Welcome Hopkins Golf! - Page 3

post #37 of 44
Just ordered a second set of wedges for Hopkins. Should be here tomorrow. They gave me a great deal on upgraded finish, no cost, because the finish I ordered was out of stock. So I got the satin chrome before it was even listed on their site. It would have been my choice anyway. Got the 54 shelf grind custom stamping with KBS Hi Rev S and a 59 heel/toe.

The new satin chrome finish from Hopkins. Unfortunately they messed up my order so still waiting on wedge two, I assume they will resolve it. Though I must admit I like the tour raw better so this may be going back.

I'm very attracted by their grind/bounce recommendation system based on region and predominant turf type.  Golf Digest is still sending me mags even though I haven't reupped my subscription for a year or two.  Last issue was the hot list, where they gave Hopkins silver (which means basically fail, cause they give gold to all but a couple clubs reviewed in each club type), saying they had nice club setup but needed to work on "face and groove technology".

 

I tend to view that list like I do politicians.  Sort of owned by their corporate sponsors, so shouldn't take their giving an upstart company a crappy review too seriously.  But I'm interested in responses from those of you who've got the clubs.  How's the spin control versus something like a Vokey or a nice Callaway?

The HL means nothing to me because it's based on reviews from people hand picked by GD and my guess is most are LCD/mainstream types. It never surprises me the highest rated gear is not coincidentally the most popular brands. IMO the Hopkins offerings are basically an affordable custom Cleveland. My CG15's are nearly identical, other than the grinds, to the Hopkins.

Nice.  I love my Cleveland wedges, so that's a plus!

 

Yeah I assume pretty much the same thing about the HL.  More just some waste time golf porn than a real guide.  That's why I asked here!  My beloved Titleist CBs (I own the the 695s but have hit newer ones at the store) got a silver as well.  The negative comment was basically that the long irons are too hard to hit.  I haven't found that to be true (of course relative to my HC, not like I'm stiffing pins with my 3i all day!)

Thing I like is for the cost of a new 588 you get to choose the shaft and grind. I really like the Cleveland stuff, the CG15 was one of the best off the rack budget wedges I found. The sole of that not too far from Hopkins heel/toe grind. But with CG the options are limited unless you customize and at their prices it gets into boutique wedge range. With promos the new Hopkins came in at $99 each with upgrades. Though they hosed my order.

Shout out to HG for sending me a large Hokins Club Glove towel, dozen balls, HG hat, poker chip, ball mark, tees and bag free for the problems I had with my order. The big problem now is I don't want to send back the incorrect wedge they sent me. I will be calling them to pay for that so I can keep it. Great customer service.
