TaylorMade made in China

69 posts in this topic

My clubs say shaft and head made in China AND assembled in China; is it just me or is that just sad? Where are other clubs made? Are there American manufacturers or any clubs from Great Britain? I think a company should be more than just Engineering and Marketing.

Ping still owns their own foundry but I am sure their woods are made in China.
Most big names are all made over seas.

Only Pings still made in America are the Karsten and i-series putters. No large manufacturer of clubs still makes them here.

Ummm... i hate to break it to ya but if it isn't made in China, it's made in Mexico. We don't make ANYTHING here anymore. Hmmm....maybe that's why there's no jobs????

Mizuno irons are made in Japan which still isn't the US but it is a lot better than being made in China!

Nike clubs are made in china and I can tell you my hybrids are HIGH HIGH quality. the irons are good quality but I don't like them very much. I lost 25 yards on my game from them.

My PING G5i putter is all made in the USA. Other than that, everything else is made in China.
My Cleveland HiBore XLS had a sticker on the shaft saying "Head made in China, Shaft made in USA, Assembled in USA"
I've seen a friend's X-22s, they have a sticker on them saying "Assembled in China".
As someone before me said, the only irons not made in China right now are Mizunos. They're forged in Japan and assembled in the US.

Isn't Mizuno a Japanese company so it is okay that they are made in Japan

Bettinardi putter, made in the USA. Various vintage Ping putters, made in the USA. Two sets of Mizuno irons, made in Japan. Yonex driver that I replaced this year, made in Japan. My MacGregor irons, hand-forged in Japan. lol

From Back to the Future III:
Young Doc: No wonder this circuit failed. It says "Made in Japan".
Marty McFly: What do you mean, Doc? All the best stuff is made in Japan.
Young Doc: Unbelievable.

There's no question that the best forgings are currently produced in Japan. Sadly, they used to come from Tennessee.

In the opinion of many, Tour Edge equipment is not considered crazy expensive.

75-85%(guesstimate) of all golf equipment has Chinese fingerprints on it.Only thing I question is the "Assembled in China". The Taylormade stuff I have had and have now was made in China, but assembled in the USA, what club is it? That sounds fishy to me.

    • GPS, WHY ?
      You still need a baseline average of your typical distances to go by, and GPS helps you learn your yardages so you know what club to pull in the first place. You "guess" at all of these already. GPS just gives you an accurate starting point to work from. How can you know for sure that you didn't pull the wrong club? This is probably the most important point: distances markers on golf courses aren't always accurate and even if they are, they only give you the distance to the center of the green. They don't tell you how deep or wide the green is, what distance you need to avoid hazards, etc. They also don't help you off the tee, either.
    • GPS, WHY ?
      If you have a cell phone odds are that you already have a gps device. All you need do is download an app, some are free, and you now have a gps for golf
    • GPS, WHY ?
      If knowing the distance isn't important to you, then why would you ever choose an 8 iron for a shot instead of a 7 iron? But, if all the courses you play have plenty of easy to locate distance markers, then you probably don't need to spend a fortune on a range finder. Here's a free one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mozosoft.rangefinder&hl=en
    • GPS, WHY ?
      As of late I have played with a few people using some sort of GPS device, which in turn  made me envious, and I have therefore been looking on the internet with a view to buying one. Then I stopped and thought, WHAT DO I NEED IT FOR. Firstly, I am not a great golfer, and the length I can hit a ball with a club varies a lot based on how well I make contact. Secondly, what if it is windy, what if it is cold, what if it is wet, and finally, what if I am hitting a ball uphill or downhill. All a GPS would help me do is estimate what club I need on a dry day, with no wind, and on a flat plain. Of course, I and can take these factors into account, in which case I would be guessing again, and then I may as well not have one anyway. Like most people, I quite often hit over the green, or leave it short, but to be honest that has more to do with my golfing skills rather than the wrong club. All courses in the UK have distance markers, and to be honest you have to be pretty stupid not to be able to work things out from there.  Needless to say, some of you would have already spent a fortune on such a device, and will reply to this post telling me how wonderful they are. So, please go ahead and convince me !!
