

The Black face on the Amp driver features E9face technology with dual roll to help on those swings when you don't quite hit the sweet spot.

This stick did not disappoint during testing, the high launch low spin has

everything a good player wants, while offering the forgiveness the mid to

high handicap is hoping for.The orange accents are an eye catcher, but not

distracting . . . the silver crown and black face is a great look when your

about to give your tee shot the "treatment".The sound at impact is just right,

not too loud not too muted.

Insta Golf Shoes PDF Print E-mail
Written by BRUNO   

 

 

In our February post on the PGA Merchandise show, one of our featured best new

products was the Insta Golf Shoe. Since then, we've received quite a bit of interest

about this very unique product . . . so a full test/review was in order.

 

 

 

 

As soon as the Insta Golf Shoes arrived, I strapped em up to a pair of casual tennis

shoes and took them to the range.It's easy to be skeptical of a product that is way

outside the box, and the Insta Golf Shoe is certainly that (I have to admit that my

first thought when I saw these in Orlando at the PGA Show was "damn, why didn't I

think of that").As a player with serious foot issues, I often wondered how I could

turn my most comfortable shoes into golf shoes.After a few hours on the range

standing in place, The comfort and traction were just superb.Next it was off to the

course, Champ Spikes are the industry standard for traction and they are the power

plant of Insta Golf Shoes . . . whether you're bombing a tee shot or climbing in and

out of a bunker, slippage is not an issue.

 

For the walking golfer, the frequent traveling golfer and the player that wears an odd

sized golf shoe that is hard to find (like triple E width), these are just a must have.

 

Perhaps the best and most convenient element of the Insta Golf shoe, is the ability

to peal them off and walk into the clubhouse or restaurant in the same

running/tennis shoes that you wore all day.For less than half the price ($49.95) of an

actual pair of golf shoes, you can transform any pair of shoes into Insta Golf shoes.
