Holiday Golf Gift Idea: Stogie Holder

The Stage V Clinger – Golf

Cigars and golf go together like peanut butter and jelly. One of the biggest challenges for the cigar smoking golfer is proper placement while hitting a shot or putting on the green. Golf course superintendents warn golfers not to lay cigars on the ground as the stogie will come into contact with hazardous pesticides and fertilizers. The Stage V Clinger solves the problem with a magnetic clip that holds your cigar while you golf.

The Stage V Clinger is a must own for the regular or occasion cigar smoker.

How To Use:
The Stage V Clinger is flexible and attaches easily to golf carts and bags and will keep lit cigars intact in a sophisticated way. The sleek design allows cigar smokers to attach the holder to any vehicle or vessel that a magnet can mount to or a Velcro strap can wrap around. The ribbed handle is easy to grip and the light pressure spring keeps cigars and cigarillos of any size in place without a pinch or tear to the cigar.

More Information:
Colors: Red, Orange, White, Blue

The cigar holder can be purchased as a single unit ($12.99) or as a pack of four ($44.99) through the Stage V Clinger website:
