Nike Machspeed v. Hireko v. GigaGolf

7 posts in this topic

HI All:

I'm new here but have been reading for a while.  I appreciate everyone's comments on here and they've been very helpful at narrowing down my choices.  I've played a decent amount of golf and I usually shoot between 100 and 110.  I'm very eager to learn and am looking to buy my first set of new clubs.

So I think I'm down to choosing between 3 different sets:

1.  Nike Machspeed X  for $249  http://www.rockbottomgolf.com/nike-golf-2012-machspeed-x-irons.html

2.  Hireko Custom - I can build a set of the XK Irons 4 through AW with upgraded shafts (Appollo acculite 85)  and golf pride grips for around $250.

3.  Gigagolf Custom - I can build a set of their PowerMax GX922 irons 4 through AW with the standard True Temper shafts and upgraded golf pride grips for around $190.

Any thoughts on which one I should go for?

Thanks!

You could find out if you can return them if you're not satisfied. If you can't try them out, the Machspeed would have the best resale value (even though they are 3 year old clubs).

They're all pretty close in price and should play reasonably well.  I've been playing GX922s since I started golfing 3 yrs ago and have no issues.  I expect that I'll play them next year as well.  If you anticipate constantly buying and selling golf equipment, then resale value may be a factor.

Thanks, Topper!  I appreciate the feedback.  I anticipate using these clubs for 4 or 5 years, so I don't really care how much resale I get out of them.  I'll probably just end up giving them away.

Have the hireko clubs, and they are all excellent.  The biggest factor is getting the right shaft flex, lenght, lie for you.

I have a combo set of Acer XF/XF-HT Irons with Rifle 5.5 shafts if you are interested. 5, 6 & 7 are the XF-HT and 8, 9 & PW are the XF. The have Black Widow corded grips on them. I also have a nice set of Snake Eyes 685OS with Apollo Spectre Lites shafts here in the Flea Market. Either set can be had for $100 or less. I have spine aligned both sets of shafts. I also have a set of GigaGolf Ozzy Z4 irons, 4-GW with their True Temper Featherlite shafts here. PM or email me if you are interested.
