CALLAWAY – ROGUE ST IRONS Sure, golf clubs aren’t tech as we traditionally conceive of it, but they are highly technical bits of kit. Callaway, one of the leading names in golf clubs, have launched their newest line of Irons in the Rogue collection. It’s the first time they’ve combined high strength 450 steel with their A.I. designed flash face cup in addition to precision tungsten weighting. Plus, these are their longest irons ever. The culmination of these innovations is superior spin control and optimised launch. Individual irons from £121, sets from £849, available at callawaygolf.com

Basis Audio – A.J. Conti Transcendence Basis Audio claim the title for producing the most precise turntables in the world. A bold claim to be sure but one that they are willing to back up. In that endeavour, the A.J. Conti Transcendence is one of their highest spec turntables. It has a wow and flutter of .01 making one of the most stable turntables on the market at high speeds and that market leading capability is also true of its speed drift, rumble and isolation.
