New up on Kickstarter this week for golfers are two teaching gadgets and custom golf club shaft wraps.
The Pitch: Jolly Golf is an aluminum device that attaches to your clubs for short game practice sessions. The device is designed to block incorrect wrist movements, encourage proper rotation of the shoulder and develop proper rhythm in the swing. The producers also suggest that for beginners, it can get them into the game more quickly.
Why I Might Be Interested: It looks like something I could tuck into my bag and practice with while waiting on slow days at the course.
The Pitch: Designed to help with putting practice, the PuttMate is a ramp with a hole in the front and a collection box in the rear. Missed putts are automatically returned. Putts made are collected in the box.
Why I Might Be Interested: Winters are long here in Michigan, and putting is something nearly everyone can do to stay in touch with the game.
The Pitch: Raptor Shafts are colorful plastic wraps that will give your clubs a new look. The plastic covers adhere with 3M Control Tac adhesive, so they are easy to put on, and leave no residue when removed.
Why I Might Be Interested: Adding a little color to your life never hurt.
Still in the pipeline from last week:
The Pitch: The OctoFit is billed as a complete fitness toolbox. Utilizing different parts of the device, you can work on aerobic, resistance, balance, flexibility and core training. There’s also a online workout system.
Why I Might Be Interested: It looks like it would be a nice home gym to stash at the cottage in Northern Michigan for use when I’m away from my gym in Ann Arbor.
The Pitch: The NYSW Fitness Tracker Analog Watch looks like a traditional analog watch, but tracks activities and calories, offers notifications, and has reminders to drink water or take pills. Haptic feedback notifies you of messages. It also automatically adjusts to the time zone, making it perfect for travelers. There’s also an app that connects to it.
Why I Might Be Interested: I prefer the look of an analog watch, but also want to track steps and calorie burn. The NYSW watch is a nice solution to that conundrum. I think the watches are really nice looking.
