Cleaning up my clubs after Monday's round I noticed my ball retriever was missing. It immediately dawned on me where I left it . The course is 80 miles away and I doubt I'll be back to Bozeman before we head to AZ. The retriever was probably 25 years old; one with a metal basket on a hinge and a small stem that stakes the ball in the cup. It works great and I see they still make this style/design. Conservatively I'll bet it has harvested $1000+ in balls (if only all investments had such returns). This is the style I had. Wanting to get the latest and greatest on ball retriever technology and reviews, I naturally type in "Golf ball retrievers + My Golf Spy"... and voila! https://mygolfspy.com/best-ball-retrievers-of-2018/ Yes, I know, for some the mere mention of ball retriever makes them nauseous and break out in hives... so my apologies in advance . For those who bag and use them (who can withstand the scorn), what are your opinions/recommendations? I see the "Gotcha" won the day, but one of the guys I play with in Yuma has one of these and says he dosen't like it as much as the old style for two reasons; one being that if you miss the ball, it releases the inside loop and you have to pull out and reset, second that if balls are in muck, it isn't very good at extraction. The MGS review does not show pictures of all (15) products tested (or I'm missing it), so it hards to know which is which of those not making the top of the class. Thanks all!
I own the Search N Rescue ball retriever. Its a great retriever albeit expensive. The lever popped off the head of the retriever and I cannot find it. Because it is pressure fit, it did not break off rather just popped off. I tried to find a replacement part and cannot find who to contact or if I can even get a part. I would hate to replace the entire retriever because of one small part. Any ideas or help out there? Otherwise, beware of this retriever.
