The blade-style body of Titleist's 712U forged utility iron ($259/graphite shaft, $229/steel) has a deep CG and high MOI. It's more stable and playable than a traditional long iron, producing more trajectory and spin control than a hybrid. Titleist.com

Adams Golf's Idea SUPER 9031 hybrid ($200) for low-to-mid handicappers has a tiny 80cc clubhead with sole and crown slots that enhance ball speed. Its thin stainless-steel clubface produces a spring-like effect. Adamsgolf.com

SkyGolf's SkyCaddie Watch ($200) is preloaded with maps and distances of 30,000 courses. It displays yardages to the front, center and back of every green on a convenient wristwatch. Plus, it doubles as a clock, an alarm, a stop watch and an odometer. Skygolf.com)

It's no longer a secret, that's for sure. We put these Boccieri grips to the test ourselves and we're amazed at how well the counterbalanced weighting felt and performed. Each Secret Grip ($16) has a 17g tungsten cap in the butt end, resulting in a feel that's better tried than talked about. Trust us, it really works. Boccierigolf.com
The new Tour Edition grips come in a variety of colors and in matte or shiny finishes, all sporting the classic wrap style that many players love. Better yet, these grips absorb zero water, meaning a simple wipe of a towel keeps them completely dry. They also last a long, long time. Touredition.com
The Duratech grip from Winn is the company's most radical grip to date. Featuring a mix of Elaston ETX rubber with WinnDry XT Polymer, the Duratech combines the best in tackiness and feel. The upper hand is firmer than the lower hand. In fact, it's our favorite grip that Winn has ever made. Winngrips.com Winngrips.com

By now, you probably know the Black Widow brand for its spikes, but the company also makes some awesome grips, too. Among our picks is the Hybrid grip, which combines added traction in the upper region and a soft feel down low. bwgrips.com

Sharpro is a small grip company with big potential. How do we know? We've tried the 3CAT, and it's the real deal. The anti-torsion bars actually help prevent twisting, which means you can swing harder and not worry about any slipping. sharprogrip.com
