Karsten Manufacturing, better known as PING, is the only major American made golf club manufacturer. To this day, they still are casting past iron models and manufacturing their steel shafts in the USA. Many of their new models have been outsourced overseas, but production continues in the states on past models. No companies forge their clubs in the USA anymore due to EPA regulations. The process is amazing, and the fact that they have hung on for so long speaks to their desired commitment to Made In the USA. Hopefully, with some help from external forces, PING can bring all of their irons back to being manufactured domestically. If you’re in the market for a new set of irons, look at their G5 range, and some of the G10s, as they were still being produced in America and are still being sold at retailers. This factory tour is of the assembly…Continue Reading

Nokona baseball gloves are one of the few glove companies that can say they are American Made. The Nokona Classic Walnut glove is offered in 11.5″, 12″ and 12.75″. I went with the 12.75″ since I’ll be using the glove for baseball and softball. I’m sure most that use the glove strictly for baseball would prefer the 11.5″ or 12″ glove. The fit is great, and when trying on several different gloves from multiple companies, it was clear the quality of leather used in the Nokonas is superior. The break-in time took a bit longer than cheaper gloves I’ve had, but that is expected. There are some extra holes drilled into the wrist closure, and I used them to re-lace the glove to be a snugger fit around my…Continue Reading
