It's golf gadget time. Here's an interesting concept for two hundred and fifty schmolies. But rest assured, this is going to pay for itself in lost golf balls. It's a radar detector for your balls.
The only catch is you have to use their special golf balls that are embedded with a chip. (One dozen golf balls come with it.) Although the golf balls are USGA-conforming, this a deal breaker for me. Plus, the balls are $40 a dozen for replacement. Of course, this begs the question: Why are they selling replacement golf balls for a system that is going to find your golf balls for you? Hmmmm. (Can't get one by me!)
I'm partial to using my Pro V1x, even though I do have trouble finding them in the long grass. Somebody needs to come up with a cream or oil that you can rub on your balls that will be detectable by a golf gadget. That guy is going to make some big bucks. (Plus, I could use it to find my darn car keys, and remote control, and my beer.)
I did find one good use for this product. I can't afford to go to the vet and get my dog, Penelope, set up with a microchip -- so I just covered one of these Radar Golf Balls with peanut butter and BAMM, I got a dog tracker! Oh by the way -- the range of this thing is only 10 to 12 feet, so you still need to keep an eye on your balls (or dog).
