Motocaddy, the UK’s top-selling trolley brand, has given its popular S7 REMOTE electric trolley a stylish upgrade for the 2017 season, while retaining one of the most sophisticated guidance systems on the powered trolley market.
The latest S7 REMOTE incorporates a number of new improvements from the original hands free model introduced in 2015. These include a more compact fully rechargeable remote control Lithium handset that fits neatly into an integrated holder located on the underside of a new soft-touch ergonomic handle. The handset can also be topped up during play thanks to the patented USB port that can also charge GPS and mobile devices.
Along with technological advances, the latest new-look model features a streamlined battery tray to accommodate the sleek Lithium battery used to power it, along with distinctive branding on the signature S-Series frame in a smart new Graphite colourway. (more…)
Bubba Watson will add even more colour to next week’s Masters as he’s set to play a Green Volvik S4 golf ball at a Major for the first time.
The two-time Masters champion signed a multi-year agreement on New Year’s day with Volvik, the brand leader in multi-coloured performance golf balls based in South Korea. As part of the deal, Bubba can decide whether to play with a Green, Pink and White ball on any day of his choice.
So far this year, he has played largely with the Pink version of the premium-priced ball on the PGA Tour. But Volvik has now confirmed that he will play a Green ball at some stage during the Masters tournament in an attempt to win a third green jacket. (more…)
Wilson Staff, the pioneering brand in low compression golf ball technology, goes into the 2017 season with a ball designed for every category of golfer featuring the DX2 Soft, the DX3 Spin and the DX3 Urethane.
The DX2 Soft golf ball – credited as the world’s softest ball with its ground-breaking 29 compression – is designed for the Distance player seeking less spin off the tee and soft feel around the greens. The 2-piece construction, first delivered in 2008, delivers the lowest driver spin rate on the market to aid accuracy off the tee while the 302 dimple pattern produces a consistent ball flight and its firm cover generates a higher trajectory to benefit long approaches to the green.
“We’ve been at the forefront of golf ball technology and low compression balls since we started and we’ll continue to conduct the research and testing needed to stay there,” said Frank Simonutti, Global Director of Innovation for Wilson Staff Golf Balls. (more…)
Just a few months after the successful introduction of its first Downhill Control trolley – the S1 DHC – Motocaddy, the UK’s top-selling trolley brand, is adding a second model, this time to its popular compact-folding M-Series range.
The new M1 PRO DHC incorporates the same standout features as the M1 PRO, including the three-point folding system that has been developed to enable the trolley to fold over 40% smaller than standard models. But it can also maintain a constant speed while moving down a gradient – thanks to a special single motor that offers downhill braking, coupled with an electronic parking brake.
The trolley’s power output is adjusted automatically to control the rate of descent without the golfer having to make any changes to the pre-hill speed setting, while the simple to use electronic parking brake will hold its position on the steepest of slopes thanks to an innovative solenoid braking system.
