Headcovers (Covers) For Irons - Page 10

post #163 of 253

Like the two above posts say, some manufacturers explicitly advise against iron covers. That said, I think they'd be a good idea if you're transporting them in a plane, or something like that. In that case you're mainly looking for ding protection, and there isn't a huge chance for moisture trapping. But for everyday play, I'd avoid them.

If you use iron covers, you won't get the nicks and scratches in the chrome that eventually lead to rusting when moisture is trapped in the iron cover. Is that irony or simply justification for self perpetuating gayness. Yeah, I said it.

Used the black neoprene slip on covers when I played forged. Simply wiped the iron off before putting the cover back on. But, here in Tucson, AZ the humidity hardly ever gets above 60%, and that is only during monsoon season. Rust isn't a real big issue here.

 

And they do a pretty good job of keeping your irons from looking like they hang out in the back of some rednecks pickup truck...  ;)

I used iron covers a couple of years, and live in a high humidity area. Always wiped the club after hitting it, never had issues with moisture getting trapped.

 

My recommendation on gloves are Gloveskin. I eventually got tired of the gloves and stopped using them. The chatter don't bother me, and I can't say my forged clubs looks bad because of dinging.

just dont cheap out on the ones you get. Dicks sporting goods sells the gloveskin ones and those are great, ive had them for about a year on my clubs. Clubs look brand new except for the face,

I'm in the minority in that I like using iron covers.  Have used the neoprene type on my Tour Burners since I got them in the spring of 08 and they still look great. If I happen to play under very wet conditions, I leave the covers off when I get home until they are dried.  I don't like the sound of irons clanking around either.  As far as contributing to slow play, that is complete nonsense.  It takes no time to pull a club, put cover in pocket, hit shot, wipe club and replace cover.

I use to use head covers for my irons also, they are a pain, ended up loosing a few of them over time. I bought a new bag this past year got the Bennington Quiet Organizer, no more head covers and no more chatter. Highly recommend the Bennington Quiet Organizer.

I don't like iron head covers but when I transport my irons in the car, or leave them at the rack at the course I use my towel to snake between the irons to prevent them from hitting each other.

Thanks to everyone who replied to my original question instead of trying to talk me out of iron covers.  I went with the Gloveskin and they work well.  Yes, their a pain in the azz, but better than getting bag wear on a brand new set of sticks.  I may have to try the Bennington Organizer when the covers get on my nerves too bad.

I have the Castle Bay neoprene style.  The stitching started coming loose and some holes wore through in the first season, (fat sole GI irons).  They look ratty but still do the job for transport.  If I were to buy some more I'd spend a few dollars more and get something more durable.

I have the Castle Bay soft plastic one piece slip ons on my old DCI's. I wipe the club after each shot and they are stainless, so no problems with rusting in 19 years and my DCI's look new. When I pull the club, I stick the cover in my hip pocket, after the shot I wipe the club and stick the cover on. If I am not driving, I may do this while riding to the next shot. It takes 5 seconds and does not slow down play. I understand your obsession and have a set of 30+ year old Wilson Staffs that would pass for at least a 2 year old set.

 

That said, my "new" walking set is pre nicked and I do not use iron head covers on them.  I must say I enjoy the freedom!

Turn out the lights, hand the fat lady the microphone, and pull all the pins--Sean has almost endorsed iron covers!  Say it isn't so!

I'll never use them myself (tried with my first full set - annoying, time consuming, and more than a little bit OCD) but I'm all for other guys using them for their new forged irons.

 

But it's a great surprise finding out irons you just bought off ebay are in better shape than they should be.

This is what I do when packing my clubs in the travel case for a plane journey. I also wrap a towel around the outsied of them for extra padding. Other than that my irons and wedges are "au naturelle"

iron headcovers?

hey guys. does anyone use iron headcovers? thanks

post #180 of 253

I have thought about it lately.  My old clubs (Callaway X-18's) seemed un-dentable.  My new irons are cast but "soft stainless steel" and seem to pick up small dents more easily.

 

My problem with iron covers are speed of play.
