We spent the past week at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. Here our picks for the coolest and most innovative items on display from some of the leading manufacturers and some you may not have heard of.                                     



                                    Adams Super LS Fairway and Hybrid
  –The perennial #1 hybrid on the PGA Tour just got even more powerful and much easier to look at.





                                    Cobra Amp Cell Driver
One driver, six loft settings, four color choices all powered by a Fujikura Fuel shaft at $299… Cobra is ready to strike!




                                    Wilson Duo Golf Ball
  –It’s the longest ball Wilson has ever made and at just 40 compression, the softest ball on the market. DUO is a true performance double take… seriously.




                                    Tour Edge Exotics XCG6 Driver
 –Four face angle / loft settings with an advanced multilevel face design not only maximizes ball speed on all strike points on the face but assures Tour Edge Exotics will no longer be a well kept secret.




                                    TaylorMade RocketBladez Tour Irons
  – An easy to hit distance iron with 2 wins and 3 second places in its 1st month on Tour is sure to get our attention… and they look great to boot.                     



                                    TaylorMade R1 Driver
The flagship offering from the #1 driver company on the planet… enough said.




                                    Volvik Vista iV Golf Balls

                                    The #1 Color Golf Ball on Tour. This 4-piece ball provides the best playability for tour players and advanced golfers and puts some fun into your game.



                                    Nike Covert Driver
–Each year Nike is getting more serious about golf. This driver with its cavity back bottom is a bold statement that says they’ve arrived.



                                    TaylorMade RBZ Stage 2 Tour Fairways & Rescues
  –– Rocketballz took the world by storm last year. With full adjustability these babies are indeed, Rocketballz-ier.



                                    Axis1 “Joey” Putter
  – Axis 1 was the first 100% balanced putter with the center of gravity right on the center of the striking face and perfectly aligned with the axis of the shaft. Now with the “Joey” they’ve made it easy on the eyes.



                                    Rife V-motion and E-motion Golf Balls
––Rife has a reputation for quality, buttery soft feel putters. Innovex has been producing tour quality golf balls at great price points. Now one big happy family.  A great ball with a bright future. 



                                    Pearl Putters
–It combines custom ergonomics with personalized aesthetics. The lie angle can be adjusted between 60 degrees and 80 degrees of center. The putter’s shaft design focuses your stroke force directly into the back of the golf ball. What’s not to like?
