Maltby by GolfWorks: Any Experience With These Clubs?

As component companies go Maltby has a very good reputation for quality components. Back when components were popular with many club builders they were one of the top three companies. You can not go wrong with their product. 

Who were the other two component companies in the top 3, and are they still around?

Besides Maltby, Golf Smith, Wishon golf, Dynacraft. Golfsmith when Tom Wishon was head designer until the company was sold and Tom started his own business. Dynacraft until the business started to slow down. They were bought by Roger Maltby. At least when I was building clubs these were the companies I dealt with the most. Alpha was a late comer but was a quality company. 

Once Golf Smith was sold they converted to almost all OEM companies. Tom Wishon  retired and sold to a group in England although their products are still available from local companies. So in a sense all three are now no longer in the top three. I have to say Golf  Works/Maltby is probably the best quality component company out there. This does not include some OEM who now produce heads for the component builders.

I attended a GolfWorks school in 2012, and since then I have dealt with them mostly on golf shafts.

The GW/Maltby telephone service people are well-versed in their products. They give especially good info on the different shaft models and how they compare with each other.

If you have a question, call them on phone and talk to them. Hear for yourself.

I received my irons and have since played a few rounds with them. Not only are they great looking but I didn’t have any significant adjustment period.

Actually, I have purchased the PAKS in all cases.  Now, when I get them, I generally remove their and put on my preferred grips, as there is no choice when buying a PAK.   As I've had a club head fly off when doing my own assembly, I think it's better for me to buy them already assembled.  I'm happy with the shafts they use.

How are the KE4’s holding up? 

Im trying to decide which head to buy. 

Funny you ask. I was just posting a review. They are great. Very forgiving and they look good as well. Just make sure you get a shaft that complements your game. Highly recommended.

I did a driver fitting about a year ago, tried numerous name brand and component heads, ended up with the Maltby KE4 head, gained quite a bit of distance over my old Callaway and Taylor Made drivers, very happy and still using it.

Great!

i have a set of DG105’s I’m probably going to use even though I will need to add 3/4” to them I believe. I’ve played Dynamic Gold for since before there was a Gold, lol

The KE4 4 wood is amazing. I am considering a KE4 #3 hybrid head and swapping out my current head for it.

I recently went back to my first set of irons that I built back in the late 80's. They're Golfsmith Tour Model IV (similar to the Ping Eye 2).

I've been hitting much better iron shots with them but had to make a 3 deg. decrease in loft adjustment due to the fact that I normally hit a high ball, and the stock loft back then was greater than today's irons.

The Golfsmith was a very good component company back in the day, so I can only say my experience with component club making has been positive, if that helps.

    • I can't wait to hear about them.  I'm probably not getting new hybrids this year, but if I did, these would be near the top of my consideration list.  Please let us know how they are.
    • I read something recently in either Golf Digest or Golf Magazine and it listed I think the top 50 players and what they played for irons.  It was a blades/ combo set/ whatever set type of article.  I showed that they were very few players playing a full set of MB’s.  If I recall correctly, most were gaming some type of combo set.   Clubs like the TM p770 are just so good now, their benefits are more attractive to better players.
    • Thing is TV shows the good shots, the putts being made so we all think they hit everything close and make every putt. Go look up PGA tour proximity to the hole... you’d be surprised it’s not close like you see.
    • I would have to agree, as agile and strong as they are with a game of golf, they probably would look pathetic in a fighting ring. If and when they get their dup together that will be a good show. Although I think the media has hyped it beyond what it really is and would just be a competitive round of golf like most others.
    • I dunno. Watching two meat heads who probably have no idea how to fight isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I’d rather see them play some serious golf and really give the tour a show.
