new and notableEmotional Rescue
Since 2004 when Innovex Golf launched their System RLS wedges, the company has vowed to make affordable golf clubs. Now they’re applying that philosophy to their new line of E-Motion golf balls ($35/dozen). The E-Motion features a Progressive Motion Dual Core that produces a firm feel off the tee and a soft touch around the greens. A unique Aeroblend cover and 392 dimple pattern provide Tour-like trajectory. www.innovexgolf.com

new and notableMagnetic Attraction
On the heels of their popular dual-banded sports bracelet, Trion:Z introduces the sleek Palette Mag-Titan ($149). While the Palette, made from Ti-22 Titanium, is more formal in appearance than its predecessor, it still retains Trion:Z’s therapeutic properties, generated by medical-grade magnets and minus ions. Add to that a capsule of minerals that release more minus ions than any other bracelet, and you have positive energy wrapped around your wrist. www.trionz.com

new and notable Groovy
Getting (and then keeping) your putter on path is a must for anyone who struggles with making solid, square contact. Previous training aids have addressed traditional arc strokes, but Z-Factor’s new Perfect Putting Machine ($299) can be adapted for six different swing planes, from arc to square-to-square strokes. The multifunctional training aid takes five minutes to set up and features a ball position indicator, stance alignment aid, optional clip for laser alignment and a magnetic carriage that attaches to your putterhead. (It can be reversed to fit left-handed players.) www.perfectputtingmachine.com
