Snell MTB-X joins MTB golf ball lineup; all MTB balls now available in Optic Yellow

Published

on

Snell-MTB-X

Snell Golf has unveiled its latest model of golf ball – the MTB-X, with the company additionally now offering all MTB golf ball models in Optic Yellow.

The Snell MTB-X is the successor to the company’s MTB Red ball, and its two new models consists of the MTB Black and MTB-X. The MTB Black is designed for players who seek a softer feel, with the ball aiming to provide players with a medium level of iron spin. The MTB-X, on the other hand, looks to offer players both a firmer feel and higher iron spin. Both of the new models are designed for low driver spin to provide players with maximum distance off the tee.

The new addition from Snell is offered in a one dozen “MTB Test Pack,” featuring two sleeves of each MTB model and a fitting guide to help players choose which ball works best for their game.

Speaking on the new addition, Dean Snell, owner and CEO of Snell stated

“In 2018, customer feedback of our MTB RED model led us to a new design target. We felt we could provide high spin for approach shots while lowering driver spin and maximizing distance off the tee. The new MTB-X model has accomplished both of those goals and has added the elite feel & durability of a cast urethane cover.

“Players who enjoyed the MTB RED model will find MTB-X to be very long, extremely durable, and offer improved aerodynamics for strong performance in windy conditions.”

The company are now also providing every MTB model in Optic Yellow.

The MTB-X is available to pre-order now from SnellGolf.com, with shipments scheduled for early April. Pricing for the MTB models starts at $32.99 for a dozen, with the price being reduced to $27.99/dz should you order five dozen.

Accessory Reviews

WRX Spotlight: AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones

Published

on

AfterShokz Trekz Air Wireless Open Ear Headphones

Honestly, this is not a review we intended on doing. Wireless headphones were not on our radar for 2019, and certainly not on our list of “golf essential” equipment. But an ad for Aftershokz headphones caught our eye. Sleek. Lightweight and “Open Ear”? We needed to check them out in person. With that, here we are.

Product: AfterShokz Trekz Air wireless open air headphones

Basically, this is a wireless headset with bluetooth connectivity with and open ear design. You can still hear your music AND the world around you at the same time. It’s a bit of genius. If you like sports but are one of those “one earbud in, one out so you can hear your surroundings” people, AfterShokz is marketing to you.

Pitch: From AfterShokz: “The next generation of bone conduction technology is what’s inside our lightest and most organically designed open ear headphones to date. We cut the bulk and used titanium everywhere possible to ensure they not only fit more securely but sound better too. Trekz Air are inspired by the demands of elite and aspiring athletes motivated by their music and their world.”

Our take on the AfterShokz Trekz

While the AfterShokz Trekz Air are not golf specific, they are a nearly perfect accessory for your range practice time. They are comfortable, sweat and water resistant and have very good sound. The open air nature is a huge plus, so you can still hear the world around you while listening to music, a recorded lesson, or a golf tempo trainer. Aftershokz claims up to a 6-hours of continuous use on a single charge. We found that to be fairly accurate.

While the $149 price point is not small change, these are not golf specific and can be worn daily. We found them to be plenty comfortable jogging, biking and just running errands. Some reviewers on the internet claim they weren’t as comfortable on the ears over a long period of time, but we didn’t experience it. We were able to wear them comfortably for extended periods with and without glasses or with or without a hat or helmet.

Very impressed.

One criticism is we felt the mic functionality was a little spotty. The users on the other end had some difficulty hearing us on the phone. It works in a pinch, but for longer conversations, we thought it was just easier to disconnect the device and put the phone to our ear.

While AfterShokz Trekz Air wireless headphones won’t make your golf game better, their one of our favorite golf accessories of 2019 so far.
