Mullybox Monthly Gift Box

Monthly gift box subscriptions are very popular right now.  In my monthly sub I’d much rather have cool golf stuff than an overpriced razor blade.  That’s where Mullybox comes in.

Oh goodie!

A Mullybox subscription runs $29/month and includes a minimum of $60 worth of golf goodies delivered right to your doorstep, as you can see above.

Goodies Inside

Inside a Mullybox are golf treasures, from golf balls to towels to tees to game tracking devices.  Every month it is a new and exciting mystery combination.  It’s fun to open her up and see what’s inside!

The take this month (above) is half a dozen premium golf balls, a casino chip ball marker, some golf tees, a Frogg Togg chili pad cooling towel, and an Arccos Driver tracking system.  Woot!  Perfect timing for me.  It’s darn hot here right now and the chili pad is going to come in very handy.

Here’s another look below.

Final Thoughts

Ditch the Dollar Shave Club or whatever other lame monthly subscription you have, or are giving as a gift. Replace that razor with some premium golf accessories from Mullybox!  Guaranteed winner.


Father’s Day Golf Gift Ideas Over $50

Now it is really crunch time.  You have just this week to get your golfing dad a Father’s Day gift. Since you waited this long, you might as well shell out some real dough for a super-nice gift.  This list is for you.  Get out your American Express Gold Card.  Here we go.

Bushnell Phantom Golf GPS Rangefinder – $99

Phantom showing yardages to center, front, back.

I’m still in the midst of reviewing the Bushnell Phantom golf GPS, but I can safely, and highly recommend it.  I’ve been gaming it for a couple of weeks now and love how quick and accurate it is. I also love keeping it in my pocket so I can grab front/back/center yardages from anywhere.  Stay tuned for my full review soon.

Tommy Armour TA1 Adjustable Driver – $299

You can find the Tommy Armour TA1 driver at Dick’s Sporting Goods.  This is a great adjustable driver for golfers who need forgiveness.  The driver comes in a very nice wooden box too, great Father’s Day package. Like the Bushnell GPS above, I’m early in the review period.  Stay tuned for more.

Cobra King F8 Driver – $399

I’m in the review/testing phase right now on the King F8 driver from Cobra. I’ve been gaming this driver now for a few weeks.  Starting to really like it. The face is the first ever milled face on a driver, and the adjustability is enough to make even the most obsessive compulsive golfer satisfied.

Shotscope V2 GPS Watch with Automated Performance Tracking

It is highly likely that the Shotscope V2 will win the Hooked on Golf Blog 2018 golf accessory of the year award. With this watch you can not only get yardages, but track every shot and view detailed statistics on every club, every hole, every round played on your mobile device or computer.  It is awesome.  Check out the Hooked on Golf Blog Shotscope V2 GPS Watch review for more.

Puma PWRADAPT DISC Golf Shoes – $150

Very cool treads from Puma.  These might be the most comfortable golf shoes ever made.  The “DISC” name comes from the disc which tightens the laces. It is a very cool system. Check out the Hooked on Golf Blog Puma PWRADAPT DISC Golf Shoe review for more.

Chase54 Trekker Golf Shorts and Frequency Polo – $79 & $73

My first Chase54 apparel review left me quite impressed with the quality, style, comfort and performance of the Trekker golf shorts and Frequency polo.  Highly recommended.

New Level 1031 Forged Irons – $1393.00

Do you REALLY love dad, and have a lot of money? Then I suggest picking him up a set of New Level forged irons.  I’ve just started testing the 1031 model, and they’re impressively long and accurate while being easy to hit.  It’s kind of like cheating.

It’s time for the long awaited Hooked on Golf Blog Father’s Day gift guides!  This year I’m going to break the guides into two categories, golf gifts under $50 and golf gifts over $50.  Let’s roll on the under $50. To get more details about the product, click the bold/blue heading.

Aris Urethane Covered Golf Balls $24-$28

These balls are roughly half the cost of Titleist ProV1’s, but employ similar materials and provide similar performance.

Zero Friction Supertubes

Fun packaging. Comes with golf balls, tees, and a golf glove!

MyCharge AdventureMax Portable Charger  – $49

Dad has a cell phone, golf GPS and probably other devices he needs to charge. This is a rugged portable USB charger capable of keeping dad’s batteries topped off.

Grip Boost Grip Enhancement Products $9-$15

If your hands slip, you need a better grip! Get a grip with Grip Boost.

Nicklaus Staydri Polo $24.99 – Nicklaus golf shorts – $29.99

I wore this outfit yesterday. It’s a great summer setup with light fabric which is comfortable and wicks moisture from the body.

Wallaroo Shelton Sun Protection Hat – $48

Summer is here. Keep dad protected from the sun with this comfortable had from Wallaroo hats.

Golf Jet – Monthly subscription from $37

Golf Jet - Jet Pack

Golf Jet – Jet Pack

This is slick, a monthly subscription to Golf Jet which includes high quality golf balls, tees, glove and more.

Wilson DUO Soft Golf Balls

Soft golf balls are the rage right now.  Wilson has the softest golf ball on the planet in the DUO Soft.  Soft golf balls are easier to compress for golfers with slow swing speeds.


Zero Friction Supertubes and Spectra Golf Ball 4-pack

Did you know Zero Friction makes golf products other than their Zero Friction golf tees?

Below is one of the Zero Friction Supertubes. This is a very cool package with three golf balls, a hand full of matching Zero Friction tees, and a glove.

Another golf ball offering from Zero Friction is the Spectra golf ball.  It is a two-piece distance ball which comes in six cool colors.  They make a 4-pack which also includes a ZFTMAXX tee.  Below is the matte white version, which has a very interesting look.

These fun golf packs make some interesting golf gift ideas for Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, birthdays, Christmas and so on.


Think Inside the Box – Monthly Golf Goodie Subscription from iGC Box

Dollar Shave Club, Harry’s, Birch Box, Trunk Club, Lootcrate… the monthly goodie box for men concept is pretty hot right now.  But why get overpriced razors every month when you could get something really fun and useful, like golf balls and accessories?  That’s where iGC Box comes in.  Let’s take a look inside the box.

iGC Box

Inside my iGC Box are some nice golf goodies.  See below.

First and foremost is a half dozen high quality, urethane covered 3-piece balls.  That’s the same recipe one would find in “Tour” quality golf balls which can run $50-$60/dozen. I have NO desire to get a monthly subscription if the balls inside are “RockFlite” quality. The balls come inside a useful accessory bag which is great for the other small golf items one loses inside a big golf bag.

Along with the balls my box had some nice, long plastic tees.  I tee it high, so these are perfect for me.  Plus they’re much more durable than wood tees.

A nice full leather golf glove comes in iGC box, as well as an iGC ball marker.  Can’t have too many ball markers.  Most golfers have about 500 in their bags…

Last but certainly not least is a terrific little club brush, which is not even the size of a box of Tic-Tacs. There are three retractable parts: a metal brush, a plastic brush, and a pointed plastic groove cleaner.  This accessory is worth a month’s subscription price on its own. It’s so small it can live in the golfer’s pocket, ready for use whenever a quick club or groove cleaning is needed.  Clubs work their best when they’re clean and the grooves are not full of debris.

Subscriptions

There are two subscriptions available from iGC, year-round and seasonal.  Both subs are $19 and delivered monthly.  The yearly obviously comes every month through the year, while the seasonal is monthly between the months March through September.

Semi-Final Thoughts

I say “semi-final thoughts” because I’ll be covering another iGC box soon, which offers some other goodies, to give you the idea of the variance.

Think inside the box. iGC Box. With an iGC box landing on your doorstep every month you’ll have a solid pipeline of the most used and highest wear-and-tear items in your golf arsenal, balls, gloves and tees.
