Hireko golf clubs, etc

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I did a search here and there seems to be a number of threads that mention Hireko Golf.

I recently purchased a used Synchron II 9 wood and loved it so I bought the whole set of heads, steel True Temper shafts and Golf Pride grips that I found at Dicks that I really love and put the set together.

Ive had them out a few times and they hit so well you almost feel like your cheating playing with them.

 

I guess the point is just to ask if anyone else has tried these woods out.

I didnt get the premade set because I dont like graphite shafts because of the way they feel.

Has anyone else tried the Synchron II woods and if so how do you like them?

Another question is has anyone bought used or tried any of the other clubs or club heads that Hireko sells?

I saw a couple others on the site that I thought I might want to try but I dont know enough about clubs to jump into anything without some idea of whether theyre good clubs or not.

 

Thanks in advance :)

I've used Hireko a little bit, tend to use Monark more because their prices are just a little better. However, clubs I've bought from them, a couple of heads and a full putter for my wife and it has all been excellent. As long as you know what to look for in quality you will get good clubs.

Monarch seems to be a pretty good site too. Definitely going to bookmark it.

The have the same club heads for the same price. Glad to see I didnt pay too much.

Hireko's equipment is top notch as is their Man Jeff Summit. If you have any questions at all contact him through their site forums or by email. I am not affiliated with Hireko in any shape form or fashion, but have used plenty of their equipment. I own 2 sets of their irons and 1 driver as I type.

Its good to hear the good reviews.

I absolutely love the clubs I built with the heads and shafts I bought from Hireko.

They hit so well its almost hard to hit a bad shot.

After I hacked off a tee shot the other day over being distracted I used two of the fairway woods I built to get to the green and couldnt believe the shots.

One was pretty much center of fairway just within easy reach and so I used a 15 wood to get over the creek and drop the ball on the right side of the green.

I love these fairway woods. They have a lot of loft and get a bit further than an iron of the same loft and you dont have to put a lot of effort in at all. They seem to hit better when you dont go nuts trying to nail the  ball, which is perfect for my game.

 

But then this Taylor Made driver is about the same. When I try to crush the ball Im lucky to get an out of control 220 yard drive.

When I cut back the power and just swing the club a lot less  aggressively I can get 250-270 yards or so and actually keep it somewhere on the fairway.

I agree that Hireko and Jeff Summitt design great gear at a great price. I'm seriously considering them when it's time to build new clubs for myself.

I purchased a club from Hireko recently convinced by their play-ability return policy that I had nothing to loose. WAS I WRONG! When I called to get the RA number I was told that I would have to pay the return shipping on the club, that seemed fair. but I would only receive a store credit for the cost of the club less shipping AND MY NEXT ORDER WOULD HAVE A MINIMUM SHIPPING CHARGE OF $19.95 meaning that the credit would in fact COST ME MONEY. Beware they hide their cunningness. Slimebags at best cheats maybe. By the way the clubs quality was good it just did not play to my satisfaction.

I would've had to go over their head. That's BS and not a satisfactory ending.

In my experience (ACER irons & woods), the club quality is excellent. Their technical staff who put the clubs together are very adept and helpful, based on my calls with their tech support staff.

 

Clubs are actually pretty simple at the end of the day. A head, shaft and grip. You pick the shafts & grips that you want (e.g. Aldila, Fujikura, True Temper, Project X, UST Mamiya, etc. Then you choose a clubhead...note almost all clubheads are produced in the same factories in China (except for Ping).

 

The key is fitting the 3 together with the right characteristics for your swing...

I built an Acer XF 4 wood, 12 degree driver and a Thriver (14 degree driver w/extra weight to be used with a shorter shaft). All good quality, weights within a gram of the listed specs. (All shafted with AXE shafts from GolfWorks.)

 

I hit the 4 wood well, As I've come to realize I really cannot stand the look of a 460cc driver head, I don't use the other two, even though I hit them ok.
