Nike Vapor Fly Driver Review

Nike Vapor Fly Driver Review
It has been a while since my last review on GolfBox Reviews YouTube, due to our new GolfBox Joondalup Superstore being built. (See video below) 
My first product back in the 'reviewing saddle' was the Nike Vapor Fly Driver. Which has caused quite a stir since it's first unveiling due to it's colour scheme and level of engineering. You may like it, or you may not, but I'm pretty sure I am with the majority who love this golf clubs aesthetics and innovation. The colours really prove to me how trendy and modern the game has become, with it not looking out of place next to Lionel Messi's soccer boots. 

Taylormade M2 and M2 Tour Irons Review

Taylormade M2 and M2 Tour Irons Review
It's no secret that Jason Day is one of the Longest players on Tour. With a average drive of over 300+ yards the Australian really doesn't hold back, but it's the height he launches the ball that separates him from the rest of the field. This was the design goal of the new Taylormade M2 Irons which manages to launch the ball higher and further than ever before.


M2 IRONS DON'T JUST GO FARTHER THAN THE COMPETITION, THEY GO HIGHER. MEANING YOU'LL NOT ONLY HIT THE GREEN, YOU'LL STAY THERE.

Taylormade M2 Driver Review

Taylormade M2 Driver Review
The big 'M' lives on, with the recent release of the new Taylormade M2 range. Your first question will probably be "What is difference between the Taylormade M1 and the Taylormade M2?". Well, I have the answers here. 
I recently purchased the Taylormade M1 Driver after my GolfBox review (see below), as it seriously performed. It was low spinning, very long and most importantly lowered my dispersion rates. 
The M1 is all about adjustability, as one driver could offer over 10,000 different fitting set ups. This includes Loft (8.5-12), Front track (18 positions) and Back track (15 positions) to name a few. This is ideal for the golfers wanting to dial in the ball flight or limiting the bad shot, but for some golfers it could be very overwhelming having this many options available. This is where the Taylormade M2 fits in. 

Callaway XR16 Driver and Fairway Woods - Review

Callaway XR16 Driver and Fairway Woods - Review
A driver that doesn't need much of an introduction. The Callaway XR16 has 'flown' into the golf headlines with their new affiliation with Boeing. A partnership that is unique, but very effective for both parties involved. Callaway managed to find out that the Boeing encounters similar physics during flight, to that of a golf driver. Meaning the experts at Boeing could redefine aerodynamics in the driver to achieve a faster possible club head speed.

The 'Extreme' Puma TitanTour Ignite Golf Shoe Review

The 'Extreme' Puma TitanTour Ignite Golf Shoe Review
I am going to start this by saying how much I love Golf Shoes. You can never have too many, or this is what I keep telling myself to make myself feel better when adding the latest purchase to my ever growing Golf Shoe collection. Remarkably I am also very picky with choosing the correct shoe and would be any retailers worst nightmare. 

Why am I so picky? well I usually have my head down when playing golf, whether this is at address or just the general disappointment of my golf game (happens alot). So I do see my golf shoes alot! 

I had the absolute pleasure of being able to take the new Puma Ignite shoes for a 'test drive'. Straight away I fell in love with the overall looks, bright attractive colours and sporty feel. Which is what Puma Golf is all about. But what is so different about the Ignites?

Cobra King Golf Bags

Cobra King Golf Bags
What is not to like about the Cobra orange colour scheme in golf bags?

I have always enjoyed the vivid contrast between the black and orange. The new Cobra King Golf Bag range includes a lightweight stand bag, universal fitting cart bag and a stunning Tour bag. The whole range supports the recent release of the Cobra King LTD Drivers and fairways with its orange and black space-like design and is clear to see that Mr Rickie Fowler had a little input in the colour choice. If you want to stand out from the crowd and compliment your new cobra clubs then do not look any further. The bags are very functional and focus on the most important aspects when carrying or carting or if you are lucky enough, caddying.

Cobra King F6, F6+ Drivers and Fairway Woods

Posted by Alex Etches - GolfBox on 10/22/2015
Cobra King F6, F6+ Drivers and Fairway Woods

Lots of speculation out there on the new Cobra F6 and F6+ range. One photo is going round social media that is making everyone talk. It was spotted out on the range on Tour. We 'understand' that it is blue and does feature a sliding weight that is very similar to the back trajectory weight on the Taylormade M1 Driver. It is called the CARBONTRAC and it looks very large for a sliding weight, so it should have some reasonable effects when sliding the weights front to back. It also 'appears' that there are 5 stages of trajectories, allowing you to dial in on the most effective flight to suit your personal needs. Sliding the weight to the back with give you a 'towering' flight and sliding it to the front will give you a 'penetrating' ball flight.

Mizuno JPX EZ Driver 2016 Review

If you had to create your own golf driver, what would be your main focus?

Personally, i would create a driver head that looks appealing at address and allows me to produce a more confident golf swing. Well, either Mizuno have read my mind, or this is a more common request than what i first anticipated. As the new Mizuno JPX EX Driver features one of the friendliest heads at address that i have ever seen. Designed with a larger footprint than previous models the new EZ is a high launching, low spinning driver with multiple adjustment options.

Cobra King LTD Driver

Every year golf companies produce tempting new products with more adjustability, different CG locations and even lighter materials. But I don't think we have ever seen anything quite like this! With the legacy of the 'King Cobra' returning with ground breaking innovations, that have never been seen before within our golf industry. Introducing the new Cobra King LDT Driver.

The news is out that the Cobra 'King' is back and has been completely redesigned with help from space experts to provide the best in golf innovation. This includes the new Spaceport. The spaceport is a 16g weight that locks with a Spiralock to securely fast and withstand heavy loads and vibrations imparted throughout our golf swing. All this was inspired by the space station observation platform when working along side The Center For The Advancement Of Science In Space (CASIS).

Callaway Apex Hybrid 2016 - Sneak Preview

Callaway Apex Hybrid 2016 - Sneak Preview

Earlier this week Callaway Golf unveiled the Callaway Apex CF16 irons. These irons are designed to offer the consumer a high performance iron that is targeted at better players. The face cup technology was created for the Big Bertha range and have been carried over to a better players forged iron for the first time. This gives the Apex CF16 a serious amount of fire power and forgivess for lower handicapper iron, without jeopardising forgiveness.

The new Callaway Apex 16 Hybrid was also unveiled at the same time to compliment the set. It has been no secret that hybrids have also replaced the longer irons in sets, as they are more forgiving and easier to launch. The only negatives about hybrid clubs are their ball flight characteristics, as they have yet to replicate a irons trajectory and spin rate.

With the New Callaway Apex Hybrid this could be a thing of the past.

Taylormade PSi And PSi Tour Iron Review

Taylormade PSi And PSi Tour Iron Review

Taylormade's main goal for the PSi range was to create a better players, performance golf club. This is not something that you tend to hear together. As you either have a small headed better players golf club, that is ideal for workability. Or you have a bigger cavity with more performance improving technology.

Have Taylormade achieved the almost impossible task of using a better players head design and equipping it with performance enhancing properties?

Callaway Apex CF 16 and Apex Pro Irons 2016 - Sneak Preview

Callaway Golf unveiled their latest range of golf irons this morning, with huge changes to cosmetics and technology. This new range will hopefully cement their position as one of the leading iron manufacturers for 2016.

The predecessor to the 2016 Apex Iron was targeted at the better player and proved to be a very successful iron for the lower handicapper. The new Apex irons hit the same target market, with inspiration from the Callaway PGA Tour staff players to provide a workable iron with a classic look. The main goal for Callaway was to provide an iron that combines distance and workability, which has been achieved by installing the popular 360 cup technology in a forged head for the first time. This gives the 2016 Apex a hot and consistent face, that is especially effective on mishits.

Mizuno have been forging heads in Hiroshima, Japan for well over three decades to cement their position in the market as one of the best forged iron manufacturers.

Callaway Great Big Bertha Driver Review

Little did we know that in 1991 the birth of a golf driver could change the face of golf for decades to come. Named after the powerful and explosive World War 1 Mortar, The Big Bertha Howitzer. The 1991 Big Bertha (for its time) offered a very forgiving 253cc stainless steel head which really set the benchmark for the 'golf driver'.

For over two decades, Taylormade Golf have been designing a Driver that bends laws in Golf Driver innovations. Lots of hours spent on creating something that is 'different' and performs better than anything else in the current market. With one goal in mind, to create Taylormades Longest Driver.

Have they achieved their goals with the New Taylormade M1 Driver?

Mizuno 2015/2016 Irons

Posted by Alex Etches - GolfBox on 8/10/2015

The Japanese forging masters have returned, with the latest instalments of the 2015/2016 Mizuno iron range. With over 30 years of experience in forging irons, these are not to be missed.

For the higher/mid handicap golfers we have the Mizuno JPX EZ Forged Irons. For the lower handicapper the Mizuno MP-25 irons.

The previous Mizuno JPX 850 was the first iron to include the new Boron Element. Due to the popularity, which is largely down to its performance. Mizuno are now featuring it in most of their new range.


Why Boron? Well Boron is a much stronger and versatile element than any other materials used in iron development. Making the iron head stronger than ever before.

Mizuno Launches New Product

With the release of the MP-15, MP H5, JPX 850 and JPX 850 Forged, Mizuno have again not disappointed. Bringing to the table some advanced technology, I’m sure we’ll begin to see Mizuno product making its way into the bags of more golfers.

Simplified Fitting – How too much information is hurting your game

Posted by Glenn Paul - PGA Professional on 9/22/2014
Today’s technology provides a whole range of data relating to both ball flight and club delivery. Throw in websites and forums with everyone giving their 2 cents worth of information and you can see just how quickly golfers become confused about the best way to get fitted.

I’m going to break the fitting process down for you to make it easier to understand that all these numbers, shafts and heads don’t have to be as confusing as what people make them out to be.

The State Of The Game

Posted by Glenn Paul - PGA Professional on 9/22/2014
We are continually hearing that golf is in a decline and that the industry is doomed. While this may be true to some extent, the game as it is currently being played needs to shift to promote a healthy growth.
