Stop Dropping Your Stick!
How many times have you balanced your cigar on something when you go to take your shot, only to find it on the ground when you return? Or better yet, that it has burned some part of your cart, bag, putter grip, and etc. after it decided to go rogue while you were away.
I suppose it’s just another on course hazard if you are smoking a cigar, but it’s damn irritating. Plus, whenever the cigar hits the grass, I always think that I’ve now added some awesome fertilizer and deer pee to my smoking experience.
Anyway, I want to share with you something that I came across on Amazon after a failed DIY holder project. Who knew that a powerful neodymium magnet wouldn’t stick at all to my aluminum-framed Clicgear. That’s right, everyone but me...
So while poking around, I came across the Cigar Minder cigar clip. Price seemed right, and it didn’t need magnets to hold so I took a chance. Why not? I’ve spent less on bottles of fancy beer that ended up getting poured out.
Serious Research Follows
Last weekend, I took the Cigar Minder to the course, fired up a stick, and did some research. Yep, golfing and smoking research. May have been a touch of drinking research there too. I am truly a review triple threat.
The Cigar Minder worked perfectly.
Seriously, the double-hinged design makes it easy to hold the cigar and also easy to hold onto the cart. I hooked it on both my pushcart and my friends riding cart. It clips just about anywhere, and stays on. I didn’t test it with full dickmode cart driving, so I don’t know if it will survive your 4x4 antics, but really, isn’t it time to grow up and be responsible?
The cart holding clip can open and hold the widest of bars, and the cigar holding clip can take reasonable to majestic ring sizes. Both holds are secure. Both clips are easy to open if you need to reposition on your cart, or remove the cigar for smoking.
Best part was, I never dropped the cigar on the ground, and I didn't accidentally set anything on fire. #lifegoals
I actually found it a bit easier just to keep the cigar in the Cigar Minder and then remove the clip from the cart for smoking. Think giant roach clip. Maybe not the most attractive smoking method, but damn easy, and sometimes that’s all that matters.
So I’d summarize the Cigar Minder Experience in three takes:
· It’s cheap.
· It works.
· It improves the cigar while golfing experience.
Personally, I’d recommend going with one of the bright color choices. That will help prevent you from leaving it in the power cart, or smashing it when you fold your pushcart. If you do forget it, or break it, remember that it was inexpensive.
It’s not made of titanium, and you are a big, strong, yet sometimes clumsy beast. The Cigar Minder could go Blackhawk Down on you. Buy another and move on. You’ve got the funds.
