I’ve reviewed over 100 golf products. Here are the ones I ACTUALLY use.
Over the years I’ve reviewed dozens of golf products on this blog. Some of them are fantastic, and others, well, not so much.
But even great products don’t necessarily find their way into my day to day rotation of clothes, equipment, tech and accessories.
I’m often asked the question “what’s the best this, or what’s the best that?” And frankly, my best indicator for that is do I still use it?
So in today’s post I wanted to share the products that I’ve continued to use long after reviewing them. In many cases there are still a ton of great options of competitors out there, but these are the things that have found their way into my regular rotation.
This isn’t to say there aren’t other products I use, especially when it comes to apparel and footwear. But the ones I mention below are the mainstays.

Holderness and Bourne Maxwell Polo
The Maxwell from Holderness and Bourne is my favorite polo. There, I said it. There are a ton of other great polos out there that I wear and love, but I wear this polo for over half of my rounds. I have it in 4 different color ways (at least), and I love the style, fit, and breathability of it.
I use the Arccos Caddie grips on my clubs, and swear by them. It can take a few rounds to get used to using the app, but once you do the data it gives you is second to none.
To be able to go back and review every round I play, every shot I hit, and get Tour level statistics and feedback?
Bushnell Pro XE
Quite simply this is the best range finder I’ve used.
Is it right for most people? Probably not. The Tour V5 is just as fast and a fraction of the price. And Precision Pro is has most of the features for even less. But I’ve had the Pro XE on my bag for over a year now, and love it just as much as I did when I first got it.
I love tech gadgets, but for as cool as so many high tech practice aids are, I rarely find myself going back to use them.
The Mevo is different. I only got it a few weeks ago, but I’ve already been back out on the range with it multiple times. I trust the data more than some other devices in the same price range, it’s easy to use, and it’s incredibly portable and unobtrusive.
- My Flightscope Mevo Review
- Buy the Mevo (Get 10% off with the code “breakingeighty10”).
- NOTE: Pick one up by Nov. 15th to get an extra $15 off the Mevo for a total of a $65 discount. This is an awesome deal.
Vice Pro Plus Golf Balls
For me, the Vice Pro Plus hits all the right boxes. Performance is great, price is great, and they’re unique enough that I’m usually the only person in my group playing them.
I’m also always happy to be playing ProV1s as well, obviously they’re a fantastic ball. But when I’m spending my own money, I’m usually saving $20 or so a box and picking up the Vice Balls.
North Coast Golf Gloves
North Coast is a small company that does one thing really well: make fantastic golf gloves. They look good, feel good, are durable, and are reasonably priced.
They’ve become a favorite for members of the Eighty Club as well, and they’re definitely worth checking out and stocking up on.
Ecco Biom Hybrid 3
I’ve got many a pair of golf shoes, and use different shoes for different types of rounds. But the one I consistently return to for both comfort and durability are the Ecco Biom Hybrid 3s.
The previous generation were great as well, but they’ve improved upon them, and I still wear the same pair nearly 3 years after I first got them. Ecco shoes aren’t cheap, but if you’re looking to buy one pair of spikeless shoes, these would be the one to get.
Bushnell’s first foray into the bluetooth speaker market at first glance seems like an odd choice. But it works great, and if you’re someone who doesn’t want to use a rangefinder and always likes GPS distances then this is your dream product.
While I don’t usually use the GPS features, the sound quality is good and it just happens to be the one I’ve kept on my bag all summer. That said, the JBL Clip is cheaper, more portable, and also sounds great – so I could see myself switching back to that soon as well.
Redvanly is a golf brand that makes some awesome products. But the stuff of theirs I’m most enamored with? The lifestyle wear. As I write this I’m decked out in both their joggers and hoodie. It’s super comfortable, looks great, and I’m always getting asked what brand it is.
So looking for incredibly comfortable clothes that look more expensive than they cost? Check them out.
Jones Utlility Trooper
Jones makes some fantastic stuff, including their excellent Weekender duffel. I’ve had my Utility Trooper with me every round for the last year and a half, and it’s held up beautifully.
And the team over there is generous enough to let me win when they come to my home course, so gotta love that:
Ooler Sleep System
Seems like kind of weird thing to include on a golf blog, but when it comes to performing and recovery, we all know good sleep is one of, if not the most important things to consider.
I’ve used my Ooler for the last 5 months and I love it just as much as the day I got it. I sleep with it on low at 55 degrees, and it’s made a noticeable improvement in my sleep quality. And now that it’s getting colder here in Portland? My wife loves that she can make her side as hot as she wants.
- Check out our Ooler Review
- Buy the Ooler Sleep System. Use the code OOLER15 for 15% off, or Chilipad25 for 25% off the original Chilipad.
Seamus Head Covers
Last but certainly not least is Seamus Golf. I’m not sure there’s another company in golf that has come up with more cool designs over the last 5 years than Seamus. Whether it’s the Oakmont church pew bottle opener or the boomerang Presidents cup trophy, they’re known for quality.
I’ve used their head covers for the last 5 years, and now that I think about it, I’m overdue for some new ones. I also swear by their wooden bag tags for all of our Eighty Club member events.
So there you go, those are my favorite products. What are your favorite golf products that I should be sure to check out? Drop a comment and let me know!
