I don't mind the noise, but when I walk I rest my arm on the top of my bag and my hand stops the clinking. I'm fairly sure that pros and caddies know whats best for their equipment. I really wouldn't want to deal with pulling it off, keeping it somewhere, putting it on, especially with the pros that pull 3 irons before they make their final selection.
But you're not a pro.
Do you imply that iron covers damage the irons?

The pros break a club if they have to in order to take a difficult shot, since you do what the pros do, I expect this is something you also consider?

No, that is not even close to what I meant. I don't like the hassle. The pros would use them if they needed to but obviously don't.

Who in here has said they need them for the performance? It has been stated so many times now why people use iron covers, I don't see the reason for finding arguments against them.

I'm not talking about performance. I'm talking about club care. I don't care if people use them, their choice. I don't because I don't like the hassle, stop trying to read into something that isn't there.

I like people to call me a dweeb......

 

Seriously, a friend of mine and myself bought our MP-14 together. He did not use one whereas I did.

 

After a few years, his looked pretty trash, mine, to this day, still in excellent + condition.

If you're going to be a dweeb and use iron covers, at least only be a semi-dweeb. Take them off as you take your clubs out of the trunk of your car, and only put them back on after your clubs are clean and the heads are dry -- a wet club inside a head cover causes rust.

 

If you insist on using them, dweeb, don't replace them during a round -- as stated above, dirt and moisture with an iron cover will cause rusting... clean and dry the clubs, then replace with the cover.

In my life experience the people who judge everything everyone else does usually have self confidence issues. This is true in all aspects of everyday life. This thread was 5 minutes of my life I'll never get back. Who really cares what people do or don't do with their clubs. It's their property. If something is goofy or dweeb like is all a matter of perception anyway.

I find driver, wood, hybrid, and putter covers a PITA...why in the world would I want them on my irons?  Besides, at my level of golf it is impossible to tell if the nicks on my clubs are from rattling around in the bag or me mishitting.

You chose to open the thread. But perhaps something was learned. I took the initial use of "dweeb" to be lighthearted. I've seen worse in other forums when it comes to this subject ... much worse.

Now y'all have done it. I ordered a set on Amazon as I am about to take on some Miura PP-9003. Already have the wedges and have a cart partner who is absolutely insane when he drives his street legal golf cart. The clanking is too much for my golf ho'in soul.

Who ever broke out the "dweeb" label nailed it.   I've never seen a legit amateur player -- someone who pays for their equipment -- use them.    Sometimes we forget what we put our irons through.   Hitting out of waste areas, hard pan lies, or off range mats that are comparable to cement.   Irons are pretty durable, the last thing you need to be concerned about is them knocking into each other in the bag.   Got hooked up with some random golfer not to long ago and he sported iron covers.  Most of our betting that day revolved around what kind of dingbat we were dealing with.  Sure enough, he loses an iron cover on one holes, has to go back.   Next, he plays my ball.   Attempts to fix a divot, turns it into a crater.  So not to typecast or anything, but if you walk to the first tee with iron covers, expect that your playing partners are making fun of you behind your back.    Might as well just wear a "Kick Me" sign.

RE: the thread title

 

- Professionals get their gear for free and a lot of them acually like nicked up irons. It's like getting a few door dings on a new car. Soon enough you can park within walking distance to the grocery store because one more ding really doesn't matter.

 

- Sponsors like clubs to be seen - unless your sponsor is Club Glove or something.

 

- Caddies don't care for them

 

For the average Joe?

 

All I can say is, GO FOR IT!!

lot's of dweeb hating here =p

 

Just curious, how many of the non-dweebers have actually tried a pair of covers before dismissing them?  Even if you do not see the merit or need, others may have their reasons...

It's your setup. If they look good to you that's all that counts!!

They are a PITA.

 

Not needed if you walk.

 

When riding, if you take them off before a round, or most of them, so you don't get clanking, and leave them off as you use that iron, then clean the club, dry and replace after the round, their PITA factor is minimized.

Iron covers are great for travel. Keep a set for that use. When I ride (most of the time) I find my cart bag is big enough to keep irons from banging into each other. Always cover my woods and putter.

Hate 'em.  Their kinda like ball retrievers, usually left for hacks.  Sorry to offend anyone, but thats just always been my opinion.
