Old technology was new when it came out and many people thought steel shafts weren't fair.
You will realise that the introduction of game improvement clubs has not actually improved the scoring recreational golfers at all. Handicaps of weekend players have not improved. Yes, these clubs are more forgiving and the metal woods go further, but that hasn't translated into an improvement in scoring. As you'll see on these boards, a lot of golfers are only concerned about trying to prove how long they hit it, blaming a shaft for their crap swing or wondering if a Scotty Cameron putter will improve their game. Do you think they want these treasures taken away from them?
Both points quoted for truth!
EVERYTHING old was new at one point. And one persons interpretation of old school will be completely different that another persons. Same with us gear heads and our hot rods. My old school is the late 60's/early 70's hot rods. To my Dad, building his "old school" Merc was a late 50's interpretation. My grandfather probably thought old school was a horse and a 4 seat buggy.
