If you had to have one brand of clubs in your bag.... - Page 2

post #19 of 76

I don't think its important at all to put together a set from just one company.  Having said that, the only non-Titleist clubs in my bag are an Odyssey putter and Cleveland wedge.  This wasn't due to anything besides liking the clubs more than the others I tested them against.

 

My irons and woods are slightly outdated at the moment.  I would imagine that pitting them against any new clubs, they would get beat my most of the brands out there.  However, when I do choose to buy clubs I always test out as many as I can and just go with what feels best.  So if you like the look of a club, go try it out and compare it to any others you think might compete.

Wishon. At least it'd all fit me. smile.png

I could probably throw together a decent head to toe bag from any company.

no reason for this unless your gettin a hook up. but if so i would go with either titleist or nike

Having done the one bag thing 3 or 4 times (except for putter), I wouldn't recommend it. I don't think it's smart for your game.

 

All the OEMs are very good, but I've always favored Ping, Mizuno, Titleist. It all depends on your game. 

 

At the same time, a one bag OEM is not recommended. Look at the pros -- when they're not sponsored, they play several different brands. Some have irons only contracts, or an 8 club contract ... Look at Luke Donald, he mixes it up - TM Driver and Fairway, Mizuno Hybrid, Irons, and Wedges, Odyssey Putter.

 

So mix it up, just like the pros.

 

It makes your bag more interesting, too.

That is a tough question and I have never done this.  But I think if I had to select a single manufacture I would select PING.  But at the moment I only own two PING clubs, a driver and putter and I am not currently using the putter.  But they seem to have good products for golfers of various skill levels so you could do well with their clubs.tumbleweed.gif

I would say TaylorMade for me. I haven't hit a club from them I haven't liked. That's probably why aside from my Scotty putter, the rest of my clubs are TM.

Well, 12/14 clubs in my bag are straight out of "The Oven."

 

Nike it is.

I would go with Titleist, even if it wasn't with all their new stuff. I'm still using a set of DCI 962 which are from the late 90's.....

 

But if you're talking about filling your bag with one brand, it's gotta be Titleist - FOR THE BALLS!!!!!

I would have to go with Callaway. Most but not all of my clubs are Callaway.

 

  • My TM Raylor would probably get replaced with an old Warbird 5W, reshafted with the Fuji E360. Warbird had a deep-draft sole similar to Raylor.
  • Would probably drop from 4 to 3 wedges, and put 4i back in bag. Wedges = Iron set  PW + {52* and 58*, either Jaws or recent X-Forged.} Callaway GWs have more bounce than I like; maybe a lesson would overcome the problem.
  • Putter: Would probably go with Odyssey Black Series #1 or White Hot Tour #1. Have tried both, and they felt quite similar to my Ping Pal (vintage 1970s).
  • Ball: Callaway Hot Bite.

 

Have considered recent Callaway stand bags as replacement for my current SunMountain. But if Cally doesn't sponsor me, I'd probably stick with SunM to be a contrarian.

Titleist.  I am one Scotty Cameron Squareback away from completion.  Just bought the 710CB irons today.  Dont think I can drop three hundy on a putter though, so it looks like my anser 2 will have to suffice.  Maybe I can put some sort of decal on it.

As much as I love Mizuno irons I'm not really carzy about their drivers, wedges or putters. So if I was going to have just one brand in my bag, which will never happen, I'd go for this years Nikies.

 

I have last years 420cc drivers and really like it; I have last years wedges and really like them; this year I bought the full cavity back 2i (which I think is just phenominal), I just bought a pair of Niki Bandons, hell I'm damn near a waking Niki advertisment already!

"Nikies"?.  IS that a Hireko brand?

 

I've been trying for a couple years to find wedges that could bounce my 1994 Mizuno Pros out of the bag. 588s are close. I've never tried the newest Mizunos which seem to get mixed reviews. Sort of like some of the newer Clevelands CGs. For every guy who likes them, 2 more guys (including me) don't.

I would go with Taylormade. I started out a few years ago with a budget set of Adams irons and an Adams driver. I bought 2 Adams hybrids to go along with that at the time too. So I guess at that point I was an Adams man :) But I could not hit that driver for anything. So I bought a TM Burner driver and seemed to hit it pretty good. In fact it became one of my best clubs, sadly I only use it 13-14 times a round. So this year when I was looking for a new, better set of irons I went with TM Burner Plus. Very happy with them after a few weeks. Still have the Adams hybrids in the bag. Not in any big hurry to replace them at the moment.

Same for me.  But thank goodness that is not a requirement to play golf!  IMHO, Taylormade makes the best woods, Mizuno the best irons, and Scotty Cameron the best putters, so I play them.

i'll second this.  been using the 770CFEs for the past four years and i've tried several different Wishon clubs and always had good results. 

All Wishon gets my vote.

Mizuno would be my first choice... Callaway would be my second.
