PING G400 Max Driver

Puetz Golf Price: $397.00

Few golfers are as unique as Patrick Reed. While the 2018 Masters champ is notoriously difficult to work with (players last year voted him the one they’d be least likely to support in a fistfight), he’s also one of very, very few who play at the highest level of […]

TaylorMade M3/M4 Drivers

Puetz Golf Price: M3 – $499.99 | M4 – $429.99

After crunching data from half a million shots, TaylorMade researchers noted that the traditional driver face design — a slight, consistent bulge from heel to toe and crown to sole — was causing shots high on the toe and low […]

PING G400 Irons

Puetz Golf Price: Steel – $112.50/club, Graphite – $125/club

Before UW grad and PING founder Karsten Solheim retired from the company he founded 50 years ago, he told his young engineers to “follow the physics.”

In the decades since, there might be no better example of that than the new G400 irons, which […]

PING G400 Driver

PUETZ GOLF PRICE: Starting at $397

When manufacturers refer to a driver’s aerodynamics, they’re usually talking about at a certain angle — namely, the final, roughly level stretch as you bring the club through the impact zone.

The fact is, though, that your driver twists through multiple different angles on the downswing — customizing the […]

Spitzer RL150 Cart

MSRP: $1,299

Let’s get this right out on the table, so that it doesn’t become the elephant in the room — at $1,299, the Spitzer RL150 cart (they call it a “trolley,” for reasons that will become obvious shortly) is an investment. But, if you’re fortunate enough to be in a position to afford […]

Fourteen Golf HI-877 Utility

Puetz Golf Price: $299.99

In June, we wrote a lot about the waves that Japanese manufacturer Honma is making in the U.S. market. They’re hardly the only ones bringing sweet new technology across the Pacific, though.

Fourteen Golf has been in the U.S. market for nearly two decades, its profile raised by Ernie Els’ win […]

Callaway EPIC Irons

Puetz Golf Price: Starting at $1,149

Callaway’s GBB Epic driver has been the top seller so far in 2017, vastly outdistancing the competition both at the cash register, and on the golf course. So, it should be little surprise that the company has invoked the name — and the technology — once again in its new […]

Bettinardi Putters

Puetz Golf Price: Starting at $299.99

Between researching products for Cascade Golfer four times a year, writing weekly product reviews for the website, and traveling to consumer golf expos all over the country, we see a lot of new golf clubs, and hear a lot of techno-speak from manufacturers and their representatives. So it […]

adidas Tech Response 2.0 Shoes

adidas Tech Response 2.0 Shoes
Puetz Golf:
$59.99

Before we go any further, check that price again — $59.99. No we didn’t leave off the “1” — these are name-brand golf shoes, for under $60.

A combination mesh and synthetic upper gives flexibility and breathability, while the adiWEAR outsole with TRAXION provides stability, and the […]

Odyssey O-Works WBW Putters

Puetz Golf Price: $219.99

Golfers like Odyssey’s new O-Works putters. No, we mean they really like them.

The new putters, which we wrote about in April, feature a metal “Microhinge” insert that performs like Odyssey’s industry-changing “White Hot” insert, but with a more pleasing sound and feel. That’s what’s made O-Works popular not only with […]
