What We Like: Amazing feel and craftsmanship. The shaft over the hosel design is pretty sweet.
Who It’s For: Discriminating golfers who want super sound and feel.
Specs: Milled cavity-back or blade designs in black or stainless finishes.

|F2 Hamilton “Big Luv”

What We Like: The perimeter back-weight design combined with a center shaft position lends an awesome feel.
Who It’s For: Golfers who want a mallet design that can be customized to accommodate arcing or straight-through putting strokes.
Specs: Milled center-shafted mallet with adjustable weights.

|Gel Golf Hurrion Signature
Key Feature: Gel’s four new additions to the Paul Hurrion Signature series features True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 iron shafts, not putter shafts. This move reduces the “impact ratio” and increases its forgiveness on mis-hits.
What We Like: The clubs’ horizontal grooves that are milled onto a soft aluminum insert.
Who It’s For: The series features two new blades and two mallets (the Ora is shown), so there’s one for everybody.
Specs: The four new models join four others from last year.
