Know the weather at your favorite course days before your tee time with the Bushnell Golf FXi Weather Forecaster ($125). This nifty gadget uses a wireless USB dongle attached to your computer to grab current, RealFeel and forecasted high and low temperatures, morning, afternoon and evening forecasts for the current and next three days, UV index, chance of precipitation, wind speed and direction. In addition, it offers an alarm with snooze, a backlight that changes color with current weather conditions, a lightning alert, the ability to save five favorite courses, and a database of over 16,000 courses in the US.
No matter if you're pushing, slicing, fading, hooking, pulling, or drawing, this driver will have your shot fixed in no time. The Nike SQ Dymo STR8-FIT Driver ($300), available in a traditional round head or square-shape (shown), gives you eight different head positions in one club, letting you adjust face angle, lie angle, and loft for dramatically improved ball flight. The shaft on the STR8-FIT is Nike's UST Proforce AXIV Core, which features a strengthening core material for greater impact and faster swings. The driver also features a new 360° grip design for any grasp. Our Nike SQ Dymo Squared STR8-FIT definitely added several yards to our used-to-be-pathetic drives the first time we took it out. (It's also making the TaylorMade R9 look a little wimpy.) But don't take our word for it — Nike STR8-FIT technology has already won at Augusta.
Can you say Mercy Rule? Team Uncrate used these Easton Bats to score 45 runs in the last three games, dashing the late-inning hopes of three unworthy men's summer league teams. Each techno-bat offers a larger sweet spot and quicker swing speeds than anything we've ever hit, making it tough to choose a favorite. With carbon and glass construction, the Stealth Speed ($399) and Synergy Speed ($399) offer Easton's lightest barrels for crazier MOI (Moment of Inertia) and faster swings. Easton's lightweight SV12 ($299) and V12 ($199) both utilize the company's Optimal Hitting Zone Technology (O-Zone) and are built with a special 12-element scandium alloy formula that produces incredible bat speed, max energy transfer, and pretty decent vibration elimination. These bats will turn any player into a powerhouse.
