They may be a good big box store set but all I have seen with them is hosel problems with the woods and hybrids. They have a short hosel with the ones I have seen/repaired. Shafts break, possibly due to a glue dam when manufactured. Poor swing is a factor as well. Why people do not take some lessons every year is beyond me. I don't give them so I have no dog is this hunt.   Most people have no idea what hits good or not for someone else so it's a hunt and peck to...
Both wrists are painful after the driving range or a game of golf. Right at the wrist where the thumb base is. Hurts too much to turn a door knob sometimes. Don't know what it might be, but I feel for you.
 I'm a fitter and I can assure you that the name brand you are hitting is the least important part of your golf game, without exception.Now if you are a touring Pro, PGA card holding club pro or employee, college golf team, etc then you may require something different, but even then it's mostly mental.For the vast majority of golfers (95%), the weekend warriors or hackers, it means nothing in reality to their game.First learn to put and pitch for free. Any and every golf...
You have not stated, exactly, what is included. The carts themselves are useless. The heads and other components, depending on what year they were produced are the only value and not a lot. I'm a fitter, FORE! Play Golf Smithing and I'd be interested in hearing and seeing what actually is included in each of the carts. Maybe even a link to your ebay store? Depending on what you are asking I may be interested. The new ones have come out and with @ 50 components cost @...
The way you will know is to take your 6 iron and go and hit a small bucket of balls. Write down every shots results (good/bad/ugly just be brutally honest). Take the 6 iron and this list of results to a fitter, have him check your swing speed, shaft and even more importantly than anyone thinks have him check your grip (not the way you hold the club, the actual grip on the shaft) too many golfers are not using the proper grip on their shafts. are too small, too hard, too...
I have a small mobile golf club fitting/build/repair business now for 10 years or so and my clientele are handicappers from 18 to 30 (and higher). I am no big name well known old school fitter. I am a data cruncher. I like to study/read/investigate a topic over it's entire life time to see what's really going on and then make my decision as to what I believe is real/unreal. I learn, I do not create theory's. And this ticks off a lot of people in the fitting business at...
I'm so old and beat up and broken at 63 I never thought I'd ever get a driver or fairway wood in my hand that I could hit worth a darn. Now mind you, I don't get more than 220/230 or so from the tee or out of the fairway with these old cobra baffler laminate woods. 230 is a really good drive for me with the 2 wood and 170 to 190 is a good strike for me with the 6 wood. I know I'm a short hitter. But every par 5 and every par 4 is actually within range if I do my job. I...
All depends on the ball being the same, the loft being the same, the shaft being fitted for your swing and the grip on the club fitting your hands. If all is equal, and you can swing the club properly you'll have just as good results with the persimmon as with the metal. Remember having it fitted to you is paramount. Anyone can pick up a golf club and duff it. You have to be properly fitted to convert the horsepower from your body to the transmission that is your shaft and...
Well this all may be true but the greats from the past, the 50's, 60's and 70's all used persimmon or laminate drivers/woods and they averaged 270 ish. Sure this is less than many of the golfers today but the ball it's self would make up a lot of the distance by it's self. Courses were not as long, they were 'tough'. Golf was not a long hitter wins and it's still not and never will be. Brandt Snedeker (spelling) played a round with old school clubs like these for a...
I have 3 herniated discs from 1981. L3 through the S1 I have a right knee that is bone to bone in the medial compartment due to a shredded meniscus. I have a slightly torn/stretched right shoulder rotator cuff. I almost quit this game. Got a kidney stone. Got klebsillia pneumonia back in February and didn't get rid of it till June-ish. Was peeing blood for 2 plus months. Anyway I can't swing a club like you are supposed to. My back and knee brace won't let me. But...
