New from IGOTCHA, the country’s best-selling golf ball retriever, comes the UltimateXL ($49). Nicknamed the “Granddaddy of all Golf Ball Retrievers,” it stretches out to a lengthy 18 feet (with your arm), but folds down to a mere 20 inches, making it easy to hide in your bag’s side pocket. This durable ball retriever is a must-have if you’re always in the wet stuff. Available at, as well as golf retailers and sporting goods stores nationwide.

PUMA Golf’s latest offering, the Cell Fusion ($180), blends the latest technology with cutting-edge style. Its iCell technology in the forefoot and heel comes with an array of hexagonal inner-cell components in the midsole for enhanced cushioning and stability. The TPU outsole features not only molded Smart Quills, but also new, replaceable Smart Quill spikes with locking technology. Comes in sizes 7-13 and can be found on PUMA Golf’s wunderkind Rickie Fowler. Two-year waterproof guarantee.

Featuring three distinct models, Slotline’s new SSi-600 Series putters ($199) include the SSi-691, SSi-692 and SSi-693 (692 model shown). The putter line incorporates multimetal construction with years of tech know-how to produce a desired high moment of inertia (MOI). Available in blade and midmallet, and offered in right-handed models only. Lengths measure 33 inches, 34 inches and 35 inches. All three models are equipped with tri-milled 6061 aluminum face inserts, promoting a softer feel at impact.

Adams’ Speedline FAST 10 Fairway Wood ($299) comes in both neutral and draw models. Built with a weight pad positioned in the back for a neutral ballflight and in the heel for a draw model, the FAST 10 delivers easy-to-hit shots with maximum distance. Comes in three lofts (the draw comes in two) and either an Aldila Wasabi or Matrix HD shaft. Also comes in a women’s model.

The XCG-3 hybrid ($199) from Exotics Golf is the company’s first hybrid with a tungsten sole. Its thin maraging-steel cupface was designed to improve rebound off the clubface. The XCG-3 also includes two internal weight pads that help lower its CG.

Callaway’s new Solaire golf set was built for women to increase distance, accuracy and forgiveness. Available in both 14-piece ($899) and 9-piece ($599) configurations, the Solaire sets provide women with everything they need to take their game to the next level. Both sets feature an Energy Efficient Design that optimizes every element of the golf club to maximize performance. Lightweight clubheads feature draw configurations and higher lofts, grips are lighter, and shafts are flexible. Look for the Solaire golf ball, as well.
