It has got to be Tour Edge... any company that can put a lifetime warranty on their clubs must make them pretty darn well.

You are going to get a variety of responses to this as the question is impossible to answer because there is no correct answer.

Here are my opinions though.
Drivers: Titleist (both long and durable)
Irons: Mizuno (mmmm.. butter)
Wedges: Cleveland (they have been built on their wedge quality)
Putter: Scotty Cameron or Ping
Balls: Titleist Pro V1 series

Edit* Forgot Bags: PING BAGS!

I have watched a kid pick his up, throw it on the ground, and then drop kick it! The stand still worked and his clubs were just fine. --Now that's quality--

I would agree.

I don't know of any other brands that give that.

All of the large club makers and the top quality custom component companies are very good the biggest problem I see with the large makers is mass production. You know it's funny, based on how many clubs are avalible on ebay I would say most people would be better served investing in professional fitting and custom made clubs. I think in the long run you would spend less and gain more.....bwgolfer

Lets be honest, all the top brands are pretty dam good, none are head and shoulders above the rest, tbh.

Agreed, although some makers are a little more consistent on cosmetic issues and getting lofts and lies exactly right. Basic quaility durability is the best it has ever been.

For Irons....Ben Hogan. Bring any for spec inspection and you will find the lie and loft are absolutely true to specs. Finish...hard to beat that forged mirror finish and fit.

Woods...I would say Titleist.

Wedges....Callaway wedges. Heck...Roger Cleveland is overseeing the wedge operations since he sold his company off. Hard to beat forged wedges. Non forged...probably a tie between Cleveland and Vokeys.

Putters.... Scotty and Pings.

Bags.... Ogio.

I think this is a very subjective topic. It's like who makes the best quality car. You might argue BMW, but then Lexus has had less quality problems. Then the BMW owner would argue that Lexus (with the exception of the new LS430h) is not on par with the branding of BMW. Then I would argue that anything is better than Jaguar, and that's why I traded that damn Ford in...

Best Brand -- Woods, Irons, Wedges and Putters

 

post #12 of 21

Off the rack, it's going to be TM or Ping.  I voted for Ping, more options for custom fitting, quality control and durable stuff.

post #13 of 21

If I had my choice, I'd go either Titleist or TaylorMade... However, all of the major companies make good quality clubs and it'd be hard to go wrong with any of them.  What it comes down to more than anything is style and personal preference.

Well, this is really like asking one which fruit is the best overall, apple or pear. Choosing golf clubs is really a matter of personal preference. So, different people will have different opinions on what brand of golf clubs is the best, since no one will or can start up from absolute scratch to experience all brands of clubs and get solid taste of every club. When one becomes a regular player, he has already got used to or been customized to a specific brand of clubs. This is not to say there is no scope of brands to choose. There is a limited group of manufacturers consistently making good quality clubs for sure. These are Titleist, Ping, Mizuno, TaylorMade, Cleveland, Callaway, Nike, and Cobra. Maybe, Adams can be added into the list. My personal preference will be Mizuno irons and Cobra driver and woods. I always say to my friends that buying golf clubs is just like one buying cars. If you like Lincoln, Cadillac or Mercede, go for Titleist or Ping. If you like wider choices of regular cars, go for TaylorMade, Callaway or Cleveland. If you like Chrysler, go for Cobra or Adams. What if I like Infiniti or Lexus, those high end Japanese cars? I go for Mizuno.

Especially in the irons. Today, all the top brands (maybe with the exception of TM) make at least one model I could play - as long as I had the proper shafts.

post #17 of 21

Callaway Woods

Cobra Hybrids

PING Irons

Titleist Wedges

Odyssey Putters

If you want to talk quality its Mizuno, no question.
