sgi wont help.
  That club was an exception. Before the 975D, the average rack price on a driver was less than $199. Then all companies followed the 975D and jumped to $399. This is about the time when all the clubs started getting manufactured in china, lowering production cost. Then the high performance shafts started taking off raising the prices yet again. Only now with the economy in the tank, prices are coming back down to earth. But not only did equipment cost go up, green fees...
you can have ball flight software and everything else TV brings to the game. but if golf equipment keeps moving forward in this fashion, there seems to be 2 directions for it to go: 1, golf courses continue to grow bigger to accommodate the pros adding more cost and difficulty to the game for amateurs or 2, pros will be carrying a driver, 3 wood, hybrid, 10 wedges, and a putter in their bag. in the eyes of a big OEM, there's only one way to move forward and that's with...
Watching golf is far less interesting today. Its target golf. The creativity has been erased. Its dumbed down. Techology should make the game more affordable, not necessarily easier. Hickory shafts aren't that much different than steel. Steel by and large is cheaper to produce. And its easier to produce a uniform set. Same with metal heads. But performance only improved fractionally with these 2 advancements. We can see were the game is headed. If you can't, you're blind....
Technology is ruining the game. Its making the game too easy for Pros and harder for amateurs. You may think I'm crazy for saying technology is making it harder for amateurs, but it is. Clubs are becoming too long and too lite all in the name of making money when the truth is people are spraying the ball everywhere. And its really hard, not to mention expensive, for beginners. Do people realize the stupidity of all this... we produce clubs that increase distance, and...

Swung the Mizuno shaft optimizer. 88 mph and 9 tempo. I liked the results: DG x100 soft step (130g), PX 6.0 (120g), KBS C-taper stiff (120g). Now, can anyone make a recommendation for a driver shaft based on the recommended iron shafts. If so, I would also like to mention I will be playing a 44.5 - 44 inch driver. Most heads are weighted to accommodate an overall length of 45" or more, so i would likely have to add a little weight. I would like to avoid paying to get fit...
I'm a big fan of companies that don't produce clubs for the masses.
Rip 60 has good stuff for your golf swing and body. Every piece of equipment sold comes with a 60 workout program. And most of it focuses on core and rotation.
sounds like people are starting to realize they're being had by the big OEMs and the golf industry in general. is the new equipment really helping your game that much? OMG, taylormade put a racing stripe on their new driver, i gotta have it. so dumb. is it really worth the price? i find it hard to beleive that all this new equipment is lowering your handicap that much. i would be happy with persimmon drivers and balata balls. seriosly, all this new equipment is just...
