Holiday Gift Guide Day 12 - Chicken Stick Review and Giveaway

I don't know about you, but I love playing golf. I'm terrible at it and I'm not sure there's a more frustrating game out there, but I love playing. I've always known that with my choice of profession, I'd never have the time or money to become a great or even passable golfer. Then along comes the Nintendo Wii and all of a sudden not only can I play golf any time I want, but I can even pretend that I'm good at it.


Now the simulation has gotten even better. The good folks at BadChicken have created the Chicken Stick 



It is basically a golf club used with the Wii Remote to make playing golf games more realistic.

When you put the remote in it really feels like you're holding a real golf club. The club features
  • Genuine True Temper® shafts 
  • Authentic Golf Pride® grips  
  • Substantial weighted feel
The Chicken Stick does require the Wii Motion Plus Controller to work, but it's fully compatible with Tiger Woods PGA Tour and all other Wii Motion Plus golf games that use the B button.

Overall, it really does help with making the golf games feel real, and forces you to get out of your seat to play.   But I do have one word of caution - Make sure that you've got plenty of room when you play.

To Buy It - The chicken stick retails at $40.00 or you can get a Double Bogey Set for $75(plus free shipping)!

To Win It -
BadChicken is giving away 2 Chicken Sticks!
