Coolest Golf Gear To Look Out For In 2024

The golf season is here, it’s time to get excited and get your golf gear in order

In January we visited the PGA Show in Orlando, the show gives an insight into the most innovative and exciting golf products. Over three days we visited as many stalls as we could to bring you the products we are most excited about in 2024.

Since then, we’ve done a little more digging around and are ready to share our thoughts on the coolest golf products coming out in 2024 that will truly help you play better golf and have more fun in your practice and play.

BAL.ON Pressure Sensors

When golf tech is done well it makes the game simpler and provides clear feedback to help you get better. For many years we’ve had some insight into loading patterns, weight transfer and balance from expensive force plates, but this has never been accessible to everyday coaches and players.

BAL.ON is a new insole swing analyser that gives you real-time feedback on how your pressure is distributed throughout your golf swing.

There have been attempts at this kind of device before, but the design of this is exciting for two reasons:

Firstly, the BAL.ON has 18 micro-thin sensors (9 under each foot), which is far superior to other attempts we have seen and gives i) more granular pressure patterns and ii) more robust spatial (location under the foot) and temporal (changes over time) data patterns.

Secondly, this is so easy to set up and use. Great tech should help you practice more effectively, not make the game more complicated.

We’re waiting to get our hands on this for some in-depth testing, but for players who want better feedback on their full-swing mechanics, short game and putting BAL.ON is a very exciting tool to keep your eye on.

Mizuno Pro Fli-Hi

Mizuno MP Fli Hi Pro

If you want a long iron replacement but are fed up with chunky hybrids that launch the ball with little control, then you should pencil in the Mizuno Pro Fli-Hi into your testing list.

The original Mizuno MP Fly-Hi 2 iron is still in my bag (10+ years old and looking a little worn), but it was a game-changer for me when it came out. This had far more forgiveness than a traditional long iron, but still offers the ability to hit it super low.

The new Pro Fli-Hi irons look amazing, feel amazing and take forgiveness to a whole new level. They can be added to the bottom of any iron set and are a great choice if you play golf in links conditions or want an option to contrast against high-launching hybrids and fairway woods.

Go test them out and get fitted, Mizuno has a wealth of options when it comes to shafts and specs, your goal is to ensure this club serves a useful purpose and fills a useful distance when it comes to gapping your golf bag.

I think I’ll be upgrading pretty soon.

PuttOut AirBreak Putting Mat

PuttOut have always produced some great gear, but this year they have excelled themselves. The AirBreak putting mat is going to be a really useful tool for golfers who are after the ultimate putting mat.

This mat has eight airbags placed under the mat allowing you to recreate a near-infinite variety of breaking putts. You might start with basic left and right-breaking putts but this setup allows you to get very creative and design putts that are straight and break late, or putts that break early and then straighten (something most golfers are very bad at judging).

You can even recreate uphill, downhill putts and add in double breaks.

To add more data to your putting practice, PuttOut have created a cool app that turns your phone into a slope reader, allowing you to better match what the ball does to the gradient slope you have set up.

This is bulkier than other putting greens and will come out at a higher price, but they offer a great advancement in putting practice.

Release date: Pre-order (special £249)

RRP: £299

Links Legend Members Stand Bag

Titleist Legend Golf Bags

Over the past few years, Vessel golf bags have been meeting a demand that few knew existed. Golfers appear to have a new desire for high-end, leather golf bags. This year Titleist have joined the game with their Links Legend Members Stand Bag.

These aren’t cheap and are likely to split opinion, with their minimalist, retro design but we are firm fans of this trend, particularly the Masters green.

Release date: Available now

RRP: £349

TecTecTec Team8 E Golf GPS Earbuds

This product is a little different, but we want to give it a shout out. TecTecTec have created some really cool rangefinders in the past at a great price. They’ve just come out with an interesting product for golfers who want distance data in an audio form.

I think the main value of these is intended for solo golfers who want to listen to music or podcasts, whilst being able to get distance information with a simple system. However, we know there are a large number of golfers who want distances but struggle with holding a rangefinder or seeing numbers on a GPS watch.

We think this system could be a really cool solution for both these sets of golfers.

The right earbud of the TEAM8 E is designed with intuitive touch controls:

  • A single tap gives you the distance to the front, center, and back of the green.
  • Two taps provide the distance to the nearest hazard.
  • A longer press allows you to measure your shot distance.

A full review of these will be coming to Golf Insider soon.

FlightScope Mevo +

You’re right, the FlightScope Mevo Plus is by no means new. However, they have just released a big software update that could see it make a jump forward in the mid-range launch monitor market.

The Flightscope Mevo Plus still stands as the most affordable option that offers accurate (accurate enough) data on both ball flight and club head parameters.

This new software update sees an overhaul to their UX and some new graphics that now display the ball trajectory and key variables in real-time on the screen.

We’re keen to re-test this against the top-of-the-range launch monitors to see if the new software upgrades have further improved the accuracy of the data against the likes of TrackMan 4 and GCQuad,

Release date: Available now

RRP: £2,100

Uneekor Eye Mini Launch Monitor

Uneekor Eye Mini Launch Monitor

The Uneekor Eye Mini is another ‘affordable’ launch monitor coming in at under $5,000. It promises to provide the speed and accuracy of top level launch monitors in a more affordable, more portable product.

It also requires much less space for an indoor simulator setup compared to the FlightScope Mevo Plus featured above.

It offers 18 ball and club parameters (carry distance, lateral error, ball speed, spin axis, side angle, club head speed, angle of attack, smash factor, club path). Sadly doesn’t offer strike location or club face angle, meaning it won’t be able to offer everything the TrackMan and GCQuad can.

Testing this at the show, it did seem impressive and has the ability to be integrated with many different pieces of tech, but we still need to get our hands on one for side-by-side testing with other similar options in its class to know if it really lives up to its promise.

Release date: Available now

RRP: $4,500

The Stack System & Bluetooth Radar

Stack System in box

The Stack System is the most effective product we’ve come across for increasing club head speed. The training programme they offer is very detailed and the product is really fun to use.

However, a key component in learning to swing faster is feedback, and this is where a speed radar comes in. Every time you swing the Stack, or your driver, you need feedback on your max club head speed.

Stack System Radar

In the past, the PRGR launch monitor was the best speed radar we found, but The Stack System has now released its very own speed radar with BlueTooth integration, meaning you can focus on swinging faster and let the app automatically log your data with every swing.

We’ll be covering more on speed training and the Stack System in the coming month as it is a great piece of equipment for those looking to increase club head speed.

Release date: Available now

RRP: Stack $349, Stack Radar TBC

Summary

There are thousands of great golf products on the market in 2024, here we’ve covered some of the more unique products we feel deserve an extra shout out. As always, we’ll do our best to test out as many products as we can, collect data and make sure you can get hold of the best golf gear to help you shoot lower scores and make the game of golf more fun.

Happy golfing – Will @ Golf Insider
