Free club offer (Upswing Golf) are they worth it?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Has anyone called to get the free club from upswing golf? I have two of their free club cards from outings this year and am wondering if it's worth the $21.95 for the shipping/handling. One of the cards is supposedly a rarer offer and I can get a hybrid. I just don't want to piss away money just because I have the card.

Anyone with experience with these? I would love to hear your thoughts.

...so I'll take it that no one has either received these "free club" cards at an outing or never sent them in.

I hit it well. I keep the ball in play much more than I did before. I've also found that I get much better distance when I make contact in the upper 1/2 of the club face so I tee the ball a little higher than I ever have. 3 1/4 tees are a must for me with this thing. I tried 2 3/4" tees Wednesday and I did not get nearly the distance I do with the ball teed higher.

The biggest thing I've gained is confidence that I'm not going to blow a drive into the next fairway when I swing harder and come over the top a little.

how do I check whether my club is a genuine club?
A friend gave this to me.
It has a cicular dot on the side of the club head facing me. However, it does have an engraved no... What is the color of you club cover. It is orange/black for mine.

Mine has a serial number stamped in the hosel.

I have received cards for "free" clubs (plus S&H) from time to time (but not this year when I played Wicked Stick & Myrtle Beach National Southcreek) while playing at Myrtle Beach area courses. If I remember correctly, the club (or clubs) were not a brand name, or a name I'd ever heard of before, and my opinion was the club likely not up to Titleist, Cleveland, Ping, etc. standards and possibly was a piece of junk. Of course since I never got one of the clubs, who knows? I realize this isn't much help but at least it's a response . . .

Re: Free club offer (Upswing Golf) are they worth it?

I had one of these cards that was good for a hybrid. I thought what the heck... $21.95 and 10 days later I received a very plain looking 17* hybrid. You know what? It's honestly not that bad. There is no way I would pay them $99 for the club but it got me out on the range with a hybrid and I learned how to hit it. Today I received a 20* and 24* nickent 3DX hybrid that were marked down to $60 ea. While I don't know if I'll put the 17* "free/$21.95 hybrid in my bag I don't think it is a cheap POS like I honestly assumed it would be.

I've been getting offers from Warrior Golf. So I got some of there free wedges when I needed them. Warrior Golf wedges.
They are ok and worth $30 for 3 wedges. I prefer my Pinseeker wedges over the Warrior ones but they make great practice ones while I can keep them in my car and not worry about the heat ruining them and hitting balls in the dirt at work.

I went ahead and took the plung on the Upswing offer and I have enjoyed my new 56 sand wedge ever since. I had a friend give it to me who also got the wedge and he loves it. It really doesnt say much from me but my friend is probably a 10-15 handicapper and I have a watched him almost put it in the hole a couple of times with it.

I also got one of the cards from Warrior for free 3 hybrid. S/p was $23.50. I am tempted to get one but don't know if it is worth it. It says on the card that it retails at $199.99 which is obviously not worth it. Anybody else take up this offer?

I suspect it's like the social websites that offer such-and-such, a $50 value, FREE with your membership. But no one ever paid $50 for such-and-such, so it isn't really a $50 value.

I don't know anyone who ever bought Warrior clubs, and I've never seen them sold, so I don't know if it's really a $200 value. I got the offer - twice! - and I have two 3-Hybrids (Cobra Baffler, Mizuno MP FLI-HI), so I see no need for a third when I have two that I like.

Bad news, these guys are scam artists. Anytime you see "free" you can be pretty sure it's not (or at least there is something hidden in the deal somewhere).

Wow.

Thanks so much for this. This is exactly the reason for this board to prevent us from getting scammed. You just saved me a huge headache.

There are three or four guys where I play who have full sets of Warrior clubs and all are very happy with them. I can only remember who two of them are right off the top of my head. One is a 12.5 who replaced his Ping Eye-2 irons (not sure what kind of woods/hybrids) with Warriors and it seems his index has stayed pretty much the same. The other guy's a 19.0 who replaced TaylorMade Burner woods & irons with Warriors (woods, hybrids & irons) and his index has has improved maybe from 20, 21 or 22. [Of course I'm not suggesting the Warriors are the reason for the improvement].

I have never seen Warrior clubs/balls at Martin's (Myrtle Beach), Nevada Bob's, Dick's, Pro Golf Discount, etc. I'm pretty sure Warrior clubs & balls are only sold via the internet, mail order or telephone. http://www.warriorcustomgolf.com/

YES, I GOT THE DRIVER and the PUTTER! LOVE THE PUTTER and as far as the driver goes I gave it away to a guy in our 4some. HE LIKES IT A LOT! FEEL FREE to write me with any other questions about the clubs! PEACE OUT Schwindy

I used the cards for the driver and 7 wood. $50 total for both. Driver saw two rounds and 8 trips to the driving range and then snapped right at the head. My son has been using it. He hits pretty hard. Not sure if it can be fixed. I know there is no warranty any more. Really disappointed in the short time it lasted. Barely looks used but it sure looks broken. Would not do this again free or not.
