Labels: Shoes, GT Tech Awards, Training Aids, Equipment, Balls, Wedges, Irons, Woods, Putters, Clubs, Drivers, Blades, Hybrids, Fairway Woods
The year 2010 certainly didn’t disappoint when it came to great new stuff, as we witnessed a slew of new products and technologies that made a big difference in how the game is played. Among the winners this year are:
Excellence In Adjustability Award:
TaylorMade R9 SuperTri
TaylorMade continues to lead the charge when it comes to making quick, on-the-fly adjustments to driver properties. The R9 SuperTri was a big hit with us.
Distance Through Geometry Award:
Adams Speedline FAST 10 Woods
Designed to cut through the air and promote a faster swing speed, these woods are among the slickest-looking (and fastest) drivers we hit in 2010.
Slice Buster Award:
Nike SQ MACHSPEED STR8-FIT
One of the few square-shaped drivers left in 2010, this driver isn’t just straight, but more aerodynamic and faster than previous square drivers.
Breakthrough Of The Year:
Srixon Z-STAR Tour Yellow
It’s not just a urethane yellow golf ball, it’s among the best new golf balls we tried all year. Big distance. Big greenside spin. (Big grins on the green, too)
Unique Design Award:
TaylorMade Rossa Corza Ghost
An all-white putter designed to help aid in alignment. And with Dave Stockton’s input, you know it’s gonna be good.
PING iN Series Putters
PING has long been pushing the envelope as far as new putter designs. The many in the latest iN series are definitely going to set some trends—including more one-putts.
Top Craftsmanship Award:
Mizuno MP-58 Irons
It’s no surprise to see Mizuno taking top honors in this category again. The DNA in the gorgeous MP-58 irons is as slick, smooth and attractive as it gets in an iron.
Most Surprising New Driver Award:
PowerBilt Air Force One
We think PowerBilt isn’t only back, but back in a good way. The new Air Force One driver is no joke—one of the best we hit in all of 2010. Yep. They’re back all right.
