Ping Sigma 2 Tyne – Reviewed by Mike Blackmore (Fife: handicap 5)

Why did you decide to buy the product?

I already play mostly Ping clubs, so for continuity reasons I tried new Ping putters. This putter has the adjustable shaft from 32-36in, which makes it easy to set the correct length. I use a mallet-style putter and the Ping Sigma 2 Tyne model stood out.

How has it performed?

The putter has been performing really well. It produces a good roll and a pleasant sound off the face. It has a long, simple alignment line and a good-quality Ping PP60 mid-size grip that is the perfect size and shape for me. The sturdy headcover will also help in handling the challenging Scottish weather!

TaylorMade Milled Grind Hi-Toe wedge – Reviewed by Damon Butler (Cardiff: handicap 23)

Why did you decide to buy the product?

As someone who is relatively new to golf, I have been playing consistently for a few months now, the main area of my game that cost me a lot of shots was my short game especially out of bunkers. The wedges I had were slightly older models and I had no real confidence with them which is probably the worst thing to happen when playing out from the sand. Because of this I bought a HI-Toe wedge with 60 degrees of loft to give me a helping hand.

How has the product been performing?

I always liked the look of the Hi-Toe wedges so that was an immediate plus for me and I feel like I can be way more aggressive when around the greens. Out of bunkers I believe I have become a lot more consistent which is vital because I want to keep on lowering my handicap. Sometimes I get the occasional bad strike but that is more likely to be my lack of skill than the clubs fault! In all I can definitely see myself buying possibly a couple more of these wedges because the 60-degree has performed so well for me.

Adidas Tour 360 XT SL shoes – Reviewed by Peter Mansfield (West Byfleet: handicap 8)

Why did you decide to buy the product?

With the summer months approaching I decided to buy a pair of spikeless golf shoes for the first time as I wanted something lightweight and waterproof that I could wear both on the course and in our clubhouse, these fit the bill perfectly. I loved the styling of the shoes and thought they were well priced for the quality

How has the product been performing?

I have been really impressed with the grip despite the lack of cleats. I thought they would just be a ‘summer shoe’ but the grip was excellent even when it rained recently. The ‘Boost technology’ adidas have is incredible too. They’re definitely the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned, it feels like I’m playing golf in my slippers!
