Ball retrievers: Here's a new one!

Golfers with a ball-retriever as part of the armoury of equipment they carry in their golf bag have always, somewhat unkindly, been a figment of fun and the butt-end of jokes.

For example: "Jim used to have a ball retriever but the grip wore out!"

However, today, in these times of financial hardship and tightening of belts, maybe the ball-retriever carriers are the ones, we should nod in approval to, as they recover and re-cycle golf balls many of us might have previously abandonned.

Certainly the top golf cleat brand of PrideSports, has recognised an opportunity in the market by unveiling the Black Widow ball-retriever, featuring a telescopic 12ft pole on the end of which is a unique 8-leg design that securely grabs golf balls from a multitude of locations around a golf course.

It's priced at £14.99 but comes with a protective headcover, is made of high quality materials and can quickly pay for itself in recovered golf balls.
