Which is the best Rescue Club?

6 posts in this topic

I'm relatively new to the game but getting better (slowly). I recently borrowed a rescue wood from a friend and really enjoyed hitting it so figured i'd go out and buy one. (he has the TM Burner graphite stiff shaft)

Here's the question- which is the best/most forgiving rescue wood out there?

Due to excellent reviews I have been looking at the Cleveland Halo (22degree loft) which is also my budget option (as it's quite cheap since the hi-bore came out), or the Taylormade Rescue Burner (22 degree loft) as my option to match the rest of my bag (as i have an R7 425 and RAC HT irons).

Any views on these clubs or others that are better?

I have the Taylor 25 degree and really like it. Easy to swing with solid contact. Tried the Halo and did not like it even though I had a Cleveland driver. It seemed a bit awkward for me. Swing did not feel right and I could never get that solid hit feel..

I've played both and I personally wasn't a huge fan of the Halo...I just didn't ever hit a shot that I thought was just great, but my friend has one and loves his...on the other hand I loved the burner hybrid. It's depends more on what you think than anything though, opinions tend to vary between different golfers. I would recommend demoing them at a golf store or at a course so see which you prefer before you buy one. Especially since the burner is about twice the price of a halo.

I have the HALO's in 2i and 4i and love them, just swing it like a regular iron and your set, good off the tee too, 2i goes about 220m ... by the way does anyone know how to set up the whats in my bag signature with the brand pics, they are cool.

I was thinking of demoing them but nowhere seems to stock the Halo as it's now the Hi-bore (i think). As you say they're half the price so i could get two different lofts instead of the burner - but should i? Or should i just go for one burner- is there a difference in performance/forgiveness?

having looked at this a little more i am now thinking of going for the Cobra Baffler DWS-08. Slightly cheaper than the Burner but more than the Halo's. Luckily i have a registered fitter near-by so i'm going to get myself down there. Have never been fitted for a club before so i'm expecting big results!! :)

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
