Before I write another word, let me just make clear that this is NOT a "Clone Club vs. Name-brand club" thread. I've been reading some of the older threads and I know it's a sour subject. And since I'm new, I don't want to beat it into the ground further.
Basically, I just want to know about the quality of these clubs. For those who have actual experience with the brands in question, what can you tell me about the durability on these clubs? How long do they last? At these prices, 2-3 years out of these clubs would please me. I know the resale value is low with these clubs, but again, at these prices you're really not eating that much $$$.
I really can't find anything negative about these brands. Both GigaGolf and Pinemeadow have outstanding ratings at Bizrate. And Hireko had that writeup in Gold Digest. And I don't care what people think about the clubs in my bag. Not one bit. If these clubs are what they seem, I've found what I'm looking for.
Fellas, I'm on a budget. I work in radio, and once you get past the Howard Sterns and the Rush Limbaughs, radio pay sucks. I love radio, but I don't have a lot of money to spend. I've basically played with used name-brand clubs my whole life. I'm sick of it. I want some NEW clubs. And I really only play casually and for fun, and let's just say I have a high handicap. Spending $1000 on clubs would be stupid for me. I've read up on these brands, and they 'seem' legit. And fact, I bought a 9-iron from GigaGolf a few weeks ago just to try it out. I really like it. I'm just curious about the durability of the clubs.
Again, this is NOT a clone club vs. name-brand club thread. I'm just looking for more info on the brands in question.
