Looking for an edgier alternative to the traditional wooden pool table? Check out the No. 6 Sculpted Steel Billiard Table from Carbon Studio ($27,000). Designed and handcrafted by Colorado sculptor Daniel Romano, each table features a hot rolled steel finish with polished edges, hand formed metal pockets with rubber liners, and cold formed steel legs. In addition, every table is built to BCA standards and packs tournament grade bumpers as well as looks that would make Batman proud.
Just because the snow's gone doesn't mean you can't get some boarding in. The Freebord ($210-$340) is a snowboard for the pavement, with outside wheels that act just like the edges of a snowboard, and center wheels that act like the petex base. Need to stop? Just edge in and slide to a stop, just like you do in snow. All you need is a hill and some pavement. [Thanks, Justin]
Bring the course to you with the Full Swing Golf Simulator ($TBD). Like the simulators found in golf stores across the country, the Full Swing system allows you to use real clubs and balls to play over 50 real-life courses, including Oakland Hills and St. Andrews, providing valuable practice and unlimited drunken fun. Two 360-degree curtains of infrared beams provide exact and immediate ball-flight statistics, so you can be sure that you really would have hit your ball into the Pacific on the 18th at Pebble Beach.
Yes, we just wrote about a putter on Friday, but we'd be remiss if we didn't tell you about the Grafalloy Epic Shaft ($135), which Trevor Immelman's used this weekend as he won the 2008 Masters. The shafts are made using molecular nano-crystalline metals from PowerMetal instead of traditional metal or graphite, providing tremendous strength to weight properties, and the feel of graphite with greater distance and as much as a 35% improvement in shot dispersion. Whether you're a weekend hack or a 1-shot handicapper, you'll find a lot to like in these new shafts.
Just in time to help out on those tough Augusta greens (don't we wish...), the Taylor Made Rossa Monza Spider Putter ($200) brings the company's movable weight technology to the Texas Wedge. The Monza provides increased stability, forgiveness, and a great roll thanks to its steel wire-frame head construction, strong aluminum core, and its unique "wings," putting more of the putter's weight on the perimeter. Seeing as how it was the number one putter at last week's tourney, we're sure it'll make a great addition to your bag.
