MagneCaddy may be the greatest invention in golf history!
Huh. I think they're overselling it. What do you think?
I can see something like this coming in handy for some golfers - older golfers, golfers with back pain. You screw a powerful magnet into the butt end of the grip of one of your clubs - putter, I'll guess - and then you can pick up other clubs on the ground.
How many clubs do you leave laying on the ground during a round of golf? Enough to pay $24.99 for the MagneCaddy? As I said, I can see it being useful for some golfers - but is it more useful than other grip-end attachments you can buy that let you grab the golf ball out of the hole without bending over?
Then there's the warning disclaimer that appears on the MagneCaddy website:
WARNING: This product contains a very powerful earth magnet. If you currently have a pacemaker, ICD, or metal components in your body do not use this product prior to consulting a physician. Keep unit away from all electronics and children under 3 years of age.
Yowzah! That's a powerful magnet. If you've tried one, or you buy one, let us know how it goes.
